$2 and 2 MU for a single draw that will trigger non-determinisitically? Um, no thanks.


Even on Leprechaun this just seems like a waste.

3 of them (its not unique) could be powerful. One rez draws 3 cards?

Not worth 6 mu...

The card is usefull in a starting hand when the corps has no rezzed ice. Since you don't need icebreakers yet, the mu cost is manageable. Midgame+ it won't pay off it's high cost.

Could see use in criminal decks using early agression and frequent derezzing. The corp WILL rez ice and clickless card draw is very powerfull for the runner.

There are far easier ways to draw cards than this, which takes considerable setup and sucks the MU into oblivion, even for Shaper. Drawing is about speed: this thing is the definition of clunky and slow.


Are we hoping for a bunch of these in the initial draw, then face-checking AP ICE to draw a few cards, or are we waiting for the mid-game, when we're already set up with daemons and memory boosters and Icebreakers . . . when we don't need the draw as much?


Are we (gasp) tutoring this thing? Exchanging control for a little random draw?


Here's hoping the corp has Chimera . . .



Well, I'm not crazy about this card, especially at 2 MU. It certainly isn't a good draw engine. It potentially has some use as extra protection against ICE that do net or brain damage, making it a little easier to break into a Jinteki PE server safely, for example. And it is more generally useful than something like Net Shield, which can be a totally dead draw in some matchups.
