Tonight, I used a deck with only ork heavy hitters and elf
mage/shamans for runners. It was okay but I took some major hits from
the other runner teams. The jury is still out on this deck's

I have yet to use the chipjacks or skillsofts. I have left them out
to save room for other cards. Anyone have an opinion on them? Are they
a big boost or not worth it?

I did reach the conclusion that having a lot of special cards in
your deck is a very good thing. We had one series tonight where a
number of Luck of the Irish, Deja Vu, and Loaded Dice cards were all
used to try to counteract each other. I think 7 in all were used. It
was pretty funny.
