The previous review are correct. But I will add other thought about this card.

First, it is a 2/3 agenda. Just this make it an excellent for any deck, especially rush deck. Here Medical Breakthrough is good. So is Project Yagi-Uda.

Second, it combine goes well with corp who plan with mostly one pointers and two pointers agendas. Creating the condition to damage significantly the runner.

Third, it combine even better with negative agenda points : Shi.Kyu, Hangeki, News Team, Meridian. If the corp incorporate those, it is possible to have 12 negative agenda in the corp deck (using 15 influences). The more negative and positive agendas the runner has, the more it is likely to flatline the runner by scoring Philotic Entanglement.

Fourth, it combine also with damaging agendas : Obotaka Protocol, Fetal AI, Sting!, House of Knives. All those will allow you to grind the cards of the runner quite a bit. Especially if you use Jinteki Personal Evolution.

It is such a fantastic agenda for Jinteki. If you are a reader of Ender's game (or have watched the movie), Philotic might tell you something. "Prepare the Ansible".

Fetal AI is part of the agenda suite, with Sting! and Obotaka Protocol, which allow Jinteki to flatline the runner. It self protect itself in 3 ways.

First, it cost 2 creds, if you do not have that, yo cannot steal it.

Second, it will give 2 net damage (+1 if stolen, if you are Jinteki Personal Evolution), setting the runner up for other damage (like from Ronin). It is unlikely to flatline the runner, but in case of multiaccess, if one of the other card is Snare!, it is possible to outright flatline the runner. This isi why Mwanza City Grid synergize well with this agenda.

Third, it is only 2 agenda points. It might cost the corp 5 advancements, it will always be a hefty price to pay for the runner.

In a trap and ambush heavy deck, it fit right in. It is also very good for grinding the runner out of card. Jinteki many ways to kill runner.

Aside from Mwanza City Grid, it synergize well with cards like Hokusai Grid, Prisec and Ben Musashi. Along this, the corp will look to use Sting!, Obotaka Protocol and House of Knives in its agenda suite.

To top it all, the art is spooky! What could be a quote to fit with it?

<p>A quote to fit with it? It has to be short to fit on a card with so much text, so how about 'Ouch!'?</p> —
<p>@Krams : I like cards to have a quote, it gives flavor to an otherwise mechanical text. Your suggestion really encapsulate what this does. The spooky version would be "I see you". The art of this card is among the most disturbing in Netrunner, it should have a fitting flavor.</p> —
<p>"Fetal AI cry is one of the worst sounds that anyone can think of."</p> —

We have here the most used agenda in HB. Whatever the archetype, this agenda will fit. The main attraction of this agenda is the cost.

As stated in the previous review, Project Vitruvius can be scored from hand with Biotic Labor or Bass CH1R180G4. It can also be bluffed as an asset and scored next turn. This agenda has won more game for HB than any other card in faction.

The ability of the agenda cannot be overstated. Each token is the equivalent of a clickless Archived Memories. This will allow the corp to ALWAYS have access to their combo pieces. A notable one would be Game Changer, which can be trashed by the runner. Other combo can be done, be it Punitive Counterstrike, or even to get back an agenda thrown in Archives (like a runner trashing a Project Vacheron).

This is also why this is one of the most hated agenda by the runners. But who want a an easy game?

This is the most fitting agenda for HB. and the art is beautiful, if somewhat small.

Here is a newer review, building on the the precedent (but dated) last review.

Earthrise Hotel is probably the easiest drawing engine to use. At 6 cards drawn for a single install, it is pretty efficient. The really best part about it is the fact it is neutral and can be used by any runner (excepted Apex).

Comparing the drawing of Earthrise to 1 cred save is a bit misleading (but still a valid comparison). Earthrise will allow you to draw into your econ pieces without using click, making your econ card that much more valuable.

Earthrise Hotel synergize well with cards like Paladin Poemu and Career Fair. Those allow you to install it for cheaper. It work nicely with Street Peddler, let you mill your own deck even faster to get your combo pieces.

