This deck is part of the third iteration of the Project CROW mini-campaign for beginners familiar with System Core 2019. It consists of three Runner and three Corp decks, that are built up over three steps. They start at the System Core 2019 with a few additions and end up with currently competitively viable decks that have placed well in tournaments.
With level 2, we introduce a new Shaper ID: Hayley Kaplan, the bread and butter of competitive Shaper play. While other Shaper IDs might have fun little quirks, Hayley provides powerful click compression for doing the things you already want to do anyways: Get your board set up.
To help you doing this even more quickly, we also gain another fun tool in our arsenal: Simulchip. In conjunction with Self-modifying Code, this allows you to very quickly set up all of your breakers at once, e.g., on a Stimhack run. Because of this added utility, we also change our sentry breaker to Ika. Once hosted on a sentry, this little breaker is very efficient, costed at 0 and with cheap abilities. Be careful though, as the Corp might overinstall their sentry to get rid of your squid friend. You should immediately use Simulchip here to get it back quickly.
Finally, we now have a single copy of a silver bullet against fast advance decks: Clot. This little program can be used to stop the Corp from winning the game right under your nose. Use it together with a combination of Self-modifying Code, Simulchip and your ID ability to get it out at instant speed from stack, heap, or grip respectively, once the Corp has installed and advanced an agenda on the board.
