Whenever an installed Corp card is trashed, place 1 virus counter on Gravedigger.

Once your sniffer finds the protocols the server uses to trash its own data, you can spoof those same protocols. Its quite the show. -Ji Noise Reilly

My gut tells me this is an average card. Getting virus counters on this isn't easy and spending them costs a click. I still want to try building a deck around this because it seems fun and if you can get virus counters on it, the corp can't block you trashing cards.

Knifed, Spooned, Forked + Eater may be the main motor to trash installed cards. Others like Imp need distant server or upgrades to target.

This is actually a really good card. I use this in a Darwin only noise suite. My aim is to mill to archives then big run, I use incubator, hivemind and progenitor as my main way of doing this, however if I get setup with gravedigger early as my deck is built to generate virus tokens I can dump a lot of cards for a 1 run win. If they lock out archives I have successfully milled out a number of corps. It allws me to switch approach. Its a good supporting card, and in the right deck can allow you to react. U have had all my parasites removed from Archives before but grave digger for me the win via mill ( I run noise btw)

Since Gravedigger only works when trashing an installed card, it's not clear to me how it works with a Noise mill deck, which would seem to have zero synergy. How are you using this for a one-run win? It doesn't work at all when milling. Care to elaborate?

My friend played Noise with Gravediggers. It went like that: Have Grimoire installed, then install 2 Gravediggers (2 cards milled) then use them (2 more cards milled). Get rid of them (by selling them to Aesops), then you can DejaVu and repeat.

"Whenever an installed Corp card is trashed, [...]"

 

EDIT: Nevermind. I misunderstood what you described, Drago13. That's a perfectly legitimate strategy.
