Kit'èmmuort - Undefeated swiss italian national

I love shaper but i don't like playing else's lists.

So despite reaver-wu and apocolat are awesome, strong clever and super engaging decks I decided to go with Kit for some reasons.

1) I only love Kate and Chaos Theory more than Rielle. But Kate is dead, and CT isn't really an option...

2) I felt that Kit fits very good in this meta for her ability to threaten early remotes. This is important against R+ and sports/PD, forcing them to play less rushy and boosting your chance to slow them down enough to approach midgame where you are stronger.

3) Into the Depths becomes a really impressive cards along with rielle and boat, allowing you to quick setup your rig, especially the merit is enabling stargate very early (turn 3 mostly) while gaining an access and forcing the corp to rez an ice. Such click efficiency is very important in early game. This will often move corp's focus into protecting rnd leaving the remote accessible untill midgame.

The strategy is then simple: go for stargate-mad dash. Don't be afraid to trash bad ices and leave agendas for the corp to draw. This can help you a lot when sailing trough servers.

About the Rig: Engolo is both a backup decoder and a better option than Pelangi since the diffused virus hate, despite the cost and the MU usage. Doubling propellers was the last tweak made the night before the tournament. I wanted to be safe and not going out of steam during long games against multiple barriers. This could be a second telework.

This deck went undefeated against CTM, Prison R+ (some supernatural powers involved), Jinteki PE and Sportsmetal.

And this is pretty much all. Rielle is a predator ready to attack, and the corp knows and feel that. Use it at your advantage!

Thanks to everybody! Italian national has been a lot of fun!

What supernatural powers were needed to beat prison R+? I've got some time before UK Nats to get any supplies and sac a Rotage to whatever elder god I need to.

Well, i put my hand on the deck. Palm must be at 2 centimeter from the surface of the first card firmly looking into your opponent's eyes.

Declare out loud your intents. Mine was:

"I'm gonna cut the deck and you will be flooded of Dracos"

Then close your eyes, and try to sense draco presence in the deck. Visualising in your mind "Go Bananas" from LittleBig helps a lot into connecting your soul with Draco.

You will know how and when to cut in 20-30 seconds.

Watch your opponent astonished mulligan with 2 draco in hand and repeat the process step by step when he gives you the deck to cut. This time you don't want him to draw draco at all, and you will need "Hypnodance" from littlebig again.

He drew it eventually, but nothing can stop the power of the great ancient.

(btw, this really happened! Thanks to @wowarlock for the funny but skill intensive and tight game!)

Masterful play, turn 1 stargate against an unprotected R&D and a little woodoo magic were indeed the downfall of my R+
