This is my attempt at a rush deck in NEXT Design. I feel this identity is meant to be played FAST (Find Agendas, Score Them). A 3 ice opening hand means a 6-click advantage. So we better use that advantage wisely... no time to waste.
The goal of this deck is simple: score agendas faster than the runner can find their breakers. And if they do find their breakers: make it taxing enough that they'll have a hard time getting enough credits to prevent you from scoring out your final agenda.
I feel 22 ice is definitely a must and wouldn't go any lower. You need your first hand to be good, so you have a tempo advantage. No fancy grail ice, no clickable bioroids, but primarily cheap ice that ends the run. NEXT Bronze, NEXT Silver and Mother Goddess are obvious additions. Mother Goddess works great early game on a remote, and later it just becomes another NEXT ice. Since this deck runs on a low number of credits, the Pop-up Windows are a must include. Those additional credits can mean a win-or-lose. Wraparound, Lotus Field, Guard and Architect are changeable depending on the meta.
The deck runs a relatively low number of assets and upgrades to ensure the runner cannot create havoc by randomly trashing stuff from HQ or R&D. You don't want them to win by accident because they saw so many different cards. So no Adonis Campaign or Melange Mining Corp.. A low number of assets also means one remote is enough.
Instead of assets I focused on burst economy and agendas that provide moneys. Corporate Sales Team is a must include agenda and one of the primary cards this deck is based on. It feels so great when you score it your second turn! The Advanced Concept Hopper also brings in a few credits or cards, but you can switch it for a Project Vitruvius if that would make you happy. Lateral Growth and Blue Level Clearance are superb. They provide you the speed that you need. Restructure would be too expensive. You rarely have that much money.
Cyberdex Virus Suite is awesome if you want to Biotic out your last agenda. Executive Boot Camp may not be a frequently played card, but it works well against Dyper and Val, or any other deck that doesn't want you to rez your ice. Its ability to allow you to increase the strength of NEXT ice by rezzing ice on different servers can be a late game winner. And it can get you a Jackson if you really need one. Ark Lockdown works well against Account Siphon, The Maker's Eye, Blackmail, Clot or any breaker that is in the runners heap, giving you just the tempo you need to score out and win.
So far the deck has performed quite well, if you get a decent amount of ice at the start. And it's just fun to rush out agendas while seeing the desperate look on the runner's face trying to draw up to get their breaker suite ready.
