Dinosaurus (The Card that got me into the game)
+2 Strength one any Non-AI Icebreaker hosted on it and it discounts the memory cost, Is it Worth it?
Discounts the Memory regardless of the Memory cost of the icebreaker
Can host disposable breakers and give them +2 ST without risking trashing Dinosaurs (Unlike Personal Touch)
Its a Green Dinosaur come on.
Unique so Multiple copies cannot be used
Takes up the one console slot, arguably its always going to be better to run Vigil, Desperado or Astrolabe.
Must be installed before the Icebreaker hosted on it, lowering the usefulness of the card
Massive tempo loss early game due to cost, and it will be installed early game due to the nature of the card
Cannot Host AI breakers, which are some of the cards that could really use a St boost.
Personal Touch +1 St for two credits (Taking Yog past Lotus Field, and Makes femme as good as Mimic) Downside is it can't really be used on Disposable Breakers without losing it.
Net Ready Eyes (Chrome City) At the start of your turn add +1 St to a breaker of your choice
Datasucker? Arguably Increasing and Lowering Strength is exactly the same, it only really matters one around three cards (Lotus Field, Wyrm, Parasite) using this in combination with less Efficient Breakers like Femme or Pipeline may be better then Dinosaurus for boosting efficiency and won't take up a console slot or cost 5 credits.
Arguably Dinosaurus is...pretty bad. But it still has its uses (At least until Anarchs get a Native ST boost on Yog, but even then Personal touch is a better choice than Dino) and it has certainly shown up in a few sage decks. if I ever rated cards out of 5 this would get a 2, which Incidentally is the Influence cost and the number of times I ran it before I gave up and put it away in the box.
