Haarpsi: Mwanza X Punitive

APoorRich 126

Inspired by the latest and newest Mwanza City Grid, Haarpsichord studios, your favourite division of entertainment knows no bounds when churning out your favourite TV shows faster than you can binge 'em.

Mwanza City Grid is at the heart of this entertainment giant, and it gives +3 card access to the runner ... wait what? You ask, while jumping in to snatch away that sweet SSL Endorsement and/or Degree Mill.

Nope. because Mwanza City Grid is a double-edged sword... even sharper than Excalibur. Not only does it grant the corp +8 credits for the accessed cards, but it opens up the runner to threats like Snare!, like News Team and the worst of all if not ironic, AGENDAS.

Punitive Counterstrike is there to flatline the runner. You'll need a sizeable econ lead yes, which is what the baits of NGO Front and combos of Award Bait and Reversed Accounts are for, not to mention the classic NBN Closed Accounts.

I've had a couple of comments from my NGN netrunner friends now, and it seems there seems to be the debate of swapping out Tollbooth for Endless EULA. Yes, there is a 2 credit rez cost benefit for Endless EULA, but Tollbooth not only literally taxing but it is also the only code gate in the deck. 6 to break + 3 tax for Black Orchestra, 5 to break + 3 tax for Gordian blade, just to list a few.

tl;dr HOW TO WIN: - allow runners to multi-access your SSL Endorsement and Degree Mill. remember they can't steal more than one agenda a turn so you'll be safe. Preferably you also have a Snare! - Pop the Punitive Counterstrike, beat the trace with your econ lead and kill the runner.
