yeah, i see so many runners just not play/install something i name. the correct play as the corp is just keep it on that card type until they break. if you switch it up every turn, they’ll just install/play when you’re on something else
one of my favourite plays, regardless if the runner is trying to play around my ID or not, is to name program to signify that i’m trying to rush out in my remote. but it could be an agenda, an NGO, or reversed accounts, but it’s a big indicator for the runner to run, and i’ll get paid for it.
i think the correct play as the runner is to hold onto things if the corp is impatient or just flood all of the named card type if you can. like install all your daily casts and liberateds on one turn instead of waiting
it’s not crazy, but like @Kopiok said, Echo Chamber is fine
i have found it greatly depends on when you ‘score’ EC though. if you get it first or 2nd, it’s usually not a problem, because the runner will generally ignore an unadvanced card in the remote early. but after you’re on six, by that point runners will often have enough to challenge your remote and keep you from scoring. it’s also possible for the runner to trash them from centrals, but you do have the option to score 9 (which is doable)
i think it’s not a bad slot at all, just that it wasn’t necessary.
i have a few comments to this
@moistloaf is correct that food doesn’t work here (except in the rare occurrence that they steal all 3 Food and/or steal something with Mad Dash / Freedom / etc.)
FC3 is basically the only other viable unicorn. as i mentioned in my write-up, the window for hunter-seeker is very small, whampoa is unnecessary with special report, a low agenda density, and just scoring out.
i can’t think of any others i’d even consider or like to have, so FC3 works really well here. and yeah, it’s kinda better than tollbooth. sure, the runner can spend their whole turn to click through it, but that’s usually fine. all the code gates here are meants to tax, not necessarily end the run. but with 3 FC3 and an enigma, you can stack them for a decent effect. the original list has FC3 and Tollbooth, but i just took the booths out. i also tried other things in lieu of FC3 and it was just a lot better.
i think if you’re on the agenda spread from Wishbone, food makes a lot of sense, especially if you include the tagging effects and Exchange of Information and things like that
