I keep my decks to 60-65 (Easier to draw what you NEED)

I would put in another Thrash (Your runners are expensive)

This many different chalanges can get confusing for you, put multiples of
you "Favorite" chalanges instead of 1 each.

I would add some Harley Davidsons (Easy armor), and 1 or 2 Invisibility.

>Contacts (4)

Add a squatter if you have it (To get back key spells like sleep)

I like Elven Hitman to Even Steven (But it is a toss up)

>Missions (10)
>Nosfratu Den
>Tiki Head Enigma
>Harlequin's Game
>Wake the Dead
>Operation Cottonmouth
>Mystic Testing Grounds

>The Vault

(I don't know about these misssions, play around with them)

Hope it helped,
