    Do you think it would help at all if Corps could mess with the Runner's board in more reliable ways?

    Like, Runners have a ton of options when it comes to derezzing ice, trashing assets, and doing all sorts of things to the Corp's area.

    But unless the Corp is going for a tagstorm build, there's not a whole lot they can do to the Runner's side. You're often forced into a highly reactive role.

    this is why I love jinteki, because even though you're not messing with the board, you're definitely impeding the runner much more directly in that sense

    There is always Marcus Batty into an Archer for a 66% chance to trash their entire rig.

    I'm fine with the current level of hardware/software manipulation on the corp side but I wish it were a little easier to manipulate resources

    Losing plascrete doesn't actually bother me all that much, with stuff like Guru Davinder and Sports Hopper (which, in Geist, can basically just eat a scorch)

    as a geist main, I am physically, physically vibrating over the introduction of sports hopper

    I was poo-pooing that card at first because the math on it is honestly pretty unfavorable

    then I decided that it's basically plascrete if plascrete only had three counters on it and wasn't blank in a matchup against HB

    which makes it pretty good in most runners and The Shit in some of them (geist being the most obvious)

    I'm honestly not terribly worried about econ choices after all that stuff goes. Sundew kinda sucks for RP but them's the ropes, there's other good new options for them too and that's pretty cool.

    Well, I'd assume that losing Sundew would be the least of RP's problems when rotation happens, because RP itself will be rotating out as well. (It was in Trace Amount, the second data pack of the first cycle.)

    AND IT WILL BE A GLORIOUS DAY.

    Yeah... Yeah I totally remembered this I was making a joke

    <_<

    there is a reason we call RP the Soulgrinder

    it is not fun to play against and I won't be sad when it rotates out, even if it does mean that Jinteki will be impossible to play at tournaments for awhile

    I do definitely feel like it's unreasonably hard for anything other than FA or Scorch strats to work for the Corp, but I'm not super sure why that is.

    I have my suspicions (Runners' best econ sources are a lot safer than Corps' best econ sources; low-cost, low-influence breakers that let you straight up ignore Ice), but I'm not good enough at analysis to really put numbers to my suspicions.

    Hmmmm I can't quite agree with the first bit there. HB glacier has been super good for quite a while.

    Of course it's lynchpins are ash and caprice so come rotation it'll suffer without new tools.

    there isn't much from the first two cycles it really likes

    shock, celebrity gift, fetal AI, Hokusai grid

    but I think in the next cycle there's gonna be more support for non-ice net damage

    yeah i've been looking at running an ambush heavy, long game CP deck but a lot of those staples are older, so I need to skew more to what its strengths are

    it is worth pointing out that cycles won't rotate for at least 18 months

    and we have all of Kala Ghoda and the two next cycles worth of cards to see before that happens

    I think it is a little early to be planning around the post-rotation meta

    Shorty on

    I'm not smart enough to play Biotech and the rest just don't interest me

    It could be worse, you could have to play against an IG or ITD deck. Also Palana is well positioned to take RP's place as a viable top tier when rotation happens.

    I play a lot of anarch so IG has never been really frustrating for me

    ITD is definitely a bullshit card though, I'm glad most people don't have the patience for it

    Okay I'll tell you what, if you're interested in a jinteki.net league, then shoot me an @ in this thread!

    It'd basically be a swiss style tournament and each round would last a week or so. During that time you just have to arrange with your pairing to play your games on jinteki.net and then report back to me!

    @anzekay i'd totally be up for that


    settled on making a noise deck, and worked it out so i can basically build one i'm happy with with the core set, one expansion and one data pack

    between the two expansions i've bought the cards i have the most access to corpside are weyland and HB

    think i'm gonna go with an HB fast advance deck

    Who's got noise deck advice

    Should I just take his ability as icing on the cake and build just a solid anarch deck that can score on archives occasionally, or is there a good way to lean into his ability

    Gravedigger and demolition run obviously synergize with him but they both take some legwork to give results

    I guess I could combine mediums with demolition run to trash multiple cards at once
