It’s funny, I have no idea how to play a mirror with this deck. Mox strats are out against Stewardess, I don’t feel like Peace Tech 2 is right as he will win a race to that, so I think I’ll be likely leaning Anarchy Tech 2? I think I’ll definitely want Stewardess first tech, probably some sharks or chaos mirror in the first couple techs, and liberal use of Zane to make favorable trades? I guess we’ll find out!

Deliberated a LOT about how to approach this first tech, as I think it has a tremendous impact on how I do in this match. I was hovering on 2x Stewardess a lot, as I REALLY want to bounce that Plasmo. But, I think with a General’s hammer, I can potentially blow out the opposing tech 1 and take an inside track teching. Ideally, I would have drawn Hammer t3, Stewardess t4, but looks like it’ll be the opposite. Tough break, I’ll have to try and make the best of it!

[details=My Thoughts][spoiler]
I’m trying to think like him for his situation… if I had 8 gold and knew my tech 1 was vulnerable, I probably would tech Sharks and Seer. He will have the gold for Sharks and a good chance at drawing it, and he’ll have known I likely will go for Stewardess, thus why he looky’d the Fargo. What’s my best answer to sharks though?

I think I have to accept that he might kill Oni next turn with Sharks, so what will I want against a level 3 Zane and an impending Plasmo? Another Stewardess I think is good, but what about the other card? Risky to tech in a T2, don’t really think he’ll be going for Oni or Prynn maxing this next cycle so OS is probably too early… Perhaps I get sharks of my own? Maybe I want something cheap, as he could have gone Stewardess himself / I can patrol to draw cards? OC it is.

Getting a tech 1 kill here gives me a lot of momentum to stay on offense I think, we’ll see if the sharks come to party or not… Next cycle I’ll probably need to decide on HH or Tech 2, and whether I want to turn this into a base race or whether I want to tech up. My deck is constructed more towards the base race right now, so I should keep that in mind going forward.

[details=My Thoughts][spoiler]
I’m going for a bit of a “feint” here: I want him to stay away from teching for a tech 2 plan, as I have decided I’m going to base race at anarchy tech 2 or jump straight to gunships. So, since I’m not drawing into a tech 2 anyway, I’m going to max Oni and hope that forces an Origin Story tech from him. My board position is immense and unless he’s teched Sharks already he’ll be hard pressed to tech up safely against the damage I’m laying.

I’m teching Sharks and Lizzo with the thought that either next turn I’m going to go all-in on Suits + Stewardess + Cadet for a blowout, or I’m going to go to tech 2 anarchy and force a tower or punish him hard.

Unfortunately, I draw Sharks from the reshuffle, and I wanted options in the turn 6 hand, so signs point to going tech 2 next turn. Hopefully he’ll play favorably for that plan XD

[details=Player 2, Turn 4]Chaos Mirror
Temporal Research
Tinkerer -> Worker
Nullcraft

Defense: 2, 2, 1, 3, 1 // no tech II building, and I’m gonna Origin Story Oni next turn, so I don’t need to attack him either. So, with no hot targets to get to, I can just focus on gaining value with patrol zone clears
Attacks: 4, 3, Zane, Nullcraft

Do I maybe want to do something that will generate defense? No need to build a Tech II this turn. Chaos Mirror is unneeded, so that leaves me at 4 cards in hand when I play Nullcraft.
I could mid Zane and get another card, or max him and give up 2 gold. Either way he can easily be picked off by something, so it would just be paying 3 gold to draw a card, and risking not having an Origin Story next turn. Better off just floating the excess. Or playing Onimaru as another sacrificial blocker (no way for Frozen to benefit from the “free” levels). And I think I want a card when he dies, rather than a gold.

Time to decide on a Tech II path. Next turn I’ll have 10 gold, planning to spend 6 of it on Prynn + Origin Story the lookout Onimaru, which means I can’t even afford to go to Tech II without skipping a worker. I don’t have Seers lining up with my draw, so I think I just go Peace to continue leveraging my gold advantage. Also, Ebbflow doesn’t beat Gunship, so that whole line isn’t optimal.

Tech for Garrison + Overeager, and patrol in scavenger, so I can worker + tech II + Origin Story Oni. I can just grab an extra Garrison if I end up going waaay down on cards, and then I’ll have 3 things that bring me back up (plus, you know, maxing Prynn and perma-banishing things)

Yuss this position looks dominant. He has barely anything to swing with, I’ve got inside track on my tech 2 and tech 3, he’s out all but Prynn next turn… Home team is in good shape. Teching in 2x Steam Tank to either base race w/ my Lizzo or shell up for tech 3. Teching 2x Gunship last in all likelihood!

