Deuce wild would be an error, I think. Running for 3c max - 1 card, 3 times, is not enough vs Desperado : I would never remove it, it is invaluable to horizontal decks (with Mercur, all trash costs are -2).
Kate would use it, as she could use extra draw.
The change I made:
o -1x SMC, +1 Test run (Test run can be PPVP for more effect than a post Levy SMC).
o -1x Trade-In, +1 Mercur (Mercur was MVP in most games, I don’t care finding Desperado or CC a little later).
This can win T9-T15, before Levy, or after, since lategame it is even stronger.
Without a Parasite, it have semibad match-ups vs NEXT ice though (both lists have dependences on the rush vs snowball balance your piloting gives to those lists).
Not sure about performances vs NBN FA, I played one and botch the game. Those Spaceship Weyland FA that people play is W~5 - L~2 atm.
Still unsure about Palana Rush. I’m around 50%/50% w/r vs those lists.
Non-NEXT glaciers happen to loose recurrently if the Runner have a plan. The runner will lose if he doesn’t know how to do (it is more a matter of experience here than lack of card / money).
Neo-tag & bag Weylands are gameloss due to noob piloting (I did not play since a few monthes). I’m quite terribad as a pilot vs those anyway.
I SOT at least twice on Quality Time to find “Da Event” (Legwork / Maker) that makes a gamewin, I’m super proud of finding this (6 cards in the deck and still need your legwork ? Clic 1 DO IT - and draw through Mercur if it fails). The list can evade many thing the corp throw at your face through the pilot’s creativity.
You have to keep track of your events but if you +/- know what is in the stack, the list is super strong.
Another strong synergy is PPVP / Mercur : Mercur creds transforms Sure Gamble into 1 clic Lucky Find.
In my opinion, Idoru could bring @Calimsha back to the game
