My Thoughts

Interesting, he’s going straight at my face, perhaps to discourage too much DP? Not sure. Part of me feels like I shouldn’t “get cute” and stick to vanilla finesse engine, but part of me knows Zhav will expect and be ready for that, too. I almost wonder if Two-Step + Gargs / Soul Stone Jandra would be a good move here. He’s down cards early, next turn probably Imp, go from there!

Feels weird not getting Dark Pact, but I really want Fencer (I’m not sure I can get Gargs to work, don’t feel really strong about TB, and I want to strike quickly) and Soul Stone seems like a great move with Jandra down and relatively safe

Well, I do get the 3-hero meta off, and he’s hard-up for gold. There’s a chance here yet, but it’s going to be tricky. Grabbing Starlet and I’m probably going to want 2x Appel Stomp next turn, but we’ll see what he manages to kill.

Thoughts

Ok, meta, and he patrolled the heroes, so I can actually attack them, which is good. I can kill both heroes, either surprise attack with no Molac, or Molac, but its a little harder, less total damage, but a lot more threat for next turn. Surprise attack or Molac, I can get 4 runes total. With SA, Galina gets 3 runes, kills Garth, Sharks kill River, Arg to max for an extra rune (total 5, 3 spent), arg kills skeleton, BA kills Grounded Guide, Move 1 rune to wisp, wisp and zane kill vandy, his board is clear, I have arg, water elemental, Galina and BA, only patrolling water elemental and maybe BRO, thats a rough spot with not a lot of threat next turn. Molac is better threat overall for next turn.


#12

Looks like that’s game, GGWP!


#13

I was a little worried when i saw I would have a 3 hero meta to face down, but then you put the heroes in front where I could attack them.

Funny thing is, I think we are in a Rock Paper Scissors. I beat you, you beat Dreamfire, and Dreamfire beats me.


#14

This deck really struggles with Miracle Grow, that’s for sure. I’m not totally clear what I should have done differently. Maybe go hero’s hall instead of Imp, or leave rook up instead of giving the card? Maybe tech Dark Pact / Shadow Blade instead of Soul Stone? Tough to say, but it’s a hard matchup.

Agreed that @Dreamfire’s Balance splash does provide a nice mixup against what you’ve got. GL and HF to you both, I’m psyched to watch the finals!


#15

Crazy world when pulling off a T5 triple meta just isn’t enough! Mythmaking a nice touch too.


#16

Looking back:

a) It was a bad break, him drawing the MoLaC on Turn 6 (66% it’s in the other 6 cards in the deck), and
b) Had he not, and had I patrolled better, I could indeed have potentially gotten a base race to work in my favor

Mistake on my part to patrol both heroes, I should have gone with Maestro for fetch and patrolled it + Skele alone


#17

With that patrol I might have just broken your base with Surprise Attack instead of MOLAC.


#18

Zane + Surprise Attack is 7g for 3 runes, I don’t think you’d have quite gotten there.

5 to get through maestro + 1 to get through skele, you get the same 4 runes if you bring Rook after, still need 1 rune to get through wisp, so you have 4Galina + 2Zane + 6 Sharks + 3 move runes = 15? Close but not quite.

I would have been in trouble though, for sure :slight_smile:


#19

Any runes on BA count twice, and i had BRO and 9g, enough for 4 runes.


#20

Was counting the BA rune twice as a means to kill maestro :grin:
