    Hi Netrunner thread. I only have the base set and have played a few games as Shaper and HB. What's some other fun/decent stuff I can get out of the core set?

    play Noise, throw in Aesop's Pawnshop and Account Siphon, irritate the hell out of everyone you know

    I got blown out tonight 0-3 with the Monolith Deck.

    Back to the drawing board (NetRunnerDB)

    @Speed Racer hope you had better luck!

    I went 0-4, could've stayed to get my ass kicked some more but it was getting late

    The first match I played respectably and nearly won with the rubber

    Second match I got blown out of the water, both the dude's decks were extremely well tuned money making machines and he could just consistently outspend me every turn until I lost

    When you first install Bishop, you can then use a click to attach it to any piece of Ice the Corp has installed (but only if another Bishop--or other Caissa-type program--is not already on that ice). While Bishop is installed, the Ice has -2 strength (unlike Parasite, this can't trash Ice). While Bishop is hosted, you can spend a click to move it to a different piece of ice, BUT you have to swap between remote and central servers. So if you initially attach it to Ice protecting HQ, you have to move it to an ice protecting a remote server. If it's on a remote server, you have to move it to an ice protecting HQ, Archives or R&D.

    It's been awhile but basically bishop is part of a unique set of cards called cassia cards, meant to be run by Reina Roja

    It's just saying that if you have a cassia card already stuck on ice when you play bishop it limits where you can play it

    Cassia is very tricky to pull off

    It's not a very good card so I wouldn't waste time trying to understand it ;).

    Essentially the Caissa are meant to evoke chess pieces with the corp's ice as the 'chessboard' so bishop can only move "diagonally" between the remote and centrals.

    The plan is to spend clicks to move that -2 strength debuff around, but its ridiculously expensive for that effect in clicks and memory. Knight (has to do an L-shaped jump) and Rook (only moves in straight lines) have similar ideas but better effects.

    I would metaphorically kill for a 2.0 version of Cassia that was actually legit viable.

    Also I am always sad that PSF will never be a good card because man its alt art is the best:

    Actually I'm going to be running a shadowrun campaign soon, I wonder if the art from netrunner is up any where with the gameplay art ripped out because man the art in this game is great.

    @Inquisitor @Farangu
    Harebrained Schemes, the studio responsible for Shadowrun Returns/Dragonfall/etc has just set up a sister-channel on Twitch and one of their weekly shows is a Shadowrun campaign.
    https://youtu.be/zFM1OX_L7GE

    They also have a thing set up where subscribers to the channel can pledge to a Corporation. Donations to the channel can attach a messagr that will be read by a robot lady and now people are making donations as the Corporations.

    one of us, one of us

    this is basically what I did after going to my first league night. I had so much fun I went home and ordered every datapack I didn't have yet (which was everything except the first one, up to honour and profit which wasn't out yet)

    Same here. I think I'm going to be able to have an ok runner deck with only a few packs, my HB deck will need a lot more work

    If you can afford to drop the money on Data and Destiny there's a couple neutral cards in there that are superb for HB Glacier, especially Global Food Initiative. That card alone will improve a deck by a significant amount.

    MaxX seems like a pretty fun runner. I like the idea of supercharging my card draw, dumping a bunch of my stack into the heap, and then using stuff like Clone Chip, Deja Vu, and Same Old Thing as pseudo-tutors.

    Also her art is great.

    I love Andromeda

    I recognize that an Andromeda deck isn't the most efficient, in the long run, and that a bad initial draw can screw you

    But gosh, having a whole clutch of cards at the jump feels so good

    Andromeda is still probably the gold standard for aggressive criminal builds. That huge starting hand can give you such a good start that you can do a lot of damage to the corp before they can get their pants on. Of course, if you don't start snowballing before the corp gets established they're gonna lock you the fuck out

    Question for those that still follow the card pool (@Shorty)

    Is a runner deck based around Bad Publicity shenanigans viable? I remember loving the concept and really trying to make it work, but the cards just weren't there for it in mid 2014
