An Exile deck with synergies based on Paige Piper. Paige is mostly used to reliably get your programs in the heap, but she also helps eliminate Magnum Opus and Astrolabe dead draws.
Once set up it plays like Blitz Kate. It is slightly slower, but it can threaten particular glacier remotes better, such as Bootcamp Glacier or anything involving Tollbooth.
Weak against NEH due to a couple turns of set up time. Mopus is historically great for trashing assets, but I could also see it being weak if corp assets reach a critical mass.
I just started testing, so I’m not sure of the deck’s competitive ceiling, but I think this is definitely the most comprehensive archetype for Exile in a while.
Basic card choices:
1x Legwork: to add some level of HQ multi. This could be clot if the NEH match up proves to be particularly bad.
1x Levy: just in case you run out of recursion.
1x Stimhack: generally strong in shaper, good for heavy glacier environment, works with clone chip.
1x Utopia Shard: kill protection, further HQ multi.
Breakers: Blitz Kate breakers with Femme as a general means of getting in. Weakness against multiple high strength sentries stacked.
Kati vs Daily Casts: these two compete for the slot. Kati is more money by volume, and works with Paige, but I think she competes with Opus for clicks. The deck can take a few turns to get going, so I settled on Casts instead.
Let me know if you have any questions!

Just a quick note on strategy for those looking to try the deck. You should hardly ever install programs from hand. Mostly seek to overdraw and dump programs, then use recursion to trigger Exile. That might not be obvious for those unfamiliar with Exile’s play style. Good luck!
