The Living Card Game model I think is one of the best ways to do a card game like this, especially in light of that recent story, MTG card sells for $15K. It does kind of suck when there are these sodding great luls between posts.

>> No.40553296

It's pretty much the reason why I started playing Netrunner and dropped Magic. For the same price as a competitive Standard MtG deck, I can have the entirety of Netrunner up to the Lunar Cycle. For the price of a competitive Modern deck, I can buy all of Netrunner up to present release, get three copies of the Core Set, get good sleeves for both decks and probably throw in a playmat as well.

>> No.40553536

While the spoilered NBN barrier is nice, I think it would have been cool if the subroutines had been 'End the run if the runner is not tagged'. Makes for more interesting decision-making. Maybe we can have that as a future code gate.

That would be a pretty cool subroutine, especially if you put it on something that actually takes a little effort to break.

Thematically it's quite nice too - if they know who and where you are then they don't mind so much that you're getting in.

It'd also probably be the easiest ice ever to put a trap behind.

>> No.40555315

While I like the idea for future design space, NBN really needs some tag punishment that isn't an operation. The perk of this ice is that it increases taxation when the runner goes tagme, unlike Data Raven and Gutenberg, which stop taxing entirely. "End the run if the runner is not tagged" would place this new barrier in the same group with Raven and Gutenberg.

Part of me wishes it was a cheap, low-strength ETR barrier that increased in strength when the runner was tagged, but subroutines that turn on when the runner is tagged is probably more interesting.

Also Sub Boost.

>> No.40555413

I think it could go both ways. You make ice that rewards the runner for going tag-me, and you introduce harsher non-kill tag punishment to combo off. Either you tax them if they clear tags, or you punish them a la Closed Accounts or something when they keep tags.

There's Market Reasearch, Universal Connectivity Fee, PSF and DRT,

It's generally going to tax 3, since there won't be that many runners going tag-me. I like that Expose (the NBN card) coming out in the next pack will make Illicit ice slightly more viable, but Muckraker's pay-off simply isn't big enough. Even without the BP, I wouldn't run it. I'd rather run Shinobi, and even then I'd run Shinobi as a surprise kill, not a tax.

Patch is really good on Lotus Field.

>> No.40557418

the problem with ice these days is not that fixed breakers are too strong, though that is an issue, its that now there is no sweet spot where neither fixed breakers nor D4v1d can hit. Essentially any code gate or sentry ICE can now be broken for its #subroutines or less, except tollbooth, meaning that spending money rezzing a high strength ICE other than barriers is pointless, and having code gates at all is pointless, especially considering how many people are playing anarch at the moment

>> No.40557512

might as well kill myself

>> No.40557532

And adding high-strength multi-subs is power creep.

I don't think D4v1d is terrible, but it is a tough program to deal with, both in game and in the design space..

>> No.40557934

There need to be more "on encounter" effect ice. Also, the way most barriers are costed is kind of strange. Most of them are too expensive to rez given how cheaply they can be broken with Corroder and Lady. Most sentries are shit now because of NRE-Mimic. Code gates are actually headed in the right direction with high strength, low rez costs, and having strange effects.

>> No.40558086

>Most of them are too expensive to rez given how cheaply they can be broken with Corroder and Lady.
I don't think you should take into account how cheap Lady breaks ICE because it's kind of a special case, just like D4v1d.
Well, I say expensive in all caps for DRAMA, but it's kind of alright and fair. Wall of Static cost 2 to break. Fire Wall costs 4. Hadrian and Heimdall 7. Curtain Wall 11. Wotan 12.
Given their rezzes costs it's alright. Second time they pass it they are already paying one and a half what you paid for it.

>> No.40558101

I think barriers, with Corroder at least, are okay.
They are very much "it will cost you X, always and only X" - they're consistent and straightforward - they either keep the runner out, or tax them to get in, and they do it no matter what, and if you want extra you'll pay a lot.
That's okay, though more interesting barriers are also nice.

