Perhaps the definitive Criminal card. Just completely back-breaking when timed correctly.

When you see it coming just rez everything you have and it's useless. Providing you have unrezzed goodies.
Even then it's a powerful "Rez everything you can or lose 5 credits" card.

I wouldn't say forcing you to spend all your money is useless to be honest. Sure I don't get anything, but I'd say Siphon is mostly played to deny the corp money, not as an economy card.

You can't rez everything. Ice can be rezzed only when approached so you can only raise your assets/upgrades.

Netrunner's best card, but Sure Gamble is in more decks.
Eats up so many influence dots in non-blue decks, but... worth it!

"Best" as in "most powerful". Not necessarily best-designed or most balanced.

what is the meaning of "take 2 tags"? Does it mean that I, the Runner, get to 2 gps tags?
    • GankreyBepsy and WallaceVox like this

@JazeStream It means you are tagged twice in response
