@zhavier It looks like even though I copied your thread title exactly the forums made the URL for my thread all lowercase, so your link doesn’t work.

I don’t think it was the uppercase. Whatever it was, its working now.

Huh. Well, as long as it works…?

Yikes, that’s a lot of attack. Fortunately, I have Older Brother here, and by putting him in SQL I can force him to trade off BRO. Next turn, I have enough gold for worker + Tech 1 + Tenderfoot + Hero + midband/spell.

MoLaC is unlikely because of Versatile Style, but given this opportunity to deal 5 damage to his base so early I’m thinking Anarchy would be the best route anyway. That spell will be an issue in a base race too since it can heal… I think the plan will be to try to use a combination of stealth from Anarchy Tech II and flying from Bird’s Nest to poke at his buildings and set up for Earthquake, and if I keep the pressure high enough I can easily transition into Gunships whether or not that works. Have to be wary, though, since his Tech I units are generally better than mine and Present Tech II is one of the strongest in the game.

No, you know what? Anarchy Tech II would be too easy to shut down with a Tower, and then I would have to stall to Tech III against Present or Finesse Tech II, which is unlikely to end well. Instead, let’s go for Strength and see if we can do a strange version of red aggro using things like Barbarbarian’s doubled stat boosts + overpower and Colossus’ unstoppable (along with just the size of both) to surpress his board and sneak enough damage in.

I’m skipping out on 2 damage to Tech 1 as insurance against Charge. I have another turn before I cycle, so I’ll go ahead and tech Grounded Guide + TD now, and I’ll figure out what else I want after I see his next turn. I can tech Discord if I see or expect birds, Versatile Style if he builds Growth Tech 2, and Reversal if he builds Strength or Anarchy Tech 2.

Don’t like skipping a worker, but I can’t let him keep Grave alive with that many units. This play equalizes the board a fair amount, and it’s unlikely he’ll be able to do much next turn since both Fencers are accounted for (unless he teched Starcrossed Starlet, but that’s only likely if he goes for the full Finesse engine). Hopefully I can get my Tech II down next turn without drawing either Barbarbarian (though knowing my luck I’m sure I’ll somehow get both).

Not much I can do with this hand other than trade my already crippled Taxman for his hero. Keeping it for defense would be a mistake because then he could do something like midband River, kill it, then max her to heal. I just hope I get something worth playing next turn…

Edit: Added Taxman steal
Edit 2: Actually adjusted the amount floated, lol

Taxman steals my float. Does that change your turn at all?

No, my hand was pretty rubbish. I’ll note it on my sheet.

I suppose it’s fine that I’m unlikely to draw any Tech II units next turn since I can’t really protect it this turn anyway, and if he tries to take out my Tech II he’ll probably lose most of his units to the Tower unless he can take it out first (and even then he’s probably losing a unit to Dog and at least one to the Tower, probably two). Grounded Guide simply had to go, especially since taking it out also took out a Fencer, so I just have to hope I can muster enough defense to get Tech II going soon.

Can’t have a 2nd hero with tech 2 down…

Knew I missed something obvious… I’ll fix that as soon as I can, and I’m fully expecting the redrawn hand for next turn to be worse.

Edit: @cstick, it’s fixed now.

This is probably the end… If Arg weren’t there I could Surprise Attack to clear most of his board, but I doubt the stuff I can use will be enough to protect my Tech II.
