Here are my winning deck lists from the Newington, CT regional tournament event held this past Saturday evening. There were a total of 10 people in the event. After the first 3 rounds of swiss, the bottom 2 people dropped out so we all voted to just skip the 4th round of swiss and immediately start the top-8, for the sake of time.

I went undefeated in matches in the swiss rounds and finished seeded first. I ended up tying my first round match in the top 8 by scores of 10-6, 6-10 and advanced automatically as the higher seeded player. The semifinals I won 10-3, 10-4 and the finals I won 10-4, 5-4 (we stopped after I scored the 5th agenda point as that was all I needed to win the match).

I gave the entry to world's to the 2nd place finisher, as I am not going to the worlds event in MN in November and he really wanted to go, so I hope he does well in my place

All-in-all, a fun event and I am definitely looking forward to future tournaments.

I know a few of the other Top 4 frequent BGG here, so hopefully they can/will post their deck lists here as well in case anyone is interested.

Nice lists!

So whats the reason for only running 2 commercialization? Seems like this card is amazing enough with the new ID to run 3, maybe by cutting a hedge fund or beanstalk.

Turns out I didn't end up advancing ice as much as I originally thought I would during play-testing. If I had, then having an extra commercialization would have been better and was what I originally had - 3 commercialization and no beanstalks. As I play-tested and saw I wasn't advancing ice as much, the commercializations didn't help me gain credits, so I brought in the 2 beanstalks and dropped 1 commercialization.


The real mistake is that I was using the new Wayland identity instead of the original identity for this deck considering I didn't advance much ice. What I should have done was just use the original identity for the extra credit gain on transactions.

Interesting choice on the Battering Ram for Gabe - did the memory costs never cause an issue? I just assume that Corroder is strictly better.

Corroder is better in my opinion as well, but I ran 3 Crypsis as he was the primary breaker I wanted to get every game and use. Turns out there were a couple HB players and 1 other Wayland player, so having the Battering Ram helped in this case.

Memory only was an issue one game for me when I wanted to I had sneakdoor beta and a crypsis out and I wanted to install a battering ram and couldnt because I didnt have my console out. Other than that it never really proved to be an issue. I could run crypsis + battering ram + femme fatale no problem even without Desperado out on the table.
