OK, I need to work on dealing with those Taxmen, because everything goes downhill from them controlling the board cheaply. Bone Collectors are on parity stats-wise, but the Taxmen benefit more from their ability if they arrive first. Rambasa Twins cost the same, and trade on defence. I could try putting a Necromancer behind them again if I can afford a Tech Lab. Skeletons can slow them down, but probably need a Tower to be useful. Anything else?

Starting with Savior Monk again, more for the stats than the healing. No white spells next turn, maybe Safe Attacking could be an early option? Not great for later, though. I’d like to delay playing a hero, because I want Pyrnn ready to come in and cast Undo at Tech I. Maybe the best thing is to play the Viper too now, and hope to draw Safe Attacking. Then I can try to be a bit more aggressive, and control the board enough to not fall over when Plasmodium arrives.

Thinking of Rambasa Twin + Undo next turn. That’s two expensive cards, though. Is there a cheap card I could bring in? Bringing in a Seer to mess with Plasmodium could be amusing, but I’d probably be workering it later.

… Ack, fluffed the draw. I could always get the Fox Primus, depending on what Marto puts down.

On second thought, Rambasa Twins are really expensive if I want to attempt a fast Tech II. Nah, let’s just go for it and bring in a Twin, and a Hooded Executioner to punish Marto if he doesn’t play any other Tech 0 units. If he’s going for Anarchy again, I can assume going Necromancy isn’t safe due to low health values.

I could play Fox Primus here, or Aged Sensei in addition to Grave, but I think I need to maximise my chances of drawing my teched cards in case I’m facing double Taxman again.

… Nice, I have the Executioner. Hoping Nullcraft doesn’t appear.

OK, let’s think about this. 2 gold gets me the Executioner, I want that no matter what. 3 gold kills off a Taxman, so I can kill Squad Leader easily. That leaves me 2 more gold, so I can midband Grave or play Safe Attacking. If I midband, he can kill the other Taxman, otherwise I’d be trading two things with it, and then I have both starting units to block against Mox, Plasmodium, and Zane. I could Grappling Hook the Taxman out of Technician too, if I want.

What’s going to be best to tech in? I’ll have 4 gold free next turn, so I could rely on Grave to kill any threats, or I could bring in the Twins, so I don’t need anything urgently for next turn. Maybe something to deal with Birds in case they show up? I think I’ve got enough board to get away with Versatile Style, then I’ve got some insurance against Anarchy. Then maybe a Focus Master to work around all these 3-vs-3 matchups.

Everything dies to Plasmodium, so I think I’m best off putting Fox Viper in front so Mox can’t kill it, and Zane would have to midband to survive against it. Hopefully there aren’t sharks incoming.

… Nice, no draw on the Focus Master so I can get it on time if I tech up next turn.

Bah, nearly made it to Tech II without being on the back foot.

If I tech up, I can’t play the Twins – I miscounted last turn – so I wouldn’t have much to block up with. If I play the Twins, I’ve got 3 gold for Garth + Skeleton, or a Tower, or Fox Primus if I’m worried about Birds.

Alternatively, I could blow all but 1 gold to Snapback Rook. But what does that get me? I could put Sensei or a Skeleton down to block, but that’s still 3 blockers against 3 attackers, including Plasmodium and either Zane or Vir. I could put Safe Attacking down, and have Savior Monk kill Zane. That gives me a hero at Level 3, but both my options midband and Level 4, so they’ll still only have 4 health when they’re facing Plasmodium. Or, I just sacrifice the Monk, and level them to 5, so in SQL they have 5 health. They’re still killed by the remaining units. No, I can’t afford the hero kill here. How about if I run the Monk into Plasmodium instead? Then Zane levels and gets the kill.

Twins + hero is safest here, I think. Then a unit to get my hand down, I want to avoid drawing all my Tech II units. Teching a Dragon for birds + tech kills, and Vigor Adept for good stats. Putting Savior Monk in Technician to discourage Thunderclap, and Sensei in Squad Leader so the Mox can’t do anything.

… And I drew most my Tech II units anyway. Damn. Looks like I’ll be teching in a Martial Mastery.

No tech II up, so Garth's maxband doesn't fear that much dreadful (worst case, he trade rambasas and bring them back). Just hoping he didn't tech Lich's Bargain (and even so, Plasmodium can dispose of a SQL horror).

Several options here. I can trade pretty much everything and tech up, or use a combo of Monkey + Zane and lose near nothing, but stick to tech II. Best lines imho are: * Rook kills sql, plasmo trades with a twin, summon and trade zane with other twin, birds trade with monk, mox and Glaxx break Tower, Monkey kills Garth and rook midbands (or I don't play monkey and save a card, kill garth with glaxx and save a bird by killing monk with Mox), and I've enough money for worker + Tech III or *Rook kills SQL, Zane trades with Elite, Battle Suits, Mox kills scav, birds trade with Monk, Glaxx breaks tower, monkey kills Garth, Plasmo hits a random tech. Maybe Max Zane is better though ?

GG, the early Executioner got my hopes up, but it looks like I just need to bite the bullet and tech Lich’s Bargain? Or it’s just because the patrol on that turn wasn’t thought out? I’m not used to fighting against Anarchy II. I’ll put up a first turn tomorrow, anyway.

Sorry, I completely overlooked our game lately. Still wanting to proceed ? Or maybe we can change codexes, as I saw you wanted to play monocolor, and I’m very fine with it as well.


#57

I’m happy to keep playing with current specs, if you’re not getting bored of the steamrolling. I’m happy either way. Anything stick out that I’m screwing up? The Executioner worked well, but I’m struggling against Anarchy.
