The Archivist tracks all the clans and its members, and official dealings clans have with the various corps. Half law clerk and half historian, he wields a tremendous amount of power doing a job no one else wants, but none can do without.

Since some of the most common agendas in the game fall into these categories, it's a safe bet this will fire at least once during a game. The link the card adds guarantees the trace is at least even for all runners, and in a deck with extra link it puts the corp at a disadvantage. The high influence cost is probably going to keep it in Anarch decks only (maybe a Sunny deck could include 1 copy?), but still lots of potential.

Also I find it funny that it triggers off of Clone Retirement and Veterans Program.
