Was ready for @Limes! 3-4 at Worlds 2020

Targets

During playtests, my main concerns were in order:

  1. Tablet Asa
  2. Titan that scores behind vanilla
  3. Beat iceless Sportsmetal
  4. Doing ok vs Jinteki glacier
  5. Not dying to CTM

So, I took @thebigunit3000's list, tweaked it to "beat" my targets as much as possible.

Card choices

  • Let's start with the Dealer in the room, this one is to get the 40-60% iceless Sports matchup to something close to 100%, I used it twice during the event, more details below.
  • Turntable -> 100% for Titan, could be cute in other matchups also helps with memory
  • 1x Pawnshop, I never missed the second one.
  • Kati Jones -> Jinteki Glacier. Actually Jinteki scores much faster than what Kati can output, so she'll have to go in future versions.
  • 2x Polop I really like this one as it is a counter to the best corp card: Rashida Jaheem. Against every corp, if you can trash 2-3 of them before they triggers, the game will be more in your favor! It's also great against RecoCo, La Costa, Crisium, Jeeves and Team Sponsorship. I didn't used them as often as I should have.
  • Odore -> Tour Guide
  • 1x Extra breaker -> to not being gear-checked to death as it often happen to me
  • 2x Imp -> One of the best runner card
  • Deuces Wild: very good against CTM, help with draw for other matchups, I often used it to expose ice to know which breaker I need to find for Apocalypse
  • I almost forgot Apocalypse which is the best way to deal with most corps, especially Asa

Rounds

Round 1 - @PowerBunz's Earth Station

  • I found my breakers early
  • PowerBunz struggled with econ
  • I stole an agenda from the remote
  • Trashed Crisium twice
  • Then proceeded with Apocalypse
  • Stargate the win

Round 2 - @wynalazca's CTM

Round 3 - @analyzechris's Asa

Round 4 - @doomrat's Pālanā

  • Got laser focus into Apoc which made me lose precious resources at the price of keeping the Apoc plan "hidden"
  • Got in the remote too late
  • Took the wrong line of ignoring the 2x adv remote to ensure enough econ for the Apoc that never came because that was the winning agenda

Round 5 - @enkoder's Asa

Round 6 - @Gunslinger's Asa

Round 7 - @branimated's Argus

Things to change

  • Remove Kati
  • I didn't expect RecoCo Asa, find a way to handle that, maybe another polop? Against them you can let 1x dedication go, but you have to kill it before they play the second one, Vitruvius with 0 agenda counters is fine! Maybe just practice and 2x polop is enough.
  • Adding Hippo back? They would really come handy against AgInfusion. The Apoc is barely possible otherwise.
