CAFS 2016: Castanietzsche (Mono Blue) vs. CarpeGuitarrem (Mono Red)


#1

Hi @CarpeGuitarrem ! Good luck and have fun !

P1T1

[details=Secrets]

Discard : 5
Hand : Building Inspector, Reputable Newsman, Lawful Search, Arrest, Spectral Aven

Thoughts : [spoiler]Ok I won my precedent game against Mono-Red but I was kinda lucky in sense my opponent feared a Truth spec and went for a Jaina + Spells based gameplan. If I face Blood this time, it will be far more difficult.

Let’s continue the Brave Knight tech choice, but this time mixed with a money-saving tech choice, such as Overeager Cadet or Spectral Hound. Money saving units seem to have a good synergy with an onimaru based gameplan, as the Flagstone General is very expensive to maxband and Boot Camp is card-neutral. But 2 hp units are so weak against Red… Maybe the Tax Collector will worths the try ? Idk…[/spoiler][/details]

Thoughts

First techs are probably Calypso Vystari and Bloodlust. Until Blue gets to Macciatus, Bloodlust is a cheap, premium way to deal with Truth’s Tech I’s. Furthermore, a lot of the Blue starter is weak 1-health stuff that Bloodlust can kill. Kidnapping will eventually deal with Macciatus if Blue goes Truth, so I’m covered there. Though, Gunpoint Taxman is also going to be needed to deal with Spectral Aven.

I should probably not focus on Truth, because Red has so many natural counters to that spec.

Vystari will eventually be good to deal with some of the beefier units in Peace, as will Kidnapping.

Law is going to be a pain. I don’t have any good answers to Injunction, other than having a variety of T1 and T2 units.

Sorry for the delay, I’ve been very busy this week. :sweat_smile:

[details=Secrets]

Discard : Tax Collector, Brave Knight + 3
Hand : Porkhand Magistrate, Bluecoat Musketeer, Jail, Manufactured Truth, Traffic Director

Thoughts : Wow I’m so lucky to have Jail in hand :smile_cat:
With Bloodburn on I don’t want to spend ressources on illusions and low hp units, let’s tech Tax Collector and Brave Knight (even if Brave Knight may go to discard if finished with Bloodburn). I really don’t want to tech spells too early against Red, because summoning heroes means giving to my opponent the possibility to grab free levels for Zane. Let’s just temporize the game as much as I can !

Quick question, since I’ve never played against Blue before: do units coming out of Jail have summoning fatigue?

Discard : Injunction, Flagstone Garrison + 4
Hand : Boot Camp (stashed), Boot Camp, Reputable Newsman, Arrest

Thoughts : If he plays Blood, my better weapon is Community Service. But I don’t think I could afford a 5 gold cost card in the next turns and he already is low on card so let’s tech Injunction ! I hesitated to poke his tower this turn but let’s assume he has Crashbarrows/Sharks in hand and let’s wait a bit ![/details]

#11

dude that is impossible. Booth camp gets discarded only after its effect resolves, so u play it, rs, draw, then discard it. @EricF @zhavier plz confirm


#12

You resolve a spell, then discard the card, so Legion is correct, you will not be able to draw boot camp from itself with an empty deck.


#13

Ok will redo my turn this evening, thanks !


#14

Yeah, sorry, I mentally calculated Building Inspector when planning the turn, but forgot to adjust the cost when entering in the spreadsheet.


#15

I edited my previous turn. Also forgot tower’s damages, sorry ^_^"
Thanks for your patience ! :slight_smile:

Wasn’t Gunpoint Taxman trashed along with Jail ? @EricF
Because Jail wasn’t destroyed (as written on the card) but trashed, I don’t know if trash is one type of destroy effect or if it isn’t. I’m going to ask in the Q&A thread too.

@CarpeGuitarrem (you don’t need to write @Castanietzsche because I’m watching the thread with the forum option anyway ^_^)


#18

when jail leaves play, anything in jail goes to discard, regardless of how jail leaves play.


#19

Ok, thanks zhavier ! It wasn’t that obvious actually !

@CarpeGuitarrem you might want to redo your turn, please feel free to do it ! I’ll edit mine tonight !


#20

Yeah, I’m gonna have to go do that. I have not been on top of things at all; I should’ve just re-checked Jail. Assumed that destroying it would release units.
