Most significant Corp card for one very simple reason: the Runner must always--ALWAYS--be worried about it. Even if you don't include Scorched Earth in a deck, you can leverage its mere presence in the environment to great advantage.

Plus, it can straight up end games out of nowhere.

They only need to worry if they can be tagged without having time to deal with it. So it either means the Runner gets a tag during a run on their last click, or the Corp gives it to them during their turn with cards such as SEA Source or Priority Bounty.
I personally wouldn't really expect it in HB or Jinteki, as they don't combine with it well enough. Plus, Jinteki have enough discard effects anyway.
Finally, the influence of 4 makes it a tough decision to use in decks.
The smart runner is always worried about this card. This is why you use Plascrete Carapace or other armor/meat damage prevention.
The face in the artwork is Elizabeth Mills. She has urban renewal plans for the runner's apartment complex...
