Tech II is still up, time for a last stand. If Focus Master isn’t Undone, and Battle Suits don’t come back, I shouldn’t lose too much. That Rememberer’s going to be trouble quickly, there’ll be a free Shimmer Ray or Golgort arriving next turn. Versatile Style should at least help with a Ray.

My Thoughts

Well phew, no Mind-Parry Monk! However, Training Grounds and Focus Master are patrolled ideally here, and if I don’t break the tech 2, Mind-Parry Monk could really spoil a Archon plan! But what can I do about that now? I am pretty low on firepower. I think my best bet is max out Prynn, remove that Focus Master, and kill Grave with my Rememberer. That will maxband Geiger, let him flicker the Shimmer Ray in defense. He won’t be able to kill anything directly, and indeed if he does get an MPM out I’ll be in trouble. So let’s tech 2x R&D to help deal with that possibility. Rewind wouldn’t be bad either actually, but I don’t know that Prynn will survive to play that.

Hope for no MPM!



#105

Thanks, you’ve nicely dealt with it though, I’'d forgotten about Prynn’s maxband!

For future reference, Golgort would have received a fading counter here (not that it mattered) as he doesn’t care who does the combat damage, only that you do it.

My Thoughts

No MPM still, should be GG!



#108

I did not know that! That makes him much better


#109

Yep, that would about do it. Well played! It was fun going on the early offensive.
As you mentioned at the time, I went for your Tech II a turn earlier than I needed to, because I wasn’t paying attention to draws. Waiting might have stopped me getting so down on cards for most of the rest of the game, especially the hand for Turn 7, and repeatedly failing to draw any Mind Parry Monks…


#110

GG WP! Yea in hindsight you would have been better off not hooking on turn 4 and instead getting my tech two low, that would have made killing it turn 5 (when it mattered) even easier. When you did re-kill it on turn 5 you had me worried, though, as I had set up that combo draw and not playing it really hurt my momentum.

Looks like you bottom-decked your MPMs just in time for me to destroy your tech 2 though, that helped me get back in things. I had a rough draw or two myself, them’s the breaks :wink:

Would you like to play again?


#111

Definitely, did you want to swap sides?


#112

I’m game for whatever :slight_smile: You just let me know after each game what you’d like to play. GL HF!

Let’s see how Mox does! White doesn’t have any 3hp starter units so Mox + Suits + Nullcraft is actually pretty potent offense!



#113

Hypothetically, I’m guessing Mox still gets disabled if it’s hit with a Reversal, since it never left play?


#114

Yea, disabled will stick with it through it’s “death” from the damage, for the one turn that disabled lasts

(Discarded Sensei’s Advice for Martial Mastery, FS’s hand is Time Spiral, Argonaut, Tinkerer.) The Argonaut will be a scary 4/4 with Readiness, I’m not so worried about the rest. The health ““gain”” Inverse Power Ninja gets when Aged Sensei goes down should keep her up and hitting next turn. Next turn will probably see a dead spell in my hand from not getting up Tech II or a Heroes’ Hall, so I’m hoping for Martial Mastery again. EDIT: Nope! I’ve got the other Inverse Power Ninja, though.

Hmm, IPN isn’t great to deal with, but at least hopefully I can lay Vir in front and keep my tech 2 alive for next turn :slight_smile: He’d have to have like Reversal + Hook or use a sword rune to prevent it.

No Hyperion but Now! + Fargo + Tricycloid means I’ll have options next turn!
