I would like to understand better how to play NEH Astrobiotics. A lot of people say stuff like:
“Every idiot can win with Astrobiotics. Boring. It is so easy to play it on autopilot.”
Now, let us assume that while I might snatch some victories with it I am far from really getting it. What is easy to understand for me is that I would like to get the Astrotrain. But that’s about it.
There are so many things, I am not certain about. For example:
In general: Do I wait for an Astroscript in order to start scoring or is it ok to start with scoring other agendas? (Someone told me that when playing RP I should wait for the Nisei – maybe regarding NEH Astrobiotics I should wait for the Astroscript?)
What is better: installing a PAD campaign this turn without triggering my ID ability or waiting for the install till next turn because then my ability triggers? (More general point: how important is it to maximize the triggering if my ID ability?)
Do I try to make a scoring remote or do I want to fast advance everything?
How do I take into account clot?
More general: What are the pillars of the game plan?
Questions like these bother me. I would be truly thankful if you can share your thoughts on the overall strategy for playing NEH Astrobiotics. It might be not that difficult, as a lot of people suggest (then I can learn it pretty fast – splendid). I invite you to talk about your strategy when playing this kind of deck.
Since it might be sensible to have a specific deck list to start with, I am referring to bblum’s regional winning deck list. That is the list I will use as a starting point for learning how to play NEH.
P.S. I might have missed the topic where my question has been already discussed. Then I am happy if you can direct to that place.
