okay. my coidex is about being well balanced, and responding to strong hero’s, board fodder, or strong units. however, the upgrade… ill have to watch out for Growth MOLAC here.

looks like his is basically a weaker version of Growth Engine.

With No One Drops on turn one, this will be tough. then again, his deteriorate and sacrifice the weak totally remove my 3 cost units from play, plus one units have no guarenteed survival.

Bro is as good as I can hope. Plus hero patrol will allow Bro to survive everything outside of STW. Ill patrol BRO in Scav to net some gold there. Bringing in Orpal to diswade him from hitting my hero as SQL, as negative runes suck.

Great, my only unit in hand is a skeleton, which would work fine as an elite patroller to protect a hero if his next hand doesn’t contain a Madman, Bombaster, Rambaster, Scorch, or Charge… which is impossible. I guess I could stick him as SQL and build a Tower, but I’m not sure the Tower could even survive that turn. Guess I’ll summon Rook and SQL him, it should take some resources to break through that. I’m not really interested in skeletons of any sort without Necromancy, anyway. Guess I’ll build a graveyard and start filling it with demons. If it gets taken by Nature Reclaims, it’s an even trade and I won’t have to worry about being locked out of one of my Legendary cards later.

rook and graveyard huh? well, ill use TB and SIckness for now. might need Nature reclaims later if GY gets out of hand.

ill need to save nature reclaims for MOLAC just in case, so holding off. In the meantime, red units cycling well at the moment, hero’s hall is an option if i redraw madman.

Thought about playing Jandra, but I’m not sure I could get good value out of her in this situation, whereas the Imp’s discard is unavoidable. I know I want Mythmaking, and between Galina and the Boulder, I’ll take the Boulder for its superior ability to absorb -1/-1 runes.

Since damage will stick on a max level hero, I’ll go ahead and lay into Orpal while there’s no other hero to get free levels from Rook’s death. I want Jandra to survive until next turn if possible, so I’ll clear the Dog first. I considered resummoning the Imp or playing the Boulder, but I want a unit that can attack and kill Orpal even if it gets a -1/-1 rune. I’ll put Vandy in the back line as a secondary threat and as a potential level recipient should Orpal be feeling heroic; hopefully she’ll be safe there.

well, max Orpal is a good hold against his flood of smaller uniits. he ended up trading into me. playing sickenss instead of Tiny Basilisk because it forces him to make another 2 for 1 trade.

Gorgan for more deathtouch and good deck cycling.

teching gorgan #2 and bloodlust to use them once orpal dies. gorgans are good for free hero levels.

disease is typically a slow death as far as win conditions go. i think ill need to tech lab into crashbarrows, combo using them with the gorgan’s. either that, or tech lab balance and bring out t rex.

Eww, -1/-1 runes… I’ll enable Tech II Growth to start clearing them off, but my primary spec is Strength for Morningstar Pass so I can build Tech Labs to swap between Demonology and Growth without damaging my base.

  1. Janda has only 2 attack, and cant kill Orpal as he is 2/2+A
  2. jandra would die from Orpal
  3. Vandy has a -1 rune on her as well.

Let me know when you’ve made the necessary updates.


#10

Jandra:
3/3 (base) + 2/2 (Mythmaking) - 1/1 (rune from Sickness) = 4/4 before combat
. - 2/2 (runes from combat) = 2/2 after combat (with 3 -1/-1 runes marked by [3-])

Vandy:
3/4 (base @ level 3) - 1/1 (rune from Sickness marked by [1-])

woops, my bad. forgot jandra was legendary, and vandy gets lvls from orpal.

Jandra didn’t have any runes at the end of my turn; she was 5/5 because of Mythmaking. But, I’ll still have to burn +1/+1 runes to destroy the 3 -1/-1 runes you put on my surviving units. I always put my runes in brackets: [1+] [3-] [2+, 4 time] etc.

#16

Fixed my turn to be legal. Instead of casting Soul Stone, I cast Sacrifice the Weak to clear the first Basilisk.


#17

ill GG it there man. nice use of mythmaking


#18

GG. I figured a tech 0 and 2 tech I Legendaries would be a strong opener, with 2 tech II and 3 tech III to follow up potentially. I was worried about your Balance spec because it has a lot of removal, including the dreaded Nature Reclaims, but I guess the strong early pressure was just too much to deal with.
