I Got Market Forces 7 Times On Stream, AMA (4th APAC)

Jai 359

Beat Jinteki PE, Jinteki RH, lost to R+ in swiss

Beat Odol's AgInf, lost to iceprisma's R+ in cut

Corp was 40 card Neurospike Azmari

Boomerang is great for contesting turn 1 Rashidas/Dragos... as long as the ice isn't Funhouse

Only 1 Liberated Account, corps are tempoing you out a lot in this meta and you can't afford to sit around and click for 16 more than once in a game. Multiple times in testing I found myself ending games with 20+ creds on unused Libs (you still install them to get Patchwork value)

Stoneship Chart Rooms were originally Pinhole Threadings, but I decided to tech vs BOOM instead. Didn't end up seeing one the whole event. Alternatives are Diesel + second Liberated, Hunting Grounds + something. I'd probably still go with 2x Pinhole, having max ways to deal with Rashida/Drago is essential

DreamNet is amazing, that+ID is Wyldside Chronotype all over again, and Patchwork a) directly turns cards into money and b) lets you drop duplicates. Don't go below 3 copies

Steelskin Scarring is the other reason to run Patchwork, amazing tempo when you draw 2 clickless. If you have Patchwork out, don't overdraw your breakers unless you're digging for something, cards=money in this deck. You can even trash a breaker to pay for Dirty Laundry for maximum surprise factor on a 1st click run

You might be tempted to swap Stargate for The Twinning and play Multithreader/companions or whatever, don't do it, your breakers are garbo vs real ice, you need actual disruption and a real game-ending threat

Don't get Market Forces 7 times like I did

ABR kiddos
