Wait for it
“Yes, yes, yes, yes, yes,” Bryan said, checking each item off on the PAD and then holding it out. “These are all fantastic Savir. Great job everybody.”
Savir, Bryan’s assistant took the PAD back hesitantly and looked uncomfortable. “Mr. Stinson, we had two hours blocked off to run through those files. Some of them are very sens…”
“And we got them done in two minutes! Excellent work, Savir.”
“Savir, I said excellent work. Now go get a bagel or something.”
“Yes, sir,” Savir said, taking the PAD and exiting the office.
Bryan stood up from behind his desk and stretched. He grabbed a glass from his end table and filled it halfway with scotch. “Desk: Dial Ned,” he said, enunciating clearly so his desk AI would connect the call.
“Dialing Ted,” a quiet, feminine voice confirmed.
“No, no. Dial. Ned.” Bryan said, elongating each sound until it was comical.
“Dialing Ned,” the voice responded.
The line connected almost immediately. “Good afternoon, Professor Moseley here.”
“Ned! Good buddy. It’s quitting time and you know what that means!”
“Oh god, Bryan. Look. I’ve got work to…”
“It can wait! Meet me at the bar. And suit up!”
Up in flames
So I’ve been kicked in the teeth many, many times by Bryan Stinson decks. Okay, so only once. By an Engineering the Future build that made it impossible for me to compete money-wise. With Barney and Jeeves. It was horrendous.
This is like that, except with fire.
Our goal, of course, is to make sure Aaron Marron is not on the field by applying MCA Informants. We also want to make a boat ton of cash with Beanstalk, Hedge, IPO, and Restructure—all of which are Transactions, so core Weyland and Barney—I mean Bryan—love them.
But this is not a Bryan Stinson deck. It’s a Watchtower deck.
We’re going to use Watchtower as our early ICE. Our goal is to get them to facecheck it and steal an agenda before they’re ready. Then we can Watchtower for the kill pieces we’re missing, or the economy we need to land a Midseasons.
Put that Oaktown out behind a Watchtower! Beg them to install their Fracter and then run through a non ETR code gate. Give us that sweet, sweet R&D search!
If they’ve got Film Critic, go for SEA Source. If they’ve got Aaron, go for Midseasons.
Then blow them to hell with Scorch and Boom.
