Sets I own: Core, Cyber Exodus, Creation and Control, What Lies Ahead, Second Thoughts.
I'm not adverse to buying more sets, I eventually want to buy them all anyway but I'm just getting started here.
- 2x Breaking News
- 2x AstroScript Pilot Program
- 2x Restructured Datapool
- 3x Priority Requisition
- 2x Matrix Analyzer
- 3x Pop-up Window
- 2x Data Raven
- 2x Muckraker
- 3x Tollbooth
- 2x Cell Portal (2 influence each)
- 2x Ice Wall (1 influence each)
- 2x Chimera
- 3x Bastion
- 2x Melange Mining Corp
- 1x Levy University
- 2x Ghost Branch
- 1x Akitaro Watanabe (2 influence each)
- 1x SanSan City Grid
- 2x Closed Accounts
- 2x Psychographics
- 3x Hedge Fund
- 3x Sunset (1 influence each)
- 2x Archived Memories (2 influence each)
I feel like I got a lot of good ice combos in this deck:
2x Pop-up Window + Chimera let me infinitely rez Chimera
Chimera + Akitaro Watanabe also infinitely rez Chimera
3x Pop-up Window + Cell Portal + Akitaro Watanabe lets me trap runners in infinite loop unless they can break a 7-strength code gate (with Yog being the most popular code gate breaker out there that could be tough)
Matrix Analyzer + Ice Wall lets me set up something where the more you run a server, the harder it is to run that server in the future, great for protecting R&D or HQ.
Data Raven + Muckraker lets me force the runner to accept a tag or end the run, then end the run if the runner is tagged & maybe add a whole bunch more tags.
main problem is I don't have enough economy cards in this deck, a lot of whether or not I get a good hand depends on whether or not I can score an early Melange Mining Corp, but I'm not sure what to take out. I can probably take out one Sunset and one Cell Portal, but that's still not enough.
- 2x Magnum Opus
- 2x Femme Fatale (1 influence each)
- 1x Crypsis
- 2x Corroder (2 influence each)
- 2x Yog.0 (1 influence each)
- 2x Ninja (2 influence each)
- 2x Omni-Drive
- 2x Dinosaurus
- 2x The Personal Touch
- 2x Plascrete Carapace
- 3x Borrowed Satellite
- 2x Sacrificial Construct
- 1x Aesop's Pawnshop
- 1x Ice Carver (3 influence each)
- 3x Diesel
- 3x Test Run
- 2x Modded
- 3x Infiltration
- 3x Sure Gamble
Once again, it feels like I'm having problems with economy. Modded saves me 3 creds on an install, Magnum Opus is incredible, Sure Gamble is also good but can only be used once, Aesop's is not a very dependable source of income since you have to trash something, I never use Infiltration to gain 2 credits, so those don't count. Really means my only econ cards are Modded, Magnum Opus, and Sure Gamble. What else can I do to gain credits fast?
I'm also potentially thinking about swapping out Corroder for Snowball, Snowball is, imo, just as good as Corroder, but it's a shaper card and that lets me free up some influence that I could use for Datasuckers instead.
