I want to create some semi competitive decks that are fun to pilot.
For the Corp I am running Midseason Replacements & Psychographics with the dream being to over advance a Beale. Alternative win con is Scorched Earth.
For the runner I just feel uninspired so looking for some ideas please!
All suggestions welcome and I own pretty much all the current released cards.
Leela patel is super fun and is the only Crim ID i have fun Piloting.
Shes still all about early hq pressuer but the fact that she bounces cards when agendas are scored AND stolen makes for some pretty interesting games.
I just played a game against HB ETF where i was had a good early game scoring 4 points in the first two turns. (Click one sure gamble click two install hq interface click three install sneakdoor click four SB run for two ABTS and then bounce all their ice.) but i got locked out mid game. so i built up kati jones money for three turns by this point they had 2 ice on rnd. then they score their 3rd ABT and i bounce the outermost ice on rnd install rnd interface and inside job rnd for the win.
shes hard to predict and the corp peels back its own defenses and resources every time they score or you steal.
the list above took a tournament its super fun.
The most original runner IDs are Exile, Professor, Nasir, the new Quetzal MaXx Valencia and Ed Kim.
Silhouette can also be a lot of fun with all those Jinteki or game with lots of installed card.
Chaos Theory using Doubles, Power Nap and Oracle May for economy is the most fun runner deck I've played with. It's a mid-range tournement deck that's about to get a big, big boost when Clot hoses fast advance decks.
A long discussion about it here: http://forum.stimhack.com/t/ct-string-theory-doubles-oracle-....

Thanks for the replies.
Chaos Theory/Oracle May is the deck I have been running @ store champs. It's alot of fun as you say!
Quite like the sound of that Leela deck. Think that will be my next runner venture for casual play.
If anyone knows any fun decks around big digs with medium I'm all ears :-)

If you want something that feels like it shouldn't work, but does; look here:
If you want to take it a step further it gets a little less consistent, but far more "surprisy"
So long as you stick to cheap programs and the economy engine (don't put really expensive programs in, femme being the exception for its value), you can make it your own pretty easily with just a couple switches.
And honestly, the newest one out looks a bit better (its got most of the cards I found valuable and looks a bit tighter):

I've had this problem when I started playing. There was no Runner that would be fun to play for me, I had no clue how to build a Runner deck, it was terrible.
And then stealth happened. Actually, silencer and ghost runner happened. I stated playing Kate with Dagger and later with Refractor and feel in love instantly. For done reason I enjoy playing very traditional Runner, the one that just tried to get money and run efficiently, and stealth is great for that.
What I'm trying to say is that you have to try different archetypes until you find something that fits your preference. There's no science to it, only trial and error.
