I’m running more because you have to keep some Grail in hand. Based on what happened on the day I’d even potentially swap an Interns for another ICE. Grail is particularly vulnerable to Parasite and you need to be able to support it. Cobra I thought I’d trial, but it wasn’t useful being itself so low strength.
Assassin was very good. Most players were burning resources on Grail and other low strength but awkward ICE, I don’t think they really expected a big, healthy sentry. Given how rich Palana can be, I’m even tempted by something like Shinobi! I think a nother Lotus field is probably worth it too.
A lot depends on getting some econony early. If you get an early Sales Team scored, you’re generally ina strong position. The worry with all the ICE is cost of constant rezzing, especialy versus Whizzard. Sometimes you’ve got to let the Runner in and save your money.
