Imaginary Cards


This thread is pretty old.
I’m going to make a new one.


There is absolutely no reason to make a new thread, though?


You should change the wording to “the runner does not lose to flatline this turn” cause with the current wording, you do the id ability first and then flatline with EMP.

However, I would prefer something to the lines of. “click, forfeit an agenda: do meat damage equal to the agenda in you score area. Use this ability only once per turn”. Offers more interesting choices for the corp imho


Click: Deal 3 Meat Damage is a messed up ability.

Click: Deal 5 Meat Damage is outright broken.


In a post-Clot world, I dreamed up this card:

Program, Virus, Crim 3 Influence, 4 Install cost
Trash Lump if the Corp purges virus counters.
Trash Ability: Remove one advancement on an installed card


Tamijo, it is once per turn and forfeits an agenda. Along the same lines, Archer would be broken.
Not to mention that it is replacing another ID ability.


Talon Operators:
Click, Forfeit Agenda: The runner suffers meat damage equal to the advancement requirement. The runner cannot be flatlined this turn.


“equal to the agenda in you score area”
Do you mean # of agendas?


Threader: Cost 0, MU 0, Strength 1, (Criminal, Program, Icebreaker, AI, Consumer Grade, Restricted).
When you install Threader, gain 3 credits.
3 credits: +2 strength.
3 credits: Break 2 ice subroutines.
Limit 6 per deck.

Needs a lot of balancing.
Criminal early game icebreaker. Synergizes with breaking-and-entering suite.
Cannot combine with Aesop due to restriction.


Predictive Manipulator: Cost 0, (Criminal, Resource, Virtual).
Whenever you reveal a card from HQ, gain 1 credit.

Late game synergy with all those other useless cards, like Bug, Executive Wiretaps, and Predictive Analyzer.
Can be countered with Firefox.


Yeah, number of agendas.


Rorschach - 0
HB Upgrade - Ambush - ••••
If Rorschach is accessed from R&D, the Runner must reveal it.
When the Runner accesses Rorschach, add it to the Corp’s score area as an agenda worth 1 point unless the Runner spends :click:. Ignore this ability if the Runner accesses Rorschach from Archives.
Trash: 0


1 net damage is about equal to 1 click.
However, “Shock!” costs 2 to trash and triggers in archive.
The possibility of becoming an agenda is interesting.


I like the idea of the Corp gaining it as an agenda worth positive points rather than the runner as an agenda worth negative points. Could be nice and thematic too: the corp is monitoring runner behaviour in order to teach bioroid neural networks how to creatively respond to threats.

It might struggle to actually find room in a HB deck. If it could fire from archives or had a trash cost then it could be a top tier card. As it is, it’s maybe about on a par with Space Camp.


Perhaps it can be used exclusively in click-lock combos. In that scenario, you would be gaining an agenda point instead of costing the runner a click, which is vastly superior. The # of support cards needed is concerning however.
This ambush may help create a create/support a new/weak archetype.

Here’s an idea: Instead of not triggering in archives, it doesn’t trigger under another scenario like Shi Kyu and Psychic Field.
Does not trigger if installed + high trash cost = A semi-permanent landmine to keep in HQ for safety that costs maximum hand size instead of clicks and credits via ice.


*Deerstalker - 2
Anarch Hardware - Console - 2 inf
+1 mem
Your maximum hand size is increased by 5.
Whenever you would suffer any amount of damage, instead suffer that much damage plus 1.
Limit 1 console per player.


Not a specific comment on this card (though it applies), but you always come up with such thoughtful and interesting designs, @greyfield. Thank you for posting!




Sunset Initiative: 45/15.
Whenever you rez a piece of deflector ice, end the run.

This ID would primarily be late game glacier, and use both deflector ice and ice relocation.
An example: Installs Miraju in front of HQ. Uses Tenma Line to move it to the back of the server.
Runner breaks past an Ashigaru and an Anansi, but Miraju is rezzed and ends the run.


Conversely, you can ETR with your ID and it can’t be prevented outside of Employee Strike…
