"Run Archives 3 times, your turn". I bet I said this about 6 or 7 times today.
Yes, Temujin might have jumped in influence, but it still as powerful as ever and there is no reason not to still run 2 or 3 in most decks. Smoke especially gets a lot of value out of this card. I did have to cut corners with my remaining 6 influence, which meant dropping Switchblade for Dagger, but no situation came up where it would have made a difference. I also dropped scrubber, which I did not miss either because of the lack of asset spam.
Due to the release of TD I decided to slot in one Sacrificial Construct to deal with Scorpios shenanigans, but I found Film Critic and Employee Strike were all I needed. Scorpios and influence were also the reason I dropped the Clone Chips, which nearly cost me a game because of Marcus Batty, but luckily I had Atman as a back-up.
In total, I played 4 matches: Jinteki PE, Blue Sun, Nisei Division and Scorpios. Went undefeated against them. The only changes I would make is dropping Pol Op for the Turning Wheel, and maybe changing the one of Ghost Runner for a third copy of Net Mercur or a second copy of Sacrificial Construct if Scorpios becomes more popular.
