How to run Modified Notorious Daily Quester?


#1

Hello, I am going to run Modified Notorious Daily Quester from Chilo Regionals 2014 and was wondering if anyone had advice on how to run this deck.

Also Id love to hear any ideas for alternate cards to include, especially anything from the Lunar cycle. My meta doesnt see much need for plascrete, not much scorching going on!

Many thanks for helping a poor noob!

Don’t use Unregistered S&W for starters.

I feel like finding room for Sneakdoor Beta is probably a good idea. It’s solid in Silhouette, especially if you’re playing this variant.

I like Mr. Li and Security Testing in this style of deck, rather than Magnum Opus and QT. Dirty Laundry is also a must-include, to keep from going broke on the turns you try to run everything. Other than that, I like it. It’s weak to glacier, but great against Jinteki. Just watch out for Psychic Field.

IMO, Quest Completed is poor with the dominance of NBN Fast Advance, and Cerebral Imaging on top of that is rough. I also didn’t like relying on Opus with no way to tutor it - it felt like if I didn’t draw it early enough I was dead in the water.

I played a version that trimmed those down to fit Anarch breakers. It’s very satisfying when you know Corp is going to Fast Track an Astro and win next turn, and then you do a single or double Notoriety for the win.

It plays more like an Andy deck, less consistent but with a few nice tricks up its sleeve.

Thanks for the suggestions guys. Changing up magnum for security testings, quality times and or ppvps all seems to fit great in a deck with a lot of runs and a lot of events. Tho nothing beats magnum for endless economy.

Corroder d is great to counter the cost of breach. Mr li would free up the influence for that.

As for vulnerability to fast advance the meta here should be ok for that, plenty of 5/3s floating around!

Plascretes and the s and w will be useless around here I’m sure.

I had a lot of success with 2x Three Steps Ahead. I used it instead of Plascrete and it provided even more cash to fuel the breakers.

I’ve moved away from Quester even though its so fun. I had people planting traps and Quest bait once they saw the breakers. It’s too easy to counter versus a knowledgeable opponent. Even something as harmless/common as Jackson can absorb a QC. The next step for Quester will probably be adding Crypsis or more R&D pressure to be competitive.

Silhouette is insanely good when played with a Standard Crim decklist. Dunks all over PE, safe running, and the ability is almost always useful, so I’ve been playing that.

My thoughts on the deck type are that–you want to focus on making your runs MEANINGFUL and your influence VALUABLE (that is true of all decks, but I think is a miss for this deck atm). I would first think about both your playstyle and the playstyle this deck fits into, and adjust how you think you will play. I think with the original version that ran magnum opus, it was clear that between burst turns, they were setting up and getting back on their feet. Criminal has a few more tools (like security testing) that emboldens a more aggressively running build. You also have the new Three Steps Ahead that could make those power turns sting a bit less. But even if you went slower and more calculated, I would probably use Kati Jones over MO in most cases, to free up some valuable MU and influence. Simiarly, I would rather use criminals draw rather than import for it, even though its a bit worse, diesel is too much influence and QT is too big of a tempo hit unless you’re just hoping to power draw into a Quest Complete or something.

Personally, I think you need strong central pressure for this deck, otherwise its too easy especially for FA to just never leave agendas tabled. You already give up ~half your influence to Quest Complete and Notoriety. to me, you REALLY need to spend what’s left on central access cards. indexing, RDI, maker’s, legwork, Hemorrhage (actually really, really good for this deck, since it both gives HQ pressure and helps you remove FA pieces that might be sitting in hand, that or midseason or flatline cards that your deck is weak to), DLR would be good, you have fall guy in faction and if you just landed a siphon or they fast advanced out an agenda, you could easily get 2-3 turns of milling before they can get it off the table; datasucker is great since you’re slamming into centrals–You can mix and match to your playstyle, but this really is where your influence should be before economy and draw, which criminal has plenty of.

I think the other thing too you have to watch out for is overvaluing notoriety while underestimating quest completed. notoriety is great to trick out 2 points with–BUT its the absolute worst way to get points in terms of money/clicks. That is why that central access is so key, because then notoriety becomes a tool rather than a gimicky win from 5 points (and it begs the question if tricking from 5 points–which is an uncommon score against a lot of strong decks–merits the doppleganger include. You could easily be better off with a couple of all-nighters so you can run desperado). Quest Completed is the card that benefits more from doppleganger (or depending on what multi-access you go with, doppleganger could easily be more valuable than desperado, but certainly not at face value and arguably not in the decklists posted here. and QC is what is going to shine as you place more and more pressure on the corp to install agendas before they want to.
