Los Emergente 1.1

GcFlash 156

v1.1

[Insert clever gif here]

I made a few changes, mostly I found that I was drawing a lot early game looking for parts and really hated giving the Corp 5 credits with Peace in Our Time.

So that meant I could squeeze in a Paperclip for Emergent Creativity value; Easy Mark is mostly the sort of cash you need to install stuff from the The Supplier; Symmetrical Visage triggers after install unlike Earthrise Hotel plus its one more helpful draw card; 2x Same Old Thing is great for Emergent Creativity even if it costs you 3 clicks, or any other event you really need... I mean I did pay 5 influence a pop an extra click is nothing. Honestly I'd play 3x Emergent Creativity if it weren't that you need to play Film Critic.

By the same note as Peace in Our Time, I didn't want to go with Fisk Investment Seminar because early game that will accelerate the corp and maybe let them rush out, before you get going.

I didn't find Hernando Cortez to be of much value, the corp is either not rezzing ice or they have little to no money anyway. Leave No Trace is a great card to power back up your combo, so Same Old Thing is helpful as a back up... if you didn't burn them creatively.


V 1.0

I watched Andrej from the Metropole Grid play the deck that I have based this around. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7ARDImv1R4s about 1:18:00 in.

There was a load of influence being spent on Paige Piper and I though why not blow more in to tutoring rather deck thinning.

It's always a pain getting all the bits you need when you need them in the Zamba, GPI Net Tap, Rubicon Switch & Aumakua build, with Emergent Creativity not only are you able to tutor but those dead draws become a discount.

I would love to have a Paperclip for even more synergy with Emergent Creativity, but that would mean cutting the Peace in Our Time and there just isn't a good replacement early econ card, for the moment.

Why both The Supplier and Career Fair? Do you find you need that much discount if you're using Emergent to tutor out your pieces for GPI/Zamba combo? I love the idea of Emergent but it's so influence heavy.

Yes both are actually handy, you really want career fair to slap down Earthrise Hotel and Daily Casts, but The Supplier gives a little more consistency to your economy and tempo.

Honestly it's the best 10 influence I have spent in a deck, without them you are languishing waiting for bits of your combo especially as this really wants 2 or 3 GPI Net Tap. Seriously once you try it you will wonder why people play credit kitting or special order.

Though if you did drop The Supplier I'd go for a wee cheeky combo of HQ Interface to sacrifice to Emergent Creativity, as it basically will count as what ever other bit of hardware your missing and some multi access if you need it.

So a bit late on this but is there any reason you need to play emergent over say 3x Tyson observatory? You'd get 4 inf back and you're already on the supplier anyway. Then you can drop down to 2x zamba and Rubicon. The only thing you can't tutor for is turtle which you can order for.

Hi @Manadog for me Tyson Observatory is too time consuming, it takes a click and two credits to install the resource, two clicks to tutor the card and another to install it. Emergent Creativity can be used on its own as a two click two credit tutor or if you have a disposable bit of hardware or program you get a discount on the program or hardware you do need too! It's honestly infinitely better in practice than Tyson Observatory if you aren't having to import many cards. It also isn't hit by Scarcity of Resources, which can further impact the set up time. Same old thing for Emergent Creativity is just as quick as Tyson Observatory and you can maybe get a cheeky discount.

The only major change I would want to make to the deck is a better Econ card than Easy Mark but influence is super tight and it does just well enough to get you set up and exposing ice.

You can ignore the two credits obviously if you put Tyson Observatory on The Supplier, but then you have to wait another turn to use it.
