I’ve played around with some Gagarin builds running 2x Architect, 2x Data Raven, 3x Dedicated Response, and 2x Ash. (+3 Jackson). It typically runs 2x Patch as well for Architect. I find myself really wanting a third Architect but going down to 1 Data Raven seems to defeat the purpose of 3x DRT.
It’s a quite combo-y deck but I feel like theres something there. When it got up and running, it was singing. Patched Architect is a nightmare to deal with, and with a bunch of decent asset econ to install and Ash to recur Architect was never bad. Maybe dropping the kill option and going more glaciery. I don’t know.
Gagarin is the best for pulling off a ‘toolbox’ build of 2x Boot Camp, 1x Student Loans, and 1x Corporate Town.
Just shooting ideas off here. I find myself to be very poor in Gagarin unless I run heavy Root play.
There’s a Weyland ICE suite I’ve been toying with… as 3x FIre Wall, 3x Ice Wall, 3x Builder, and 2x Shadow/Searchlight/Nebula (take your pick). I love the idea of Builder, but it had a serious problem - when I relied on it, the Runner saw this and broke it. When I didn’t rely on it, well, they gave me 15 counters on my Asteroid Belt. Woop-dee-doo. Ice Wall and Fire Wall don’t need discount advancements to function, bluff players trying to focus on breaking builder, and can get quite scary with a couple advancements.
I’d toss in a decklist but I just now got some free time to test some new decks. Our local regionals is the very last (plano TX) so I’ll put in some games before I throw a useless list out. Unrelated, I’m pretty salty there’s no ANRPC for the true south. It’s in the works of being fixed now.
