Just come back from Gencon, 10-4 including 2 very winnable time win. My corp went 5-2 (with 1 time win against a Kate, but I forced her to run through CW+booth to trash the unrezzed ITD twice, so I think I can definitely win the econ war after that and I was ahead on points too.)
Played against 3 FaustNoise, 1 RegAss Maxx, 2 Prepaid Kate,1 Hayley
2 loses were both to Noise.
I don’t know if this is going to be my last bootcamp glacier big tournament report (certainly not hope so), but the meta right now is really frustrated for Weyland glacier deck.
I didn’t feel it that way when lots of Kate were in the meta, neither did i feel it that way when I lost badly to Val. But with Faust Noise being the new “Andrometa”, I’m a little burned out thinking about this match up.
People said parasite is never a problem for BlueSun, also you can tutor for Jackson and intern stuff back so it should be a good match up. But the severe clock Noise put this deck on is such a big deal, let alone Faust and David making remote much easier to break through. You could find Jackson in time, you could intern back some stuff, but you don’t really have a scoring window for the 3/5 if you saw clone chip with David online, and you won’t have enough time to score 4 agendas for sure. I don’t feel like I even have the time to install Jackson.
-1 crisium +1 CVS should be better now, as CVS can also bluff as crisium in RD/HQ to double the lady counter or discourage criminal to run HQ. Contract Killer may be helpful but it got milled in my games. I somehow blew away a PPVP Kate’s 12 credits Kati with it, so there is that.
props to ITD. It makes the Kate game much easier even without the need to click it. It also won me a game against a Heylay with Vamp/14+ handsize/GameDay/Grimore Faust/Levy/3 Medium/Hyperdrive. It would have been impossible for me to win with the standard build. All his 3 medium never get the second counter from my Tollbooth+sipderweb R&D. To contest it, she needs to pass raw booth first and ETR by ITD siderweb, huge tax.
