Chameleon, v. 0

Jul 30 2015

When The Underway came out, both Chameleon and Hyperdriver caught my eye. So, of course, I decided to build a deck that incorporated both of them! Here’s the initial version:



Hayley Kaplan: Universal Scholar

Event (12)

  • 2x Diesel
  • 3x Notoriety
  • 2x Quest Completed •• ••
  • 3x Sure Gamble
  • 2x The Maker’s Eye

Hardware (14)

  • 2x Clone Chip
  • 2x Cyberfeeder • •
  • 2x CyberSolutions Mem Chip
  • 3x Dinosaurus
  • 3x LLDS Processor
  • 2x Plascrete Carapace

Resource (10)

  • 2x Armitage Codebusting
  • 2x Daily Casts
  • 1x Ice Carver •••
  • 2x Kati Jones
  • 3x Personal Workshop

Icebreaker (6)

  • 3x Chameleon
  • 1x Deus X
  • 1x Gordian Blade
  • 1x Sharpshooter

Program (8)

  • 2x Datasucker • •
  • 2x Hyperdriver
  • 2x Parasite •• ••
  • 2x Sahasrara

15 influence spent (max 15)
50 cards (min 45)


The Chameleon side of the deck is to have it ready to install with Personal Workshop, and to match strength with Dinosaurus / LLDS Processor / Ice Carver / Datasucker. And the Hyperdriver side of the deck is Notoriety and Quest Completed.

Having said that: even as I wrote it up, I couldn’t convince myself that Hyperdriver will work. I want to play it that way for a week or so, but I imagine that I’ll get rid of those cards, at which point my tentative plan is to also get rid of the mem chips and switch to Chaos Theory. (Or maybe to Kate if I decide I’m more comfortable with 45 cards than with 40 and that I need money and/or link.) We’ll see.

And I’m not super optimistic that it will work in general; but I figure I’m way too conservative in general with icebreakers, so this will try to force me out of my shell. (And it will probably horribly backfire!)
