I’ve got a casual tournament coming up soon, it’s essentially a GNK, but the rules are being amended to allow new players to join in as well who don’t have access to loads of cards.
The specific rules are similar to the Core + Deluxe format but with some tweaks:
We’re allowed 3 x Core Set
We’re Only Allowed 1 Deluxe Set in total regardless of our Runner/Corp choice.
That second part is the weird restriction as we can’t mix and match deluxe boxes. So chances are if I’m playing Anarch as the Runner I’d best go with Weyland as the Corp due to the larger card choice from having Order & Chaos to hand.
What kind of archetypes could work with this tweaked format? Any deck ideas from builder veterans? I’m thinking that Criminal Gabe and Jinteki PE could work quite well. Failing that Weyland Scorch and some kind of Anarch deck. I’m not convinced I could make a good Shaper or HB deck in this format and you’ll have to do some major convincing to make me choose NBN as that will leave me with some very limited Runner archetypes.
