Good luck to you, too! This is my first matchup this tournament against a mixed color deck, so it should be interesting. Never played against any of the Necro / Blood / XXX decks, either. Any tips? :sunglasses:

I think Necro is looking pretty good for this game. It offers lots of chump blockers to soak up Crashbarrow damage, with good removal for heroes. We’ll see. If I start smelling some illusions I’ll be bringing in Sickness to combat them.

(edit: corrected an error with Quince and his Mirror Token Illusions)


#6

Quince’s death doesn’t kill my mirror ? I don’t understand what you mean there


#7

You’re correct. I was thinking of illusions that were effected by Quince’s maxband ability. I’ve corrected my last turn to refelct the non-death of the mirror.

#11

Hmmm, that’s true ! Do you want to change your turn 3, having one more gold, or just floating 3 ?


#12

I do want to change my turn in that case. Edit incoming.

Edit done.

Thanks for pointing that out, and thank you Marto for letting me alter my last turn. :smile:

And here comes the pain train. I expect that he’ll get a Crashbarrow into play this turn, either with Garth or by playing it legit from hand. Then there’s Graveyard. Stacking the patrol zone and sacrificing everything seems to be my only route to keeping my Tech II building alive, which I really need. Hopefully I can survive the first wave of CB’s and get back in it this next turn.

(Edit: accidentally posted my turn halfway through writing it up.)


#17

Did you want to patrol anything?


#18

Yeah, I just accidentally clicked post before I was done. I immediately went into edit and fixed it up.

Thoughts

I don’t have much that I can turtle with here, and as long as he has Garth, he’s probably not going to run out of cards. Crashbarrow / Graveyard combo is online, and I’ll probably see Quince this turn for some illusion shenanigans. Damn that’s a powerful strat. I’m pretty confident that this is gonna be a loss for me. Gonna look back after this and try to figure out what I could have done differently, since I’ll almost certainly run into another Necro / Blood / X deck if I stay in the tournament long enough
