This review only cosiders the Startup format.

This card by itself does not overwhelm. As others suggested, put it on a remote server, that does not get run every turn for maximum profit. But then you could use a Palisade which might be better.

But this card shines with combos. If you can use it's early stopping power to score a Cyberdex Sandbox and put a Mavirus in it's root, then you do have a pretty solid card and you can use it on centrals as well. Actually, once you have Mavirus in Archives, that gets triggered whenever Archives are run, then a Sandstone on Archives is a well working tax collector.
