Untested/Non-competitive Decklist MegaThread


Here’s the first D&D NBN deck I’m gonna actually test thoroughly, both IRL and on OCTGN. Putting it in this thread for a reason.

Cards up to Data and Destiny

Deck built on NetrunnerDB.


I know it triggers the already good RSVP and it ends up taxing 6-8 credits, but is Predictive Algorithm worth it over, say, Lag Time? Seems like it would be more powerful.


I did a somewhat long write-up on NRDB, regarding my current choice. I believe that a 0-cost current is important, because you don’t want to be taxing yourself on every replay of it. So far with this list I usually end up playing my current 3-4 times per game. Lag Time makes this 6-8c for me every game, which I’m not sure the deck can sustain. After I toy with Algorithm for awhile I will be trying a Lag Time build, but it will definitely look very different.


Yeah, that makes sense. I think I’ll try to copy your deck and tweak it a bit, I think you are onto something here :slight_smile:


Let me know how it goes. Here is the current list (few changes from above, in fact this list is more current)


and yes I am aware of the susceptibility to Atman 4. Not sure how to fix that, beyond swapping Eli to Markus which never feels right.


After playing a bit with it, I think that your deck has the same problem another deck I was testing does: The cards are good, the synergy between cards is amazing but the deck doesn’t really do anything threatening.

It seems to be recurring issue with post-D&D NBN decks, actually. I always end up with a deck full of cool, powerful cards like Daily Bussiness Show or Product Placement whose main goal is something as dull and as non-threatening as scoring a blank 5/3 agenda. Sure, it’s not bad, but when we have Keegan Lane, Team Sponsorship and 24/7 News around, it seems difficult to justify it. There must be a better way to use those cards.

Based on some good ideas borrowed from friends and my own sync testing. What do people think?


Lilly lockwell is the jam. I have a sync deck that does similar stuff, only mine still includes kill components. I think you will want 1 of snatch and grab just for film critic though. Any deck that hinges on midseasons should. With all that cash, you should be able to land both at some point (MSR and SnG)


My personal attempt at a NEARPAD-style deck. I’ve been playing modifications to this deck since I started playing in June or so. It’s been doing all right but my opponents are jinteki.net pubbies and a meta consisting of like six guys, one of whom plays nothing but jank and another was surprised to see Reina have Siphon.

Thoughts: I might lose the tollbooths for sansans since I have better luck fastadvancing stuff than trying to tax out the runner. Also Encryption Protocol is probably turning into Team Sponsorship. I really oughta go up to three Jacksons. Ghost Branch is basically just a Clot bluff. Basically I’d like to see what thoughts people have to make this a little more competitive- I know it’s not gonna be a tier one deck but DRT shellgames are fun and I want to make it as strong as possible.


Now that D&D is days away I put some effort in deckbuilding a Sol deck. I’m always interested in the underdogs and trying to make them work, and the plethora of currents available typically lean towards glacier, so I’d figure I’d go with that and try some NBN glacier. I crafted up an ICE suite that punishes mostly Gordian Blade and Mimic, while attempting to heavily tax d4v1d* as well. I think a 0 cost current is very important in Sol, as well as some situational bombs. Cerebral Static is interesting, ELP and Housekeeping are almost always good, but I wanted to go with something I toyed with in the past - Lag Time. I run a bunch of really annoying ICE that get even more annoying with +1 STR, and if the +1 isn’t necessary I can always put out a Marketing.

*Depending on Lag Time.

The things I aren’t happy with are the Universal Connectivity Fee, Eli 1.0s, Lotus Fields, and Gutenberg. I do want the ability to Closed Accounts and include All Seeing I, so some tagging is wanted. I really like Archangel and Targeted Marketing. So much that I kinda want the Eli 1.0s to be Markus 1.0 but that’s just crazy. Plus the cost curve of this deck is already pretty high.

A hilarious Stirling deck. Get out your Film Critics and start running. If you accidentally score an agenda without a Film Critic ready, sell it to Data Dealer.

