We were missing the NBN cards and man, now that I’ve seen them… what a huge disappointment.
The illicit ICE is probably the worst of the bunch, and the Operation… it’s one of those cards that you could actually use, if only you weren’t alread limited by the complex deckbuilding of the Corps. When you have to add a certain amount of Agenda points, a lot of economy cards, plenty of ICE… not much space left for less than optimal cards.
Shipment from SanSan might be useful in an iceless NBN deck, but it’s not exactly a very successful type of deck, is it?
Looking at the opposite side, well, Freeloader is kinda huge.
Think at Escher + Freeloader. You rearrange ICE so that there’s at least 2 copies of the same piece where you want them, for example in front of Archives and at the bottom of that huge vertical server the Corp built just to make it impossibly expensive for you to pass. BAM, you’re in by just passing one single ICE in another server.
Edit: on Second Thought, that Shipment from SanSan is actually very good, at least / especially in an extreme fast advance. If you have SanSan installed too, you could pay 0 credits for a 3/2 Agenda, and with Engineering the Future and Biotoic Labor, for example, you’d just have to pay for the BL, so it’s very good in HB FA too.
