This is the MaxX deck that I took to Euros 2018 together with my Jemison list. I added a second Stimhack the morning of the tournament; in testing I only played one. You can feel it's blasphemy for running 48 cards, but they get auto-trashed anyway, so it doesn't really matter that much.
At the morning of the tournament I still wasn't sure what to run. I had TheBigBoy's Reina, my own Smoke list and this MaxX list.
MaxX was usually doing OK and I expected a lot of NBN. I therefore went with two Femmes and a Retrieval Run. Luckily I didn't face any Skorpios throughout the tournament.
I strongly feel that a 1-off Slums is right. It beats ARES, CtM and Wake Up Call. And it ensures less recursion in many, grindy, Jinteki decks. It also works particularly well with Maw.
- Round 1 (2-0): win against Bastion from my own meta on PU. I grinded him to the last card in R&D, which also happened to be the last Obokata I needed. Otherwise he would be decked in two turns. The only game I Levy'd twice. I Rebirth'd to Omar at the end of the second run through my deck.
- Round 2 (4-0): win against Punitive Pālanā. His first Punitive hit an I've Had Worse and then I ran away money wise.
- Round 3 (5-1): win against a flooded Azmari.
- Round 4 (6-2): loss against TugtetguT's Moons. I think all 8 breakers were in the heap with a Blacklist on the board. I hate that card.
- Round 5 (8-2): win against Azmari. I had a very bad mull with almost no money cards. I went Deep Data Mining on turn 2 on an open R&D and lucked into 8 points in the first four cards.
- Round 6 (9-3): ID
- Round 7 (11-3): win against Highwire's Asa Group. I had all the good cards I needed to find 3 agendas in a relatively short period of time.
- Round 8 (12-4): ID
- In top 16 I lost in the fun bracket to percomis' Titan. It's the only game I feel I should've played very differently.
Overall, I feel the deck is great against NBN and most Jinteki. And most of the time not so great against Moons, Titan and obviously Skorpios.
