Name inspired by the amazing and iconic stickers that were awarded out during the tournament depicting the raccoon on Kabonesa’s shirt.
This deck went 5-0 at Calgary Regionals beating Mirrormorph, Titan, IG, IG (same IG), and Titan (also same Titan). My Titan deck went 3-1 and can be found here.
This deck is easily the most flexible deck I have ever seen or played. There are no bad matchups with it as you are very well teched for every one and it’s just a matter of knowing what to do and not do. When Downfall came out the first thing that came to mind was Stimhacking out Rezekis turn 1 with Wu. With Stimhack or Peace in Our Time you can consistently set up 2 or 3 credits of drip (2 or 3 depending on the matchup) on the first turn of every game. This also sets up Khusyuk very nicely for later in the game.
Because this is one of those shaper decks that is mostly comprised of tech cards, this deck requires knowledge on what it is you need for each matchup. If you’re against a glacier type of Corp (such as Blue Sun, Palana, Azmari, and any Jinja decks) you’re looking to set up all 3 Rezeki turn 1, get some MU down, and play the remote game with Laamb + Surfer. If they try to tax your Laamb ability with Border Control you might have to install both Laamb, or use Rejig to refresh Laamb’s ability. Sometimes the Corp will slow down a lot to beef up their remote and you can punish them with Legwork and close the game with Khusyuks. If you’re against a rush/FA type of deck or any deck that uses very few ICE, you can Wu out Chameleon after facechecking the remote to contest early agendas. In these matchups I like to use Engolo as my main breaker and then look to Rebirth into Kit.
Akamatsu Mem Chip is better than Cyberdelia for this deck because the latter costs too much to install early and you don’t make that many runs with this deck. NetChip was also tested but finding the first copy of it when you want to install an SMC, Engolo, or Laamb when you already have 3 MU used up on Rezekis makes things very awkward.
Rebirth is probably my favourite card in the deck due to the flexibility that it offers. Rebirthing into Kit is useful as mentioned earlier, Lat is great if you feel you’re behind on tempo or if you’re against a Punitive deck (works well with Chameleon even if you have a brain damage), Chaos Theory is a 0 cost Akamatsu and can be chosen if extra MU is needed, and Jesminder should be the first Rebirth target you consider because in the games where she’s relevant it is often game-winning (any deck with Data Ravens, IP Blocks, and RIP Argus).
Note that you usually don’t want to see SMC in your opening hand because installing them from your grip is strictly worse than using Wu to install them from your Stack unless you want an early Clot threat in which case you want to find an SMC before you Wu-SMC 2 Rezekis.
Thank you to everyone who continues to play this beautiful game and especially to @zerothmaxima for running a great tournament!

How do you typically use flame out? I used it + gamble to get 2 rezeki out turn 1 and used it again later for misdirection, but I was hurting for clone chips when the second HHN landed

Missing the third CC still hurts, but that is mostly because it takes a while to find it, and rebirth to lat helps with that.
It's not an easy deck but it sure is fun! Thanks for sharing

Loving this deck so far. The flexibility really suits my temperament ^^
One question though, would you sack a Rizeki early, to make room for a Lamb, if you can't find MU's?
Been running into a lot of Hortums, where the chameleon doesn't do anything, and find waiting for MU is a tempo killer.
That said, I'm probably playing it a bit aggro. I did consider Au Revoir (prior to them going restricted, guess that temptation is taken care of now) but I like how Rizeki allows you to allow down if needed, over having to aggro the corp.
Also, how do you deal with Titan? Don't quite feel I can keep up with them if they get lucky with ice in the first 2 rounds.

Hortum is indeed very awkward with this icebreaker suite. If I see an early Hortum on a remote that I want to break I’ll likely use Engolo for it. It sounds like you’re playing a bit too aggro if you’re running into this problem tho. I’ll usually let the Corp score the first agenda (I’ll poke the server for fun to keep them on their toes) as I draw and set up the late-game remote lock of Laamb Surfer. If I’m expecting a very fast game (especially against Titan as you mentioned) where the Corp isn’t stacking too many ICE and jamming agendas that I can’t just let them score (Atlas) then I’ll only install 2 Rezekis turn 1. This does 2 things. 1, it keeps 2 free MU for a breaker (preferably Engolo and then look to Rebirth into Kit). And 2, it keeps an SMC for me to tutor said breaker and it also gives easier access to the Clot if needed.
In general I would suggest not making too many early runs because the late-game is truly where this deck shines. Especially if you’re against something like a Jinja Border Control deck you wouldn’t want to poke early and allow the Corp to rez the Border Control that is usually put in the innermost position (because if you don’t give them the opportunity to rez it early then you can just surf past it in the late-game)

Good points on the surfing. I'm just having to shake my MaxX and Crim' ways of going Aggro. I tried a version of this with Au Revoir as well, and while the running feeds my inner "punch it in the face again" desire, it is vulnerable to shutdown.
That's what I liked about your take on the deck. It allows me to set up around the Corp, instead of being super dependant on their play.
Thanks for the clarifications man, really appreciate it!

Thank you for this list. I used it in a recent GNK. I added a 3rd Clone Chip as the 46th card because I am a heathen.
I find that it needs a good even-handed and headed approach to everything with this deck (except when you draw no Khusyuks because they're stuck on the bottom 25% of your deck, then you can salt and rage.)

Glad you gave the deck a go and hope you enjoy it!

Heya. Why Rejig over Scavenge?

Hope that helps!
Totes jamming this on jnet for the next couple weeks! Was testing out a couple Wu builds and nothing seemed to click.
