Maybe? Nothing interesting to do with it in Weyland atleast, other than using it in Titan and on a High Risk Investment. Gain 3x the Runner's credits is pretty good, might make a good Sandburg deck.

Okay, looking through the edits I have noticed one thing - how much should it refer back to Original Netrunner?

The main bits that got deleted in the new edit is stuff that's basically irrelevant if you know ONR - but as it is, if you're new it requires you to read the page about a dead game to know what the fuck is going on

It was irking me a little bit. Any reference to the old Netrunner should be in its own section "Comparison with the old Netrunner", also that reference to poison counters in Magic? Why? That's an interesting piece of trivia, but has no place in explaining the rules of the game.

Yeah, it does have a "what's the same/different" section (as it did before), but the comparisons aren't confined to that.

There's also a couple of other Magic references which might need dealing with - though some terminology like Mill and Tutor have become really embedded in netrunner

Also 'correcting' US/UK spelling is petty and could go on all day - there's a reason it's frowned upon on most wikis.

Is there any way to attack some sort of note when editing, so anyone who comes in after you knows why you put something there?

Because I'm going to go in and change the "just check out a page about a dead game from 20 years ago" stuff to just putting in the gameplay and terminology, even though that makes the page a bit longer

"Samurai" have a code, that doesn't mean the code is "go up to someone and get in their face asking to be shot" - those goons weren't samurai, weren't executives and they weren't Jinteki, so respect or treating the with honour isn't necessary.

It's just me or the Shaper description feels totally wrong? From the first sentence to the last it feels like it's describing anarchs.
Going back to the Shaper description in the rulebook, the Shapers are motivated by curiosity and pride. Self-improvement is the key word here. I have no idea how he gets from that to "doing it for fun". Although I guess certain depictions of Chaos Theory and Smoke don't help.

I wouldn't call it "for fun", more like self-satisfaction. The feeling you get when all pieces of a puzzle you've put together actually work, there is a deep sense of pride attached to that feeling, and it wouldn't be there if it were just for fun, although they themselves might tell you that what they do is fun.

Just jumping in and not really keeping track of everything, but

Neither Exile nor Jesminder fit these though. If anything the thing that Shaper IDs have in common is their goals are usually idealistic, compared to Criminals materialism and Anarch's antagonism (berate me if I'm using these terms wrong).

We actually don't know enough of Exile to say one thing or another. What I do know is that I have a cousin that likes to take spare parts of machines to build new machines, which I think it's what Exile does, and I think it's pretty Shapery. Again, self-improvement, self-satisfaction, curiosity, and pride.

I have no excuse for Jesminder though, even her ability doesn't feel particularly Shapery. To be honest she came in a weird cycle aswell. She certainly doesn't fit anarchs or criminals, and idealism and love for her sister are probably her most notable traits.

>> No.49917757


She's so obsessed with the same ideology as her dear sister, who know what she did to make sure its a reality? She certainly doesn't give a shit what it would do to the plebs, but she's prob a high caste, and everyone know how they see lower caste plebs.

Sacrificing said dear sister is not beyond the realms of possibility.

I wish Smoke were anarch. The real anarch stealth Runner.

>> No.49917898

Going by Motivation, whatever Exile's goals are probably has something to do with his past, perhaps to avoid repeating the same mistakes, which would fit under self-improvement. Jesminder's desire to help her sister could fit under self-satisfaction. If you need a single catch-all term though, idealism still seems a good fit, unless I'm misusing that word.

At the very least it looks more like she's working behind the scenes against any targeted efforts at her sister going from the Kala Ghoda insert, so while there's no way to know if she did anything bad to further her sister's campaign, it's likely that her efforts are mostly defensive in nature (supported by her ability to avoid tags and using her console to nope stuff like Scorched Earth to the bottom of the deck).

Given the high-stakes nature of politics, it is not something anyone involved to come out clean, especially if they want to win in said politics.

If anything, her ability to avoid tags is offensive in nature, especially when many tag-based events (the siphons and vamp in particular) are brutal attack options. Someone gotta kick down those poor kids worried about their parent's (and their future) jobs.

