Having to worker Graveyard is pretty annoying.

Deteriorate lets me clear the patrol with my 1/1, then Level Grave and destroy Dreamfire’s Tech I, at the expense of only having Grave left alive. That seems like a pretty good trade against a Blue starter, and I can let Grave and the Crawler bully anything that comes out.

Putting the Crypt Crawler in Technician risks it being Arrested, but gets me a card if it gets hit with Sacrifice the Weak.

I’d like to just take the opportunity to get Tech II first here, but that leaves me with 2 gold and a hand full of 3-cost cards, so I have to be a bit more aggressive here. On the other hand, I can’t afford to send something to die in combat, so the best I can do is use Grave’s sword on something. I want Onimaru still on the board to stop Garth arriving, so I suppose I’m killing the Porkhand.

This seems as good a time as any to tech up. With me drawing into a couple of Cadets, I can play the ones I draw next turn while spending most of my gold next turn on either Garth + Doom Grasp, maxband Garth fetching a Drill Sergeant, or Midbandori.
Trading Oni away to deny free lvls to Orpal wo’s likely to drop next. Brave Knight on elite with Bluecoat in the backline should take some non-negligible resources to get through.

Trying something different here, if I can make the Censorship Council stick then Flagstone Garrison can’t do much good. I’ve got a lot of turns to whether before that happens, though. Probably teching in a Juggernaut or two next turn to go for the base kill, hopefully I can get TPoS to fire before Grave gets Doom Grasped.

Don’t need to worry about Judgment Day yet, so let’s go bananas! I’m skipping a worker just because I don’t want to give up either of the cards in my hand, and I don’t mind teching extra cards for now.

I don’t really mind losing Death Rites, and I’m happy (though surprised) to get the kill and Bigby and another turn free of Judgment Day. I guess charnel_mouse is planning a big Orpal play? I don’t think there’s too much to be afraid of, though.
I also don’t mind going down on cards, since with Garth around I’m guaranteed to draw a Garrison next turn.

GG, turns out deciding to do early pressure after several turns of teching and workering your Graveyard is a bad idea.
