Into The Nexus (Leeds Store Championship 3rd Place)

Pinkwarrior 2294

The deck did very well on the day only losing a single game and only after the top 8 cut. This deck really pulled me through the tournament. The loss was my 3rd NEH of the day and some of that was due to me letting a clot fall of my PW early & partially not getting a Clone Chip to help solve that issue.

The Security Nexus really puts you back in the drives seat with your ability mostly getting used on ICE like Pop-up to bypass your ability when you have money. If you dont pull a Nexus then Faust is your crutch until you do also the regular breakers & Underworld Contact can keep you going since no-one likes to put big ICE down against Nasir.

Against glacial well you will just wreck them decks.

@Orion No Problem, I really enjoyed playing the deck today and if other people can enjoy it also then that's good news to me.

Why not play Tyson Observatory to search for Nexus?

Always just setup time. Not a lot of good hardware you want to trash for it.

@nootroonoor partially like AsteriskCGY says setup time, deck slots is another reason.

I also feel you can lose focus on what is important if your taking cards like that. If you haven't found your console then you still need to run you can't just rely on it that's why the Faust is their and the Personal Workshop helps.

Very cool deck, I remember seeing it the other week and it was terrifying. Well played on getting to 3rd!

Pretty cool deck. Anything you would change?

@mcpba Id change John Masanori for Patron when its out. other than that not really less the meta changes. maybe play around with other Fracters like Inti / Battering Ram.

Very good deck. I'm trying be succesful with nasir for about a year but this nbn shit in any form was a hard counter. It seems that nexus is an answer. Thx for postig - I'll play it with pleasure :-)

@monky Am glade to hear it's working for you, I find that the Security Nexus is good but I think it's actually a combination of stuff that makes it viable against NBN.

I've noticed the Rabbit Hole's do alot of the work cos of all the tracer ICE in the current NBN builds & of course Clot is a big help. But so is Personal Workshop with it been able to just leave Clot their not quite in play but always available & Faust when you have no money but need to get in.
