A card that is both surprisingly powerful, and weirdly limited.
A free run every turn is almost as good as a free click every turn! But not being able to use programs during that run limits it a lot. You can pick up some of that slack through things like Always Be Running, or Sunny's own Security Nexus. But in general it's hard to get into too much mischief with this.
On the other hand though, it is pretty good for checking unprotected remotes.
And it is downright fantastic for triggering successful run effects. If they leave ANY server unprotected, a few things you can do:
- Desperado is, of course, the obvious card here. Who doesn't like more money?
- Security Testing gives you even more free money.
- Stock up on Datasucker tokens, if the unprotected server is archives.
- DaVinci is like getting free money from your runs, except you get a free install out of it too.
- Stock up on Hemorrhage tokens, if they have any server naked.
- Trigger Doppelgänger, for not one, but TWO free runs before your first click. (The second one doesn't even have to be without your programs!) For bonus points, after you finish your first two free runs, play Three Steps Ahead and make a few more runs, so you can be extra rich.
- Bank Job works well on anything that is naked. (Although you have to have played it first and warned the corp.)
- John Masanori give you free cards on successful runs.
- And many more!
And of course, a lot of these can be stacked. Who knows, maybe Jak will help bring back the old criminal agro decks of yore!
