Alright Guys, I have been going through many versions of this deck for the last week now, and I have officially come to StimHack to outsource some thinking power. I really think this could be the start to Weyland's come back, especially with Blue Sun dropping next pack. I'm gonna talk for a little bit about the deck, then list what I have right now, and go through some cards I was including/thinking to include in other versions.
So number one, this deck needs to make a bunch of money. It needs to be able to rez the grid combo, which costs 9 combined, as well as the ice to protect it. Number two, that needs to be some taxing ice, because unless you are running ash or corporate troubleshooter(Which i thought about), you can't really pay to win.
Now, I have gone through versions that use Draco and Data Raven to try to give tags to ice, with the threat of Scorched. Other versions ran no scorched, but punitive's because the amount of three pointers you have, but that has been inconsistent as well.
This is what I have as of right now.

I was running Closed accounts as tag punishment at one point, but took that out as well.
This latest version has made the constant decision to take out the flatline cards, wanted everyone's opinion on that as well.
It was running Hive as well to lock them out of R&D for awhile, but I found that it was useless if I didn't get it early, and it obviously isn't strong late game once i have points scored.
As above, i thought about Ash and corporate trouble shooter, but I felt with the combo that would take a lot of set up to work, and I chose toybox over troubleshooter to rez the big ice. I might go back to troubleshooter to protect the cards that been Oversight AI'd.
How does everyone feel about Oversight AI here? I feel as though it's strong, but with the existence and prevalence of Femme and sharpshooter that using it on a hadrian's or archer isn't very safe.
That was a lot of talking, what do you guys think?
