Some of you may remember a deck that did the rounds back in the days of Lunar Cycle. "49 Shades of Grey" it was called, based on being comprised entirely of neutral cards and legal for any corp ID.
Here's an updated version in light of an important new release. Unfortunately that new card isn't neutral, so the name of the deck's had to go, but on the bright side that justifies me putting Jackson Howard back in.
However, we're still legal with every ID! Shuffle your IDs at the start of the game, pick one at random and play with that. Some are obviously better than others, but just consider it a nice bonus that you've preempted their Employee Strike when you draw Nisei Division: The Next Generation.
The new card demanding the re-invention is, of course, Indian Union Stock Exchange. Turns out a (non-unique!) card that gives you a credit whenever you rez or play an out-of-faction card - including all neutrals - is really good when your entire deck is made of neutrals!
(Subliminal Messaging gets particular mention here as able to generate you 2, 3, even 4 creds every turn when the runner doesn't run).
Unfortunately, while there are some really strong Neutral agenda now, we're still lacking in any really good Neutral ICE or defensive upgrades. This is where PAD Factory and Will-o'-the-Wisp come in. Install Will-o'-the-Wisp in your scoring server, stick some counters on it with PAD Factory, then send the runner's breaker to the bottom of the stack when they run it. Scoring window ahoy!
I've been doing not all too badly with it - not great, by any means, but not as badly as you'd think for "I shuffle all the Corp IDs and pick one at random at the start of the game". Also, if you get Jinteki Biotech: Life Imagined (for which I only have one copy in the stack I'm shuffling) you're allowed to swap for the one of your choice; that's part of the game, not the deck-building.
Anyway, have fun with this!
