Seeing SYNC do reasonably well at worlds was inspring, but I disagreed with the approach.
A setup with 3 Bellona 3 Degree mill and some amount of echo chambers is solid but it doesnt play into the IDs strength: The early HHN threat.
Sync has a great window early on in the game to score out agendas under the threat of HHN, but if all you are getting is agenda points the runner can sit back and relax until they have enough money to be safe.
The answer is simple, SYNC must be aggressive! Each score should accelerate our own play or slow down the runner.
This way we can free up the passive slots used for echo chamber and degree mill and turn them into pressure tools that synergize with our greatest strength.
To be able to close out games when a runner goes tagme we have our trusty BOOM! with consulting visit backup.
Our tripple economic warfare make it hard for the runner to stay safe against HHN early and give us 3 weyland cards at the same time.
Closed accounts to make our little fly a big threat and making it very uncomfortable in general to keep any amount of tags.
Preemptives to keep our boom threat alive if it gets trashed, but can naturally help with other things as well.
No room for a 3rd sweeps week unfortunately :)
Originally played casting call inspired by saans worlds deck:https://netrunnerdb.com/en/decklist/62104 But then sweeps week was brought back :D
Importing mausolus to enable consulting visit, but also because it is a damn good ice in SYNC.
Ideally ravens go on the remote to create a taxing hell where you eventually cannot run without getting tagged beyond belief.
In general the other ice goes on centrals as it protects better against tagme. The ice suite is designed to be taxing and cheap in general, keeping the runner out is not as important as draining credits without spending too much.
Thought I´d post as this meta now is drawing to a close and to me this was a little gem within it. Super fun to play dynamic NBN :)
