Though this might be a fair solution, the shadows aren't always fair and
all that amending this card does is add another slot to the FAQ. Which,
IMHO is already too full. Oh well, I'm just begging you, please don't
prevent this combo. It's not a game stopper, it's just a really nasty
combo. There are a lot easier and cheaper ways to trash a runner
(fragging is just one more step).

yes, paying 3 nuyen to frag a runner is extremely cheap, but you need both
of those cards in your hand and you need to turn a mafia runner, plus it's
not like it's a combo that can be used whever you want. Are there any
cards that can retrieve a special from the trash? Or even to search your
deck for a special? I didn't look through my cards, but I can't think of
any off hand.

more nuyen.
