@bewnt made a intro-level video on new agenda compositions at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NEtRlC2uinQ considering the release of Global Food Initiative and Vanity Project.
I want to get people’s thoughts on the use of the new compositions. I submit the following agenda composition:
- 2x Vanity Project
6/4 Agenda, 1 influence
- 3x Global Food Initiative (GFI)
5/3 Neutral Agenda, 1 influence: Global Food Initiative is worth 1 fewer agenda point while in the runner's score area.
- 1x generic 5/3 agenda
- 6 agendas yields fewer than one agenda every 8 cards. This is epic levels of agenda density.
- Corp has to score two (1x VP + 1x GFI)
- 80% chance that the runner has to score three (exceptions being if they score any two of GFI, GFI, or the generic 5/3).
- 5/3s are hard to score, let alone a 6/4.
- 5 influence on agendas.
One possible plan to score out that helps with the first downside:
- Score a 5/3 the hard way (with Ash/Caprice/etc…) IAA, then AAA -> score.
- Score the 6/4 using fast advance tricks. IAA, then Biotic/Sansan AAAA -> score
The benefit of this plan is that no agenda is on the board for more than a single runner turn. This is obviously only applicable to glacier-style decks, and is, I believe, most useful in HB (due to the native access to Biotic, Ash, and taxing ice).
I want to open this up to general discussion about the agenda compositions that the new agendas make possible.
- What is the best way to use these agendas?
- Does the plan above hold water (I know it will be somewhat difficult to discuss this without a deck list)?
- What corps and/or deck styles will they find a home in?
