Basically you throw out a vamp or an account siphon to throw the corp off balance to punch a remote or a central with impunity. Typically, you will spend at least 1 click gaining cash or drawing...
Its rough, but I have had fun with it. I especially have had fun bucking a few meta powerhouses (datasuckers, parasites) but I had to at least keep a few (Siphon and Femme). Not sold entirely on my Retrieval Runs, my Femmes, my mem chips and my plascretes.
Here are my thoughts, and thanks for the feedback Alex!
I agree. I think with a few new cards Reina will be a serious top tier runner, regardless of if you go Caissa or not.
I have been running her as a somewhat tag me style runner, although I may end up cutting four influence for a second account syphon so that I can be more true to that archetype. As is, I usually have no need for my plascretes... or I guess less need for plascretes aside from using them as a meta precaution (I usually only have 1 or 2 tags on me at a time). I like Opus in this deck, specifically because of Vamp. Vamp and Opus allow you to run tag me and dictate your economy. I know Opus is not the meta powerhouse that Pro Contacts is... but I like it so far. I could try to sub it in next time though...
Opus allows me extreme flexibility with Vamp and ensures I have a late game if I cannot land a siphon or vamp lock. Also, Rook + Reina or Reina + Xanadu is enough to ensure that the Corp will not always be rezing much for at least a turn. Only anarch program I might sub in is Imp as spending 5 to trash San Sans really bite. Rush decks right now trash this deck so I might need to find the space. Parasite doesn't suit this deck as much. Medium is great, and only having one virus program (right now) makes virus purges a bit less painful for me and more of a waste for the Corp.
3..I go back and forth. Rook and Knight are fantastic, and for its cost Bishop is alright but maybe the weakest of the bunch. I like it more than Datasuckers for this deck as I typically will not run more than two times a turn, at most. Also because of the fact I run less, Desperado is a little less appealing. Heck, Spinal Modem is probably a slightly better include. The main reason I stuck with Deep Red was primarily for the +3 Caissa Memory and because I am Virus light.
4+5 Xanadu is good. Especially good with Reina. I think part of this combo really is kicked up a notch by Vamp and/or Siphon. If you can keep the corp down a few pegs, they cannot res ice. If they can res anything, it will cost them more than they are used to... or more than they bargained for.
