Lol, Akitaro mode unlocked :slight_smile:

@Sirpim: In my experience playing The Prof, people tend to underestimate me just because they know I can’t Siphon. Do you feel any of your opponents in the tournament were influenced by this effect?

(personally, I think he’s pretty strong because of all the shaper tutoring madness/flexibility combined with the raw power of Anarch programs)

SirPrim, would you mind talking a little more about your gameplan for piloting these decks? How does the NEXT deck cope with normal early-game pressure? I assume you’re looking to aggressive negotiation for agendas while there’s a timing window?

@PeekaySK: I’m pretty sure I wasn’t underestimated per se. In fact even though I’m from Germany, some French players seemed to know “who I was”. But maybe they underestimated the ID? Who knows, that’s hard to say.

@hypomodern: By normal early pressure you mean stuff like facechecking? I’ll usually won’t rez HQ Ice against Andromeda for example, so she doesn’t know how to Siphon me. Losing one agenda in the process is better than losing the game. Also Successful Demostration gives me my money back with interest should the runner facecheck too much.
AggNeg is usually used to fetch the next agenda after a score and with EC there is a scoring window :smile:
Perfect storm would be EC plus a Vitruvius with one counter, then AggNeg for your 3pter. A single SfSS now scores from hand (for one measily credit)

Apparently this was up to Mala Tempora, not True Colors. Changing now.
