There have been endless conversations, arguments, rants and outcries about Faust - even the mightiest among us have succumbed to declaring the card an enemy of the game and taken to Slack to talk about Farmville or other games, so dead is Netrunner.
But wait. It Faust really the universal issue here, are there not card to stop him? Yes there are! Some bright sparks who’ve risen above the roiling mass of bile and hatred have noted that this card in isolation is not so bad - it’s the addition of D4v1d and Parasite - the unholy triumvirate that rule all, no one piece a master without the other two.
I posit brothers and sisters, that D4v1d is the problem. Without it, how would Dumblefork decks fare against the mighty combo of Wraparound + Tollbooth (or Archangel, add in a Little Engine if you want)? Would Weyland not actually be Not Bad™ if Wormhole actually did something occasionally? What id Blue Sun could get an oversighted Curtain Wall back to hand for once? Could Grim be worth playing once more?
Let’s face it fellow executives, D4v1d is the problem here, not Faust. How many Goliath’s must fall before we do something about it? Will no one think of the giants?
