I really like this card and can see NBN being my Corp faction of choice. It isn't too powerful because the Corp can't score an Agenda until the beginning of its turn. I want to try using it to protect an advancable Asset that hurts the Runner, like Ghost Branch.
I can see this splashing nicely into a Weyland deck, as they can advance plenty of cards, and buff them up for screwing the Runner over even more.
The fact it only costs 1 to rez it as well is amazing!
Can you also pay multiple times to advance more than once? I'd say no, because it is not noted in the usual 'cost: effect' pattern.
No, as the restriction on paying the credit to advance is the when the Runner encounters it. Nothing implies it can be done multiple times, and apart from something like Cell Portal, they will encounter it once and then move on, so there is only that one time they encounter it.
I think this card works really well in Jinteki. Put it in front of an agenda, than when the enemy runs, just advance the agenda further. Now they have to gamble, since you could have a +1 strength project junebug they didnt prepare for. I dont say it is super effective (maybe with the new sensei, since it would get end the run), but it really fits the Jinteki bluffing playstyle.

Can you really score an agenda with this? I mean, teh FAQ says that only during the corp's turns you can score one (Section 4 page 14). During a run only paid abilities can be triggered but it says nothing about scoring agendas...just curious

You can not score an agenda with this ice during the runner's turn. You have to wait your turn to score it then. I had the same doubt long time ago.

As kamahl23 said, you can't score an Agenda in the runner's turn. However, you can place an advancement token on it with this ice, mid-run. The runner may jack out in fear of an ambush. Or he will proceed the run and you have to stop him before he reaches the Agenda.
