Recently a certain HB deck has been on a tear.
The first example I know of is from Warsaw Regionals.

I brought a very similar list to both Portland and Tacoma regionals. So did many others, it seems.
The only modification for me was pulling Turing for Viktor 2.0 (I’ve also seen IQ in the same slot). Seems like reasonable meta slot fluctuation.
@BenConn suggested dropping the Blacklist in favor of a Bootcamp, which I think is a good idea. Certainly there have been games where I’ve flooded out with a Blacklist in hand, wishing to draw Jackson. It can also rez NEXT ice, which has it’s own benefits.
At Tacoma I went 3-2 with the deck, and it seems super solid. Some notes:
Not as weak to Whizzard as it looks on paper. However, this relies upon abusing the lack of tutors, as a long game of Parasite spam is not good for you.
This is a pure glacier deck. Score responsibly.
Jackson is most frequently used as Rework ++. Recursion of Caprices is a important secondary function, as is ABT insurance.
Eden Fragment is nuts. Hades is alright.
“It’s not a good remote until you have more upgrades then ice!” - I said this facetiously, but it bears some truth.
