My Thoughts

Very front-loaded first hand… I’m going to have a tough run of it next turn with virtually nothing to block with. Might end up with Tower + T1… So I spose best bet here is to get that Sensei out of the way, and pair it with Fargo. If I had any of Mox, Fargo, or Plexus in hand for next turn, I’d go Plasmo, but can’t afford to do that with the split as it stands: gives him too free of a run of the board. Let’s hope no Hook…

My Thoughts

Bah! Hook AND Monk… I desperately need to relieve some board pressure. FF actually helps with that a lot, so let’s go ahead and bounce the Monk for now. Keep grave from healing, so laying the hero is safe®. Let’s go Stewardess and Fencer for this first cycle, further relieving the pressure.


plz add the atk/hp stats, or following the game is really hard :frowning:

Maybe True Power of Storms might not be such a bad idea seeing as I already have a Maxband Grave and a bunch of 3 cost cards.

I think grave was on level 5 and thus would cost 2 to Maxband, no?

You are correct. My mistake.

My Thoughts

Think my best bet here is to set up a Maestro play w/ TR in the next hand. Patrol River in techn and my odds go up big, if he restrains from killing her I can go two step + maestro though and still have decent odds at a good setup


@Nopethebard just a friendly reminder that action is to you, no big rush

Can Grave use his sword rune then attack because of readiness?

nope, but it works the other way round - he can attack first and then use his sword rune - at least, that’s how I interpreted the text up to now :wink:

edit: acutally here’s the official ruling by Sirlin: http://codexcarddb.com/card/grave_stormborne

Indeed, by throwing his sword Grave taps, and thus cannot attack once tapped. Readiness allows him to attack without tapping, though, so he can attack then tap to throw the sword

Okay. Didn’t think but figured it was worth asking.

Grabbing Maestro and Starlet, hopefully I’ll draw a Maestro + a Virtuoso but at least a virtuoso…

Starlet, okay great better than a total whiff. Levels to Prynn, clear his board, sets me up decently well.


@Nopethebard it looks like you’re short a few cards on turns 3 and 4? should be 14 cards at end of turn 3, 16 cards at end of turn 4 (including workers), you have 13 after turn 3 and 12 after turn 4.

I just checked and found that one card was missing. Should it be in Discard? Also I wrote the wrong number for discard but my Spreadsheet had the other cards accounted for
