#Netrunner

Always be running…

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the upcoming release of two World Championship Decks for Android: Netrunner!

Featuring gorgeous full-bleed art and new visual treatments of their identity cards, the 2015 Android: Netrunner World Champion Corp Deck and 2015 Android: Netrunner World Champion Runner Deck are card-for-card recreations of the decks played by 2015 Android: Netrunner World Champion Dan D'Argenio. That means that these decks offer newer players an opportunity to experiment with some of the game's greatest synergies, as well as a host of its most popular and enduring cards.

Whether you use them as guides to building and playing with top-level strategies or you assimilate their fully tournament-legal cards into other decks, these Engineering the Future and Valencia decks offer a beautiful means to expand both your collection and your knowledge of the game!

Engineering the Future

The 2015 Android: Netrunner World Champion Corp Deck features fifty of the strongest Corp cards playable in Haas-Bioroid. These cards are collected from the whole of the Android: Netrunner data vault and presented with extended, full-bleed art, as well as a visually reimagined Engineering the Future identity card.

Identity (1):
Haas-Bioroid: Engineering the Future
Agenda (9):
Accelerated Beta Test (3), Project Vitruvius (1), Global Food Initiative (2), NAPD Contract (3)
Asset (9):
Adonis Campaign (3), Eve Campaign (3), Jackson Howard (3)
Ice (17):
Architect (3), Eli 1.0 (3), Ichi 1.0 (3), Ichi 2.0 (2), Turing (3), Tollbooth (1), Enigma (2)
Operation (5):
Archived Memories (2), Hedge Fund (3)
Upgrade (9):
Ash 2X3ZB9CY (3), Caprice Nisei (2), Breaker Bay Grid (3), Cyberdex Virus Suite (1)

Assembled from seventeen pieces of ice, numerous assets, and a number of highly impactful upgrades, the 2015 Android: Netrunner World Champion Corp Deck excels at the "glacier" strategy, which focuses on protecting your installed agendas—and all your servers—with deep layers of ice and other defenses. Although this type of deck takes tremendous skill and a great deal of practice to fully master, it is also one that newcomers can quickly learn to pilot with a reasonable measure of success.

Valencia

Among its fifty-one cards, the 2015 Android: Netrunner World Champion Runner Deck features many of the newest and most colorful additions to the Runner's side of Android: Netrunner. Each of these cards receives the same fantastic, full-bleed treatment as those within the World Champion Corp Deck, meaning the deck is almost as much a piece of art as it is a tool that allows you to rip apart Corporate R&D with the greatest of ease.

Identity (1):
Valencia Estevez
Event (10):
Inject (3), Queen’s Gambit (2), Account Siphon (2), Blackmail (3)
Hardware (1):
Turntable (1)
Program (5):
D4v1d (2), Faust (3)
Resource (34):
Data Leak Reversal (3), Joshua B (3), Off-Campus Apartment (3), Scrubber (3), Street Peddler (3), Drug Dealer (3), Fall Guy (3), Daily Casts (3), Hades Shard (1), Paparazzi (3), Same Old Thing (3), Wireless Net Pavilion (3)

A prime example of expert-level deck-building, the 2015 Android: Netrunner World Champion Runner Deck exploits the "mill" potential provided by Data Leak Reversal, and uses Wireless Net Pavilion, Fall Guy, and Paparazzi to ward off Corporate retaliation. It may take you some time to learn how to play the deck to its fullest potential, but as you do, you'll find yourself introduced to some of the game's most surprising and potent interactions.

After all, there is no doubt as to the deck's quality. So you can look at learning how to play the deck as an exercise in learning the game itself.

Top-Notch Design

With their proven pedigree and their gorgeous new graphic design, the 2015 Android: Netrunner World Champion Corp Deck and 2015 Android: Netrunner World Champion Runner Deck offer an exciting new way to delve more deeply into the cyberstruggles of Android: Netrunner.

Invest in your future. Run like a champ. These two World Champion Decks are scheduled to arrive at retailers late in the first quarter of 2016!
