Black Balance Testing (Frozenstorm v zhavier)


#326

It’s an early game late game thing. The 1/1 means a lot more at start but becomes kinda meh in late game while the look at hand means a lot more after the second reshuffle.


#327

You’re totally right, a peek at what’s coming is very valuable late-game.

I got the nightmare start this game, let’s see if the deck changes have made it any less horrific!

So that cantrip + 1/1 for 1g LS change is a bigger help early than I thought! Still though, I don’t see how it will keep the nightmare start at bay for Vandy, but let’s play it out!

My Thoughts

Greedy to go for Quince here, I can create so much card advantage with Shadow Blade + Dark Pact, and Graveyard + Imp I’m drawing into… This should be one of those “threat of meta wins the game” starts



#330

I just keep having ideas for upgrades to the blue starter while doing this… Its kinda fun imagining all the silly or OP possibilities… Latest idea: Building Inspector makes buildings cost 1 less for the controller in addition to its current ability, or perhaps instead of.

I usually block 2 on principle, but shadow blade is so much more damaging than soul stone. Graveyard means he probably expects to be playing spells and keeping up hand size with the units he has, maybe 1 more. Imp would be annoying. But BCs are of course good and bad.

He got the tower and a decent board out, not ideal but again, workable. I’ll try to turtle and break his tech 1, getting the Crow and Haunt together means he’ll have a tough time gaurding the tower next turn. I’ll probably get free speech’d, so I think a Plague Lab would help me break in a little better, too.

#342

Well, I cast injunction but my weakened air hammer is insufficient to the current task, namely killing either hero.

I’ll concede here. GG. Post another turn 1, but I’m thinking the lawful search change is maybe not quite the right effect to help close the gap substantially.


#343

On second though let’s play this part out with injunction.

Plague lab cost 1 extra using that float btw.

Injunction is a good stall tactic, I may lose a demon here. I could try to reshuffle draw 1 for a blocker, but I’d rather ensure I’m drawing into my tech 2 options next turn to force another injunction. Next turn we can spend on Orpal if need be.
