So I probably just played the best match of my life. Let me set the stage:
Me - ETF. I have a scored project vitruvius with 1 counter (important), a rezzed jeeves, suffrage, sponsorship, and an unrezzed assembly lines (also important). I have some ice out, but nothing rezzed.
Opponent - Hayley, degenerate dyper deck with equivocation and keyhole, about ready to bring the hurt. Important to note that they don’t have any clone chips out, but do have enough false echos for it not to matter.
I have just scored my second agenda, an ABT, hitting an enigma, suffrage, and sponsorship. Praise be to jackson! I plop that engima over r&d and am about ready to call it a day. I already have a sponsorship out so install the suffrage. I hit jeeves to install a facedown jackson behind a vanilla.
My opponent pops all 3 hyper drivers and ddos and kills jackson, and then proceeds to Escher away my enigma They hit r&d next, burning through their false echos and they mill an ABT. I use my previously unrezzed AAL to install architect from HQ onto R&D, hoping beyond all hope they’ll have to dig for their third clone chip. Alas, it was not meant to be as they install the 3rd clone chip and bring back false echo. Defeat looks certain.
But then a very curious thing happens. My opponent plays interdiction and puts themselves down to 2 credits and proceeds to mill away 10 points worth of agendas 2x ABT, 2x Vitruvius, and … 1 NAPD! they run archives, only for me to snatch victory from the jaws of defeat when I use my Vitruvius token to add one of the Vitruvius back to HQ. They are stunned and only at 6 points. I still have 14 cards in hand I need to deal with though.
2x biotic and a subliminal later, I’m sitting on six clicks. I shipment out 2 pieces of ice over r&d and archives, as well as the vitruvius. 4 advancements later, I have an overscored Vitruvius and a freshly reinstalled AAL which I pop for a Jackson. Lateral growth puts me up a few more credits to rez ice and protect jackson. I end my turn with 5 cards in hand and enough credits to rez some hard ETRs.
My opponent tries to make something out of nothing but can’t, and I use the suffrages to bring back biotic and lateral growth to score the winning NAPD from archives thanks to my vitruvius counter and jeeves.
I love this game.