Maybe swap the Viktor for the 3rd Adonis and Akitaro for a 2nd Enigma, since he probably won't pop up reliably enough to be useful. You're vulnerable to Mimic and Yog, but you'll probably be ok otherwise, especially if you can rez (and they stay rezzed) your big ice.

To what expansions do you have access? Core and Honor and Profit? I'm assuming because I see no Celebrity Gift nor Trick of Light in the deck.
Viktor is good taxing ICE, but it is no hard ETR. I'd go with Icewalls replacing those Wall of Static, and going with 2 Enigmas for cheap code gates.
Nevertheless, it's not like Viktor can't work, so you have some leeway there. A Runner clicking through a Viktor to find an ambush on the other end can die pretty fast to double Neural EMP.
There is no reason to overlook Inazuma, it can win you games in front of a Komainu if you have House of Knives scored, it can replace Neural Katana easily.
If you have access to Creation and Control, Cerebral Overwriter instead of AggSecretary.
I think you can cut some ambushes for economy, 1 Junebug 1 Akitaro for 2 PAD Campaigns.

About Neural Katana, in core I think the card is supposed to go with Chum for the kill, right? It increases the strength to 5 and do 3 extra net damage for a total of 6. I've never seen it work before, but the idea is there. Just like the Chummed Data Mine, although this I've seen it, but it's not enough for insta kill.

>> No.49920659

>Core and Honor and Profit?

What's the gain in Ice Wall over Enigma? Inazuma can't win the game on its own, and swapping it out for NK seems to leave Ice dangerously thin. Truthfully I'd love to have it, but I'm finding cutting deck size difficult. Same with Chum.

File: 95 KB, 750x552, 1474934186045.jpg [View same] [iqdb] [saucenao] [google] [report]

Ice Wall over Wall of Static. 2 credit save on rez for a gearcheck. Advanceable if you need it to tax.
You say that about Inazuma but Data Mine is still there. NK on the other hand will be broken for 1 by a Mimic since it's the best icebreaker in the core set.

To be honest, I think Pup took Data Mine place in the deluxe for cheap facecheck ICE that can ping the runner for net damage, and while Pup can get pretty taxing, Data Mine does a single ping and goes away.

File: 1.64 MB, 1750x1283, 1477252636511.jpg [View same] [iqdb] [saucenao] [google] [report]

What an odd question. No, there aren't many situations like that. WoS is still taxing 2 credits, but if you want a taxing barrier there's no better than Ice Wall, which you can adjust. Maybe Quicksands since it boosts itself, or Eli 1.0, but those are not core/deluxe.

>> No.49921691

The quick answer is 'no', but I'll take the opportunity to mention that after deciding which kind of ice suite mentioned in >>49920013 you'd like to go for, you can then choose your ICE by comparing them to a certain baseline, which is by looking at how efficient common icebreakers can break through them. As a general rule, <=2 is cheap, while 3=> is taxing.

For Code Gates, look at Yog.0 and Gordian Blade.

For Barriers, look at Inti, Corroder, and Paperclip.

Sentry breakers can be more erratic, but you'll usually see Mimic and Mongoose, or from the core set, Ninja.

Here we're trying to choose between Ice Wall and Wall of Static. As the previous anon said, Ice Wall only 1 to rez, and Corroder can break it for only 1 credit, which means it doesn't hurt the runner's bank as much. Meanwhile, Wall of Static is 3 to rez, and 2 to break with Corroder. Both of these completely stop the runner until they find a breaker to get through it, but Ice Wall has the benefit of being advanceable, which lets you raise the cost for breaking it. At 5 strength, it costs Corroder 4 to break.

So Ice Wall definitely looks like the ice to pick. However, you must also consider if you can spare the influence cost and deck slots, as well as the fact you need to spend a click and a credit to advance it to higher strength.

These considerations is also why I suggested the second Enigma over Viktor 1.0. Both are 3 to rez, and while both are in Yog range, Viktor costs more for Gordian. However, Viktor also costs 2 influence, and the runner can click through it if needed instead of paying, which means the server is less safe. But, the other anon is right that if they click through a Viktor and run into an Ambush, they might just die from it.

