A one in all
A peace in silence
Scavenging hope from rubbish
Hold, forward attack
Hatchling takes its prey
Roosting upon frozen wall
Code, unpecked by all
Attack, the time now
Rubbish transforms to spark thought
Silence to stillness
Where’s Oracle May when you need her?
Sure, the haikus make it all seem like poised grace and then sudden, effective action, but really, this deck is frantically going, going, going.
Let’s do another Comet deck! I mean, Build Script makes sense in a Comet deck, right? It’s free, gets us a credit, and two more cards. Which can immediately be another one of our 29 events.
The deck is charmingly simple. Kit turns the outermost piece of ICE into a Code Gate. Egret turns hosted ICE into the three core ICE subtypes—which can be broken by our cheap and powerful Cyber-Cyphers. Scavenge to move Egret and Cypher around, Inti and Mimic to deal with problem ICE, if your opponent has something annoying.
Unfortunately, there’s only one answer for a strength 4 non-outer Sentry that is unrezzed: Tinkering. If they rez an Archer—and you didn’t tinker it—you’d better find your Levy or your Scavenges quickly.
I don’t think this is a particularly strong deck, but Build Script works really well in Comet, so I figured I’d go with it.
Early drafts of this were in Exile, because moving Egret around would draw us cards, but with only three Scavenge it didn’t seem like a really strong build. I feel like Exile is strongest with self-recurring programs, like Pawns or Conspiracy Breakers.
Anywho. Kit is fun and aggressive. Cyber-Cypher is cheap to install and cheap to break things with. It forces them to double ICE, then you can Egret the back piece. Indexing/Mad Dash is super easy to pull off when it costs you something like four credits to get into R&D.
I really, really wish I could’ve fit some Spooned in here. I love Kit Spoons, but Peace in Our Time is just such a great economy option for a setup Shaper with Comet. And Build Script costs influence. So does Process Automation. Can they just errata Kit to have 15 influence already? Heh.
I know. That would be too strong.
