Breached dome is partially due to tight econ and partially for discouraging farming archives for turtle counters. Plus, with less Levy in the meta, it helps grind the runner’s stack down to the point where stealing obokata gets dodgy. Losing shock was a real bummer for chronos protocol.
Good idea with swordsman->macrophage. My thought was that while macrophage can (largely) shut off access to a single server with turtle, swordsman can open a scoring window. In practice, that hasn’t really been the case, and having a soft counter to Tapwrm seems like a reasonable move.
Aiki is kind of annoying with Obokata-- I’ve learned not to put it on the remote, but twice last night it facilitated HQ steals of obokata. Once the psi game let the runner draw and the second net hit IHW, for a net draw of 3, which was kind of funny.
I think I’m going to try to make space for a couple Ben Musashi and another Salem’s Hospitality. I rarely can pull off a neural flatline, and having neural-salem’s-neural as another way to kill the runner from 2 cards in grip seems like it would open up some options.
So I’ll probably swap swordsman for macrophage, drop a breached dome for ben musashi, maybe drop a cortex lock for another salem’s? Not sure. Slots are tight!
