Hey! I recently got into Netrunner and I am building my first Corp-deck. I was watching a couple of tournament matches to get some inspiration when I came across this video of a final being played:



The part that pertains to my question starts at about 2:32.

To run it down the Corp player uses Power Shutdown to trash all the cards in the R&D. Then proceeds to use the Jackson Howard "Remove from game"-ability to get three specific cards from Archives (which he then would use to do a lot of meat damage).

My question is, why does he get to pick exactly which cards to get from the Archives?

If the cards are discarded face down with the Power Shutdown, shouldn't they also be chosen face down with Jackson? Am I missing a vital rule here?

I tried to Google this but found nothing helpful, hope this hasn't been asked to death!

Thanks!

Power Shutdown
Play only if the Runner made a run during his or her last turn.

Trash X cards from the top of R&D. The Runner trashes 1 installed program or piece of hardware with an install cost of X or less.

Jackson Howard
(click) Draw two cards.

Remove Jackson Howard from the game:
Shuffle up to three cards from Archives into R&D.

The Corp can always look at the face down cards in Archives. So, when using Jackson Howard's trash ability, the Corp can look through all cards in Archives.

Quite funny mistake from the corp in that game. Would have lost the game without Punitive Counterstrike in hand by calculating the combo wrong. I guess the turn went like 1. Power Shutdown, use Jackson, 2. Diagnostic combo but play 0 of the revealed cards, 3 Punitive Counterstrike.

He did actually play the SEA source for 2 credits off the Diagnostics. But yeah, corp almost punted that game.
