In my neverending quest for having fun with cards I never played before I stumbled upon miss Diego. Her cost-to-effectivness is awful, but who said you can't make a little combo around her?
What's the main problem with The Root? It needs another secure remote server, and also breaks even after two turns. Simone is of course not so flexible and usefull, since she can be used only to advancing cards in one server, but she is an upgrade, so if you are about making one stron remote, she can help you. But not on her own of course...
We usually treat this card as default economy option in HB decks, but it is neutral card after all and can be used by anyone! It works great with Simone and makes her efficient from turn one. And ta-dah, we have nice little remote server which can advance our Oaktown Renovation for free. Since it has BBG, Ash 2X3ZB9CY for defence will be also nice.
You can go even futher and try to leverage Underway Renovation which is almost never worth spending real money on, but with credits from Diego, it can be fun to mill four runner cards while waiting for better agendas to happen. Put some GRNDL Refinery and Expo Grid for ultimate wackiness.
It works, sometimes. Best used in Blue Sun: Powering the Future I think.
