Architect in NEH is just that good.
Non trashable. Recurrent R & D tax.
Information on your R & D stack. This alone is worth the price of admission. Tells you when the agendas will occur. If needed assets are in the next 5 cards.
AND it lets you recur an asset AND it lets you get a card draw.
Most commonly played on R & D, but played on HQ it lets you draw a snare into your hand, and dilute agenda concentration.
If runner is running last click, you can play an agenda you trashed (for Jackson rescue) to a remote server for play.
I've actually changed my NEH quite considerably due to architect.
I love playing corporate trouble shooters / red herrings/ behind architect - a strategy I'm going to look at in the new Jinteki ID.
Especially since, IMO, leverages well with yagura
