Attack: 3, 3, Zane?, Drill Sergeant (+2-3 runes)

So… I can’t really kill the Boulder, and I don’t need to Origin Story Rook right now, so let’s get all set up.

Tech in 2nd Overeager Cadet and 2nd Drill Sergeant (Sergeants are just as good as Boot Camp at killing Illusions, and even against Macciatus, they still grow to out-size whatever Bomber will be doing. And I can just draw into whatever I tech in next turn.

I’m probably dead…


#13

You’re unlikely to be dead. Macciatus + Spectral Flagbearer is going to heavily neutralize any tricky offense I could try, and all your guys are bigger than mine.

We’ll have to see how the numbers line up, but at first glance I’m not even going to be able to clear your patrol zone…

[details=Player 2, turn 6 - includes actual thoughts!]Temporal Research
Overeager Cadet
Nullcraft
Drill Sergeant
Deck: Origin Story
I can also tech 1 or 2 cards, and be assured of drawing them, if that ends up helping
Discard: Overeager Cadet

Defense: 7, 3, 1f, 4, 4 // ROOK, 3, 1, 1f; 5, 5, [20] = 18 in patrol, up to 9 worth breaking behind, not counting fliers
Attack: 3, 4, 3, 3, 5 = 18 (okay, so I can theoretically clear the patrol zone)
Zane: +2 for 2; +1 more for 3; +2-3 more for 2
Enables:
Sharks: +6 for 5
Chaos Mirror (swapping Rook): +3 for 2 (or +2 / -2 on someone else for 2)
Prynn: for 5 gold, can cast Origin Story on Rook. And maybe Undo on Macciatus.
Onimaru: for 4 gold, can generate +4 atk from Elite Training

The Prynn line:
Tech 1 Undo
10 gold (10)
Prynn (8)
Overeager Cadet, Nullcraft (6); DS to 3 runes (50/50 shot to get 2nd Overeager back for a 4th rune)
Origin Story Rook (3)
Drill Sergeant kills Boulder
Stewardess trades with Flagbearer
Undo Macciatus (0)
Remove rune to kill Reteller
Taxman kills Bird, steals scavenger gold (1)
Remove rune to kill Hound (0)
Neo Plexus and Fading Argo team up to break Tech II
Nullcraft kills Prospector, picks up a rune for protection
Patrol with Overeager Cadet and Prynn against a board of “Bird token, Tech I”

The Onimaru line:
Tech Elite Training
10 gold (10)
Drill Sergeant (7)
Overeager Cadet, Nullcraft, (5), Overeager Cadet (DS at 4 and 3 runes)
Onimaru (3)
Elite Training on 2 things (1)
Drill Sergeant kills Boulder
Taxman kills Reteller & Bird, steals gold (2)
Stewardess trades with Flagbearer
Neo Plexus trades with Hound
Fading Argo is the only attacker… this isn’t very goo

The Zane line:
Tech Chaos Mirror
10 gold (10)
Drill Sergeant (7)
Overeager + Nullcraft + Overeager (5) [first DS at 5 runes, 2nd at 3]
Zane (3)
Kill Boulder with “stuff” but not DS
Taxman kills Bird (4)
Chaos Mirror Nullcraft to 4 ATK (2)
Nullcraft kills Macciatus
Use 3 runes to kill 3 illusions (1)
DS attacks base for 9
Move 5 runes to guy
Guy attacks base for 8

Or this:
Tech Chaos Mirror
10 gold (10)
Nullcraft (8), trade with Bird
Drill Sergeant (5), Overeager, Overeager, Nullcraft (3) - first DS at 6 runes, 2nd at 3
Taxman and Stewardess kill Boulder (steal gold) (4)
Zane (2)
Chaos Mirror to make Nullcraft 4 atk (0)
Nullcraft kills Macciatus
Use 2 runes to kill 2 Illusions
Trade Neo Plexus for Hound
Attack base for 11 damage with DS
Move 7 runes to Fading Argo, kill base. (wowow Chaos Mirror so good!)

[/details]
Having done the analysis, I see that Bomber was correct after all:

Tech 1 card
10 gold (10)
Nullcraft, draw last card in deck (8) [DS at 2 runes]
Nullcraft trades with Bird, you get 1 gold
Drill Sergeant (5), reshuffle and draw 1 of {Chaos Mirror, Overeager Cadet, Nullcraft} [Sergeants at 3 and 0 runes]
Overeager Cadet, draw 2nd of {} [4 and 1 rune]
Overeager Cadet & Nullcraft (3), draw last card in deck [6 and 3 runes]
Stewardess hits Boulder for 3
Taxman finishes off Boulder, I steal your scavenger gold (4)
Zane (2)
Chaos Mirror, swapping attack between Spectral Hound and Nullcraft (0)
Nullcraft kills Macciatus
Use 2 runes to kill Flagbearer and Reteller - you draw a card and both return to your hand
Neo Plexus kills Spectral Hound
Move rune to active Drill Sergeant, who attacks your base for 11 (3 + 1 + 7 runes)
Move 7 runes to Fading Argo, who attacks your base for 10.

GG!
