My Thoughts

Tech 2 Ninjas, so I’ll want something to deal with Glorious Ninjas / Porcupines and I need some invisibility insurance. Tower and killing the backline IPN take care of both. I’m going to be hard-up for money, so Tri goes in Scav. I’ll also need something to deal with Max Rook, so better put an OS in the deck. I think I’m more likely to want my Now! than TD (Hyperion isn’t looking so hot against Porcupines and IPNS), so I’m workering TD. Not sure that’s the right choice, but I can always tech another one in (along with maybe Chronofixer? Or another OS?)

My Thoughts

Well if I can get a now, I can break tech 2! So that and TD seem good choice for techs

Got it! Nice! Today’s been a good day for draws. That should go great



#125

@charnel_mouse hope you had a great holiday weekend! Action is to you, in case you missed my post last week. No rush, just wanted to make sure you were aware :slight_smile:


#126

@FrozenStorm I did, hope you have too! I’ve seen your post, I’m just going to rather busy for a little while. I’ll put a turn up when I can :slight_smile:


#127

No sweat, I’m in no hurry :slight_smile:


#128

You summoned the second hero on the same turn you built a heroes hall. You have to wait a turn for add-ons and tech buildings to become active.


#129

I’d say we just play on, but I’d be fine with you replaying your previous turn and I’ll replay in kind if you want to @charnel_mouse


#130

I forgot to list my Tech II in the Buildings after I built it, so my turn’s fine. @FrozenStorm If you want to change yours knowing it’s up, go ahead (It’s Ninjitsu).


#131

Nope it looks like I knew that at the time lol, I did break break the tech 2 after all :slight_smile: Action back to you!


#132

Sorry, I’ve been doing a lot of spreadsheet/reading mistakes these last few games :confused: Doing a turn now!

Thoughts

What a lovely turn to come back to from a break. Well, I could use Snapback to get rid of Geiger and Vir/Prynn for a while, but the only other thing I could do that turn is summon Grave, and that’s asking for a board wipe. Geiger might be less of a threat maxed on the board anyway… Suiciding Setsuki here should make the Hyperion have to trade to get through the patrol unless another one shows up.


#134

Resist on a Flagbearer can make the Flagbearer an invalid target if your opponent manages to spend all his gold before using an ability that targets. If that was your plan, carry on :slight_smile:

And you have 1less float. 4g to get grave at lvl 3.


#135

I won’t mind if you want to take a scav or technician bonus for Flagbearer, @zhavier’s right that Lookout isn’t the best spot for him

My Thoughts

Continue breaking Tech 2 and keeping his board clear! Who needs workers anyway?

EDIT Now! can’t be done early, oh well, have to sacrifice some board position. In that light, need to tech OS in case he maxes rook. Also teching R&D to dig it up if needed, might worker that since Hyperions already do great for my card econ.



#136

You won’t be able to now the immortal regardless of the Flagbearer position.


#137

I will update my turn tomorrow morning (when I’m back at my PC) to properly account for Now! Targeting, suffice it to say, it will end up with all the same things dead on your side, 3 more damage on your base, and the immortal not there.

Resist will be relevant, so I will treat Flagbearer like it is in Lookout


#138

Okay @charnel_mouse I re-worked my turn, re-drew my rs draw and next hand (since I needed new techs in light of not having Immortal on the board), and decided to lay into the tech 1 instead of your base (hoping for a double tech kill next turn!)

Back to you


#139

I don’t think that first Hyperion trades, unless I missed something. Also after tricycloid kills grave, it would die from removing time rune and not be around for temporal distortion.


#140

I pinged the Hyperion with Setsuki to make sure he had to trade, unless I missed something…

Three damage from Grave, a rune on the Flagbearer, and a rune on the Tech I leaves one health, I think?