The one thing that's a bit off at the moment, imo, is that the runner has far more ways to get breakers out cheaper and recur them once they're used or trashed than the corp can, especially now ice-trashing is becoming more of a thing - it's just too easy for ice to become devalued, and the few ways that can counter it are pretty poor.
If there was a way to devalue breakers, other than the good but easily lost WotW and the hugely overcosted Morph ice, then maybe this wouldn't be so bad, but currently that's not the case

>> No.40558339

No because, Flare exists.
Seriously, after much testing this one is the best counter.

>Flare will burn your goddamn wrecking ball to ash.

>> No.40558468


Lady isn't really a "special" case. Just about every Shaper runs Lady. And generally only 1 at that because it can be scavenged. Now, Lady can be taxed, but it is generally difficult to do.

Knifed and Emergency Shutdown kind of kill the idea of rezzing the expensive barriers.


I wish there were more barriers like Hive.

And yes, there need to be more ways to "devalue" breakers. There are far more effective methods of ice destruction than program destruction/removal.

>> No.40558508

>Cutlery and Emergency Shutdown kind of kill the idea of rezzing the expensive ICE.
FTFY. Not that I agree.

>> No.40558576

Lady is not a special case because everyone plays it. That's not what I meant. It's a special case because it's pretty hard to quantify the tax of a one shot (or, in this case, 4 shots).

Faerie enters in this category too. It's easily one of the best killers in the game, but it's a one shot. Meaning it needs support to be useful. Often in the form of Mimic or just pure recursion.

>> No.40558686

Hey guys,
Started playing recently. We got a borrowed copy of a starter and we bought one booster pack.
So yeah, I enjoy the game a lot. I made my first Anarch deck focused on getting some mad stacks on my Medium virus and just burning enemy R&D with demolition runs,
I put some Tinkering and Makers Eyes from Shapers, as well as some Easy marks and forged activation orders from Criminals.
I play with generic Anarch guy and I kinda liked the whole buisness. I stomped my friend's NBN corp setup twice, but he admitted it was just a shabby deck building on his side.
One game was won by him just not having enough ice to cover all his agenda heavy hands and the other was a war of atrition, where I ended him with 6 stack of inhibitor on 6 stack medium + makers eye run, which cleaned his R&D of Agendas.

Question is. Do you tjhink it's viable, or is it just cheese?

>> No.40560870

>6 stack of inhibitor

Medium and burning agendas out of R&D is a totally valid tactic, though with more packs you may find traps in R&D ready to blow up in your face.

Also he could've purged virus counters and ruin your fun - was he aware of this?

>> No.40560908

NBN is not the best Corp out of the Core. It lacks the economy, tag punishment, and most of its ICE is very porous.

>> No.40560943

he was. He was just too busy furthering his agendas and he was like one turn away from wining this if he had enough monnies to further his agendas, so then I riced my armitage codebusting and got those 2 extra stacks on medium, as I knew he won't win next turn. Afterwards with extactly 13 creds I needed to break his hadrians wall with my current icebreaker setup, so yeah. That's how I won.

Anyway, good point you made on those traps. How to play around them?

Inhibitor is this 3 cred virus that gets tokens at the begining of each round. Then you can sacrifice it to move tokens on any other virus. Got it in the booster.

It's viable, but there are other cards and ways to do it that will make it better. There is a so-called "Big Dig" Valencia Estevez deck that uses a plan very similar to that one, but with more set-up to try and do that more regularly.

Some of the cards you mention (Easy Mark, for example) are not thought of as good because there are better options, but for what you have that seems like as good a plan as any.

A right pain to play against. Saw someone dig 29 cards down to score all 7 points in one turn.
Don't worry, your English is better than my ANYTHING ELSE. It'd take me all day to do French or German so well, per post.

And I know that some card translations are also very different -- "Backdoor Access" is probably "Sneakdoor Beta" in English. So again, no worries.

Either way seems good, but be prepared to lose in new and exciting ways. That was the case my first tournament. But it is a good way to learn, too.

