I’ve been working on a Frantic Omar deck for a while. The idea is to use Conspiracy Breakers and Frantic Coding to set up more quickly than you can with standard breakers and apply earlier pressure to all three centrals.
The hitch in this plan is that the Conspiracy Breakers have some pretty big weaknesses. They are really expensive vs. some common ice (Ichi 1.0, Data Raven, Tollbooth) and don’t have a lot of ice that they break for significantly less than other common breaker options. In short, it is very hard to justify taking the Conspiracy Breakers rather than Yog.0, Mimic, and Datasuckers. Of course, the traditional breakers are not as good with Frantic Coding since you have to fish them out of the heap.
One obvious solution here is to abandon the Frantic Coding plan and just play Temuijin Whizzard, but I’m trying to come up with something different than that. Specifically, I’m trying to come up with a fast-starting Anarch and I think Frantic Coding is the best path to that.
Has anyone had success with this approach? Is there a nugget of an idea worth pursuing here? Have you found a way to leverage the strengths of the Conspiracy Breakers and reduce their downsides?
