In a standard Noise virus deck I do not see this finding a card slot. On its own it is rather meh and lack-luster. However, combine this with fester, lamprey, account siphon, and vamp... I think you have a valid credit tax deck that REALLY swings the credit advantage in the runner's favor. The downside is digging through such a deck for all the pieces.

Unless I'm mistaken, this does not trigger off of Fester, as this gets trashed before Fester triggers. —
