Unbreakable v0.2

Satellite Uplink 512

Rough outline of a dumb idea.

If Mother Goddess is the only thing rezzed she's not a Sentry, Code Gate or Barrier so very little can touch her. Everything is based around that, with Blue Sun a big improvement on the archetype by allowing me to play other Ice and then return them Ice to hand once I'm ready to move into the Unbreakable phase of the game. Universal Connectivity Fee is also a useful addition as it's a Trap that doesn't automatically trash itself so I get permanent taxation from it (and can protect Mother from Inside Job).

Ideal world = unbreakable Mother Goddess over HQ to secure an Off The Grid remote server and then you slow march your Government Takeover. Your enemies are AI breakers and Femme Fatale.

I'm not running the Oversight AI side of Blue Sun but do have Adonis Campaign and Asteroid Belt (the poor man's Oversight/Curtain Wall), and then a random melange of Assets and Upgrades to provide economy.

It's almost certainly jank but I will have a giggle trying to make it work, and actually most of the cards in here (outside of the central Jankgasm) are proven to be good in other decks.

Femme isn't a huge problem, as you can bounce the MOther Goddess to get rid of it.

Patch handles Atman...

@tomdidiot because AI breakers and Femme Fatale weren't enough of a problem?

Femme off London Library for the win! ;)

I've been wanting to do this for a while, but I was thinking Jinteki. You get more trap ice, and Himitsu-Bako works very well. Chimera is also possibly a good option.

@whirrun I was casting about for the right faction to play and think Blue Sun is very good, which put me in Weyland. Off The Grid is also a good card for the Goddess deck.

Jinteki has slightly more traps but they're pretty inconsequential I think. The Himitsu Bako point is a good one, though. I might quickly switch my random Shinboi out to turn those Paper Walls into Himitsu.

-2 Paper Wall, -1 Shinobo, +2 Himitsu-Bako, +1 Lotus Field

Does Excalibur and other untyped Ice not maybe have a place in this? I kinda like the idea. I like it very much in Harmony Medtech (3 point rush deck). Agree that Jinteki might be the right home for this.

@Badeesh Excalibur and the ilk are exactly what I was looking for when I made the deck, but in most cases I decided that it wasn't worth include a Data Mine/Lab Pup/Excalibur just for the sake of having a piece of Ice when Blue Sun allows me to play actual ETR Ice and then bounce it back.

You can make the Mother Goddess idea work in other IDs but I think it forces you to play almost a completely different deck. You'll be playing those sorts of things in that deck, but I'd rather have an Asteroid Belt that can ETR a few times then give me 9 credits to rez Off The Grid with when I switch to Unbreakable Mode.

Ahh didn't think about bouncing stuff back to re-invigorate the untypedness of the Mother's. Blue Sun is so dam versatile. Understand what you thinking.

If anyone's interested, I went and built the Jinteki version of the deck. It's quite different, and is often more of an excalibur deck in reality. I don't know how to link, but I recently published it. It's called Mythical Breakthrough.
