My first instinct with this card was to think of it like Window; why would the cards on the bottom of the deck be any better than the ones on top?
But I realized this card does actually have a use (besides just superstition). This card is for those times when you want to make the most of a small window of time when you can get into R&D. Maybe your Parasite just ate a big piece of ICE, and you want to hit R&D hard before they re-ICE it. Maybe they spent too much scoring an agenda and forgot to leave enough money to rez their central server protection.
Especially with some muli-access, this can be a big deal. Say you have Medium with a counter or two, or especially R&D Interface. You run, see a few cards, but all of them are Operations and you don't have an Imp. If your multi-access is Medium, you could run again, but you'll only see one additional card. With R&D Interface, there's no point.
But now, with this card, there's suddenly a point again. Play this and see a whole new selection of cards. That's actually really powerful.
Will it see a lot of play? I kind-of doubt it. But I wouldn't call it useless.