So yeah, picking your ice suite is a balancing act in efficiency and purpose, and can be a fun puzzle once you get the hang of it.

Checked, and you're right, black is usually west side. Funny it never occurred to me despite living here.

Biotic Labor seems at odds with what you want to do, which seems to be free rezzes and scoring behind deep ice. Maybe cut those for more economy, and some of the barriers and code gates for a couple of sentries? Why Wendigo, by the way? Odd choice when the runner can click through most of your ice. Look for a backup plan when nothing goes your way (no free rezzes, poor, etc.).

>> No.49929192

its funny you mention those two cards, I had played a few games with it on jinteki and cycled out a couple cards that i didnt seem to be using, and then decided to try those two out as they weren't originally in it. the biotic labor i thought might be interesting since with the money, i can score some of those beta tests right away, though I'd probably run into the problem of running out of credits. the wendigo I just thought I'd try cause I had the influence, and figured i'd give it a shot. haven't tested it yet so I dunno if it'll work out. I'd love any suggestions...primarily for econ cards. I'm not sure what else to really put in simply because I don't have a ton of options

>> No.49929355

For economy, PAD Campaigns are reliable as usual, or Server Diagnostics if you feel ballsy. You have the option of going silly by putting The Root in, though that could mean less ice. Eliza's can get some free rezzes in though you give up surprises, or you could go for credits with Melange.

For ice, Lotus Field is nice against Sucker decks, and NEXT Silver actually combos with Mother Goddess. IQ is pretty cheap to rez while you don't have many cards in hand. Tollbooth makes for a nice free rez target too, as is Archer.

While its nice if you can pull that off, its hard to make the most out of it outside ABT priming, and 3 inf is kinda steep if you have more then 1.

>> No.49932868

I think the 3 influence is what saddens me the most about Precog. Too expensive and with limited use to splash out of faction, and in faction Jinteki has better things to do than caring what comes up first in a commonly spiky RnD. Could've been pretty fun otherwise, like a non-Power Shutdown AD deck for example.

>> No.49934158


Yeah, 3 influence is definitely a mouthful. In core I would love it to use it to deep dig for Weyland combo pieces. But that really was an unaffordable luxury. Even more so now the factions has better options.

In some slower Jinteki decks though? I still like it really.

Thanks for the tips, I'll mess around with it. I think I underestimate pad campaign. I kind of assume they're just gonna get trashed but I guess in reality, 4 credits of the runners money vs 2 credits of mine (if rezzed) is probably worth it for that, huh.

My only problem with the root is that since a good amount of my ice is relatively expensive, even with the stuff i have to rez it for free, I don't know if I'm going to be able to adequately protect it.

Frankly I just wish I had more cards to play around with, but as it stands, I've played a few games and am probably around 60-40 for win rate, which seeing as I'm still pretty new, I'll take it. It's also helping me to figure out how to play runner, cause my runner game kind of sucks, but watching some of these runners trample me has been eye-opening to say the least.

EoI is horrible. Landing a tag is far too easy and there's no prevention for EoI. It's actually cheaper for the corp to let you steal a 5-3 and then swap it for a BN than score it themselves.
It's only 1c more expensive if you biotic out the breaking news.

I agree it's too cheap, EoI should maybe cost the tag as well. Maybe MWL it.

There is prevention though, of sorts - as well as tag prevention, if you just want the corp to lose then all factions have ways to burn corp agendas.

>> No.49949548

Breaking News seems like the crux of the problem rather than the card itself though, unconditional tags that stat when BN gets swapped is pretty bad. Making the tags go away after leaving the corp's score area, and have the tags be preventable would probably make it hurt less.

I pretty much went "did I miss the memo, when did this happen, apart from breaking News?"

Little Engine atleast ETRs and has high strength, making it somewhat taxing even with the money gain sub. There's plenty of better 3 strength brain damage cards available. It'd still be funny to look at the Runner's face if they read the second sub for the first time though.

I like the base idea, but just compare with Viktor 1.0 as taxation. Why would you play this given the liability? All the worse given it's a Yog.0 target.

