Reviews

Just liek Calvin B4L3Y, this card is very good. Because of its cost of 2 influences, it can be moderately splashed outside Haas-Bioroid. Still, this is like Tri-Maf Contact, only better. Because once you trash it, it give an astounding 5 credits differential between the corp and the runner.

Econ wise, it is pretty good. Click for 2 creds instead of 1 is very good. Not amazing, but better than clicking for 1 cred. On top of that, it stay on the board. Tempo wise, it is ok. The amazing part comes from the differential when trashed, and the synergy with cards like Divert Power.

Nanoetching Matrix will see more play in asset spam deck, but is good in any type of deck, except maybe Glacier.

The art is weird and fit with the name of the card. The flavor is excellent. It is a HB card through and through.

Am I the only one who thinks these economy tools should be neutral? I get that it might be too late now, but it feels weird to me seeing cards like this and Green-Level being HB. Low-to-moderate influence to import still is importing cards for other factions. It's a similar idea to the anarch breakers, from Core 1.0 up through the Conspiracy Suite just being better for what they cost.

I think it IS good in glacier. It just doesn't go in the scoring remote, but in a second remote with a single piece of mid-range ICE, like Turing. If trashed, use the same server for Marilyn instead.
