Played a tournament today as PU, expecting to do pretty well against a mix of Smoke or Anarchs on Obelus or SIFR, maybe some Andy without much recursion.
Instead, my first pairing was Apex. He installed double-Reaver, Heartbeat, Brain Cage. Damage prevention, draw, and handsize for days, and he Levy’d after an excruciating 20 minutes or so. Still, his only multi-access was Turning Wheel, so he’d only stolen a Fetal and a House of Knives in all that time. He poked HQ 3-4 times seeing a Pop-Up Window each time.
Not a lot of money in my PU deck, so I was scraping by most of the game. Finally crawl my way up to 12 credits and he runs R&D with Faust and MK-Ultra installed. I rezzed Chiyashi and he just conceded.