At 0 cost maybe. Allows you to bluff, and land that Brain damage... granted that thing is probably going to be played more like a Trap ICE - the corp will land that brain and then install over and trash to prevent the HQ danger.

2 is probably still not enough. Given that you're looking at Little Engine for inspiration, you could go:

John Henry 0.5
5 rez, 2 strength
The Runner may spend one click to break up to 2 subroutines on John Henry 0.5.
>Do 1 brain damage
>Do 1 brain damage
>Do 1 brain damage
>Do 1 brain damage
>Do 1 brain damage
>Remove all brain damage. For each brain damage removed this way, the corp may trash 2 cards from HQ to prevent it.

Higher rez because holy shit 6 subs, lower strength for easier decoder breaking and Parasite target, two subs per click because it's plenty taxing already, considering 3 subs per click, more expensive removal prevention to make stuff like "trash 5 cards, Runner keeps 5 brain damage" less likely. I'm having trouble wording it so that the Runner may remove 0 brain damage and the corp can still trash cards to "prevent" it for HQ shenanigans.

Work into making one server cheap and valuable to run, make protecting that server a real tax to protect.

I'm thinking it's partly a problem of, IF you're supposed to be the FA faction, with all the tools it entails, then your FA-able Agendas need to be scaled down accordingly. Or at least the designer needs to balance synergies with other faction in-tools accordingly.

Regardless of fluff issues, imagine Breaking News as a Jinteki or even HB agenda... I don't think people would be bothered that much. Whereas from core it's been a causing issues (early game BN into double scorch might be a statistical anomaly, but try explaining that to a new player that did nothing wrong apart from not drawing a counter-play soon enough; I have a somewhat similar issue with Posted Bounty, a card I love a lot more from a design standpoint in a card pool that incorporates I've Had Worse), and things have necessarily gotten worse the more effects tied to tags appeared.

Other 2/1 or 2/0 are relatively well balanced I think (Kusanagi has still me scratching my head... Only played against once so far, but one agenda counter per supernumerary advancement token I think would have been more indicated).

Hell as much as I've complained about 3/2s, I think with ABT, the randomness makes it fair as a FA target (15 Minutes can be infuriating, but I also think it's fair).

It really doesn't help that tags themselves are really strong due to how they are the easiest way to interact with the runner's board state, and getting even one usually ends the game. All tag giving cards should be able to be played around with, not by adding silver bullets in your deck, but actually changing how you run to keep tags in mind, which Breaking News doesn't give you besides running that taxing scoring server every time they put something in, or RnD locking the corp with Jackson Howard and SAU.

Most of their other agendas besides Astrobiotics and Breaking News are actually pretty sedate, except maybe Quantum Predictive Model and Market Research (which no one uses for some reason), both of which are in a faction that has Data Raven.

Had a friend of mine play my Nero deck against my BoN deck today, and I was really happy with how Obelus is working in Crim, especially with Legwork. I wonder if Vigil might be better for more consistent draw, but atleast Obelus gives you the complimentary draw even you didn't get any agendas. I feel like dropping Sports Hopper since I never know when to play it, perhaps I should just put it down quickly next time?

My BoN deck was severely poor however, hovering at 2 - 6 credits for most of the match felt terrible. Losing PAD Factory feels bad, but maybe the 2 Paywalls, 2 GRNDL Refineries, and 2 Melange Mining Corps will make up for it. And if my 2 DRTs don't pull their weight then I'll probably throw in the 3rd Paywall and Refinery to replace them, or keep it open for Preemptive Action.

If she does then it probably won't be due to her ID ability atleast. Also, wasn't Geist doing pretty well recently?

The former is 4 influence and drawing depends on the corp, the latter requires 2 link and a wasted click, unless with pancakes, which further uses up influence and a card slot. Atleast with Find the Truth you can head for HQ first, then hit RnD the second time, though that revealed draw could hurt.

Of course, you could do all of it at the same time every turn for maximum silliness.

WitRD is 4 influence, but in a connection deck you can Hostage it, so you only need one, which you're more likely to get on time to boot. Certainly, the corp can chose to draw, but then between it Equivocation and Fisk you're looking at 3 forced draw for one run (at which point investing in System Outage on top doesn't look half bad).

