psi needs to be a thing, and this id needs more comments

I'm going to try a loaded-up Psi deck. The thing that most interests me here is that, unlike so many other cards out there, the ability for Nisei Division is not limited to once per turn, or even once per run. Stacked Psi cards might do something.


I don't have high hopes, but I've been a Jinteki fan since the beginning, so I like to try out new things with them. Tori Hanzo/Mamba might be terrifying, and maybe putting a lot of Psi out there can burn down the Runner's economy at the very least.


Competitive? Maybe not yet, but Jinteki often (still) surprises me.


Plus, the card is pretty.

While it does limit your deck building in a certain way, this Card seems underrated and overlooked, in my opinion. As Meadbeard mentioned, Psi Cards will drain the runner's economy at worst, or have strong effects at best. This ID emphazises that fact.

Maybe if there were a couple more solid Psi cards to build around, it would be more of a thing. But currently it's kind of slim pickings for Psi cards and you end up feeling compelled to include most of them instead of more viable normal cards just to leverage the ID.


Also, while Psi does tax the runner a bit, it also taxes the Corp. And though the ID lessens the tax on the corp it doesn't remove it altogether.


Also, RP and PE have such strong abilities in the current card pool, and Tennin can be pretty viable as well, that the other Jin ID's have a lot to compete with. Is getting a minor econ boost for Psi better than potentially costing the runner a click per turn, or zapping cards out of their hand on a semi-regular basis? With more, stronger Psi cards in the pool the power of the cards might make that a "yes", but currently I don't think so.


Also, the Psi games are by their very nature unpredictable / high-variance. Competitve decks favor low-variance. High-variance is for dark horse contenders that take people by surprise rather than front runners.


Beautiful card art, great idea, and with a little more love could be a thing, but IMO it isn't supported well enough yet to be competitive. But really, one killer Psi card and one strong Psi card could be enough to turn this ID on as a real threat.
