Viral Weaponization

Viral Weaponization 4/2

Agenda: Research - Security

When the turn on which you scored Viral Weaponization ends, do 1 net damage for each card in the grip.

Quicker and deadlier than ever imagined, the trial was an outstanding success.

    If the Corp has a rezzed Genetics Pavilion when they score a Viral Weaponization, does the Runner draw 2 or 3 cards if I've Had Worse is trashed?

    The Runner will draw the full 3 cards. Viral Weaponization triggers during the Corp's discard phase, which is still part of the Corp's turn.

    Updated (2024.03).



Costing the runner tempo, disrupting their plans, and gaining information.

Trashing cards for grind based decks like Potential Unleashed.

Creating scoring windows with shell decks, such as with Project Junebug and Genetics Pavilion.

Amani Senai —
Influence 4 hurts, and it can be prevented due to the trace, not to mention that you need to protect it and the agenda at the same time. The net tax from beating the trace would be ~4, since any more would require you to spend credits. It would only have utility by opening a scoring window if the runner has less credits than you, and you still have to outspend him. —
Nisei MK II does the same without needing Amani Senai. —
Not every gameplan needs a Nisei token over net damage. Any Jinteki deck that wants to grind you out could gladly use this agenda. Combo it with Mental Health Clinic for maximum damage. —
Comparing this to Nisei is kinda pointless cause they do vastly different things in different decks —
Thank you for telling me, I now understand how this agenda is supposed to be used. I will edit my original post. —
Still editing —
The trick is of course that you can play both Nisei MK II and viral weaponization. You also play gene splicer en NGO front for the bluffing potential. —
