    ANCUR UFAQ 24 [Michael Boggs]

    In what order does a piece of ice gain subroutines while hosting Wetwork Refit with Warden Fatuma active?

    The subroutines are gained in "timestamp order". Whichever card became active first gives its subroutine first, then the other card gives its subroutine second. Thus, the most recently active card's subroutine will be the first subroutine, followed by the subroutine from the older card.

    ANCUR UFAQ 23 [Michael Boggs]

    If Loki copies the subroutines from another bioroid while Warden Fatuma is rezzed, how many " The Runner loses , if able." subroutines does Loki have?

    Loki will have two copies of the subroutine: one from Warden Fatuma, and one copied from the other bioroid ice.


While the actual play-ability of this is dubious, this seems like a pretty fun card.


Tax: Warden Fatuma usually taxes the runner a credit for every bioroid ICE, unless they are running last click, which makes them vulnerable to Ikawah Project unstealability.

ID Synergy: Haas-Bioroid: Architects of Tomorrow, Haas-Bioroid: Stronger Together, and Seidr Laboratories: Destiny Defined, employ numerous bioroids and Seidr in particular likes the click drain Warden Fatuma creates.

High Trash cost: Most runners don't want to trash a 5 cost asset.


Relatively low impact-Click loss is annoying, but not huge, and the credit tax can be more or less shrugged off by rich runners

Only affects bioroids: Many HB decks employ other ICE like Architect or Seidr Adaptive Barrier, which are unaffected.

Note how good Fatuma makes Fairchild 3.0. Other 3-sub bioroids benefit immensely from the Warden too - I'll be trying to make her work with Ichi 1.0/2.0 and Heimdall 1.0/2.0. —
Also benefits Mother Goddess and helps Loki if by itself. —
Not sure it really helps that much with FC3: runner will just triple click off the original subs and then the Warden’s won’t do anything useful. —
Ah yeah. Guess it's better with 2.0 bioroids with 2/3 subs. —
Note that Loki, when copying a Bioroid, would actually get two extra "lose a click" subs compared to without Fatuma. —

Good 1-copy card for HB decks still building the early rotation sets.

Super punishing for the Runner to trash. And the effect is handy to have. Not gamebreaking, but it might turn an early game Viktor 1.0 with an Eli 1.0 behind it into an unstoppable wall. So basically pretty good early on, and an annoying threat the rest of the game.
