Like the previous review state : Deus X will save you from Jinteki corp decks.
But there are other uses.
First, it pairs well with deck who use a lot of recursions tools. Geist, with The Back is one such identity. Geist favor trashable assets, because Geist ID trigger when using a trash effect. Thus, it pair also well with Harmony AR Therapy.
Second, Deus X will allow you to BYPASS ANY OF THE NASTIEST ICES in the game. Chiyashi, Anansi, Brainstorm, Fairchild, Tyr, Hydra to name a few. This is very useful and will save you a lot of cred. Cheap for a 3 credits install.
Third, and this is a jank, you can put Adjusted Matrix on it to make a very credit friendly AI breaker. Allowing you to click through ANY ices. It only cost you clicks.
At 1 influence, it can be used anywhere. Having one on the board can save you a lot of grief.
The only problem is that it can be completely useless against many corps archetype. Corp that favor taxing the credits of the runner for exemple. So, it is like an insurance. An insurance that will save you from being flatlined. The good kind of insurance.
The quote is so much better than the art. And the art is very good.