And yeah, GSSC needs link, but link right now is good value, and I certainly don't mind losing the click if going for a run once per turn deck.

>though that revealed draw could hurt.

>> No.49972681


Nerobelus. I literally like the sound of it.


By the way, talking of System Outage, been experimenting with a deck for a while and I must say while it's still not there (though I definitely think it can be a killer against rush) and I don't know how to make it work any better, there's definitely something to it.

Anarch so far, though I've been switching between Keung and Whizzard.

- CBI Raid (with Wanton Destruction back up).
- System Outage/Ixodidae/Gordian Drip
- Optional: Diwan back up to increase the cost of defending centrals. Fester back up for trigger happy purges.

Optimally you want to be able to lock R&D to destroy Assets/Upgrade from there. You want the corp to be starved for options, being forced to draw or click for credits. Any install, any click used on an asset ability is one not hurting the corp and/or feeding you).

So far I'm having issues fitting that plan with a rig and shell that make it shine. But I'm really liking it. It's - at least for me - something completely different from usual decks. The thing has its own pace; it has a modicum of anti-econ, but is not about it proper; it has a modicum of control to it, but is not about it proper either.

Yeah, I know, I just saw how Fisk was profiting from Titan misfortune and banking on it with a bit of misdirection.

Mechanically I'm thinking that Lamprey is just easier for the same effect if you are already running centrals. Difference being the server you're running. But given Fisk is crim we should have plenty of cards to threaten it.
Which makes me think that the best way to use System Outage would be by banking effects while not running. I have no idea how to do that though.
I haven't played Rumor Mill in Fisk yet. I was going to bring my Silhouette deck to game night tomorrow, but maybe some Fisk configuration would be more interesting.
Or maybe I should wait for Misdirection first. Yeah, probably.

>Which makes me think that the best way to use System Outage would be by banking effects while not running.

That's *part* of what my >>49972681 set up does when you're down to it. Which is the issue I guess. I have a hard time linking it to a wait-and-see strat that I can convert to a win. I can stop the corp in its track, hurt it and profit from it trying to get back on track, but I can't tie it all to a win strategy.

I've tried camping with DDOS/Run Amok but I find it doesn't need that shell. Doesn't really synergize with it.
I'm tempted to try something with Incubator (probably starting from that old Hivemind glory turn rig), but that's even more moving parts to something that's already difficult to pull.

Hmm, you're right, I didn't consider using tutors to need less copies of a card, WitRD certainly seems like the better option now. And while I'm still iffy on GSSC, especially if you already have WitRD, at least the ability is optional, and you can maybe combo it with Jak Sinclair. Would you be able to play Fisk Investment Seminar if you lost your first click?

Having been burned (and burned) by overconfident attempts at scoring behind a single ice, you're absolutely right.

Ooh, that one sounds fun. I want to suggest using Noise since you're already using plenty of viruses, but I don't really mind seeing less of him. Maybe Cyber Threat for free runs on servers with unrezzed ice? Since the plan is forcing the corp to draw, maybe Utopia Shard and Haemorhage? I don't think you can get away with not running if so, but you can atleast benefit from every run you do make with Obelus and Turning Wheel.

I have something similar with MCH and Casting, but it drops the Snares.
Might try dropping the Ghost Branch for Casting, seeing how good it is.

I find though that MCH + Consulting needs more than just that to be effective (also I always seem to get the Hall last) - my deck that uses them actually drops some assets to fit them in, and uses Midseasons and BOOM! (also Subcontract, just because) It's less reliable, I think, but still does okay.

>> No.49981789

Despite Museum and 54 cards, this doesn't really feel like an asset spam deck. With those there's usually a snowballing effect if you delay to trash any important cards, the assets in these are pretty disconnected from each other, with maybe 1-2 direct combos. Plus it feels like you'll have difficulty rezzing everything with only Beanstalk Royalties and Hedge Funds funding the whole deck. And as a side note, Cleaners doesn't work with Argus' ability since it says 'suffer' instead of 'deal'.

