Eater does not skip the access phase of a run, it causes the Runner to access zero cards. If the Runner uses Eater during a run on Archives, all the facedown cards are still flipped faceup, but the Runner accesses none of them.


I have a question regarding the new anarch AI icebreaker named Eater.

Let's say a runner uses Eater to break a subroutine during a run on archives. If the runner successfully accesses archives (and opts not to use a replacement affect), what happens to the cards in archives during step 4.5 of the run?

1. You do not flip any face-down cards in archives and access no cards.

Or 2. You flip all the cards in archives face-up, but access no cards.


Tybb-sly You flip all cards in Archives faceup, but you do not access any cards. This is because Eater does not replace the entire access, it only prevents you from accessing more than 0 cards.
