Our party animal put on skates and goes to town.

See it played on Ysengrin's stream here.

Big shoutout and congratulation to @dc_ , who used this deck and became of champion of West Australia National.

Mulligan plan : get Hermes at the start.

Game plan : Sabotage and trash the corp.

There are multiple synergy in this deck.

First, the most obvious : AirbladeX (JSRF Ed.) allow you to use Tsakhia "Bankhar" Gantulga at nearly no cost.

Then, Audrey v2 let you break ice for very cheap. It synergize with Steelskin Scarring and Strike Fund, to get extra tempo while breaking ices (even with 0 credits).

Finally, 40 cards means you have 56% chance of getting Hermes on turn one. This put the corp on the back foot sooooo very much.

Friday Chip let us be more efficient and not have to install again an Imp. Which in turn let us gain a credit and a card nearly every turn.

Why Nga, because I found it easier to use and it force the corp to protect everything. Yes, Sabotage 1 is low, but it adds up, it mills the corp and take out options. Making every run valuable. A bit like having Maw.

With Tsakhia "Bankhar" Gantulga, Audrey v2 and Botulus, you will have no trouble passing ices, causing mischief and destruction.

No Free Lunch is there for extra econ and to shore up the weakness of this deck : tags.

I hope you'll enjoy this as much as I currently do.

I just watched the winner of West Australian Nationals win with this deck and it was glorious - Facechecking Anansi and Airblading off into the sunset

I took this to WA nats (and won the event) and it was such a sweet deck, it definitely helped that I played against Jinteki four times and NEH once which lined up really well and felt pretty straight forward. My one runner loss was against NBN tags which was really rough, but it didn't help that I was unfamiliar with most of the cards and ran into everything.

@grombatmole awesome. If there is a stream with the games, could you post it here? Thanks.

@dc_ I am so glad it worked out for you. Congratulation on your win, it is well deserved. I think Solidarity Badge should be included in the deck. Maybe replacing Nga? It would have helped you against NBN. What would you suggest?

@Diogene sadly no stream as all games were in meatspace

I tried the deck on jnet briefly with 2x Solidarity Badge 1x Light the Fire in place of Nga and Badge felt quite solid.
