This is pretty fun. Here are some trigger scenarios that are pretty great.

Scenario 1: Place this on R&D and, if the cards in hand requirement is met, swap the top card with a Snare! from hand. This seems more likely to happen vs Faust decks, getting that flatline before their Obelus draw triggers.

Scenario 2: Placed on the most taxing server, trigger to swap a big ICE from HQ to be the next highest ICE in R&D. Then Mutate next turn.

Scenario 3: Placed on R&D, swap an otherwise stolen agenda for an operation or ICE from HQ.

Scenario 4: Vice versa for HQ.

As for getting those triggers... I'm sure Chairman Hiro can figure out a way to tax the runner and do net damage during a run ;)
