...And, strangely enough, this is exactly why I assume Guard can be used
as often as desired :)

Guard is self-limiting in a way Biotech isn't (with perhaps the
exception of Knuckles deflecting a lot of Shurkien shots). Seems to me
a Runner using Guard twice in a row is just a guy with a death wish.
(And, hey, it gives a little for the low-Body, high-sleaze, one-Guard
type decks.)
