This one started as Orange Devil's deck. Prior to that, I didn't think Shaper was any fun. It has changed into something almost entirely different and Opus-driven since then.

It still doesn't have a Toolbox, and relies on an Opus (2) / Ninja (1) / Snowball (1) / Key Master (0-1) rig, with either Rabbit Holes or Mem Chips to keep it afloat. Once afloat, the Mem Chips effectively become delayed Easy Marks via Pawning (play for 0, sell for 3). I don't think the transition from Battering Ram to Snowball is a big deal, and I think Snowball should get way more in-faction love, especially given Corroder's (just) fanfare. Perhaps the most notable omission is Sure Gamble, which is card-churn friendly and could fit in a lot of different ways. I like having Infiltration, though. The Personal Touches (in addition to helping a Ninja beat an Archer) really escalate in value with Snowballs and Key Masters. I'm blowing a hearty 6 influence on Special Orders, because I will tend to mulligan into Opus and I abhor not being able to handle early agendas. I consider turning the remaining Cyberfeeder into a Datasucker. I like annoying archives, discounts, Pawnability, etc. It disrupts the otherwise-smooth-to-achieve MU requirement of the rig, though.

Play-wise, it's a classic big-rigger, although I think it has more upside for drawing even after the true core is complete.

This deck should love Test Run once available, with either Mac or Chaos. 4 of the Special Order influence will go directly to 1x Sneakdoor Beta and 1x Femme Fatale.

And you plan to get the memory for those where?

They won't necessarily be there with the intention of permanent installation. Early game, MU shouldn't be a problem for a surprise install/pop/pop/pop. With Sneakdoor, I think the best outcome might be hitting their hand, getting them to ice up their archives, then not even installing it. With FF, it's more of a sniper bullet. It's plausible for either of them to fit in later game, with Chaos' MU and/or Mem Chips. It's also easy to Pawn dupe icebreakers then reinstall (possibly w/Modded). I do that already as a matter of practice, for income.
