It sounds like you have never actually played with Sherlock. This is not Magic. The choices we make in Netrunner cannot directly correlate. You seem to think that making the Runner lose two CLICKS is insignificant. Stop assessing Sherlock in a vacuum. In case you missed the decklist, this is a fast advance deck. If the Runner uses two CLICKS to break Sherlock that is half their turn wasted dealing with one single ICE. If the Runner lets the subroutines trigger than they are getting two key programs bounced to the top of their deck that they will have to redraw and reinstall. Either way they are taking a tempo hit. If the Runner wants to use credits to break Sherlock that is even better. Sherlock taxes the Runner. Plain and simple.
Destroying programs is not always the best answer especially against Shaper. Also, putting cards back on top of their Stack means that the Runner is not drawing into new cards like Account Siphon. I rarely see Runners using link so having a 4 strength trace is nothing to scoff at. The difference between 4 and 5 means that the Runner has to spend 2 Datasucker tokens as opposed to 1.
Clearly I am not going to be able to change your mind because you have never even tried using the card.
I never said Daily Cast was bad in Noise. I said during play testing with this specific version of Noise I had money problems while using Daily Casts.
Its harder to guarantee a successful run with this Noise deck so Dirty Laundry really isn't a good option.
That is exactly what you are doing and you are being condescending and rude.
There is no perfect answer in Netrunner. People are allowed to have differing opinions. You are not always right. Good day.
