Good opportunity to trade out the Javelineer as worker fodder before playing the Graveyard. Dumping hand in the hopes of using Graveyard to recover hand size, will fetch in spells if necessary.

ForNecoatl

why no throw spier? Was it planned? (only discord idea i have for such yout turn)

For spectators

Yeah, I don’t want the Javelineer cluttering up the Graveyard, and I do want it to become a worker, so I’d rather take this opportunity to clear him off the board than take advantage of the javelin rune. I’m hoping the long-term advantages will outweight the short-term disadvantages.

Thoughts

Not great to draw neither Bargain here, but maybe Skeletal Archery will let me hold on for long enough.

3 gold to let Garth hit Vandy, then Haunt and a Skeleton can kill her off. That leaves 3 gold after worker, so I’d have to choose between Skeletal Archery and teching up. The Gargoyle makes that a no-brainer, as does my current deck. Unfortunately I’ll have to spend the remaining gold on maxbanding Garth for the heal, all the Skeleton archers in the world won’t save me if Garth gets sniped.

Alternatively, I could take out the Graveyard. I’d still need to midband Garth and kill the Haunt, so the Gargoyle can’t snipe him… but then Nekoatl can just maxband Vandy and wreck me with the “doomed” Gargoyle. Vandy kill it is.

For teching, I’m wondering whether it’s worth going for Death Rites, since it’s likely to be a while before I hit Tech II. Then a Bone Collector to keep the Skeletons coming. I expect to lose Archery to Assimilate, but I need to make use of it for the pressure while I can.

Well, well… an upgrade to Assimilate. In the meantime, though, I’m being contained rather well… but at least I have the infrastructure advantage. Removing it is a net loss for me, but I can’t allow it to remain in play. Since the number of heroes I want to use is rapidly increasing, I’ll go ahead and build a Hall for flexibility.

That Death Rites might have been premature given how long it’ll be before I draw it… but Nekoatl’s low on hand size too. Maybe it’s worth fishing for the Thieving Imp, maybe I’ll hit Assimilate.

My Tech II choices are iffy. I’d like Morningstar Pass if I’m planning on spamming Lich’s Bargain, but I’d also like Skeleton Lords, Finesse II holds my only anti-air options outside of Bird’s Nest. Not a comfortable decision to make. Maybe I just try to finish the game before we get there, and focus on Tech I. Although I’m not sure I like my choices there either. I guess I bring in Hooded Executioners, see if I can catch the Gargoyle when it’s not indestructible.

I’ll just ping the Glaxx with my Skeletons and see what they draw, I don’t think it’s worth killing it with Garth just yet.

Yikes! What to do about this? I guess just force trades and take advantage of the stronger economy? The alternative is to try and burst down his base, but that seems… unlikely to work… then again, with Gargoyles, Dark Pacts, and the Haunt, it might be possible? If I can live long enough, that is… I don’t have enough gold to replay and mirror the Glaxx and maintain gilded status, Tower is an option, but not an appealing one…

Card burn’s good against Vandy, right?

P2T5


Starting hand: 2

Summon Skeletons
Thieving Imp

Thoughts

Oof, Nekoatl took out more than I was expecting there. But the Gargoyle took out a Horror instead of Garth, I think I’m happy with that. If I trade the remaining Horror with the Gilded Glaxx, I can wipe his board, including the Graveyard, and have Garth at full health and a Skeleton standing before I play anything. Plus the Glaxx, the Gargoyle, and the Pestering Haunt end up in the discard just after a reshuffle! I think playing the Thieving Imp might be worth it here: even if Nekoatl’s teched in Dark Pact Vandy will be dead, so he’ll have to wait to summon her, then either draw it or pay to fetch it. In the meantime, it might force him to lose his economic advantage. Do I want to sacrifice a Skeleton to worker Sacrifice the Weak instead of Summon Skeletons? Probably not, eventually I’ll need to fight something big and Skeletons are going to be weak once Archery disappears.

OK, I need a plan to deal with Glaxxes later. Discord would help cut them down to size, and I’d feel a bit more comfortable bringing River out while I’m on board advantage. Two Step could help trade with it efficiently, but I’d need something bigger than a Skeleton for the first attack. I’ve got Hooded Executioners and a Bone Collector coming, though. Nimble Fencer + Star-Crossed Starlet gets some nice damage on a Glaxx if I can haste the latter with the former, although I’m already hurting for cards, so this isn’t reliable. Do I risk teching in a Nether Drain, and giving Garth’s levels to River so he can fetch something, at the risk of whiffing Death Rites? That lets me quickly prepare River to sideline / Appel Stomp Glaxx too. River’s pretty cheap to level anyway, though. Skeleton Lords would be nice, but I’m not getting to Tech II this turn without losing momentum. I think I go for Discord + Two Step, and hope I don’t draw the Two Step next turn while I’ve only got Skeletons ready to attack.

In general, I’d say no, as both Dark Pact and her midband fetch ability make card loss easier to deal with, however if you kill her, it’s a different story. BTW, you should have an extra skeleton, as Gargoyles don’t have long-range and I haven’t built a Tower.

Yeah… that’s a nice reduction in the threat from his side of the board, too bad my board had to be wiped out in the process, but that’s fair.

Rough discard, and rough time to get hit with a discard. I wasn’t expecting Truth II here, Retellers could let Nekoatl recover his hand size quickly even without Vandy around. I think my best bet is to manage my hand to get a good timing on Death Rites, but discard a card here makes that harder. I think I try drawing this turn anyway, the other cards I could draw are just so good.

Teching… wow, Whitestar Grappler is the only unit I have that can target. I guess I go for them, to snipe Macciatus / Reteller. Then I can tech Morningstar Pass later if I needed Lich’s Bargain again. DeGrey could destroy Mirrors, but they’d likely be copies of Gilded Glaxx anyway.

Thoughts

I’ve been expecting to lose Archery for a while. No big deal, I can use the Skeletons for chip damage or card draw. This isn’t a great turn to draw Death Rites, unfortunately. I could try and draw Discord or Two Step to crash through the Glaxx, or I could sideline it with River. Or I could do both and destroy some buildings. I’ll raise a Skeleton a draw with that, then I can still use the existing Skeleton to help kill the Glaxx if I don’t draw a spell. Teching in Two Step and Doubling Barbarbarian to try and keep stomping through. If I’m worried about card draw, I can add Appel Stomps.

Thoughts

Damn. OK, 3 attack kills Vir either way, then I’ve got 8 attack to clear Glaxx / buildings, and block afterwards. Clearing Glaxx would take 4 attack, thanks to Deteriorate, but if I want to destroy the Tech II I’d have just the Imp and the Bone Collector on defence.

  • Deteriorate Glaxx, kill with River and Imp (dies), Executioner trades with Vir, River heals, Garth destroys Tech II. Bone Collector and Skeleton to patrol against Vandy; River and 3 HP Garth in backline.

  • River sidelines Glaxx, Executioner trades with Vir, River maxbands, Imp destroys Tech II. Garth can hit Tech I, or kill Glaxx after Deteriorate. Bone Collector and Imp to patrol against Vandy; River, 1 HP Garth, and Thieving Imp in backline. Garth is badly wounded, but the Imp staying alive gives me more chance to have units alive for a good Two Step. I think I prefer this option: I’m transitioning to River spells anyway, the Skeleton count for card draw isn’t as good now, and if Garth dies he can come back for a fetch.

Blocking with Skeleton in front, so that the Bone Collector survives if Nekoatl doesn’t have Deteriorate / Sacrifice the Weak / Shadow Blade in hand.
