[Casual] charnel_mouse [Necromancy]/Finesse/Strength vs. FrozenStorm [Necromancy]/Blood/Fire

GLHF @FrozenStorm! Don’t think I’ve faced your deck before, so this should be interesting.

P1T1

Starting hand: 5

Skeleton Javelineer
Poisonblade Rogue
Thieving Imp
Jandra, the Negator
Deteriorate

Thoughts

I can open with hero + Javelineer or Poisonblade Rogue + Javelineer. The former’s the more standard opening. The latter discourages blocking with a hero, especially Rook, but is vulnerable to Deteriorate. Opening with my own Rook isn’t as good against those opposing heroes early on, and Garth is too slow. So maybe I start with River this turn or the next. No good 2-cost unit to play next turn, but if I don’t want the Graveyard I could midband River for a sideline instead, maybe? At the moment the plan is Two Step + Nimble Fencer, but if things go badly I go for Lich’s Bargain.

Scavenger sounds good, thanks. I think I’m already showing my inexperience with Black/River in my opener here.

Hmm, maybe River was a mistake. Still, midband River in Squad Leader is reasonable on defence here, and Pestering Haunt behind might be a decent deterrent. I’ll still go for Two Step + Fencer, then if River dies I can bring out Garth to stall a bit with Skeletons.

My Thoughts

Yeah with this whiff, best to tech 2 rush. Discord is still a possibility, discord + Fencer definitely possible, but luckily the scav gold lets me take a shot w/ Imp. Hopefully that #3 of 4 roll was fruitful. Patrolling Garth techn, b/c if I whiff the crashbarrow I either want to be able to LB or draw the barrow. This should mean either way, I have something productive to do next turn…

Fine to trade off Garth for Barrow, tempting to go double but actually with Midband Drakk I can get pretty similar damage down. Breaking the tech1 to prevent hasty buggers, Grabbing Recruiter and Bugblatter, should be able to max Drakk and utilize one of those next turn

On mobile but I have lethal, crashbarrow kills Rook + fencer (Max Drakk), bug blatter hasted, Deteriorate elite, Drakk takes scav, haunt takes looky, then imp + skeles + bug kill your base.

GG WP! Want to run it back?
