Want to start off by saying thanks to the guys at Critical Hit Games in St. Pete, Florida for hosting this small, 5 person tourney. Been going there for a few years now, and it's great fun every time they host events.
This deck went 2-1 on the day, helping me place first in a tourney filled with other Store Champ, ANRPC and Regional winners, including The Source's own Ve Herrman. Included the Fumiko as a shoutout to the Alcatraz build for RP that was popular, as I enjoyed making the TFPs and Voter Intimidations spiky.
Round 1: Faced off against Temujin Whizzard. He contests my board early, but no Slums, so I can recur with Friends and Jackson to keep him running, rather than setting up too hard. Eventually he runs on R&D with 2 cards in hand, 2 Street Peddlers down, and finds Chiyashi. No Paperclip or ICE destruction to be found, so dead runner. (1-0)
Round 2: Faced against Whizzard, this time Damonfork. Runner kept an opening hand with Liberated, Wyldside, Adjusted Chronotype, Slums and Dirty Laundry, so needless to say this was a rough game for me. Played 2 Voter Intimidations in one turn about 10 minutes in to hit Slums, but missed the Psi game both times, and I eventually bled enough points to lose. (1-1)
Round 3: Played against Ve Herrman who was on Aggro Andromeda. Desperado did a good job contesting assets early, but between ICEing the centrals tightly and breakers not showing up, the board got out of hand fast. I was able to clear both Employee Strikes by recurring Cerebral Static, which isn't fun against Andromeda, but had to be done. Fumiko made me happy this game, as I played a Voter Intimidation to remove a Turning Wheel with 6 tokens, and the meat damage hit an Aaron Marron that the runner had drawn on their last turn but couldn't play. Eventually the Runner conceded as Bio-Ethics wore down their deck. (2-1)
