As noted in previous thread, I like how Harbinger interacts with her classic Knight+Rook Caïssa build - every time the corp trashes an ICE to get rid of a Caïssa, the runner can also trash card(s) from R&D.

Cuttlery suite, obviously, >>36837830 by forcing the corp to rez more ICE.

Amped to maximize your deep-dig openings when you put the corp in a situation when it cannot rez ICE.

Reina has nothing in particular. She's just a strong ID ability that gains a bit of edge with derez and ice destruction. If the Corp economy ever takes a hit, she will be strong as she can pinch their money even further.

I'm not a huge fan of French Raina art, and I understand Reina is all-in-destroy-Weyland mode, but they should've given her the slightest touch of femininity. If her hair was down in the original art, it would make up for the cyber-jaw and the obviously dope-as-fuck muscle suit.

>> No.36839504


I've been cutting my teeth on building that ICE destruction Cuttlery + Caïssa deck for some time now.

And it's hard to fit things.

One good aspect is that Harbinger can advantageously compliment or even replace DLR. It becomes a nice form of pressuring by itslef.

The bad thing is that there's kind of a counter synergy between the cutlery suite and the caïssa suite: you don't want to be the one to trash your ICE-hosted cards, which slows you down even more than the classic builds if the corp plays it right.

But then I'll have to wait for the box before I start building in earnest.

Hey. I have a beginner question. I am a big cyberpunkfan and wanted to play a card game for a long time. Now in the beginning I want to play the game casually with my flatmate and see if I/we want to play more etc...

Now my question is one starter/core set in the beginning enought or is there a data set that is really good for starting/getting in the game? Just asking. Would also be my first card game.

>> No.36840317


Well, there are *neutral* options.

And I also think it's hard to design cards - and a context for those cards - that fits the faction.

But it is kinda maddening to always look at the card pool and see very little that fits Link and the general play-styles of the faction. And you know, given they're adding Kim, I was hoping for *something* on that front in O&C.

>> No.36840386


Really depend on people. I have a couple of friends who just have the core set and are perfectly satisfied like that.

Obviously, once you're into the game, having all those new options and cool toys becomes tempting, but the core set is solid enough on it's own.

All the more if you're not planning on playing against people that aren't using the full card pool.

>> No.36840512

It's weird, but most link stuff makes sense thematically

Anarchs have 2, a criminal leader and a freedom fighter
Criminals have 2, a not-so-ex spy and an ex aristocrat
Shapers have 3, a hobo, a guy who's always on the move and an artist.

>> No.36840595

The Core set is plenty for you and your flatmate. It comes with 4 corporation decks and 3 runner decks (total of 134 cards) that you can use as pre-made decks while you're learning or start mixing factions when you're ready to build your own decks.

>> No.36840619

Gotta love how what basically could pass as a hard-left, pro-worker syndicalist inspired ID is being seen as a criminal leader (not that the two are exactly mutually exclusive, but you'd think Kim was a mob head with that moniker).


Only issue if you go for only one core set is that you're going to have some difficulties in making four decks (2 runners and 2 corp) at the same time. So you'll ahve to be be willing to either swap decks or cards.

I don't see why anyone would assume he's any kind of leader. Human First and Humanity Labor are both pretty big organizations. The kind whose leaders wear suits and ties. Kim is clearly just muscle.

>> No.36841183


Just look at the Kim Quote on Human First. It really sound like leftist rhetoric, not some criminal leader.

I really like what they've done with Human First - it has that element where you can understand and empathize, think they're right and worth supporting to a point, yet they're not painted as perfect "good guys". It's more nuanced than that.

The good they're trying to do comes attached with a somewhat vicious angle too. And not even just the violent, class-warfare bits - which at least could be justified, but the luddite, somewhat - I'm not even sure we have a right term for that, let's go with xenophobic - side.

It's incredible how good and suggestive (no, not like that) the dev team of that game can be at imparting those things given how little space it has to do so.

ChiLo City Grid is amazing with Troll. I haven't quite figured out how to expose it the most efficiently, but 2x Shoot the Moon 2x Psychographics is a pretty good threat.

Since most of the tools are in NBN, I think I have room for biotic labour. FA is a bigger threat, I believe. 3x Tollbooth for StM, 2x Shell Corp to put on the ChiLo server root to pressure the natural reaction to Tagging decks - turtle.

So, I am wondering what new toys Weyland -Because we built it recieve that will make actually playable.

>> No.36872320

I honestly don't know if BWBI is ever going to be all that good. Its not an issue of advancing ICE being bad, its needing to spend a click each turn to make use of your ID. If BWBI said "You have 1 additional click to spend each turn. Use this click only for advancing ICE" it would see a lot of play even though you would need to pay for the advancement because you could still get everything else done in a turn. BWBI is a dead ability on turns you don't advance ICE and a minor boon on turns that you do, I'm not sure if new toys will be able to change that.

