Here’s My version of the Bristol Sunny Deck that took me to 18th at the 70px Netscape Navigator SC last weekend.

During our testing sessions I often found I was throwing out Data Foldings being ‘the worst card in my hand’ as unless installing with a career fair or Gachapon the tempo hit was slowing me down to much in the early game.
Once they were out the Gachaphon targets had dropped to a point I wasn’t happy with and I also wanted a quicker way to find my White Hat’s and Boomerangs so I switched Gacha’s for Diesels.
Actually, very happy with this build – it went 2W – 3L although 1 loss due to a very poor piloting error from me in Round three makes me think the deck was defo worthy of at least a 3-2 in swiss.
Round 1 Loss Vs Jackmade on NWE Built to Last
We have some great tech against the Bristol built to last decks in the form of White Hat – turns out white hat is a pretty dead card when the Corp has 9 Atlas Tokens.
Round 2 Loss Vs Motion Blur on Palana –
A hard matchup in general for sunny (Anansi’s, etrs, ag ability etc), although one that wasn’t going too badly until I massively overexerted myself to get into a 4 Iced server only to find a void at the end allowing them to score a second sandbox. It was pretty much over at that point.
Round 3 Stupid Loss to Ghost00 on BoN (RPC Government Takeover deck).
Early knowledge of HQ let me know about the 2 Punitives in hand (not too worried, I was doing well for money) Found GlobalSec SC early and a few turns later made this awful turn.
*Click 1 – Globalsec – See the Government takeover on the top of R&D
*Click 2 - Run into R&D, Nexus-ing past an Akhet, losing 1 of the 2 white hats from hand to BoN, Steal the GT (for some insane reason I don’t use the 7 or 8 TTW for a big dig to win on that run – 1st stupid mistake)
*Click 3 – Click for a credit (I do not need this credit. WHY AM I CLICKING FOR A CREDIT?)
*Click 4 – White hat. See THREE punitives in hand and a hostile – Corp on 18c, I’m on 16c +3 link ☹
^^ Just the worst turn – so many opportunities for me to win, I turn I will not forget anytime soon
Round 4 Win vs Vesper on Bristol BtL
Always a pleasure to get to play against Vesper! – Good early money for me, an early nexus and eventually a White hat/TTW combo turn to sweep the GT from hand
Round 5 241 win vs Mr Buggles on NWE BtL
A 22 turn, 60 minute behemoth of a game (really lucky it was a 241), Mr buggles jammed an early atlas which I falsified but couldn’t get to that turn. Did mean he had to score out with no counters which made the rest of the game a constant to and fro of Globalsec, White hat and Spin Dr. For 2 turns the GT was sat in hand (I knew from seeing it off global sec, but unable to HQ for more than a single, and no threat of RPC at the time) Eventually it went back into R&D due to a Spin DR play and I just had to wait for it to come around again (about 6 ice on R&D by this point)
A real nail biter of a game and a very satisfying final victory – for sure the best game I played all day.
Big thanks to Rob (Mendax) for creating a ‘joke’ sunny deck that started the whole thing off and Ian (Algebraic) for the hours and hours of testing – and the last minute inclusion of Globalsec for Spombo/BtL matchups.
