A card for Jemison Astronautics: Sacrifice. Audacity. Success.. It's great at removing the bad publicity from the 2/1 card Jemison decks love to start off a trade chain with: Hostile Takeover.
You'd think it would be great for other things as well given Weyland's appetite for bad publicity, but once rotation hits that list will be rather small. Take a look at an overview of corp cards interacting with bad publicity. Outside of the core set (Posted Bounty, Hostile Takeover) and the spin cycle there aren't many cards that deal bad publicity and most of them aren't in Weyland:
- Checkpoint (Order and Chaos) is a 4 + bad pub 7 strength code gate with a trace 5 that deals 3 meat damage. If you have the ability to remove the bad pub it's pretty taxing.
- Reality Threedee (Data and Destiny) is an NBN card that gives you 1 per turn, 2 if the runner is tagged in exchange for 1 bad pub at rez.
- Hellion Beta Test (Flashpoint cycle, Escalation) is a HB operation that gives you bad pub if the trace fails.
- Bulwark (Flashpoint cycle, Intervention) is a 10 + bad pub ice with a "trash a program" and 2 times "corp gains 2, end the run" and a bonus of getting 2 if encountered while the runner has an AI installed. Even without the bad pub it's expensive to rez though.
Of these only Checkpoint strikes me as a good fit for Jemison decks, with 4 it's easy enough to rez and it's pretty taxing, even if the runner fires the trace a trace 5 will generally require a few credits and as Weyland you may well be rich enough to raise that to a trace 8 or so to make the runner pay a good amount for passing.
This all doesn't mean Sacrifice is worthless. Not at all. The ability to remove the downside of Hostile Takeover is as useful in Jemison decks as the ability to shuffle cards from archives into R&D is in, well, any deck. It's an operation so it's easy to play Consulting Visit.
One thing to note is that I think it's not allowed to play Sacrifice if you cannot remove bad publicity since the effect doesn't change the game state. Not 100% sure though.
Why would you want to play Sacrifice without bad pub to remove? Well if the runner has trashed your Quarantine System or you simply don't have it installed yet it's a good way to trigger Jemison's ability.
Overall this is a good card for Jemison. I doubt it'll see much use outside it though.
