The Art of Trolling 3.1.5 (undefeated in 4-round tournament)

anr_marsellus 1334

The newest version of the deck went undefeated in a 16-player tournament today. Changes in comparison with version 2.0 are the agenda suite and the takeout of Data Ravens. ChiLo City Grid turns Troll into a Data Raven that cannot be jacked out on encounter. The jank is real. Keegan Lane becomes an MVP in such a server. I wanted to play 3 Ash and 1 Ichi 1.0, but forgot to make the change (that deck would be version 3.2). Usual winning play is to hard score two Astros and then you can never advance any 5/3. I also won one game with an Astro and a 5-point Beale. Matchups in the tournament: Ken Tenma, Valencia (no DLR), Reina (with DLR) and Quetzal.

Very cool, I love the concept. Is the Heinlein grid worth the 4 influence and 2 card slots? I've used it a couple times in Bioroid decks and was usually a little disappointed.

Have you had any issues with the fact that ChiLo and Heinlein can't be used in the same server?

@kwind Heinlein+Troll+Ash is a super efficient and unbreakable Scoring Remote. Worth every pip of influence.

@tiedyedvortex nope. Heinlein goes to the Scoring remote, ChiLo on HQ or R&D as these usually have News Hounds protecting them as inner ICE. One Troll on the outside+Keegan+ChiLo makes that server quite safe - particularly as you play quite some of them.

Any thoughts on how to make this MWL legal? Would you cut the Astro or try and rejig influence elsewhere?