The Source (and Fall Guy) is great when Film Critic means you don’t trash The Source yourself.

been playing this for 3 weeks at both the LGS nights each week. it’s been treating me very well. not appropriate for competitive play due to occasionally going very long, but I consider it a decent IG build. leans 100% on Caprice for scoring. plenty of other anecdotes about piloting I could post but I’d rather just post the list. was originally 49 cards and 13 influence; went up to 54 by adding 2 more Tips, 1 more Crick and Excalibur, and 1 more NAPD. never looked back. 54 is definitely the appropriate number for this build, of that I have no doubt

Looks pretty good. Love the Tips and upgrade/asset spread. How’s the money curve? It looks like you have a lot of econ but not much to spend it on. Then again I’m really bad at judging Caprice’s average true cost. Do you think you could afford more expensive ICE? Seems like a super big reliance on Caprice.


It is about 95% reliance on Caprice, with the other 5% being picked up by Ash if the opponent lets your money get out of hand. Last night versus Kit I sat above 50 credits during the entire late-game. The one time Kit cracked the remote I didn’t even rez Caprice, just rezzed Ash which Kit could neither beat nor trash.

Money feels great in this deck. I’ve yet to have a problem with it. The Sundews may seem redundant with MHC, but with 54 cards I need one or two assets to stick early. Basically you need money to potentially play many psi games and rez your Susan.

ICE suite always feels great. Haven’t even considered swapping it up yet. Last night my RND late game was triple Pup into Eli, Caprice and Crisium (versus Kit). Didn’t end up needing to rez my Caprice on remote because she gave up after seeing the Ash.

Anarch is definitely the toughest match-up. Against Noise you have to get lucky and rush your first Nisei. Criminal isn’t too bad; last night I mulliganed into no ICE versus Leela, took a first turn Siphon, but managed to stabilize and win by mid-game by a very rare flatline. Your ICE is very cheap so Criminal can’t lock you for too long, and the deck’s very low agenda density defends itself while you are locked.

I’d say the way to play against the deck is to do nothing but money up and build board until I start to try to score. If the Runner has A) way to break Excalibur and B) money to run the remote as many times as it takes this deck could never really win.


Why not try two Battys over the third Caprice and the single Crisium Grid? They can be stacked and protect HQ from Siphon as well as Crisium Grid does. I think Batty really helped my Genomics builds to get out of the Caprice reliance.

We have a Genomics thread, you should also put it there so we can keep it going :smiley:


I rarely find ETR over HQ (it’s usually Pup tbh) and I want the 3 Caprice since I want to find one as early as possible for a number of reasons. Early Caprice on HQ is my best tool versus Criminal, and early Caprice on remote is my best tool versus Anarch to score an early Nisei. I haven’t tried Batty at all yet, but it would definitely help my Cricks which often become blank late game. I suppose I could post the list in the IG thread; maybe I will eventually.


Here’s my idea for a Gangsign/Kate deck that has produced some enjoyable matches but could definitely still use some tweaking. Specifically, I’m not sure about the economy engine. I get the impression that the general consensus is that drip econ isn’t viable these days due simply to it’s slow speed. The breaker suite is iffy too - not sure if I should be saving influence with Lady and whether Atman with both Deus X and Sharpshooter is overkill. Would love feedback.

Because it was suggested I put it here :slight_smile:

So, armed with only a single core, all of the deluxe expansions, What Lies Ahead, and Future Proof, I have decided to (attempt to) create a passable Sunny deck. Looking for advice on card draw. I’d appreciate comments on NRDB, but here’s fine too.

-3 Data Folding, +3 Daily Casts
-2 Modded, -3 Striker, -1 Shrike, -1 Sherman, + 2 Zu.13, + ???


What do you like about Wasteland? It doesn’t seem efficient; does it give you credits if the corp trashes a piece of ice when you have a chess piece hosted on it?
