Should have asked what people's Stimhack names were .
At any rate: I finished in the top 12, so, so close to dat playmat. My two sparring partners got top-8. A good day.
I brought Iain, just to be "that guy", and a Making News deck that aims to adapt to the situation: PsychoBeale with Scorch backup. NBN can FA without even trying thanks to Astro, too.
Iain only got rolled once, and when my back was to the wall, he didn't let me down, which was a bit of a surprise. EVEN AGAINST YOU, GUY I KEYHOLED 11 TIMES BEFORE WINNING .
When the going got tough, it was NBN that faltered, failing to draw any of my outs.
Andy / Kate dominated top 16 runner side. Interestingly, I didn't see much Andy at all until the top-16 . She's still elite. Corpwise, NBN / HB were the factions of the top of the top, it seemed like. TWIY / MN about evenly split, one "Scorched Imaging" CI.
I was heavily teched to destroy Weyland and CI, but saw HBETF and NBN all day instead. Iain's an odd duck: you have to embrace early failure and believe in the comeback .
