I've been only playing it against my flatmate (no real community in London as far as I can tell), but it's been working pretty well. I always have money when I need it. I always keep the pressure on HQ directly or through SB. With a full breaker suite I can get through almost everything, with the Crypsis and Femme taking care of higher strength code gates.

I haven't had the chance to try this deck against a megaserver deck, as my flatmate hasn't tried out a corp deck like that yet. I get the feeling that I might be missing the burst to go through such a server multiple times. I have been using Data Dealer as an anti-Stimhack, which I find pretty effective when playing against Weyland/NBN with their 1 point agendas, but I'm not sure if that would be enough.

We are considering grabbing a second core so that we can have 4 decks ready at any time. In that case, I would probably drop the 2 Crash Spaces for a Desperado and Bank Job/Sneakdoor Beta.

Any ideas on the deck. Glaring weaknesses I'm overseeing? I've installed octgn and would like to try it out online when I get the chance, but any feed back is appreciated.

I've never used Data Dealer to good effect so I'd trade it out for almost anything.

Also, I don't know if I love Deja Vu in this - you already have Diesel So how about a Gordian Blade (it's awesome) and a Stimhack in their place?

If you're going to use Yog.0, you almost have to run Datasuckers, or else you'll have zero reliable ways around Tollbooths. I'd recommend dropping the Diesels (6 influence is too much for their effect) and put in 3x Datasuckers. This will also help you keep your credits, as Criminals can run though them very fast if they aren't careful.

With the remaining influence from dropping Diesels, I would get 2x Stimhack and another Yog.0. Stimhack wins games, and is a very powerful card late game, where Criminals can start to struggle. Getting a second Yog lets you drop Crypsis entirely (it's only good as a back-up plan) and will make your deck less vulnerable to program destruction and net damage.

Data Dealer and Crash Space are the obvious cards to cut from the deck. I'm also not a fan of Femme Fatale; while she looks great on paper, I've found her to be underwhelming in practice. That said, with only one core set there probably isn't a lot to replace her with, but I'd cut her if you get a second pack for a third Account Siphon or Forged Activation Orders.

Before I put the Deja Vus in the deck, I ran a Gordian blade. After testing the deck a few times, I felt more comfortable with bringing in a Crypsis for the high str code breakers and running a card that will help me replay a critical card at a critical moment.

I have thought about the Datasuckers, but there is a problem with them... MU. Memory management will be much more tough. Right now, I can reliably have a SB and two breakers out throughout the early-mid game, and then drop the SB for the third breaker and a femme (if she's not out already).

Also, I see a general dislike for Diesel. I get the 2-click-for-1-card more argument, but everybody seems to be disregarding the burst potential when you're low on cards. Am I that wrong to think that's important?

I get your point about stimhacks. I was using data dealer to that effect. Yes it costs 1 click more, yes you lose the element of surprise after the first time you use it, and yes it costs an agenda each time, but you get to use it more than once without hurting your hand, and I find it quite efficient against 1-point-agenda corps. I will try a stimhack variant though for sure.

Thanks for the comments, both of you.

I'm trying to start a monthly session in London but the first meetup probably won't be until January. There's also irregular tournaments in St Albans if you live near enough for that. I'd suggest joining the UK netrunner players facebook group https://www.facebook.com/groups/469547203077958/ and that seems to be where we are congregating.

Noted and joined!

St Albans is prob a bit far away for me, but anywhere in the centre or a bit out would be great! I live in Swiss Cottage atm.
