One of my main lines of retort when people talk about Kate or Val DLR being super-strong right now, is that either of them you can tech against, but trying to build your Corp to perform well is what makes the other seem stronger than it is. Add in Noise as the unofficial number three runner (along with other good stuff anarch deck, especially with Faust) and rush decks seem a dangerous gamble as your only win condition.
Is there a fourth option out there? As Corps align to defend against the above decks, what’s the next avenue of attack for Runners? Is there a chance for Criminal to sneak back in?
While we’re here – what’s the best Corp defence against the Kate / Val double header? Is there a common approach strong against both?
