    My Opponent was OSS. Charontid scored Follow-up as the data tracker on turn 1. Cadmus came in turn 2 to score Data Scan. Opponent scored Espionage on turn 1, Capture on turn 2 and Experimental Drug on turn 3.

    My turn 3 was pretty baller. Doc Worm rushed in to score Retroengineering and the Caliban turned badass. It scored predator on the enemy Dasyu (Daturazi had already killed a model in CC on turn 2) then it rushed in and scored identity check on the HVT for the win.

    Ahahah, didn't notice how many Shasvastii I got in the list... :sweat_smile:
    I didn't really consider the Charontid but I'll keep the big guy in mind! Thanks a lot for the feedback! Especially considering that my opponent will play OSS too!
