Let Us Prey - Antwerp GNK 1st

Identity

Description by the author: Slowriffs 393

This is the runner deck that I used to win the Antwerp GNK with. I've always been a Leela fan and I'm pretty happy that I finally managed to take a first place with her!

With Crowdfunding now in the game I felt very excited to try run-based Criminal again. And this deck is for the most part simply a run based Leela deck. But lets address the elephant in the room:

  • Prey: This card was an idea from @Manicmoleman, saying that you could trash crowdfundings to get rid of ICE, and then get them back right away. And I felt this was genius. It doesn't seem that great but let me list some ICE that you can just destroy with pretty much no effort: Kakugo, Endless Eula, Tsurugi, Thimblerig, Enigma... and BORDER CONTROL. Since prey doesn't trigger after the first ICE or anything you can just keep going until you pass a Border Control, and then they have to pop it or you just remove it. No need to run the entire remote twice. Especially good if Border Control is on the outer ices.

Other card choices:

  • Beth: Gives all that you need really, draw is slow in criminal and Beth provides sorely needed efficiency.
  • Kati Jones: People keep saying it's too slow, but that's the entire point. You cannot always dictate the tempo of the game and Kati keeps you in the game when you cannot run anymore. Essential for certain matchups like Mti.
  • Hostage: allows the above to picks to actually work. Really happy this is back.
  • Dorm Computer: Thanks bantwins.
  • Tycoon: This one is actually very efficient and I didn't feel like spending influence on Corroder. Also some mild Pad Tap synergy.
  • No casts and hotels: In this Argus heavy meta I just want to avoid any tempo hit at all if possible. The resources are cheap and give money (or are trashed for Prey).

That's it, this deck is a blast. Leela is back!

(I had to publish this deck with old cards because nrdb doesn't allow you to publish with System Core cards yet)