Snare! is the biggest worry in most decks, and is mostly seen only in Jinteki (not Replicating Perfection) and some Weyland builds.

It takes 4 credits, so keeping them poor can help. Beyond that, run with more than 3 cards in hand (maybe even with 6 if it's a deep dig) and do not run on the last click of the turn.

Haas is sometimes okay, Hiro is rarely okay, Board is awful. Jenkins looks amazing but will be dependent on NBN's ice options. Jenkins + Haas combo likely terrible, but also HILARIOUS.

Unfortunately, Criminal (the faction with least destruction) is in decline right now.

Then janitors know. Closed cubicle in the far end of the middle w/no feet? Who even checks it? If they do, probably a prank, they call janitors to unlock, leave, he slips out. Can lower feet if bathroom becomes crowded enough it'd be used to blend in again.

I'm not sure.

It's just an interesting development, that Anarch has become strong enough that one of their lesser IDs is at least as popular as perhaps the most consistent ID in the game.

However, though he is a "weaker" ID, he's also one highly suited to the current meta of glaciers and asset/upgrade-heavy decks - Edward Kim is also anarch, but is most useful against almost the exact opposite type of decks, and thus isn't very big at the moment.

He'll always be good against meat-kills, but Weyland (well Blue Sun anyway) is far more interested in just being richer than god rather than splattering runners across the street, and the other big boys have far more assets than they do operations, so now is clearly not Kim's time

>> No.40586044

I can't really (I swear it was a thing at one point?), but Au Revoir doesn't so much run as much as it just clicks a 4-part Opus most of the time.
When it actually runs, they're very calculated (though sitting on a big pile of cash helps, of course)

Does French running (as in running, using a Snitch to see ice, then immediately surrendering for Au Revoir dosh) often use pic related?

>> No.40606331

I've been running a Supplier Iain who installs basically his entire deck. You sit back and set up for most of the game. When you see an opportunity to snipe an agenda from a remote, you Call In Favors for 9-17 creds and run in, preferably on click 3 so you can sell the agenda to Data Dealer on click 4. Your goal is to win via attrition: snipe all the agendas, sell them all away. Once you've taken 14 points out of the equation, you ask them to concede.

>Once you've taken 14 points out of the equation, you ask them to concede.
Haha, I love it.
How does it handle Fast Advance?

>> No.40606621

It's soul-crushing to play against. Start of turn take 5, click 1 Call in Favors for 15, click two install Overmind for 3 counters, click three run, click four sell the agenda.

Or at some point you just grow rich enough to Vamp them for 24 creds, have over 20 bucks left, then run onto the three-ice scoring remote that's completely unrezzed.

Against FA, you have two Account Siphons to slow them down with. Your best hope is to get an Off-Campus Apartment early to accelerate your set-up, but the main trick is not to bother fully setting up. Use Mr Li to find only the relevant breakers, maybe grab one HQ Interface along the way, then keep applying pressure onto HQ or lock down R&D if you know they have the Biotic in hand but lack the agenda.

My meta slots are a Feedback Filter and a Vamp, so if you don't find damage to be a thing where you are, you could probably drop it for The Source. However, this deck really doesn't want to take any damage and is perfectly fine paying 18 creds to prevent two Snares-worth of damage in a row, simply because you lack recursion. I've run out of credit tokens twice so far playing this Iain, and have had to resort to using a spin-down.

>> No.40606759

To add on, Vamp is great against FA too. They can't FA while they're broke, and while they're clicking for credits, you can get a lock on R&D, despite only accessing for one card at a time. The fact that you usually gain passive 4 defrays a large portion of the cost of checking R&D once per turn, since FA ice typically isn't that taxing. The passive money plus a Calling In Favors or two should keep you rolling in the dosh until you find an agenda, which then lets you gain 9, fuelling the next run, and the next, and the next, ad nauseam.

That's true. The grid is easily trashed, the Astro counter is a bit harder to deal with. It's best to start applying pressure when they're at 4 points. By match point, it's too precarious for you against FA. At that stage you probably won't have to forfeit agendas and can probably try to go for a regular 7 point win. It becomes very much a situation of whether you can snipe it off R&D first or if they can draw it in hand first.

