Just like Carmen, this is the decoder that will be usually splashed in other faction, when you don't want to spend the influence on Engolo (which is still the best breaker in the game).
Of note, if you have the , you can put Mayfly on the board, along with your other breaker, to get a boost to this breaker (the same trick would work with Echelon). Letting you break most Code Gate without boosting the strenght. It is not exactly necessary, since it remain a very efficient breaker.
At 2 influences, it is the best decoder for the influence cost. In shaper, it remain very good, unless you think you'll be facing glacier corp, in which case Gordian Blade might let you save more to break multiple Code Gate.
The art is simply amazing, and the quote fit perfectly. Kudos to the devs!
I think that this card is maybe too op. Uprising has revived stealth, but Penrose gets "only" +3 str for 1 stealth cred. Unity can do this late game with normal creds, not even counting the aforementioned Mayfly/Aumakua combo— m.p
