Yeah, I really love Reina’s ability, and don’t forget about her 1 link. I’m not a huge Contacts fan, but I’m sure they’ll make it into most decks. So maybe x3 Contacts, Armitage, Kati, Sure Gamble would be enough econ.
I think Reina’s advantage is in slowing down the corp game. This means you can rig out faster relative to the corp board than most other runners, particularly with some help from Parasites, Rooks, ES and FAOs. Also, running a high link rig with Contacts makes Spinal Modem useful, something I’m looking forward to. Compromised Employee would probably be a good splash. Vamp’s definitely an autoinclude. I’m tempted to say Morningstar, Femme and Retrieval would be fun and bad, but whatever, I’ll play it
Edit: Didn’t mean to hijack your thread, just got carried away dreaming of the Red Queen, haha. Yeah, I think we’ll need to see more powerful Caissa cards before we get to live the dream. On a side note, here’s a review from the Reina Roja hotel in Playa del Carmen:
The black walls in the rooms make it impossible to see much, the decor
is in terrible taste, the red lightbulbs did not allow us to actually
see if we had a sunburn! The loud techno music from the lobby did
nothing towards a restful evening or night, the main reason to go to a
hotel, and the porn on the tv at breakfast was ludicrous, not to
mention offensive. They asked for payment in advance, and had we not
been blessed with a sense of humour, this would have been a terrible
vacation. We spent as little time as possible in the hotel.
Oh Reina, breakfast porn? You crazy lady.
