Polop has pretty limited use against sansan - all it does is save you from having to run through the remote. corp still gets their 1st FA score, and runner still has to pay 5 to trash.
@BubbaTheGoat really like the idea behind this. I’ve always felt Jinteki was a sleeper FA/rush faction; played a ton of polish tennin and harmony 2-point rush back before clot nailed their coffin lids down. The presence of snare in faction makes NA a really great plan B once clot-lock hits the table, but the problem (until now?) has always been that non-asset economy wasn’t robust enough to support building a remote.
gonna have to test more with political dealings. especially with agroplex (or DBS? idk where to find the influence for that tho…) it’s a ridiculously powerful tool, with a big “but:” but, is has an abominable rez/trash ratio, and likely needs to live multiple turns while rezzed to do work.

Usually after the Political Dealings fire once, the runner will go after it and trash it.
[/quote]to me this seems like people just haven’t yet grokked what the card can do. Being honest, I think I saw this spoiler like 4 times before I realized it’s a fast advance tool; sounds like your opponents right now might be like “ok, whatever, idk why you’d even play that card” until you score with it an they realize, “oh, it’s basically a sansan they have to pre-rez. guess i’ll spend the 3 credits whenever i see it.”
