This console change the game. If you are a 40 cards deck, take 3 of those, install it early (56% chance of getting it in your starting hand), and make the corp lose tempo for free. At 2, it is really cheap for that effect. Because, let's face it, corp clicks are more valuable than runners click. Using 2 (an possibly 2, if it is the second ice) to install an ice is really bothersome.
Worse yet, if the corp score while their hand it full (and on their last click), it bounce back a card in hand, forcing the corp to trash something from hand because they are over the limit. Making this kind of like a Sabotage 1.
But it get better. If you are not a glacier and only single iced your servers (centrals or others), scoring an agenda or getting an agenda stolen on a first click means a server is now unprotected! Against shell games corps (looking at you, Mitosis), you bounce back a card that has advancements, making the board less threatening.
This combo well with Capybara, which let you derez a bypassed ice, which can then be bounced back in the hand of the corp. Fun skateboard flip.
3 influences is cheap for such a powerful effect. Back when Leela Patel: Trained Pragmatist was a playable identity, it was considered one of the most powerful ability in the game. Of course, this takes up your console slot. And contrary to a great console like Paragon or Pennyshaver, it does not pay for itself. But at 2, it is cheap enough that you should not feel it much.
The real downside is this, you want this console installed as early as possible. While other console can be slotted as 1x, Hermes should always be slotted as 3x. Getting this at the late game is quite useless. So, not only does this take your console slot, but it takes more card slots also.
This is a powerhouse of a card, it cannot be overstated how good this is. I expect this to become the prefered console for regular criminals. And it will be splashed (for a whopping total of 9 influences) outside of criminals sometime, for great effects.
The art and quote are good and fitting for a console that is aimed at Mercury: Chrome Libertador. The name of the greek god of travelers is somewhat fitting with the theme of Mercury: Chrome Libertador (which has the roman name of nearly the same god of travelers). In a metaphorical manner, it can be seen as fitting for what the console does (make cards travel back). It fit neatly together, well done!
