This is a strictly upgraded Melange Mining Corp. Coming at a rez cost of 0 compared to 1, it yields 6 credits instead of 7. This makes it an even gain on its first use after rez; additional uses will yield one less credit compared to Melange, if you can manage it. Each use will additionally allow the corp to remove 1 Bad Publicity, which has been a rare effect up to this point. To cap it all off it has a trash cost of 3, raised from 1.
Liked your review. But "strictly upgraded" is an exaggeration. — BlackCherries
It's "strictly" an upgrade~ish if you're in Weyland. If you're not in Weyland, it's a similar effect to Melange at 1 Inf a pop. If you're removing 1 Bad pub each time you fire this thing, then you probably don't care that the subsequent uses gain 1 less credit than Melange. The +2 trash cost is also welcome. If there's no bad pub to remove, or if you're not in Weyland, then there's still an argument to be made for Melange. — Chezni
