A meeting of minds
“But what’s in it for me?” Victoria asked, smiling pleasantly as she sipped her YucaBean latte.
“Was that not clear?” Cynthia replied, a tightness to her voice.
Victoria continued to smile. She probably shouldn’t bait Cynthia Haas, but Victoria had always believed the director of Haas-Bioroid took herself too seriously.
“Yes, alright. Unlimited processing power offloaded to the systems that net criminals themselves use to undermine our margins. But how do I sell this?”
“You fast track any project you want, and I can guarantee its safety. How about that new Rhapsody sensie drivel? Done.”
“It’s intriguing,” Victoria admitted. “Let me think on it.”
This deck looks degenerate.
I haven’t looked to see what other people are doing, so mine probably has more theme than terribleness, but seriously. Why is this possible?
With three Clone Suffrage and three Load Testings, the runner only has one click a turn. Throw in ELP, and they can only run if they have a run event, a click ability, or a current. Throw in Victoria Jenkins and the runner has zero clicks unless they have Beth or Josh B or something.
It’s gross. But I’m going to try it and see how hard it is to pull off the combo.
I put in Hades Shard by recommendation from one of the guys at THG, that way I’m less likely to burn through my deck before I win, and I put in Vanity Project to save a click here or there when scoring to win.
R&D is obviously a problem, that’s why we’ve got three Eli and three Seidr. ICE won’t matter once the combo is running, so the suite is relatively cheap with no late-game ICE.
We have a few outs if the combo doesn’t come together in regular Jeeves play, two Biotics, and Tech Startups that can bring Director Haas in for an extra click. In fact, you can score a 5/3 out of hand with Director Haas and two Biotics. Or a 6/4 out of hand with Jeeves in play as well. Plus Jeeves and Haas don’t need to be in play when you start that turn, you just need your Tech Startups on the board.
Since the end goal is to play three Load Testings a turn and then install or advance an agenda, we’ve got three PAD Campaigns to trickle the cash in and make sure we don’t run down to zero while we advance.
If you’re lucky, you get two extra clicks after the Load Testings (Director Haas/Jeeves), and you can win moderately faster.
Things getting trashed? Friends in High Places helps there too.
It’s a gross deck if it ends up being reliable in any sort of way.
But the theme is on point.
