A new HB identity is included in this pack:



along with new tools to make bioroid ICE more problematic...



But there's also a new Shaper identity (who've we read about before):



and some more goodness for all the Runners out there:




Plus some more cards



Can't wait for this pack to arrive. I know it's not a popular ID, but I've had some reasonable success playing Stronger Together and was sad that it would be retired with rotation. Architects looks like a decent replacement...

Yeah. I'm sad about the IDs as well. We clearly see Stronger Together and Chaos Theory substitutes. IMVHO Smoke is awesome, but less universal than CT (built-in Cloak instead of 1 MU).

On the other hand - we still have about a year to play competitively using first two cycles. It's kinda weird that things like Windfall, Window and Push your luck won't rotate and Interfaces and NEXTs will.

PS I still hope for a (semi)official eternal format.

I just noticed in the card fan section something called "Preemptive Action":

OPERATION: Terminal
After you resolve this operation, end your action phase.

Shuffle 3 cards from Archives into R&D. Remove Preemptive Action from the game instead of trashing it.

Some more post-JH support (much needed).

I know a lot of people are saying she's just a Chaos replacement, but I'm pretty stoked to see Smoke as a runner. Been seeing her on cards for quite a while now. Also, all the stealth breaker support she's getting could make her pretty solid. Was thinking about bringing Nasir out again till I saw her card

It can only be one influence at most, so at parity with JH.

So, Citadel Sanctuary, why doesn't the trash ability say "Prevent any amount of meat damage"?

Why does Khan say "hand", and not "Grip"?

But the cost already includes trashing your hand. IHW wouldn't go off anyways.

Bookmark to the rescue!

But Preemptive Action is way worse than Jackson! To discard cards you have to overdraw and end your turn. Then - on your next turn - you can play the card. Which means your agendas are lying for the whole Runner's turn in the archives.

Sure you can play Reuse first and then PA. But are you really going to play this bombastic combo? JH saves from a very bad start (and Noise). This card... well.. is not.

I never claimed it was better than JH, but rather performs one of his abilities (which have been broken up among several different cards). JH did so much at the right time that I'll experience a degree of withdrawal once he's retired.
