Yeah Mirrormorph might not be the route to go, but the premise of low cost ETR ICE could have merit, if supplemented with econ ICE like Caduceus and the big destroyers like Grim who re-enable the “binary” ETR ICE once the runner has breakers.
It’s not unreasonable for an opening board of three ICE (R&D, HQ, remote) and for a first turn of: Hedge Fund, ICE remote, Agenda. The corp is now on $8 with only archives open.
HB have some decent economy ops so you don’t have to spend influence on that. Just an idea at this stage, but the more viable cheap ETR ICE there is, the better it becomes. Popup and Caduceus are ideal for it, Wraparound probably gets a look in too.
