There really isn’t anything fancy here. We have a standard Tag -N- Bag deck. As you’ll notice all 12 available influence is spent on 3 Scorched Earth operations borrowed from Weyland.
I’ve been successful in flatlining the runner 3 times with this deck so far. I think it requires further testing but like I said, it has worked well up to this point. I actually tweaked the deck before I posted it on tumblr. Originally, I did not have x2 San Sans and had x2 ChiLo City Grid cards instead. The trash cost is an amazing 6, but as you can see I only have 1 set of ICE that traces so it was difficult to pull off the requirements on ChiLo City Grid for it to fire and give a tag. In fact, I never landed a tag with ChiLo City Grid. I know, I know… it shouldn’t have been in there.
I also added in x2 Anonymous Tips. I have a total of 43 cards in the deck and could probably get rid of the Anonymous Tips and throw in another Bernice Mai and a third San San. As far as ICE goes I wanted it to cost the runner not just money to break the subroutines, but money to encounter the ICE. That’s why I added Data Pike, along with Pop-Up Window and Tollbooth. I’m still a bit mixed on Bastion but it’s worked well so far for the early game. Private Contracts for click economy and Ghost Branch to land tags if they think I’m fast advancing all day long.
I’ll run this a bit more. I’m really venturing out of my element here as I am a die hard Jinteki player and have been since I was introduced to this game in November of 2012.
I think those who laud Malcolm Turnbull as some kind of progressive hero would do well to remember that he has spent the past two years opposing and rubbishing one of the most important infrastructure and economic projects in Australia’s history.
