With Netrunner ending I knew I had to attend the last official UK Nats and try for the coveted prize that is Top Adam. Things did not go to plan...
There were three Adam players, and we all ended on 8-6, but my strength of schedule and a timed win gave me the honour of being the worst of us.
I went 7-5 and then ID’d in the last round as I was knackered and hung over. Adam beat Azmari, Jemison and Mti, and Engolo was MVP for me outside of the FtT + RNG combo.
My favourite play of the day was thinking I had found an out after being hit with 2 x Economic Warfare into HHN. Leaving me on 4 credits and needing to clear 3 tags to survive as I knew the corp had HPT ready. I realised I could get in to RND for 1 bad pub, and use RNG Key to go up to 7 creds. so I happily run RND only to find Too big to Fail, which of course has a trash cost. So all RNG key does is enable me to trash the damn thing, and I ended up losing 2 credits net and got killed next turn. #Adam_problems
Second favourite moment was running archives against Argus and finding 3 Breached Domes. I was not ready for that.
The deck is just an update of New World Adam, with Engolo added as a faux AI. It won me the games against Azmari and Jemison. I think I would drop the Multithreaders, but don’t know what I would add instead.
All in all I had some brilliantly fun games on the day, and I'm glad I decided to rep Adam at the last ever official tournament in the UK, even if it also makes me the worst Adam player in the UK in perpetuity.
