I should preface this.

I've only recently started playing and figured I'd have a go at building a deck. I have no experience whatsoever with deck building of any description. With that in mind does anyone have any suggestions/feedback on this Criminal deck?

So far I only have one core set plus What Lies Ahead and Cyber Exodus. I think I may run into issues with MU but I'm not sure how to manage that.

Thanks.

Gabriel Santiago: Consummate Professional (Core)


Total Cards: (45)

Event: (26)
Infiltration (Core) x3
Deja Vu (Core) x2 ■■
Account Siphon (Core) x2

if you are running recursion like deja vu, you don't need to include multiple copies of each breaker, special order is sufficient. either you have recursion, or two copies of each breaker, not both.

that way you can include cards like datasucker, parasites, and forged activation order.

i think what lies ahead includes plascrete? that's better than public sympathy imo.

also it's too bad you only have one desperado, it really is the best console... consider getting doppleganger instead so you can pack 3

also your deck has no code breaker, try to get a gordian blade or yog.

Thanks for that.

I'm thinking if I drop a Diesel and a Corroder then I should have enough influence to splash in a Gordian and maybe a second Stimhack.

I'm going to look at getting a second core set at some point but I figured data packs/expansions made more sense first

My logic behind using Public Sympathy rather than Plascrete was to try to offset any potential brain damage from Stimhack.

I don't want to get into a dopple vs. desperado derailment - but if you only have 1 desperado, and you probably want 3 consoles, then make the deck 1 desperado and 2 dopplegangers.

Doppleganger is a fine and balanced console with a reasonable ability, but unless you're playing it out of faction, or you have a very specific strategy in mind, you'd rather have desperado.

Doppelganger also not really an option at this point as I don't have that data pack yet

But I'll take a look at it when I get there.

I personally prefer Desperado, and would rather proxy 2 than use 3 dopplegangers.

Looking at it again, I'm fairly sure I'm going to run into MU issues.

Not entirely sure how I can work around that.

Since you really need a code gate breaker (or be forced to femme things like enigma and NEXT bronze) why not try adding zu key master? Obviously gordian is better, but key master is 1 less influence and only costs 1 credit to get on the table. Corroder, Faerie and Zu is a 3 credit rig.
