Good day everyone!
This is my first post ever on this forum, and probably my first post ever dedicated to Netrunner. With the recent stall in Conquest release (or approaching stall I guess), I wanted to start investing in another LCG. I got my hand on a nice starter for a nice price. I have 1 core, the 2 first cycle and the 2 first expansion.
I intend to build decks slowly using the card I have in my possession, while slowly expanding my collection. I want to possess all the release cards at one point, much like I did for conquest.
My question: How does one approach deckbuilding in a game already this developed? I look at Decklist online, I see sooo many different things. I look at tournament on Youtube, and they all run the same, but change from year to year. So here I am, with a passion for deckbuilding and card game, lost in a massive card pool, and I don’t know where to start.
It seems like some cards literally just trump other (or people comments make it seem that way). Like, if I use a Corroder instead of the brand new Icebreaker that just got release, is that really gonna impact my game? If I use this X ICE because I needed an extra sentry, but I don’t pick the best ‘in-meta’ sentry, am I doing it wrong and dooming myself to stay casual until I catch up with all the cards?
tldr; I am a anxious noob, I spent some money, and don’t want to regret it. Will I be able to enjoy the game, the community and tournaments if I don’t know the whole cardpool right away?
Thank you! Btw, this forum looks super nice
