See, if I had the right cards! But no, they are in the next hand, sigh… 50/50 vandy survives here… 8 gold means he has to have a specific set of cards


#125

Just confirmed that’s the correct order according to sharpo (everything in Shadow Blade gets resolved at once, then any triggers can happen).

I’ll scoop, I can’t do anything with that. There’s no playing against Vandy and friends :wink: GG WP! What would you like to do next?


#129

at elast twice that matchup reversal or entangling vines would have completely hosed my plans. I noticed in your matches with Bob that 4 out of 5 matches he lost, you teched those spells. You also lost with them on at least 2 matches, but still…

:slight_smile:

How about red? That will be another vicious one for black, methinks.


#130

You’re probably right that I was under-using Reversal and Vines, but idk about completely hosed. I had to respect StW and Meta, and I didn’t have much to follow up with if I had busted the patrol.

Red’s good with me, go ahead and kick it off!

We all gonna forget that time that Zhavier got a cheap plague spitter


#133

Huh, didn’t notice that


#134

Oops, and that’s not the first time I made that mistake >.<

Perhaps that would have been a big difference but idk, im not too worried about it. On with the red!

halfway decent chance vandy doesnt survive here. But that should be fine, following up with BC and Garth or BC and imp or something.

We’ll see what he had in mind for Jaina, for now I’ll take 2x Firebat and rain fire down on whatever he tries to pull out. Make him answer Jaina’s flame arrows, but not commit to her all together. Dunno if that’s wise or not, but we shall see

I think I’ll rush for gunships, as I’ll give zhav the benefit of the doubt that he teched a DG for Jaina. Breaking the tech 1 seems worth emptying my hand if the plan is gunships, so why not XD
