Career Fair

Here is a list of resources with cost 3 or greater.

I don't do reviews of cards that I haven't played with, but here are some initial comments: With Daily Casts and Earthrise Hotel being popular, this card is a nice boost. Key resources, like Professional Contacts or Xanadu, need to hit the table when they're drawn, making decks looking to capitalize on Career fair need to play resources that don't need to hit the table right away. Rachel Beckman could fit in nicely there.

At the date of writing this, Criminals are the least suited to a strategy reliant on high-cost resources: there are only 3 cards on the list, and all of those cost 3. This card promises a wider variety of resources in Criminal hands, hopefully in this cycle. Strangely, I expected this type of card to include hardware after seeing The Supplier.

I doubt I'll come back to post a long-form review of this card; the economics of Modded are well explored.

Worth pointing out how this lets you suprise people with Hades Shard again. —
The comment about Criminals beign ill-suited to a high-cost resource strategy is doubley true when you consider how often Criminals find themselves dealing with self-inflicted tags. —
This card's 1 influence is a serious tell to players. FFG are effectively saying: this is strong out of faction but we want you to use it. —
There are enough tag avoidance cards in Criminal to start seriously looking at a "never tagged" strategy. The main problem with it so far is the lack of in-faction ways to slow rushing corps down besides Account Siphon. I tend not to analyse cards ITO out-of-faction tools--if you try to import everything, then you're fighting your own ID. —

I've tested this card in a bunch of decks and it perform great. Can be a perfect match with Comet to play resources in a cheap way or simply lowering the cost of some card. For 1 influence can be played everywhere, I like it a lot.

I think this card is huge for Andy, not that she needed help. It lets you set up a piece of drip econ or The Supplier or whatever else you need on your first turn, removing 2 cards from your hand for a single click. If you also have Comet in hand, you can set up pretty scary fast and still have the creds to start running. —
