I may be calling it early but i think Noise is going to be the deck to beat before long, the noise + aesops shell has received some all craziness boost recently, and now with Faust to boot. Anarch in general seems to be loving Faust.
So i tried to adjust my normie RP list to answer the new runner cards a bit better. It’s meant to be played fast - overdraw and rush as quickly as possible. Unlike rush decks the econ is still asset based, but i think this is correct in RP even when your rushing. Spam out enough assets and the click and credit tax for clearing them all is good for the corp, against good players it may not pry open an entire scoring window but it will slow them down so you can press an advantage, or at least that’s been my experience so far. Been winning with the list as is, although iv not yet set it against PPVP kate, where i think it will struggle.
Lots of cheap ICE with odd ways of taxation, troll iv found to be amazingly taxing surprisingly enough, slap a pup in front of it or an eli behind it, although i admit the influence requirement hurts. Lots of cheap low strength ICE also means parasite food - which is good, as eventually they have to run out of clone chips.
Turing could and probably should be a tollbooth + maybe a green level clearance or anonymous tip, something for extra draw anyway.
Batty would be nice, but the deck slots are tight. I may try replacing caprice with batty but sometimes taxing the run through an eli, a psi game and the credit to trash caprice is actually worth it.
Anyway, the list is probably trash compared to standard RP, but its been a nice thought experiment trying something slightly different with the RP competitive shell. Thoughts and criticisms welcome as always.
