I was reading one of the posts on Run the Net where @TheBigBoy mentioned:
For the agendas, I’m going to default to a 9-agenda suite rather than an 11-agenda suite .
This got me thinking, what are the common Agenda suites people use and why? So, I turned to Google:
Nothing in the last two years came up.
Really? We don’t talk about Agenda compositions? I searched here, and a whopping two posts come up, one where Vanity Project is suggested to give a 6 Agenda suite, and a lengthy discussion about the value of 1 point Agendas. Neither of which hold the answer I seek.
So I ask, has no one discussed this since Hollis? And if not, let’s talk about it!
A brief note on notation: When listing a composition, I think we should list the points value first, and the quantity second. There’s precedence in the BGG article I linked above. eg (3x2, 2x5, 1x4) denotes two 3-point agendas, five 2-pointers, and four 1-pointers.
I’m happy to start the discussion: Obviously, the composition is based on your strategy. I typically build Glacier style HB decks, so I want to have time to get a decently taxing scoring remote up. I find my decks typically have one of two Agenda compositions: 7 (3x6, 2x1) or 9 (3x3, 2x6), or (rarely) 10 (3x2, 2x8). I’m not a great deck builder, nor do I have access to a competitive meta, so I feel these are pretty untested, I just feel that fewer Agendas is better for my Glacier.
For Fast Advance (out of NBN for argument sake) I might try for (2x8 1x4), and for a Death By A Thousand Cuts style Jinteki out of PE I am looking more for (2x5, 10x1)