I think you can go for swamping the runner with tags with Ghost Branch, Data Raven, Zealous Judge, and Prisec. The DRTs are nice to have but I don't think they're particularly crucial. If you're still going for asset spam, maybe consider swapping the DRTs and Judge for something else and fitting in Public Support somehow. Definitely swap out Cleaners for credit agendas.

>> No.49982014

>'suffer' instead of 'deal'
That doesn't matter, it's the runner that suffers.

I've got a fairly low credit overhead, with no big trace I actually don't struggle for money - though I'm thinking Ice wall -> Bailiff and swapping the Caduceusii for something.

DRT is surprisingly good - raven and prisec usually provide the tag, and it's great with snare - the last window to rez before access but when they can't jack out (4.3) is great

>> No.49982254

Maybe swap Housekeeping with Paywall to profit off the runs the Runner will be making? No idea how long it'll last with 12 agendas though.

>> No.49986681


OK, so to try and articulate things better: reason I find your deck weird is that, as anon mentioned, it has neither the strong and fast recursion of classic asset spam, it's not set up as a glacier trying to bait taxing run - doesn't really have the ICE for that, and it feels to me a bit too... diluted for lack of better term for a kill deck.

One think to look out for is that - and that's a common issue with Weyland - you're offload so much of your econ on agendas, which is very powerful, but double-edged as a random steal can totally kill your econ tempo.

In case you're looking for another angle, probably not indicated for this, but Liz Mills spam really make me want to go all out on bad pub, with Executive Search firm support (which also allows you to go for the judge, incidentally).

Wondering if Bailiff - or Negotiator even, I like it a bit better now Mongoose is a thing - could not help as remote single ICE for added tax/econ.

Search Firm spam... that's an idea. A strange idea, but I'm intrigued.

I guess what I'd say it's closest to Supermodernism - it's dropped the destroyer component, because that's damn hard to pull off these days - but it's got assets too. It's not quite asset spam, but it doesn't protect the assets often either.

You mean to replace it? Negotiator's a pretty good tax, it'll probably never fire, but outside of Mimic it's atleast a 3 credit tax on all the other Killers, which means they'll probably just pay through the program trash and give you 2 credits. You can even pump it with Sub Boost and Paperclip would still cost 3 to break everything.

Atleast you'll get a mini-boost with Bryan Stinson later in the cycle, though that 'runner has less than 6 credits' requirement is going to be steep. Also, I wonder if a stealth hate card will be out whenever, like Turing or Swordsman.

There's a Fairchild-ish art revealed already for later packs, so it's almost certain. Maybe a '2 clicks to break a sub'? Though I guess that's significantly weaker than a 3.0 due to e3 Feedback Implants.

I think so, that one was for Intervention wasn't it?

I think making a regular ice that isn't too taxing for regular breakers like Bastion or Spiderweb would be fine, except it would have something that happens when a stealth credit is used, such as "whenever the runner spends atleast 1 credit from a stealth card during an encounter with this ice, they must spend 1 additional credit from a stealth card, if able."

I'm considering the posibility of turning Paperclip and BO my staple for crim breakers, probably supported by either datasucker or multithreader.

Stealth's more about an untraceable source of credits (and possibly data) than it is about hiding, but as someone who likes illicit ice anyway and wishes it was better, something like "if runner spends at least 1 credit from a stealth card during an encounter with this ice remove 1 BP or gain 2c" - doesn't have to be credits, could be damage or something, just something for when the BP's gone

>> No.49998441


Good thing with Keung's breakers in Crim is definitely that the innate recursion saves you that import.

I'm thinking the faction can actually withstand the high breaking cost of Blach Orchestra better than others, both because they have the credits, and because of bypass/derezz shenanigans, though that remains to be proven (and of course Anarchs can just focus on trashing, though the money can be tougher for them).

I do think that's a possibility that's been on the radar of many, with testing still ongoing.

>> No.49998523

Even with Datasucker, 3 credits for 2 subs is pretty iffy. Maybe add e3 Feedback Implants for further support on the 3+ sub code gates? Personally I would rather import Deja Vu for flexibility on what to recur, especially since if you're meeting a program trasher deck, they'll likely have Ark Lockdown too. Plus you can re-recur Deja Vu with Same Old Thing. That said, I haven't had the pleasure of meeting a Marcus Batty deck.

