OK - illusions actually fairly strong here as long as they are not patrolled. Heroes bad, birds bad, rook bad. Going to want some free speech. This turn - Aven? prevents sensei, he goes for either fox primus - expensive and not that good - with tech 1, or a saviour monk and a hero. Either way, I can next turn defen with porkhand and tech up. Other option is little play and hero for the swing next turn, but rook OP.

Good luck have fun

Time to exploit Blue’s weak early game.

It’s really helpful if you put what level your heroes are to help keep track, and their stats as well!

OK options - Aven. Attack G or base? One damage to G, on three, another attack +1 kills - but readiness so can assume has 1 extra armour the whole time. Attack base - whatever at this stage. Cards - Lawful not useful at this point, I don’t want to draw my tech 1. Truth likewise. Jail - could actually work!? I block with BI, he can’t get a unit out… then what? doesn’t build into much. PHM and BI and tech building - an injured Grave can’t actually kill PH and survive Aven next turn. Fencers next turn take out all his tech 0 units and he has no tech I. Let’s do it.

Sorry about that

You got 2 porkys? One on board and one in next hand?

Made a card handling error, hand redrawn - thanks @hardy83 for pointing it out.

Before I post my turn, I am pretty sure a heroes’ hall only costs 2 and only has 4 health - does that change what you do?

Theoretically you have a building inspector in play, making it cost 1 more. He’s not on your summary though, so it seems you forgot about him.

What a lot of errors in the last post. OK new turn - I can definitely kill that Grave at a card cost. Worth it? I can use a Brave Knight to recurperate cards later - or sink gold into my hero when I have them upon later turns. Quince for some illusions rather than units from hand.

With no tech building I expect he is going for some spells, so lets bully with FS.

I think this is GG. I don’t see any way to set anything up like this. I know I shouldn’t have tried to push offense so hard from player 2, but do you see anything else I did wrong that you’d like to point out?
@FrozenStorm I lose.

Probably would have been best to patrol a Bird in SQL on turn 3, and yea turn 2 the Hero’s Hall was really optimistic. Probably would have been better to lay Monk + Sensei, and patrol Sensei in Techn with Grave backline. That or just maxband grave to take down Porky and Aven. You had a tough opening hand for White P2 though, tricky situation to navigate. Rook + Smoker might have been a better turn 1, with smoker scav. Aven gets the free kill, sure, but it leaves Rook a healthier blocker.

GG! From my side, that early expensive Grave seemed like more of a target than a threat, especially when I had a lot of burst between fencers and Truth copying them.

That makes sense. Thanks for the advice and see you next Tournament.
