In my experience, a shaper with Clot that sits back and just runs your remote every time you put something in it is the worst thing to see when playing this deck. If they manage to keep a lot of their recursion (and, if they have Parasite, kill a couple Ravens), you’re generally screwed. Even if they take the News Teams, if they have no tags, a bunch of money, and control over your remote, there is no actual way to score without Cyberdex, which, if they’re being careful and just running wherever you install non-ICE cards, is pretty flimsy (though I’m not saying you can’t find a way to eke out a victory).
The cute Film Critic + New Angeles “combo” is also pretty gross against the deck, even if the “combo” isn’t actually the important part. When half your ICE is much less taxing, News Team becomes a drain of $2 (most of the time), and QPMs don’t pull their weight, it becomes an uphill, though still winnable climb.
I remember game where there was literally one agenda left that had not been scored or stolen (it was either Food or Astro - I can’t remember), and I had no way to win in the face of Clone Chip -> Clot since I had no way left to recur the two Cyberdexes in Archives. It was a great game, but this deck is definitely susceptible to being locked out. Much more so than any other fast advance strategy I’ve seen.
But hey, you’re in good shape if they never manage to steal a QPM. It means you have a shot.
