I haven't actually used this card yet, so I could be wrong, but I feel that it is too powerful; especially considering the zero influence and play cost. I envision a deck that includes three of these and three "Freedom Through Equality"s to potentially turn any two-pointer into a four-pointer. Combo with a few expose cards like Infiltration and Drive By to confirm the presence of an agenda in a remote server. And/or combo with Globalsec Security Clearance or Find the Truth to get the agenda off the top of R&D; no multi-access required. If you go the latter route, you may want to have a Councilman on the table to stop an un-rezzed Jackson from ruining your Mad Dash.

Now I would hesitate to use this card versus Jinteki, especially PE, unless you've already stolen their Philotic Entanglement or you'll get game point.

Perhaps this won't work as well as I envision, but I'm definitely going to try it out once it is coded on

And SpyCam. Potentially Showing Off with all the new Corp tools for putting stuff at the bottom of R&D. There's a lot of ways to ensure, Mad Dash will work. And it's not only Mad Dash. With Freedom, Notoriety, Fan Site and Cheela a runner can include up to 12 agenda points in his deck. Either one of those cards ain't problematic (though Mad Dash could have cost at least 1 inf...), but all of them together are a bit much. You simply steal a single 2-pointer with Freedom + Dash combo, make a triple Noto turn and you're at 7, without running in more than 2 turns. —
I meant 15 aganeda points, obviously. Though, tbh, 2 Mad Dash + 2 Freedom + 3 Noto should be enough to consistently win by stealing a single agenda (or two if you happen to find a second before you pull off your Noto turn). —
Or you could use it with GFI and get the same amount of agenda points as the corp. Totally unfair. —
