Now that I’ve tested different Shaper archetypes post-C&C, I’m sharing my updated list, as is often requested. This deck is extremely hard to shut down, and since the meta currently centers around Andy the Anarch, most corps are ill-prepared to deal with the sabotage this deck incurs.
I’m going to keep this thread updated with the Shaper deck I’m currently using.
Chaos Theory: Wunderkind (Cyber Exodus) Total Cards: 40 Event (20) Account Siphon (Core) x2 ■ ■ ■ ■ | ■ ■ ■ ■ Diesel (Core) x3 Escher (Creation and Control) x1 Indexing (Future Proof) x3 Quality Time (Humanity's Shadow) x3 Sure Gamble (Core) x3 The Maker's Eye (Core) x2 Modded (Core) x3 Hardware (5) Clone Chip (Creation and Control) x2 Plascrete Carapace (What Lies Ahead) x3 Program (11) Battering Ram (Core) x2 Gordian Blade (Core) x2 Ninja (Core) x1 ■ ■ Self-Modifying Code (Creation and Control) x3 Crescentus (A Study in Static) x2 ■ | ■ Imp (Core) x1 ■ ■ ■ Resource (4) Kati Jones (Humanity's Shadow) x2 Same Old Thing (Creation and Control) x2
Honestly, the deck list speaks for itself. SMC, Plascrete, and Feedback Filter allow me to run early and fear nothing. Account Siphon, Crescentus, and Paricia shut down the corp’s economy and bolster my position.
This deck necessitates extremely quick guerrilla warfare. Even criminals must be wary of net damage, or accumulating datasucker tokens. Hold on to the seat of your pants; you’re in for a hell of a ride.
