Chaos Theory does like this.
2 copies should replace nicely the mem chip, so it would be possible to run the best breaker suite (Corroder/Garrote/Torch) without any console/mem upgrades.
Plus some datasuckers...;-)

More dangerous, but scavenging kids on stimhack don't care much anyway.

Garrote and Battering Ram now seem to fit in any Shaper's rig (as does Magnum and SMC on standby).

I'm using three in a Nasir deck to hang Cloaks (and a Dagger), battering ram, and an MO off of. Works really well.

I'm liking this too . . . a lot.


Anyone know of any problems hanging a Scheherazade off of this? Seems like a way to infinite memory:


Leprechaun hosts a Scheherazade and a Djinn;


Djinn does it's thing and hosts 3 MU;


Scheherazade hosts an infinite number of programs, which Leprechaun doesn't "see," since it is hosting only the Scheherazade directly.


I don't need this to work in my current Professor deck, but as an experiment, that could really open up the MU possibilities while generating a nice discount on those program installs. Yes, it is vulnerable to program trashing, but that's an interesting trade-off for the Scheherazade wormhole.


Alternately, do those programs on Scheherazade still count against MU, in an odd roundabout way even while hosted on Leprechaun, since the Leprechaun doesn't "see" them? (Hosting 3 Leprechauns off a Djinn is much more clearly OK).

As I understand it, the hosting relationship doesn't iterate to descendants, so only the MU of cards hosted directly on Leprechaun don't count.


"The memory costs of hosted programs do not count against your memory limit."


"“Hosted” is always self-referential and refers to cards and tokens hosted on that card, unless otherwise noted. Cards are always hosted faceup, unless otherwise noted."


The following replaces the rules on hosting that appear in the
core set rulebook:
“Hosting” is the result of placing a card, counter, or token on
top of a card, creating a relationship between the host card and
what is hosted. If a card allows other cards to be hosted on it,
those cards must be hosted on the card when they are installed,
unless a card says otherwise.
Hosted counters or tokens can be spent without affecting their
host. If a trigger cost requires one or more hosted counters or
tokens, those counters or tokens are “spent” by being returned
to the token bank from the card the ability appears on.
If a host is trashed or uninstalled, all cards, counters, and tokens
hosted on it are also trashed. This cannot be prevented. If a host
Corp card is derezzed, all cards, counters, and tokens hosted on
it remain hosted.
The state of hosting is distinct (but not exclusive from) the state
of installing. Most cards are hosted on another card when they
are installed. If a card is hosted but not installed, the card is

Correct. Hosting is non-transitive - if you host Scheherazade on Leprechaun, anything hosted on Scheherazade still counts towards MU limits.

Thanks, guys!
