Uh, no. Just no. Totally not worth the $5.

 

EDIT: one of my favorite Netrunner posters, willingdone, makes some compelling points about this card in his set review (  )

 

Basically, it's a good alternative to NAPD in butchershop style decks. Because of the extra cost of NAPD a runner can opt to not score the agenda, which is anti-synergistic with the Midseasons -> Scorched line of play. This card on the other hand does not have such an extra cost so the runner must score it. And the +5 credits helps pay for midseasons in the following turn. 

 

Secondarily, it might situationally be good in Harpsichord if the runner has already stolen an agenda previously in the same turn; the corp gets +$5 and the runner gets nothing.

 

So, I'm revising my initial "binder card" opinion to "viable in very specific decks". 

Explode-A-Palooza over Special Offer swings the corp-runner credit balance by 9 credits while opening up the runner to Midseasons (10 creds with Spark). I am starting to see some parallels between recent NBN cards that want the runner to run and steal and some classic Jinteki playstyles. I think you can make an NBN deck now in which every agenda punishes the runner or rewards the corp when a steal occurs.
