Anson Rose

Get Anson up and running. Wait. Use some Trick of Light on your agendas and you are all set. And if you think he will get trashed, hide him behind advancable ice so you can transfer all his counters onto the ice and still play your Trick of Light.

As a single cost to rez, this is great. Need to go faster, Mushin No Shin him out.

Do you like travelling and/or suchi? Let Anson take you on a trip to NeoTokyo Grid. He pays for himself turn 1, then it's all gravy. Really thick, slow gravy but still gravy.

How about those stupid advancable ice, like Lycan? Never heard of it? Well get ready to doge both a Code Gate and a Sentry when you run. Or dream of a ridiculous Searchlight? All the craptastic combos you ever wanted are there for the taking... Shadow? Salvage? Mausolus? YES PLEASE. Swarm? OMG YES.

Not enough money? Maybe you can get some Commercialization going after rezzing those stupid combos above?

Anson getting lippy after the Tokyo trip? Tired of him drunk texting you at 2 in the morning "babi o iz gop n advancement in my pannts fr u"? Have him whacked in some shady parking lot by your Back Channels.

And if you really want to be a dick about it, before whacking the poor Anson, throw him a party to keep his guard down. I hear he likes Dedication Ceremonies

Anson is the man? Sure... Fuck the man.

It's true that Anson is one of the few cards that actually makes NeoTokyo Grid seem almost playable. But seriously, if you're in weyland, you might as well just use Expo Grid, and save yourself some influence. (And use a more versatile card in general.) —
Totally agree, Expo Grid is the way to go in Weyland. —

Slot this into Gagarin, rez it and let it stew while the runner is too busy dealing everything else you got.

Then watch their face when they get killed by a Woodcutter!

Or, more realistically, you just make an Ice Wall hilariously high strength or a Mausolus instantly impossible to run through.

That, or they just fork over the 5 to trash it (or 2, if they can do magic). Either way, not a bad card.
