I'm confused about the blackmail issue you are having. Most often, blackmail is used on a server where all ice is unrezzed, so AoT wouldn't fire anyway
That's what she would like to do and if I let her, I would never rezz a single piece of ice against that deck. But I did get to use the Executive Bootcamp or the Accelerated Betatest a couple of times. Then the idea was to feed her assets or even agendas behind rezzed ice so that I get to rezz more ice (especially over R&D) and gradually foil the Blackmail-thingy.
I think that is still hard to do... she has some breakers and enough money to get through the rezzed ice and just uses blackmail to prevent me from rezzing more. So ABT and Executive Bootcamp are my only rezzes. That feels overpowered.
Edit: It feels overpowered against this corp ID, as it just cancels my benefit. The feeling is very much like playing an empty HB ID.
