If ever you need to tag the runner, this is the card for you. Costing the runner 8 if they do not want the tag is usually a hard choice for the runner. One tag is enough to do a lot of damage : The All-Seeing I, Self-Growth Program, Retribution are all cards that can do a lot of damage on a single tag.
For NBN: Reality Plus, it is even better, since you get additional value from the tag.
At 2 influence, it is easy to splash this in any faction that want to make use of tags. Usually, it will be Weyland, with tag punishment such as High-Profile Target and BOOM!. But other corp could make use of it for Orbital Superiority. At the very least, a tag is still a way to trash the runner most important ressource.
In my opinion, it is a well balanced card, with a cost of 4 to give the choice of paying 8 or having a tag.
Nice art, great lore in the quote, superb card.
