Nexus Geist

lumbendil 2

This deck tries to prevent the weakness of the limited uses and fixed strength in the Breaking and Entering suite by using the following.

Security Nexus: This lets you bypass one ice per turn which is majorly anoying for you. High strength or many subs ice fall in this category.

Security Chip: This allows you to boost all your one use breakers so you're able to break things outside your strength range.

The deck is quite light on econ, but I think it's enough. The most expensive setup should be done early on, installing Security Nexus + 3 Rabbit Holes. Once that is done, the rest is quite cheap, and except for Mongoose, your breakers are free to use and 0-1 to install.

The rest is quite common criminal stuff. Also, important to note, Inside Job also lets you save some breakers use.

@lumbendil I've been thinking of trying to create a Geist / Security Nexus deck lately. Have you tested this at all?

Do you think that Rabbit Hole is better than Access to Globalsec?

@Zeromus I did test it a bit, but just a few games on jinteki.net. I picked Rabbit Hole because I think that being able to make Security Nexus be a "Pay To rez the ICE + Pay to keep me out" at no cost is great. To get to there with Access to Globalsec you have to use 2 more clicks to install them (already worth the 3 credits) + draws which you filter out early in this case.

Also, in the event of not finding Security Nexus early enough, they already pay off to use Security Chip as a +3 strength to all your 1 use breakers.

With that said, I think this deck needs quite a lot more of testing. I'm building an iteration with a full persistent central breaker suite by shifting some cards around.

Alright, I'll take this list to jank night tomorrow and see how it goes. I'm worried a lot about Weyland barriers. I think an Inti or something could be really useful in there.

That's the main reason I'm working on fitting in some permanent breakers, otherwise if they manage to make you waste enough runs you're out of the game.
