Hyperdriver is a combo card, it is best used to achieve something that cannot be done in a normal 4 click turn. For example, use it with Wanton Destruction to trash the Corp's entire HQ, then immediately check archives. Or use Vamp in combination with Medium or Keyhole to tear up R&D.

The most awkward part of using Hyperdriver is finding a way to fit its huge 3. Leprechaun is by far the best answer. It can even host two Hyperdrivers, for a 10 click turn!

All-nighter is an older card that has a similar effect, but less strong and much easier to play out. If you've got the spare deckslots you could include those as well in a one-big-turn deck.

Bit out of faction, but you can host all three on #Scheherazade and get your money back. —
dherki: Just to be clear, cards hosted on Scheherazade still consume MU. —
3x Notoriety and a Quest Completed targeting a Vanity Project in one turn? Sounds like fun! —
I wish these were unique. The whole DDOS, False Echo combo with Fear the Masses, or Keyhole, or Medium is really dumb. —


  • costs 0 for Kate
  • 3 clicks to do what you want is and I've Had Worse in faction for all Shapers, and it's a flexible Diesel where you can play a card or two instead of drawing aggressively


  • 3 MU is a lot of MU to work around on most rigs
  • Power Shutdown is a thing in some scenes
(Old Hollywood era)
It's important to note that Hyperdriver can be a Diesel (for Kate), or a better Sure Gamble (if you already have Opus), but the true strength of the card is that it's both an efficient card *and* an enabler of insanse shenanigans like 7x Keyhole or Quest Completed-> 3x Notoriety. —
Or, as I have been having lots of fun with, Eater, Hyperdriver and Wanton Destruction to clear out 5 cards from hand and have a click left to check archives! Or Same Old Thing Wanton Destruction to clear out 5 card! —
I've only ever seen Hyperdriver on a Leprechaun, in a Chaos Theory deck, or both. Fix that MU problem though and you can really make use of the ability. At one credit it is an absolute steal. —
I saw 3 MU, I said "that's for Sunny!" —
