“Whizzard” is a story about a very wise and respected writer who finds himself drowning in tons of self doubt about how “well” he does his job. He comes from a lineage of great scribes and prophets and constantly places judgment upon himself because he feels he’s dishonored his family by becoming a writer solely to entertain the masses.
Being the caliber of writer that he is, people honor him and after he becomes well known, he changes his title to “Whizzard.” “Whizzard” (a misspelling of the word “Wizard”) means “a wise person.” This oxymoron is how he sees his career. To his peers, he is a wise soul with unbelievable power. To himself, he’s just a dishonorable child being treated as a king.
This is the deck I have been playing for a while now. It is awful to play against. I siphon them down to nothing and keep them there while constantly drawing cards and then using dataleak reversal as a psuedo multiaccess in order to put tons of agendas in the trash. Protecting DLR with fall guy. This deck was built because so many people play jinteki tax decks or jinteki trap decks in preparation for Honor and Profit.
this deck trashes most jinteki assets for nothing and snares and fetals do not work from archives.
Really happy to see the fine folks at TeamworkCast start a new, instructionally-minded series of videos called “Help Me Run Better.” As some of you know, I’m an professor who studies games and learning when I’m not ranting about Netrunner, so these kinds of things are inherently interesting to me both professionally and personally. Also, I’m a lousy Netrunner player, and would like to get better. Check it out – I’m not sure I agree with all of Krystian’s comments, but that’s also not why this is interesting. It’s great to see more people taking the time to slow down and stop and interpret games, both to clarify their own thinking on how to play, as well as the communicate how to improve to other players.
What are your favorite instructional Netrunner videos? Which other ones do you think I should link up here?
