Hello, this is a brief write up of a deck I've been doing well with and, more importantly, enjoying a lot. I now offer it up to the Hivemind for improvement, discussion and others' enjoyment.
The theory behind it stems from the observation that Weyland have quietly been owning the first half of the San-San cycle, but not necessarily Weyland as we know it. This deck aims to use some of these newer cards to tax out the runner and dominate the late game.
ID - Gagarin; in my opinion a uniquely taxing effect relative to the amount of work on the corps part to achieve it, makes every asset and upgrade significantly better and lets you easily score a Chronos Project.
Agendas - Taxilicious. Chronos project is not for scoring out, see section on sweet tech. Utopia Fragment + NAPD is good.
Econ - BBG + assets. I wanted to try it, it's good. Great synergy with ID as mentioned above. Could go for capital investors + Pads, but I prefer the higher trash costs of PCs and Roots.
Ice - Weyland now has great taxing sentries. Used to run errand boy, but realised I had free influence. Negotiator MVP for hitting like a datapike; datapike emitted because yog. Quicksand has also rocked, runners will very rarely run through it once it's rezzed, which makes it better than wall of static.
Sweet tech - Loans, Towns, Chronos and Crisium. Why I built the deck. FFG are finally making glacier Weyland as viable as they thought they did with BWBI. They are also determined to give Weyland all the metagame answers they used to give to Jinteki. This deck aims to use these cards to controlthe lategame; Town vs Anarch, Loans vs Kate, Chronos vs everyone. These can all be tweaked around depnding on meta. Maybe bootcamp can be added (good vs Val + tutor).
A note on Corporate Town, Chronos is useless for scoring out so the forfeit isn't a big deal. 5 to trash is great, and people fear it enough to always pay and even hunt for it in remotes (which is just fine with me).
Can't think of much else to say. Kill Hactivism with Paywall, interns is good.
TLDR: Snowbally agendas with taxing ice and ID. Who'd have thought that could ever work?
