Android Netrunner Comprehensive Unofficial Rules Wiki

Whenever the Runner trashes a card for brain damage, he or she removes all copies of that card from the game (installed, in the heap, stack, or grip). The Runner shuffles his or her stack.

As part of the Chronos Protocol Tour in 2014, players voted between this or Chronos Protocol, Jinteki to be included in a future release. The Jinteki version won, so this card will never be officially printed or tournament legal.
