I like it in Shaper with Kate "Mac" McCaffrey: Digital Tinker
TLDR you can replicate and sell them to thin your deck and get an Easy Mark each turn. Actually its better than an easy mark because you dont need to click to draw. Or you can use them to prevent damage, then user shaper recursion to get the cards you want back...
Full use case-
I sell one each turn for 3 profit using kates ability to install for -1 and replicate the next one in. Alternatively i keep them and use them to counter net damage/brain damage against Jinteki: Personal Evolution and in this instance just sell the rest of my economy.
The reasons Ramujan is good for this are:-
- Its cheap to install so i can maximize Aesop profit.
- I can include up to 6 so i can reliably keep replicating them in and getting an easy mark every turn for 6 turns. All the while thinning my deck without a need to click to draw. Just a click to install (so actually 1 click more efficient than easy mark after economic engine is set up)
- They work well in Shaper because clone chip and levy ar lab access enable their damage preventing abilities. That lightspeed sharper recursion means that taking damage on your stack isn't such a risk. So i can use them as a net and brain damage counter if required
EDIT- Technical Writer has great synergy with these consumer electronics as well, frequently netting up to around 10-12 creds on a writer if installed early.
EDIT 2- This thing absolutely defangs Cerebral Overwriter #ronin and Snare! (remember to take the tag off) and makes Project Junebug much less fatal. However its use is very much enabled by Replicator and Kate "Mac" McCaffrey: Digital Tinker and having the backup plan of making it Aesop's Pawnshop and Technical Writer food if its function is unneeded in the matchup.
I look forward to seeing if anyone else fits it into other decks.
