And yet, I still bother.

So, I have come here for advice on my Chaos Theory deck. The general premise is to get set up with a cheap rig and run excessively in the process. Faerie is the only sentry breaker, but so far, I have had no issues with running short on them. Also, I want as few expensive cards as possible.

I have been using Crescentus to derez any expensive ice that I would typically use Femme on, but I am wondering if I could get more efficiency overall with Datasuckers. Also, I have run into minor issues with memory with the SMCs floating around. So I am looking into two memory options as well.

My decklist looks like this at present.

1.3.2.5.5 Chaos Fae-Recursion test

Chaos Theory: Wünderkind (Cyber Exodus)

Event (13)
3x Dirty Laundry (Creation and Control)
2x Indexing (Future Proof)
2x Infiltration (Core Set)
1x Quality Time (Humanity's Shadow)
3x Sure Gamble (Core Set)
2x Tinkering (Core Set)

Hardware (7)
**2x Akamatsu Mem Chip (Core Set) or CyberSolutions Mem Chip (Fear and Loathing)**
3x Clone Chip (Creation and Control)
2x Plascrete Carapace (What Lies Ahead)

Resource (8)
2x Daily Casts (Creation and Control)
3x Sacrificial Construct (Core Set)
3x Same Old Thing (Creation and Control)

Icebreaker (7)
2x Corroder (Core Set) ••••
3x Faerie (Future Proof) ••••• ••••
1x Gordian Blade (Core Set)
1x ZU.13 Key Master (What Lies Ahead)

Program (5)
**2x Crescentus (A Study in Static) •• or Datasucker (Core Set) ••**
3x Self-modifying Code (Creation and Control)

15 influence spent (max 15)

40 cards (min 40)
Cards up to Fear and Loathing

Deck built on NetrunnerDB.

My question is, which cards should go in each slot? Or are there better options I am overlooking?

Just for funsies, I have included this poll:
Poll
1. Given the choices below, which would you choose for this deck?
2x Crescentus
2x Datasucker
1x Crescentus and 1x Datasucker
2. Given the choices below for memory, which would you choose?
2x Akamatsu Mem Chip
2x CyberSolutions Mem Chip
1x Akamatsu Mem Chip and 1x CyberSolutions Mem Chip

The reason I choose 2x Akamatsu is simply for speed. You already start with +1 MU from the identity. 4 credits for 2mu is going to slow you down I think.

Sentries with stoping power are generally expensive to rez. I would go with Cresentus and throw in a Levy AR Lab Access to increase recurrence.

Is Jinteki that popular in your meta? if not, then I'd drop the Infiltrations.

My suggestion:

- 2x infiltration
- 3x Self-modifying code
- 2x Same old thing
- 1x Gordian blade

+ 3x Test run
+ 2x Personal workshop
+ 1x Levy AR lab access
+ 1x Quality time
+ 1x Cyber-cypher (goes on R&D)


Also i´d go for 1 crescentus and 1 datasucker

I think you should remove MU cards. You play Chaos Theory, have no Magnum Opus, no Datasuckers, no Cloaks, no Medium/Nerve Agent - nothing MU-hungry. I'd also use 3x Cyber-cypher as your decoder - it is cheap to install and cheap to use, fitting very well your rush playstyle.

Since this deck tends to favor speed over efficiency, I would go one step further and play Inti instead of Corroder, with 3x Datasucker. Also, Stimhack which goes will with SMC and inefficient breakers. Then your rig will be Faerie + Inti + ZU + Datasucker + Datasucker and you don't need additional MU. Your entire rig costs 3 credits total.

2x Tinkering (Core Set)

Hardware (5)
3x Clone Chip (Creation and Control)
2x Plascrete Carapace (What Lies Ahead)

Resource (8)
2x Daily Casts (Creation and Control)
3x Sacrificial Construct (Core Set)
3x Same Old Thing (Creation and Control)

Icebreaker (7)

edit: Clone Chip doesn't strike me absolutely vital in this deck. More economy instead?

I can see utility in the clone chips. You will potentially need to recur the Faeries a lot, and they could be very useful versus power shutdown. With the super cheap programs you could even use one to get through a Grim; i.e., let him kill a program and then just clone chip it back after you are past the Grim.

edit: not sure I see the reason for so many Stimhacks. Everything is very cheap in this deck. Maybe -3 Stimhack, +2 diesel, +1 medium? Or getting some Maker's Eyes in there. Very nice to follow-up a particularly juicy Indexing (2 or more agendas) with a Maker's Eye.
