Worth of this card is measured in the amount of ice it can break, which currently are mostly sentries. Considering the influence cost and the faction it is in, it might not be worth it at the moment. If there are more barrier and codegate type ice released with the tracer subtype, that become popular, this thing will grow in strength. It is also good to note that this is from a deluxe expansion, which means it'll be around forever (with the current rotation) so it's time might come (and go) with the game's development.

First time you rez this piece of ice, it'll do nothing unless combined with Satellite Grid or Amazon Industrial Zone. The first card will give it one advancement immediately so it'll gain deal 1 net damage, and the second will allow you to advance it right away after rezzing it.

Using Woodcutter with Amazon will cause it to cost 5 for the first rez and 1-2 more for the advancements. If used with Satellite Grid and Amazon you can give it 3 subroutines with the first rez, and in theory you could keep adding subroutines on it indefinitely. There are no sentry breakers that'll break all subroutines on a piece of ice, every one will cost 1 credit more. So, it could become something that no one will want to - or can - run through. This is it's advantage compared to Tyrant, which - if it was prominent in your meta - could be punched through by Morning Star for 1 credit.

The major problem with these two ice is: They are expensive for the fact that they do nothing at first and they have low enough strength that Parasite is a problem even without Datasuckers to kill them on the same turn as they are installed. You will spend your money and time and then they get trashed. Both pieces of ice are not bad if you're playing casual games where Parasite is not so prominent. But if it is around, they quickly become dead weight.

Now... There's one new agenda that may give these cards a bit more power. Hollywood Renovation. It allows you to place an advancement on a card other than Hollywood Renovation when you advance it. This will allow you to bank your advancements on the ice and at the same time make it bigger. They're still susceptible to Parasite, but you're not wasting time only advancing the ice which might be destroyed at any time. —
Hollywood Renovation only lets you put tokens on cards that can be advanced though, which Woodcutter can't be while unrezzed. —
You say that there are no killers that break all subs. What about Faerie? Switchblade? —
And Shiv? *smirk* —
grappling hook and e3 Feedback Implants will get ou in there pretty cheap too. —
How will you use Amazon AND Satellite Grid when both are regions? —
Forgot about Faerie for some reason, Grappling Hook + E3 too. Nevertheless, I hope the point came across that this ice is not very good for the reason that it is too expensive and slow to build up and too easily disposed of. Although it can be used in casual games. —

This card seems very good for slow advance Weyland where Kati Jones can become a problem. There has been no real way to deal with her, but now just hire this man and blap her. One could maybe play space ice (Nebula, Asteroid Belt, etc.) with Contract Killers and Underway Renovation to deck the runner and blap those Kati credits. Could work. Weyland has a lot of big ice and slow advance with the new "revealed on install" agendas might make a neat deck where the runner has to run through those ice just so his deck won't disappear. And for what? 1 point. And that is when you Midseason them.

This card will be funny with a primed Old Hollywood Renovation in play. Click 1 install Contract Killer, click 2 advance OHR for 2 tokens on the killer, click 3 flip and use him. —
Liked for the use of the word "blap" —

Midseason Renovation deck: Midseason the runner for say... 10 tags. Play Psychographics on this. ??? Profit.

Seems quite plausible. Getting money with Weyland is not an issue and Midseason for a lot of tags is not a hard thing to do. It is very Weylandy. Killing all the runner's poor friends while renovating the neighbourhood.

Psychogrpahics just places advancement tokens on a card, it doesn't advance it, so it wouldn't combo with this. —
@Perkin Warbeck - And thank God for it. —
Thank God indeed... It's a good thing that it's only on slow advance. Otherwise it would be the end when you got the Seasonings on yourself. Still a very good agenda, I feel. It'll be something that the runner wants to go get ASAP, but it only gives one point and with Weyland big ice, that'll be a pain. —

The card should really only be used if one can somehow capitalise on the advancements that are put on it. Either by luring the runner in and making use of the mindgame that follows, or by using Trick of Light to move the advancements off it and scoring agendas that way.

It can let you score a big agenda by trickling advancements on it little by little while you wait for those Trick of Lights to come in, or it can allow you to flatline a careless runner if you have a Project Junebug in hand. Replacing it with a trap still leaves you with your advancement storage if the runner does not access.

Of course, one could just use a Project Junebug to achieve basically the same thing. In regard to storing advancements on a card.

The key is being able to convince your opponent that you swapped him for a Junebug when you swap him for a Philotic and to convince your opponent that you swapped him for a Philotic when you swap him for a Junebug. You are amost best with him if your oppoent knows you and knows you have both in the deck and is never sure whuch one you are using. Which makes him a great casual card for when your game is getting stale... think of him that way and perhaps he makes sense. —
OK, informative comments, thanks. —
