Wesley's STCCG card of the day #383

Hi everyone.. Here's the next one.. (yeah, this part's getting shorter, but hey - it's just intro. ;) As always, my comments are in []s..

Sorry - one more note: I'm going camping this weekend, so the medal round of IE4 will start on Monday. There - you've been warned. :)

Hi, folks,

it's really funny to get a good submission from a totally unknown STCCG player every now and then:

Internet Expansion IV, 4th place, by Jenny Sieman


Event, rare
Play at one planet location. All androids are disabled until brought to that location.
"Data once took over the U.S.S. Enterprise and answered Dr. Soong's call when Dr. Soong activated a signal to Data. Unfortunately, Lore answered the call as well."
This one is a very powerful deck hoser. You all know these decks all too reliant on lots of Androids to provide Integrity for Q Dilemmas or CIVILIANs for Colonies. And this is the ultimate anti-android card. You play it on a planet (stock a Q's Planet for this purpose if you want to play space missions) as far away as possible from your opponent's androids. And then you watch your opponent squirm as he tries to get his deck back to work without too much success (at least if you can defend the Event with Q2s or Rishon).

And unfortunately that's pretty much all I have to say. The card is very close to being broken as it can shut down an entire deck. And even if it only takes out two or three personnel unless your opponent takes a six turn side trip to reactivate his androids, it is too powerful.

[For the most part, I agree with Wes. This card is very powerful. Of course, there's a simple solution - don't use androids. Think about it - before QC, there was Data, and... Data. These days, Finger puzzles and the such are almost mandatory. Here's a simple way to blow through a bunch of them easily. Just remember to bring another solution to Security Precautions.]

Well, most raters liked it. I think it's an example of a card too strong. We'd need a very effective counter-card for this but then we'd just wind up having both players assigning fixed slots in their tents (or playing completely without androids). Sorry, Jenny, a bit too powerful :-(
