Fellow professors, our time has come.
We have waited so long for this day. We have been so patient. And now finally, our favorite academic is ready to shine. Now, finally, it’s time for the world to see how great the ol’ academic truly is.
…or at least it will be, once rebirth comes out
All joking aside though, things are really looking up for the good old Prof, so I thought I’d share my deck with you all, as well as talk about how rebirth will affect the Professor.

(Stimhack to be replaced by Rebirth when it comes out)
I’ll explain a few of the choices here.
This is basically a modified big rig deck, so Opus is the main economy around here. Get it out early, on a leprechaun or otherwise, and you’ll be fine. However, workshop is the main card you need to see in your opening hand, or you’re gonna have to dig hard for it. It just makes everything so much cheaper.
Leprechaun might be a bit of a tough sell but trust me, these Irish gentlemen will make your memory problems so much easier. Yeah, program destruction, but often you’ll only have Opus and SMC on them, so it’s basically the same as if the opus was just trashed. They also are the only things making sneakdoor possible, which should be commended.
Dinosaurs is a niche console, but the cost makes it the perfect workshop project, and you don’t need the MU with leprechauns anyway. Since you have 3x scavenge, things are going to be popping in and out of your rig a lot, and it isn’t too hard to switch whatever you need onto the dino when you need it to be there.
Basically, this deck revolves around being flexible. Hit R&D a few times, then scavenge the medium for a sneakdoor when more substantial ice comes down. Swap again if you need to hit a remote.
So yeah, what do you think? Is professor the new Kate? (Probably not, but we can dream, right?)
