Harmony 6-Agenda

My strategy is to score 2 3-pt agendas while pressuring the runner not to run on remotes for fear of flatline. Shi.Kyu is amazing in this deck as it requires the runner to steal 3 agendas instead of 2 to win. Chairman Hiro is great support for brain and net damage and his greatest drawback almost never counts against him in this deck since all agendas are 3 points and it's 6 to win. Ultimately, the strength of this deck is that you're playing to two agendas and the runner is playing to three.

Obviously, the weakness is R&D, but the low agenda density, x3 Snare!, and The Future Perfect help prevent R&D wins.

With the singleton Wall of Thorns being the only ice in your deck that gets decent value out of Priority Requisition, this might be an instance where Executive Retreat is a better option. Occasionally you might have to shuffle a good hand back into R&D, but I think more often it'll be worth it to mix things up and keep the runner on their toes, especially since you're not running Precognition or Shiro.

Now that you mention it, it would be a good idea, if for no other reason than for breaking R&D lock. I guess I shied away because Exec Retreat has burned me

Also, I would like to find space for at least x2 Neural EMP and maybe another Caprice. I'm not sure how Mushin is going to work, but it should be interesting.

I built a similar deck, untested, but ya, on the surface Exec Retreat seems much stronger. This is going to be a roller coaster of a build! Can't wait to try it.

Going to be trying this myself. Was running with the same basic build concept, though I was struggling with certain specifics.

Edit
One thing I do like with this deck is how it stops Archive runs to charge data sucker.

I like this deck and will be trying something similar but with 3 matrix analyzers and 2 cerebral overwriters.

Edit: oh and the big ass deflector sentry too to get extra mileage out of shi.kyu and priority req

I don't know that I'd run the Analyser (unless you're also running Neotoko Grid - funsies!) but Susano on R&D or HQ should be hilarious.

Also if you are going to include Inazuma the. You should also run juicy ice for them to run into. At the moment the only option would be fenris and to me it seems a bit of a waste

You can also use it to force the runner to access a server by not rezzing any other ICE behind it (confirmed by Lukas in another thread).

I like the Agg secretary, but I need to influence to focus on the flatline threat. Why Susanoo?

I was thinking it would be nice to have if I really need to score out. It can probably be cut, but it's taxing enough to give me a scoring window. Once you get the first 3 pointer you're at match point and the game gets really crazy.

Edit: Mushin No Shin gets amazing at match point. Celebrity gift makes it even better. Since you're able to get to match point so quickly the runner has to make bad choices.

My reasoning was that a smaller deck needed to be more focused in its strategy. I want to force the runner to run before they're ready, running into Fenris and Neural Katana, maybe a Cerebral Overwriter. If they don't run, I can score while they get their mimic or other sentry breaker. Putting in Agg Sec would mean replacing the Paper Walls with Himitsu Bako as well.

The aggsec is just another way to get a scoring window. It could be cut... but I won't know for sure till I actually play with the deck

Let me know how it goes, I'll be playing this, my Caprice Off the Grid deck, and another Jinteki flatline deck.

Maybe worth playing a 1 or 2 of Shi Kyu. I'm not super hip to it because I won't have tons of money to throw around. If I'm dropping 9 on Susanoo, it's in hopes to protect a 5/3. Otherwise, he's a great target for Priority Requisition and a great piece of taxing ICE.

Honestly, with this deck, you can't afford NOT to play Shi Kyu. It changes the game significantly when the runner has to score 50% more than the corp to win. If it's good in any deck, it's a damage-focused Harmony Medtech.

That makes sense, and I don't disagree with you. My thought process was that if I can't do enough damage to flatline them, they would never take the -1 agenda. That means pumping 4-6 credits in when they hit it. Plus, it's a 0 trash from R&D which increases the chance of them catching an agenda on an R&D access.

You only need to land it once. Also, Future Perfect has a good chance of not being stolen from R&D, additional is that with a single Shi Kyu in archives you can seriously hamper Data Sucker charging, as until they take it as an agenda, you can keep poking them for what ever credits you feel you can afford.

That's true, it's going to be very expensive to use if you have no other flatline threat and they can just take damage and draw back up. That's a big reason why I included brain damage though, it helps make them take that -1 point.

This deck is going to be so much fun

I took a similar approach. Really, the brain damage just lowers the credits required to make the card a threat, but it's still going to cost a decent amount until they take the point.

To the above post, future perfect is... perfect in this deck.

EDIT: God forbid your opponent is playing net damage mitigation. Deus X laughs at Shi Kyu.

Deus X sucks against damage Jinteki in general, but yes, it really hurts Shi Kyu.