The most powerful IDs so far have been the ones that reward you for doing what you were already going to do: Kate, HB:ETF, NEH, Andy (rewards you for playing the game).

I think the best BWBI can hope for is Exile level: fun jank that would probably be more competitive if built for a different ID.

That's not really the problem. If you take a look at Noise deck in the core you have 3 vital pieces there. Ice carver reduces anything from 4 to 3, so you don't need to use Wyrm on those. Any 5 strength is reduced to 4, which means 4 credits to reduce to 3. The real problem comes after that, adding 2 credits for each strength point. It turns into a Femme Fatale situation.

I'd say the issue is more that Kate/EtF have been poorly designedrather than BWBI or Exile.

I mean if you look at other IDs, they at least force to tailor your deck-building and play-style to fit them. Which is good.

Both Kate and EtF are perfectly neutral - they reward you for doing things you can't not do, and they reward you well for it.

That's more the issue.

Eater and Crypsis aren't exactly doing the same thing. Crypsis is more going to compete with Darwin if anything, I'd say.

Not being able to access on a eater run makes it very efficient for certain tactics, but a real drain for others (classic access-based ones in general).

In the end, as always, it's all going to be about being the right card for the right build.

I was betting with a bro that BWBI would become the new cancer just like RP after the big box comes around and after looking at the spoilers, i'm going to have to eat my combat boots.

Here are the reasons why. The old BWBI cards and ICE had synergies with amassing huge number of counters to make giant monsters via more subroutines(woodcutter, swarm) or strength(shadow, ice wall). Cards like commercialization(gain credits per advancement counter) and Shipment to kaguya(2 advancement counters) also have synergy with it. The newer cards however change the ice subtype or lower their cost meaning that it defeat the purpose of amassing a huge number of counters.

Trick of light and the upcoming constellation protocol will benefit moving of counters from one place to another, space camp will be giving free counters, but do note that using BWBI ability does cost a click, so how often do you actually want to advance to make things efficient? Unlike the other IDs that give you benefits while you are doing something, using a click a turn feels rather counterproductive since it can only be used on ICE.

Will it be a fun deck to pilot once O&C lands? Of course. Will it be flavor of the month? Maybe. Will it be strong in a tourney? Unlikely, but i am hopeful weyland will put the fear of dying in all the criminal scum.

Honestly though, i looking forward to try a deck where i'm just moving counters around the ice like an astrologist mapping the stars.

It honestly depends on what your deck's strategy is.

Going to for siphon debauchery or keyhole spam? eater has you covered. Endless parasites? You might want to take a wyrm. Atman is atman. Darwin is darwin. To me, crypsis works as a silver bullet/trump card/ace in the hole when some corp player thinks he is safe behind some cheap ice that you can't break. Plus it is a fun addition for Never-run Noise as a rude awakening.

So you eater your boots if BWBI paces high in a tournament or is it if there are so many like RP currently is because it taxes clicks effiecently?

>> No.36879316

Random thoughts time:

- Heavy adoption of Eater might just make Paywall Implementation a lot more interesting.

- One big issue for me with BWBI, is that, with the quantitative advance-able ICE (whether STR or subroutines), you're making the bet that the click you spend on boosting the ICE is going in the long run to cost the runner more than it did you. Significantly enough to make the trade worthwhile. That's a lot less likely to happen with the tools for ICE destruction getting better and more numerous.

- While most corps want draw-reliability in their ICE selection, I think BWBI wants diversity first and foremost.

- The qualitative (Morph) advance-able ICE in conjunction with Firmware Updates can allow you to shut a Cutlery event as it is played by changing type right after. Worth keeping in mind on top of the other mid-run types change shenanigans.

- Unlikely to happen, but the idea of using Burke Bugs as a way to protect another sentry from Forked is smile inducing.

Question, given the actually relatively low number of transaction you can afford to run in a BaBW deck, how much value do you think you'd need out of BWBI's ability to make the swap a worthwhile trade off ?

You're making an econ denial deck that uses Deep Red, Vamp, etc. Siphon is very good in this deck already.

It does allow them to rez, yeah, but only on HQ. This is exactly the reason Indexing is good.

Bishop and Ice Carver are really sweet with the fixed breaker suite. A permanent -3. The only problems you can find are Janus, Susan, Cell Portal, the new ICEs in Order and Chaos, and IT department (which I'm convinced it's too OP).
D4V1D fixes all those problems (more or less), but adds a few others. The str 4 blindspot and the necessary recursion comes to my mind.

I'm surprised I haven't seen more people experimenting with running interference against Blue Sun, since people tend to run huge ICE and not be sheepish about rezzing it thanks to the ID ability.

