Episode 132 - Blood and Water (Corp)

July 31, 2017

On our agenda:

  • It's a jam-packed corp side of the pack, with 13 cards to discuss!
  • How does Wilfy rate this pack where 100% of the purple cards are bioroids?  Does he have the inside scoop on Loki? Did they go to bioroid daycare together?
  • Obokata Protocol is one of the better agendas to come out recently, and certainly ranks up there with the better 5/3s in the game.  When and where does the panel see it being played?
  • "Success" completes the trifecta of fast advance options from the Jemison identity card's subtitle.  How does this triple stack up against Sacrifice and Audacity, and how does it compare to its closest friend, Red Planet Couriers?
  • Is Whampoa Reclamation the new Jackson, or is another card secretly the best Jackson impersonator in this pack?
  • Mass Commercialisation is a very powerful new economy event for all corps.  How and when will it be utilised?

Episode 130 - Blood and Water (Runner)

July 24, 2017

On our agenda:

- Our ANZAC episode, the original episode 130 has gone missing!  Hopefully we will be able to relocate it soon, and in the meantime, episode 131 is ready to take its place! 

- Wilfy has a brand new award to talk about!  What is it? You'll have to listen to find out.  Hint: he's already won it 8 times before!

- Blood and Water is packed full of cards exploring interesting design space.  Join the panel as we move well and truly into the second half of the Red Sands Cycle.

- Will Alice Merchant do what Omar has so far not quite managed, and emerge as a force in the competitive metagame in and of herself (i.e. not just as a Rebirth target!?)

- Is Jargoniew Mercs the new Plascrete for the new world?  Or does it ask a bit too much to be a staple across different types of decks?

June 26, 2017

(The second part of TD Weyland is coming! Probably next week!)

On our Agenda:

  • Wilfy and Jesse dive into the Estelle Moon HB deck, and how it shaped the metagame at Euros and beyond.  The panel compares Moon decks to CtM, and considers the strengths and weaknesses of this powerful new strategy.

  • This is a very deep pack, and there's lots to talk about with a swathe of powerful cards.
  • The panel discusses the powerful economy engine that Aeneas Informant could become, and the possibilities of Adjusted Matrix and Inversificator to revive Kit as a competitive ID.
  • Big thanks to Alexis Spicer, our new wonderful and glorious editor, who has come on board to help us out with the back end of TWA. Alexis also hosts her own brilliant podcast called Another Click, Another Credit, which you can find at: https://anotherclickanothercredit.podbean.com/  - Check it out!

Episode 125 - Terminal Directive - Brewing with Seidr

June 4, 2017

On our agenda:

  • This week the panel takes a close look at the (allegedly) shady industry that is Seidr Laboratories. 
  • Wilfy takes the principled and predictable position of defending the shadowy dealings of this new corporate behemoth, insisting that we should all move along and there's nothing to see here.
  • Upon closer inspection, the panel uncovers a couple of powerful new agendas, a potentially very busted asset that is now the flavour of the month, and a new campaign that compares favourably to existing options.
  • As is often the case, the ICE leaves much to be desired on the whole, but there may be some sleeper diamonds in the rough.

Episode 124 - Rumbling with Rahim

May 21, 2017

On our agenda:

  • Ayla "Bios" Rahim presents a powerful new option for Shaper players.  Wilfy and Jesse go deep on the comparison with Andromeda, analysing how Ayla is similar to and how she differs from the most consistent criminal ID of all time. Does Ayla's ability synergise better with Shaper's core strategy? Listen in and find out!
  • The double-up devil breakers - the cycle is now complete, but will they see any competitive play?
  • Will Deep Data Mining enable some satisfyingly subterranean R&D exploration, or is it too hard to consistently enable across the course of the game? 
  • Mem chips and Daemons - how do the latest Shaper models stack up?
  • There are some weird old Neutral cards rolling around at the bottom of the runner side of this box - are any of them playable?

Episode 123 - Cambridge and Friends (Terminal Directive Criminal Cards)

May 11, 2017

On our agenda:

  • Jesse and Wilfy take a trip back to New Angeles and get into the mindset of notorious cybercriminal Steve Cambridge.
  • Despite Wilfy being adamant that Steve is a 'bad guy', the panel takes an 'unbiased' look at Steve himself and his array of tools, programs and friends in the Terminal Directive big box.
  • Will the conspiracy breakers see play?  How relevant is their "trash to bypass" ability?
  • Does the Mammon shell bring an entirely new playstyle to blue?
  • Will ICE derezzing and bypassing, and econ denial, be a bigger feature of criminal decks in the future?
  • What are some ways that Jesse and Wilfy can see these new criminal tools making a splash in the competitive metagame?
