This is an updated version of my Mushin Biotech deck which I won Philippine nationals with. While I didn't make the second day, I was happy getting knocked out by a fellow Biotech player, Josh Q @formerteen. It was also crazy that as we were starting our game 7 of day 1b, beside us was yet another Biotech player, Robby @allofthemarbles. We all had different takes on the ID and I think all very viable in the current meta.
Mini Tournament Write Up:
Game 1 - First round bye. I had a lovely relaxing game and chat with Patrick @rotomappliance
Game 2 - Got matched against Patrick. He put down a No One Home and a Feedback Filter about 3 turns in. From there it was just careful running on his part which then won him the game.
Game 3 - John from Pittsburgh playing freedom. He had a few great accesses early in the game getting rid of both and archived memories and a mushin with Kumalo's ability. I secured centrals and then he ran a Snare! on R&D and flat lined.
Game 4 - Eliot from Denver playing Hayley. Mid-Game I had two things with four advancement counters on them in play. One was a Show of Force, the other was a Ronin. On his last click, he did Hayley things and installed two resources putting him down to 4 cards. That was all it took.
Game 5 - Josh from Milwaukee. At some point mid game, he went down to 4 cards in hand. This time it was bio-ethics, bio-ethics and a 4 advanced Ronin.
Game 6 - Dan from Toronto. I lost with Biotech here drawing 5 agendas out of 7 in the first 14 cards.
Game 7 - forfeited after Josh's Biotech murdered my Maxx. I was happy to get eliminated by a fellow Biotech enthusiast and it was great to see him pilot that deck to top 16!
I'm happy I made the long trip to Minneapolis and am satisfied with where I finished the tournament. 3 of my 6 opponents made it to top 16 and they were all an absolute pleasure to play against. It was also a really good experience meeting members of the community, and, as mentioned by most, everyone was just so damn friendly. Moving forward, I hope that there would be more local events or even regional Asian events.
Final shout out to the BC crew for being great airbnb pals!
