I’ve been messing around with a Los deck this last week, and so far it’s been doing fairly well. Getting paid for people rezzing ICE feels pretty sick, and it makes me think that maybe I should play Faerie so I can facecheck with a little more impunity vs Jinteki, but deck slots are already kinda fullish at the embarrassing 46 cards. Here’s the list; I’ll discuss it more afterwords.
Shut it Down, Los
Los: Data Hijacker (Station One)
12 influence spent (max 15-3★=12, available 0)
46 cards (min 45)
Cards up to Station One
I might be going too deep with 3x Crescentus and 2x Emergency Shutdown, but they’re both very useful. Shutdown is good for letting them have their sense of security, and then shutting down their key ICE after a siphon or something. Crecentus is great because it’s an active threat, making the corp question whether they really want to spend 5c on that Ichi 1.0 only to pay you 2 credits, knowing that you’ll just shut it down again.
I went for Medium + Turning Wheel over double RDIs, because being able to shut down key R&D ICE means I have the chance to make those key, multiple runs per turn that Medium likes. Originally I had all 3 Dirty Laundries, but I figured with all the shutting down I can do, I should at least try out a High-Stakes Job, since I can almost always control what happens with it. So far it’s been great, and is hilarious with a Crecentus out, since they’re very tempted to not even bother re-rezzing the unrezzed ICE.
It’s a fun deck, but probably not perfect (46 cards lol). Thoughts?
