Why is Negotiated Non-aggression in there? Just for the :ev?

Actually, I meant to use it for Vargr Raiders. But in effect I believe I only ever played it once or twice during all my attempts at Solo Scenario 2.
Mind you, I do not say this deck is perfect, but it certainly did the trick.

Oh, no, you're good. Actually, I confused it with Dramatic Renegotiation! I was wondering where you were going to get the :infamy...

I like the deck, looks really well tuned.

I tried Scenario 2, 2 times, with Subsidized Merchant stock deck, I won in the second time with 9 cards left in the deck.

The trick for me was triggering the Replenish abilities as often as possible. I know I got Restricted Tech Vendor to combo with the ship for Replenish 3 at least twice. And the ship another time by itself.

The taking 5 turns to setup a crew was crucial. Efficiency Diagnotic got me 2 points. But an early Drifting Depot and just sandbag counters on the turns I am Uncommited was probably the lynchpin

Nicely done! What was your decklist? Was it just the starter deck, or did you make changes?

Starter. I am trying each deck as is before I make changes.

Whoosh! I was able to beat this with 6 cards left! Using Subsidized Merchant starter deck. I took the hint to do several rounds without committing to a contract, I think I did four. I was able to get the Restricted Tech Vendor :ally to trigger a few times alone and once with the :ship for the Replenish, without that I never would have made it. I had 18 :vp going into the last contract and only two cards in my hand. I kept pulling the Jump Lazies :complication which only let me draw one card. I wasn't sure I'd make it. Paying 18 was killing what was left of my deck! But a few 2 and I think one 3 :ev and I was just able to make it with only 4 cards in the deck. Win with the Flex Ticket contract at 21 :vp

I don't think I've very won that one before.

If I were to customize the deck I think I'd load up on some high :ev cards. And find some other ways to Replenish too! If I had not been able to get Restricted Tech Vendor early on I wouldn't have made it for sure.

I beat it with the Empress Marava deck. I also waited several turns before attempting a contract. Once I did, I went for the highest value contracts and subcontracts I could to spend as little time as possible having to pay every turn. The ability to trade in 3 resources for any 1 resource was invaluable for getting through some complications and completing subcontracts - it ensured that I always had any one skill or capability that I might otherwise be missing.
