My thoughts

I’m winless against Rook so far with this deck, let’s see how it goes this time. Getting 3 attack (potentially 4 with Garth midband) on the table will help, as will having Deteriorate in my T2 hand.

My thoughts

Floating 2 gold is a bit odd. Not sure what he’s up to. Maybe saving to put a Forest’s Favor on Rook? Regardless, I don’t think he has a way to kill Garth next turn so I feel ok about whatever is coming. Teching a Nether Drain just in case though.

My thoughts

Ok, if he floated 2 gold last turn instead of building a Tech I, he must not have teched any Tech I units in his first cycle. But he didn’t play any spells, so he probably bottomdecked them. Bird’s Nest seems like the obvious thing, so I’ll build a Tower here preemptively.

This would have been a great turn to play Skeletal Archery, but his Tower makes that useless so I’ll worker it over the Imp. I want to go down to 2 cards so I don’t reshuffle and can get an extra tech in, so I’ll Deteriorate the Wisp and get the Graveyard down to prepare for Crashbarrow shenanigans. It seems like he is happy to race to Tech II, and normally he’d have the advantage as P2 in that scenario, but Garth maxband + bringing out hasty guys should swing that in my favor.

I seriously contemplated going for Growth instead. Might of Leaf and Claw is tempting, but who knows if my army of 1/1s will continue to survive and I don’t think I’ll have the resources to generate more of them.

My thoughts

Yep, there’s the Bird’s Nest. I don’t think I can build Tech II and prevent him from sniping Garth if he wants to. Squad Lead Bone Collector would tank his BC and a bird/panda. Other bird kills a skeleton. Midband Rook ignores the other patroller and kills Garth, and then probably maxbands. Alternatively, birds kill the skeletons, then Midband Rook ignores Bone Collector and kills Garth.

That’s ok though because I’ll be drawing 4 of 9 cards (or 5 if he kills Tech skeleton) with 3 Blood Tech IIs. That’s a 90-95% chance of drawing at least 1, and a 72-82% chance of getting at least 1 Crashbarrow. And whatever I get I should be able to play twice because of Graveyard. I feel ok about that.

So I’ll assume Garth dies and get the 2nd Crashbarrow and a Glider teched in. If Garth somehow survives, I’ll have the option to maxband in the other Glider or a one of the other blood tech 2s.

Suiciding the Haunt into the Tower because it opens up the possibility of a Glider one-shot. Thought about Rook or Panda, but he’s got a high chance of midbanding Rook anyway, and either of them will die to Tower if they attack anything but a building (and I don’t think they can reach a building).

My thoughts

Interesting, was not expecting maxband Arg over Rook. Either he really wanted the extra patrollers, or he has Stampede shenanigans planned. Regardless I feel a bit better without the threat of maxband Rook or his accursed birds. Blooming Ancient + Lich’s Bargain is probably the threat he is going for.

Don’t love skipping a worker here, but it gives me the gold to Deteriorate the Bone Collector so it’s worth it. I am regretting attacking with the Haunt though, since it is clogging up my Graveyard. Either way, I’ll be able to double Crashbarrow him next turn, which should hopefully give me the oomph to take out a tech building.

Teching Dinosize because Dinosizing Shoddy Gliders is fun fun fun. Also Kidnapping as Blooming Ancient / Rhinoceros insurance.

My thoughts

The Crashbarrow onslaught continues. I wipe his board but I’m not building up a bigger advantage. And because of that silly Haunt, my Graveyard overflows on me, which will slow down my cycling a lot. Depending on my draws, next turn I can Dinosize a Glider or maxband Garth to resurrect a Crashbarrow (+ LB if I can get some cheap levels from Nether Drain or a hero kill).


#14

Overpower only works against a patroller, so as your turn was set up, crashbarrow #2 can only deal damage to one of my things.

Let me know how you’d like to change it. If you’re going to do anything besides leave the turn as is (without killing the tower), please redraw your new hand.


#15

Oops, you’re right. Your tower will live… for now.