I guess the issue is that its pretty much targeting blue sun and not much else, given its influence cost. Still, a well timed running interference early game would be quite the coup against some corps. Stuff like tollbooths are a lot less appealing to rez at double the credit cost, a lot less taxing for you compared to them, too.

>> No.36903338

Because it's in Crim, there are already far better cards in faction for it.

Basically, Running Interference is pay 4 to maybe make them waste their ICE's rez cost.

Emergency Shutdown is pay 0 to make them waste their ICE's rez cost (and good against all factions).

>Would you think it's a good idea to play the fixed breakers, Atman str 4 and D4V1D? Is it too clunky?

I've been considering it, but even more than the clunkiness, the cost gives me pause. 7 creds for a 4 Str Atman is at least for now a tempo killer in Anarch. Not to mention the 3 influence cost. Still, probably should (and will) try it, but really I'm not convinced.

>I've seen it played in Reina before, but basically the conclusion was that it should have been Siphon. It may just be one of those "I'm edgy" things.

I don't think it works that well with the Red Queen because you're already doing the micro-transaction thing all game long. You're running often to make the corp rez often, so there aren't that many possibilities of a big server with fully unrezzed layers of ICE, which is where you want to use Running Interference. You don't really need that sort of heavy hitte, and it's too costly for what you might gain from it.

I mean, the thing with Running Interference, really is that you're either hoping that the corp will bleed itself dry to protect one server - which is unlikely, at the very least spends an amount of credits that will make your initial 4 creds and two clicks investment worthwhile, or you're looking for a free run with no ICE rezzed . And it's rare with the Red Queen that you have such a server, and even then that it happens to be a cost effective proposition.

If anything I'm thinking about it with Leela.

Given the Veterans Program, I gather it's at least partly a thematically built deck ?

>The strategy is a simple one - go fast, bounce the runner off instead of trying to tax them.

Well, it is basically Jinteki's Rush ID, so, at least to me, it's a given.

I don't know about that config. Too many Vet Programs for me. You can remove up to 9 Bad Pub with that deck, but can only suffer three at most. Overkill for me (unless your meta is somehow incredibly aggressive with the bad pub I guess), even if you feel like you *need* it because of the NAPD.

Then there's your ICE selection. Those Pups feel weird for me. I gather that they're here for the rez cost. But they're a taxing solution for a deck that just doesn't plan on taxing long term. Your NAPDs are here to be stolen more than scored, so even on that front I'm not sure they're that interesting.

You have no ambush assets that can make use of the Mushin. Thankfully you can Mushin a Shi.Kyu, but I'm not convinced. Shi.Kyu is often going to get costly. If you want it to deal 3 net damage - which tends to be the sweet spot at which the runner is going to at least consider taking the -1 agenda even if it's not fatal, you're spending three credits. By which point a Snare! is better spending I'd say). And then with only 3 ambushes for so many agendas, with a 27% agenda density here, and willfully porous defenses, I would go with a bit more myself.

Last just something to consider (something I'll have to test myself next time I build for that ID): How do you think Daily Business Show would replace Howard in that config ?

No, I'll need to get octgn up and running, or wait a long time, before I can test this one.

Veteran's is partly thematic (something I always like in a deck) partly for BP. With ice like that and NAPD I just don't want to risk it.

Mushin is mainly for speed, as it's much cheaper to Mushin+Ice than it is to try and get San-San out.
It works best with Himitsu-Bako, but Caprice also works pretty well. And if you've not seen the deck before then there's still good ol' mindgames.
I might consider dropping Shi Kyu for the classic Junebug, but I feel that could be trying to make the deck do more things - being put back by an agenda point is pretty good.

Yeah, I wasn't that convinced by Pup (or Yagura, really), any better suggestions?

Something to unseat our Lord and Saviour? Never!
At the risk of not being able to retrieve stuff from archives (and costing 2) I'll be able to get what I want much faster (it does work for mandatory draw, right?), and it's slightly harder to trash than JH.
In a rush deck it could definitely replace him, though the number of 1-pointers here means I'd keep him. And NBN could easily have both.

>> No.36913868


Well, looking at my own Medtech build, which is both a bit outdated and quite different in its build, I'd say:

- Yagura is fine as far as I'm concerned, it's adequate, low cost R&D protection with a bit of cycling on the side.
- I like to have a Swordsman in that deck. Early game AI can really be a blight on your rush start.
- Guard is a bit (too) expensive, but in a meta filled to the brim with Inside Job-ing Crims, it has saved my bacon more than once.
- Rototurret tends to be under-appreciated in that configuration. But it's one of those where it can work wonders.

