That’s an interesting article. Very thorough!
One card I’m sad is leaving that you weren’t too sure was very important is ‘Clone Retirement’. I have been playing a fast advance kind of version of my PU deck for a while. I always had a ‘Biotic Labour’ influence splash to score ‘Philotic Entanglement’ for the kill, but with the release of ‘Shipment from Tennin’ it could become a pretty legitimate fast advance deck altogether. My agendas were 3 x ‘House of Knives’, 3 x ‘Chronos Project’, 3 x ‘Clone Retirement’, 3 x ‘Braintrust’, 1 x Philotic Entanglement’, 1 x ‘Global Food Initiative’ (the last one never got scored!).
In that kind of setup the copies of ‘Clone Retirement’ were crucial for being able to save FA tools for other things, turning off currents, removing agendas quickly that the Runner couldn’t score and to rush points quickly yourself to force risky runs (perfect for Jinteki). Without ‘Clone Retirement’ I think that deck is going to get critically slower and won’t be as easy to play. The interesting ideas for ‘Shipment from Tennin’ will probably be more directed towards “HB-style” two-pointer fast advance decks only I think. Going for spiky one-pointers and Philotic as your fast advance agenda suite will maybe have to fall back on shell games a bit more.
