Reviews

Welcome to Reviewing the Little Boot Icon: Identity Crisis!, an unfortunately named spin-off to an unfortunately named series of reviews for Reboot-modified cards. Today's review: Andromeda: Dispossessed Ristie, the best ID.

  • Changes: 0<1. Now you can't face-check quite as well, and are more vulnerable to Scorched Earth.

  • Pros: Drawing a starting hand (and mulligan) of 9 cards is a great effect in any game. In Netrunner, a literal card game, this is even more nuts. You are very likely to get the cards you need, also known as consistency.

  • Cons: After the game begins, your ID is blank. We are never getting Rebirth, so just suck it up and deal with it.

  • Playstyle: There are 2 main deck-types out of Andy, Andy-sucker, and Stealth Andy. Andysucker uses Desperado and the fixed-strength breakers with Datasucker and Security Testing to make lots of runs for lots of cash. Stealth Andy uses Switchblade, Silencer and other stealth cards to break ice for pennies and make lots of successful runs.

10/10 Tier 0 ID, up there with Valencia Estevez: The Angel of Cayambe, Rielle "Kit" Peddler: Transhuman, and Laramy Fisk: Savvy Investor. Just kidding about Fisk.
