maxx is a goddamn brat she hogs all the attention
It was the average of the 3 ones that won SCs, except instead of shards or box-es I had a clone chip as the last 2 influence. Otherwise pretty stock.
Anyone done some thinking about adding slight modifications to give you an Accelerated Diagnostics Plan C? If you’ve already got Jackson Howard and Power Shutdown you can turn on some combos with very little extra commitment.
For example if you went:
+2 Shipment from Sansan * *
+1 Accelerated Diagnostics *
-1 Lotus Field *
-1 Sweeps Week * *
-2 Beanstalk Royalties
That enables scoring a 5/3, from the deck, for 3 credits. Add a Subliminal Messaging and you could score a 5/3 from hand for 2 credits (or 7 with Biotic Labour). You also get a more consistent Scorch combo, just make sure you don’t trash your R&D and hit their I’ve Had Worse. With an overscored Atlas you don’t even need to have a single card in hand, just have Jackson survive a turn. Also worth noting that Wormhole gives you an extra target for Shipment.
Not saying it’s an unfeasible idea, but I don’t think the deck could function without those Beanstalks and Sweeps Week. the econ can already be tight as it is if your deck feeds you garbage
this isn’t something you can really count on being able to do
Shipment from Sansan and Subliminal Messaging are roughly equivalent to Beanstalk Royalties for economy so I don’t see the switch as a problem.
Right, I’m saying you have to assume Anarchs have I’ve Had Worse in hand so it’s rarely worth the risk to shutdown scorch combo when they have a 5 card hand and sketchy against a 4 card hand. Although the combo also opens up triple Scorch which has a solid chance of working.
I can’t agree about Subliminal, Runners run all over you with this deck. Early game you rarely have enough ICE to cover all your servers, and mid to late game they’ve got their breaker suite and your gear check ICE becomes relatively transparent
God do I hate wasting deck slots on subliminal messaging.
Having expercienced my most severe loss yet against @maznaz with Maxx, I can confirm this. It’s all nice and well to have a very taxing piece of Ice in Tollbooth, but you got to be able to rez the darn thing first. Hell, I can’t even rez an Enigma 80% of the time without going to zero creds. And next turn, they Spoon it or something. I’m at my 6th revision for a Titan supermodernism against this archetype and now I’m certain that short of extreme luck, there’s nothing I can throw at it that gives me even a slight edge against it.
I’d love to hear how to consistently beat it, outside of “just play BS or NEH”. Crisium Grid is not an answer.
Umm… we already have a dedicated Mediohxcore (or lack thereof) thread:
I think it may be just a really bad match up for Titan. I played against a Titan deck my friend was running at the local store champs yesterday.
He’s a good player and the deck seemed solid but my Eater/Siphon/Keyhole MaxX easily beat him two times in the tournament and again in a casual match between rounds.
I’ve also never lost to Titan on OCTGN with that MaxX list.
it is a bad match up, hence why i came in here seeking advice some time ago ;d
So I played about 20 league games with Titan, and I got news - Mark Yale sucks. When he is useful he is great, but that happened just in a one game, so he sucks instead.
What’s your build?
He feeds into the major feature of the deck in my experience - when you are winning, your deck makes you win more, when you are not winning, your deck makes you lose. Hard.
Exactly. If you are scoring agendas, Mark Yale is awesome.
If you aren’t, it sucks. But if you aren’t scoring agendas, Mark Yale is likely not the problem, something else is going wrong.
I tried something that can switch plans midgame - rush, classic remote play, scorch, FA. So far mixed feelings, but not sure if build type has anything to do with Mark Yale being a lazy bum ;). Turns out the deck lives and dies on Project Atlas, which is not very good.

I did great with Titan, until I ran into Quetzal. Anarchs can be very annoying. If you don’t get the right ICE fast enough, you’re doomed. I don’t like the anarch matchup
I think you have two many plans in mind, concentrate on one with Plan B.
Scoring one Atlas out of three, with Biotic in deck, is pretty easy. Yesterday I scored one and lost another two - that one Atlas counter won me the game (Hostile for 7 points or Sea Source for flatline). I started with Atlas behind Chimera, leaving both HQ and R&D wide open and I was right - the cookie of free Maker’s Eye and Legwork was too much.
The only problem I have is with early game money - I’ve put two Succesful Demos for that, but I didn’t test it enough so I don’t know if it’s the right call.
Anyone have tried Grail suite in Titan? 8 inf left for other things looks fine.
Tried Swordsman yet?
Have you? Seems totally not worth it and a waste of influence to me. Eater/Keyhole decks have Femme to break it. Shapers use Mimic. The new Andy drip-econ-with-Overmind deck abuses Fairy; etc.
