Hi all,

I tend to find when I build runner decks I put too much "cool fancy stuff" and not enough of the basics. On the 1 in 5 games when it all comes together great but on the other 4...

So I've decided to go back to basics with the following:

Ed Kim no frills (45 cards)

Edward Kim: Humanity's Hammer

Event (11)
2 Diesel
2 I've Had Worse
2 Knifed
2 Special Order
3 Sure Gamble

Hardware (5)
2 HQ Interface
3 Vigil

Resource (11)
3 Armitage Codebusting
3 Daily Casts
2 Earthrise Hotel
3 Liberated Account

Icebreaker (7)
2 Corroder
2 Mimic
2 Yog.0
1 ZU.13 Key Master

Program (11)
2 D4v1d
3 Datasucker
2 Imp
2 Incubator
2 Medium

So I've had a fair bit of success with this. The basic idea is to put a lot of early pressure on the corp with aggressive running - Kim's ability helps here as you can kill an operation out of r&d then run again.

I've found an early incubator can be great for forcing the corp to purge every 4 or 5 turns with no real work from me. If they don't purge I can drop a medium and see several cards out if r&d (ideally combined with a well timed knifed)

I'm feeling like I've maybe gone a bit too basic and could do with a few tricks. In the last few games I've really wished I had a parasite.

I was thinking maybe lose the diesels and add a third I've had worse plus a clone chip. What should I cut for parasite? If anything?

Any comments appreciated.
