Based on Kalavouna's Undecodable deck. (https://netrunnerdb.com/en/decklist/36895/undecodable-3-0)
I've been playing Jinteki as long as I have been playing the game, mainly PE. A few weeks ago I discovered this ID. After a number of matches, I've decided to post my list for critique. This list is a lot more of a glaciery build than Kalavouna's list, using the ID and rig destruction to disrupt the runner long enough to score out. The Criminal matchup is pretty good due to the limited recursion in most criminal decks. The shaper match-up is a not too great either, and relies mainly on score out quickly, and slowing them down by hitting the smc's and rig.
TLDR: Based off of Kalavouna's Undecodable 3.0 decklist and has a weaker match-up against anarchs, is ok against shapers, and good against criminal.
Main Issues I find are too little econ, agenda flood, and Power Shutdown mishaps. Rumor Mill really makes me sad :(
Any and all thoughts are appreciated. I really want to make this deck work, as I think the ID is really powerful and underrated.
-HoK; Main source of consistent net damage in the deck on the runner's turn -Neural EMP: Net damage on my turn -Salem's: Not really net damage but is a good way to get multiple cards out of hand, a pseudo net damage, or just an ability to look at their hand -Chrysallis: Flex slot here to serve as additional ice and occasional net damage. Used to be shock but was having troubles with amount of ice -Swordsman: Also good at killing fausts and eaters in anarch, and atman in shaper
-Ichi 1.0: Used to be Archer, but I never really wanted to forfeit any agendas. Ichi serves a similar function, although unlike Archer it can be clicked through to save their rig. -Cobra: great in this deck, triggers rig destruction and hand destruction particularily after a batty kills their breaker -Power Shutdown: A surprising all-star and also big hinderance. Can really mess up their plans, or can give them the win. I wouldn't replace it with anything else. -Batty: Combos with Cobra or Ichi to trash programs and make things painful for the runner
-Hedge, Celebrity Gift, Pop-up, Sales Team, Targeted Marketing. I tend to still have some money issues most games. Targeted Marketing helps with it occasionally, but mainly functions as a deterrent against key cards.
-Baku, Lotus Field: Hard ETR ice that happens to be great against parasite.
-Quandary: Cheap ETR ice that can't be paper-clipped.
-Jackson: You know him, you love him, all bow down to worship the great and powerful JH. Also critical for tucking away power shutdown'd agendas. -Caprice: A standard Jinteki glacier powerhouse -Cyberdex: New addition against medium, datasucker, and other stuff. Flexible slot
I'm open to any and all suggestions. Give it a try, its a whole lot of fun!
