This is a strat build around behind the ferns. Everything but mimic has 3atk or less
and as long as something else is out mimic can copy their stealth.

Try to get to T3 and feral strike a pair of T-Rexs


Quick review of the green starter, looks like spore shambler and rampant growth
are my illusion poppers.

Huntress for aven, nature reclaims for garrison.
Enough death-touch heros shouldn’t get out of hand
Blue will prob have a tower, but given my stealth strat that would prob happen regardless.

Glad to see Newsman, since green starter is so obvious to block with only 2-cost spells. OTOH, sucks to have both spells in my opening hand. I considered playing Bigby to stash one of them, but that messes up my cycle so I’ll stick with Oni.
What do I worker, though? I kind of like the idea of Jail against green’s big units, so I guess this will be an Inspector-less game.
Long-term, I’m thinking about Truth. Green has the building hate to deter me from Peace, and not a lot of targeting to pop illusions. We’ll see, though.

Newsman is annoying. Part of the appeal of Cali is throwing a rune on her
and having it be the same as bumping a band. I could try to adjust by bringing
sporeshambler out, but Hero+merfolk has more longeterm potential and Tiny-B
should be able to clear all this.

I’m pretty worried about Cala stealth-killing Oni. One solution would be building a tower, but that’s a serious gold investment at this point: with a worker and tech 1, it leaves me with just enough for a Traffic Director.
I could patrol Oni in SQL. But even at midband ascendingPrime can kill him with midband Cala + Ironbark, which is definitely a favorable trade.
What if I’m willing to soak the early hero kill? He’ll go down on cards to do it, and I could play, what, Lawful Search and Spectral Aven? Or Arrest, if I’m lucky?
Forget it. I’m P2 mono-blue, I’m supposed to be playing defensively! Tower it is.
Can’t say I like him having Merfolk, letting him get ahead economically, but I’ll try to make up for it with efficient tech 1 units.

Got Manufactured Truth after the reshuffle, which means I could punish a Centaur or Basilisk which is likely to drop next. Let’s see how it goes.

I love this trick w/ Tiny-B where it blocks Oni, but is unattackable by traffic-cop.
Also feels good to be able to cast spells again (all my spells, starters+ferns+ferocity are 2)

Ouch, both Huntress and Basilisk on board.
I could MTruth Director to trade with Basilisk, and midband Oni to kill Huntress without giving Cala levels. Then Spectral Hound and mangled up Oni patrol. They die next turn to Ironbark and maxband Cala, but at least she doesn’t heal? ascendingPrime might have a combat spell to help wth that.
I could midband Oni without killing Huntress to deny the technician draw, but I might regret that if he’s teched Ferocity.
How about going straight to tech 2, then? I’ve a low chance of actually drawing a tech 2 card, even with the technician draw, but there are all kinds of stalling tricks I could try next. If nothing else, ascendingPrime might get a headache trying to figure out which tech to break…


#7

dude, i see oni but not the gold spent for him :frowning2:


#8

He’s been around since turn 1! Though likely not for much longer…


#9

sorry, completely missed it. i blame eyes of the chancellor for making him invisible :stuck_out_tongue:


#10

Ya Oni was hiding in the weeds two turns ago, although Dreamfire is right that about him popping his head out last turn just far enough to get it lopped off.

Good trick w/ manufactured truth to thread the needle on Tiny-B.
Bumped up Feral strike since Cali is now max. Keeping Reclaims since
Cencorship can be nasty. Ferns is a hard counter to guardian, and enough deathtouch to make juggernaut reasonable

Edit: accounting for the hippy Huntress resisting Arrest…

@ascendingPrime Cool to see someone choosing Balance tech 2. I’m curious to see where you’re going with this.

Thoughts

I’m excited to see Balance tech 2! Does that mean ascendingPrime is going for T-Rexes, or should I be concerned about Mimics and Basilisks first? Feral Strike can make this an ugly board, and fast. I guess the only way to know for sure is to Lawful Search…
But before that, I think teching Judgment Day is a pretty safe bet. Liberty Gryphon is a whole lot more optimistic, but I think that’s my only real win condition here.

