Continuing the discussion from OFFICIAL Stimhack OCTGN League PART II:
I don’t have rights to move the posts from the SHL2 discussion. But I thought I’d move the discussion somewhere new anyway.
My thoughts on Cuj.0 are as follows. It’s the weakest of Cerberus’ heads. Lady is winning at Crufts, she’s stunning and I’ll happily throw her in a shaper deck and thank the Anarchs for their extended loan of Corroder. Anarch’s aren’t going to pay 3 inf (generally) but if it were 2 they’d think hard about it. Rex is more than passable, means you can play either Yog, Passport or both in Criminal and throw Peacock back in the binder. You’d love to have Gordian Blade (or maybe Zu - I’m not that way inclined myself) but you’d prefer to spend the influence elsewhere. Cuj.0 is sad because it isn’t a mimic.
Cuj.0 is either mimics 4-6 if you live in a Jinteki laden world and you really want to get going. It’s insurance against big sentries if you’re loaded. Noise is often loaded at the moment, but tbh he’s loaded enough to pay the Crypsis price. Truth is it’s the only pumpable Killer Anarchs have. I think it’s good to fill that design space, but it isn’t good enough to warrant a place in top decks at the moment.
Running through Komainu for 4 creds, 3 of which you can get back from Aesop isn’t a bad deal.
I think Cuj.0 could have cost 2, maybe even 1 cred. But similar could be said of Rex.
