Leela Patel, v. 2

Jul 27 2015

The previous version of my Leela Patel deck had been doing quite well at work—so even though it was 51 cards, I didn’t really know what to get rid of! I eventually decided to get rid of my last Dyson Mem Chip, one copy of Crescentus, and both copies of Symmetrical Visage: I didn’t end up needing much memory, Crescentus seems like it fits with the theme but in practice I never used it, and while Symmetrical Visage is nice, I mostly wanted run-based economy, and the fewer resources I have, the easier it is to float tags.


Here’s the result:

I took it to a tournament on Saturday; unfortunately, it did just as badly as my Cybernetics Division deck, leading to by far my worst result in a tournament. This deck was a lot closer to winning than my corp deck, so I was somewhat unlucky going 1–4 (maybe I went 2–3, I can’t remember for sure which side I won my first game with), but still: I’d been right to feel that I wasn’t sure why I was winning so often with this deck.

I’m going to leave it assembled for a while—I do like the criminal “mess with people” approach, and I still think it’s a decent deck—but I’m going to experiment with a Chameleon deck for a bit.
