Shizuku 419

EDIT: The updated version is here

Sake enthusiasts will be familiar with the deck's name. "Shizuku" sake, which translated to "drip" sake, is filtered by hanging the fermented beverage in cotton bags to allow the sake to slowly drip, separating the sake from the rice solids by gravity alone. It is a tedious process, but the Toji's (brewer's) patience is rewarded with a fine sake free of any bitterness or harshness.

So, as the name suggests, the deck is about winning by patiently "out-dripping" your opponent. It does this in a few ways:

Drip credits with PAD Tap, Rezeki, and Maemi

Drip credits away from your opponent with 419, Corporate Grant, Amina and Diversion of Funds

Drip clicks with Swift

Drip good cards into your hand and bad cards away with Class Act

Keep up the pressure with Same Old Thing to recur power cards life DoF, Stimhack, Embezzle and Grant

The game plan is to get your Drips dripping and keep it up. Be sure everything on the board triggers once per turn. An ideal turn goes like this: Gain two from Rezeki. Click to draw or use Deuces to trigger Class Act. Play a run event on R&D or HQ to trigger Maemi, Swift, Amina and Turning Wheel all at once. Install to trigger Grant. Your choice for your last one or two clicks.

Finally, have a sip of a chilled Shizuku Junmai Daiginjo, smile, then pass turn.

I've been playing this deck with -1 Maemi -1 Stimhack and +1 Trickser Taka and +1 Daily Casts. While cutting stimhack feels bad, adding more drip feels good!
