Quetzal's Burden

LynxMegaCorp 1335

Its been winning games in these vicious times, so I thought I'd share. Fear The Masses is completely optional, but devastating with only 4-5 copies in your grip.

Be still, my Quetzal loving heart. Favorites deck

Light'em up, burn'em down. Love it.

Do you have econ problems if you don't land a siphon in the first few turns?

I vote for -1 Immo Script, +1 Trope! :)

@PureFlight I actually don't manage to land Siphon often - I think that lends itself to my plan. My ideal Apocalypse turn should start with Siphon to soften the Corp up. I originally included Run Amok and Political Graffiti to add onto the Apocalypse power turn, but they've been traded for Fear the Masses (and honestly, those 6 slots are quite fluid; replace them with whatever you need the most). Also, once they see AS, they'll protect HQ more often post Apocalypse; that probably hurts my Fear The Masses plan. Might swap them for Keyhole / Medium / Inject.

Also, it helps that there aren't too many expenses other than Eater and DDoS, so one Day Job often provides most of the fuel needed to get that first Siphon in.

@esutter479 I think I only omitted it due to it not being immediately usable pre-Apocalypse, and due to the fact that one would want 2 or more in their Stack (and while this deck is rather flexible, choices are still hard to make!)

I LOVE that Hacktivist Meeting stays in play after Apocalypse. Makes Jackson Howard a liability at times.

I'm intrigued by the choice of Quetzal here. Might Val allow you to blackmail into remotes when you can't blast it to pieces and enable the Apocalypse when you can't?

I've seen maybe 3 Barriers in about 10 games, and won at least 7 of them. I think Quetzal has some merit, here. :D

This deck is very fun :) I'm going to switch it to Val, add 3 x Blackmail, 3 x Inject (goes nicely with Making an Entrance), and a Rebirth so could change to Quetzal or even E Kim if needed later - drop a couple of FtM and/or the Knifeds to make room - terrible ideas?

@2sj I tried out Val, and it turns out she's pretty legit with this build! Can't believe the win rate, so far. 10 / 13 games (give or take), the losses being to a lucky ABT, Hostile Infrastructure and FA.
