Laramy Fisk, v. 0

Sep 21 2015

I’d had some bad experiences playing against Noise decks recently; so, when I saw Laramy Fisk show up, I thought that maybe I could experiment with a Noise-style effect coming from Criminal. Get the corp to draw more than they’re comfortable with: partly I just want to make them feel unsettled, but I’m also hoping to get them agenda flooded, at which point either agendas will build up in their hand or in archives.

At least that’s the happy scenario; the unhappy scenario is that it causes the corp to draw exactly the cards they need, propelling them to an economic advantage, while giving them enough ice to protect the extra agendas! That’s honestly more likely, but hey, at least the effect will encourage me to run a lot.

In addition to the identity, I was definitely going to include three copies of Fisk Investment Seminar. I was thinking I’d use Vigil as my console, but when I was browsing cards, Keyhole caught my eye: he’s a classic combo with Noise, and why wouldn’t he work well with Fisk? I don’t have enough influence for both, though, so I need a criminal console, and Box-E gives me the 2 MU to host Keyhole and the extra hand space for the cards from Fisk Investment Seminar.

When planning my icebreakers, I figured I’d be running more on centrals, so I included both Breach and Passport. And for my emergency all-purpose icebreaker I decided to use Faust, with three copies of Special Order as my tutoring. (It feels pretty weird building a deck without Clone Chip!)

Hades Shard makes sense, both because of Keyhole and because agenda floods can feed agendas into archives as well. Thinking about that, I actually decided to include all three of the shards: Utopia Shard plus Legwork can let me access their entire hand (assuming I don’t force the extra draw), and maybe Eden Shard will act like a couple of Keyhole runs? My emergency countermeasure was two copies of Film Critic, I included a couple each of Forged Activation Orders and Inside Job as generic criminal goodness, and everything else was money.


Here’s the result:
