Is adding a Quality Time to a deck worth going to 46 cards?
I’m inclined to say yes by the following logic. Diesel reduces the # of clicks to draw the entire deck by 2. Quality time reduces it by 1, assuming you had to click once for each credit to play QT. Assuming that adding a QT in slot 46 has a neutral effect on deck size, although could be detrimental to tempo when drawn.
The deck I’m specifically working on runs two Prepaid voice pads, and of course a fair amount of econ cards. QT should therefore reduce the # of clicks by 2-3 having the net effect of reducing effective deck size.
Of course it would be ideal to run at 45 cards with 3 QT and 3 Diesel but given that the only expendable cards are things like a 3rd copy of Kati or 2nd/3rd copies of cards that are live in multiples (Dirty Laundry, Plascrete, NACH, Sure Gamble) it seems reasonable to run at 46 rather than cut a QT.
So, thoughts? Am I on the right track logically, or am I missing something glaringly obvious?
