They have different names, art and abilities, but none of that matters. Yagi-Uda is basically a replacement/reskin of Braintrust, and will serve the role as Jinteki's blank 3/2 agenda you can play three of, in addition to the one Philotic.
And that is fine. 3/2's have always been great no matter what their text was, because of their easiness to score vs 5/3's while still keeping the agenda density of your deck low. In that regard Yagi-Uda is perfectly serviceable.
The ability isn't even that bad. Swapping cards during a run is potentially powerful with the right card in hand and can lead to great mindgames. It is just not enough to make you want to plan around overadvancing it. If you're gonna score 4/2's, Jinteki already has the best one in the game. So save your clicks.
In short, already sees play and will continue to do so on account of its stats. Not terribly exciting otherwise.
I wonder what should be the ruling between Inazuma and Yagi-Uda.— Yeux

What can be swapped FROM hq? Cards protecting hq? Cards in hand? Upgrades installed in HQ? All of the above?— kando
Upgrades are installed in the root of HQ, they are not in HQ itself.— RandomAshe
