It’ll be tight for sure… Note your Giga is on 5hp not 6, it still has to take tower damage as well :stuck_out_tongue:

Well let’s hope that he doesn’t have Ferocity. I’ll need to take Cala out quickly if I’m going to have a shot…

well, that flagbearer is a solid response. now ay to get through. i think i just need to wall up. he still has fencers and maestro’s in his deck. possible martial mastery next turn, but he has 2 cards in deck all the same. i think i SHOULD be okay.

tempted to drop verdant tree, but i REALLY need something here on this next draw. there are 5 cards that help me, 12 in the deck. ONly 1 ideal card (ferocity).

you have got to be shitting me? those 4 cards huh? okay, ill take it, but might hurt me moving forward.

This is going to be really tight… did you draw a Ferocity?

Continue to hope no ferocity, Feral Strike is still a problem (Moss Ancients bring stealthy squirrels) but hopefully we can beat it… Grabbing another Starlet and Martial Mastery to help move cycles along


turn in progress.

also, im still seeing cards in your discard. can you double check that your cycle is updated?

Fixed, 9 in deck 3 in hand none in discard. Sorry about that!

no worries!

  1. FS x2 GN, trade away, break tech 1/2, patrol sets.
    Pro - clear board and no NF/SCS/GG/Mae.
    Con - BM on the field SS Sets, and I can’t get through max Orpal/River.

  2. x2 MA, 6 squirrels
    Pro - break tech 1, force him to attack, Great wall.
    Con - he has all tech’s and freedom to just unload on me.

  3. i need him to whiff as hard as i did. it’s my only shot. although, this game ia WAY more excitign than i riginally thought. proud of myself.

I guess Feral Strike does that too…

My Thoughts

Well having two tech buildings busted isn’t great, but drawing TM on the technician was highly helpful. I think it’s better to kill Cala, as I don’t’ want Feral Strike bringing in really bad nasties. Grave has lots of health so he’ll be able to hit back… but I suppose maxband Orpal can handle that and hit back with serious crippling. Hopefully I draw more tech 1 and less tech 2 next turn!

Oh seriously excellent draw :slight_smile:


okay, ill just GG it there. ran out of steam, don’t see a way forward.

phew GG WP! Barely survived, that tower paid itself back in spades!

P1 back to you, I’ll peek around at what things were looking like from your perspective!

yeah, that last turn was a tough decision. i dont think it mattered either way though.

Wait a minute wait a minute… you had THAT in your hand, and you boosted for Ninjas???

Why wouldn’t you play

  • Feral Strike, play ancients directly (10)
  • Ferocity (8)
  • Maxband Grave (2)
  • 1 Squirrel uses up tower detect and rams 1hp off Starlet (b/c armor piercing)
  • Two squirrels sneak in to kill Flagbearer
  • Grave hucks his sword at Blademaster
  • Remaining 3 Squirrels ping my tower to 1hp
  • Sets (0)

And you sit two Swift Striking Moss Ancients + a swift striking MPM in patrol, ready to completely bulldose me next turn???

That’s a crazy fever dream of a hand!! Pay 4 to lay two moss ancients???

lol, dude, totally forgot that feral strike lets you elect to pay 4 to drop two units from hand. what a loss on my part. note to self, re-read the cards that you think you know so well.

not much to do about it now.

Well other than clearly count that as a W for you! That was a game-ending hand! I can’t take credit for a W against that :wink:

lol, ill take it. good to note moving forward with feral. hadnt thought to use it strictly as a 4 gold card to drop 2 heavy hitters.

going the discipline / hero's route. another SP and TG. both good options whether i tech 2 or HH.

Staking tiger since she's invisible. just let him trade into me. building the hero's hall now since i can. will also distract him away from my tech 2, give me options.

ill need Sets to help me cycle through my deck on the next reshuffle. but

well, i think that i need to get at that orpal and win the gold trade here. helps a lto as P1. fortunate for me he whiffed.

ill pivot from the plan and bring out grave since he has a strong board presence than Sets. she can wait until next turn. hopefully get one TG.
