Everything is relative to perception, and your perception is limited.

Hi, I know this has been discussed awhile back, but just want t make sure there aren't further odd interactions, with the current cardpool.

It has always been possible to have negative strength ice, but if Bishop sees more play, it could be relatively common. So, what ramifications could there be for negative strength ice (if it can, in fact, exist)?

Parasite accounts for this by saying, "0 strength or less", with regards to trashing it.

Atman, I would assume couldn't break negative strength ice, since you can't make it negative strength.

Any other effects/interactions?

Many thanks!

Lukas did confirm ICE can have negative strength. As far as other reasons that are significant, cant think of any right now. Anyone else?

Yeah so far the only things that can really lower ICE strength are Parasite or Wyrm (and Bishop as mentioned), and I don't think there would be any significant reason to interact with ICE via Atman with either of those cards dropping the strength below zero.

Though, I guess, maybe using Ice Carver on zero-strength ICE might make them negative as well?

Correct. A 0 strength Atman would not be able to break a Rototurret if an Ice Carver was in play.

The only other interaction that was not yet mentioned (perhaps since it's probably quite obvious) is Corporate Troubleshooter - you're increasing the strength from the negative number, not from 0.
