Kudos for the list :)


Otherwise this AI looks pretty solid, and it is in Criminals. Isn't this the first Criminal AI at all? Why the sudden love?

Meta-dependent, but it does give Criminals (finally) a way to deal with traps/Chimera/Mother Goddess in-faction. It's also more efficient than in-faction fracters against a wide-variety of low-end barriers.


Not terrible and often useful, at least in the right deck.

That install cost, though. 


I'm just not liking the deva breakers thus far.

Faust is 3. This is 6. It's like install costs are just determined by a random number generator.

Agreed. Seems like it's scaled against Crypsis. Needed to come out in 2012.
