Chaos Theory deck accelerator. I want to like it, but the cost might end up being prohibitive for the limited utility.
Fishing for Personal touches does seem like a good thing to me, though.
Repeatable tutoring??

Card seems awesome. New deck archetypes will be born.

Bestest fave card in the pack, easy.

I don't think this card is great atm but it might become rly strong in the future if more usefull hardware is coming
Replicator: Gets this to work

Akamatsu Mem Chip: Cheep and you would like to see in multiples
Cortez Chip: Really cheep and you would like to see in multiples
Cyberfeeder: Really great to have in multiples
Dyson Mem Chip: Costly to have multiples, but useful
Plascrete Carapace: Costly to have multiples, but could ruin whole deck types to get out
The Personal Touch : Really great to see in multiples.

Rest of hardware: No advantage for having multiple copies/ not allowed to have multiple copies.

How much Influence would the above cost?
Shaper: 9
Criminal: 12
Anarch: 15

This seems like a good starting point for a deck. The shaper has some influence left to play with but Andromida with her larger starting hand could see this combo very easy. Anarchs benefit greatly from the cyber feeders and personal touch and the increased memory, so while they are tapped out of influence it still could work.

No? How about HQ Interface? How about just trimming the excess consoles from your deck?

How about using Inside Man + Aesops's? Then when you've trimmed all the hardware from your deck sell the Inside Man's and Replicators.
Economic engine, baby.

I was looking at HQ Interface and relized that I completely missed that it is "one additional" and not "two" allowing multiple to stack together. Yeah I'm throwing those in the deck too.

Not going to be able to afford Aesop's influence cost though ;) (massive hint as to what faction I'm playing this out of)
There is not a single hardware card that you want to put more than one copy of in your deck that Replicator doesn't benefit. Even your console or other cards you can't PLAY more than one of, having Replicator out gives you a free draw to clear now-defunct copies out of your deck. It's not going to fit every deck design, but there's little to not like about this card.

I Agree, I was mostly looking for hardware that had some specific benefit for having multiple copies of them in play. Being able to filter out unneeded cards for free is still a nice benefit.
Replicator is so fun to play, but when I based a deck around it, the deck was so insanely slow. I need to work on that.

This card combos really well with Inside Man, an otherwise extremely weak card. With one Inside Man and a Replicator out, you can play a Cyberfeeder for free every turn, drawing the one you'll play the following turn. You can do the same with Personal Touch.

When you play the first replicator, you draw your second into your hand. If you have an Inside Man out, you can then play that second for free with a click. Now, whenever you play a piece of hardware, you draw BOTH other copies of it out of your deck if you want. If you have Aesop's Pawnshop out, dropping the tutored cards even if you don't need them for free turns Inside Man's recurring credits into real credits.

It's so fun to play. It's just so much slower than I'd like. Now if only there were a Runner card like Shipment from Mirrormorph that would allow me to play cards faster...
Now you can do it in Kate with R&D Interface and HQ interface!
R&D Kate is incredible for the Interfaces. Splash in a Medium and an Indexing to test the waters (against Jinteki) and you can really make the Corp worried. So worried they will spend so much time watching R&D you'll find yourself with lots of free runs on hand and remotes.
does Replicator activate itself the first time you install a copy?
