I know... you probably think that I used the deck name generator to come up with this whole idea. You would dismiss it as a mere meme. You would be wrong. I'm not shouting out my Netrunner mentor PeekaySK just for amusement. This is serious.*

The efficiency of this deck is incredible. Let's go over the numbers together.

  • First, let's talk about Gnat. How did this go through playtesting? It gives you 1 every turn. As efficiently and reliably as humanly possible. Still only quarter as efficient as Valencia, but you have leaner deck that leads to higher consistency. If you do the math, the deck's exactly 10 cards fewer.

  • Duggar's gives you 2.25 cards per . That's 0.25 card more than Wyldside – the card that fueled oppressive Anarch decks for years. And it's even cheaper to install!

  • Windfall gives you 18 per . Not even Prepaid Kate in the days of her biggest glory could dream of that value!

  • Frantic Coding lets you trash 10 cards from your stack in one . Inject only lets you trash 4 cards and was good enough to appear in two World Championship winning decks.

  • Stimhack! It's like Peace In Our Time that doesn't give the Corp 5 credits, forbid running, or cost influence. How is this still not on MWL?

  • Monolith lets you gain in one . That's the highest memory efficiency in the game! Not that you would ever want to install it when you have the most broken console in faction, but it's there.

  • Labour Rights– lets you recur 3 cards back to your stack. You also have Levy AR Lab Access to recur 39 cards. And finally Trope, that lets you put back infinity cards – that's the efficiency this deck is going for.

I'm not saying that will continue to be the the top faction for another three years, but if you do the math on those crazy numbers, that's the result you will get.

*Or maybe this is a meme and I just can't figure out how to put gif in the description.
