🔥Faust Quetzal 🔥
TLDR: Play Faust, Parasite ice, and abuse e3 Feedback Implants with Faust, Quetzal, D4v1d, and Bioroid ice. Then, do it all over again with that beautiful Shaper recursion. #shaperforlife
Ok, so Quetzal (especially with the lack of inclusion of Account Siphon) was an odd choice in a bleak world powerfully terrorized by 'Hate Bear' Val and Whizzard decks, but a friend and I brewed up this storm to have answers to the most common Corps to beat:
RP glacier & ETF glacier = burn their house down with Parasites! Dig through the rubble with D4v1d and Kati Jones.
NEH Butchershop & NEH Blitz = slow the Corp down with Clot, deep Medium dig, and Plascrete Carapace to shield you from Scorched Earth operations.
Blue Sun Vegan & Blue Sun Punitive Counterstrike = Quetzal, D4v1d, and e3 Feedback Implants severely punishes Blue Sun's Oversight AI attempts.
Anything else = Faust OP.
More on card choices, strategy, criticism/rebuttal:
Mulligan for Wyldside. Since this deck's economy is primarily grip management (Faust), it's your responsibility to know where your local Seedy club is.
Everything can be 'Food for Faust'. Want to include a janky card that may help you in that 1 situation you may find yourself in? DO IT, because a card = a card to Faust!.. Oooook... Maybe still think twice. Every card is still important - I just like to have fun! For a while this deck played a 1x Dorm Computer to steal those irritating cyber security Quantum Predictive Model kittys.
Against glacier decks, you must become fully cybernetic - sacrificing your grip to bash through servers stings significantly less when you're giving up your less-human parts. Don't feed Faust too quickly until you've received your e3 Feedback Implants and Brain Cage.
Against rushy decks, don't waste time with Kati Jones or becoming a more-cyber-you, and have a good reason for any other expenses that keep you from your Medium partys.
