No, it's not 100% "distrust", it is just that FFG listen allready to player winning tournaments (they are testers allready), and the MWL is still like it is.
Trust should be put in Johnny / Timmy too.
Lots of more humble players have problems with other cards that doesn't seem to be approached by the MWL : for exemple Siphon, Caprice & Ash, Sandburg, False Echo, SOT, etc.
This is not a matter of NPE, it is a matter of making the game dumb or not (because any spam make the game dumb when this wins).
The current proposition limits only extreme strategies (if the prof rule is out) that what I call "omnidecks" can't compete with. It doesn't really limit spam.
Constructing a deck with archive tutors is too easy now, any noob at deckbuilding can make a working deck with an enabling gamewin card, and 6-9 recurring tool. In any faction now : how does this make the game more complicated ?
That's why IMO FFG needs to listen to deckbuilders too.
I think competitive players doesn't care about this. Their needs are covered by banning extreme strategies, so they can (copy an) omnideck, and this is it : deckbuilding is not picking a winproven list, changing a card and call it a new deck.
Deckbuilding starts with questions like "how will I win", not "how many times I'll win". If you want to spot dumb cards, exp help to tell that you will see it at this phase, not in the w/r optim phase, here you're just making a dumber deck.
The dumb deck is choosing Parasucker Sifr with Sunny + breakers & overmind, breaking everything for nothing, not replacing a card in it because it wins you a a credit or a clic.
