Thoughts

CN

So when I seen modified green in the past, it is usually to bring in finness
w/ T2 Balance to give mimics haste. Since balance isn’t in the mix, that
can’t happen here. At a guess, I’m thinking a 2-step strat on feral-T1,
maybe with a allies+stamped closer. Alt maybe a neutral-starter, w/ blooming?

Me

So the thought process here is that this combo can swing real fast
or real slow and there is also an interesting magic angle.

Fast
Zane(+troq), lobba+boot+wrecking-ball+chaos-mirror+calypso, a heros-hall
branch into T2 (maurder+monkey+lizzo), or spell-gold-sinks (smash+sharks)

Slow
Troq, ironman, branch into rhino or steam tank
followed by (lizzo+sanitorium), or (eggship+reaper), or T3 (both duck and gunhsip are solid)

Magic
Open-hero, ironman+calypso, boot/wrecking-ball/fire-spells/(?)chaos-mirror,
roll into fire T2 w/ bamstamper

I think I’d like to see if sanitorium can work, so game plan is…

  1. start w/ troq, ironmen, tower, into tank (prioritize gold into blocking health)
  2. behind wall of health set-up sanatorium (prob take a dbl or triple drop)
    3.a) use card efficiency of sanitorium + lizzo to recover hand
    3.b) use gold efficiency of sanitorium to pour money into expensive heros / spells
  3. calypso + spells to clear patrolers (b/c of course there will be a tower)

(tentative tech plan; subject to change)
ironman + calypso
ironman + tank
lizzo + sharks / boot / arrow / wrecking-b / ember / mirror
lizzo + sanitorium
~reaper + ~bampstamper/firebird

well, green vs red is all about getting red to trade 2 for 1 against green. imagine it is similar here. ill tech in centaurs for now, and see if two step is a good options moving forward after that.

great split with 1 cost units in turn 1 and 2 hands. can use that to clear his board and patrol cheaply, whille maybe healing Cal turn by turn.

blooming cal instead of hero’s hall, using her as a main body,and threat of

Hmm, original plan had been a helpful turtle but I wasn’t expecting a dbl. drop
w/ a T0 hand. The best I can figure is this means CN plans to skip T1 and rush T2?

The tower ensures anyone atk messenger dies. Wither is still an option, but seems
a waste. Either way, I don’t think my T1 is in danger w/ Troq as backup. W/ 2
ironmen in hand, plan on a dbl drop next turn and T2 turn after.

probably delaying tech 2, especially if he unloads on my right now. cal’s stealth not an option anymore, but my strong tech 1’s should do the trick for a while.

to be mindful of feral-strike, but at T1 that isn’t really an issue yet.

based on draw can go several different ways, suicide Cal to swap in river two step would be ideal, then bring cal back later.

need to be aggressive at this point given he’ll build tech 2 next turn. centaur should help to clear through though. lets see what i draw.

looks like im going with ferocity. need to get value out of centaurs to win this. multiple attacks and turns.

given the centuars, boot is technically more efficient as a spell,
however arrow is much more flexible. Not doing sharks b/c I want to
be able to shoot over the patrol.

I’m feeling the preasure right now, but I keep telling myself that
CN has done two dbl. drops so far. 13dam showing, I have 10 health blocking;
tower blocks ferns.

  • Technically any 2 of bloom/spark/wither could break through,
    but that would mean a skipped worker or 0 discard which is prob an over extension(?)
  • Another play would be sacrifice cali into ironman, summon arg, dino-size

For me, assuming turtle dies (10g) and T2 lives, I can jana + tank + arrow + worker

So there was a choice flamearrow on cali (only one w/out resist) or ironman.
In the end, I figured taking 5atk off the board was better than adding 4 health
to it.

Clearly going against a hard T1 build. W/ CN having a zero discard last turn
I think I’ve basically weathered the storm at this point.

My board can be cleared w/ a couple damage sneaking through, but my T2 should
only be at risk from squirel (on tank) or dinosize. But if we ever get to a
reset board state I have zane loaded and ready.

Next turn I start to preassure w/ lizzo, and see if we can get a sanitorium up.

win condition is getting at his techs. although i have a lead it is very slim.

hero’s hall is for when he withers and kills both my centaurs.

Hey @codexnewb, can you double ck your gold count. I have 1 + 2 + 2 + 4 + 2 = 11 (worker, river, 2-step, T2, h-h). Easy fix is to drop the heros-hall.

1 Like

yeah, he forgot to pay 2 step.

Sorry! edited and fixed it.

@ascendingPrime

No worries codex, it happens to everyone. Last game I miss
counted my gold b/c of building-inspector. Ended
up needing to take a card back and it really threw me.
Just shake it off -your fine.

well that was unexpected. Hope I can make it an over-extension though.

Kind of funny I didn’t actually notice the gold missing though until I was doing these stats -lol.

hmmmm, need a good draw this next turn. he can trade into me, but this is not looking good. i delayed tech 2 too long. and growth was a bad choice.

@Legion - ck me if I’m wrong, but I believe I don’t need to tech b/c
at the end of my turn I had 10 workers. This is true even if one of my
workers is trashed on my opponents turn.

EDIT - added tech due to uncertainty of rules.

wisp should have 0, you’re good there.

as for teching, i believe you do need to tech, because you tech cards in the beginning of your turn. if you dont have 10 workers at the beginning of your turn, you must tech 2 cards.

edit: since i cant move runes due to flagbearer, left runes with BA, and updated patrol.

Hey Codex,

I’m happy to tech to keep the game moving, but can you tell me where you found this ruling? I couldn’t find anything about this in the QA, and in the main rule book (pg.6) it says,

Tech
Pick two cards from your codex to set aside. They’ll go face down into your discard pile just before your next turn starts.

You can either choose two copies of the same card or two different cards. Your opponent doesn’t need to wait for you to decide; they can start taking their turn as soon as you end your main phase. You don’t have to commit to your teching decision until the start of your following turn, but your game will go faster if you figure out your plan while the opponent takes their turn.

Teching two cards per turn is mandatory until you have 10 workers. At that point, you can tech 0, 1, or 2 cards. (Usually 0 is a good idea so you don’t bloat your deck.)

I’m curious to hear what the official ruling is, the way I parse it

  • The determination of whether a tech is mandatory or optional is at the end of my turn
  • The determination of the specific cards added (and how many if it is optional) is done before the start of my following turn.

Also, I believe my my flagbearer is the only valid target for the runes from your Blooming Ancient. Another one of those open questions is whether each “remove rune” counts as a separate event (in which case all runes would need to target flagbearer), or if multiple runes can be removed as a single event (in which case only one rune needs to target flagbearer). I lean towards the former position b/c the card reads

Remove a +1/+1 rune

as the “trigger”, but I’m curious to hear the official ruling.
