here is a fix that I think most people will like and will solve the
problem of fragging a runner for less then his deployment cost.

make Cement Shoes only target an opponents runner. there for you can
not target your own cheap runner to SoC another players high cost

just a thought that i had to keep this combo the kick in the pants
that it can be.

puckstpr aka Noah

This one is still bothering me, It has the potential of being a great card
(Cement Shoes) this is how I see the situation going down...

I play my Cement shoes on Noahs', Loki, cuz he's been treatin my trolls badly,
then Noah, hits me with the old State of Confusion, and targets my, Stomper
(cuz he just kicks ass), I lose out on my nuyen, and he Redirects my hired
killers to do away with Stomper, instead of Loki, as I had planned. No fuss
no muss this is how it should work...look at it this way, if I only had
out...say....Static, and I had targeted, Skwaaaaaark, I still get some one
bumped off it just cost me more and of course I lose my only runner ...but
these are the chances one takes when you run the shadows...but try this as
well, say I have out Longhorn, and pull this same Loki tactic (cuz I don't
want him creating havok with my only troll runner) when the SoC is played I
still lose my runner, and because I'm a good sport I take my medicine and wait
to play some other card, later...maybe Even Steven when he goes fishing for
gear or runners...and hope there are no more SoCs' in his hand...these are the
breaks kids, playground rules in effect

I am, and always will be OneWay919
