Weyland Facile Startup

Diogene 2181

Easy to play in Startup. This represent well Weyland : glacier, lots of creds, rig and runner shooting.


The strategy is to make two towers : a single scoring remote and R&D. Those should have 3 ices and more if possible.

Those ice can be put in any server : Pharos, Magnet, Ballista.

For the (single) scoring remote : Palisade. For HQ : Afshar, it is enough to put 2 ices on HQ. Preferably on Archive : Tithe.

Tricks of the deck :

  1. Pharos is not expected to be advanced, unless you are sure the runner does not pack ice destruction or ice derez or Botulus.
  2. Hansei Review should be used on Subliminal Messaging if possible.
  3. Rez Magnet as late as possible, to allow you to get that Botulus or Tranquilizer.
  4. Use Predictive Planogram to get 3 cards and 1 , this will speed up your game.
  5. Use Reversed Accounts to bait runs on your big scoring remote. If the runner pass through, they must still pay 3 to trash it (further tax). Otherwise, advance it and take the creds from the runner (just as taxing).
  6. Prefered cards to bring back with Spin Doctor : Predictive Planogram and Hedge Fund (exception for agendas).
  7. Send a Message effect is best used on Pharos and Ballista, as it let you get back the whole value of your credits spent.

I believe this will be easy ("facile" in french) to play this deck. It should be pretty forgiving for any player.
