Poor Shapers. Outside of Astrolabe, they never seem to get a console which is quite all round fantastic. Mirror, Comet and Maya were only half decent in specific decks, Dinosaurus has been power creeped, The Toolbox is too expensive and Monolith... is Monolith. For the longest time the choice for most Shapers was twofold: go with Astrolabe or an out of faction alternative, preferably low on influence. That is why The Gauntlet was never to be found in Criminal decks but it was in Shapers, and before the new MWL ripped Şifr a new one it found a home in Smoke and Kate decks.
But enough about that, let's talk about Ubax. For 5 credits you get 1MU and one guaranteed card at the start of your turn for the rest of the game. My first thought when reading this card was: "for the price of admission, 2 MU would have been nice." Shapers are traditionally the faction with big rigs, and like 2MU consoles. 5 credits is a significant tempo hit, even in Kate "Mac" McCaffrey: Digital Tinker. And if you only need 1MU, Astrolabe will give you more value in an asset heavy meta, possibly drawing you multiple cards a turn.
Is it a bad console? Definitely not, I think it is a solid console. A guaranteed card at the start of the turn is excellent. I expect to see fewer Shaper decks with out of faction consoles. If Ubax gave you 2 MU, I would have rated it excellent. But for now, Astrolabe still sits lonely at the top, imho.
