Andy reborn

Postby Nekader » Mon Jun 06, 2016 12:28 pm

So following a chat with Mendax at the UKGE I've had a go at building a stealth Andy that will take advantage of Rebirth to go Leela all over the current yella meta. The plan is to use Jak Sinclair to make free runs, racking up Sec Testing money and trashing everything in sight. In this list, I've opted for a stealth suite to try and retain that money for its intended purpose: upsetting yellow. However, I'm having trouble balancing the influence of the stealth support suite with Jak.

Andromeda: Dispossessed Ristie (Humanity's Shadow)

Event (17)
1x Rebirth (The Liberated Mind) •
3x Account Siphon (Core Set)
2x Inside Job (Core Set)
3x Special Order (Core Set)
3x Sure Gamble (Core Set)
3x Dirty Laundry (Creation and Control)
1x Legwork (Honor and Profit)
1x Drive By (The Underway)

Hardware (6)
3x Desperado (Core Set)
3x Silencer (Double Time)

Resource (18)
2x Political Operative (Democracy and Dogma)
2x The Turning Wheel (The Liberated Mind) ••
1x Kati Jones (Humanity's Shadow)
2x Same Old Thing (Creation and Control)
2x John Masanori (Opening Moves)
3x Security Testing (Honor and Profit)
3x Ghost Runner (The Spaces Between)
1x Film Critic (Old Hollywood) •
2x Jak Sinclair (Data and Destiny) ••••

Icebreaker (4)
1x Mongoose (Kala Ghoda)
1x Corroder (Core Set) ••
1x Refractor (First Contact) ••
1x Switchblade (Up and Over)

12 influence spent (maximum 15)
45 cards (min 45)
Cards up to The Liberated Mind

So I'm sharing this because I've never been a particularly good deckbuilder but this seems like it could be strong as a meta call for the indefinite future and any help tuning and fine tuning would be greatly appreciated. I'm worried about a lack of Cloaks and am thinking it may be worth ditching the stealth suite altogether in favour of more draw. The deck has money for days, especially if you can land a couple of early Siphons to slow ice rezzing.

Do you worry about the Glacier match up at all?

If you DID ditch the Stealth what would you put in? Presumably you'd slot in Femme & Zu?

Glacier is the easy matchup for Stealth! There's no better rig for taking on HB than a stealth rig.

Batty is the card I worry about. And Astroscript. And Blue Sun.

Glacier was an issue temporarily just because I could get taxed out by multiple code gates. Making room for Cloaks will help with that. Depends on if the money continues to be good as to whether or not I'd move away from stealth. If I work the list above there's no reason to at all though.

Keegan Lane and any 'Trash Programs' effects are hurting this deck sooo much, with no recursion...

Batty is killer too.

Sorry I'm just adding more things that need influence attending to.

If Keegan/Batty is becoming a problem, maybe try to find room for Sac Con to prevent the trashing? It's not the best use of 1 influence in crim but its cheaper then multiple breakers I guess? Combos with Faerie too in other match ups

Finding the influence in crim is tough
