So, this and Open Market is money, yeah?

Kind of.


-  You want the draw earlier (preferably before/during marshalling) than the Open Market provides


-  If you don't have a discard outlet, the Solar is a deterrent to incoming Intrigue challenges.  If you have an Open Market out, a good player realizes you will trigger the Solar in Dominance anyway, so you lose the backup utility the Solar provides if you don't have a discard outlet.


-  If you are running Open Market, you are running Summer.  If you are running Summer, you should run birds/Sam.  If you run birds/Sam, you get 2 valid draw engines but the Solar doesn't work as efficiently if you accidentally cap (I know, first world problem, but whatever).


It isn't bad, necessarily, but I feel like you have to go a little out of your way to use it by including Summer and waiting until Dominance.
