Here's a pic of the new income denial deck I'm trying out. The problem I'm having is that there are so many income deny cards that you have to pack 5 copies of that it doesn't leave room for much els after the income boosters n stuff, not much room for win cons so I end up having the person stuck at 0-2 income as i wait to draw the cards I need, which I hate doing to the opponent cause its boring. Also, media/crime isn't the best for draw power.
Yeah, I've tried similar decks in the past. The problem is that they don't work as well as you would like and that you're almost always going to be playing catch-up since virtually everyone plays a number of low-cost income boosters. Teddy V, Plentiful Crop, PP, KHAP, KIP, Dama Rossa, the list goes on. Pretty much your only hope to get ahead is to be able to drop a Collateral Damage really early through a PP. Even then, the problem is that you'd almost always be better off with a different strategy that would work better. For example, if your hope is to get a Collateral Damage off early, you could get a Doomsday off at the same time. I keep trying to make these decks work and just can't.
I definitely agree with everything you said Jeremy. I tried a doomsday variation, as well as a variation with every faction (crime/media and crime/order seem to work best) I also wish high profile assassination worked on both sites and agents. Your right though, with the current cards available, income denial is not a consistent option
I've tried an income denial deck as well. Not successful with my deck at all (due to lack of PP). I think I had one victory out of 5 games. It is too easy for the opponent to generate income at this time.

I wouldn't say it's cos it's too easy - its cos people are recognizing and balancing the income/utility ratio better than before. There used to be tons of decks that did nothing but income boost with nothing ventured etc. but they were mostly useless cos they didn't have a balance between income and utility.
