I have only played a handful of games with the starter decks. I WANT to play much many more games, but this week has been rough. I was able to put together the first version of my Corp deck and my Runner deck. For now, I only have one core set, so please keep that in mind. I would love advice, crits, suggestions, derisive laughter, whatever you care to give.

Corp-wise, I'm not sure Adonis Campaign is going to be enough bit-gain by itself. It also seems to me like Ghost Branch + Hunter + Ichi might not be enough tagging to make Scorched Earth work, although then again it might; Ghost Branch can land tags that will stick to your turn, but the other two are only going to stick a tag if the runner's not careful.

On the runner side, why both Battering Ram and Corroder? I could see dropping Battering Ram for Corroder, but not why you'd want both (when you're only running 2x of the breakers for the other types).

I'm a big fan of Special Order; with only 2x sentry and code-gate breakers, no search for them, and no Crypsis to fill the gap, you're likely to find yourself stymied by an ICE you can't draw the breaker for (even with the Diesels).

All that's forced, moving on.

Why do you want tags with Ghost Branch?
No PAD campaign?

No OOF Ice, which means you trust those bioroids

What are you tutoring for with Aggressive Negotiation?
Scorched Earth? Is that why you want to tag the runner?
What are you advancing twice with mirrormorph? Certainly not Agenda.
No Hedge Fund?

Corp seems credit poor and unfocused. Sure, no-one will expect a HB deck to come after them physically, but I'm not sure it will succeed in doing so either.

Crash Space is good for ditching tags on your turn, but what about ditching tags on the Corp's turn? (aka, where's Decoy?)

At least you have money in the Runner deck. With no way to tutor in icebreakers, you may find you have the wrong tool for the job, but that's what Tinkering is for, though you have a limited number of those.

Runner deck looks fine except for above questions.

Shipment from Kaguya is the "advance two cards" one; Shipment from Mirrormorph is the multiple-installs one.

Eric, name the date/time you want to test your decks. You can do the same for mine. I'm pretty sure I see the weaknesses in the corp deck, but I don't know about your runner...

My bad. Despite all I've put in so far, some of the names are still throwing me.

Crash space alone is probably enough. It can be trashed to prevent 3 meat damage, so it's a reasonable answer to SE if they tag you on their turn. They're both 2 influence cards, so it's tough to fit in both.

Crash Space is also a resource so it can be trashed before the Scorched Earth arrives. It makes things more expensive for the Corp in any case though.

I agree, but out of faction there's only so much influence you can devote to guarding against TnB. Trashing CS is an action as well, so if you're playing with a 4+ hand size and they have to double scorch then tagging you on their turn can't be an action.

Sure, it can be trashed... but that takes a click.

If a Corp burns your Crash space, the response is to always keep a full grip.