Here are the competitors to Earthrise Hotel. For comparison, let remind ourselves that Earthrise Hotel give 6 cards for 4 credits, over 3 turns.

Professionnal Contacts. Gaining a credit for drawing is incredible, letting you setup your econ as you draw through your deck. The 5 credit for install hurt a lot. Also, it is not clickless.

Blockade runner. Let you choose the best two of three card drawn. Really, no, just no. Best avoided in favor of Class Act.

The Class Act. 4 cards drawn for 4 credits. After, let you choose the best of two card drawn, once per turn. Best of all, the card are drawn out of turn, giving you some protection against card like Punitive Counterstrike. This card synergize wonderfully with Earthrise Hotel, because it allow you to choose the 2 best of 3 cards each turn.

Drug Dealer. Draw 1 card out of turn for 1 credit in turn (or 0 credit, if you do not have creds). Simply amazing, because it never stop. But the drain on you econ is real. This will basically negate a Rezeki or Data Folding to mitigate.

Sports Hopper. 3 cards drawn instantly (for 3 creds). While not used, give +1 link. If you install it with Az or with The Artist, it give the same value as Earthrise Hotel.

Zer0. Lose a card in hand to gain a cred and two cards once a turn. Work well with Anarch because of heap breaker. Losing a card is still a bummer.

There are event that can also be compared.

Diesel. Draw 3 card for 0 creds. Combine well with Earthrise to get click compression through drawing.

I've Had Worse. Draw 3 card for 1 creds. Provide some protection against damage. Combine well with Earthrise to get click compression through drawing.

Blueberry Diesel. Draw 2 card for 0 creds, but choose the best of two for the first card. Combine OK with Earthrise to get click compression through drawing.

Fisk Investment seminar. Draw 3 card for 0 creds, force the corp to draw 3 also. Combine well with Earthrise to get click compression through drawing. Dangerous because it give tempo to the corp.

At 4 credits to install, it is a significant hit on the runner. In a deck with lots of economy cards, it is well worth it. Using cards that allow you to install it cheaply is also a good idea. But drawing 2 cards clicklessly will give the runner load of options and allow the runner to make more runs and to put more pressure on the corp. Well worth the slot in a runner deck.

With Sure Gamble, Dirty Laundry is one of the most used neutral cards for runners.

What it does, it make a run cheaper for the runner. It lower the cost of the run by a net 3 creds (unaided). In a pinch, it can also gain you 3 creds if you run on an unprotected server.

The drawback is self evident : if the run is unsuccessful, you just lose the 2 creds "invested" in the run (at least). This make Crisium Grid a nemesis of this card.

If you need this card for a 3 creds gain, and if you are Criminal, you should look into Easy Mark, which will give you 3 creds without any conditions attached.

Dirty Laundry synergize well with Mystic Maemi and Public Terminal. Both will allow you to use Dirty Laundry for a cheaper cost or for free.

Dirty Laundry is very good when used with Ken, gaining an extra credit for the run. Making it possible to gain a net of 6 creds after the run.

The obvious "competitor" to Dirty Laundry is Bravado. Dirty Laundry need a successful run on any server, while Bravado need you to run on an iced server. Both will net you the same amount (generally). Bravado is more complementary to Dirty Laundry than a competitor, unless you need the slots in your deck for something else.

Outside Criminal, Dirty Laundry has value especially for deck that want to run often, rather than slow setup deck. But sometime, it is the only "burst" econ available, since it is neutral. In those cases, rethinking the identity used might gain you better results.

The art, the quote, the flavor and the effect are good. It all make this a good card for most runners.

<p>Fun fact, doing a Dirty Laundry run on a naked IAA <a href="/en/card/21039">NGO Front</a> will also fizzle the effect as it</p> —
<p>is no longer considered a server and is no longer a successful run. Sorry about the double post, accidently pressed Enter and it just happened.</p> —
