Fast deck, meme deck, fun deck. Go as fast as PD, don't panic, enjoy the game.
Shoutout to Jon for organizing the Montreal Store Championship. It went smoothly and was a lot of fun. The Championship was held on 2022-04-30.
I tried to make a deck using all those agendas that can be fast advanced in Weyland. At 40 cards, it kept failing. At 44, it was not fast enough. The answer, of course, should have been obvious : 42!!
Mulligan plan : At least one ice in hand.
Game plan : score from hand with reckless abandon. This deck can win in 7 turns.
Here are some cards that were tested and rejected : Trick of Light : too much variance. If I had draw a Wall to Wall early, it is good, otherwise, it robs me of click by forcing be to advance ices. It pairs better if you use Dedication Ceremony, because you can use it to put a lot of advance with one click.
Global Food Initiative : while it let me lower the agenda count to 9, it cannot be scored.
Reconstruction Contract with Dedication Ceremony : Great combo that naturally pairs well with the agenda suite, but I needed the slots for more ices and I just need to score 4 agendas. With Hostile Takeover, you need a fast advance tool for 3 agendas and there are 6 of them.
Trying different iterations for this deck was fun. Once in a blue moon, you can kill a runner by scoring Azef Protocol. Because of Weyland Consortium: Built to Last ability, this feels a lot like playing Sportsmetal: Go Big or Go Home. This deck is not build to last haha!
Thanks again to Jon for the organization, and all who came, I had a great time! Cheers!
