Argh my knee Dead Heck! (6 Agenda Medtech, 5 alarm edition)

Shiiuga 1193

So six agenda Harmony Medtech: Biomedical Pioneer is nothing new. 3x TFP and 3x PriReq/Shard builds have been doing the rounds for a while now. I always felt it was missing something to make it super spicy, and I think the answer is Punitive Counterstrike.

Global Food Initiative makes it harder for them to get an outright win before you burn their house down, as does Shi.Kyū.

A good tactic is Mushin No Shin-ing a TFP down when you have two Punitive Counterstrikes in hand. If they run it, great, set them on fire. If they don't, score it for half your required agenda points! Then do it again, only this time with Project Junebug!

Lots of net damage ICE in there to cop them with when you rez it, making them even more likely to have few enough cards to make the Punitive dream real. A Data Mine in to a Kitsune Snare! is fun for all the family.

Mulligan for a Punitive, so you can set up your kill options early. Try not to let them see the Punitives if possible, because you don't want no pesky Plascretes messing things up for everyone.

Since the fact Punitive Counterstrike and Global Food Initiative has a really bad synergy and that the runner still need to steal only 3 agendas (unless he stole 3 gfi, poor chance) I think this deck is not that good.

Because as you can tell from the deck title I obviously try and build good decks.

And Film Critic too is a good counter.

Sorry bro, u just don't like much "only for fun" decks.

If you do not want to show the Punitives, you might want to swap Celebrity Gifts for Medical Research Fundraisers...

I don't like fun either! Down with fun! Stop trying to have fun!

The only Fun I like is the Dwarf Fortress variety.

And yeah, Film Critic sucks, but it's Fraser than any runner that plays this deck. Also, if someone slots Film Critic to counter Harmony Medtech that's the kind of hecked up meta I'm down for.

Deader. Not Fraser. Although it probably is more Fraser too.

Film critic is going to be in a lot of decks, so it's best not to worry about it.. if they plonk a FC down then don't try to bait a TFP, simple :D

I always install film critic against JINTEKI. they have napds, fetals and TFP. I think it's enough.

Why not slotting Crick? Are u playing with open Archives? I would add an Snatch and Grab as 1Of to get rid of Film Critic or Kati Jones e.g.

2 Dec 2015 Shiiuga

I'm playing Jinteki with Shi Kyu, so you bet your ass I'm playing open archives.

I would recommend sloting Crick cuz it taxes the runner and he has still access to Archives and can hit the Shi.Kyū. Another thing is that you can recover things like Data Mine if the runner decides to not break the sub.

Crick looks like a good piece of Archives ice but really, the number of times that archives even gets run, especially in a game against Jinteki, is going to be 0-1 per game. Not worth the slot.
