So CM’s best opener is probably Rook + a 2-gold unit. Tiger Cub or Merfolk Prospector. Prospector dies to Deteriorate, that’s fine. I can Thieving Imp here and disrupt handsize, then next turn build up board with Garth + Deteriorate + skeleton. Lets me also get the jump on Tech 1’s, Bone Collectors to build up a scary board.

Ugh, another Garth + Crashbarrows deck, with Fencers and the Virtuso build to boot. But I need to survive to late game first. Doom Grasp, Discord, and Fencers will mince most of my normal midgame options. Maybe I could go Verdant Tree into Crash Bombers, then go for a quick Tech II? I’m not sure I can hold on efficiently enough to do that, and I’m also not sure yet what I’d be going for spec-wise. Beating Carpe to the first Crashbarrow? On the other hand, I might be best off getting as many units with 2+ health as I can before turn 3: they won’t do much damage if a Discord goes down, but they’d still be alive for Carpe to chew through them. I’d also have a decent amount of attack if he goes for something else. Do I want Rook or Midori for the opening? Rook will make Carpe go for Discord to counter Birds, maybe Midori is better for a slightly smaller chance of that happening, then I can also discourage Graveyard by threatening Nature Reclaims. Moment’s Peace could be handy too, given his heroes are less beefy than mine, and Doom Grasp still wouldn’t allow a big push under peace, since most of his big unit options are threatening because of their hasted combat damage.

Putting the Wisp in Scavenger instead of Technician to let me get both 2-HP units if I can, hopefully I draw the Treant… OK, got it. No Forest’s Favor without the Treant draw, though.

Tech considerations: Barbarbarians are decent for blocking against Crashbarrows, but Carpe having his own Drakk to kidnap and boost them with makes that pretty risky. Or, if he think he’s going for Blood, I could make use of the main Blood units not staying on the board, and go for lusted Horselords or something. They do more damage than Barbarbarians if I can hang on to them, since I haven’t got that many boosting options in the absence of Argagarg, and Mimics could come along for the ride.

Conclusion: CM is banking on drawing a Green spell so that they can play a 2G spell plus Tech 1. That’s why Midori and not Rook. So, is it Rampant Growth or Forest’s Favor, and can I protect against both? I can put up a total of three units/heroes without going down to 4 cards, and I’d rather not lose a hero this early. Mouse has three potential attackers. However, Mouse would have to cast the spell on the Wisp in order to attack with all three. If I patrol Imp in SQL, that’s 3 health, and Mouse either needs to attack with Wisp and another thing or buff Midori/the Panda, leaving the Wisp unable to attack. I think this turn is Garth + Javelineer + Skeleton (4), and patrol to protect the Javelineer for a free ping next turn. Then we’ll tech BC, and depending on how Garth looks, maybe tech Discord hoping for River or Heroes’ Hall.

Garth means no Discord, but I do have to worry about Doom Grasp on Midori, or Lich’s Bargain. Let’s ignore Midori’s spells for now, then – Graveyard isn’t out yet, so maybe I don’t need Nature Reclaims?

Anyhow, the main worry would be Lich’s Bargain, or Fencers, or Bone Collectors. Best options for staying alive are Crash Bombers, maybe Boulder + Mythmaking but that’s probably too slow and soft-locks me into Strength. That wouldn’t be to bad if Carpe goes for Lich, but it’s not ideal at the moment. I could also assume that Midori’s going to die, and tech in Kidnapping, or Bloodlust to finish off units that kills my 2-attack units. I could afford Drakk + Bloodlust + Crash Bomber + Tech II if I float a gold and lose a scavenger, which might be good enough against Fencers. I’ll tech one of each, then I can put Midori in scavenger, so I’m only spending all that gold if he dies.

… Well, this could be bad.

Huh, hadn’t noticed he hadn’t built Tech I yet. I could just tech up and block with the Ironbark Treant, I suppose. Or I could maxband Midori and hit the Graveyard or Garth. Nah, I don’t like the idea of leaving either alive if I dump everything into Midori, Doom Grasp or a Graveyard + Fencers will hurt with my current board. I’m just going to go for Tech II. Going with Balance, Dragons will be nice to kill off wounded Fencers or anything I hit with Bloodlust and Potent Basilisk are nice to prevent Kidnapping and Doom Grasp. Later I can go for lusty Horselords and Mimics. He’s got some decent anti-air units in Finesse and Blood, Skeleton Archery just gets destroyed by the Basilisk. I can change my focus depending on where he goes. If my technician gets killed I might draw one next turn, so I need something with immediate effect. Mimic and Dragon are pretty good for that, they’re both good for retaliating against Fencers. I can afford one a Drakk + Bloodlust and worker. I think I want Dragons first, then I could Bloodlust it and take the Graveyard down, or Garth.

Do I want the Ironbark Treant or a tower here? I’m going for Tech II, so I probably want the extra bodies instead of killing attacking Fencers. Keeping the Wisp in the back he has to use Deteriorate if he wants to set up Sacrifice the Weak.

