Finally.... a decent Current for criminals.

Corporate Grant plays on a criminal strength - keeping the corp poor. Because of its trigger, it only truly shines in builder/horizontal decks. However, most criminals (e.g. Gabe, Ken, Los) are aggressive. They get their rig up fast, and run, run, run.

Meet Geist (if you somehow haven't already):

  1. Geist installs a lot of cards, constantly triggering the ability throughout the game.
  2. Counters Scarcity of Resources, which has shut down staple cards like Fall Guy, Tech Trader, and Street Peddler for a long time.
  3. You can use Street Peddler during the corp's turn, triggering Corporate Grant out of turn.
  4. Slows down Rush and FA decks, letting you build up before they can win.
  5. Cheap to play.

As a Criminal "main", it makes me proud to finally see a solid Current after several years.
