As I look at this card, I'm thinking it finds natural synergy with some of the things people are doing with Kit and Haley right now.
Sadyojata makes sense in a Haley/Panchatantra-based rig that's cycling Sharpshooter and/or Deus X but doesn't have the influence to include Gingerbread (perhaps because it's burning influence on other cards like Spy Camera, Tech Trader, and Clone Chip). Using Sady against low-strength ice with 2+ subtypes (ex. Rototurret, Brainstorm, Yagura, Resistor, Cobra, Shadow) lets you save your trashable breakers for serious obstacles. This makes it possible for you to make more exploratory runs against face-down cards, and to run through a deep glacier without hemorrhaging all of your trashable cards on a single run. Again Gingerbread is better for this (except for ice with exactly 2 strength), but for a shaper who can't spare the influence for Gingerbread, Sady is your second-best friend.
Sady has a friend in Kit's ID ability, which is not true of Gingerbread. She also combos well with Tinkering and Paintbrush, which likewise are tools that offer more benefit to Kit than to most other runners.
The devas in general are friendly towards a lot of 2nd- and 3rd-tier shaper tricks. Exile can trigger his card draw with a Test Run of a deva from the heap, then swap it with another from the grip. Spending credits during a run to swap devas sounds like something Nasir would like to do. The Professor can include one each of Aghora and Vamadeva at no influence cost. Installing a deva onto London Library and then swapping it with another one allows you to cheat out any of the devas for 2 credits each. None of these tricks are particularly powerful, but they're all the kind of fun stuff that people associate with shaper and will fit well into a casual deck.
