[CAMS19] EricF [Anarchy/Blood]/Demonology vs FrozenStorm [Past/Future]/Finesse

@FrozenStorm Sorry about the delay: post-vacation catchup work :slight_smile:

Player 1, Turn 1

Careless Musketeer — Tech 0 -> Worker
Bombaster — Tech 0
Makeshift Rambaster — Tech 0
Charge — Magic
Pillage — Magic

No 1-drop is #sad. Musketeer dies to Nullcraft, so that’s an easy worker. Blood Tech II deals with Mox just fine, so let’s get some points on the board.

4 gold (4)
Worker (3)
Makeshift Rambaster (1)
Rambaster bastes your base for 3
Discard 3, Draw 5. Float 1 gold.

No patrol

Makeshift Rambaster (1/2)

Base - 20

5 workers, 1 gold
Hand: 5

My Thoughts

Hmm, seems exceptionally unlikely he would lay Zane so vulnerable to nullcraft unless he was planning to use another hero. Think I’m safe to go River here and skip t1 for right now. Grabbing a discord and obv two step.

P1, Turn 3
  1. Gunpoint Taxman
  2. Bloodrage Ogre — Tech 0
  3. Pillage — Magic
  4. Scorch — Magic
  5. Charge — Magic

So, I could pay 4 gold to get rid of the Fargo, then another 3 to max Zane (eating River) skipping worker and dealing another 3 base damage. And also losing Rambaster on the swing back. Or just let River live, and block up (+deal an extra 2!)

Tech Chaos Mirror + Crash Bomber

Also, 2 damage is probably worth more than a worker at this point: on the next pass through my deck I can deal a clean 8 direct damage if I grab 2x Dark Pact… and I still have Gargoyle coming down next turn + Drakk & potential Crash Bombers to finish things off.

6 gold (7)
Bloodrage Ogre (5)
Charge on Ogre (3)
Ogre trades with Fargo
Zane and Rambaster cook your Base for another 5 points
Gunpoint Taxman (1)
Pillage your Base for another 2 points. 7 health left. Tick Tock. (0)
Discard 1, Draw 3

SQL - Gunpoint Taxman (3/3 +1)

My Thoughts

I’m on the knife’s edge the rest of the game here. I risk losing straight up to surprise attack (I think that’s the likely tech for him) if I don’t max patrol. Need nullcraft to patrol SQL to keep Garg out. I think my best bet to win is actually teching up, as no way I win a base race down 13 on just tech 1. The usual grind out an advantage with Two Step + Mox isn’t going to survive long enough. So I think I tech up for Hive + … Xenostalker is a huge Kidnapping risk. I’ll grab an Omegacron, gives me solid card draw as well.

This video will never stop being relevant to Codex:

Tell me about it…

While technically the Neo Plexus is dead & not patrolling, it doesn’t actually matter:

Player 1, Turn 6:

6 gold (7)
Vandy (5)
Scorch your Base for 2 (1)
Dark Pact you for the final blow!

(or just this on-board method:
6 gold (7)
Max Zane (0)
Zane kills Vir
Rambaster Bastes your last 3 hp)

you are a beast, dear sir

My bad, that was supposed to be tinkerer. So maybe not the last way to kill me, but yea, the first way works just fine.

GG WP @EricF, I hope I am not the fastest death of the tourney

Don’t worry, I also died P1T6.
