If the runner trashes the card with his last click, nothing happens?

Seems so: should say "if able." Maybe that's implied with losing only a single click, but it'd be nice for clarity. It's clearly not "Spend a Click," like Strongbox.

My brain whispers Ryon Knight. But I can't figure out why; I can't conceive of a reliable way to apply this to that.

 

Also, a Bioroid Asset. 

 

No "if able" text.

 

Murky flavor.

 

I don't know, this card seems like filler to me, not fully thought out and of questionable value.

I'm so sad Almost Human was cancelled by Fox before this card came out. Dude looks very similar to the robot on that show.

Also, I don't think this card is that good.

Look at this as an HB attempt at replicating perfection - protect this only (Turing makes thematic things happen), run Enhanched Login Protocol and spam away your asset economy. The downside is, of course, third click runs, but then again, Ryon Knight, as KillerShrike said.

 

On the other hand, trying to play around this by playing without clicks gives natural boost to Bioroids, for they will have to be broken. Maybe this is the card that will make Stronger Together worth revisiting? NB: still janky, but sounds fun.

 

Also, Heinlein Grid. Given the wording of Ronald Five, you are losing a click even if you don't have one, so Heinlein should still trigger... unless the Runner trashes it first.

 

This would have been loads better if it was "The Runner must spend a click the first time he trashes a Corp card this turn." but right now timing priority and rez windows puts him in the "do not consider" pile. A pity, it might have been a nice show.

I know that Controlling the Message only has 12 influence, but could Ronald Five be a good include as a 1-of? This combination would allow the tag to stick, or at least further restrain the Runner.
