Adjusted Matrix

Gift horse

Kate held the net chip to her eye, trying to discern any manufacturer markings, nicks, discolourations–anything that would give her a hint as to the origin of the strange piece of hardware.

It had arrived early this morning by courier. The return address had led to a shell company that led nowhere else. She’d spent hours going through the net trying to trace who had sent her the enigmatic chip. Nothing.

Finally, Kate had decided to try it out. She set up an offline rig. She pulled the hardware that let it network, and she wrapped the the thing in a dampening blanket just to be sure.

Then she plugged it in.

The screen booted up, and instead of the regular activation sequence, there was only one word.

Like many, I thought Adjusted Matrix went well on Endless Hunger. An 11-strength Icebreaker is hard to argue with, and now we can get past each piece of ICE for a click, unless it has an ETR. If it has an ETR, then we just need one installed card and some credits.

With Kate, that’s easy to do. Net Chips are essential to this build. We need, at minimum, two out at a time. This puts Endless Hunger in our regular memory, Opus on a chip, and MKUltra has space on the last chip. Still, I’d love to have more. Replicator helps us get them out early, then we feed the Replicators to our hungry breaker.

Cache and Harbinger are obviously also in here for hunger targets.

The gameplan is to Indexing and Mad Dash for points, burn through our installed cards, and eventually Levy to reset installables.

Temple of the Liberated Mind is a fun inclusion that can get us an extra piece of ICE once per turn. I think it works here, because we can use it mid-run unlike some other gain-click abilities.

Might be a bit slow, but then again, maybe it won’t be. I’m not sure how to measure this deck, honestly. It’s odd.

PS: Starving Artist Kate should totally be a thing. Endless Hunger with Artist Colony somehow…? The wheels are spinning.
