(I’m pretty happy with the Chaos Theory deck, but not too sure how I feel about Ashless HB)

But my next thought was, trace notwithstanding, maybe revised core NBN would be a good introduction? It plays a lot more like regular Netrunner than porous-ice-and-Astrotrain Core 1.0 NBN with all its attendant frustrations and confusion, and also lacks the various NPEs of program destruction and flatlining. You’d definitely want to explain the consequences of tagging, but even those are much easier for a runner to manage than the various things that other corps can do to them.