Looking a bit more in detail at the econ side of your deck:

- Fundraiser + Rush strategy means you're basically looking for mostly binary ETR ICE I'd say. On that front, I don't know about Eli. The click taxing is nice, but I'm not sure of how much it is to your advantage here.
- Following that, how about splashing for an Aggressive secretary ?
- Mental Health Clinic is nice for zero cost (and fits the theme) but kinda counter-synergistic with Shi.Kyu.
- Mushin is obviously great econ in that deck, on top of speeding up things.
- In my mind, there's only one moment when you want to play Fundraiser, and it's for rezzing your SanSan. On that front, I think in most configurations I'd prefer a Celebrity Gift. CG and show your SanSan, install it. The runner now has to make that server a priority target, you haven't lost any money in the SanSan yet. If it survives the turn, you can score from hand, if it doesn't, the runner is that much poorer and you still have money in the bank.

I don't know, just random thoughts. Also seriously sleep deprived right now, so I don't know how much sense I make.

>> No.36914022

Rototurret (and maybe swordsman) seems like a good idea, even with the cost.

Binary ETR is what I'm looking for, I think, Eli was just a "without thinking" choice. So cheap, so reliable, not perhaps the best choice.

Shi Kyu isn't there to kill, but I may be overestimating the value of -1 Agenda Points.

CG vs MRF - I have to reveal my entire hand, and pay a click, for the same amount of cash, but at least the runner stays poor.
Goddamn Jinteki, why are you so generous when you make money?

I think I'll keep MRF, as I don't have the threats (or the guts) to run CG like that. In a bigger, nastier deck, maybe, but not here.

But who knew those medical equipment programs were so good at fighting other sorts of infections, eh?

>> No.36914079

>Shi Kyu isn't there to kill, but I may be overestimating the value of -1 Agenda Points.

One issue is you have to push the Net-damage threat/tax high enough for the -1 to land. If the runner is already in a configuration where s/he can enter your server reliably, and has a full hand, how much will you have to pay to make it happen ?

See, that' the thing here. You have a fair selection of two and one pointers, so unlike the 2 or 3 pointers only builds, you can't really evaluate the gain you get from that -1 as effectively. The positive of the hybrid build being that landing several *can* work to your advantage, when it doesn't with the two others (or only if you land the three of them in a two pointer build, and how likely is that to happen in a rush deck ?). But landing one, let alone several, will probably prove to be more costly within your configuration.

Though I'm not certain of that, which is one of the reasons why I was asking if you had played it already.

You're almost right, they are the most straight forward faction, but they play with their stuff. They Escher, Tinker, False Echo and Paintbrush the ICE. Their icebreakers are the more reliable with their strength (both atman and their core breakers), meaning their Escher, Tinkering and paintbrush have a double purpose not very exploited by the meta. They get insight knowledge from R&D with Deep Thought and the woman in the red dress to know when to run.
And of course, the professor gets ALL THE TOYS.

I was thinking the other day, I don't think The Professor is ever going to hit big because in a way I find him better tailored for league play than tournament.

With his ability and the extensive faction tutoring, you can build some very nice Swiss-Army knife deck that can do well against mostly any build thrown at it.

That's the kicker: "well". Not great. He needs a very diverse meta to be worthwhile, and in the current flavor-of-the-month-driven one we have, I'm not seeing it.

Maybe I'm just being pessimistic in my evaluation.

I like the flavour and background in Netrunner
I like janky combos.
I like it when I can combine these things

I've noticed that Weyland seems to have a sweet underwater base, which they use to impress/intimidate people.

In the game background it was Weyland that did most of the rebuilding after the Big One that wiped out a lot of california.
Breaker Bay was probably one of those construction projects, so if they wanted to build a sweet underwater base that'd be as good a place as any.

Off the Crisium Grid is a cool janky combo, but it's expensive for what it does, even for Weyland.
Off the Grid isn't a region - it works well with Breaker Bay. Now that could just be an unregistered server somewhere in the Bay area, but that's not very cool, is it?

The Off the Grid facility under Breaker Bay is pretty damn secure.
You have to access a Weyland Headquarters node server, and crack Gagarin's grid at Promontorium Agarum (a lunar mountain, and the art shows the station there is pretty imposing)
Then you have to access the HQ server again, just to steal the location access. Then you can think about breaking in...

Off the Crisium Grid under Breaker Bay is the perfect place for top-level executive meetings and critical projects - from something as simple as an advertising campaign, to something as audacious as a Government Takeover, this is the premium secure operations facility, continuing Argus Security's proud tradition established by our Sealed Vaults and the Glenn Station (in collaboration with Gagarin)

General idea is to use bootcamp to fetch the asset I think is the most dangerous for the runner to have to deal with, and then force them through hell trying to trash it. Hostiles and self destruct keep certain assets and agenda protected. Through it all the intention is to build a scoring server.

I assume it's that because spending 4 clicks on an ICE and having it be destroyed is worse than spending 1 and having it destroyed.

That's a fallacy though, as spending clicks to advance reduces the cost.
