This deck was derived from AwesomeOosh's Palana Grail: https://netrunnerdb.com/en/decklist/40625/palana-grail-upgrade-spam-1st-place-wasteland-games-sc-atl.
My last two SCs, I played Railgun as my corp which is definitely fun and pretty solid right now, but I wanted to try and win with some regular glacier build. Saw this Palana deck and decided to give it a go. Turns out it was a pretty rough day, and I had to win way too many psi games to pull out the wins I needed. On the day it went 3-2.
Round 1 was a win against a newer player on Smoke. He made some aggressive runs on R&D which result in Batty rig trashes which sealed the game pretty early.
Round 2 was a loss against Whizzard which ended quickly as half of my first 15 cards drawn were agendas.
Round 3 was a loss facing Geist where I just tried to rush out and got to 5 points before getting totally locked out.
Round 4 was a win up against a Leela running gingerbread and panchachachas....with corporate scandals and blackmail/SOT, so I had to win like 10 psi games and was 1 card away from milling myself.
Only game in the cut was in the winner's bracket final against the same Leela from round 4. I knew better what to expect, but the exact thing happened. Ended up winning with no cards in R&D, but snuck out the win behind a caprice and 2 battys.
Psi games are too stressful even though I think I did well with them. Definitely going to switch back to Railgun or something else come Regional season.
