:rotato: reg (1st at Brighton SC)

Shmeguy 1475

This bloated pile of 46 cards (checkmate 45 purists) won the first store champs of the year at Dice Saloon - 24 players.

The only loss of the day was in Swiss to Mike Prosser's rewiring combo CI that Punitived me out of nowhere lol. I think the deck performed well because it was fast enough compared to Valencia that I was able to close out a lot of games quickly, before the Corp had much time to develop a secure board state. The extra draw and heap tutoring gets around classic Anarch problems, but presents some issues when facing Skorpios or PU which I thankfully did not.

Shout out to my Worlds dad Stephen Ball for sending me MaxX builds which this is based on. My main addition were the 2 Femmes, which are pretty good answers for some of the ICE in the top corps: Raven and Booth in CTM, Mythic stuff in CI combo, Excalibur in Agfusion etc. The 46th slot is a panic Citadel Sanctuary, my fave double duty tech card that is necessary for the combo MU and pretty okay against CTM to stay ahead on tempo.

Overall fun deck, decided to take it despite thinking lock Hayley was probably stronger, but is such a snooze fest in my opinion. Luckily, it turned out to be strong whilst playing good old wholesome Netrunner so I highly recommend it.

So proud of my little boy. Although I don’t think I was given enough credit.

Nice! I love me a good MaxX deck.

Also, what the hell does the prize support look like this SC season? FFG hasn't even announced them yet, and SCs are already started.

Is this the deck you played in the SSCI as well? Congrats on the finish!

I believe Rebirth can help also against Maxx's enemy No. 1, i. e. Scorpios. Rebirth into Quetzal can give you another shot after your fracters have been removed. Most of the currently used barriers have one sub, except Tithonium.
