Against small Code Gates with 3 to 4 strength, it's certainly nice. As soon as the ICE has 5 strength or more, it becomes too expensive. So don't forget your D4v1d. Like Paperclip, it combos with Inject/Making an Entrance.


Edit: fixed

Better than Force of nature!  Less reliant on Datasucker than Yog!  I'm loving the new icebreakers that are coming out and I always felt like anarch needed more decoder options.  This is fine.  Deals with more or less anything, Sometimes efficient, sometimes not.  

Solid decoder, in-faction for Anarch, not finicky like Yog, shares the install-from-archives functionality of Paperclip. I won't be surprised if we see a similar killer in coming soon to an anarch rig near you. Enables a playstyle in which you can use cards like Inject/Making an Entrance/MaxX more effectively, counting the trashed program as a benefit (clickless install) rather than a drawback.

What with this, paperclip, what is probably going to be an install-from-heap killer plus making an entrance and inject do you think Exile's beginning to wish he wasn't green?

This is very solid; very playable. Obviously great in a heap dumping Anarch deck.
