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

Surge seems rather good.

Whirlpool was a card I expected to see.

Rework seems rather odd, I guess it is protects against getting too many agendas in HQ.

HQ interface is very nice, can pressure HQ even more so, much better than Nerve Agent since it doesn't need to be built up.

Also nice to see more Hardware.

...yikes. Surge looks like it could be devastating in a proper Medium/Nerve Agent deck. I'm less confident in HQ Interface, but I like that it's hardware, not program. Rework...I guess if you're stuck with cards in hand, maybe.

Whirlpool looks like it could be really powerful if done correctly. Which is to be expected--Jinteki.

Woo Hoo Jack Attack is reborn!



Granted its a one shot like data mine but you will need Crypsis or Wyrm to kill it.



This will make bullfrog a deadly choice!

Finally we see some more spoilers.

Surge seems solid. Probably best to kickstart a Medium.

HQ interface seems like a good card. Makes HQ runs more productive, doesn't eat up memory like Nerve Agent, can't be cleansed. I'd even consider splashing this in Shaper, as they tend to lack HQ pressure.

Rework doesn't seem quite good enough. If it was like draw 2 then shuffle 2 in, it'd be great. It's nice to get agendas out of hand, but I don't think I want to spend an action and a draw just to go down another draw.

Whirlpool is cute, but I'm really not sure how reliable it is. Yes, it lets you go Whirlpool -> Bullfrog -> Take the runner into a Death Server, but that's going to require probably a lot of set up, during which time the runner can run wild. Also, Crypsis/Wyrm breaks it for very little, and Crypsis is hella popular right now.

Maybe shuffling a Snare! back into R&D, maybe..? Or dropping a late-game card back into R&D.... I suppose it "extends" the game by a turn...

Dunno...

Aw man! I've been waiting for Jack Attack for months!

(I figured it'd be the PSI sentry, but I'll take this, it's WAY better than I imagined.)

I also like... all of these cards.

Rework's narrow, but I think it does a lot to help slow-advance super server decks make HQ less vulnerable.

Surge is bonkers, particularly with Grimoire and Medium. With all the pieces in place, Medium hits harder than Maker's Eye on the first run.

HQ Interface is expensive, but I love that it doesn't cost MU. I think it's an instant staple in Gabe, but Nerve Agent is usually a better splash if you want a way to pressure HQ. That's just my gut feeling, and some decks want HQ pressure and can't spare an MU... This definitely sees play. (It also suggests an R&D Interface at some point.)

It gets agendas out of HQ. You want it in decks that slow-advance giant agendas behind giant piles of ice. Your central servers are very vulnerable, because you're playing a very long game. You're going to have to protect R&D properly no matter what, but Rework and Executive Retreat might be enough to get away with leaving HQ more lightly protected.

Also loving Surge's flavor text. This has to be a reference to that green Mountain Dew clone from the '90s, right?

Yeah, I figured that our Jack Attack equivalent would be Psi-type as well. But I'm not complaining.
