"Breathe, girl. Breathe." Mike flickered into focus as she brushed Akiko's tears away. "What did you see?"
"I..." Akiko hesitated. "Everything."

  • ANCUR UFAQ 24 [Michael Boggs]

    If the Runner accesses the same card twice (e.g. running R&D and a Shiro fires), do they gain 1 or 2?

    The Runner gains 2. Psych Mike counts the number of times the Runner accesses a card from R&D, not specific cards accessed from R&D.

    Does the Runner gain credits from Psych Mike for accessing upgrades installed in the root of R&D?

    No. Upgrades are accessed from the root of a central server, not from the central server itself.

Reviews

I was very unimpressed by this card upon first reading it, until I realized it combos with Maker's Eye and Deep Data Mining. This means that not only will you see the top 3 or (hopefully) 5 cards of R&D and snatch some agendas (hopefully), you will make 3 or (hopefully) 5 credits in the process. This means Mike easily pays for herself after one multi-access run on R&D. Doesn't work with Equivocation though, as you reveal the corp card and either make the corp draw it or let it stay on top.

It is kinda sad that Mike is unique, but she would probably be a bit OP if she wasn't. Still, if your deck is centered around hammering R&D hard and often, this card is a solid include which will make you a fair amount of money for almost no entree fee. Run multiples, as you want to see her early. Hopefully.
