Great job once again OD!
In hindsight, I probably should have taken a mulligan this game. IIRC I had vitruvius, biotic labor, enigma, pop up and ichi. With some decent early draws I could get into a strong position and I didn’t want to risk mulligan into more agendas or something.
This was my first time against Kit so I was unsure on what to expect. I thought that he would be more aggressive in pushing out a decoder and then run, so I was hoping the Ichi behind pop up could get a trash off. I think I drew the Gila on my first turn, followed by another Ichi on the next turn. Since I was low on stopping power with only an Enigma on HQ I didn’t want to risk the 2AP Vitruvius over Gila, if this had been game 1 I would have gone for Gila for sure.
Out of the eight (I think?) ICE I drew I only got 1 Eli, which came too late. Stopping a Kit with only code gates and Ichis and no econ was pretty hard. Playing the Sansan naked would definitely have been the right move to slow him down. Scoring the ABT was a huge mistake. I had just enough money to rezz all the R&D ICE and should just have put down the Sansan and take 2c. But still, without econ draws I wouldn’t have enough credits to push trough the ABT and rezz R&D ICE. So if he had ignored the Sansan, knowing what card it was, he could have prepared for that big R&D run anyway, letting me score the ABT, alternatively run HQ guessing I had an agenda there since I played out the Sansan. In the end though, you are completely right.
Anyway, great job predicting my decks and explaining your thought process. Here are my decklists for reference:
Slin: I too made the mistake thinking that Inside job worked with Kit when I thought about making a deck with her
Anyway, well played, nice to see a cool Kit deck win and good luck in worlds!
