[CAMS19, Round2] FrozenStorm [Past/Future]/Finesse vs Unity [Balance/Growth]/Present

Balance.

Sorry again. It´s just hard to keep track of everything all the time. I am fine with whatever call is made.

I don’t think there’s any need to wait on Zhav to chime in if I, as also a judge, rule against myself. Let’s just play on

My Thoughts

Oh man, discord is actually really good value here… Let’s go over options quick:

  1. Vir + River + Discord + swap TR to topdeck. As long as Maestro / Starlet isn’t on top, I can get good value out of that, and I spose even if they are on top, I can make next turn into a good one.
  2. Prynn + TR. 50/50 to get Maestro, 25% to perfect Maestro + Starlet, backup plan is River + Discord / Two Step and skip worker? What am I doing with the Maestro if I get it? Gunning down the tree and denting the tower / tech 2? Honestly isn’t the best… I like the discord and delay plan better.

Okay then, teching Leaping Lizard and the other Starlet, checking topdeck…
Two Step on top. That actually accomplishes the goal of Discord but almost better… the only downside being the “better” way leaves fencer up for possible Mimic-ing… Worth risking it? I mean feels pretty likely Mimic is his aim… Outside chance its Fairie or Potent B I spose… Ah well, think it is better to sac the fencer…

Okay then, so next turn looks like Suicide Vir, Prynn + TR, Maestro + Starlet + hopefully a fencer, maaaybe Maestro + Starlet + tech 3? Sounds reasonable I spose. Patrolling Vir in techn, if he goes for a rampant growth kill I can cut off the tech 3 option and go hard at the Fencer spam that way.


I will give myself the -1 gold penalty (did you mean that by float the cost forward?). It will not fix the mistake, but I don´t know what else I could do.

Gracious of you to take the 1g penalty there, I appreciate that consolation.

My Thoughts

Lol I suck at this game… PUT THE NULLCRAFT IN SQL YOU DUMMY! He actually kinda did my OG TR plan a favor killing River, but oh well… I don’t think it’ll actually help much to do that plan anyway. I’m pretty low odds for a fencer, so two more cards isn’t going to help a ton. I think better to try and block and tech up. He can barely afford tech 3 + T-Rex, but hopefully I can win a race with that.

Wow what a reshuffle draw. Stay alive, Maestro!

Nope, which I very desperately needed and thus why he was in resist XD

No I did not. Thank you Legion. So I just kill Star-Crossed Starlet.

you can kill the starlet and a worker :slight_smile:

Indeed, I will operate on that assumption. Is the Mimic Patrolling, or ramming Maestro frustratedly?

My Thoughts

Teching 2x Guide, as that’ll be of much help against Dinosaurs. Hoping to draw some virtuousos, I can dig a fair bit so let’s hope we do some damage!

Fencer on top, that’s promising, definitely worth TRing

Fencer + Two Step, Nullcraft on top… Darn. No BM. What are my options from this point?

  • Two Step isn’t buying me more than 2 more damage into Dino, not gonna be worth
  • Midbanding Vir to direct-play Nullcraft gives me one more crack for 40% to a BM… That ain’t bad. Let’s do it. If I whiff I can still take down tree + tech 3 if I wanna, though that leaves the mimic up…

    YASSS. Dug one up. So what’s the best play? I think Nullc kills mimic, Virtuos kill buildings, and force the Trex + maybe a Mimic or Now!'d something to come at me. Hopefully not Mimic + Dinosize for an OTK lol

starlet, fencers and master are nowhere to be seen tho XD

Errbody backline, don’t want no overpower shenanigans :wink: edited to reflect properly tho
