I’ll go against the grain on a few of these. I’m not an NGO believer yet. Or at least not a hype man for it. To me, it’s a one-shot Melange that makes up for trashing itself by being a bluff. I’d also compare it to a Hostile Takeover that doesn’t give you a point (or a BP). In either case, it seems to be balanced well. I think the strongest play is popping it mid-run just to rez some big nasty ice the runner didn’t expect.
I also don’t think Distract the Masses is that terrible. Giving the runner money isn’t great, so you don’t want to play this willy-nilly. But 2$ is also not very much money. Anti-flood cards are important in anything that’s not a rush deck, and so far Preemptive Action is the only other anti-flood card that Weyland and HB can use influence-free (Genotyping and Special Report being the other factions’ options). This can also be recursion in exchange for cards you don’t want anymore (Punitive/Hunter Seeker comes to mind). So yeah, I’m not itching to put it in my deck, but I think it’s an option for Purple and Green, and it will definitely see play in limited formats like Cache Refresh or CoreTara/Modern.
I also want to say that I’m a fan of any cards that make glacier or “traditional” Netrunner more viable, and this pack has 3 great options for those strategies: NGOF, SSLE, and Jinja.
