I’ve played against it ~6 times in the past few weeks with varying corp builds and haven’t been hit by a profitable siphon in any of those matchups (against several different players, including steven wooley). There’s a difference between knowing it’s coming, and building with siphon in mind. I was also one of the original proponents of the deck, and in most of wooley’s videos/articles he gives me shout-outs for making it. I’m saying it’s dead because it’s dead.
If you want to play that style, bring the anarch cards into andy, make a ghetto rig and spend your influence on dlr/parasite/knight/deja vu, you have more ways to get on top, and fao makes sticking siphon much easier in that kind of deck (you’re also andy with 3 siphon 3 planned assault, that’s consistency)
