Played a bit last night, but yea that Special Order is pretty necessary. Earthrise at 2 wasn’t enough, and it doesn’t last long enough for all the pieces to come together. Duggars is a hard pull because of the discard at the end. I am thinking of doing Wyldside Chopbot instead. This is a nonbo with Day job, so might change that and IHW for it. Dirty Laundry might be a good replacement. Mimic was good for the one Architect he rezzed, but I was slow playing because he got Wisps on his HQ/R&D and a server, so I was holding onto Special Orders to get breakers back. I’m thinking dropping a cloak for the third Ghost Runner and using the spare inf for another SO. Memory is tight enough that I’m not getting that third cloak in anyway, and worse if I want a Mimic or Yog to take care of small Ice that won’t die. I also made a dumb play putting a parasite on an Ice wall he got up to 8 str, which wasn’t too bad with BlackCat and a Sucker token was able to handle.
I guess the argument here is Cloak credits can come back which covers economy in most parts, but the initial setup cost is the hard part.
Then on second thought, If I have Wyldside and Chopbot, it also sort of redundant going with Vigil. Vigil was great that game, firing a good 6-7 times I think, but always drew into something useful. If I don’t run Vigil because I have Wyldside out, that could go as a Spinal Modem, as reoccuring credits will pay off with all these cheap runs. But that drawback might hurt other matchups and at 4 cost the money might not be there.
