Yeah, these decks are goddamn strong, but it seems like if the Runner knows the match up well enough for their deck, they can sort of sit back and let you score a few points, then complete demolish you. I went undefeated in 5 swiss rounds with a butchershop decklist this weekend (here) but in the top 8 cut I lost twice with it against really strong opponents.
Highlight of the tournament for me was an extremely close game against @kiv in the third losers bracket. I was on 6 points with Breaking News in hand, but a turn prior he went tag-me against my Gutenburg on R&D and got a solid Medium lock on me. All I could do was hope he whiffed (which he didn’t). Such a great game.
