Death by a thousand bruises Weyland. Except for the little problem that meat damage tends to come in big packages, not small, and you only get 1 counter regardless of amount of damage.

It's nice for fast advancement if you have Crisis Management or Dedicated Response Team and can keep the runner tagged. But eh, a runner staying tagged against Weyland is not likely to survive anyway.

Probably your best bet to make Reconstruction Contract work is to combine it with the thematically appropriate Weyland Consortium: Builder of Nations. In the best case that gives you a free counter every turn, provided the runner doesn't trash your contract.

I'm not saying Reconstruction Contract can't work. But it seems like a card that you'd toss into a BoN deck thinking "it's cheap and potentially I'll score an agenda with it".

One thing that is useful about Reconstruction Contract is that it can provide a way to add one or two missing advancement tokens to an agenda relatively easily and safely. At 4 to trash the runner is less likely to go after it so as long as it's not an obvious Government Takeover scoring option it should be relatively safe. Meanwhile scoring out a Corporate Sales Team in one turn is quite useful.

Don't forget the easiest way to make Reconstruction Contract work, Dedication Ceremony. Lets you fast advance a 3/2. Also lets you create enormous pressure if you dedicate and then pass turn. Basically turns into Weyland's MCA. —
Two DCs and this on the board can pull in a Vanity Project. Hell, 3 unanswered DCs can fast score a Government Takeover. Pipe dreams sure, but that's a play that this makes viable. Now to look into an even faster Titan deck with this and Merger and Biotic Labor. —
Builder of Nations delivers your snack-sized meat damage. —
Breached Dome does small meat damage as well, especially from archives —
Synergies with :PAD Factory:, allowing it to store up clicks. For sure not worth holding out for a gov takeover, but makes it easy to score a 3/5 out of hand. —
