Mo Money No Problems

Here is my current Rebirth Andy build. It makes a ton of money and is a blast to play. I'm sure you already know but Temüjin Contract is amazing.

Start of Game

Mid-Game

  • By this point you should have most of your rig set up.
  • Be careful to not waste your Faeries or loose ZU.13 Key Master you have no recursion in this deck so losing a key breaker can really hurt. I love Paperclip and use to run Corroder but I think this is worth the extra influence. I use to stress all the time about ZU.13 Key Master and Corroder being hit by damage but now I only need to worry about ZU.13 Key Master. So as soon as ZU.13 Key Master hits your hand install it! You do not want to loose it.

Late Game

  • The late game can be tough is you have no more econ cards.
  • Rumor Mill is bonkers. I have tricked several people by playing it then running archives to snatch up a few agendas they left there because they couldn't pop Jackson. Another combo I frequently use is play Rumor Mill then Indexing. This keeps the corp from being able to mess up your indexing if Jackson isn't on the board. At first I thought the 2 influence for a current was a bit much but it really is good and shuts down so much stuff. My best turn so far with it was click 1 Rumor Mill, click 2 run archives and steal agendas, click 3 indexing, click 4 steal another agenda.
  • "Freedom Through Equality" is also very handy since a lot of corps run GFI and require you to steal 4 or more agendas in order to win. Indexing then playing this is a good combo if you do not suspect Jackson on the board.

Other Thoughts

  • e3 Feedback Implants is in here to help with HB Foodcoats type decks. This is one of the harder match ups and the click a Bioroid and pay a credit is a good deal.
  • Staying rich helps against several corps. Hard Hitting News isn't really a problem if you have a lot of money. Networking is in for an efficient removal of tags.
  • Breaking News is a pain as it can kill your Assest with The All-Seeing Eye and kill all of your credits with Closed Accounts. Honestly, I think I hate the Breaking News Closed Accounts combo more. It really sucks.
  • Use Film Critic to hold a Global Food Initiative. This makes it hard for them to use exchange of information on you. Plus it's a nice to have for The Future Perfect and other unfriendly ice.

I haven't been a real Criminal runner in the past and this deck has really made it a fun experience for me.

Have fun and let me know if you have any suggestions, Kevin

mental note: kevin is playing rumor mill.

I've been putting 1x or 2x New Angeles City Hall in all of my recent runner decks and it does so much work. I think it's much better than Networking if you are generally rich since it saves you clicks. Plus, it shuts off Breaking News + Closed Accounts/Exchange of Information and makes mincemeat out of Gutenberg, Data Raven and Turnpike.

I'd recommend Sports Hopper over Plascrete Carapace. The extra makes ZU.13 Key Master cost no , and helps mitigate traces even more, while providing burst damage protection and/or draw if you don't need it.

@internet_potato Good idea call about New Angeles City Hall @FarCryFromHuman I do like driving fancy cars and will give Sports Hopper a try.
