I’ll pack it in, I got an Ebbflow off a Geiger dc draw 1 but I need a hero in front of it to have any chance, and even then it’s not great… Probably needed immortals instead huh??? GG WP! I thought I had that one but you had some key discards and after the Now! TD combo draw I didn’t draw another good combo

Your turn for p1!


#207

The ebbflow would have been obliterated unless you also managed to kill zarra, as he is untargetable.

T1 later.


#208

Oh obliterate 4 lol, I was thinking it was 2 for some reason. Definitely needed Immortal haha


#209

I am curious what you meant by a weird game?


#210

I’m not sure exactly, It felt kind of defensive and slow, not like most games I play. Maybe that’s just purple and I’ve been playing too much black and red lol, but I was expecting to lay hard on the gas and drive in victory on Present T2, and instead my whole cycle just felt very limp each turn.


#211

I can see how it might be defensive, I certainly was playing a lot of defense. :slight_smile: Purple’s bounce effects and forecast are difficult for black to counter. I was surprised you built the tower rather than get more aggressive.

For some reason I thought I was still waiting for your t1, sorry for the delay.

As for the tower, check my hand that turn. I didn’t have a very aggro option :confused:

GL HF! (only change from my TL;DR is I turned my brain on and realized Geiger in SQL is safe)

I sadly have no clue whatsoever what I am doing… I guess Stewardess makes sense against skeletons, so grab two of those and try to set up Present T2 Again? Or Maybe Future would be better? ¯_(ツ)_/¯

Decent chance he’s going Abom or pulls a Ghoul to snipe the nullcraft, and has money left over to StW. So I want Plexus down here as well, for insurance. We’ll see what I draw!
