Thanks for sharing, I love the flavor of Kit and am always on the lookout for ideas.
Your point about building to beat both FA and Glacier is spot on. Another meta trend I’m seeing is Corps playing as many subroutines as possible regardless of the ICE’s strength, since Datasucker tends to nullify strength anyway - the goal of the ICE is to tax the Runner $1 per subroutine.
Yog is well positioned to go against this as you mentioned and personally I’m not wasting any time on Refractor (too many moving parts) or Gordian (too expensive). IMO if Kit isn’t actively blanking a good chunk of the Corp’s ICE, you might as well just play Kate.
Drawing into multiples of The Personal Touch is inconsistent even with ProCo and makes me want to run Replicator, at which point you might as well run 3 Akamatsu (or 2 Cybersolutions) instead to allow yourself a larger late game rig.
I feel that Indexing is worse than ever, between shuffle effects (Jackson, Foundry, the upcoming Weyland card) and just the difficulty of running twice on R&D past the early game. I much prefer stacking Maker’s Eye with RDI. Since Kit traditionally has no influence for HQ pressure, I find a lot of Kit endgames just come down to whether I can drill deep enough into R&D before they fast advance out.
I understand the reasoning behind ProCo and Kati as they don’t require MU, but the sheer amount of NBN makes getting burned SanSan -> Breaking News -> Trash ProCo or Kati far too likely for my tastes.
Opus is much safer and additionally beats SEA Scorch most of the time without having to run Plascrete. Opus can be cheated out via Stimhack and one of Personal Workshop or SMC, whereas dropping your bank to play ProCo probably opens up a scoring window for Blue Sun. Stimhack is in general a great card for Shaper and at 1 influence you can actually squeeze it in.
Of course the disadvantage is the 2 MU, but now we have Leprechaun and Cybersolutions to help with that and Kit can run longer on just 2 breakers than anyone else.
I’ll try to post some videos of myself playing Kit along these lines on the weekend.
