The original counter to Scorched Earth.
- Prevents up to 3 meat damage
- Recurring credits to remove tags helps stretch the credits gained from Account Siphon
- Can only prevent up to 3 meat damage. You're still going to slightly singed from Scorched Earth
- To prevent the damage, you need to trash it. So you need to think long and hard whether its worth trashing over 1 meat damage or keep in reserve for Scorched Earth.
- While the influence isn't back-breaking, non-criminals will hesitate to include this card when so other out-of-faction cards are begging to be included
Overall, criminals should give serious consideration to this card over Plascrete Carapace, especially if Account Siphon is a major part of their strategy. Non-criminals are probably better off sticking to Plascrete Carapace
