[3rd @ SOCRX] Don't play by the rules

enkoder 310

This was my corp during the 10th Stimhack Online Cache Refresh (SOCRX). There were 59 players(!), I got 12th in swiss and 3rd in the cut. The carpool is Sys Core, D&D (chosen big box), R&R, and the Lunar cycle. Super fun tourney and I had a blast! Thanks to @sanjay for running a wonderful tournament.

I am pretty proud how this deck turned out. The meta is very much favored for the runner so I knew I needed to not play by the rules. I started with GFI as my restricted but then pivoted to Mogo once I realized that my ice was basically irrelevant. There's no clot in this meta so if I could FA there was nothing stopping me. The lines are super fun, get money, push 5/3s behind Mogo or FA them with Game Changer. Even with a runner slotting 2x Data Dealer you can still score out using the legendary Mother Goddess and killing the data dealer with Under the Bus. Money doesn't matter and my ice is a joke so it's lovely to see a runner building a board state installing breakers as I score out.

This deck is ultimately weak to Leela, Data Dealer, and a knowledge pilot that knows my deck ahead of time. Longi absolutely had my number in the cut which knocked me out. I had a fantastic experience and highly recommend everyone to come out and play in SOCR11!

Hey man, once more I salute to this deck! I did not know your deck beforehand but I was prepared for the News Team and sloted Data Dealer. Now when I see the ice suite, I indeed feel as a fool remembering me installing all the breakers during game. Luckily Leela proved to be a natural antidote for this deck. Looking forward to facing you in next socr tournament.

My preliminary testing with MoGo builds before SOCRX started were that they had a huge Shaper (Lat was super popular!) weakness in Pelangi.

Did you find that a problem at all through the tournament or did you only have Leelas in your path?

Thanks @Longi best of luck in the finals!

``@BlackCherries`in the cut I only faced Leela's but in swiss I faced a few Late. It's generally fine if they can break mogo with Pelangi. Fake 5/3s with Domestic Sleepers, Jane news teams, and FA the rest.
