[SOCR5] Rush Skorpios - 4th Place

mbzrl 144

This is the deck I used to get 4th place in the 5th Stimhack Online Cache Refresh tournament. Its final record was 5-3, beating Alice, Sunny, Silhouette, Kit, and Steve; and losing to Kit, Steve, and Steve.

The idea is to make a 2 ice remote and drop cards in there every turn. Punitive and Audacity help close out the game (or win on turn 2 when Kit rips a GFI, I guess). Death and Taxes is really strong with the resilient agenda suite. Urban Renewal goes in the remote if you have nothing else, and either forces a run or gives a scoring window with Punitive, but you really don't want it ticking down if you can do something else with the remote.

I like to think that the sideboarding aspect of these tournaments caused my opponents to tech against rigshooting and play more cautiously, but I don't know how to measure that!

As always, I had a lot of fun competing with a ton of friendly opponents in some tense matches, and I'd recommend signing up for SOCR6 to anyone! It's a great way to try your hand at deckbuilding with new cards as they come out in a format with no clear best decks.

Thanks to all my opponents for the fun games, and to @FightingWalloon for hosting.
