I want 6 gold next turn to get Jandra down, so need to float 1 gold now. Looks like I’m just playing a hero and Haunt, I guess Vandy for a Soul Stone.

Bummer not to get Brogre, but this was always going to be a little tough to deal with. I expect Mythmaking to be the direction for him, and with no upgrade hate that will be a little challenging to deal with. Kidnapping will be helpful most likely. We’ll see how it goes!

I’m wondering whether to just run Vandy into the Bombaster. If I don’t, Vandy probably gets killed on the next turn. I’ll just need to delay playing Soul Stone. Do I want to tech in Birds instead, or just get going with legendary techs? Probably the Boulder, I could be facing a lot of damage on Turn 3 if FrozenStorm opens with River.

Perhaps it will be easier to just utilize Drakk midband + as many attackers as I can muster. I’m going to leave myself slightly vulnerable to Mythmaking + Deteriorate but I’ll risk that, nbd. Zane can always bring the pain right back.

FrozenStorm can just afford two Fencers, River, and Two Step. That’s a total of 8 damage, so my Boulder would go down if it isn’t is SQL, and can’t kill a stepped Fencer either way. I don’t think maxband Zane can let him top that. I might still want to put the Boulder in Elite, then it can kill non-stepped Fencers, and if they are stepped I have a good chance to retaliate with Jandra while her death ability has no effect.

Okay I want Jandra outta here. He’ll likely be trying to get a Soul Stone on her, let’s hope I can sneak a monkey on her before that happens.

You should have a deck of 3 to draw from before reshuffling, I think? Or is this shorthand?

Hmm, he’s probably trying to reach Jandra with a Monkey. However, I can wipe his board again to prevent an easy Two Step, and put up a Tower and a Graveyard, if I delay Tech II, so Jandra would come straight back again. I might want to patrol Vandy in front, otherwise she’s an easy alternative target, but I definitely want the Boulder in Technician. Patrolling Vandy lets maxband Zane have some shenanigans, but that’s all of FrozenStorm’s gold after worker. If I just patrol the Boulder, he can move it but can’t kill it. Midband Drakk + Monkey is more of a problem against Vandy. I think I just patrol the Boulder, he’s already got to choose between Jandra and the Graveyard if he can get through.

Teching in two Gargoyles in preparation for Gunships.

EDIT: Oh, right, Kidnapping. That doesn’t help him though: if he Kidnaps the Boulder it goes down to 0 attack, and if he Kidnaps Jandra she and the Boulder die immediately, not the cheapest way for him to do that but it is pretty card-efficient. He could also Kidnap the Boulder just to move it out the way and kill Jandra, but then the Boulder survives.

Well, there’s one Monkey. I need to keep an eye out for the other one, but with a Soul Stone in hand I think I’m out of danger for one turn. Only teching one Pact to bring DeGrey into the deck faster for more offense, if I don’t draw into Pact I can midband Vandy and fetch it.

This works out much better with him teching up… Especially with me techn-ing the Steam Tank. Kidnapping + Steam Tank + kill Vandy, next turn I can tech up and he’s on permanent Gunship alert. That works to my advantage nicely



Rules Questions thread
#53

It goes to my Graveyard, looks right otherwise. EDIT: Wait, no, you’re right, sorry. Well, that could be a problem.


#54

I’m asking in the Rules Thread b/c I’m not 100% certain. It’s a little ambiguous b/c Graveyard reads “A unit of yours”. The unit is owned by you, but controlled by me for the duration of Kidnapping. Kidnapping’s clarification makes the most specific instruction (“If it dies during your turn, it goes to opponent’s discard”), but I can see that being overruled by “a unit of yours” meaning “a unit you own”.


#55

EricF has an old reply saying it goes to discard, which would be consistent with “your” referring to the controller rather than the owner on other cards. But I’ll wait and see.


#56

Oh? Where is that? I searched the rules thread for kidnapping + graveyard but didn’t find any previous discussion

Discard makes sense, so I’ll play on.

This is bad, I really needed the card draw from Technician or Vandy. Hitting the Tank with Jandra leaves her with 3 health and ripe for a Monkey or a Kidnapping, but Kidnapping will kill her anyway since she’d attack into my tower with 2 health. Galina and the Gargoyle leave me with 6 pre-worker, maybe I just tech up now? Or I could block up with maxband Argagarg or midband Rook. The latter is less vulnerable to Jandra being killed, the former helps stop Fencers and Zane from reaching the back line. Wisp and Water Elemental would die if I play DeGrey, but I should be able to get some damage in with them before then. I think I’m more worried about Fencers, leaving a unit alive allows for an easier Two Step.

Delaying Morningstar Pass in favour of Dinosize, I really need an attack on FrozenStorm’s buildings before I completely run out of steam.

Woof that’s a lot of units… I think I want at least one unit gone and I might as well trade off the Steam Tank so I can replay it. He’ll almost certainly take the Tech 3, so I better tech some stuff to help. The other Steam Tank and a Discord ought to help clear off the board

That worked out OK. Time to retaliate? I’m facing 7 health with at least 9 attack if I don’t get Jandra killed in the process. Activate the Gargoyle, and that’s 5 extra attack to take down the Tech III. Deteriorate gets another, and I could also maxband Vandy to doom something. That’s 3 extra damage, not enough. The Deteriorate lets me keep everything alive, though.

Do I maxband Vandy, or play DeGrey? The latter gets the Elemental and Wisp killed, so swapping a 0/1 and a 3/3 for a 6/5. If Wisp and Galina survive, I get extra income and am guaranteed Dark Pact in hand, and Stampede is better if I draw into that. Tough choice, but I think I want a larger hand size here. Ah, but maxbanding Vandy means I need to Doom something, so I lose the Wisp but do 2 damage to the Tech II now. I can live with that. Or I could a worker and do both… No, I’m reshuffling next turn so now’s a good time to stop teching.
