I pretty much agree. But, I’m a favorite of the 1x atman and then just doing the normal crim thing. I compensate with a 1x dyson for those games where atman takes up too much space, but the fact is that atman usually saves you a bunch of money at 4/5 str, so who cares.
I haven’t been a huge Andy player, but this influence package has done me well in recent testing:
2x Notoriety (for those games where you get to 5/6 points and just need a closer)
2x R&D Interface
– If you suspect destroyers, you have to be careful of the virus suite and keep a faerie out, but otherwise it seems to run just as easily as the older andy decks. I gave up on Siphon and went crescentus instead, which helps. If the point is to deny credits, ice hate is usually more reliable at this point than an uninterrupted HQ access given nisei, CVS, Crisium, and friends. And then you’re not worried about tags either.
Basically, I don’t see a reason to run peacock. It’s too easy to play criminal without it. Turing is probably your biggest problem right now, not really lotus field.
