I've made some key changes since publishing that really streamline the deck.
-1 Crescentus, -3 Access to GlobalSec, +1 Rabbit Hole, +3 Earthrise Hotel
More draw, faster link setup, and thins the deck out providing a much faster setup.
-Cutlery, +2 Vamp, +1 Rook
Cutlery wasn't doing much here and way too situational. Vamp allows for draining the Corp and then Rook ing a remote to get in during scoring windows. Lots more HQ and econ pressure here.
-2 Symmetrical Visage, +2 Kati Jones
More sustainable econ. Allows for big vamp plays as well.
This deck is MWL legal.
There are a lot of great Reina decks out there, but few, if any, make use of all her ID has to offer. Link used to not offer much outside of paltry trace benefits and Underworld Contact, perhaps the occasional cloud breaker. But now traces are everywhere, there are more cloud breakers to choose from than ever before and we have a monster of a console in the form of Security Nexus. Many have turned to Kate "Mac" McCaffrey: Digital Tinker for an out of faction Nexus build, and for good reason. But I wondered, are we missing a golden opportunity with the under utilized Reina Roja and Edward Kim: Humanity's Hammer in not building around their link? This deck is an expirement in doing just that.
Disclaimer: I'm not a great deckbuilder by any means, but I have yet to see anyone try this so I wanted to throw it out there and see if people much better at this than I am can be inspired to make something awesome out of this.
DDoS and Security Nexus let you get into 2 Ice deep servers without a breaker and can allow for remote pressure. Crescentus not only opens up DDoS windows but also makes the Corp pay to rez ice multiple times, at an added cost with Reina and Rook (only to be bypassed by Nexus or killed by Eater later.)
The rest is econ and draw. Career Fair helps with Liberated Account and DDoS. I'm a little worried about not having enough draw, the setup time, and possibly getting remote locked. Also Swordsman can be bypassed, but not shutdown which means it will eat up my Nexus use every turn.
Hope you like the deck! Suggestions are definitely welcome.
