Simple question. I strongly prefer asset econ in deck building, it just always seems more consistent. That said, I don’t just want to be playing fun Netrunner forever. I’d like to get competitive someday. I ask this question, because lately, all of my deck testing goes one of two ways. 1. I am playing a careless or inexperienced runner and they don’t trash anything. The game is basically over before it starts. As soon as they leave a naked Sundew on the table I give up hope on this being a close game and play it out just to be polite. 2. I’m playing an experienced runner who will facecheck an iced Sundew and then keep running it and taking damage just to deny my econ. They methodically dismantle all my assets until this game also isn’t fun, but basically because the opponent is just playing good Netrunner.
Even with CTM I’ve found good runners can deny asset econ in most games. I’m just wondering, in the current meta, what is a corp to do?
