This is, on the face of it, a bad card.

Over the course of it's use it will net you back 18 - in order to get these, you need to draw it, install it, it 6 times and clear 3 tags - that's a total of 11 and 6 - meaning that the net return of this card is 1 , or for comparison, worse than Armitage Codebusting which nets 3 or Liberated which nets 4.

So this card needs support - there are only a few ways to clear tags clicklessly, making this card worthwhile, Citadel Sanctuary, so you need to be all in on that particular package of cards (Power Tap, running boosting cards) or you could run a Qianju PT Adjusted Chronotype combo. All of it needs support cards, but if we have the support in place, then it gives a crushing economic advantage over other click to gain econ cards in the game.

Ignoring the costs of Citadel Sanctuary or whatever combo you are using (we could if we wanted to build in some sort of accrual on the basis of how many other tagging cards the deck is running to break down the costs of the support cards amongst them - but that is probably going too far.) So, if we ignore the support card costs, and assume we get nothing back from Power Taps - and assume the corp never pays into the Citadel Sanctuary trace - and our runner has at least 1 - then this nets back 10 which makes it a very good card.

Combined with something like Thunder Art Gallerythis package could actually net you a click free discounted install in your turn, and could be worked into something more worthwhile.

There is of course the possibility of using this to build tags for a Counter Surveillance deck, but given High-Profile Target is a card, that's currently a risky strategy.
