I like this card a lot.  It is click-efficient and puts me in control.  Also, when installed with The Supplier, you can set X equal to 2 and install it for free.  Great for decks that rely on combos but can't tutor for that needed card.  I can keep peeking at the top card until I find one I want, then draw it. 

 

The Supplier won't work here, because the power counters placed are equal to the cost you pay. The Supplier reduces the cost and with it the value you get out of this. The same applies for Career Fair.

 

See FAQ page 17.

Actually, BWBI and TWIY* are the worst. Custom Biotics is fantastic for fast-advance strategies, coupled with some yellow cards. Plus, it doesn't care about the NAPD Most Wanted List.

They are all bad. Let's just leave it at that. I happen to like Grndl, you can like Biotics.

No, Custom Biotics is the worst. GRNDL at least does something.

This is a perfect example of a card that took time to become viable. Every second runner deck is running Levy, and Clone Chips are still just as common as they have always been, not to mention removing Parasite. Most decks should consider at least one.

And basically makes Whizzard the bane of every Asset-based recurssion deck that is to come. So when Jackson Howard is gone for good, the agenda flood will be a bit too real. Only a Current Event with similar effects can save the game when we reach that point.

 

Until then, we still have Elizabeth Mills. The All-Seeing I is around forever too. Resources are still a tag away from oblivion, and they always will be. The effect is strong, but this is easy to remove from the table.

 

All manner of fast advance still won't care about this, nor will tag-storm.

 

Thus, the downside, as I see it, is that this card will simply make NBN stronger relative to the other corporations, especially once E. Mills is gone. That's been the weakest part of the design, at least for me -- yes, one faction is generally going to come out on top, and that's fine, but why they keep reinforcing that strength, both directly and indirectly, I find unfathomable.

 

But, if you're worried about running a recursion deck with this around, try Allele Repression, which will continue to be just fine.

Oh. Note that it says "of an accessed card" and "instead of trashing it". The first one is counterproductive when playing Political Operative, the second one nullifies Gravedigger, Hostile Infrastructure, Red Herrings, Old Hollywood Grid, Ronald Five and Strongbox.

Yes! Finally something to kill IG with. But why is it Anarch? Why is every good card Anarch?

Is there a reason for the absurd power creep that is lately observed?
 
It is hard to miss the obvious comparison from the very first cycle - Dedicated Server is an asset with the same Trash cost, the same influence cost (and is not neutral), lower rez cost and provides the same amount of recurring credits but only for ice.
 
So you get more utility for less initial investment, forcing the Runner into a bad exchange no matter what. I see that powerful cards are needed for every game, but a certain level of balance needs to be observed, at least when designing an Asset/Upgrade.
 
I expect this to be the second card to recieve the amazing "this card is now Unique" errata. My marker is ready.

Yeah, it probably should get the unique hammer.

It's brutal in a Midseason tagstorm deck. It deconstructs the runner's entire rig.

Just as expected, this card makes it almost impossible to keep up with the Corp installing Mumba Temples and Museums. Those kind of combos really break the game.

 

Now, I know Salsette Slums will actually scratch all of that, but then the Corp will hardly have any recurssion options left, while the Runner can cycle the Stack for days.

 

The design went in a really bad direction.

Or you can play Scavenge and reinstall it for free. It's quicker, cheaper and doesn't require any secondary condition to be met.

What also comes to mind are the Cerberus heads. If you happen to run into a piece of ICE for which your Cerberus head does not have enough power counters left, you can break it with Brahman and redraw the head, possibly with Oracle May, to reinstall it right after. Or splashed in Anarch, coupled with D4v1d.

I think this card was printed for Consumer-grade hardware.

Well, it's certainly a card for run-heavy Shaper decks. Those which use DaVinci and Datasucker. Perhaps combined with John Masanori to gain the drawing power of a Diesel every turn.

 

Or splashed in a Ken 'Express' Tenma deck. He has enough influence and Criminals certainly need more drawing power.

 

It would almost seem to make sense as a one-of with Hostage, but Mr. Li exists, and it's really hard to see how this has any actual advantage over Mr. Li in most Criminal decks. Alas, we're losing both soon enough . . .

 

but splashing this ahead of SMC or Test Run?

As far as I understand it, this is not an economy card. It's a psychological card that tempts the Corp to not rez a specific ICE. Of course it won't prevent the Corp to rez that ICE if they really want to, but it's getting more unattractive.

You know what card had an effect very similar to this one? Power Nap. I predict that Exclusive Party will see exactly the same amount of play.

That install cost, though. 

 

I'm just not liking the deva breakers thus far.

 

Agreed. Seems like it's scaled against Crypsis. Needed to come out in 2012.
