This is the deck I took to the Fresno, CA Regionals. I was the only non-Anarch to make the cut, and it didn’t drop a game in Swiss beating a Palana, a PU, Skorp and CtM.
The last few packs have led me away from the classic Off-Campus build, and I think this is a much stronger, faster, more flexible alternative that has better matchups across the board. The prior Achilles heal of that deck was rushy-matchups like Titan and Skorp. Now it’s pretty easy to get into any server turn 1-2 with a combination of Hook/Bitey, Maxwell or Dean/Turtle.
Falsified Credentials is an amazing card for any deck running Pirate stuff, because it allows you to know when you need to run and not waste your stuff only to find out it’s a trap or NGO. It also has the added benefit of money, information and Turtle counters.
Embezzle was also very clutch, especially in matchups like Titan or CtM where you want to try to get important FA or tagging tools out of their hand (and get paid to do so). Worst case it’s free information.
Dorm Computer is the card that gets a lot of head tilts, but it’s soooo good vs Argus, and works great in the CtM matchup where they already have an ARES scored. Can also just avoid the IP Block tag, and invalidates the Data Raven tag if you want to get through.
PAD Tap is just good in general, and even though I didn’t get that many credits off it since most people trashed it on site, it is a nice tempo boost especially when paired with Corporate “Grant”.
Lastly, I think that taking out “real” breakers actually sped it up a little bit, since now you don’t really care about the ice-type or ice-strength. If you can go through your deck once before they threaten game point, you have all the power late game. Every card you draw is econ, and you replenish the biteys/Deans, making it so you can literally get in anywhere at any time.
Spy Camera is real good.
