This is just a simple update to Nisei Standard. If you must have an AI breaker, I'd swap the 3rd Clone Chip for an Atman. Hostage helps you find DJ Liza :)

which programs do you trash with cold read?

Love to see this! Really happy to be saving influence and install costs with the Corroder over the Paperclip.

I haven't been playing much myself so it is great for me to see a deck I like being retuned to the new format.

@lazychef13 scumhooligan's experience with the deck may be different, but this is how I've been playing the Cold Reads:

Typically you don't trash anything with Cold Read and you just don't use programs on Cold Read runs. You can use the credits to trash an expensive asset, fetch a program with Self-Modifying Code or Clone Chip, all while building up credits on Net Mercur.

In late game, you can use Cloaks during a Cold Read run to make them eligible trashing targets.

@lazychef13 Exactly what @Sanjay said about Cold Read. I typically use it as a mini-stimhack to get out a breaker or trash an asset like an early jinja or jeeves. In mid/late game you can use it to charge a remote relying on clone chip to recover from the program trash as necessary.

okay cool, i see it now. i was just wondering, cause i have very much fun with a very close build to yours. just with crowdfundings instead of hot pursuit and 3 real stimhacks + film critic instead of strike. i will definitely look into cold read now

Just to add to the cold read thing; you can always just trash a cloak to it if you really need to use programs and don't want to lose breakers during it. Taking creds off cloak counts as using it.

Why doesn't Gebrselassie see any play in Stealth decks? Seems like it would be a huge boon in case you run into a glacier deck and only costs 1 real credit and an extra click to put it on an icebreaker (and can be moved depending on how the server is built up).

@CookerI do like Gebrselassie... it's simply not in this build to save a deck slot. If I were to bring it in, I'd probably cut a Cold Read.
