Ice tutor ! Levy University, you should have been so great if you weren’t so crappy !
What’s the problems with you ?
- you cost 3 to rez, which could be acceptable if for the rest,
- you ask for one more and to apply your effect,
- you send the fruit of your fishing in the HQ, that ask for one more (and s, probably) to fully apply,
- you can’t defend yourself : 1 as trash cost, so we must protect you to enhance our protection.
Had we been keen on using you as a one shot, we should consider you as a double event with a 4 credits cost. That’s pretty expensive for something that let us with an installation to do. Well, done as an asset, at least you force the runner to spend and few not to let you on the table (if they ever care).
But still. We as Corp need to put on average a dozen and half of ices in our deck and furthermore must play a lot of them. We’re not like Runners, who just can go with 3 different icebreakers on their rig, so prefers to put a few of them in their deck along with tutors.
So why bother to give you a slot ? Let’s just put a piece of ice instead.
