Everyone should try scoring one of these at least once. It's bananas. I can have whatever I want? Really? Oh, and I have to discard down. Of course I do, I just scored out a 5/3 that grabs three cards. There are two obvious things to go and get: 1/ A fast advance combo, 2/ A death combo. Very occasionally you might opt for 3/ ALL OF THE MONEY. That's an important possibility to consider when comparing this to High-Risk Investment. Packing one or two Beanstalk Royalties makes score-and-recover plays a little more feasible.

Bear in mind that this has a "reveal" clause, so if you fetch an Agenda to fast advance you have to show it to the runner. Maybe showing them a Hunter Seeker too will make them think twice. I haven't tried the death combo - my initial reaction is "too expensive, too many pieces." It strikes me that the reveal is an extra death knell though. LOOK - I'M PLANNING TO KILL YOU! While you're recovering from your big score, the runner will find their counter or money up against a trace.

Overall, a really fun card.

It's a 5/3 as 5/3's should be: hard to score but with a big payoff. A three card general tutor is sweeet. The downsides are that you have to reveal those cards and you get 3 at once so your hand might get a little full if you don't plan ahead.

Compared to other Weyland or neutral 5/3's it's strong too. In terms of sheer usefulness only Hades Fragment (especially with Jackson cycling), High-Risk Investment and Global Food Initiative are comparable.

Is there any significance to it saying "deck" instead of "R&D"? Is that just a mistake? —
I believe I read somewhere that it's just a mistake. Since it says "when you score" and "your deck" the only possible deck that can be meant is the corp's as the runner doesn't score but steal agendas. —
The deck thing is sloppiness on FF part I am afraid. —
It should be noted that the card says "up to 3", so you don't have to take all 3 cards if you don't want all of them —
