Everything about this card suggests to me that it was printed as an inside joke among the designers at Fantasy Flight; this card is anything but tyrannical. For 7 credits, you’ll receive a generous 0 subroutines. Spending 7 credits on any ice is already a huge tempo hit, but at least the big hitters like Heimdall 1.0 or Tollbooth are taxing enough to be worth their cost. Barring any supporting cards, you’ll have to invest 1 click and a credit (we’re at 9 or more credits now for those keeping track) to be at parity with Bastion; at this point though, you could just stack two Bastions for the same price.
Let’s run these cards through the acid (Corroder) test: Tyrant (with one advancement) = 3 credits to break vs. Bastion x 2 = 6 credits to break.
Back to the joke thing. It’s been a long time since I read the Bible, but didn’t the Hebrews escape Egypt?
