The Criminal issues have already been noted – dealing with this with Femme in the long-run is expensive. Either it eats your 'suckers or costs 4 per run. Either way, especially in HB, it’s pulling some weight.
Against Anarchs, yes, Noise is a thing, great. Pop an Architect over Archives. Sure, they might be able to break it, but if they don’t you can pull something to safety, and if they do, well, that’s a bunch of money they just spent.
(My evaluation vs. Noise might be off since I started running Dead Coats, though. In my experience he has a pretty solid chance to eat it against that build unless he does one hell of a lot more money-making than most folks seem inclined to.)
There’s also the jankiest combo, one that I quite love, which is to say:
Architect is the best for positional Ice.
No, seriously. Chum into Architect. Inazuma into Architect. Hell, even RSVP into Architect! The easiest way of dealing with positional Ice, up to now, was to murder whatever was behind it with parasite, making it invalid. With Architect, that’s no longer an option. No one outside of Jinteki (or maaaybe HB) will be trying this, but that’s fine.
Architect is worth the influence in almost every faction. My RP deck is going to looove having it.
