Trouble Will Fairchild Me - I Need My Grid

SeeHearType 345

This is the latest iteration of my Next rush deck, I tried a build more similar to the old High Violet build at Manchester SC's it did ok but I found the tepid ice and lack of hunter seeker pulled the power of the deck down too much (the fact Jinja Grid wasn't legal hurt it further). So I decided to that Jinja Grid was enough of an econ and tempo boost along side having to pitch less ice due to clearance over draw I could run beefier ice.

I switched to Fairchild 3.0 for my restricted and Ikawah Projects as my 5/3. This left me with 3 influence after ditching food and reshuffling my ice and I really needed to get to bed so Sandstorm got included as I guessed it was fun with FC3 and Ikawah (It turns out it makes stimhack runs really sad too!)

The deck does what it always did but feels rich enough to afford the Seidrs and FC3's consistently, I'd consider cutting the Celebrity Gift, Medical Fundraiser would probably work if you feel the need the econ, IPO is probably ok but between UVC and VLC I think you don't really want a terminal in that slot.

Sandstorm should probably go but it's fun and you get to do the bit from the Darude song when you rez it, which is something else to think about before cutting it.

Go fast, protect HQ a little more than you think you need to and R&D a little less than you think you should, if you wanna play rush and don't want to make the Maxx players sad with Skorp then it might be worth giving it a try, remember a 2 ice starting hand in Next is still pretty damn good. Also if you get the choice score Corporate sales team over Vitruvius they probably can't steal it anyway so don't worry about telegraphing that it's agenda.

Awesome. Thanks for the update to the list (and for the National reference in the name)! How many turns are you taking to score out with this version?

Some things I've been trying in this archetype are Jua and Navi Mumbai City Grid to slow down breaker installs.

@josephlaizureJua and Navi are probably worth testing although not sure you want 2 types of grid and it's hard not to take Jinja tbh. Jua is interesting not had a chance to test it yet, this iteration of the deck was fairly untested and I think there's a fair bit of room for fine tuning, the only downside is it's an ice you don't want to see in your opening hand, let me know how it goes either way. (Also glad someone enjoyed my ham fisted National reference)

@emilyspineThanks, I probably need to work more meme's into the write up but was hoping for that sweet sweet Pavlovian like :D

@josephlaizureI've not tested it as much as the older version but with Jinja it's probably as fast or faster than the old version so 7-11 is pretty feasible, Navi is interesting but I'm not sure if you want multiple grids that both want to go in your remote and it's hard to justify anything over Jinja. Jua may well be worth a slot or two the only downside is you really don't want it in your opening hand. The deck was kind of thrown together based on my experiences with the old build so I think there's a lot of room for tuning the list, let me know how it goes either way. (I'm also glad someone enjoyed my ham fisted National reference!)

@emilyspineThanks! I should probably include more sweet memes in my write up but was secretly hoping for the rare but delicious Pavlovian like.
