Few months ago, I have tried to build Hyoubu deck. And I have discovered same thing as everyone else. Palana does everything better. So currently I'm playing this deck with Palana (and with few minor changes), but for lockdown tournament, I went back to original idea and used Hyoubu as ID.
How to play:
You trigger Hyoubu ID effect on your turn by Public Health Portal and sometimes on runner turn by Engram Flush. Batty is great on your scoring remote, forcing ETR. Or if your PSI game is strong, you can double PSI for Chetana second sub.
It has some weaknesses:
Non-lockdown Palana version plays Obokata Protocol with Data Loops instead of Bacterial, Drafter and Tyr. Combined with Genetics Pavilion, Obokata steal almost guarantee Punitive kill. And Personalized Portal to trigger Palana on corp turn for even more credits.
