Body Parts and Things That Go On Body Parts

Downfall printed two new cards in the "draw cards and do stuff" mode! So I've got to revisit this ridiculous archetype. As a bonus, here is a fun and mildly-thematic write-up.

The Workout Plan

First things first: put your Glove on. Build up a pile of money and threaten rush attempts with your Leg and Hand strength. Put on your Fancy Hat and try to get 4 points with Bullshit Indexing. Camp the remote while you build up for more R&D steals. Wiggle your Future Fingers at the last possible moment-- but if you suspect Ark Lockdown or Chronos Project it can be worth firing as soon as you have Comet + a pseudo-AI out.

Other card choices

  • Super-Head is good at helping you pile up events for efficient play, stealing Obokata protocol, absorbing a stunning amount of meat damage, or defusing Complete Image combos. It also makes it easier to play HHHNGH Faaaaace in match-ups where that is otherwise a death sentence.
  • Face helps to smooth out your income if you don't get an early mitten or for turns where you want to draw before you play your first event.
  • Cool Makeup and Peace in Our Time help for games where you have to durdle a little while.

Non-Thematic notes

  • I rarely install Na'Not'K. It might be better as a Deus X or for more pseudo-AI support (Pelangi, additional copies of breakers/SMC, or Cerberus "Lady" H1 to augment Laamb and because she is a nice doggy).
  • Modded only has 6 full-value targets total, and really only 3 once you have Comet down. The main advantage that it brings to the table is being able to use the comet click to install a card (with the discount being a secondary consideration). That is sometimes important but probably doesn't justify the slot, especially since you can't clear Cache between modded and Spec Work if you are using comet.
  • When I have a spare influence and a spare slot, I normally add a Stimhack or Utopia Shard. I'd lean towards shard at the moment as this deck doesn't have any direct HQ pressure otherwise and it helps to tank combo-based decks.

Whistleblower actually justifies its influence with Insight for 1 inf.

@Grimwalker good call. I've been trying some changes based on Armored Ascetic's modifications and notes and that gave me some slots. I haven't tested enough with it to say for sure, but I really like Whistleblower so far.
