I have't published any decks in quite awhile as I haven't played things that have made me really exited. This deck has sparked a really love for building and tweaking a deck so I thought I would share it with you all.
If you want to see me play it check out my live streamed games here.
First, I need to shout out @skry for the core design of the deck. He built a Cache Refresh deck for SOCR11 that had Jinja City Grid in The Outfit and I thought it was a really interesting idea. I also need to shout of @analyzechris for suggesting some better cards to add to the deck then I originally put in. His suggestions were very helpful.
So originally, I just wanted to give the Cache Refresh deck a try because I was interested in seeing how it played. I tried playing it on jnet against standard decks and it faired pretty well so I then began to think about how I could make it better for the standard format. The biggest changes to the deck from the Cache Refresh deck was Violet Level Clearance, an Audacity, a Cyberdex Virus Suite for Aumakua, and a bunch of stronger ice that we don't have access to in Cache Refresh. I think the extra draw and better ice really make the deck perform pretty well.
I think a good starting hands has a cheap ETR ice, some econ like hedge or Too Big to Fail, Rashida Jaheem and Jinja City Grid. If you see Jinja early the game feels like a blow out. On the stream @joseki suggested that I use VLC to dig for Jinja and I think it is the correct call.
You mostly want to place them on a single remote and RD. Ice for HQ are Afshar and Border Control for Crims. Surveyor is always best on the remote. Don't have a single iced surveyor or even a double iced.
Install ice for free with Jinja and jam agendas in the remote. Beat runners that are taking too long to set up. If you don't find Jinja build a big server the hard way. You still have pretty good econ to score and rez ice.
Give this deck a spin and let me know your thoughts. I'd love to hear your feedback.
