June 26, 2017

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

  • This is a very deep pack, and there's lots to talk about with a swathe of powerful cards.

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?

Episode 122 - The News Now Hour

May 2, 2017

On our agenda:

  • The panel takes a step back to look at recent and upcoming developments in the game, including Terminal Directive, Cache Refresh and the MWL.
  • Before their first playthrough, the panel reflects on the structure of the Terminal Directive big box, its place in the ANR card pool and how they rate it as a concept.
  • Cache Refresh, an exciting new format (https://images-cdn.fantasyflightgames.com/filer_public/62/f4/62f4fc98-0ef7-4a24-af2a-48f773f69782/adn-2017-limited-info-sheet.pdf), allows players to try an officially sanctioned limited-card pool format!  Will this be a good way to introduce new players to the game? Will older players embrace it?  Will Jesse and Wilfy be giving it a go?
  • The NAPD Most Wanted List 3.0 shook up the game in a really positive way.  Jesse and Wilfy discuss what the MWL has meant for players, how it has refreshed the game, and what decks they have been trying out since it came into effect. 
  • Shoutout to Alexis "theladywhowasmeantome" Spicer, who has joined our editing group to help us bring you sweet sweet content!
