Shipment from Titan - 1st (5-1) ANRPC Child's Play Tournamen

Identity

Description by the author: internet_potato 288

Big props to @nidhogg for the bones of this deck. I used to play a lot of rush/FA Titan, but his recent build with Shipment from Tennin and Audacity really turned up the speed.

This deck went 3-1 in swiss and 2-0 in the cut to take first place. It is really, really fast. Being able to FA on a budget helps you maintain tempo, and getting in-faction support from Audacity and 3-influence support from Shipment from Tennin lets you avoid compromising on jhow/GFI in your deck-building.

The loss came in the first round against @strube's Leela deck, and it wasn't even close. I think I have blocked out the memory of what exactly happened that game, but I'm sure it involved a lot of siphons and having Project Atlas stolen repeatedly.

The swiss wins were against Andromeda (I think?), Sunny, and Alice. In the cut, it beat the same Alice and Inversificator Kit. They were all either 2 Atlas + 3 hostile or 3 atlas + 1 hostile, and typically were done in under 10 minutes.

The game plan is to either rush or FA the first atlas, then protect R&D + HQ and dig for combo pieces. If you get a Shipment from Tennin or Audacity, burn a token for atlas and score it. If you get an atlas, burn a token for whichever FA tool makes the most sense at the time and score it. I was lucky enough to score an atlas on turn 2 in several games, and otherwise I think I rushed behind Enigma to start the party. If SfT becomes popular (pretty sure it will), then people will definitely get better at playing against it by running on naked centrals in the early game.

Sandburg never got installed on the day, but it's there to shore up the late game if things go south and you are in danger of losing on R&D digs or have to score a GFI. Your ice tends to become quite porous if you have to score multiple Hostile Takeover's, and you frequently wind up at 20+ credits due to a combination of HT, econ operations, and Mark Yale. Preemptive Action can be nice for dealing with an early Audacity play.

This deck could use a CVS or two and a Crisium Grid, but I still consider it an early iteration and wanted to focus on the primary game plan and not worry too much about tech.
