I started playing Netrunner about a month ago, and Ive been Netdecking just to get my feet wet and learn how the game works.  This is my first noobish attempt at trying to make an "Original" deck. The goal is to throw a bunch of Advancement tokens around. Having said that, It most likely needs some tweeking.  What can I do to make it better?

If you're giving away bad pub, you'll want more explicit end the run ice and some ways to destroy breakers, or the runner will be able to ruin your identity ability.  Alternately, if you remove the Profiteerings, the Veterans Programs will also be unneeded, and you can use something like Fetal AI or NAPD Contract instead.

That's a lot of agendas and not a lot of ICE IMHO. Also there's not much cash generation either. I'd advise looking at cards like Pad Campaign, Sundew and Mental Health Clinic.

With Tennin Institute, you want to think about your gameplan for using your identity. How do you discourage runs? To do this, you have to flip roles and consider yourself as the Runner. What things make you pause and spend a turn not running?


a) Painful ICE - either hazardous or costly

b) Recovery rounds - being broke, needing to draw, or replace lost tools


To create these situations, things like taxing ICE, program destruction, tag punishment, and various traps can be used. You have some of these, consider what you might do to ramp up the pressure. Cerebral Overwriter is an amazing trap, and works great with Mushin-No-Shin. Landing a single one with 3 or 4 counters will completely change the tempo of the game. Komainu is really painful when it lands, taxing while on the board, and Inazuma can turn it back on. Power Shutdown is a nasty way to kill programs if the Runner is not prepared.


If you go the taxing route, consider dropping the Bad Pubs since they will work against you. This is an interesting list, experiment and have fun!
