MonoGreen can easily get an economic advantage, especially as P2 and against multi-color, so I need to apply pressure right off the bat.
Lettucemode is pretty likely to get Tiny B’s, so I may not want to rely on heroes too much, but I still think I’ll go for the early HH next turn (and still be able to drop Jav and Deteriorate). Tiny B of my own and DP likely to be my first techs.

Sorry for delay, thanks for waiting.

Interesting choice by lettucemode, going for such an early cycle. Can’t say I know what it means, but I don’t think it should change my plans for now. I’ll clear the patrol zone, since Green can only work with stuff it has on the board, and keep building my side of the board.
Teching Dark Pact for cycling and Tiny B as a potential CoL target, and to have it in the deck against any big units that might drop.
…
I whiffed, but that’s ok. Graveyard isn’t a bad drop, and I can bring in Zane for extra punch. And if lettucemode gives me a reason to level Vandy up, I might tech Meta sooner than I’d thought.

I’ll just keep clearing lettucemode’s board and building up my own. I’m bringing in Midori to possibly set up CoL next turn, since DP and Graveyard ensure that I don’t go down on cards or slow down my cycle. Teching a Gemscout Owl as a cheap way to make my Mimics flying.
I might want Shadowblade next turn to deal with a Tiny B, but since I’ll tech before reshuffling I don’t need to commit yet.

Thoughts

And there are the Basilisks, right on cue… One of them is StW fodder for sure, and I could take out the 2nd if I draw Deteriorate. I could tech more cards for dealing with the 2nd one, but Shadowblade is too expensive and Moment’s Peace is too much of a tempo loss.
In any case, I can’t count on clearing the patrol zone, so I might end up losing one of my heroes. I can probably guarantee that Vandy survives, so teching spells for her is relatively safe: Soul Stone and the other DP would both be nice to draw right away (definitely moreso than Gemscout or CoL…). I prefer these over an additional tech 1 unit, which risks overflowing my Graveyard.
…
Got the 2nd DP, let’s keep digging for that Deteriorate!
…
Got Detoriate, let’s clear the board yet again! Setting up Meta, with Soul Stoned Tiny B as backup.
…
And I redrew DP in my next hand. Not particularly worried about base damage, so I’ll probably keep the cycle going.

Concede, GG. @zhavier

GG! I had a pretty lucky break drawing into Deteriorate there (Dark Pact is a ridiculously good draw engine), otherwise this turn would’ve looked a lot different. Good luck in the rest of the tournament!

Yea you too. Hopefully I learn how to play defense before the end.
