Deck built on NetrunnerDB.
It’s in a place where it at least isn’t Completely Terrible.
I can be talked out of the Ronin, it’s there for the random runner who likes to Draw on one turn and Play on another. What’s that? Only two cards in hand? Welcome to Flatline, population You.
Melange is the best and worst card in the deck. It lets me generate ridiculous amounts of money, forever, while I wait for Agendas to come out of R&D. It gives me something to do with the Sandburg or Scoring server while they’re empty. It also allows Runners to dig R&D a lot easier.
Subliminal Messaging feels dirty. In conjunction with Melange, I make 8 a turn unless you run my evil, evil ICE.
ICE composition: Everything ends the run. Except Swordsman. He’s there because Keyhole-Eater MaxX is a thing. Most of the ICE also punish facechecks. The exceptions are Himitsu, which is just good early ETR that Sandburg pumps later in the game, and Lotus Field, which is my answer to Null or other Anarch shenanigans. I’ve been considering WoT instead of Himitsu…
Pretty standard otherwise, the kind of deck you could make in your sleep if someone said ‘Operation Economy Sandburg Palana’. One extra Restructure, and I’ve settled on two Batty. He just hurts so much if I can fire him. That said, there’s awkwardness with BattyGrail where I can only use him during approach on Lancelot Grail ICE, but usually I stack Grail/Rototurrets on the same server so it doesn’t matter too much.
I tried out Clones Aren’t Dudes and dropped it because the Nisei-Nisei-TFP score is still the ideal. It only helps make a 4/2 into a 5/3, which the deck generally doesn’t particularly need. Also tried Komainu and dropped it because I want to End The Run on all my ICE. I’m vaguely looking for a way to fit Snare, Edge of World, or Junebugs into the deck and do Trap things… Otherwise I feel the deck is strong.
