So I play tested my Apex deck last night with casual play. Won once and lost once, the loss was fairly close though. I’m trying out Cache/Scheherazade, as I can at least eat/chop the cache afterwards. With one Wasteland and Chopbot, I can draw for my apocs fairly quickly. Installing EH on Schezzy is kind of funny too.
It’s important to have my hand setup for the turn after I apoc. I’m really looking for a clonechip and another chopbot to get my engine going back again. Apex is definitely tricky.

As for what I’m going to change, I’m not sure. I feel dropping the E3 would be a bad idea, if the opponent is playing HB you can still play ‘normally’ by E3’ing bioroids. I think dropping the Levy too, unlike Shaper/Maxx you really don’t go through your deck fast enough to warrant it. Deja Vu feels too expensive as well, but it’s needed when you can’t draw your second apoc.
