Siphon Kate: 2nd Place London Regionals 2016

beyoken 5921

2nd of 77 players, went 5-3 on the day losing to careless play vs. Palana Kill and twice to a stupid Sol deck. (And by stupid, I mean stupid good.)

DECK SYNOPSIS

Build rig with 7 click turns. Hyperdriver + Proco is bonkers good. Play aggressive with Self-Modifying Code + Maker's Eye. Punish those who don't know better with recurring Siphons. Knock them out while they're down with the rogue Indexing. Can't rez that Assassin anymore, aww. Sounds almost like a Leela deck, except with Astrolabe to launch you into space vs. asset spam and SMC/Clone Chip versatility. When you're finally bored of inflicting NPE on your poor opponent, Notoriety your way to a win. This deck can do anything and everything. Don't play it, I think it sucks.

HOLY BATMAN THERE'S A NETWORKING

Networking is a competitively viabl- nope, nice try. Wish it were a Dirty Laundry on the day (though I did face far less SYNC than anticipated). More on this in my video review.

With Indexing, did you consider "Freedom Through Equality" over Notoriety?

@RubbishyUsername WATCH THE GODDAMN VIDEO!!! TL;DW: Notoriety activated in situations where FTE wouldn't have during the tournament, either because it was still undrawn in my deck, or because I have Same Old Thing + Hyperdriver with Notoriety in bin. This deck plays aggressively, and cannot afford to wait for the FTE to show up before firing off the Indexing.

Similar to your networking I had a one of Paper Tripping in my Geist deck on the weekend as it kept getting hosed by midseasons in testing, then I didn't get midseasonsed once all day.
