Thanks for sharing these

Indexing seems like a misfit in Kit decks. What if they have one ice on R&D and you index them but can’t get in a second time?

Interesting that you are only running one Code Gate breaker, but I’m surprised it is Yog.0, since the Parasite, Atman, and Yog.0 all make you dependent on Datasuckers, this seems like an undiverse and vulnerable choice to focus in. You’re going all-in the Datasucker synergy, but also being vulnerable to being crippled by not drawing them or having them trashed. I suppose your Clone Chips and Self-Modifying Codes are there to lower the chance of that being totally unrecoverable.

I think Atman is in general an unusual choice for a Kit deck, but I’ve never actually gotten into Kit, sadly.

kit ice destruction… ive played against a few of these and once they get the sucker tokens you are done. she simply destroys all the problematic ice that spoof her ability and then walks into your centrals. you get purge locked where you have to purge but cannot because she has at least one central you cannot keep her out of so purging does nothing.

NBN certainly is making the rounds. i still like to find room for cyberdex trial. you can create some nice scoring windows purging away datasucker tokens.

Cool to see a Kit list at the top!

Indexing is weird here, especially without Tinkering to set up the second run. I’m pretty nervous to run Professional Contacts economy against NBN these days as well, since you’re always one Breaking News / Character Assassionation from losing Contacts and taking a huge tempo hit.

I’d have to test the deck before saying for sure but I really miss having Stimhack in here to fund the initial SMC + Yog.
