Please see Derived From for basic deck notes, and http://netrunnerdb.com/en/decklist/10423/forcing-the-hand-v2 for the second version.
v3 comes after many games, most of which were losses against the same NBN FA w/ Muckraker and Data Raven featuring prominently. I just couldn't scum out a win. Had some success against a HB semi-glacier w/ Punitive. Although I fell into the Punitive once, it was worth it.
Firstly, to address the elephant in the room of a 46 card deck. I'm essentially playing the deck as if I was Gabe, but instead of taking cash, I expose. To this end, I've been tempted to throw in a Sneakdoor Beta or two, but it just has never fit. And for the record, no, it's not that terrible. Just play it like a standard runner instead of a 40 card deck and it's hunky dory.
Swapping out Quest Completed for R&D Interface allows for a little more versatility, and the potential for an RnD lock to win, instead of just scumming out a victory with HQ hits and money draining stall tactics. (Which whilst they don't get the game - are mostly hilarious)
The Supplier actually made his way back into my deck...and then exited again after more playtesting. The deck just has to play hyper-aggressively, only pausing to put cash on Kati Jones, and maybe Tri-maf Contact if going for a big play. For the most part, economy should be made off Compromised Employee, Calling in Favors and now, Account Siphon. Tags should be shed immediately, to avoid either Kati Jones getting pinched, or a Tri-maf Contact getting done in. Unless you have a Fall Guy or two out and the corp has no cash, then you can wait.
Raymond Flint is a certifiable badass in this deck. The ability to rez cards on the corp's turn is insane. If you're not sure whether something is an agenda or not, and Blackguard is out, Raymond Flint can act as constant threat. If a single advancement token goes down, you expose something, they have to rez it - and you hope that means they have no more money. Then you can do some combination of Parasite, Datasucker and Inside Job to steal. Also the bad pub accesses are alright.
Crescentus is there merely to be more annoying. You can also scum things on HQ - with the derez with Crescentus, into a force rez. Which hopefully is netting you money as well through Compromised Employee.
Something like Running Interference that really double screws the corp even further - especially considering I can make exposures during the run with Silhouette's natural ability or Raymond Flint. Alternatively, something like Snitch would also play into that.
Some of the economy being swapped out for Social Engineering. Problem is obviously influence, which is tight enough as is. But it would be a fun addition. It would also mean I could actually use some cards from the Lunar Cycle, which I haven't found use for yet in this deck!
I still don't think this deck is ever going to be T1 competitive, but I'd still like to get it to the point of (mostly) functional. Right now, it's a bit eh.
Naturally, as always, comments and suggestions are more than welcome!
