HB have always good at getting the most out of everything.

As the 3/2 HB Agendas cycle out, this might be a valid replacement. While not as outright powerful, it will get the corp a lot of value over the game if scored early. A card or credit every turn the runner runs is fantastic economy.

Subliminal Messaging means you get a credit, if they ran or didn't. The draw means you can keep agendas they see off the top with Globalsec Security Clearance.

Acclerated Beta Test is core set, so it won't cycle out. But this is the best HB 4/2 since people figured out the Efficiency Committee/Shipment from SanSan combo. —
This card is phenomenal. I've been trying it out, and it's an all star performer. The flexibility of being able to draw a card or gain a credit is fantastic, depending what you need at the time. Score this thing first and your game just goes so much smoother. Score two and it's just the greatest thing in the world. —
To note: it has a good synergy with Daily Business Show. —
As with Globalsec SC, so also with Spy Camera. —

I feel that this card was sort of overshadowed by Corporate Sales Team just one set later. You'll get your money back from scoring the agenda only two full turns after the scoring turn, then it's pure profit and neutral to boot!

This card, however, gives the Corp much more flexibility, even if it does fire only once per turn. Pull in more credits to rez ice or take a card to dilute HQ, the choice is yours!

It's great against cautious runners who have to build up after each run, so it works well with expensive glacier setups. I don't like this much against Anarch Medium dig decks, but I'm sure skilled HB decksmiths can get this card to do fantastic work for them!

(Democracy and Dogma era)
I think while Sales team is out, it's probably waitng for a world with fewer 3/2s. Other than that, maybe NEXT rush would appreciate the agenda econ. —
