Mirror-verse Exile.


In theory, this could be a good ability, and 1 link plus "normal" min / inf is nice.


I guess we also now know who the [Trash]: break 3 subroutine ice breakers are for. 


I'm nominally hopeful that this guy turns out to be playable; criminal has some decent trash me cards, plus some neutral ones, and maybe some imports such as Clone Chip.

I picked up Geist a day or two ago and have been playing a few games with him. My first day impressions is he is a very underrated runner. The B&E (Breaking & Entering) Suite (Shiv, Crowbar, Spike) are just as underrated. Especially when you get that 2nd link through cards like Forger (Underway) or Dyson Mem Chip (Trace Amount). I was able to get into a 4 ice deep server thanks to his breaker suite...with only 2 creds. Sunny's breaker suite (Sherman, Shrike, Striker) along with Security Chip (Data & Destiny) are amazing includes in any Geist deck.


Security Chip helps pump up the B&E suite while Sunny's breaker suite provides a solid set of breakers to fall back on when you don't feel like using a trash breaker. Clone chips are also a must in a Geist deck since recurring the B&E suite not only gives you a breaker it also gives you a free card thanks to Armand's ability. I have noticed though that if you don't run some form of deck recursion he can run out of steam at somepoint & he does take a bit of time to get setup. Overall though I do recommend people give Geist a try. :)

some form of recursion is pretty much mandatory I think. Plus I ran Overmind, firstly to boost the B&E strength and also to benefit from Dyson Mem Chips +1 MU. Overall though I really liked playing Geist.
