    Can the 3 discount from Tucana be spread across the rez and install costs of that ice?

    Yes.

  • Updated 2023-10-04

    Can the Corp search for ice with Tucana, install it, and then decline to pay the rez cost?

    No. However, the Corp could decline to pay any additional costs to rez that ice. In that case, the Corp would not pay its rez cost either. The ice would remain unrezzed, and the Corp would be required to reveal the ice to show that it has an additional cost that they have declined to pay.

    Can the Corp search for ice with Tucana and install it if they can't afford the rez cost?

    Yes. The ice will remain unrezzed, but the Corp must reveal it to show that they could not rez it.

  • Updated 2023-10-04

    If the Corp installs and rezzes ice with Tucana, can 419: Amoral Scammer expose it?

    No. Only unrezzed cards can be exposed, and 419’s ability does not resolve until after the ice is already rezzed.

Reviews

Tired: Install a Snare! on a remote and bait the runner into it.

  • 4 credits + 1 install = 3 net damage and 1 tag

Wired: Be Ob Superheavy Logistics: Extract. Export. Excel. and install ZATO City Grid in a remote behind a Bathynomus, when the runner approaches Bathynomus rez both and trigger ZATO on Bathynomus and Ob tutor Ping onto the currently run server

  • 6 credits + 2 installs + limited ID choice = 3 net damage and 1 tag

Inspired: Continue to be Ob Superheavy Logistics: Extract. Export. Excel.. Install some 1 cost card you can easily rez maybe Malapert Data Vault. Put Tucana (the terrifying bird that's on the card above) in a remote with an agenda, might as well be a face up one since you want the runner to run it so maybe Oaktown Renovation. Before the runner breaches the remote, rez your 1 cost card and rez Tucana. When they steal the agenda, fire Tucana to install Stavka on a new remote - then use Stavka to trash the 1 cost card - finally use Ob tutor to put a Snare! inside the server that the runner is still waiting patiently in forcing them to access it and if you still somehow have money left over fire Snare!

  • 1 + 2 + (4 - 3) + 4 = 8 credits + 3 installs + limited ID choice + 2 agenda points = 3 net damage and 1 tag and probably some super rare achievement

You can also do this out of A Teia with just a Snare! in HQ (just put any ice on the sister remote).

in jinteki you need more inf for it, though-

This is incorrect.

You must rez it if it has no additional costs and you can afford to. Otherwise you may decline additional costs, and won't rez if you cannot afford to. You must reveal if you don't rez.

Also more importantly it's ice, not ICE.
