Assuming I understand the timing correctly, if one were to play Apocalypse while Consume was installed, Consume would gain a virus counter for each corp card trashed, then be turned face down but retain all virus counters. So if Assimilator was later installed, Consume could be flipped face up and then the virus counters could be exchanged for credits.

The only problem is, if someone can actually fire Apocalypse they're most likely in the late stages of the game and using 4 clicks and 5 credits to spend those virus counters is a bad use of the huge opening Apocalypse provides, even if Consume has 10+ counters.


Is Keyhole the only other runner card besides Apocalypse that actually trashes corp cards? This does seem like it could easily fit in a Key-Eater deck.

Never mind, my search parameters were off.