Yuck, Mimics incoming. Also I’m sad that Garth is not River. But let’s see what I can do this turn. Imp trade into SQL, replay Imp (3), that gives me three gold to Bone Collector and make a skeleton. That lets me long-range skeleton or Garth attack, and I can put four skeletons plus the Imp in the patrol zone. And actually, mimics don’t have much to work with, so it’s probably Chameleons. I can definitely hold off Green with a patrol zone of skeletons. Let’s deteriorate the Wisp just to be safe.

Hmm. Maybe he’s going for skeleton spam. I’m guessing he won’t bother with Skeleton Lord because of Kidnapping, but Drakk’s midband could be pretty dangerous. Potent Basilisk should help if Skeleton Archery comes out, Nature Reclaims will get rid of that damn Graveyard. Thankfully the Imp just discarded Spore Shambler, I don’t care too much about that. Putting Ironbark Treant in SQL now, with the tower up he can counter-kill everything. It’s going to be a long wait for my next techs to come in, hopefully he’s not going for Blood.

Bloodlust costs 2.

Hmm. What’s the biggest threat to me right now? Chameleon + Bloodlust, which kills my Graveyard? And with Drakk levels, potentially a tech building. If I replay Imp, that has a 2/3 chance of stopping any two-card combo. And I bust this patrol zone wide open with Kidnapping next turn. I think I also kill Ironbark with Bone Collector (despite it being really satisfying to kidnap Ironbark, lol) because skeletons should give enough extra points of damage to finish off a hero. So I think it’s just replay Imp, build Finesse T2 to amp up these skeletons, and worker. Leaves me with Garth, four skeletons, and an Imp. Is Circle of Life a threat? No, because Mouse doesn’t actually have anything that can receive a flying rune from Faerie Dragon. I think we’re good! Wow, I feel like such a bully for recurring Imp. Decided to trade skeletons for Tiger Cub just to minimize Mouse’s options next turn.

Options:

  • Skip worker, maxband and Rampant Growth Midori, destroy Tech II. Doesn’t progress my game at all, but he’s drawn just over half his deck so I have a good chance of stopping the Tech II Finesse units from arriving on this shuffle. Leaves 5 attack on the board, but I still have Drakk to block, so my Tech II might stay up.
  • Maxband Midori, destroy the Graveyard, maybe skip worker and RG Drakk to kill the Thieving Imp. Only leaves 3 attack on the board, but leaves the Tech II up and nothing to block, so much less chance of keeping my own Tech II up…
  • Maxband Midori, destroy the Graveyard, either worker or play Playful Panda. Gives me more blockers to work with, but Tech II stays up.

Grounded Guide behind those Skeletons is enough to wreck me, going for the former. Teching in a Tiny Basilisk (far too late) to sneak past all those weenies.

Double check you’ve got everything down right, you mentioned you skipped worker but the post has you at 10 workers.

Things feel really good right now. I don’t have the kill on Midori, but I do have Skeletal Archery, which is just as good for protecting Tech II. Midband Garth (3), Garth and Imp kill Drakk, Garth to 6. Skeletal Archery (5), now I have the option of playing Bone Collector from Graveyard and maxbanding Garth to pull something, or replaying Imp yet again and killing a card. With Drakk dead, Bloodlust isn’t scary, so I think I’m actually doing Bone Collector + maxband. There’s only one card that makes me sad right now, so as long as we don’t see Daddy Basilisk, we’ll be good.

All good, I just did the old “move discarded card to worker column” trick.

Got a choice for Midori between killing Garth and getting all the non-token units killed so the Graveyard collapses, I think the latter’s preferable so my hand stops being wrecked. Finesse II can easily tear through the Basilisk if he has them in hand anyway, no reason to try to prevent Death Rites. Going for Mimics, Finesse II units stick around so Horselords would be a liability.

Okay, let’s do math. Fencer + Guide is 7 gold. But I can’t also River and Discord. I could River, double Discord, that lets me kill Basilisk and Dragon for 6 and I lose Garth. I can also eat skeletons with the hope of getting a Midori kill with Kidnapping. Or Doom Grasp. Double Grounded Guide lets both skeletons kill the Basilisk, letting Garth swing free at Tech II. Oh, and Basilisk is untargeteable anyway.

Thoughts

Leaving Garth alive at max again is risky, but I’ve gotta stop the Guides boosting a ton of Tech Is while I can. I could either build Tech III, or I could maxband Drakk, lust the Crash Bomber instead of now-frenzied Fairie Dragon, and trade it into a Guide. Oh, and then the remaining Guide’s only 4 attack, right? Then maxband Drakk in SQL trades at 2-to-1 on the current board, so his blocking by himself isn’t so bad, and if he’s Doom Grasped then Midori gets to keep flying. OK, let’s do that. With my hand size so low I’ll probably get another chance to build Tech III for Rexes.
