Speaking of garbage fires, I’ve been messing around with dumping my AD Couriers deck into Skorpios and been having some surprising luck with it the last couple of games, especially in some aspects.

Deck built on NetrunnerDB.
Now that I’ve finally weaned my way off of trying to cram GT into the deck, I’ve been having decent luck just actually using the combo to score 5/3’s or 6/4’s. Open Forum has been doing a surprising amount of work blunting R&D multi-access by just tossing a piece of ICE back on top of my deck. And apparently no one wants to actually go trash it since I’m just filling my own HQ up with cards?
It, admitting, can be a grind as you hope you finally draw the agenda you need. Especially since you can’t actually click a Jackson to draw else you break your Forum protection. Or if you forget to actually fire your ID ability, like I did one game. And there’s probably a looooooot of refinement it needs.
I should probably turn the HRI and Chronos into another Vanity.
