There’s 5 pieces of ICE you can’t facecheck without taking a huge tempo hit (Katanas + Walls of Thorns), 2 more are unpleasant to run into (Datapikes), plus Shadow is a royal pain to break without Mimic access. You can’t really keep it down with Siphoning, because of all the money that happens automatically. No way are you going to be able to trash the assets reasonably fast - the combination of increased price and random net damage slows you down too much, because of your absenting draw power.
The one game out of 4 that I managed to win, I got lucky on a last-ditch access, and even that ended at 7-6 with her ready to score the winning agenda I couldn’t get to. I tried to win through milling in one of the games, but that was rather meh - the combination of low agenda density, recursion and the inability to check Archives in small chunks is quite punishing. I did actually manage to trash all three Jacksons in one of our games, but getting all Jacksons and all Interns before they can be used to great effect is… problematic, to say the least.
I will admit I did eat random RnD snares a couple of times (so that might be counted as bad luck), but still… I shudder how this would play out against a PE deck loaded with EMPs and the like.
p.s. the Cyberdex Trials actually never made a difference, even though they’re a meta call for matchups like this (more specifically, to clear Imps, as they are normally a pain for the deck) - I was usually practically defeated quite a bit before that point.
