[Throwback] Seamless kill NEH

nbkelly 709

I'm going to be (trying to) publishing a list a day for two weeks, in anticipation for my upcoming New Year, Old Cards throwback tournament.

Happy New Year!

This is basically a downgrade of my eternal format NEH cheese list. Your primary goal is to stick a Breaking News on the table, have the runner neglect to check it, and then score it with Seamless Launch, and kill with BOOM!.

The rest of your cards (mostly) don't actually matter - most of the assets are to trick the runner into wasting time. Malia Z0L0K4 is there to blank New Angeles City Hall or Citadel Sanctuary, or any other resource the runner may have that protects them. Notably, you don't have a good way to defend against No One Home, because it is virtual.

Spin Doctor, Daily Business Show (make sure to get your value on the runner turn) and Rashida Jaheem should help you draw into your win conditions as fast as possible, but it might be worth jamming in copies of Alexa Belsky and/or Predictive Algorithm. Try to keep in mind that sometimes you don't want to shuffle the deck with spin doctor.

The alternate win condition is that you're able to force the runner into a gross prisec server, or through turnpikes over and over, and just grind them out of money to safely check things. All in all, you can realistically get a kill on turn 2 against a runner that does not interact, or happens to not choose the correct remote.

There's not a huge amount to this list - the archetype can cheese out some good wins, but I can't figure out how to optimize it for this format.
