Startup Tournament - New Players Encouraged

This tournament will be using Nisei's new Startup format. That means all legal decks must be built out of System Gateway + System Update 21 + Ashes (the most recently released cycle). All decks must follow normal deck construction rules.

The start time will be 10 AM PDT, with a player meeting at 9:45. The entire tournament should run about 4 hours, though if you need to drop early that is ok.

The tournament will be run using a single sided swiss system, so in every round you will be assigned your opponent and which deck you will play. You might have a rematch with that person, but it will be with the deck you did not play in the previous match.


Please register here

To register you must have both a runner and corporation deck. Decklists are not required at the time of registration (though ID choices are). If you are looking for ideas, there are two legal decks for each faction at the bottom of this post.

Tournament Policies

This event will follow all Nisei OP Tournament policies, most important the code of conduct.

Project NISEl is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of belief, body size, disability (learning, mental, physical or any other kind), gender identity and expression, health conditions (mental or physical), physical appearance, race, religion or sexual orientation. We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form.

Because this is a new player focused tournament, this will be run as a casual event. That means we strongly encourage you to allow players to give takebacks (exceptions for drawing/accessing cards- both of which reveal new information are reasonable). If you have any questions about an interaction please contact a judge. Jinteki.net is a very good tool, but its impementation does not always exactly match the rules, so if something seems unintuitive, please call a judge! Calling judges when you have questions about a rule, or what a card does is one of their major purposes.

Another important leg to stand on here is to be respectful of your opponent. We want to make sure the Netrunner community continues to be a welcoming space. If your opponent is making/made you feel uncomfortable, please reach out to a judge and we will help you resolve the issue.

Because this is a new player tournament judges will be lenient with slow play calls, but if you do feel your opponent it intentionally slowing down the game to gain a benefit, please do reach out to a judge.

What to do on the day

  • Join the Nisei Event Discord. We will be organizing the event in the online-gnks-1 channel.
  • 15 minutes before the start of the tournament there will be an optional player meeting. In that meeting I will re-outline the way the tournament will run, and then post pairings. During every round you are encouraged to go the appropriate "table" in the Voice Channels: Event1 grouping. That way if you and your opponent want to, you can talk during the game (but this is not required).
  • Then the player who will be playing the Corporation will create a game in the Competitive tab. The title name must include Table # where the # is what table you were assigned. When you make the table make sure "Allow Spectators" is checked, and "Make players' hidden information visible to spectators" is not checked.
  • When you and your opponent are both in, you are allowed to start the game and take mulligans. But the Corp player cannot click start turn until the TO starts the round. This will be announced in the Discord.
  • During the round you can @Ysengrin (and other volunteer judges) if you had mid-round questions/judge requests. You can also type ".timer" in the channel to see any active timers
  • When you finish your game both you and your opponent should report results using this form


Every player must bring two legal decks, one Corporation, one Runner. Submission/claiming decklists is encouraged. If deckbuilding is intimidating (as is often true for a new cardpool) the following decklist below can be run as is, or modified by you. Each one is tournament legal, and can be exported to Jinteki.net by selecting Actions > Export Jinteki.net and then copying and pasting. Or by using Jinteki.net's built in auto-import. To do that import copy the numbers that appear in the url after netrunnerdb.com/en/decklist/#####/....

If you have questions about the tournament or decks you can ping me on the GLC discord by using @Ysengrin
