Spark Agency, v. 0

Nov 17 2015

I got Spark Agency when we divvied up the corp Data and Destiny identities at work; I like hurting my opponent as the corp, so it seemed like a natural fit, though looking through the cards I’m actually getting a bit curious about SYNC as well.

When building the deck, I initially went into too many directions. I thought about going horizontal with a bunch of traps and no remote ice; I thought about having a bunch of tags. But when I threw in all the cards that came to my mind, I had close to 100 cards, so obviously I need to figure out a plan and pare things down.

I’ve been doing a netdecked NEH fast advance deck recently; I’m not very good at it yet, which I’m taking a sign that I have a lot to learn and that I should stick with that until I learn how to play it. So I decided to ultimately give up on the punishment / fake ideas that I was floating around, and stick with a fast advance that’s more horizontal because of all the advertisements.

Speaking of advertisements, I only included one Adonis Campaign and no copies of either Eve Campaign, Launch Campaign, or Rex Campaign. But I have 3 each of PAD Campaign, Pop-up Window, and Special Offer, and one Product Placement. And I’m doing Team Turtlebacks; I also three copies of Rebranding Team to try to turn those cards into advertisements, plus a couple copies of Media Blitz to let me activate Rebranding Team when it gets stolen.

It’s light on ice (16 of them, but 3 are Special Offer that is only econ plus (probably) a one-time 1-credit Runner tax); I’m hoping that that will help me commit to advancing quickly. 54 cards for now, though of course I’ll bring it down soon.

  1. […] initial version of my Spark Agency deck did quite well. Which, I guess, isn’t a big surprised: I’d been playing a netdecked […]
