A day later and I’m still furious about my loss to this HB deck. I hate losing to HB. So much :D.


#3

why the project ares?


#4

I think largely because it entertains Tim :).

Haha, It does entertain me, major lolz when you can 10 advance a Project Ares :wink:

My thoughts for including it…

  1. It’s a 2/4 and it fills a spot. Maybe a couple 1/3s would be better? I wanted the lowest agenda density (using the 2/3s of course) as possible.
  2. When it hits, it’s a surprise. I’ve never seen one played against me. I suspect this is the same for most others. And if I can slowly get it to 3 or 4 behind some ice and not score or rez it, there just might be a chance that my opponent may ignore it. In this tournament I over advanced it only once, but I was able to take out a keyhole and a breaker.
  3. It has a higher ceiling than the other 2 pointers (except perhaps Mandatory Upgrades, but that can become useless late game) The other 2/4s would probably have a higher value per game, but for a single card that I’m not building my deck around, I’ll take the higher ceiling over greater average value.

Am I miscounting, or does the HB deck really only have 13 influence (3 JH + 2 SW + 3 TB)?