I guess an alternative is to actually use your early Hostage to tutor for Data Dealer instead and aggressively hit all their servers. I did that once, when my NEXT Design enemy fed me two Bifrost Arrays from Archives to try turn off my ability. 18 cred boost early game felt good.

>> No.40607087

No Data Folding. It's too slow, even for this deck. In fact, the only reason I find it viable now is because of Off-Campus Apartment. That card is bonkers. And Overmind is usually a stopgap measure, coming in for 3ish counters most of the time until you find your full suite.

Against RP, you want Scrubber up asap to deny them Sundew and MHC. It's a slog, it always is against RP, but I feel that Iain stands a decent chance against any glacier deck.

God my IG deck is going to love that card so much.

>> No.40609956

Several reasons to this:
1) Running both UC and DF is a trap. It's supremely slow for too little reward. Therefore, you have to pick only one.
2) UC costs two, DF costs three. With Supplier, UC makes you profit from the get-go, DF hits your tempo. This is especially important because there are no Sure Gambles in the deck. Your best opening with Supplier sets you back to 2 creds instantly. You don't want to spend more just to set up.
3) I might not be able to get my memory up in time faster than I'm plopping down my rig. Sounds silly, but it happens quite a bit. UC doesn't turn off once it starts.
4) UC is a connection, DF is not. That lets me put it on Off-Campus for draw, and also fuels Calling in Favors.

As scary as Corporate Town is for my deck, I'm not too worried about seeing it. It's a hate card, and I can't think of many Corp decks that feel so threatened by resources that they're willing to devote deck slots to it and forfeit an agenda. If I see it, it'll be a tough game. But I don't think I'll see it frequently enough. My deck isn't that popular anyway.

Needs more MU. Why UC and Au Revoir econ package? Au Revoir already needs a ton of set up and digging, UC makes it worse. You're better off replacing the second Rachel Beckman with a Utopia Shard.

>> No.40614682

I really don't know how to build a breaker suit in criminal

So I should just stick with one - that makes sense.
UC takes as many cards, frees up MU and doesn't take clicks, but Au Revoir makes more money and costs less. MU isn't cheap though

Given that I can't tutor, would one Beckman be enough?

Okay talk to me about your game plan. What do you want to achieve with this deck? Do you intend to take your time to setup and then lock the Corp down from there? What's your ideal board state?

>> No.40615320

Essentially I'd like to set up pretty fast (hence Andy) with a good econ engine and being able to get into HQ either through sneakdoor or through brute force.
Not really into hammering R&D, but able to check remotes as needed - actually might want a little expose, now that I think about it.
Sneakdoor also does work if I need a gun or shutdown

>> No.40615828

Several things then.

1) Getting into HQ a few times won't be good enough without multi-access. If you want constant pressure, HQ Interface is your jam. If you want an opportune snipe, Legwork is the bee's knees.

2) Sneakdoor Beta has a good surprise factor, but it may not help much a turn or so later since they can just ice archives. It does have the added benefit of thinning their ice layers though, which can be good especially with ice destruction.

3) The best setup that lets you go aggressive quickly is the good ol' standard Andysucker. You're not gonna find a quicker engine that rewards you for pressuring the Corp. Sec Testing, Datasuckers, John Masanori, they're great for run-heavy decks. Check out standard Andysucker decks.

You definitely don't want two Rachel Beckmans, because her high cost and one inf means you don't want to see her early. She's a 'nice to have', but not vital to the plan.

>> No.40615998


The set up thing wasn't particularly about going aggressive fast, it's that I know the econ engine is slow, and I wanted to counteract the inherent sluggishness to get it going at a "normal" pace.

HQ interface I'll definitely look into - it works front or back, so the cost is probably worth it.

Upgrade, unique, HB.

