Max Garth to get a crashbarrow, kill tiny b and vir, zombie kills Sensei, horrors Fargo and Garth take down your base. GG WP!

Want to play another?


#23

Bah, I should’ve just started with Sickness instead of going for Assimilate so early.

I’m up for more! I’ll start with Black/Law.


#24

I’ll try white discipline finesse


#25

OK, let’s see how [Disease/Necromancy]/Law fares.

I’ll round out with Strength then. GL HF!

No point playing the Rogue with that Smoker out, so I’m holding off on heroes for now and just starting with the Imp. Imp in Elite would be nice to delay Grave, but Sensei’s Advice would let the Smoker trade with it. Actually, is that so bad? I’d lose 3g+1c at a cost of 2g+2c, plus the card that’s already been lost. Or he Hooks to kill for 1c, but he can do that anyway. No, he can just midband to survive, right? I’ll just stick to SQL.

Not sure what to expect here. I know FrozenStorm’s deck did really well last tournament, but I didn’t read the matches too closely. Lots of Fencers. No Rook for early Birds, I imagine he’ll be taking River as a secondary hero. Let’s wait and see.

Do I go for the Graveyard or not? I’d be limiting to adding a hero to the patrol, if so. That’s 9 attack needed to destroy it, there’s currently 4, so 5 more needed from midbanding Grave, Sensei’s Advice, Grappling Hook, and Nimble Fencers. Cheapest way is Nimble Fencer, boost it with Sensei to kill Imp, Smoker and another Fencers to kill my hero, then midbanded Grave destroys the Graveyard, total cost 4 gold and all attackers survive. I don’t think I can risk it.

I’m thinking Garth, Skeleton Javelineer, and a Skeleton. For tech options, I probably units with good stats. No point to Tax Collector here. That limits me to my Black units. Plague Spitter might be nice to keep Grave under control, Bone Collector’s nice if I get to do attack later. Hooded Executioner scales nicely later in the game, but I’m expecting Tech II Strength or Finesse, which both would spit out reasonably cheap units that he’d boost-kill at cost parity or worse.

What do I want to do for Tech II? Disease + Law opens up an interesting option where I insure Abominations, and shoot for Tech III for Gryphons. There’s something similar with Skeleton Lords, but Discord makes that far too risky to build up. If I want small buffer units, I’d probably be better off using Lich’s Bargain. OK, I’ll plan to go with Lich’s Bargain into Abominations with Insurance. And Lich’s Bargain only costs 2, so I could play it next turn and still afford to Tech up first. The worker loss would prevent a really quick Tech III, but would allow easy maxing of Garth for Death Rites. Sounds like a decent plan, let’s see if it survives contact. One Lich’s Bargain now, or two? I really need to draw one next turn, I’ll risk two.

Garth is easy to mess with via Discord, so we’ll tech one of those (I get the feeling he wants to go Disease t2 rush?) and hopefully lay Birds + get aggro with heroes next turn. Safe Attacking nets me a good trade right now and is good for me in general so we’ll go with that.

Ugh these whiffs!!!

Hmm, I hadn’t noticed the early Heroes’ Hall. He’s gone for Rook over River, though, so no Discord to worry about. Thunderclap’s pretty dangerous here, though, and Safe Attacking’s bad enough. I might need to Bargain again next turn. Full steam ahead on Tech II plan for now. Holding one Abomination in codex in case I need to fetch Uh, Garth can’t fetch Abominations. Fetching a Gorgon could be handy, if the Horror lets me maxband Garth cheaply.

wow, he’s just going to let me set up earthquake for free? sure, okay, take the kill on Garth, ping the tech 2, and draw 64% into it next turn? You bet, bring it on :slight_smile: I’ll happily give up Grave levels for that (I want River anyway XD)

And I hit both lol… Not ideal but still plenty fine, he’s probably got a dead LB in hand and is only 28% to have drawn a tech 2. I’ll gladly take those odds and take him down to 7 base hp and no buildings XD

Um. Double Nether Drain’s my only chance to stop an instant Earthquake win. I can sacrifice the Horror and the Imp to kill Grave and the Sparring Partner, so get a hero and a Heroes’ Hall to prevent being locked out of Garth. Actually, keep the Imp in patrol so Rook can’t just walk past and destroy Tech II while he waits for an Earthquake. I can get Orpal, pay 1 to midband, then put a Tower behind, and that’s just enough health to require Rook or a card play to get the Orpal kill. Still not hopeful.

Yea that’s a nice maxband play to make but I still own the board and the sky, I’ll tech the other Two Step for insta-win birds, and a Vines to help Rook contribute to killin’ the base. Earthquake ends it if I draw that too, maybe I shouldn’t have workered the other one lol…



#37

GG, nothing I can play from my hand, well played! Up for another if you are.

It feels like I’m still hanging myself in a lot of games, which is frustrating. Game 2 I should have patrolled with the Horror, and I didn’t notice the early Hall. Game 1 I guess I should have topdecked the Assimilate instead of playing it as soon as Vir arrived, and gotten some more patrollers down, plus I hadn’t been thinking about Lich’s Bargain.


#38

I’m game for another. I was surprised you didn’t patrol horror.

How about I try red + anarchy this game


#39

Yeah, I blanked on Rook’s midband, thought Garth was safer.

Sounds good, I’ll go Black/Growth/Strength.

Thoughts

Main worry here is a Miracle Grow deck. Anarchy works with Growth more than it does with Strength, so the easiest thing to do is take Growth myself. While I’m at it, I’ll take Black + Strength, and threaten a Legendary rush.


#40

I’ll take blood and finesse
