Episode 29: Clot On My Watch

In this episode In this episode our heroes are reunited once more. Eady has returned safe from a fever-induced trip to the astral plane with news of the coming cycle. Clot is on the horizon but how will this affect the game? We have no idea, but we talk about it anyway because it’s exciting and anyway you’re not my real Dad! You can’t tell me what to do! (Also we talk more about Prepaid Kate, how to score a Government Takeover and Netrunner fan fiction.)



For those of you asking about the Titan deck Eady was talking about:

Titan Trick (49 cards)

Titan Transnational: Investing In Your Future

Agenda (13)
1 Chronos Project
3 Firmware Updates
2 Geothermal Fracking
1 High-Risk Investment
3 Hostile Takeover
3 Project Atlas

Asset (5)
2 Jackson Howard
3 Mark Yale

Upgrade (2)
2 Crisium Grid

Operation (11)
3 Beanstalk Royalties
1 Biotic Labor
1 Fast Track
3 Hedge Fund
3 Trick of Light

Barrier (8)
2 Eli 1.0
3 Fire Wall
3 Ice Wall

Code Gate (6)
3 Enigma
3 Wormhole

Sentry (4)
2 Archer
2 Caduceus

from Deviant on the Something Awful Forums

I have changed the Fast Track for a builder because I didn't find a use for it. Maybe for a Biotic ToL Chronos Project to surprise Maxx?

Giant amounts of bullshit is what this deck does. Mark Yale is known as "the destroyer of maths", with a double advanced piece of ice and you can only need 1 credit to atlas an atlas and ToL it out. Choo choo the atlas train. Sometimes it does it the hard way and you grind out 5 1 pointers. With 4 advancement tokens on Ice you can Biotic double ToL out a 5 pointer for a minimal amount of credits. Yale to the King baby!

And for the other people that were asking...

The New Meta - Scoring a Government Takeover

Barry

"LOL, I see you found the weakness of my Government Takeover in 1 turn. Gimme another go.

Any 1+ point agenda scored and 14 credits.

Jackson on board.

Accelerated Diagnostics, Power Shutdown, Biotic Labor in hand.

  • Click 1: Biotic Labor 
  • Click 2: Power Shutdown everything. 
  • Jackson back Biotic Labor, Interns, Reclamation Order.
  • Click 3: Accelerated Diagnostics to Interns a Jackson, Biotic Labor, Reclamation Order back all your Diagnostics.
  • Jackson back Interns, Interns, Shipment from San San. 
  • Click 4: Accelerated Diagnostics to Interns your 3rd Jackson, Interns Goverment Takeover, Shipment for San San.
  • Jackson back 3 x Shipment from San San
  • Click 5: Accelerated Diagnostics to triple Shipment from San San
  • Click 6: Advance GT and score for the win!
That works, right?"

Joel

"You need a whole bunch of advanced ICE and…

1 Jackson Howard installed, 15 credits, and the following hand:
1x Jackson Howard , 2x Accelerated Diagnostics, 1x Power Shutdown, 1x Government Takeover

  • Click 1: Install Government Takeover
  • Click 2: Play Power Shutdown dumping your entire R&D into Archives
  • Remove Jackson Howard from the game to pull back 2x Trick of Light and 1x Biotic Labor into R&D
  • Click 3: Play Accelerated Diagnostics to play those three cards, advancing Government Takeover 4 times and gaining 2 clicks
  • Click 4: Install Jackson Howard 
  • Remove Jackson Howard from the game to pull back 2x Trick of Light and 1x Biotic Labor into R&D
  • Click 5: Play the other Accelerated Diagnostics to play those three cards, advancing Government Takeover 4 times and gaining 2 clicks
  • Click 6: Gain 1 credit
  • Click 7: Advance Government Takeover
If anyone actually pulls this near-impossible combo off they are my hero eternally and forever."

"In Episode 28 you asked people to send in how to score Government Takeover in 1 turn. Aside from Psychographics nonsense it seems impossible, but the following is how to do it.

  • Have the following on the board: 2 Jackson Howards. 3 Credits
  • Have the following in hand: 2 Accelerated Diagnostics, 1 Power Shutdown
  • Click 1: Power Shutdown your whole R&D. Everyone is fired!
  • Pop a Jackson returning 2 Shipment from SanSan and Interns
  • Click 2: Accelerated Diagnostics playing Interns to return Government Takeover to an unprotected server and then Ship advancements twice to it.
  • Pop your second Jackson return 3 Shipment from SanSan
  • Click 3: Accelerated Diagnostics To advance Government Takeover 6 more times
  • Score Government Takeover

This will put 10 Advancement counters on Government Takeover, so not only can you score it but you can look smug at having over-advanced it while only having 3 credits."

  1. That Titan FA deck Eady was talking about sounds really interesting. Can you publish a list (or a link to one)?

  2. Deck is legal! Not only that but I've done it! Kind of.

    I had an Atlas scored to find the Biotic but otherwise it worked.

    2 things to remember. DO NOT POP JACKSON EARLY! I popped him a half dozen times before learning and finally getting it off. The deck is okay, but would only really work against a massive set up deck or if you get lucky with your pulls.

  3. Could you put up the Government Takeover combo's as a comment, possibly? I'm happy to listen again but it would be a good resource (plus credit where due) to be able to refer back to. Cheers guys.