Hmmph. Ferocity would be scary next turn, Mimic+Centaur could be terrifying the turn afterwards. But by then, I’ll hopefully be drawing into Judgment day. So the main thing I want to avoid, actually, is giving (more…) free levels to his heroes. Which means no Bigby yet, just another Mirror.
Trying to patrol around both Ferocity and sparkshot is annyoing. Actually, it’s too much. I’ll go down a card and Arrest Huntress. If he wants to use Ferocity to trade Ironbark for Hound, he can be my guest. More likely to see Mimic and a second hero.


#12

@Dreamfire :: Huntres has resist - 1 b/c of Cali’s midband.

Also, that is really interesting that Balance was less expected. I’m new the PbF and used to always play IRL against a single opponent and Balance was his fav green spec (I never really had a strong preference). I’ve been laying out my thinking in the throughout in the thoughts section, so if you want the play by play of where my head is at please feel free to look after the game.


#13

Oops, you’re right of course. I’ll just refrain from making the extra mirror and patrol Quince in technician instead. Should I also redo my draw?


#14

My rule of thumb is always “keep as much as possible of the original during the edit”. Since skipping the second mirror doesn’t impact your draw any I say keep it (not sure if that last card is the killer one you want in hand?).


#15

hmmm, actually balance is p good along with growth. Ime the less successfull green spec is feral.
If u want, after the game i’ll share the best green spec techs i’ve witnessed.


#16

@ascendingPrime Done editing, kept the original draw.

As for spec choices, I’m not especially experienced here either, but it seems that the go-to green spec is Growth.


#17

@Legion :: Always interested in shop-talk. I know Feral is the green-spec I
always thought had the coolest theme (and super-strong T1), but I always had
a hard time getting T2 to work. Same with anarchy T2 actually, always
things are just a little off.

EDIT - showing wrong turn number

That resist really saved my but. The difference between 2 mirrors (no sparkshot) w/ Quince
behind, and getting a board wipe is HUGE.

Dealing with the hound was painful, and I realize now it didn’t really have to be.
I kept waiting on spore shambler, but I could have tgt more easily w/ mid-band Arg.
Would have let Cali through to smash a tech building and really start a snow-ball.
At least this way I have Midori out though just in case I need to bust out Reclaims.

X - Feral Strike + Nature Reclaims
X - Behind the Ferns + Wandering Mimic


So the plan had been to build my T3 this turn, but it was just a little bit too scary
to have a pair of hastey griffons wreck all my stuff. Didn’t plan on the extra tech though
going to have to work that out.

Spore shambler is totally the boss when dealing w/ illusions. Also kind of embaressing
that Dream declared “Truth” and I started planning on countering Law --whoops.

Next turn Midori can max and clear tower. With ferocity I might be able to string along my
1-HPers for another turn.


#20

Not much point in marking my T3 on board if you’re just going to break it, is there? :stuck_out_tongue: It’s fixed in the current turn.
I also noticed that in my last post, my deck was missing 2 cards (should be 18 in total after 4 turns of teching, but only 16 appeared in the post). It was the last 2 cards I’d teched, so I just went ahead and added them to the deck, didn’t redraw or anything. Hopefully this turn won’t have any more errors in it, rule-wise or otherwise…

Thoughts

I actually think that last turn went pretty well for me, though it sucks to draw a Gryphon off technician when I can’t use it. Still, I think there’s a better chance of my tech 3 surviving this time. And though ascendingPrime has a big hand, he’s behind on workers and tech.
I patrolled in a way that won’t let ascendingPrime utilize sparkshot, unless he gives up on popping my Hound. And with Forest’s Favor freshly in his discard, even a flying Midori shouldn’t be able to break tech 3 or kill Oni. Anyway, fingers crossed!
