SimonMoon wrote an excellent summary on why Lakshmi Asa decks are the best kind of Asa decks, and how to play them. Having been playing them for the last 6 months, on and off, I can confidently state that this is 100% true.
I made a grand total of 6 changes from that list, so this won't take me long to go through. The three VLCs that got eaten by SBL 21.05 got replaced by boring old Hedge Funds, because I needed that early turn money (Nico and the Doctor mostly make up for the missing draw over the course of a game anyway). And then my spicier pick was to cut one Biotic and one Marilyn (and swap a Sandstone for a Hagen) in order to make space for two DRMs - credit to Imrahil's NEH deck for inspiring me with that idea. DRM is fantastic with Lakshmi, and makes up for the lack of Cybernetics Court in the current pool in a way that no other card I've tried does. With a Jeeves on the board, one of my favourite moves is (1) Fully Op, draw until you find one agenda and a DRM, (2) DRM the second copy of that agenda into hand, and install it, (3) play another Fully Op or a Hedge Fund for even more cash, (4) oh look, an extra click! Now you can install a Lakshmi, a cheap-to-rez asset, an ice somewhere, or even just advance the GFI you previously installed that turn.
On the day it went 2-2, with both wins feeling fairly comfortable, but both losses coming against a very cool Sunny deck that completely blindsided me. Given the knowledge of what to expect from them I would have played that match much more differently, but that's my fault for not adapting quick enough during the games.
Cheers to Akira and her team for organising a fun tournament!
