thats a lot of work, and hoping that the runner doesn't care to get 5 credits or lose a BP. Not useful as far as I can tell.

Well it does only cost 1c to rez it and you can do that just before your turn starts. Seems to me that a net gain of 4c for 1 click is decent enough.
It is not really work. It is just sit and wait.

Draw, install and rez for 1$ is pretty much the same as run and trash for 3$. So no big lose if the runner cares to trash.

Same effort as Hedge Fund and Sweep Week and same prize.

It is slower than the operations and the runner can interfere but you can use that as a decoy.
There really are just better options. Adonis and Eve seem like they go into decks before this, and most decks don't have 3 of each of those to begin with.
I'd be very surprised if someone used this for economy. Maybe as an infaction BP removal but in that case it's kind of counterintuitive because if you have some BP then the runner can use that to trash so it's now 2 creds to trash and not 3. I don't really see this being used at all.
I can see something like this being put behind a startup server. Such as one with perhaps an Eli 1.0 in front of it. Now the runner encounters the Eli (or any other time synch ice) and spends their whole turn running into your small econ card and spending three credits. All with little investment. And there is the possibility that the runner will just leave it alone. Which is ok as well, since afterwards when the credits are taken you can reuse the server.
I have Fenris in my deck and so I use this card to remove the bad publicity and I have played games where it was trashed and games where it was left alone. I think this card really shines in that it has duel uses. I think its a decent card.

Since you rez this before your turn begins, it will take two additional turns before you get your payout. Not a great econ card on its own, but 1 to rez and 3 to trash isn't bad.


In some ways, it's actually comparable to Adonis Campaign in that it has an upfront cost of 1 and costs 3 to trash. Of course, Adonis pays out more over time and is the better card. But if you wanted a deck where you made a protected Asset server for your Adonis and wanted to cycle through assets, this could actually be a better fit than Eve.


Also a good target for Architect out or archives. If I don't have to draw and install it, I'll trade 1 for 3 with the runner all day. Of course, there are lots of fun targets for Architect, with Adonis being better unless you simply can't afford the rez cost of Adonis.

who is adam?:))

who is adam? :))


Hahaha, thanks. I'm going to correct my post for clarity. I always think Adam and Eve with those two.
