Are there enough AP type Ice in the game at this time to justify 2 copies of Deus X in my Shaper deck?

The primary value of Deus X is preventing net damage from this like Snare. It's rare that you use it to break an AP ice, however it can deal with the occasional Oversighted Janus or unexpected Neural Katana. 1 in your deck for SMC or Clone chiping is generally enough.

Probably not. Deus X is really meant to be a one-of silver bullet that you search out with Test Run or (better) Self-Modifying Code as needed.

I think he just searched for AP and got all the trAPs and datAPike.



Deus X Ridicula:

Icebreaker, Strength 10

Trash: Break any number of subroutines on a piece of ice with the letters A and P in its name or type.

Oh, weird, I've no idea how those ended up on the list. CLEARLY I should have glanced at it before posting. That's what I get for checking BGG while at work.

Even if you do face an unusually high amount of big AP ice, Clone Chip is a much better option than a 2nd Deus X since it can also recur your SMCs or any programs that get trashed by the corp.

I really like deusX. It's a big FU to jinteki. It's not mostly for ice, but for snares and..RONIN.

Just don't rely too much on DeusX, in Stronger Together a Chum'ed Janus (EG on awakening center with no chance to jack out) goes all the way to 11.

People often forget Deus X has strength 10. Corporate Troubleshooter can mess with people relying on Deus X

The other thing people forget is Dino can host DeusX, as its not an AI, so if you are using SMC/CloneChip and have an empty dino out, you can get the +2Str for free!

I value Deus X more for his net damage prevention than for his AP breaking capacities.

If you have clone chip, test run, SMC and scavenge, you should be playing only one.
But if you play a shaper deck without recursion (THE HERESY !), you can play 2 depending on deck spacing.
