I’ve been running this out of CT and Kate (still not sure if the deck size+memory is better than the discount), but I think most of my points apply to the Crim version as well.

Deck built on NetrunnerDB.
A few notes. FC+Turning Wheel is quite good, especially if you make enough money to get in anywhere. After a certain point, there will be no unrezzed ICE on HQ and R&D, so after that your Turning Wheel counters just build up naturally. Out of the Ashes is a bit weird, it’s mostly discarded after overdrawing, and then used to build up TW counters and money before you want to actually get in. I did get some wins with this deck.
That said, the setup time is atrocious, even with six tutors and CC, and needing to put out programs means facechecking is next to impossible without Snitch. Since the buildup takes so long, your TW will often get blown up with some counters on it when playing against yellow decks.
The influence constraints are rough, Vamp and Clot would both be nice includes. I’m gonna keep testing, but I am very meh about the deck. You put a lot of constraints on yourself for things that you could get otherwise too.
