Spacebomb - 6th at Tampere GNK 24/9/22

Buppu2099 55

Mission Statement:
The goal of this deck is to murder the runner. This deck does not win by scoring. The agendas in this deck are there to be eaten by ice, to frustrate the runner and to speed up their turns so you can wrap up the game in a variety of ways.

Pro's
Stressed about scoring? No more! Don't bother unless the runner is too scared to run. This deck is simple, straight-forward, glacier construction combined with all the proper money cards.
This deck hopes to shorten the playtime and give you the chance to sit back and relax. Give your brain some rest and coffee up for the next round of the tournament.

Con's
Plenty. The Clearinghouse is there to make the runner panic and waste resources running it, but it dies very easy to the usual misery. No worries, jank it back from the dump while the runner enjoys their bread and circuses. Also, the deck is not good at scoring. But the game won't last long enough to worry about that.

Card Choices
A note on some cards:

News Team is underappreciated. It is always funny. Is a good trigger for a medium-sized tilt when encountered once. Becomes funnier when trashed. Some runners forget about the news team in archives and blunder into them again for a double tilt.

Distract the Masses is there as a replacement for Preemptive Action. If anyone has a suggestion for a better alternative I love to hear it. There to shuffle back the exploded Clearinghouse, BOOM! and whatever weapons you need to finish the game.

Drafter Enables bigger glaciers and allows you to dump ice in the archives.

Any suggestion to improve this deck is most welcome.

Results after the tournament

My runner deck was Metabreaker Wu. Though the deck is good, it turned into mulch in my hands. I should have practiced that deck more, thankfully other players were very helpful in pointing out the neat tricks hidden in that deck.

Against 419 Lost big time. No ice after a mulligan led to a very effective Diversion of Funds. This made me a permanent resident of Tilt city for the rest of the game. 419's ability is not good when I try to weasle out Ice Wall's and pretend it makes a glacier. Thankfully the match was over soon, so at least that part of my deck works great!

Against Hoshiko Shiro: Untold Protagonist Got close to closing the game with a BOOM!, but I had a tough time thinking up a solution to the Citadel Sanctuary on the table. RTSA deftly pilfered the R&D and won the game. Great game, I learned a lot from this matchup.

Against Esâ Afontov: Eco-Insurrectionist A close game, the sabotage adds up after a while and plenty of essential pieces were knocked out from the deck. With much pain and effort I managed to get a Clearinghouse going in the remote server and this time I actually remembered the ability of my ID. Flipping it and taxing the runner makes a difference. It proved too expensive and the Clearinghouse exploded. Thanks Ebesan for that game. His PE deck completely eroded my runner deck.

Thanks to Lem, RTsa, ozzi, aksu, sheriley and Ebesan for the great day. I saw some spectacular skateboard tricks and everyone was very patient and helpful when I flaked or forgot to read a card before playing it. Looking forward to the next tournament.

Thanks for the suggestion. Perhaps I should cut the Wake Up Call in exchange for Economic Warfare.
