I can only really see this being an answer to letting Midseasons go through.

Eh...not really. Midseasons + Psychographics or Midseasons + Scorch + Scorch....point being you really don't want the corp to pull off the second part of whatever combo they are using Midseasons to enable.


This card isn't _useless_, but it is way too situational to waste deck slots on pretty much ever IMO. Crash Space, also in faction, helps shake tags (though granted, 1 at a time) and protects from meat damage and its still a 'maybe' card, and Lawyer Up shakes two tags and draws three cards and is still not often played, for instance.  And this card is strictly worse that both of those in most scenarios and only better after a  Midseasons assuming the runner is still alive or the corps didn't Psycho a Beale for the game. Too specialized basically.

Now that Hard-Hitting News is going rampant, this could be a nice tech card to include in your deck.

Maybe. I think I would prefer Lawyer Up, generally. It costs 2 fewer $, is 1 influence vs 2, and in games where the corp is not tagging and the runner is not self-tagging it can still be played for +1 card (over just clicking to draw twice) which isn't economical but can help recover from damage taken in a run in a pinch. To clear 4 tags from HHN, Lawyer Up for 2 clicks $2 and click to clear tag twice for 2 clicks and $4 netting 2 cards in the balance still gets the job done. In faction combining with Crash Space for meat damage protection does decent things as well.


Alternatively, I'd also consider extra link to help prevent getting traced in the first place which offers a more active defense against a variety of trace based evils. 


But, yeah, if your main objective is to wipe a bunch of tags all in one go, this is the most direct / specialized option.
