Yeah, Truth and Newsman are definitely scarier for me here.
Your base should be on 19, by the way.

Pretty confident I can get out a lot of targetted effects next turn, so as long as zhavier doesn’t have another copy of Macciatus I should be OK.

OK, I can’t do much this turn except wall up, but I can max out Rook so his Two Lives kick in on zhavier’s turn. If I leave the scavenger and technician alone, there’s hopefully not much zhavier can play on his turn anyway.

Can Rook patrol by himself? If I put Rook in Squad Leader, and he gets Nether Drained by Garth, he can be killed by Reteller and the mirrors, with the former able to come back into play. If I put him in Lookout, this would at least cost more gold. Or I could put him in Technician, which lets me have draw back up to 5 cards. Given how cheap illusions are, that might be a better tradeoff. That still leaves a 5/5 Macciatus able to kill something, though, so let’s put some chaff blockers in.

… I can afford my whole hand, hasting that Glider would take out Macciatus nicely.

Ugh, another Free Speech. All I can bring out effectively here is the Crash Bomber, so I might as well be rid of the Jail.

That’s as good as a dead hand for me, GG. Free Speech stopped me cold.


#50

On your Turn 9 I really thought you could make a good swing at me, but not quite enough to put me down, and it also would have meant I could make a counter swing. I managed to drain you of cards and then lock you down with free speech. I got a bit lucky, for sure.


#51

Yeah, I put too much faith in my ability to get out Drakk or Bloodlust, I think I should have teched in an earlier Crashbarrow on turn 4 instead of another Bloodlust and I might have been OK. I’ll put up a first turn tomorrow.
