In testing several variations on Criminal decks (mainly Andromeda, some Leela) since Blue Sun has become relatively prevalent both on OCTGN and in my local NYC meta, I’m wondering are we being forced to re-include, or at least increase the slots dedicated, to some of the older staple cards such as Sneakdoor, Inside Job, and Shutdown?
The issue to me is that there is no good way to quickly break a S10 Curtain Wall that is OAI early game, and getting passed it even to setup a Shutdown later s double-digit credits for a Corroder. Shutting down the Ice, either before the Corp can get the money for it on their next turn, or simply forcing the derez and hard-rez to offset the cost later on, seem like the only real response for Criminals at the moment.
Otherwise, threatening HQ by alternative entry, i.e. Sneakdoor, seem like the only other avenue we have. Has anyone else noticed the Blue Sun match in particular, regardless of Scorch or Glacier, to be rather challenging for “standard fare” Criminal decks?
