file rico loco: how to prevent the damage

Thanks for the ideas, always up for a challenge but this one seems too big for me - ) Ponticulus looks like best option but synergy is not too well - )
Too bad, I really like Rico but he seems pretty unplayable for now. Maybe an idea for a card in a new expansion set;

master, unique
pool cost 1
the minion with this card can prevent 1 damage outside combat per turn.

problem solved

"Unplayable" is an odd choice. I certainly played this deck:

Deck Name: 071027 Loco-Motion

1 Aredhel aus FOR VAL 5 Salubri Antitribu

I also wrote up a version five years later, though it has Lilith's Blessing in it, so I won't bother with a decklist.

I would have a second Heidelberg. There's many, many other ways to interact with his text, of course, though they don't interest me that much.

If you can't get your first Bomb out because you never drew one to play or discard, don't bring out Rico. If you can get your first Bomb out, he should rarely be taking any damage.

Thanks, using bomb is pretty obvious - )
I did not to intent to play him with bomb but the decklist is most welcome for future attempts! Seems like it could be a lot of fun to play. Tx!

I suppose I should have noted that this deck has no ousting ability. In theory, could just add x5 Deflection and x5 Conditioning. In practice, might want to remove some of the unnecessary moving parts.
