Fed up with runner dominance? Whizzard making you sad? I say roll the dice and play the variance. Throw some potatoes at your opponent and see what sticks. Prison doesnt work these days with so much whizz and slums (even Archives Interface), making assets to hard to protect so this is a normal deck thats more turtle style. Shout outs to @lpoulter who came up with the shell, and @rotomappliance for refining it in testing.
This deck is actually pretty decent, and I brought it because in testing it has a favourable reg Whizzard matchup, particular as most folk (including myself) have dropped Strikes in favour of 2 Aarons.
It should be pretty self explanatory what to do, but I make a few key points here.
Ark Lockdown: Your primary targets are Black Orchestra, Parasites, Levy, Siphon depending on what deck you are playing against. Lotus Field: Is whizzards weak spot, rush an early HoK behind this or use it to score out/protect RnD if you can snipe the Black Orc. Be careful not to rez code gates if you see Black Orc in the bin. Kakugo: "Its weak to parasite". Sure it is, but the thing is you mill half their deck so either the parasites are in the bin, or the deja are, you have nice synergy between Kakugo/friends/ark lockdown. Pre-emptive: Primary targets are your Neurals and Econ.
Playstyle: Keep high on money, a lot of turns will be "take 3, pass". You need to be able to rez ICE, threaten snare, pay for neurals/friends, score HoK. None of this is cheap.
Highlight of the day: My opener is ICE ICE hedge and Ben Ni, playing Siphon Whiz plays Gamble, Laundry Eater Siphon as his first turn. I rez Kakugo, and he realises that if he takes my money he dies to neural next turn and jacks out.
