Revised Core Teaching Deck: Runner L1

InfiniteNutshell 550

This is the first deck I give new players when teaching the game. I play the Weyland teaching deck, so the matchup uses only a subset of the rules: there's no need to explain tags, traces, or damage. There are also only a couple of viruses, so the purge mechanic can be explained after the game has gotten underway. All you need is the basics of runs and servers, ice and icebreakers, and economy.

After the first game, I let the new player decide where to go next: more games with the same matchup, switch sides, play a more complicated Runner deck (Reina), or play against a different type of Corp deck (Jinteki).

These are all great and very useful for those of us who are eager to start demoing the new Core set before it even comes out. Thank you!

Thanks for this. I copied your decks and converted them slightly to use the Revised Core versions of the cards. I noticed though, while trying to build it that it requires at least 2x Revised Core sets? Mr Li, and HQ Interface specifically (maybe more) only have 1 copy in a set

Thanks for this. I made a copy of them and modified them to use the Revised Core version of the cards. I noticed though, while trying to actually build them, that the deck does require more than one Core Set to build. Mr Li and HQ Interface specifically (there may be more) only come with 1 copy in the set.

Thanks for this. I made a copy and made the cards use the Revised Core versions. It may be worth mentioning though, (not obvious to me first looking as a noob) that the decks require multiple Core sets to complete and many of the cards that specify multiple copies only come in singles in the Revised Core
