It's a Gagarin kill-deck! That made the Top 8 at a Regional!
28 players, the deck lost 1 game before cut to Top 8, where it lost to a Valencia, then won to another Valencia with almost the same deck, and thankfully I was knocked out before I faced ANOTHER Valencia.
The idea is that cards such as Capital Investors and The Root are too dangerous to leave on the board, so a runner has to put in some effort to trash them - in the process, paying more to Gagarin's ability, usually giving me an extra credit thanks to Paywall Implementation, and crucially, making a successful run.
Most of my opponents were pretty careful to not let me out-money them - which is where the Posted Bounty comes in (and in the end, did more for tagging the runner than SEA Source did).
Meanwhile, careful runners tend not to run - flatline or not, many games saw me get within range of a scoring win.
Snare! is there to keep my centrals scary, since Gagarin's ability diverts the runner into running R&D and HQ more than usual.
Cortex Lock, obviously, is cheap ICE that people don't expect. It doesn't always hit, since it loses so much power in the mid-game, but the impact when it does is tremendous.
