I’ll try this. sbliminal is synergetic since they will be spending turns drawing to compensate for the programs you trashed, or they will avoid running to prevent EMP
Grail not so bad with the assumption that you will be targeting their ability to spam parasite.
I am torn between therse three ways to keep trashed programs/recursion from returning to the game:
- Blacklist, but either you lack the economy (if you want enough ice to support 2 remotes) or you like the ice count (with 10ish econ events) for 2 solid remotes.
- Targeted Marketing: This is a soft measure, the runner will probably let you have 10 credits to play a key piece if he must, plus all the usual weaknesses of any current.
- Chronos Project: probably 2x, but that’s useless early game and it can be stolen, and with HOK that’s a lot of 3/1 agendas. On the plus side, influence free, and bonus points for style (Chronos all the way)
