Way at the end of Lunar and in the Valley, I made a NBN rush deck that performed quite well. I think it’s actually in this thread somewhere. Most games involved a 3-pt Beale because the Runner could just not get in.
I’m interested in reviving it, with all the new NBN cards there must be something here to update it.
Here is the old deck, I found it only lost to Noise / Imp and to some extent Keyhole (depending on ICE draw), with everything else being very, very beatable. Even the older versions of PPVP Kate couldn’t keep up (and they played CyCy exclusively back then). The deck had a bunch of two-card combos that always found a way to come together in the opening draw. The tag sprinkle was/is the most dubious strategy, but the Closed Accounts and UCF posed a threat to tagged Runners and gave me an out to credit-rich builds.

Everything from ID to ICE to econ I am dying to update. I loved the Grail for surprising, and RSVP took Merlins spot and created the most feel-good influence spread in TWIY whose time is unfortunately up. I’m willing to go up to a 49 card deck if it makes sense and still features aggressive draw or Fast Track. If anyone has any opinions on updates, I’d love to hear it. I love this little deck and always had a blast playing it. It won a good amount of games, right before the dawn of Good-stuff MaxX and Noise Chronotype. Imp and Film Critic shelved it, but things have progressed and stabilized a bit.
