Then update the official FAQ immediately? Why is there not a Day One solution for cases like these not available using some combination of remarkably accessible internet technology for a community of gamers who tend to be very very clued in to this sort if thing? The outcome is that people play the game “wrong” for weeks. If the answer is “No,” make it happen.
If I was a tournament judge with nothing official to go on, staring at Standoff for the first time, I’d take the common sense interpretation of the card, which is a) based on Weyland thematically trashing their own things for profit, b) cases where trashing your opponent’s cards is an option is almost always handled with more precision or self-evidence (“trash an installed piece of hardware,” the corp’s deck cannot contain hardware), c) the Apex precedent, d) an effect that smells too strong for a zero-point agenda.
If I ruled based on common sense, I’d be more confused rather than less upon, and probably would have felt bad for my ruling on the day once I read the UFAQ.
Anyway, I feel I’ve made my point; I do appreciate clarification of “the way it normally works,” even if to me it seems like the definition of insanity.
