[Startup] Pickup Flower, Subtle Smile (Updated)

Oddball 1180

This is the most updated version of my Hyoubu deck that I've been playing for most of 2021. It went 2-1 in the January 2022 Startup tournament and faced only Lat: Ethical Freelancers! I still love the concept of the deck, but after playing it for multiple months (and finally getting to play it in a tournament), I think I need to make additional adjustments.

Here were the additions I made for this version:

Digital Rights Management - Your fourth copy of Flower Sermon, or the agenda that will end you the game.

Hansei Review - I've upped to three copies and dropped Celebrity Gift to one. I've almost always been overdrawing with Flower Sermon, have a spare ice, or Subliminal Messaging sitting in my hand. Don't be afraid to trash cards as you rush.

On the chopping block:

Bran 1.0 - I've been finding I don't have the time or credits to spare for the ice to be relevant. Generally if I'm rezzing a Bran the game has gone longer than the deck wants it to.

Thanks again Ysengrin for booting back up these tournaments! I'm looking forward to playing next month.

Finally big shout out to Navelgazer for letting me bounce ideas off of you, being willing to chat about this deck endlessly and being an all around awesome guy!

I am profoundly grateful to you for your unwavering support and unwavering belief in me, even when I doubted myself and faced challenges along the way. ovo
