I’ve seen Profiteering in a couple TWIY Rush lists now over TGTBT. What has been the empirical experience there? It doesn’t feel like rush decks really want to surrender bad pub to the runner, especially not in bulk. Then again, 15c buys a lot of SanSan time.

I’ve gotten good mileage out of the surprise tag from TGTBT, and haven’t really felt strapped for cash, on the other hand. Hmm.

My guess is you don’t want to auto-take the 15 - just take the bare minimum that you need to win with the current hand and table situation.

Thing is, 3 BP makes SanSan a trash cost 2, which I wouldn’t be too fond of, personally :slight_smile:

Exactly my question :). Is there a number that does seem worth it? If it is a niche econ card, why not Gila Hands instead?

seeing as all the ice is etr except ichi, i think he’s going for keeping people off the right breakers over taxing them, so the bp would matter less.

Yeah, TWIY is at its best gearchecking as opposed to taxing. Gila Hands is more for longer games, whereas Profiteering is great cash injection for shorter games.

The reason I took Profiteering over Gila Hands is exactly what Lysander said. If Profiteering is the first agenda scored, I’ll take 5 or 10 credits, never the full 15. If it’s the 5th point scored, I’ll often take the full 15 so I don’t have to worry about money until I score the final 2-pointer.
