Crypt 0[credit]

Resource: Virtual
Influence: 1

Whenever you make a successful run on Archives, you may place 1 virus counter on Crypt.

[click], [trash], 3 hosted virus counters: Search your stack for a virus program and install it (paying its install cost), then shuffle your stack.

The smell of rot strengthens with each step.

Why are you running Archives? This doesn't trigger on a Sneakdoor Beta or Omar Keung: Conspiracy Theorist run, as those are treated as a successful run on HQ / R&D, so no combos there. Maybe you can make it work with Alice Merchant: Clan Agitator, if there's a virus program you're cool with waiting 3 turns for (or blowing an extra click or two on). Otherwise this is a tutor that costs 5 clicks (install, 3 runs, pop), instead of eg. 1 click -> 2 credits (Self-modifying Code), and 4 clicks are worth a lot more than 2 credits. You'll save influence if you're an Anarch, but there are better things to use the slot for.

I always knew that there was something wrong with this card to use it as tutor but I haven't done the maths. Thank you! =D —
Not great, but niche usage for freedom might be 1 = farming counters, 2 = tutor in case of emergency for freedom imho —
This card is only worth it if you're playing profit-runs, like the Andysuckers of old —

"This doesn't trigger on a Sneakdoor Beta" - incorrect. It states "whenever you make a successful run on Archives", not "whenever you access cards from archive". First "Crypt" effect must trigger, then "Sneakdoor Beta".

ah, actually nevermind. I haven't seen Errata from CR 1.4 on Omar Keung. You were right.

You're running archives because you committed Wanton Destruction or went through a Stargate and you know that there are agendas there. You made a deal with Akshara Sareen to get this chance, and now that Déjà Vu rotated, this is a way to keep yout Clot around that still has some synergy.

*keep yourself in clots, stack not heap, I can read sometimes.
