Now normally I have the debate on if he has deteraite or not, such that vandy gets the easy kill + level up off Fargo, but with it costing 1g, he can’t do that and Imp which might help me a lot, but its hard to say. Mox is better though, forcing the 2g to deal damage to my tech 1

So far, defensive, which is good. Looking to get sickness on that mox sooner than later, and I am not all that worried about tech 1 and 2, I’m thinking the meta plan is probably the best bet.

Hoping for a lucky draw off dark pact, and I don’t know what his techs were, origin story maybe.

Fargo was quite thoroughly dead to Orpal already…


#15

I’m not sure how I missed that… will redo.
EDIT: looking at it again, I also missed the discard before the tech draw, (rewinds spreadsheet back further)

Pretty sure you’ve got this in the bag, but just in case.

Hardened mox has a total of 2 -1 runes and nullcraft died from a -1 rune due to orpal maxband. So one more card in your discard before the reshuffle. But my turn will come out shortly regardless
