I'm excited for Savoire Faire. That's a shaper-style ability in a criminal deck.

I'm less excited about corporate shuffle. It strikes me as redundant in a deck that's packing Action Jackson.

I got in everyone's hostile little face. Yes, these are wooden cubes from boardgaming. Yes, I'm comfortable with that. I am enlightened.

Turns out Esseb did touch the flag. Don't tell him I said so though.

Corporate Shuffle would be interesting in a Cerebral Imaging deck. If you have half your deck in your hand, you can use it to put them all back into R&D and delay the game for a log time.

Thankfully it's just the cards installed "in" the remote and not all the ICE.

It doesn't look like there are any really important details (well, influence cost) that are hidden this time.

Savoir-faire is akin to SMC, but it doesn't trash (instead it can only be used once per turn) and costs 1 MU. Would Shaper Insta-rig decks splash this, or stick with SMC and Clone Chip? Might be useful in Criminal, though--they have money to burn and a flexi-rig would be nice. Plus, it could get your Faerie out without wasting a click. Still, I'm not convinced.

Power Nap: 2cr per Double? Hope there are a lot of good Doubles in the cycle. I'm definitely underwhelmed by them so far. Though, there are seven Doubles in DT (appropriately).

Witness Tampering: 4cr and two clicks to remove up to 2 BP? That might work in GRNDL decks, I guess. We shall see.

Caprice: We already knew she was broken.

Queen's Gambit was spoiled a long time ago, too.

And then there's Corporate Shuffle. I'll probably run at least one or two of those in my NBN. Sort of like Jackson Howard, if you have too many Agendas, it'll help you refresh. Too bad it isn't as powerful as Levy AR Lab Access, but then, given that the Corp loses through being decked, a true Timetwister is probably overpowered. Plus, it's free to play--though it is a Double.

Interesting mix.

I'm torn, on one hand it seems to be the (functional) highlight of the pack, but then in a super-trim, highly agro Crim deck would this merit an include? For the cost of the click and 2 credits, would you have been better off just installing the program you wanted?

If you're really hurting for a draw, seems like you could do okay with Corporate Shuffle followed by draw 2 from Jackson Howard. So you drew 7 cards and get to throw 2 away to be returned to R&D. (Or if you liked your Corporate Shuffle, just keep it.)

Savoir-Faire, to me, is an excellent card. It allows Gabriel to continue to run without breakers until he needs them on the table.

No more installing a Femme Fatale on a piece of ICE blind. Femme that Tollbooth mid run!

Cannot wait for it!

I kind of wish Corporate Shuffle and Action Jackson weren't in the same faction.

There is something to be said for that. (I gather the timing works the same as SMC or Clone Chip--after the ice is rezzed, you have a window to react and install the Femme, and then it's the right time to bypass?)

Savoir Faire is installing from your grip.

So it essentially gives you one extra click a turn to install a program with for 2 credits.

Of course you can install instant speed.

Corporate Shuffle is a super Rework and Anonymous Tip rolled into one. Jackson Howard is like Rework and Archived Memories. Its kinda redundant, but also can't be trashed before you use it.

How about Witness Tampering putting a price on fixing BP. 4 credits and 2 clicks for up to two BP removed. Does that make GRNDL less bad?

EDIT: And, incidentally, 1 influence for those with "illicit ICE." Does this placate those who dislike Grim?

I'm amused by the idea of someone Queen's Gambiting an unadvanced Junebug and then flatlining themselves...

Edit: My amusement was shortlived.

On Power Nap:

"When I said I could hack it in my [sleep, did you think] I was joking?" -Chaos Theory

Adorable.

On Savoi-Faire:

"Predictive algorithms that fetch the program you need before even know you need it. My second favorite lady." -Gabriel Santiago

It seems Femme Fatale's as popular with the runners as Black Dalia was.
