Casual: Codex Newb Finesse/Feral/Growth vs Ascending Prime [Bashing]/Fire/Anarchy


#17

@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.


#21

Youre right about the Blooming ancient, ill have to leave him with both runes and adjust my turn, see edit above.

as for the teching. the way i see it in the rulebook is, “you don’t have to committ to your teching decision until the beginning of your next turn,” means that you ‘tech’ at the start of your turn. the rulebook also says that all of the selection of two cards at the end of your turn is only for purposes of advancing the game more quickly. it doesnt actually specify that the workers are determined at the end of your turn.

however, i see your point; it’s definitely ambiguous. im fine if you remove those extra techs.

edit, per below. seems like you would worker.


#22

From the Rules Questions Thread:

(Reminder in case one of you isn’t aware; sharpo is the official rules manager for Codex, so if he says “I think it’s this way,” that means it is that way unless Sirlin specifically steps in to say otherwise.)


#23

Thanks @Hobusu, that directly answers the question. If you
have insight on my removing rune Q that would be cool too.
Another use-case, beyond the flagbearer one we encountered, is
that, if giving away each rune is a seperate event, blooming
elms / drill-sgts could never give away runes which were “keeping
them alive”, b/c the runes need to come off one-by-one
and once they reach 0 HP all further runes poof.

Just to call it out, I edit the previous turn to tech cards
so I should be caught up now.

#24

I don’t know if there’s an official ruling on it, but the runes from Blooming Ancient should all be redirected to your Flagbearer for the reasons you gave. If you want an official ruling you can tag sharpobject or (maybe even better) ask either in the Rules Questions Thread or on Discord.

Edit: @ascendingPrime, I should have mentioned that you might want to search the Rules Questions Thread to see if that’s already been answered there before asking – if you use the Search button at the top of the screen while in that thread, you should have the option to limit searches to it. Flagbearer is the key word I’d search for, since there have been lots of questions around Blooming Ancient for other issues.


#25

TY - still learning my way around this cyber space, but I will definitely follow up on that.


#26

Hmm, I tried cntrl - f on the page and the spreadsheets for drill-sgt and blooming ancient.

TY, I will try that now.

#28

@ascendingPrime why do u keep calling Jaina Jana? just curious :stuck_out_tongue:

As for the flagbearer, u must target him (if he is a valid target). So ancient and sarge are like: remove X and target Y: -> Y gains said rune. Even if u have 100 runes, u always have only 1 target, hence all 100 runes would be forced on flagb. Thunderclap would avoid it, since flagb costs>2. Sickness would put a rune on flagb cuz forced, and the other on a hero/unit of ur choice.
NB: if flagb was on looky, after spending all ur gold, u could move ur runes freely, cuz without gold flagb would be no longer a valid target, since u could not afford the looky cost. So beware where u put it @codexnewb


#29

TY for the rune xfr confirmation Legion. Also, for what it is worth,
in my head it is always pronounced jAna -with a hard “a”.
Trouble is I never did hooked-on-phonics and don’t play scrable as a reslut.

That was a pretty awful turn. I want to say bad draws (I finally get sanitorium
and I only have 1 techII unit in hand; also getting arrow right after jaina
had just died is unfortunate)… but that begs the question, “why weren’t you
doing a better job to manage your deck”?

Doing some monday-morning quaterbacking, the other idea I had for last turn was

  • bricktheives still trade

  • arrow + flagbearer into ancient to kill it. …I shyed away b/c I thought the
    pin between steamtank and flagbearer was strong enough and tiger seemed the bigger
    threat. This resulted in me taking (7 + 6) damage instead of (5 + 2). Furthermore
    this would have starved CN of another card which can only help my case. A clear
    misplay, and I have no one to blame but myself b/c I love this exact strat on drill-sgt.

  • another mistake (maybe?) is teching boot instead of detonate. My thought was
    boot for centuar is an even trade normally, and a win if the centuar has runes.
    But this thinking competely overlooked the possibility of blooming elm.

At this point (just eyeballing it) it might be lethal (I count 14dam showing,
and I have 14 base + 5 blocking) My one saving grace would be providing such
a target rich environment that the atk get distributed.

huge decision time. do i break his tech 3, or his tower and tech 2. the tech three would leave me wide open to the sanitorium dropping open season on my, and leaving the tower costs me blooming elm.

leaving teh tech three with the hope he doesnt have PGS. i think i backed myself into this corner either way. choice between death by sanitorium and death by PGS dont sound like i have much room to shift blame.

#31

Ya, I’m having a blast. It is a personal goal of mine to get a sanitorium in
play, so even though it didn’t do a lot I’m pleased & still feel like I unlocked
an achievement.

Let me know if you want to do a 2nd game after this, same decks and trade first player.
I usually try to play games in “sets” like that because P1 and P2 can be very
different and I have this bias that a good deck should be able to handle both.

All kinds of stuff is racing through my head right now (apple-stom, feral strike)
but I think I might be over thinking it. 7dam to main this turn, and set myself
up for an arrow finisher in case the gunship dies.

I’m down to swap P1 P2 and run it back.

GG - that was a fantastic game. I kept thinking that you would starve yourself
going down to zero cards as often as you did, but it never seemed to happen.

Also bricktheif is fantastic! If you ever have a max-band drak you can get a
hasted frenzy bricktheif: 2 building dam + 3atk damage + 2 building heal, a
7 point swing for a 2.g T0 play! I was hoping for something similar w/ sanitorium
(2+2+2 for 0.5-g play) but it didn’t live long enough for me to pull it off.

  • detonate + detonate :: <- trying an early cheese, see how it goes
  • lobba + lobba
  • boot + sharks
  • monkey + anarchy
  • monkey + Burning Volley / lizzo

trying an early game cheese, and then lean really heavy into haste.
My bail-out plan is anarchy in case I can’t keep the board clear
(b/c I should bounce back faster from a wipe)
