I feel like 3x this in a deck could be a really good general purpose defence against any type of 'flatline the runner' decks, as it is potent defense against net, meat, or brain damage. Also, if you do fill up a 7 or 9 card hand, you have a whole lot of extra tactical flexibility. The downside of course is you have to draw spend a whole lot of clicks to draw cards initially, and again after any damage is taken.
Yeah, I was eagerly awaiting a card that had this effect. Definitely going to be something I try to put to use.

Makes Wyldside more effective and easier to stomache the click loss since you are not throwing so much away every turn...

Why wouldn't the corp just trash this card?
@Tjglaser: If they tag the runner I'm sure they will ... so runner better not get tagged!
Finally a way to deal with brain damage!

Finally a way to deal with brain damage!

is there something like this for bad publicity.. as in a way to kind of counter it?

not yet. I'm looking forward for the card to 'scrub' bad publicity. It'll almost certainly be accompanied by cards that give you BP based on gray ops or black ops cards in the archive.
This card is wonderful with Shapers (Diesel/Quality Time) and fantastic with Andromeda (and why not splash Diesel or Quality Time in for good measure?).
If a Runner has a Public Sympthy installed and takes a tag and the Corp trashes the resource during the Corp turn, does the Runner have to discard down to five cards immediately or only at the end of his next turn during the discard phase?
discard phase next turn

Pu it in my andromeda deck - bad against flatline, 2x SE still kills you, but i have many cards that tend to wait for good moment, and I splashed Quality time - in this setup this card is quite usefull. And this hand of 7-9 cards stacked with Emergency shutdowns, Account siphons and vamps just waiting for good moment to wreck HQ :P

Sweeps Week suddenly makes this seem less great...
