Any deck can make use of this card. Even better if you combine it with DreamNet (you then get to draw 2 cards). A core damage seems to be worth 2 and being near untrashable. I think that is a steep price to pay. Because you also lose a card (lost of tempo) and lose one hand size (loss of protection).

This hardware is great if you plan to use Tremolo, because it is a cybernetic. Otherwise, it is difficult to justify the loss coming with this cybernetic. DreamNet would give you the same benefit, would be neutral and cost only 2 more, unless you combine the two of them.

At 2 influences, it is a probable inclusion in any deck that aim to run at least once a turn.

The art is well done, but has a strange fit with the quote, because the art seems to depict wide surveillance rather than focus. The name of the cybernetic does not seems to mean anything, unless there is some lore I'm not aware of. The card, like its art and quote, is good.

(Parhelion era)

I think the art shows focus in that it marks out one of the "marks" as orange rather than the rest in green, so it focuses in that sense.
