I have in my posession 1 Core, 1 Trace Amount and 1 Honor and Profit. What type of decks would people recommend I build? I've tried two types of Jinteki, one building horizontally to benefit from Diversified Portfolio and one with a tight ICE-build where I used the Identity that gives an advancement token if no sucessful runs were made (to feed Ice Wall and then Trick of Light over from them to fast advance House of Knives and Medical Breakthrough).

For runner I tried a Stirling Connections but didn't really feel that the cards were sufficient (rly missing The Source) and also one with Silhouette that focuses building up and exposing what's in the remotes as needed.

Have been thinking about trying an NBN-deck to combo Medical Research Fundraiser with Closed Accounts and have been thinking about that as a Jinteki deck aswell. Both would really benefit from the boost in direct econ cards but not sure which one would be better balanced. Jinteki could run trappy or fast advance right after and have extra tag-giver with Cerebral Cast but NBN would have an easier time giving out the tags.

Ideas? Thoughts? All help is rly appreciated.

With your cardpool I would probably stick with Jinteki and Criminal as those are the most cards you have. You could build a pretty solid Replicating Perfection deck with your pool and maybe a Gabe deck that plays with Data suckers Parasites yog mimic corroder as breakers

Here is a deck that I threw together using your restricted cardpool. The basic idea is to defend centrals and create a taxing remote server that the runner has to run twice either with red herrings or Corporate trouble shooter. Lots of asset economy to help to give you a credit advantage and if the runner ever hits a fetal AI and has low card count then the neural EMP could give you an alternate win condition. Welcome to the game and I hope you enjoy it :)

Thank you :) I've built two decks for testing, will try your idea aswell (only difference will be -1 Neural EMP since there's only 2 in a single core). Going to a tournament next weekend where the limitation is 1 core, 1 data pack and 1 deluxe so hoping I have a shot there.
 
For the two I've built my worries are:
In Jinteki, the economy. And if my ICE will hold up. It isn't ment to tax but to punish so the Netdmg can become fatal.
In Criminal, everyone complains about Silhouette but I really like to know what to run on and she pairs well with Desperado and the 2 good central-only breakers (not the barrier one... oh my god how I hate the barrier one).
 
Strategy Runner:
 
Run on centrals (pref HQ) building money and disrupting their econ while doing it. Use identity to avoid running on traps/assets/upgrades and make them scared of installing an Agenda. When you feel they should have plenty of Agendas on hand you run Legwork.
 
 
Strategy Corp:
 
After a possibly weak start, where you hopefully have gotten a braindmg or two in, the plan is to finish with netdmg. Early braindmg can come from a Victor or a Tori Hanzo. Alternative wins can come from things like Mushin -> Fetal -> Komainu in front (or a Chum/Inazuma in front of a Komainu/Data Mine you've already placed).

Well, going to the tournament now and ended up using your deck since none of the ideas I tried seemed to be functioning. Changed 1 Melange, 1 Chum and 1 Neural (only 1 core set so only 2 each of those). Replaced with 2 Mushin no Shin and 1 Inazuma. Did consider 2x Precognition and also 2 of those Assets that swap places on ICE but ended up on no Shin in the end since it seemed most effective.
