Netrunner News – SanSan Cycle – Chrome City – A few new cards!

Hello everyone.

Here we are to look at a few new cards from the third pack in the SanSan cycle, let’s see if they look any good.

brain-cage
Okay so I just want to being by saying: I truly never think taking brain damage is worth it, not for any kind of effect (well unless you win the game but this wont win the game on the spot). Even tho you lose 1card in hand size, you gain 3. So basicly… you gain 2 when it’s all said and done. I’m in general not a big fan of a card that gives you a bigger handsize, it doesn’t give you an advantage in it’s own right and sure it can build up for other kinds of combos, but I’m not really sure there is any kind of combo in the game that needs this card that’s worth it. We even have a resource card in the game at the moment that gives us the same effect (but is not being played anywhere important as far as I know) and that is Public Sympathy. A nay for me.

If we just ignore the damage part of this card which I think you actually should… more or less. This is a card that makes plenty of the standard Ice Breakers alot better (Yog.0 for example that can’t naturally be buffed). But that also of course depends on the ice your facing and if you’re often one strength of from being able to interact with the ice. Getting that one extra strength to brake through somewhat stronger ice can be a game changer at times. This card even saves you money the longer you have it on the field and the bigger need you have to buff your cards.

You want to put this card in your deck just to make a few other cards better. No, not wasting card space, resources or time on that.

I’ve put all these cards up at the same time and the in same text cause I just love to see them as a unit. Each card in itself has a pretty good effect and they mix and match incredibly well to create a strong game plan.

The new identity may not look like much, but in a way it automaticly puts 1 brain damage on the runner at the beinning of the game. Which is awesome and also very strong against Andromeda if she can’t get plenty of cards out on the first turn (yea the chances of that happening is low… but still).

Then we have the Agenda that ALSO acts like a brain damage, working great in combination with the identity and the new card Ryon Knight which just seems… incredibly good. Mixing it with some ice that forces your opponents to spend clicks is now great. As a Runner you will have to think about what will happen if Ryon is at a certain location. Thinking about if they have to stop after spending a few clicks and at the same time if you’ve put in resources to make a run… you will want to complete it. Right?

In general I just love the gameplan of lowering your opponents hand with cards that are not in themself horrible. I can definatly see myself trying out a HB deck once this pack is out.

Until next time Nurglings, take care.
Cya soon!

Nurgleprobe’s TOP 10 – Netrunner artwork

So the only thing I really had to think about before doing this list was: Should I include promo art in this list. Sure promos are a part of the game but it’s not something that you will always see when getting expansions or playing with your buddies. So… should it be here? Well after looking through some of the promo cards I realized that they’re not always ”better” and they are a part of the Netrunner game so I kept them in there.

I first thought that I would give small motivation to each art but I just truly like them and just putting them in order should be enough for this list. Also, the Order & Chaos set and SanSan cycle are not included in the list.

So… here we go!
