So, it seems we finally get a bunch of sysops that don't look like date rapists.
Loving everything I see here, the trash cost, the rez cost, trace strength and the influence.

This should work with ChiloCityGrid. Making a server with her and Ash really uncomfortable especially if you are also running Net police.
Does she work with Chilo? Chilo says "during the run"; when does the run technically end?
The run ends after accessing cards, but the run is considered successful before accessing. So yes, Bernice Mai works with Chilo.

The card I compare her to is Snare!. I really like her, and often use both cards in the same deck.
Snare! works even when not installed, randomly accessed from hand or deck.
Bernice doesn’t cost 4 credits to use. This is huge.
Bernice doesn’t have to be trashed, if you install her in a big server to troll the runner that it’s a 3-difficult agenda, and they don’t run, you can just install another card there next turn without wasting your card. You just make it more expensive to run there.
Both drain 3CE from the runner (Bernice three credits to trash, Snare three cards), but cards are usually better than credits and Snare!s three cards aren’t optional, whereas a runner can go Tag Me and make Bernice Mai meaningless.

So Snare certainly have a lot of advantages, but the four credits less is huge, as is being an upgrade. If I have an ice shortage I sometimes stick her on a central just to tax the runner a bit. But she really thrives in a remote.
I really like this card.
