My Thoughts

Ooof, not my ideal turn 1 hand… really would have liked to get Haunt, and have something I actually want to worker. In 7 games this tourney I have not once played StW, it’s a little expensive and late-game for this deck, so I think I’ll worker that. Who knows if that’s a good choice, who knows if I have any idea how to properly play this matchup.

My Thoughts

I spose I just chain LB for a bit and hope to overrun? Maybe war drums is an angle to try? XD Idk, I’m not fooling myself that I really know my limits on this deck, and Zhav’s a better player, so I’ll just try to push the tempo and see what I can get away with. An Imp hit here when Zhav went down cards feels too good to pass up, and like I really care about tech buildings lol

My Thoughts

Well, that’s not the worst it could be. I doubt it’ll be time spiral here, but I’ll kill the Fargo w/ det anyway and get a dink on the tech1. I think more likely Zhav’s gambling on a LB + techup. I’ll go Lust + BC, see what I can get done on offense.

OOOF. The double LB. This will be tough to fight back. He’ll be able to get a Garth kill but there isn’t a ton I can do about it, so let’s hope I draw Bloodlust + BC and I can make the best of it


This is certainly a game of some kind

Yeah nope, that was a predictably great play I could do virtually nothing about. Maybe a kidnapping can slow things down enough to let me bleed Zhav out, but doubtful at this point. I’ll stack the board and hope.

Thoughts

The crazy part of my brain wonders about using ANOTHER lich’s bargain… If I somehow draw assimilate, i could grab a gy by skipping a worker. If I grab FF, I can destroy gy, fargo is a better blocker, and battle suits and time spiral are useless atm. I’m gonna gamble on the draw.

Reasonable thing to do here is probably to fold, but hey I’ve had stranger things happen on this deck XD

My Thoughts

Well this is a tough spot, but the good thing is I have a strong econ advantage, and an inside track on a base race. That Assimilate doesn’t feel like it was the wisest choice of Zhav’s limited resources, as the Graveyard was not hyper-critical to my plan. I could just blow it up right now w/ Lust and Kidnapping, but then I’m not really workering or advancing my position meaningfully, so I think I’ll just kind of turtle a little, use Lust to pick off that other stuff, and hope I can run Zhav out of steam while peppering his base. Pretty much my only out remaining. Decent chance he breaks the tech 1 here, or maybe goes straight face, I spose we’ll see

You cast a second LB, so base is at 12.

You’re right, and with that knowledge I’ll scoop, GG WP! Jackpot of a T3 draw, I’m okay losing the tourney to that if that’s what the next game brings

that was indeed a lucky hail mary turn. LB is such a big swing, even though you cast it too, i definitely gained the momentum. I was really worried youd stall me out and force my econ disadvantage by drawing out the game. But instead, we just threw all the punches at each other. :smiley:
