Not much discussion on this new ID either here or on NRDB. When I initially saw it spoiled I thought it was probably the worst of three new Identies in the new Deluxe box but anything yellow can be made an auto tier 2 because Astroscript Pilot Project is the best agenda in the game.
The identity itself is interesting in that it essentially takes on the ability of the current. For example, with Predictive Algorithm the ID ability essentially becomes the runner must pay 2 credits to steal an agenda.
So what is the optimal build? Fast advance, Glacier or kill? How many currents is best? Most decks I’ve seen run only 3 which may or may not be correct. With only 3, there will be games where the currents are buried deep in R&D. I think 5 or 6 is probably the right number. Also what currents are best? For me, I like the 0 cost currents as they aren’t a tempo hit to replay if the runner scores an agenda so Targeted Marketing and Predictive Algorithm are the ones I roll with.
If anyone has experience playing, or playing against this ID, I’d love to hear your thoughts on its current place in the meta game.