While we're at it, I'm thankful none of the code gates have 'trash a program' subs yet, barring the 'resolve subroutine on another ice' stuff.

3 credits for 2 subs is what cost to break an enigma using Keymaster Zuul, which is my current "default". With enough influence I'd choose Gordian Blade, but then I still need recursion.
Last option, Peregrine, and using influence for deja vu. Datasuckers are necessary too. Expensive to install though.

I also thought about E3FI, it's definitely handy. It enables Grappling Hook as an extra tool.

For code gate - destroyer, there is Merlin and Lycan though.

Personally I went with Peregrine + Deja Vu myself, and I use Nero so the sentry destroyers scare me less. I only have a single copy though, so if I do lose any breakers, like to Merlin and Lycan, or from damage, then the game is probably lost. If you do go with Black Orchestra though, having Passport to make the central runs cheaper is probably a good idea.

So I've read pretty much everywhere that advance-able ice is bad for the reason that you never really want to be spending a click and a credit to go about advancing it. But are there examples of decks that include a decent amount of advance-able ice and still manage to be good? Throwing in cards like space camp and shipment from kaguya, things that help advance those cards passively/faster than simply clicking away at them, or that upgrade I can't currently remember the name of that gives all ice in a server +1 advancement token if its advance-able.

Maybe not a deck entirely made of this type of ice, but a decent enough mix (ice/firewalls, wormhole, orion, maybe a nebula?)

>> No.50003259


The issue with advance-able ICE is two-fold: first, as you noted you have the investment issue. The clicks, cards and to a less extent the money used to advance cards don't make for a negligible cost.

But the killer really is how widespread ICE destruction has become, or at the very least the perception of it (and to a lesser extent I guess Leela has similar effect). Going bankrupt on that non-insignificant investment at the drop of a hat really hurts, and you rarely if ever come on top in that transaction.

General idea is to try and slow the runner down, tax them, while heading toward either the government takeover win, or the surprise junebug. So far, it's usually the junebug, because no one expects that in this deck. But I'm wondering if I could probably do this way better without focusing on advanceable ice like orion and nebula, and getting rid of cards like space camp.

>> No.50003809


Pretty ballsy agenda selection, I like that. That being said, I'm thinking with that agenda selection, you're going to have a hard time playing those Aggressive Negotiation.

As much as I can trash talk about advance-able ICE, I still really like them. Hell, I even play BWBI from time to time.

I love Wormhole, but if you're going to go all three, you might want to try and load on more exotic subroutines. ETR is always good though.

Apart from theme, I'm not certain what Gagarin does for you. Space Camp works better in HQ or Archives (and you have nothing to NA for that bluff). I'm not certain the tax from the other Assets/Upgrades is worth it.

Orion being unique, I'm finding three is overkill (might have been worth it had you played The Twins I guess to trash HQ copies for repeated encounters).

Given you only have space ICE beside ICE Wall, it's your only long time target for Space Camp. Might not be a huge issue, but I'm thinking you'll find it can be one in some games.

Last but not least, you're pretty tight on econ. Playable, but not comfortable I"d say. You can probably thin your ICE suite a bit to squeeze some more.

>> No.50004111

Sweet, thanks for the advice. Gagarin I chose namely because it helps tax a bit, pretty much guarantees I can drop pad campaigns unprotected because runners tend not to want to spend 5 credits to get rid of them, as far as I've seen. I also feel like it helps in throwing people off as to the fact that as much as I'd like to score government takeover, junebug is what usually wins me the game. I feel like if I went with Argus (the more likely ID I would use that I have access to) people would be more willing to defend themselves. I don't know for sure though, I'm very inexperienced so that's my take on it.

I agree with pretty much everything else said though, I'm definitely going to be tweaking this. I like how it plays out in general though so I definitely think its workable, and I agree that even if it's not that great, I really like the idea of advance-able ice, and so I'd like to at least try and make it work, if I can.
