Oh, it's the first neural upgrade... ever! The card itself is nice, but putting icebreakers into heap would be better.

Oh, it's the first neural upgrade... ever! The card itself is nice, but putting icebreakers into heap would be better.

Icebreakers in heap are easily retrieved with Clone Chip/Scavenge/Deja Vu/Test Run.

Icebreakers in the stack are most easily retrieved using Special Order/Self-Modifying Code/Test Run, but chances are you ALREADY used some of those getting the breaker out to begin with.

Pretty sure this hits harder.

I'm using three of these in a Replicating Perfection glacier deck, and they have been pretty awesome.


The four to rez is not an impediment as I'm used to keeping at least $4 on hand to pop a Snare, and also holding back $4 can make the runner player jump to the conclusion that I am threatening a Snare while the Will O Wisp sits there looking like a Caprise or Ash.


Every time I land this, it buys me at least part of a turn and often more. It often trips the game from phase 1 to phase 2, or resets a phase 3 back to a phase 2 while the runner tries to tutor up their breaker again.


The only downside for me is the 1 trash cost making R&D porous. Otherwise, very solid card.
