Agressive cat jumping every barrier and putting corp through the dance. Here, you'll get to 5 or 6 core damages in no time. Usually, on an average game, this deck will sabotage around 16 cards, which is a third of the corp deck.
Game plan : Sabotage 16+ cards, run often and pressure the corp.
Meta call for NZ national : Dr. Vientiane Keeling will be part of the competition. Was I right?
The event went list this for this deck :
Thanks to all my opponents for the fun games. Shoutout to nbkelly for judging and organizing the event, it was excellent.
You want to be very agressive here. As long as you do not have program and you are not against Jinteki, you can just facecheck with Bravado and Raindrops Cut Stone. Matryoshka will allow you to get a universal breaker early and with it, the ability to pressure the corp.
Ghosttongue is the best econ card here. If scored on turn 1, we have 23 targets for it. With card trashed from core damage, you should be able to use it 16+ times. Meaning it is a +14 card!
Once Begemot is on the board, it will immediately be almost never used, unless some barrier were rezzed early. This is because there is no corp that will rez ices that cost them between 3 and 6 to be broken for 1.
Zenit Chip JZ-2MJ is especially good in Esa because it draw back a card after installation, on top of the sabotage, making it hurt less.
Hush is super important. This program wins games! Every faction fears it. Jaguarundi and Loki in HB, half the good ice in NBN, Tatu-Bola and Anansi in Jinteki, Hortum and Pharos and other advanceable in Weyland. It cannot be understated how good this is. Especially against Ob Superheavy Logistics: Extract. Export. Excel.. Hafrún + Stavka will wreak your ability to facecheck ices.
If this deck is played in person, it is rather easy to sleeve, with all the 3x in the deck haha!
The style of play of this deck is rather reckless. In a tournament, it makes for shorter game. I hope you enjoy this also! Cheers!
