TL;DR: A draw card for setup decks. Especially potent with setup.

Credit > Draw. Therefore all following analysis assumes that only draw option is chosen:

  1. With a normal 4 click turn, there is 3 clicks to install things. Which equates to 3 cards, Diesel gives 3 cards upfront and does not need any further combination.
  2. Hyperdriver turn, 6 clicks to install things. 6 cards, quite good.
  3. Simulchip, Self-modifying Code, Street Peddler, Gachapon can all trigger this for an explosive turn.

In conclusion, it's good for setup decks where they install a lot. It's almost a good as a 4th Diesel there, and can be more. Also, just like other draw events like Diesel, this card is at odds with the Professional Contacts engine.
