Leadership is a deck that is designed to more directly lead the Runner into accessing the cards that we select via Shiro, Inazuma, and Susanoo-No-Mikoto. This is a deck that has been brewing in my mind for a few days now, and I decided to put it out there to weigh the concept. While the deck is built for the Harmony Medtech ID, it really wants the Jinteki flavor of Chronos Protocol: Selective Mind-mapping. Since we don't know what the vote will select, I'm not bothering to build a Mind-mapping build until after the vote is done.
This deck is a very odd Jinteki Flatline that revolves around the use of Susanoo-No-Mikoto and Shiro to force trap damage onto the Runner. This is still very shaky as I need to evaluate the economy and card draw in the current build before I start cutting cards for a more solid win condition via Ronin/Neural EMP/Scorched Earth/Punitive Counterstrike.
Reduce the Runner hand via Chairman Hiro or landing Komainu, and then utilize Shiro's effect to force a Runner access of a trap from R&D for a flatline.
Utilize Shiro and an R&D run (possibly launched from Bullfrog) to pursuade the Runner to access multiple traps in R&D.
Load the Runner down with Shi.Kyu and flatline via Philotic Entanglement.
The economy is a mixed bag employing Celebrity Gift with Blue Level Clearance and Green Level Clearance for work compression. Profiteering is also present, but will likely be an early replacement as it was only included to allow for Philotic Entanglement.
The Agenda selection was made to offer a low Agenda density in the deck. Unfortunately, 1 Executive Retreat was cut to provide room for Philotic Entanglement with Profiteering only included to bring Agenda Points to the necessary levels.
Except for Chairman Hiro, all assets are of the trap variety. Shi.Kyu is the only non-R&D triggering trap and was included for it's utility purposes. I've been aching to use Chairman Hiro in a deck, and borrowed the concept of utilizing 3 Agenda Point cards with Harmony Medtech from rpgdmcash's Jinteki Matchpoint series of decks to mollify the trash risk inherent with Chairman Hiro. In addition, Chairman Hiro combos with Philotic Entanglement if he is trashed.
Caprice Nisei was included as a second layer of protection for Chairman Hiro.
Precognition is the only non-Economy operation included in this deck, and is present to assist Shiro while potentially hiding Agendas from Runner access.
The ICE is intentionally porous as we want the Runner to access cards and additional ICE in this build. Hive is present as protection for Chairman Hiro. Susanoo-No-Mikoto is a Phase 2/3 event to guide the Runner into an Archive that is hopefully full of Shi.Kyu and Shock!.
There is still a lot of directions that Leadership can move into, but I need time to properly test this initial build to determine the strongest growth. Revisions have included Tori Hanzo possibly with Hokusai Grid, utilizing Jinteki Replicating Perfection, and more damage oriented ICE. As mentioned above, the next big step for Leadership is to determine what can be cut to add in direct damage for a stronger finishing flatline.
