- Good synergy with Djinn: pays back the click to tutor. Add a couple of Cyber feeders and start your engines.
Good with Special Order: it pays back the extra click to tutor, given the program is installed right afterwards.
Pays back the click spent to install SMC.
Makes Saharara completely free (0 clicks, 0 credits).
Great synergy with Savoir faire: nets you a 5th click in the turn, for a cost of 2 credits. Early Bird + Savoir Faire + Autoscripter + Doppleganger = 3 runs + 4 clicks remaining, along with a zero-click program install. Creates a favorable environment to add Notoriety and Quest Completed.
Great with Mass install : 3 programs (a complete rig, or 3 Caissas with Deep Red in play) for zero click is huge.
Great with Pawn when it 'scores'. Allows a 5th click too + a zero-click program installed.
For Virus programs, allows to trash 5 cards from HQ a turn with Noise / DLR.
Works only if the program is installed from your grip, so anti synergetic with Clone Chip, Personal Workshop, SMC, Scavenge, Retrieval Run.
Must be trashed if you make an unsuccessful run. So it bends the game plan towards a rig development phase.
At 3 influence, here is once again a card that The Professor would have loved to play but will never.
I think I will give it try with Ken.
