  • very cost effective
  • good early Ice


  • becomes obsolete with Link
  • you've got to bring some teeth for the tags or Hunter might be non-existent


  • has a strong synergy with Chum, because it is usually cheaper to win the trace or clear the tag than actually breaking it
  • I'd probably put in on R&D early while the runner has no link
  • but since it doesn't punish the runner directly, one has to be aware of hail marys, especially with Medium
  • it is nicely out of Mimic range
  • I think it is an interesting choice for Jinteki:
    • Even with link, Chum makes it a threat again
    • the trace becomes slightly more powerful on central servers when Snares are around
    • cheap Ice is nice for Edge of World
