I mean its 90% standard haarp butcher that did well in the invitational but then no ice or astroscripts.


Not good, but it’s very fun to ruin Faust players with Chum -> Swordsman.

Click Bait


Returning to deckbuilding after some time away, I outdid myself with the badness of this deck. Not only is the kill plan an unlikely fantasy, and the ice suite totally unprepared for something as simple as SMC, but even the description is terrible with run on sentences like this one.


You are usually on The Brewery, allowing you to kill a runner with Biotic Labor + Punitive Counterstrike if they steal a Vanity Project. Though the runner ought to be careful in general around this deck with the threats of Neural EMP and Project Junebug alongside the aforementioned combo pieces, which is what you want so that you can just Fast Track out your agendas and score them behind some binary ice or fast advance them with Biotic Labor.

Eyes are bleeding there.


I’ve been playing a deck a lot like this. Turntable makes it significantly worse than your average weak deck, it makes it actively one of the worst possible strategies in netrunner right now. And there is a lot of turntable around.


I tried to make a deck where you play everything face up and win through the magical power of money. It didn’t work.
(Spiderweb should probably be woodcutter for maximum synergy, though the dedications are mainly there for the 5 point combo.)

Basically, the goal of this deck is to get every piece of NEXT ICE installed and rezzed, and use museums to slow the game down or recover from ICE destruction. The synergy between the ID, Museum and EBC enables some pretty hilarious combos: the turn after a runner parasited a NEXT Silver, I used Museum to shuffle it back into my deck, EBC to rez a NEXT Silver that was already installed, and my ID to add the trashed copy back to HQ.

The reason I’m posting the deck here is because it is simply too slow to play. Searching and shuffling R&D every turn had me wishing for an automated card shuffler. Of the 10 or so tournament matches I’ve played, half have gone to time.

I always get excited when I see you’ve posted a new deck. I too am a Rush fanatic. This is a very reasonable NEXT list. Has Swordsman been worthwhile? One thing I find playing Rush is that it’s tough to beat Blackmail spam. I tend to include AggSecs for this reason. Perhaps it hasn’t been an issue for you.


In decks that lean so heavily on SfSS, I also occasionally like a singleton Archived Memories or Rec Order to get back those key cards. Especially useful since you’re not on Jackson :wink: It can also help to get back NEXT pieces from all that fun ICE destruction going on. Maybe -1 Subliminal to fit it in, since I love Lateral and I think Sublim is the weaker card overall.

Overall, it seems like a very reasonable list, meta considering.

Swordman is your only hope against Faust. It can also be good vs Atman and Eater. 1-2 AggSec would be reasonable here. Blackmail is always an issue - if you’re playing against Val then you should fire every ABT (and if you score an Efficiency Committee, save your shipments for ABT). Although the deck is weak enough that you should probably be firing every ABT anyway (except maybe against Leela).

I know there are 3 Efficiency Committee and 3 Sfss, but the deck really lives or dies on scoring agendas in the remote. I think it’s pretty rare that an AM on Sfss would swing the game in your favor. That said I think dropping a Sublim for an AM would be fine, especially given the extra ABT safety.


Maybe Gravedigger is good?
