One of the best Agendas in the game. Good cost to point ratio and a fantastic ability. Wish the core set included 3 copies.

Is this a one off payment?... Can someone correct me if i'm wrong.

Can you used the hosted agenda counter to advance another agenda? Would it cost a click?

I'm sure the answer is obvious but i'd rather be sure.

Thanks
You can and it doesn't cost you a click.
Which is why this is the best agenda in the game in my opinion.

Effective Feb.1, 2016:

 

The NAPD Most Wanted List is a list of Android: Netrunner cards with additional deck-building restrictions. Players must adhere to the NAPD Most Wanted List for all Fantasy Flight Games tournament play.

 

Each copy of this card reduces an Identity’s influence limit by 1 when included in a deck. An Identity’s printed influence limit cannot be reduced below 1. This reduction occurs even if the card matches the Identity’s faction.

It is finally done: Netrunner Official FAQ 3.1:

 

AstroScript Pilot Program ( 81)
Should read: “Limit 1 per deck.”

 

I am not so sure about this concept of taking a completely broken card and utterly destroying it like this. Indeed, once it is printed, it is really hard to fix it, but maybe this will be a lesson to consider, that non-click action advantage is a really dangerous tool in a game where time/click balance is everything.

 

Food for thought: it would have been an interesting idea to make the card Unique - still 3 in the deck, easier to find, but once one of them is scored/stolen, the others should become immune to game effects - the Rulebook states that there can be only 1 Unique card "Active" - so the others are trashed. Or maybe the scored/stolen card is trashed?

 

Anyway, the meta will never be the same with this one small change.

I love this change, even though I like fast advance decks. Why? It makes tagstorm decks look good now! :P

It's still a very good card, even after the nerf. Being able to fast-advance a Project Beale or Merger makes this Agenda essentially worth 4 points.

 

The only thing that's not possible anymore is the nearly-unstoppable AstroTRAIN.
