The Shape of Shadows

CodeMarvelous 19757

I have been using this deck for a while now and it is terrifying to play against. It runs most servers for free and can when piloted well produce a hard R&D Lock.

Helpful ai and underworld contacts produces the 3 real credits I need per turn as well as giving me an emergency boost for my stealth breakers when I need it.

You definitely do not need all stealth cards in play to make full use of this deck. Clone chips are usually used for SMC to get the other cloaks once the breakers are down.

All in all this is probably my favorite shaper deck to date. You haven't lived until youve broken a janus and an archer in the same server for zero actual credits.

Cool, nice improvements. I'm curious if you're hurting for HQ multi access. I know CI isn't big now, but it's always a darkhorse for me. You never hurt for stealth credits either? Does blackat really feel that much better than corroder?

Add a The Personal Touch maybe? BlacKat+The Personal Touch = break Eli 1.0 for 1 stealth credit.

Yeah, my problem with this deck is that I don't really see much in the way of multi-accessing here. I tried something kind of like this at my local store's tourney this weekend, and Legwork still kicked major ass. I'm pretty sure my opponents would have been able to sneak more stuff past me if not for that card...

You can have cheap runs all day long, but you're still only seeing one card at a time...

Also, with no John Masanori, no Diesel/Quality Time, and no Replicator, how are you actually getting through the deck that fast? Pro Contacts alone?

Really close to something I have been running for a while.

Main difference is that I use kati for real credits and modded to get some interfaces out for free as the multi access. The one of box-e is also nice something and basically evreything installs for free with kates ability. Clone chipping the smc's for cloaks or the other steal breaking just feels really good.

The idea of a general turn is make a run, get a card with professional contacts, install something., to whatever with the last click. Rince and repeat until 7 points :)

The helpfull AI and underworld contact is really interesting. Will give that a go since the support econ of the deck is still something I'm unsure about.

(Starts a slow clap...) Best stealth deck I've seen too date, no nonsense and aggressive... I'd love to see how my RP fairs... That said, I'm going to be the jerk and ask how you feel about Ash 2X3ZB9CY and Caprice Nisei? Do you go straight for the R&D lock and not worry about the remote or do you plan on keeping constant pressure and trash everything as they come out...?

How is it handling Blue Sun: Powering the Future? Curtain wall is expensive for BlacKat and Switchblade is much better agaisnt Archer than Dagger
