I played this Apocalypse Steve at the Chicago tournament. Because of the bidding I only got to play him once all day, but I won the game and I was pretty proud of how the deck performed overall.

Hilariously enough, Data Dealer was actually huge on the day. I assumed News Team would be big, but I also played a few fun games against PE with Kusanagi and getting 9 credits off of those felt great. One thing that makes the deck really interesting is planning out the apocalypse turn; knowing that your disposable breakers can bypass along with a combination of Spear Phishing and Inside Job make landing the Apocalypse easy, but the Steve trigger can also help you recur important cards like Siphon, Inside Job, Sure Gamble, Maker’s Eye etc.
All in all I had a blast playing it and found it surprisingly effective.
