This card is basically like Medium, which we saw for a little while in the Salvaged Memories meta. Conduit is great and really belong to shapers, as shown with the 4 influences cost. It is so good, in fact, that it is still worth it to use it in other factions.

The other current near equivalent program would be Stargate. But Conduit let you see more and more card, the more you run. Because it is vulnerable to purges, it combo very well with Contaminate, since the latter cost only 1 influence.

Shaper will leverage the card with efficient runs on R&D. But Conduit really shine with anarch. Using tools like Cookbook, Knobkierie, Contaminate, Virus Breeding Ground and even Friday Chip, you can build up a massive amount of virus tokens on Conduit, letting you access an equally massive amount of cards in R&D.

At only , unlike the of Stargate, it is easy to put in a deck. Being a virus, it can even be fitted on Knobkierie or MemStrips (again, Anarch have it better).

I really enjoyed the short poem, it is very nice. The art is sharp and easy to understand on the table. Well balanced card. Gread design.
