I just don't like this card. Too much variance on a limit 1 per deck card, with an effect that is overall pretty weak unless spammed. Every now and then it might snipe the game wining agenda, but most of the time it's just an annoyance to the Corp.


It does have some ability to disrupt combo decks, but other than that...


Just not worth it, most of the time.

I could see perhaps putting this in my Noise deck, as a way to move me towards decking the Corp. Especially if I can get this out early.


I am also really interested in where these Shards are going. I hope they create some cards that allow you to pull them out of your stack on demand. And perhaps a major advantage to having all of them in play, or an alternate win condition based on that.


I am really interested in the backstory of these Shards, and I am hopeful that FFG will expand on them.

Its ability to disrupt combos, like SEA+Scorch, is interesting because it will deter the Corp from even trying it. Do you really want to spend 10 creds on a SEA if you're not sure if you'll be able to finish them off? Unfortunately, as mentioned, the fact that you can only include 1 makes it unreliable.

Whats the diffrence between "discard" and "trash"?


The cards go into archives... right?

The difference is that if a card ever triggers from the Corp trashing a card, it won't trigger from them discarding one.
