Brendan's Sweet Purr

Postby Pete » Fri Nov 13, 2015 10:51 am

In the same way that I have my "choo-choo" when I score an AstroScript, Brendan has a catchphrase that's possibly even more annoying. When you're tagged and access a Quantum Predictive Model sitting behind a Data Raven, Brendan purrs a rich and luxurious "meow."



My rage flows hot at this point. Tears are close.

Further insult is added when, as the blood red mist clears, you recall that Brendan's playing SYNC and the Data Raven tag will cost you 3 credits to clear. Even if the agenda wasn't a QPM, the Data Raven tag makes each agenda into an NAPD because it costs 3cr+click to clear the darn tag after the steal.

So, I'm thinking about slotting the bike into my Leela deck. It's useful in other scenarios too.



Thoughts? I gotta burn good cards away to slot this. Do I slot just 1 or 2? Do I further tech for support cards such as Adjusted Chronotype? (I'm thinking no.)

How is everyone else dealing with Brendan's damnable purr?

Suck it up and play Femme Fatale. Play 3 of the bloody things. NBN ICE is totally unreasonable, just have no interaction with it.

Don't play the motorcycle.

Theres a few options for dealing with schrodinger's cat in criminal best is probably NACH as you can also clear tags post siphon without using clicks but there's also networking which I think gets around sync's ability and dorm computer which negates the data raven tag or the new hunting grounds which works for tollbooth and Grail too.

Fun fact, NACH and Film Critic gives you free wins against a lot of the tagging nonsense from NBN that's around these days. Easy mode.

I seriously do want to borrow 3 NACH next week. Would that be agreeable Pete as per our chat conversation?

This isn't just to deal with SYNC - everything that can tag at the moment can hurt my Sunny deck horribly.

I think it depends a lot on the Sunny build. I basically leave her at 2 link so it helps me just roll through Data Raven's sub without having to break. but ultimately you're never going to be close to the Trace 7 even if you were a link build. She is also more dependent on clearing tags than others both because she will always have investment in her resources for econ and because she lacks recursion to deal with Keegan Lane. If I know a deck list I am playing against then running "tag me" is an easier decision but part of what makes NBN so annoying right now is that, theoretically, they can be using the tags they can get in faction to trash an essential program, sweep your entire rig, or go out of faction to kill you to death. If you don't know WHY they want tags it is hard to play around, especially if you are a cautious player aiming for a dominating end game.

I was going to offer helpful advice, but watching you all scramble around to tech against this deck ("I seriously do want to borrow 3 NACH next week," says Guy, while Pete is going to buy a frickin' motorcycle) is far too much fun.

Lovegood is really good if you have The Source.

He can be an underworld contact if you have a Drug Dealer out. He's pretty good in connections criminal. Which as we all know is a bonafide tier 1 archetype.

Fair enough - I hadn't considered that this was worth doing.

Are you using Sunny's console and things like Rabbit Hole to make the most of the link etc?

My build basically goes "I have 2 link - great, that opens up trickle economy I otherwise wouldn't have which eventually means I win the money war which is half of Netrunner, what can I do to not lose in the meantime" . In many ways it is not very creative, and ignores half of Sunny.

I'm using exactly Sunny's console and Rabbit Hole.

I think that if you're not using the console there's no good reason to play Sunny, and if you are using the console then you want at least 5 link. Rabbit Hole is about the easiest way to get at least 2 more link on the board quickly.

How does the slamming 8 down on that console feel though? I assumed it would suck.

This list below is what I have been working on/with:

Sunny side UP

(Data and Destiny)

Event (14)
3x (Breaker Bay) •••
2x (Core Set) ••••
3x (Core Set)
3x (Core Set) •••
3x (Core Set)

Hardware (1)
1x (Creation and Control) ••

Resource (23)
3x (Creation and Control)
3x (Order and Chaos)
3x (The Source)
2x (Double Time) ••
2x (Humanity's Shadow)
3x (Future Proof)
2x (Cyber Exodus)
2x (The Valley)
3x (A Study in Static)

Icebreaker (8)
2x (Data and Destiny)
2x (Data and Destiny)
2x (Data and Destiny)
2x (Honor and Profit)

Program (4)
1x (The Valley) ••
1x (Core Set) •••
2x (Creation and Control) ••••• •
25 influence spent (max 25)
50 cards (min 50)
Cards up to Data and Destiny

Deck built on .

As you can see it is all late game and all "Well her breakers may not be efficient but sooner or later the money pile doesn't even remotely care"

What do you not have in the above deck that makes room for Rabbit Hole and her console? Is it a really cool thing? Do you like that console?
