even with the experience of almost 10 TCG’s and 1 LCG it is very
difficult to build a netrunner deck. Now I have build 2 decks (one with
Noise here and one with Ken). Dont wonder, i only use cards i have (1
core set and 1 times every expansion). Does this deck have a chance on
tournaments? Any surgestions to improve it? Thanks in Advance!
Noise: Hacker Extraordinaire (Core Set)
3x Demolition Run (Core Set)
2x Dirty Laundry (Creation and Control)
2x Déjà Vu (Core Set)
3x Sure Gamble (Core Set)
3x Surge (Humanity’s Shadow)
2x Vamp (Trace Amount)
2x Cyberfeeder (Core Set)
1x Grimoire (Core Set)
2x Daily Casts (Creation and Control)
2x Data Leak Reversal (Future Proof)
2x Fester (Up and Over)

What am i planing with this deck? My aim is to destroy cons deck very fast. So i start with Noise and a lots of Virus Programs which trigger his ability. With Hemorrhage i want to force the con to draw more cards. Medium and Nerve Agent shall improve the amount of cards i can access when running. With Luck some Agendas or with Demolition Run destroying them all. Parasite and Sneakdoor Beta am trying to get easier through the ice which the con maybe install. If he install more and more ice on central servers it will be easier to run on the separate servers.
To get some money i use dirty laundry, sure gamble and daily casts, which i saw in the most decks. Deja Vu should help to get ‘more’ Virus cards in the deck. Cause if i play them again, Noise’s ability triggers again. Surge ist here to get faster more stacks on my virus programs. If i have a lot of money i can force the con to loose his money with Vamp. I think this will make it more difficult for the con to rez sth. rly expensive. Cyberfeeder should help me to get my runs and installs cheaper. Due to my deck builds on Noise and Viruses i used Grimoire as console. Cons can ‘easily’ deny all my virus markers so Grimoire and Surge won’t be that effective, so i want to make him/her pay for it. This is where Fester comes into play. So the con has to pay 3 clicks and 2 credits. I hope to get him/her to some economy problems with those cards.
Now some tricky cards. I want to combine Data Leak Reversal with Jousha B. and Vamp. Data Leak Reversal is, in my opinion, very useful in a deck, which wants the con running out of cards. the only problem is the tag. in some cases tags, don’t hurt. So i take Jousha B. who lets me choose to get tagged or not. Vamp gives me a tag which i can deny in my own turn, if needed. Do i need to play more with tags if i want to be successful? And how often do cons count on the tag?
At least my Icebreakers. Only 9. Hope that is enough. I took Darwin cause he is a virus. The other viruses didn’t look that good to me. And Darwin is easy to use or to deny Crypsis is a Virus too and an allrounder if i don’t get the right icebreaker. To break the most ice’s i took breach (against barriers, cheap and only for central servers, should fit my purpose), femme fatale (one of my favorite cards; from coloring and rules; should bypass the most evil ice and break sentrys) and at least force of nature (just a code gate destroyer).
Sry, for the first short and ‘rude’ version of my text. So i hope i could show u why i use these cards. If not, feel free to ask.
