Inspired by Code_Marvelous, decided to create a super-fast Shaper lock using Patchwork.
AYLA's NVRAM cannot be underestimated - consider it a 41 card-deck with 4 semi-random 1 Click tutors. Sometimes I'll use them when my grip has good cards to feed Patchwork.
Cool, janky interactions first!
If you get DJ Fenris and Rebirth early / together, choose Liza (first successful run on a central, draw 2 and take a tag) and Jesminder (avoid the first tag each run) for an awesome draw engine that feeds Patchwork wonderfully (and shores up average draw).
Insight + Deep Data Mining - I'll gladly pay 2 clicks to ensure a successful DDM, also, Insight also lets you time "FTE" and Mad Dash better!
Out of the Ashes + Notoriety; being able to score these to close out games cannot be overlooked!
THE GAME PLAN
The chance of getting Patchwork in your opener / NVRAM is pretty high - otherwise, the deck has plenty of tempo cards to help you find it. Play it asap! Install Magnum Opus as soon as you can, even if you don't have access to a Dhegdheer. If you can't save the MU for DDM, just Patchwork them. You'll eventually install a Dheg for one of your breakers so you can fit 2-3.
Pitch Out of the Ashes (OotA) for Patchwork and use them to accelerate tempo (if you get JesLiza early) or enable aggression / Notoriety.
Every breaker covers a large portion of ice - many combinations work, often 2 are enough. This deck is extremely punishing against lightly iced Corps.
Feedback Filter and Misdirection are vital silver bullets - get them into play soon if you know you'll need them.
The strength of this deck is being able to rush reliably and outplay Corps regardless of their plan. Through Insight / Mad Dash / "FTE" and Notoriety, you can ensure you reach 7 points way before the Corp anticipates you doing so.
For me this list could go on for a while, but I'm considering The Shadow Net to forfeit these 1-point cards to for value Day Jobs and recycled DDMs. But there aren't many other targets I'd bother with, so it stays out for now.
I originally included a single The Turning Wheel (before Day Job), but this deck isn't always going to be able to fuel it - when it does, though...
Like I said, could go on a while - feedback is welcome - has done extremely well on jinteki.net so far.
