So far so good. Excellent info (thank you everybody). I'm bummed that I missed the Steadfast MU on Educated Officer. Rookie mistake. And following some additional card research and reading the posts, I'm seeing that Skill control is not the right way to go from Syndicate in this deck. I don't think I can go 3 affiliations here, and since I only need the Kopesh on James Logan to combo, I'm going to have to hard-cast (MtG, sorry) Shriven and Resolute on Agency Bodyguard. I may still splash a couple Cthulhu cards to single resource for Called by Azathoth, since it's really good here too. So here I am with 30 cards in:
3x Canine Guardian (Agency 1/1 C)
3x Agency Bodyguard (Agency 2/2 C)
3x Experienced Muscle (Syndicate 2/2 C) Solid and supports Logan, so it seems like a good play.
3x Peter Clover (Syndicate 3/3 CCI) Since it's so difficult to remove Ancient Ones, I figure maybe I can just avoid them?
3x Richard Upton Pickman (Syndicate 4/3 CCI) This guy is my Ancient One killer I hope.
3x James Logan (Agency 5/5 CCCA)
3x Shriven and Resolute
3x Flanking Maneuver
3x A Call For Help (to quickly get Logan or Bodyguard)
