Love the article. Thanks @bblum. If I ever make it to a real tournment Blue Sun glacier’s been my goto deck for a while. The flexibility is great and I love not falling over to parasite as my HB decks aways seem to. It’s really great to see such a detailed commentary from an (or the) expert.
Two questions. Go down the list of your comments and there’s an awful lot of “don’t leave Curtain Wall rezzed because of Shutdown/Knifed/D4V1D etc.”. Is Curtain Wall all it’s cracked up to be? Or is there a case for other ICE in the 9-10 credit range that will pay off less from OAI but are more flexible in terms of placement and/or can force interaction rather than simply bouncing?
The second one is that there is a lot on the importance of forcing runs and how key NAPD is to that. But, as others point out, if you lose a Pri Req early, using NAPD as a trap becomes high risk. Is there a case for a single GRNDL Refinery (I guess you use Shattered Remains instead since you can bounce it) espec as you can fetch it with Bootcamp.
(Incidently my answers atm are I run one Orion instead of one Curtain Wall - it has the same weaknesses to D4V1D etc but you can guard it behind other ice more easily; and I’m currently testing a GRDNL).
