The Tournament Journey Pt 2 (Store Champ)

1x Inside Job (Core Set)
3x Special Order (Core Set)
2x Infiltration (Core Set)
3x Sure Gamble (Core Set)

Program (5)
3x Datasucker (Core Set) •••
2x Sneakdoor Beta (Core Set)

Couple of key points... none of this 1 of breaker stuff, I like to consistently draw my breakers so I can apply early pressure. 3 Emergency Shutdown as I believe that most corps are running big ice again and they are devastating against them. Sneakdoor, this is one of the cards that makes Gabe great, however most people don't expect it against Andy and if you have good remote pressure, it really hits hard when you drop this and agendas have pooled in hand... won me a lot of games.

Haas-Bioroid - Campaign

Sentry (6)
1x Ichi 1.0 (Core Set)
3x Rototurret (Core Set)
2x Grim (Opening Moves)

ICE (1)
1x Chimera (Cyber Exodus)

A HBFA deck, using high cost assets... 3 San San, 3 Eve, 3 Adonis, 3 Jackson Howard, puts the runner in a position where if they trash everything then they can't afford to install, run etc and if they don't I have a huge credit advantage and can rez and FA without too much concern. Really powerful.
I will be adding in NAPD Contract as soon as I get it to further tax the runner economy.

Some sterling analysis from Dave/Cerberus here, hopefully you all enjoy it and are able to prepare for the forthcoming Chronos Tour! What's everyone thinking about taking? Anything that didn't work for you in Store Championships?

Took Katman and ETF FA to the Huddersfield Chronos Protocol today. Squeaked into 8th place as I played horrendously in the first two rounds (for example: running second click, instead of first or second against Weyland, when they have scored a False Lead to faceplant into Snare & double Scorched).

Three rounds remaining, I had to win all my games (no modified wins) to have a chance. Turns out when you focus, good things happen!

Chose Katman, as despite the excitement surrounding Swordsman before it's release, it appears not many have added it to their repertoire in my local area (North West). Is this the case for everyone else? Didn't see a single Swordsman all day so it worked out quite nicely.

Interested in your thoughts on Wraparound, performed as good as advertised? I'd have thought as people are sat across from HB, Corroder would be a high priority install early on. I really like the mix of Rototurret and Grim though. Bet a few have been caught out thinking the Mimic was enough to prevent some destruction :)

As a fellow Katman player, I also find swordsman less common that you might expect. I think it's a decent Jinteki card, but not worth splashing for. I would however advise carrying either a mimic or a femme just in case (femme also helps out against wraparound).

I think most people would expect Grim to be around and plan accordingly (no breakers out, keeping an eye on the credit count). It can be useful, but the BP and not ending the run can be a problem...
