-More cargo than points spent; you can have 4 cargo at S+S for just 6 points.
2. HMS Patagonia
-I often add Administrator Scott Bratley to effectively decrease the overall cost of this combo to 5 points, which is criminal.
-One of the more underrated gold runners in the game, and great flexibility with various French crew. Can make a solid case for #1. Definitely more overall effectiveness than the slow support gunships that are unlikely to affect a game.
-The combination of cargo and guns sets her apart, making her one of the best and most-used Cursed ships.
5. El Afortunado
-Underrated option due to the Patagonia outshining her.
6. Carrion Crow
-Speed wins games, and combat engagements. I’ve just never had good success with a gunship moving only L.
7. Devil’s Pay
-Sounds great, looks cool, but perhaps overrated at this point. The Algeciras, Intrepide and others don’t help. Both this and the Crow are a risk, but if I’m going to go with a super cheap support gunship, I’ll take the speed since I can’t rely on the ship anyway.
-We agreed in the BC set review that this one is actually worse than she looks.
-Not much you can do with her.
