Snare in hand

Recommended Posts

If the runner accesses Snare from HQ and doesn't trash it, does it go back to the hand after triggering the effects?

That, or the game comes to a halt as you ask yourself why you are playing with an idiot.

Yes

But WHY the runner should opt to not trash Snare??? It costs ZERO to trash it….

Old NR included Data Sifters (IIRC) - an operation that tagged the runner if he trashed a node asset

AFAIK it has not yet been replicated, but…

 

There are certainly resons to leave it in R&D.

In the future maybe.

But now? With the currently released set of cards?

HQ - I cannot think of an advantage to leaving it in HQ at the moment - actually, I can, but it is circumstantial/depends on psychology.

Corp has five cards in hand, draws an agenda - you have left him options involving traps - he may prefer to trash the agenda to trashing the trap; perhaps he has a server that s breakable but expensive so with the option of a trap he will install that.  IF you can read/predict your opponent it may be a viable option to leave the trap.

R&D - it clogs the Corp's draw - it is not ICE/money/agenda - any of which the corp could be looking for in different circumstances.

Uhmmm….

If you leave Snare on top of R&D, next turn you'll find it in HQ. And about HQ you said "I cannot think of an advantage to leaving it in HQ at the moment - actually, I can, but it is circumstantial/depends on psychology".

Do not trash Snare is - by now - too circumstantial to risk again a face_to_face with it….

IMHO.

You assume there is a reason to run HQ if corp is digging.

If corp is digging - so the snare forms a block thereto - then the agenda is probably not in HQ

The only time I would think about eating the snare and not trashing it is when

1. The corp is low on credits,

2. Has alot of un rezed ice.

3. I have a full hand of usless cards. (doubles of installed cards)

4. I can also run his Hand cheaply.

With all this going on, I would make him spend 4 credits this turn, run his hand next turn (after refilling mine) get lucky and pull snare! costing him 4 more credits,  then run the large agend holding server and snag an agenda….

 

So all this will almost never ever happen in a match….

Like this will NEVER HAPPEN.

But if it does we will be ready…lol

Hey did I say this will never happen in a match?