5 rez, can only be advanced while rezzed,

At the start of the runners turn ,all Bioroid Ice in the server gains Strength equal to the no. of advancement counters.

The also runner gains clicks equal to the no. of advancement counters.

Best I can do without making a 5 inf Neutral card with a 20 rez cost that does nothing.

>> No.40621608

ITS WORSE! Not really, but it can have a worse impact on the corp of used incorrectly than simply sinking money and time into advancing it.

That's pretty bad, but I think this is worse. At least you can install-advance that, and it might screw over someone?

Nah this is so much worse than that. That one benefits you and your opponent. The actual card only benefits your opponent ;p

I'm a new player trying to pick up strategy. One thing I see a lot of experienced players say is that ice is meant to tax the runner. How do I know that my ice is taking the runner "enough?"

Also, how can I most effectively entice a runner into an ambush?

>> No.40625047

>How do I know that my ice is taxing the runner "enough?"
Some ICE is meant to gearcheck. This means to force the runner to come up with a solution (icebreaker). Quandary, Paperwall, and Chimera are example of this. ETR ICE but cheap to rez that usually cost 1-2 to break.

On the other hand we have ICE with several subroutines that usually cost 3 credits or more to break, like Ichi 1.0. Or directly ICE that cost something or directly can be paid within the subroutines. Examples include Pup, Popup Window, AP ICE like Komainu or Neural Katana, tracer ICE, and Bioroid that are passed using clicks, taking brain damage, or trashing the rig. All these are taxing ICE. The bigger the cost the runner has to pay, the more taxing they are.

>Also, how can I most effectively entice a runner into an ambush?
There's not a definite answer to this. It would make the bluffing aspect irrelevant if there were. Usually a runner with the Corp at match point will run anything advanced or he lose next turn. But it's always a bluff.
Sometimes you want to make it obvious it's an ambush so the runner think you're trying to bluff an agenda as an ambush and he runs it. Of course, he might just think it's an ambush anyway and doesn't run it.
It's a bluff.

>> No.40625085

Taxing ICE usually always cost the Runner more than the cost to rez after 1 or 2 runs. They typically have a lot of subroutines, or have high strength. Most ICE is taxing in some way, but the best ones are 'must break'. Good examples are Tollbooth, Fire Wall, or something in core set like Ichi 1.0 or Hadrians Wall.

Examples of non-taxing ICE is something like Ice Wall, 0-3 strength Code Gates (due to Yog.0), Wraparound, etc. Generally low STR 1-sub ICE that becomes 1 credit breaks when they have their breaker (Corroder, Mimic, Yog, etc).

Traps get both better and worse when you get better at the game. As a general rule of them being close to match point is a good way to force trap runs. A runner who doesn't want to lose has to run everything you advance if you are already on 4-5 points.

Top 8 had like 5 NEH Butchershops. I'm such a fucking fool for thinking Weyland is better at the kill than NBN. 2 of my matches had people who could survive 6 damage easily (Exile and Logos Criminal), had infinite money, or they ran Utopia/IHW/Wanton/Keyhole and wrecked me anyway.

Weyland is so bad right now, which is sad because O&C already came out. Blue Sun is still the only real playable ID, and even then it's easily the worst of the "top tier" Corp IDs. Though some people have done some interesting things with Argus. I wonder if the next cycle is going to help Weyland...

>> No.40625416

Rp and sunbdew say otherwise

>> No.40625462

Not really. At least, not by enough of a margin to matter.

BS lets them recover sunk costs, and can sometimes help for money, but there are HB decks that can come close... and both RP and NEH aren't exactly poor.

>> No.40625536

Non-Blue Sun IDs need to score agendas to make money. If you can SMC out and stop a Weyland from scoring his Hostiles with Clot or block his first score, you can easily roll over them economically and just megadig R&D.

It takes really creative deckbuilding to dig out of that hole as Weyland (Snare RNG or Traps), while HB and Jinteki can Ash/Caprice/Biotic their way out of a bad situation. Their money isn't tied in with their agendas and is typically clickless, minus Celeb Gift.
