With Regionals season in full swing, there are lots of shiny plastic Gagarin Deep Space IDs going around. Why leave them in the binder when they’re so pretty?
We have a good Kim thread already, so in this topic let’s discuss: how to make the best Gagarin deck that probably still sucks, but isn’t strictly worse than swapping the ID out for Blue Sun or Titan.
I like to start with the win condition and go from there. Possibilities as I see them are:
Vegan Glacier style - get rich, score behind Ash and/or other protection upgrades. Instead of Blue Sun’s infinite Adonis and Oversights you do something something asset economy - Breaker Bay Grid + The Root? Eliza’s Toybox? Bootcamp for 1x Sundew? Corporate Town to blow up resource economy?
Combo Wombo Scorch - Tire them out checking econ assets and DBS, then stick a Posted Bounty or Jackson or Tech Startup (which searches Jackson) and Scorch/Punitive them tracelessly with Accelerated Diagnostics combo.
Hard Lock - Power Shutdown / Housekeeping / AggSec / Destroyers to trash their nice things, plus Blacklist/Chronos to deny the recursion and lock them out. Maybe IT Department.
Supermodernism style - Quinn’s deck pushes agendas under threat of classic SEA+Scorch+Scorch. Not convincing to me in post-IHW meta but has had some success.
Anyone have testing experience to share, or another feasible win condition?
