After some tests with the new Weyland cards I got disappointed with the new ID’s and decided to revisit a old and almost forgotten archetype, Accelerated Diagnostics / Power Shutdown combo. While probably not the best deck around it was surprisingly effective when I took it to a recent Store Championship where it managed a 5-2 record, unfortunatly losing the finals after a epic game stalling on 6 agenda-points and a runner with no cards in hand or deck.
So, on to the decklist:
GRNDL Restoring Order
GRNDL: Power Unleashed (Fear and Loathing)
1x Government Takeover (Order and Chaos)
1x Hades Fragment (Up and Over)
2x Hostile Takeover (Core Set)
3x Project Atlas (What Lies Ahead)
1x Utopia Fragment (The Source)
3x Jackson Howard (Opening Moves) •••
2x Crisium Grid (First Contact)
3x Accelerated Diagnostics (Mala Tempora) •••
3x Hedge Fund (Core Set)
2x Housekeeping (Order and Chaos)
3x Power Shutdown (Mala Tempora)
3x Punitive Counterstrike (True Colors)
3x Restructure (Second Thoughts)
2x Scorched Earth (Core Set)
1x SEA Source (Core Set) ••
2x Successful Demonstration (Creation and Control) ••
2x Changeling (Up and Over)
3x Hive (Double Time)
Code Gate (4)
2x Checkpoint (Order and Chaos)
2x Enigma (Core Set)
2x Errand Boy (The Source)
1x Taurus i[/i]
2x Chimera (Cyber Exodus)
10 influence spent (max 10)
20 agenda points (between 20 and 21)
49 cards (min 45)
Cards up to Order and Chaos

There as some choices in the deck that was mediocre and likely to be cut for the next time I revisit the deck but in general it performed pretty good. Of my 5 wins two where flatlines and the rest where agenda wins.
Housekeeping is a beast in this deck, if you get one early it slows down the runner so much.
Also the deck is not for those that like to play safe, often skipping ICE on RnD and HQ early to force through a early 3-pointer or Atlas with counter.
Also don’t rez ICE unless you really have to, with low sustained economy you need to hold a bank threatening the various flatline options.
