Ok so my goal with this deck is to leverage black and neutral tokens into fast omegacrons or quick-firing corpse catapults. Graveyard is also real useful if I end up going Finesse to make sure I have the virtuosos I need but atm that’s more of a backup than a plan. Would’ve been nice to have Jandra as an opening option but it didn’t happen that way. I thought about just going with Thieving Imp and hoping I happened to hit something he was relying on but if I whiffed that could have put me behind right from the jump. So I’m taking a conservative path and getting River out. I’m a little torn between pestering haunt and javelineer: going for jav on the chance he doesn’t have deteriorate this turn.

Ok so kiiiiiinda wishing I had just played the haunt last turn but I still have some decent options. I thought about playing my own rogue instead of leveling River but I figured that loses HARD to deteriorate and is not great against sac the weak either. With this line of play the only way I lose River is if he max bands Vandy, which means no free levels. Plus he misses out on either worker or tech 1 so that’s a fine trade for me. More likely he decides it’s not worth and just places and patrols with either thieving imp or jandra. Manageable. Teched fencers but I’m beginning to think subbing one for a discord might’ve been the better play.

@CesareB

The Poisonblade Rogue does damage in -1/-1 Runes. The Runes can only be discarded if +1/+1 Runes are applied. You could still Midband River but she would be L3 0/2.

http://codexcarddb.com/ruling/healing_x

Would you like to do something different on your turn?


#6

@witspur

I believe the Rogue only does that when she is attacking, not while defending.


#7

@CesareB

Oh, you may very well be right.


#8

@CesareB

I just looked up the specific card and it does say “attacks: -1/-1 Runes blah, blah” My bad dude.


#9

@witspur
All good friend. As such my turn stands lol.


#10

@CesareB

Understood. My first turn could have been optimized a wee bit better, all things considered. Darn rules. LOL.

Edited: Forgot to Discard Dark Pact. Edited to reflect that it would be in my discard pile.

If I have the ability to kill Vandy, I’m taking it. That determined quite a bit of this turn. All I was left with was deciding what to do with the 2g I didn’t use in taking her out. At first I was leaning toward my Poisonblade as insurance against double Fencer, but on reflection it’s pretty unlikely that was his tech choice, let alone that he drew it. Second thought was just float it and lean heavily on getting to Tech 2 next turn. But with River already maxed the only way I spend that extra money is to go down to a 3 card hand and I don’t see that as much of an upside. So I’d probably end up floating the gold for a 2nd turn and that’s just grossly inefficient. Which left HH as my choice. If his board is scary enough to warrant delaying tech 2 by a turn, then I have the option to bring out Garth and chill for a bit: otherwise it’s full steam ahead on the bullet train to omegatron city. One tech choice for each option sounds about right. I can put in BC and/or Void Star next turn it there’s a max Garth play to be made.

Grave isn’t so bad at Midland but if he max bands next turn I lose River and anything I might want to play anyway so I’ll take my shot here. I’m going down on cards but I’m taking him with me and I have Garth and maybe Vir to build my hand back up next turn regardless.

Bold move trading River for Grave. I utilized the Elite spot thinking you wouldn’t sacrifice her. A miscalculation on my part.

Yeah I figured I had gotten out of her pretty much all I was going to and if it came down to trade her for Grave vs. lose her to Grave’s sword rune I’d rather get something for my trouble.

Things might be starting to turn in his favor. There are several things in his deck that can clear out my new skeleton babies and I’m PRETTY reliant on Garth surviving until next turn so I can snag my Void Star and/or cast Lich’s Bargain. Could be a rough couple of turns otherwise.

Ooof I should really pay more attention than to lose a skelly to sparkshot. Garth lives so not all is lost though, and unless he answers the Void Star I think things get pretty rough for him. He could answer by tutoring for Shadow Blade but that’s real expensive AND means he can’t attack with Vandy so I’d be cool with that. Which leaves both Garth and Vir around so that’s nice. Just gotta delay until the omegas arrive. Teching a 2nd Lich’s Bargain on the off chance he does Shadow Blade and I lose the one I’m about to draw. I need my undead army as sacrifices.

@CesareB

I’m going to try and find the answer, but if I play Sac the Weak, does my Gargoyle get sacrificed?


#19

Found it, and the answer is no. He is okay cuz indestructible and all that.


#20

@witspur Yeah you wouldn’t destroy him but uh you should not do that for uh other reasons. Good ones I promise.
