Project CROW 3

This deck is part of the third iteration of the Project CROW mini-campaign for beginners familiar with System Core 2019. It consists of three Runner and three Corp decks, that are built up over three steps. They start at the System Core 2019 with a few additions and end up with currently competitively viable decks that have placed well in tournaments.

Description

We've now arrived at the final level of the Argus list. This is the deck, that was played by @longi at German Nats standing undefeated at both the team and main event.

If you had problems closing out games in the earlier iterations, you now have access to one copy of Audacity, which is included as a way of closing out games using Project Atlas tokens. Try to overadvance your Project Atlas early on, when the Runner can't steal it (be it because they're missing a breaker or because running might trigger Hard-Hitting News) and then cruise to a quick win later on in the game.

Furthermore, you now have Too Big to Fail to quickly refresh your economy with an obvious downside later on. Argus games typically end with 3-4 bad publicity, which can spiral out of control very quickly for you, so be mindful of when to use it.

The ice suite was fleshed out a bit with a copy of Afshar to protect HQ and three copies of Mausolus which is a great piece of annoying ice, even when you have bad publicity. And on the sentry side you've got Surveyor and Winchester mostly to force the Runner into installing their sentry breaker. It's rare that you install more than 2-3 pieces of ice on a single server, so don't try to get maximum value out of your Surveyor, while losing on another server.

The Agenda suite changed only a small bit replacing the Oaktown Renovation by Armed Intimidation, which in combination with High-Profile Target can outright kill a careless runner on three cards in their grip, if you install and double advance it on the previous turn.