This patrol is only weak to Stewardess, and even then I’m getting a fine trade. I hope he falls for the Origin Story bait, 5 gold spent on that would be wonderful for me (he’s going to move on tech 2 almost certainly, it’s just a question of whether he bets with tower or with OS in my mind).

And there’s the OS I wanted XD Sorry Eric, I’m not into Sun Tzu this game! He shows his endgame plan is Garrison machine, I lock it out and protect my tech 2 to make sure I can move to tech 3 next turn, this is looking very good right now!

It may seem questionable to give Prynn free levels, but honestly she doesn’t worry me: I have plenty of haste to punish investment in maxbanding her, I do not consider her a serious threat right now (in fact I 100% want her in to lock out Zane, he’s the one I don’t want to deal with right now!)

The only thing that does make me a little nervous is I am fairly in the dark with his tech choices, all I’ve seen is OS and a Seer… I imagine there is a Zane spell (mirror or sharks), 2x Cadet, a Garrison, perhaps a second Seer or a Stewardess, and a Sarge? Maybe 2 Sarges? Maybe 2 Garrisons?

I expect him to Prynn Maxband and do one of tower, patrol his nullcraft, or trade nullcrafts, to prevent me re-killing his tech 2. No matter. The only real thorny thing I can imagine him doing is if he has Origin Story AND sharks in hand, in which case he could return his own prynn, then get my tech 2. But even then, that’s why I grabbed Sharks of my own XD

Seer is annoying… He is really mounting scary amounts to hit back with, battle suits agh! I am building the tech 3 knowing I am almost certainly losing it, but now the investment will be there and he has to deal with it or suffer greatly… I am liking my chances less and less, but hopefully I can still pull out a W! I stressed about this turn all day, really want to have a good showing in this mirror match, but I have no delusion that I’m better than Eric

Garrison
Origin Story

Deck: Drill Sergeant, Temporal Research
Discard: Chaos Mirror, Fading Argo, Overeager, Drill Sergeant

Defense of 4, 3, 2
Attack of 3, 3, 3, 3
Plus Nullcraft, Zane, Story?, and maybe a rune or two?

12 gold available.

Basic Option:
Garrison (9)
Nullcraft (7), draw
Craft + unit kill stewardess
Zane (5)
Prynn kills Oni
Level Zane to 4 (4)
Zane kills Overeager, draw
Drill Sergeant (1), rs and draw 1 of 5 (two shots at an Overeager)
Seers break a tech building, but no way to hit a second.
Alternatively, instead of killing Oni and playing DS, Origin Story Oni (2)
Banish Cadet
3 units plus zane break 2 tech buildings, but Prynn fades away next turn (releasing her cache)

Another option is
Garrison (9)
Nullcraft (7)
Use up all but 1 attacker
Research and Drill S (2), draw 2 of 6, hoping for one of 2 Cadets in the top 3. Break one tech building, regardless. Or to draw into multiple 1-drops.

::hours of thought later::
Alright here’s the plan:
12 gold
Garrison (9)
Nullcraft (7)
Nullcraft, Prynn, and Overeager kill stewardess and oni
Drill Sergeant and Research (2), rs, draw 2 of 5
Play any Cadets
If i hit 2 cadets, prynn banishes the cadet, zane (0), zane, seer; seer w/ 2 runes beak tech 2 and 3 (30%)
If I hit one cadet, play fading argo/plasmoid (0), seer trades with cadet, seer + 2 runes breaks tech 3 (60%)
If I hit zero cadets, play fading argo if possible to try to draw one cadet
If I just draw complete nothing, play Plasmodium to try and draw into cadet (s), banish cadet if needed to ensure tech 3 goes down. (10%)

Reshuffled deck order:

Wow, definitely not a bad draw I caught you on… I thought I did things right this game but it looks as though I couldn’t quite snuff it. GG WP, not sure where I went wrong, probably didn’t commit hard enough for anarchy tech 2 (or maybe I should have gone for peace even though my early techs weren’t great for it.

Gg!
This was an excellent excercise in teching and playing to account for getting my tech buildings destroyed.
Generally, the tech 1 is more critical.

Yes you played around getting tech buildings killed marvelously. I think the mistake I made is teching too expensive: I was always gold-starved for creating a proper amount of aggression, and would have been better served I think teching Elite Training earlier, and Monkeys over the tech 2s I chose (especially Lizzo). Perhaps the second Stewardess was also overkill, and I should have grabbed a Seer of my own (I never realized how powerful Seers are AGAINST this deck!).

Any parting wisdom to share on how I played things?
