You know how Haas-Bioroid: Engineering the Future was so powerful because it gave you a reliable credit every turn. This is roughly the same thing. It says "at the end of your discard phase gain 1 if you have a facedown card in archives" at the end of your DISCARD PHASE, so you could just draw over your hand size, dump a card, and make a profit. This also works a bit like Industrial Genomics: Growing Solutions: you put a trap face down in archives, say Shi.Kyū Breached Dome or Shock! (make sure the trap works in archives, so no Snare!) then leave the runner at a crossroads: either give me money every turn or run archives and suffer the traps. Although, I haven't played this deck enough or seen this get played enough. So mabye i'm stupid and also wrong =)

Close, but overdrawing is harder than having something to install

When this is legal to play I think the only legal traps to fire from archives will be Shi.Kyu, Cyberdex Virus Suite and Space Camp. Not exactly a terrifying selection.

My mistake, Shi.Kyu's in Honor and Profit, so that's rotating too. We'll have to see what's in System Gateway. It seems unlikely that there won't be a trap to continue Jinteki's proud tradition of rigging archives.

part of the reason ETF was busted was because you could also fire it on runner turns, which doesn't work here.
