this is not a fully tricked out deck. also some of the terrain might be missing. At least the T6. 21 out of 124 is a bit low given that there are several weak terrain. The basic strat is to use hard hitting ships that need few resources to operate.

Link for the win!
I have never been able to get a decent Scorp deck going. Seems the time 'building' your ships puts you at a disadvantage early on.

Part of the trick is to play upgrades the turn AFTER you play the ship.

A ship with E9 Future ship attached is a magnet for trouble. But you can slap on future ship right before you get ready to attack.

It's because the equip has no engagement cost thus it is considered to come into play engaged. So my turn order can look like:

Turn 1: play terrain
Turn 2: play ships
Turn 3: equip ships, then attack with the shiny new weapons
