So I decided to post a deck again, allthough without AH and propper Ranking its hard to tell how competitive things are. The deck is certainly something your enemy doesnt suspect, and building up that much influence is fun. Im thinking about scientific espionage, depends a bit on the meta.
Income (20) 5x Plentiful Crop 5x Knowledge is Power 5x Forced Charity 5x Rosa in Fiore
Draw (7): 5x In Depth Analysis 2x Daring Experiment
Control (14): 3x Amerigo Vespucci 3x Monteriggino 5x Target Practice 3x Strategic Assault
Finisher (10): 5x Lia del Russo (Also used for slow down, thanks to recover) 3x Leonardo da Vinci 2x Ezio, Assassin
The core idea of the deck works fine... I tried a similar deck, after your post in the Forced Charity vs Thread, but I found out that most of the time Lia cannot be played until later in the game. Why not then just play Animus Reboot instead of Target Practice and Strategic Assault if you play a lot of big agents? Leaves you room for Scientific Espionage.
I think TP and SA are better in combination with small cheap agents, to clear the path for them to attack.

Lia works quit fine for me. Only exception is, when my enemy floods the board, then I usually want to clear the path first. If he plays only few things I like her.
About Animus Reboot: It kills my own stuff and resets me to 0. Thats exactly not what I want. Animus Reboot is good in situations, where my enemy gains alot of board presence, and has nearly no hand cards left, to kinda reset the field, but its not really good in other situations.
So far Scientific are not a must. Blue/green has to many other flaws to be a big problem atm.
My biggest fear is usually a field flood backed up with a counter. When I do not have an amerigo or lia, then Im in need for a mass removal, and if that gets countered then im in big trouble. The situations dont happen that often though, since having income booster, alot off pressure and a counter and me only a 12 cost card to handle it, is super rare.
The deck has 2-3 Main flaws: No way to deal with palazzo/Silvio and no way to stop any enemy actions. But its very good against a big variety of decks and refreshing to play.
Might be intresting to play a pure action deck. *Red/Green , probably with of course monterigino*

I had the same problem with dealing with Silvio and enemy Ezios etc. Change of Plans dealt with that for me very nicely. I don't like to Reboot cos it's A) Very expensive and B) unless my deck is built for it it's gonna screw me too and end with no advantage. I don't see why you shouldn't stick with TP and SA in your deck.
Well, I was just sharing my findings after playing a very similar deck. Of course, if you like the deck as it is, you should definitely play it.
In my own Lia Russo version TP and SA have been replaced by AR. Maybe it's also because I play the deck a bit different from you. I play Against all Odds and Scientific Espionage to buy time. I only play big agents (besides the "ghetto dama rossa"), which I won't play until after the first AR, anyway.
