I was hoping for something a little more from Eli. He represented such a strong entity in Netrunner, with clear innate ability, but a somewhat troubled demeanor; aspiring to please “the masters”.
I would’ve played on it:
4 Rez, 7 Strength
Standard 2.0 click clause
Eli 2.0 cannot be installed in a server with other ICE unless all ICE is trashed as installing. Trash Eli when other ICE are installed in his server. This ability is even active while unrezzed.
-The runner must trash an installed card.
Play on the troubles of the model. Eli’s innate strength flourished with progress, but Haas-Bioroid couldn’t inhibit his desire to please the masters by keeping things out. As they worked on and refined the model, it started to obsess and shutdown absolutely everything in his presence (even things that HB wanted to keep online). His problematic behavior undoable, but, given his proven effectiveness, HB looked past it.
The above might need some editing, but the current implementation is fairly boring, and I feel like this was a missed opportunity.
