This is the Shaper deck I played in round 1 and round 5 of FightingWalloon's S3C (Stimhack 3-Core) teaching tournament. Decks are built from 3 copies of the Revised Core Set, and players can change IDs/decks throughout the tournament. I wanted to play each faction over the course of the tournament.
Shaper struck me as the strongest faction in the core set due to great economny (Magnum Opus), efficient tutoring (Test Run), and R&D pressure (Indexing and The Maker's Eye). This deck did not disappoint.
