So nice.
Not actually as nice as it seems when you compare it to the other options (Atman and Yog). Takes 2 to break measly Enigma. What Code gate is easily broken by this? Sure, if you face 2 Viktor 2.0's in a single run it saves you 3 bucks, but it still cost you a total of $7. That really is the best case scenario for Gordian, and it's still a decent trade for the corp, especially if you have to break through more than once. Not to mention the fact that the corp is going to avoid putting more than one high strength code gate on each server once this comes out. $5 to break the first Viktor 2.0 is really not good for the runner, and $7 to break Tollbooth is garbage. Overall, Yog is significantly better in a competitive deck, especially since you should be running datasuckers in the first place. Sure, tollbooth is a pain, but you really shouldn't be planning on breaking tollbooth in the first place. That's where Femme, Shutdown and Parasite come in. Viktor 2.0 is Yog's only real problem, and it can be clicked through if you are out of datasucker counters. IMO there are few decks where Gordian is the best option.
