You *do* always come back! (1st @ Worlds 2023)

Sokka 4349

Check out my YouTube Channel where I have now posted a Worlds Recap Video. I go over my testing, more specific thoughts/explanations of this deck, my tournament experience, and some match analysis. It's a long one and if you can't watch it all I think the match analysis at the end is the best part (timestamps in description).

You *do* always come back

Shoutout to this amazing community who comes back year after year to enjoy this amazing game we all love ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿงก

Special shout-out to Atien for making me this beautiful Boomerang alt-art

Boomerang Alt


This is a very clean and solid Hoshiko list with good cards and no tech. I was expecting a very diverse corp meta at worlds so I just wanted a solid deck that is decent against a wide variety of corp archetypes and the plan was to rely on my piloting skills to figure out the rest. In hindsight, a Hannah would have been a good include; Snarebears brought a beast of an NEH deck that I did not prepare for at all and I had to play against that 4 times.

My Trusty Boomerang

Boomerang does a lot of work in Hoshiko. It allows you to contest remotes early, including 2-deep remotes in combination with Bankhar. It also solves a few specific problems that the breaker suite has trouble dealing with such as Bran, Gatekeeper, and Stavka. At the end of the game if there are no cards left in the Stack then the Boomerangs can cycle themselves which both makes use of Paladin credits and gives Hoshiko a card to draw at the start of the turn.

I want to give a special shout-out to everyone in Unband for being by my side during this Worlds Grind, to all the lovely people I got to meet at worlds, to NSG for running a top-notch event, and to my gracious opponents who know exactly how lucky I was in some games.

I know I say this all the time but this community truly is special and it means a lot to me to be a part of it. Thank you ๐Ÿ’š๐Ÿงก

I like how simple/straightforward this list is, leaning into player skill and strong fundamentals. It was good to meet you and play against you!

@Pyrefly With Hosh and a strong pilot, even a "standard" list does wonders. :)
