Deck Club: Prepaid Kate

The very second Deck Club is at hand! This time with the might of Prepaid Kate

The idea of Deck Club is to get people playing classic or less well know decks. I would like you to build either (or both) of the below deck and give it a few games worth of your time. Maybe you know all the ins and outs of Prepaid Kate or maybe this is the first time you have heard about it. Either way we would love to hear about your experiences:
  • What did you like/dislike about it?
  • What tweaks would you make?
  • Did it make a particularly memorable game?
  • Or send anything else you would like to share to runlastclick@gmail.com
This time you have two options. One is Eady's Atman version and one is stolen from our friend Zack (which was inspired by calimsha's deck) which has no AI breakers. Either way you are mulliganing for Prepaid and drawing all the time. Don't worry too much about going over your hand size. Same Old Thing and Clone Chip can be a real Swiss Army Knifes when you have a full bin.

Draw into making lots money; install a Self-modifying Code and start running. Try and use Kate's ability and Prepaid credits every turn for maximum value! The Levy AR Lab Access is used most games to cycle your economy back into your deck once your programs and hardware are out. Thinning your deck so those credits come up sooner.

For the Atman variant, Eady recommends getting a Datasucker out as soon as you can. Setting your Atmans at zero and four. Then having a jolly old time running through the corps ICE.

For even more tip listen to Episode 25 starting about 1:04.00.
