An update to my take on Pre-Paid Kate Ken, instead of Kate.
A recent comment pointed out to me the inefficiency of Lucky Find compared to Dirty Laundry, especially in a Ken deck. With 3 Prepaid VoicePADs and a Desperado out, Dirty Laundry comes in at 7 creds for Ken's first click (9 if you can add Security Testing in the mix), which compared to 5.5 creds for a single click with Lucky Find (thanks to it being a double [9 + 1 + 1] / 2), so bye-bye Lucky Find.
Most of the remaining events are pretty standard for Criminal decks.
Tyson Observatory is a great card, and helps you get you hardware out quicker. It is a seriously underplayed card IMO.
As for the the rest... lots of runs events for Ken's ability. Not many expect a Knifed in Criminal (but it suits Ken more than the other Crim IDs), which is nice for dealing with Curtain Walls, Wotans and the like. The Femme Fatale is in there for the same reason - ideally using Retrieval Run paid for with your Pre-Paids to bring her hideous cost from 9 to ZERO, thanks very much!
Donut Taganes is something that I am just trying out here, as Ken's ability negates his effect, and I am curious to see what effect an extra cred might have on the Corp's ability to lay down some of their more common events. One less credit on the trace for Punitive Counterstrike and Midseason Replacements are the two main ones that come to mind. If he doesn't make much difference, then I will replace him with a Professional Contacts for more card draw.
Would love to find room for a couple of Hacktivist Meetings - seriously love that card (and Housekeeping for the Corps - but not when played against me, of course!). I would probably drop the Knifed and Rachel Beckman to put them in.
