1EreportWorlds Day Two (2021-10-09) by BCSWowbagger
A few months ago, someone (I don't remember who) complained that a new interrupt being considered for development was problematic because it "made the Issue is Patriotism + Defend Homeworld trick even easier."

I had to ask: "What Issue is Patriotism + Defend Homeworld trick?" Someone sat me down and patiently explained it to me.

The first thing I said was, "The new card doesn't make that any easier. That's already super-easy. Why would I want to clog up a super-easy thing by stocking and drawing into an interrupt?" The second thing I said was, "Wait... did I just say there's a super-easy way to put infinity personnel and ships in play?"

I decided to try it and see what happened. My real Worlds deck, the one I poured all the hard work into, was of course my OS Romulan build for Day One. But if that build fell apart for some reason, or if by some lucky chance I made it to Day Two, this was my silly backup.

This deck lost nearly all its playtest games, partly because I didn't redshirt with small enough teams, partly because I focused too hard on destroying my opponents after the trap went off (Joe Kallstrom memorably shut down a vast fleet by DL'ing a Q-Net after I'd wasted two turns flying over to fight him), partly because my original formula for the deck involved lots of people who couldn't actually download with DH. That not only turned out to be impossibly inefficient, but it meant the DH download soaked WAY more of the clock than it ought to. Going into Worlds, I felt it was in better shape than it had been, but it was unclear to me how much better shape.

P.S. People are asking "why no Conundrum?" Good question. It was in the original build, but I didn't want to be limited to Bajoran ships, and Conundrum is useless if a non-Bajoran ship is targeted. I almost did go ahead and limit myself to Bajoran ships... but cutting it gave me back a seed slot.
