I recently stumbled upon the awesome discovery, that Muertos Gang Member must be awesome in Apex, because you troll the Corp, and after Apocalypse Muertos don’t have a drawback but fuel your endless hunger. However. That is not a Virtual Resource. Meh.
So I was telling that anecdote to a good friend, and at the same time we realized that while not in Apex, that trolling might very very well work in Geist. The drawback of Apocalypse, mainly that your Boardstate gets killed, does not really apply to Geist because he will trash all the things (or at least most of them before firing Apocalypse. Also, Crims are the best at getting in (Inside Job etc.) and Muertos is infaction. A plan was born.
Here is the decklist:
Armand “Geist” Walker: Tech Lord
3x Account Siphon
2x Apocalypse ••••• •
3x Dirty Laundry
3x Fisk Investment Seminar
2x Inside Job
3x Sure Gamble
3x Clone Chip ••••• •
3x Muertos Gang Member
3x Same Old Thing
1x Medium •••
15 influence spent (max 15)
45 cards (min 45)
Cards up to Data and Destiny
Deck built on http://netrunnerdb.com.
The game plan is rather simple. Run early, run often. Punish the Corp for rezzing ICE with Muertos Gang Members and Crescentus. Overmind + Siphon is great. Wait until you draw Apocalypse.
APOCALYPSE! Before you play it, trash Muertos and all the other things you are legally allowed to trash, then Apocalypse. With your very liquid Boardstate, you hardly have any drawback from Apocalypse, while the Corp is pretty much fucked. With all your draw you are likely to punish now brutally. Medium. Legwork. Dirty Laundries. Crescentus. Trolling hard. Notable interaction: Fisk Investment Seminar plus Medium. MOAR NEW CARDS you access. You play two Apocalypse, so rinse and repeat.
