It’s that time again, folks. For today’s challenge I thought we’d take a look at designing something much more core to the game, and that’s econ cards. Specifically neutral ones that all factions have access too. These provide the standard for how money flows in the game and are extremely important to shaping the meta the other cards live in. Right now the runners are living on the trio of Sure Gamble, Daily Casts and Dirty Laundry (rip Bloo Moose), while corps are on Hedge Fund, IPO, Pad Campaign and NGO Front. With that in mind, lets try to come up with some helpful all-purpose econ cards that would positively shape the floor of the game.
- Make a neutral econ card. It can be for runner or corp.
- It doesn’t have to be raw money, discounts (modded, etc) and other effects are allowed as well.
- While having a runner IPO would be fine, try to be at least a little more creative than just “Pay X, Gain Y”.
Runner - Neutral Event

Install a card from your grip, lowering the install cost by 2c, then make a run. If the run was successful, draw a card. If the run was unsuccessful, return the installed card to your grip.
