My Thoughts

I’m obviously laying the Void Star, but on top of that I have two options, from what I see:

  1. Grave, Hook Sets to elite, Arg + Advice my Sensei to kill Sets, max Arg for WE. This is great for overall board control, but leaves me vulnerable to Fairie Dragon blessing Tiny B and losing my Void Star. That would be quite sad, but I could likely recover with Grave and WE at the ready.
  2. Maxband Arg, Hook sets to wherever, Sensei buffs Arg to trade with Tiny B. I give two levels to Sets, but I am certain to own the skies. This feels like the guaranteed high-floor plan, but lower ceiling than if he isn’t holding Fairies. I also make the SotP dead for next turn, which is a bummer.

I’d be about 99% sure he teched at least one Fairie, 70% he teched two of them. Perhaps the third option is to start aiming for tech 3? Then I can’t take either kill, but maybe that’s the right call? I’m now realizing the Dragons can also target my tech 2s, which is a pretty bad thing…

I think the more I look at it, the more 2x Nebula and rush tech 3 makes the most sense… Let’s do that

Nice, I got the Xenostalker, that’s the perfect accompanying drop for teching up.

My Thoughts

Woah no Dragons! But why do I always think Xenostalker costs 3 and not 4??? Ugh. Okay, no problem, I got scavenger gold… but he has two Tiny Bs at the ready, so whatever sits on the ground will be terminated. He also got a tower…? Well, I actually think the best lay here is Savior Monk, trade WE and Sets, buff Void to kill Gemscout and tech 2, and tech up. Puts me on tech 3 while he’s on tech 1. I spose I could throw Vir out as a sacrificial blocker / get rid of a Tiny B dude also… Does floating the gold help me significantly next turn? I guess I’m drawing into SotP + Nebula, and having 12 gives me just enough for that (provided I attack with VS / whatever I’m SotP-ing before laying nebula)… Also drawing into the other VS, so I’d want at least 12 for that also… Okay lets just float. Teching Twins and Reversal just to round the deck out, but I think I’m pretty set


lol, you’re just too good frozenstorm. but im learning a lot i guess.

not much to do.

Hahaha that’s very flattering, thanks :slight_smile: I’ve logged quite a few games, so I hope I’ve learned a few things. I’d still bet on Eric or Zhav against me in a best of 5, and Dreamfire has certainly gotten my number more than a few times in tournaments so I think our match would be pretty even money.

I was a little curious why you would put Sets in Elite there, at least backline I have to pay for the pleasure of taking her out.

Well sad as it is to skip Nebula, I do not want to get chained down on Moment’s Peace. So we’ll wait a turn on that, get the other Void Star out, and let the tech 2 drop (not that important), so long as next turn we get to attack. If he’s unable to take down a Void Star (he has to have a Dragon by now right?), then I can just end woo

Hmph didn’t split the nebulas, that’s a bummer. If Vir goes down though I do get to Rambasa along with nebula, so that’s a plus I guess

Okay, time to fire up the laser cannons and cloaking devices. Pairing with Rambasas would be great, however that does leave an opening for sets to suicide… Arg would better almost just to pin Vandy and Sets to the board. Yea okay, Arg + float 2 I spose. Also going to tech Omegacrons to help finish this damn game…


at this point, im jsut trying to see how long i can draw this out. that’s my small little victory.

hmmm, i dont think omegacron uses the tower detection because it doesnt actually need to stealth by anything.

Naw, afraid it does work that way. Same reason Meta Midori is so terrifying, he gets to fly over blockers and use up the tower.

Either way though, Nebula can blow up one Dragon and the other gets overpowed and I still have lethal that way

ahh, got it. ive definitely been overruled the other way at some point then. no worries either way though.

necro balance fire was the first deck i ever played against on the forum. this deck can really swing some hasty flying power. feather runed lobbers for example. also BC’s, and mid-bandori are a thing as well.

as for him, past might make the most sense. but i think he’ll need tech three eventually.

if i were him, id go stewardess all day. no real downside other than cost. lobbers wont help much against them, being 3+A in SQL.

  1. PH kills BI, STW kills TD, mid Garth, kill Cal, Maxband Garth, skip tech 1. Probably tech in BC’s. Vulnerable to Origin story, not great baord position, wastes Garth maxband, skip tech 1

  2. archery, garth out front. he can either mid cal to kill garth, or drop double units, but not both. ill be dealing with max Cal and (most likely) stewardess after that.

As much as the trade-offs hurt, i think option 1 is better. regarding what to tech, id rather go with BC’s and just hope i dont draw them both. probably go with archery next turn, make a skeleton, etc… expecting him to drop a hero out front.

"

This is weird I know, but Garth’s maxband is for tech 1 or 2 only. Jav does not qualify, so you are effectively fizzling the maxband in this way.

You could alternatively float 1 and leave him on lvl 6, or make a regular old garden variety skeleton?
