Install an expensive program on London Library, break stuff with Brahman, play Eureka!, repeat.

That's a 4-card combo, played over 5 clicks, to get a Femme on the table for 11 (or more).


I mean, sure, if you've got a Torch waiting in the wings to play afterward, you could save a little money, but Shaper still has a lot of tested ways to get big programs out cheaply, and they don't require this AI.


This just isn't good yet. It's not good enough on its own, and it's a janky (and slow) cost-saver.

What also comes to mind are the Cerberus heads. If you happen to run into a piece of ICE for which your Cerberus head does not have enough power counters left, you can break it with Brahman and redraw the head, possibly with Oracle May, to reinstall it right after. Or splashed in Anarch, coupled with D4v1d.

Or you can play Scavenge and reinstall it for free. It's quicker, cheaper and doesn't require any secondary condition to be met.
