Best backup barrier breaker for criminal and shaper. The best barrier breaker belong to anarch, of course. But Marjanah as two things going for it.

First, it cost only 1 influence. Making it an easy backup for barrier breaking.

Second, it cost 0 to install! Amazing!

While is not a very efficient barrier breaker, especially for ices with multiple subroutines like Pharos, you do get a chance to make it more efficient by running something else first.

Thus, if you do not have the influence for a second Paperclip, this fracter will act as a great backup if you draw it before Paperclip. And it will not hurt you to trash it after (remember, is cost you zero to install, aside from the click). Furthermore, it will help you against Wraparound.

I really like the art, it is funny and endearing. The quote is good. I just cannot fathom what the name mean and how it fit with the card (or the art, or the quote). I still smile everytime it appear on the board.
