I've been lurking here for a while, just put this deck together a few days ago but have yet to lose with it, so I figured I'd share. It's a pretty straight forward deceptive rush.
Income: 5x Dama Rossa 5x Political Patronage
Support/Draw: 5x Ancient Map 5x Scientific Method 5x Advanced Training 5x Magnetic Personality 2x Cristina Vespucci
Core: 5x Street Thespian 5x Darim 5x Sophia's Home 3x Assassin's Library
This deck can work with or without a PP in the opening hand so don't worry too much about that. It's fast enough without it, just even faster with it. Only changes I plan to make is replacing the 2 Cristina's with 2 more Assassins Library, but this deck has been working so well so far that I may not even do that. That +3 has created a couple day 1 wins for me. Just drop agents first, and drop a site before midway through the day so it will resolve right before it will score. It usually doesn't take much longer than the second draw for me to win, if that. Advanced training unblocked agents, MP the blocked agents. GG.
Hi Boston. Thanks for sharing and posting your deck (it's been a while since we saw new decks).
This type of deck will probably work now since people don't see it coming. It was the (irritating) rage when it first came out with revelations. Deceptive agent rush. So many people played it, but it faded away. One card that will ruin your day is tackles theatrics (surprise -0/2). People may use this more if we see more deceptive agent rushes.
I for one hope not. I don't particularly like to play this type of deck. It is not very fun to play against.

Yeah other media decks are really the only issues I've encountered. Just lost my first match to a PP->Piri off the jump, shutting down the first day Magnetic personality score. I might start running a few tactless myself to deal with cards like Piri. We'll see depending on how common that becomes.

IMHO I wouldn’t bother adding Tactless Theatrics. The key to a deck like this is all speed. There is always some card or defense that you may have to worry about with rush decks. Adding other cards that don’t necessarily help with the speed changes the dynamic too much. This one is almost the same as the deck I posted before the last nerf. The main difference is you use Dama and I put in Knowledge is Power. But I like the addition of Cristina Vespucci. My initial version also had Nicco. It used to be much faster before the change to PP too, but I am glad they changed that card.
I got my idea from Felix’s and Rockgod’s Order/Media deceptive decks. If you want more of an answer for certain cards there versions are still pretty viable and are better if the game goes a little longer.
