This ice is a really nice early turtle buster. It ends the run and it's cheap enough to rez early, meaning you can protect HQ or R&D for a few turns. The look on the runner's face when I blew up his 3 strength turtle was priceless. The fact that it's not a bioroid also means runners can't just click through, like they would for a Viktor or Ichi. It's a perfect replacement for Rototurret as well, which is pretty much redundant after this in HB. 3 influence means we won't see it everywhere, which is nice for HB players like me.
