ArthurWynne vs vengefulpickle
Aggrogarg takes the first bout!
@vengefulpickle changes things up - for most of the game things seem to go well, but Setsuki is never defeated until her last hit point is gone. One crucial combat win and dump gets the vortex rolling - and then it’s hiah-hiah-hiah until I’m staring down the barrel of a last-turn 50/50 - and get it wrong.
Again I win the early game, again Setsuki hangs in there and brings it back.
The curse is broken - or at least I guess right on the last turn this time.
A different matchup requires a different approach - I block-block-block and power up as needed to always have TPoS, lean hard on 7* and hardly play any attacks, and it works, as @vengefulpickle seems to expect me to be more aggressive, as I usually am.
It doesn’t work for long though. @vengefulpickle has my number.
I don’t feel any more comfortable with any of the other Oni counters though, and I’m not about to let him counterpick me in the last round. I’m too reluctant to throw and play into a bunch of dodges, but I’m saved by drawing both my jokers early, keeping me flush with cards and Oni low, so I can kill him with a thousand cuts in the late game.
Final result: 4-3 to ArthurWynne
Very good games @vengefulpickle, every single round was tense and close!
