Reviews

Tech against Enhanced Login Protocol + Crisium Grid?

(Or, if you're against RP packing ELP, ESA lets you get a one-click HQ run, then Inside Job lets you negate the ELP effect.)

The new Data Dealer?

I mean (as of All That Remains) this card is in the same spot as Data Dealer was before Shi.Kyū hit in Honour & Profit: a card that has an effect you could conceivably want, but nowhere near worthwhile.

Sometimes, seeing the entire contents of HQ is entirely useful: This would synergise nicely with the super-combo of Nerve Agent+Sneakdoor Beta+clicks remaining, as you gain Nerve Agent counters...

But, really, it's spending a credit, a card, an install and 1 MU to let you spend runs on HQ into seeing it all.

The effect is nice, but nowhere near worth the cost. And I can't see that changing.

It's definitely not the greatest card in most instances, but it's awesome against punishing PE decks. When a Legwork could wreck yourself against Snare! or Fetal AI, it's good to be able to see what's in hand. Can you run relatively safely? Will you get flatlined?

It's obviously a lot more difficult to justify when you would have to pay more than 2 credits to get through the ice. But when you know you might take it on the chin, why not take a peak?

(All That Remains era)

Opportunity cost. Every deck slot is valuable. Every MU is valuable. Every credit is valuable. Sure this may have a niche use case, but is there something that would be better almost every time you draw it? With this card, probably.
