If the Runner starts their turn with Out of the Ashes in their heap and Emptied Mind installed, does the Runner still gain if during the run from Out of the Ashes they discard all the cards in grip to using Faust?
Yes, Emptied Mind checks the number of cards in grip when its ability resolves. If other simultaneous effects are triggered before Emptied Mind, then the check will wait until those effects are fully resolved.
No, the Runner’s regular access step has been replaced with the ability of Information Sifting. The card added to HQ is not in the chosen pile, and as Leela must access all cards in the chosen pile, she does not have any accesses left over to access the card that was returned to HQ.
No. When the Runner begins accessing cards from HQ or R&D, the total number of cards to be accessed is capped, regardless of modifiers or changes to the makeup of the central server. For example, if the Runner begins to access a pile of 2 cards from Information Sifting, she will only access 2 cards regardless of modifiers like HQ interface. Additionally, Information Sifting confines those 2 accesses to cards in the chosen pile.
The Runner accesses Disposable HQ while accessing cards in a pile created by Information Sifting. Can the Corp put any number of cards from the piles on the bottom of R&D?
Yes. The Corp can freely choose cards from either, both, or neither pile, as the cards are still in HQ.
Can the Runner use more than one copy of Out of the Ashes when their turn begins?
Yes, each Out of the Ashes triggers separately from each other. Each copy is finished resolving only after the run has ended, at which time the Runner can resolve another copy (or any other “when your turn begins” abilities).
Is using the “When your turn begins” ability on Out of the Ashes considered to be playing the event?
The Runner uses Out of the Ashes to make a run. During that run, she trashes other copies of Out of the Ashes using Faust. When the run is complete, can she trigger one of the newly trashed copies of Out of the Ashes?
No. The only copies of Out of the Ashes that are eligible to trigger their “when your turn begins” abilities are the ones that were in the runner’s heap when the trigger condition was met.
No. Clicks are tracked by running total, and they can only be spent to take an action during step 1.4 (“Take actions”). A click gained before the action phase cannot be spent on an action until the action phase, but it can be lost or spent through card effects, such as Wyldside or Bioroid ice during a run initiated by a card effect. A click gained after the action phase does not return the runner to the action phase, and that click will no longer be available once the turn ends.
I have Guru Davinder and Net Shield installed and suffer 1 net damage. Can I choose to use Net Shield, or am I forced to use Guru Davinder and decide to pay 4 or trash him because his ability is constant versus Net Shield's paid ability? What if it was 1 meat damage and I had Guru Davinder and Muresh Bodysuit? These are both constant, so what happens then?
Yes, Guru Davinder prevents all net or meat damage, leaving nothing left for you to use the paid ability on. All simultaneous triggers on your cards are resolved in the order of your choosing.
Each time the Runner accesses cards from HQ or R&D for the remainder of the run.
After using The Turning Wheel, can the Runner choose to access a card from R&D when they access a card from HQ and vice versa?
No. The Turning Wheel’s extra accesses are from whichever server the Runner accesses.
Can the Runner wait to see the first card they will access from R&D before deciding to use The Turning Wheel to access another card?
No. The Turning Wheel’s ability is activated during paid ability windows and thus cannot be used once accessing has begun.
The Runner activates The Turning Wheel’s ability during an on-access encounter with Archangel. If she continues to access more cards during the run, does she get an additional access from The Turning Wheel?
No. The number of cards the Runner accesses during a run on HQ or R&D is determined at the beginning of the access step; it cannot be increased after that point.
If the Runner plays Legwork while Dedicated Neural Net is scored, and loses the Psi game, does the Corp choose the cards the Runner will access one at a time, or does the Corp choose a set of cards and the Runner accesses them in any order?
The Corp chooses a set of cards for the runner to access of size equal to the number of cards the Runner will access from HQ, then the Runner accesses them one at a time in the order of the Runner’s choosing.
Dedicated Neural Net has no effect on Information Sifting runs. The Corp will create 2 piles, the Runner will choose one of the piles, then the Runner will access all cards in the pile in the order of her choosing.
When resolving the trace on Waiver, by how much does the Corp’s trace strength need to exceed the Runner’s link strength in order to trash cards with cost X, such as Angel Arena and Bribery?
The Corp’s trace strength only needs to exceed the Runner’s link strength by 1 to be considered successful and trash cards with cost X. A printed cost of X is considered to be 0 when referenced outside of paying that cost to play/install the card.
Consulting Visit cannot find an operation that cannot be played. If and only if the only remaining operations in R&D cannot be played, the search fails and the Corp simply shuffles R&D. This also applies to operations with effects that do not have the potential to change the game state, like Psychographics while the Runner has 0 tags.
