This list is a new spin on horrible Government Takeover decks. Instead of durdling until you eventually find it, this list uses red planet couriers to score a big atlas, and then uses those atlas tokens to take over the Government soon after. This makes this deck a lot more consistent and faster because now you have 4 agendas that you are happy to score with red planet, and your plan can't get messed up by the Government Takeover hiding in the bottom half of your deck.
Notable differences to the War of the Worlds list are also dedication ceremonies and a reconstruction contract because you no longer win the game when you play red planet couriers, and you can either score the Takeover with a big reconstruction contract or you can use dedication ceremony to bring all your advanceable ICE back to full strength. For this, we also included a red level clearance and preemptive action. Having Atlas tokens is also great just for value to get mass coommercialisation, and you can actually risk that agenda in a remote to get a cheesy red planet couriers.
A notable combo which is feasible with sufficient Atlas counters that came up a lot is using triple dedication ceremony, reconstruction contract and red level clearance to score a Government Takeover.
The ICE suite could be improved by playing mausolus and playing fewer pharos/colossus. However, I hope the Standard Ban List teams bans this deck, because it is really horrible to play against and boils down to "can the runner lucksack the Government Takeover".
Shoutout to Aki, for organizing such a huge store championship, and heinzel and lostgeek for coming up with good/horrible includes for this deck and extensively testing it with me
