I played some games with my Titan pure Glacier. (this one, http://netrunner.meteor.com/decks/Rb5tMXWPZLBGYbne8/ )
When it works, it works like crazy. It makes remotes that are just ridiculous. It makes centrals that are too. And Ash/OTG makes it so much worse.
You never run out of money. Never. Unless you get abused… which was the issue. The good testing games I had were vs a controlling MaxX deck with Siphons and Eater. I fell behind early and she snagged 5-6 points right off the bat off early Keyhole. Getting a early Crisium helps. Gettings more ice than Agendas helps too. The games I played just dealt me some weird hands.
But I always felt like “Give me 1 turn, and I can lock this up and recover”
I never got that turn. Its a little rough to play from behind with the 3 pointers going so early. So outside that variance though… whats the deal?
Well, you have a lot of good ice. Almost all of it is taxing. Almost all of it can ETR. You make a lot of money… you have a lot of potential Mark Yale bucks, which is glorious in that deck. Once you get bunkered in and plan for the OTG or Ash play… its back breaking into your economy to stop it as the runner. Outside of David recursion… and Knight to a lesser extent.
I think I need to tweak it to endure the brutal Anarch of today… but it did great vs a Gabe Knight deck… and it looks sharp vs a Shaper deck since you have GRNDL and 1 pointers to bait the runner into taxing runs.
I will work on this more. Seems like a fun twist on glacier.
And you can always just add Punitives…
