Greenlake Games Store Championship 2/21/2015

This is the Exile deck that I took to the Greenlake Games Store Championship (24 people) and placed 1st with. Out of 8 games played, Exile won 6.

This deck is based on two principles, gamble for days and having the perfect solution for every problem.

For those of you not familiar with gamble for days, this is an economy package that originated in Kate. Typically focusing on playing Cache for free using Kate "Mac" McCaffrey: Digital Tinker's ability onto Scheherazade, which nets you 4 credits. Effectively turning Cache into Sure Gamble. It gets further value if you are able to then sell the Cache to Aesop's Pawnshop. However, this economy suite has been modified to be very efficient in Exile: Streethawk. By using Sahasrara, you can turn almost any program into a Sure Gamble. Since you play a toolbox style deck, you don't need every card for every match. This means that you can start installing Net Shield netting 4 credits when playing against Blue Sun. The other strength of using Exile: Streethawk is added tempo for many of the events you play. For instance, Scavenge turns into a Sure Gamble that draws a card.

As a note, I firmly believe that this deck could not be better if it were Kate "Mac" McCaffrey: Digital Tinker. Exile's ability gives you upside on Scavenge, Test Run, and Clone Chip. This is huge because it provides the tempo that allows you to keep your economy high. You always need to be installing a program to sell the next turn to Aesop's Pawnshop, so being able to draw without spending a click helps. In addition, Exile is able to preform multiple things at the end of the corporation turn before the runner turns begins. For instance, grabbing Cache via Clone Chip at the end of the corp. turn. This draws you a card, nets you 7 credits (4 for Cache, 3 for Aesop's Pawnshop), all before your turn begins.

The other half of the deck is based around having the right tool for the right job. This deck plays like it has a fluid rig. If you want to attack HQ, install Nerve Agent, if you get locked out, sell it and install Medium. In addition, you have tools that let you deal with all sorts of weird match ups. Net Shield and Deus X hose Jinteki: PE decks. Paricia helps against asset focused decks. The challenge to playing this deck is being able to keep in mind what programs are where and how you get them when you need them.

This asset is great for baiting runs because the asset is still useful if they don't take the bait. A fully stacked install-advance-advance/runner turn/advance-advance-trigger will net you 12 […]

A very odd card. As noted by goldstep below, this card compares unfavourably with other shaper draw cards if you assume a normal handsize. Thinking in terms of value analysis, this is a card that is […]

The usefulness of this card seems to hinge on whether you're running Trick of Light in the same deck. While it can be nice to save a click and a credit on advancing a piece of ice, that token will […]
