2nd at Aki's birthday / York Regional 2019
2-1 in Swiss, and 3-0 in the cut.
@paulyg on Blue Sun in round 5, in an absolutely bonkers game where we both drew “the nuts”.
Wins in the swiss were a very tense game against Argus (as they should be!), and a game against Data Loop Palana where I almost killed myself by bypassing an Anansi with Inside Job.
Won 3 games in the cut where all 3 corps were flooded (although some were more flooded than others). Also despite me putting my thumb over the Punitive Counterstrike when reading
@rotage SportsMetal deck list, and despite tilting myself against Johnny's Data Loop Palana.
I think that this is almost a carbon copy of the reg 419 that criminal master
@RotomAppliance has been playing, with one or two tech cards swapped out to suit my more aggressive tendencies. 46th card would be Same Old Thing.
Miss Bones did absolutely nothing for me on the day, but then again I didn’t face any Asset spam. In testing, Miss Bones has been “good” against glacier decks with Crisium or Jinja City Grid, and “MVP” against asset spam. Dropping to one seems a bit pointless, but you could easily cut her completely and just spend time learning your asset spam matchups.
Clone Chip helps against Marcus Batty style rigshooters, and careless net damage hits, but it’s a security blanket - and can definitely be cut.
Let the corp set the tempo, but respond accordingly. Pay attention to what the corp is doing, figure out why they are doing it, and apply pressure where and when it’s most uncomfortable for them. Basically, play good Netrunner!
If the corp goes too fast, apply pressure with Aumakua, or Engolo + Inside Job. If the corp is playing more slowly, let Rezeki tick, click Kati Jones, and slow the game down even more with Corporate "Grant".
Inside Job is also a secret econ denial card. With Falsified Credentials you can be sure that what you are contesting is an agenda, and even if you can’t get in the Corp still has to rez multiple ICE. Follow up with a Diversion of Funds (easily enabled with Engolo) and the Corp will be left way out of position.
Definitely my favourite runner deck at the moment, makes for some really good games. I fully expect engolo to be restricted as part of MWL 3.4.
@Blonde Haired Hacker Girl for organising yet another amazing event, full of incredible prize support, and incredible people!
And thanks to
@RotomAppliance for baking some delicious cakes - they were much appreciated after a day of eating almost nothing but Belvita breakfast biscuits.
