In a deck with other advanceable Ice, Lycan might be more effective. Is it a Lycan or an Ice Wall? Do I want to find out right now? It’d be at its best to deter early runs, and then swap the type to whatever the runner won’t be able to deal with, making them dig for another breaker. As you say, not as good as Grim for what Grim does, but as a quasi-gear check I think it’ll do nicely, though it’s rather pricey. Still, I like the shift toward Ice that changes its type.
Leela is… interesting, for sure. I really can’t tell how good her ability will be, especially against FA, but as/if FA becomes less prevalent, she’ll continue to get better. I’m glad her abillity triggers on scoring as well as stealing, I think that’s going to make all the difference (up the triggers, at the very least). Kind of wish there was a way to make it a rezzed card without having to Shutdown it, then steal something, but that’d be definitely going too far in the other direction, I’m just not certain how much this’ll hurt the Corp, generally speaking (easy to concoct situations where it’ll do amazingly, though, with multi-access).
Bifrost’ll be nice just to get more counters on an Efficiency Committee. Honestly, I think it’s the 3/1 that NEXT Design has been wanting – though as Arkhon said in the other thread on this, I’d want to know if Advancement Counters stay on when something is scored (for an overscored Vitruvius or Ares, say). Even without, making EC, ABT, and PriReq happen on 3/1 is potentially huge. Also, the flavour text makes me happy.
Curious just what Snatch and Grab will be – it looks like some sort of connections-related thing?
EDIT: Love Leela’s flavour-text, too, actually. Still sad Nasir seems to not have any.
