It might be because I have a ton of cards, but I'ld say that one of my
top 2 decks is my Shaman deck. I'll have to look up the deck and post it
to the list sometime this week. The ke with Shamans is to take advantage
of Biotech and the Ally Spirit. You'll need to put in a couple of tough
runners to help with damage soaking and damage dealing, but you can quickly
put out a team of runners tha can go on a Shadowrun every turn, rather than
every other turn.
I've seen Quicksilver's Mage deck work its magic, and I'ld have to say that
was a very nasty deck as well.
I personally think that all of the differant types of Runners are well
balanced, with Yakuza being slightly shafted in regard to toughness and
