Fun card! For the low price of 1, you can pass any ice in a pinch, in exchange for what you have in hand. Early game, it let you contest any ice for some damage. Even better if that damage trigger Steelskin Scarring. In late game, if you are low on credit, you can still pass that ultimate ice and get to the winning agenda.
Combined with Raindrops Cut Stone, you get credit and replace any damage done by Tsakhia "Bankhar" Gantulga.
This could combo will with Nathaniel "Gnat" Hall: One-of-a-Kind, who need ways to deplete cards in hand. It would combo also very well with Heartbeat, especially with Apex: Invasive Predator.
While it could be used with Caldera, avoiding the resolution for 3 seems expensive.
If depleting your cards seems a issue with this, Buffer Drive would help toward this. Also, this could be used with Harmony AR Therapy, which would bring back 5 cards, but that is very much click intensive.
The art is friendly, which pairs well with the quote. It makes quite the combination with the effect of the card. I'm not sure if we are seeing Esâ Afontov: Eco-Insurrectionist on the card or Tsakhia "Bankhar" Gantulga? A fun and easy to use ressource, well balanced.
The card is a connection, and usually, if the card title is a person's name, the person in the artwork depicts that person.— DDarkray
