The Cookbook to CI7 - A post-Flashpoint retrospective

The Cookbook to CI7 - A post-Flashpoint retrospective

Quorum, the last pack in the Flashpoint cycle, is now released. Since the release of Sifr and Aaron Marron, a lot of competitive minded players are considering CI7 the best deck right now. This is made even better by the release of Violet Level Clearance, a very strong card that boosts all archetypes of Cerebral Imaging (including the non-Power Shutdown variants). As such, it may be important to get a refresher on CI7, and note what has changed since the Cookbook was last updated.

If you are new to the whole concept of CI7, the original introductory article can be found here.

New Zealand 2016 Nationals Report

4th NZ Nationals was the bomdigi! This year, the decision was made to host the event in the South Island (little ol' New Zealand is indeed divided into two major land masses), but the weekend was no less fantastic for it. 21 people ended up attending from all corners of the country. There were players from Christchurch (the hosting city), Wellington, Auckland, and even Hamilton present. Packs up to Blood Money were legal for the event. Suffice to say, there were a lot of Temujin Criminals present.

Temujin Contract - Bring on the Khannage!

Temujin Contract - Bring on the Khannage

Sometimes when evaluating cards, its easy to fall into the trap of thinking about it theoretically instead of practically. When Rumor Mill was spoiled, I was super excited despite not having played the card. When Temujin Contract was spoiled, I was like "This is good", but not as excited. Boy, was I wrong.

Something for the corps to fear

Rumor mill is bonkers!!!111one

Rumor Mill is bonkers!!!1

Since Order and Chaos dropped, we had our first hints of Princess Space Kitten in the flavour-text of Memstrips. This was continued further with Trope. The silly name alone sparkled a lot of delight. When blood money was first spoiled, all we could see was the art of Rumor Mill, depicting Princess Space Kitten's digital avatar - literally a kitten in an astronaut suit. People were excited enough about the card without even knowing what it did, but now that it has been spoiled, we have the rare combination of the best art in the data pack also being the strongest card.

The Cookbook to CI7 - Heuristics


This is just a list of general rules for how to deal with various situations. You will have to read the various full lists for a more comprehensive analysis. Think of this as a quick cheat-sheet.

The Cookbook to CI7 - Conclusion


In the previous article, we talked about how to run against CI7. With this out of the way, you should now know the majority of what you need when it comes to CI7, both in terms of playing it or playing against it, and what to expect on both sides.

In this article, we will go over a few alternate deck choices, list some heuristics to follow for general use, and provide some alternate resources to either extend your CI7 game further, or give alternate explanations (in case mine weren't good enough).
