Spark Agency, v. 2

Jan 18 2016

In the previous version of my Spark Agency deck, I get much benefit out of Team Sponsorship; that was partially my fault, I suspect, but I just wasn’t feeling it. I was feeling Turtlebacks, but a draw, an install, and two credits means that I have to install four more servers for one to break even, and while my deck is horizontal, it’s not that horizontal.

So that gave me five slots and five influence to play around with. Cyberdex had been useful, so I added a second one; I’d seen some games where City Surveillance had been quite annoying, so I threw in a couple of those; and I added two more ads and used up my influence with an Adonis Campaign and an Eve Campaign.

City Surveillance cost too much to rez and to protect, though, and I’m really not built around tags, so I got rid of those, adding in a third Jackson and a second Product Placement.


Here’s the result:

It went 2 and 2 at the tournament this month; that’s not awesome, and there were too many situations where my ice in particular didn’t feel right. I’m starting to get comfortable playing without much ice if I’m doing fast advance; but I’m not really playing that deck like fast advance much of the time. Also, Turnpike makes absolutely no sense in this deck.

So: changes ahead! And I have nine cards on the Most Wanted List to deal with. Which could be bad, but the Adonis Campaign and Eve Campaign aren’t really doing me much good; that’s half the difference, at least.

  1. […] the third iteration of my Spark Agency deck, I mostly wanted to take the prior version (which felt pretty solid to me) and make it Most Wanted List compliant. I had three Astroscripts, […]
