Drawing my recent techs would be bad right now, I’ll just get the Tower down to stop demon Vandy walking past everything, and get the Water Elemental out.

I could ace the WE but I think the better play is simply to wall and tech up. He has no haste available, I’ll just bring Garth + a skeleton out and continue the gambit.

Thoughts

Spirit of the Panda comes out in time to afford Tech II and some defenders, even if I can’t get the Bear out then hopefully I can make it a struggle for FrozenStorm to destroy both the Tree and my Tech II, and not get hit back. If I can start getting Tech II units rolling out, I might be able to deal with Metamorphosis, but Finesse will still be a massive problem. Ferocity might help out. If I tech more I might want another Ferocity, maybe a Gigadon, worker out the Birds - I’ll need to focus on ground defenders against both Metamorphosis and fetched Virtuosos.


#84

I’m on phone but tldr of my turn will be Haunt pings base and dies, River out, Meta from hand, Garth fetches Guide, Garth kills SQL, vandy breaks tech 2, fencer from graveyard trades with WE.

Guide in SQL, River in techn


#85

About as expected… With the Verdant Tree still up, my Tech II will go straight back up, you fine with that?


#86

Nope lol… I’ll break the tower instead with fencer, and have vandy limp away from the WE kill on 1hp

Unless I draw into a great Ferocity turn, that’s game.


#89

On phone but I have lethal. Guide from hand + maestro + fencer

Limping Fencer hits SQL, revives and finishes him, vandy kills arg ss MP, that leaves Garth, River, fencer and guide to deal 21. GG WP!

Id play another if ya wanna, thoughts?


#90

GG WP! Wasn’t sure what to tech after the Rook kill, maybe I should have teched in another Spirit of the Panda or a Ferocity instead of one of the techs on Turn 4.

I’m up for another.


#91

I was fearing dinosize most.

Am I up for p2? I’ll try purple peace again


#92

I wasn’t going to get units down in time to use it before Meta helped you keep my board clear, and it’s not that great on Water Elemental. I should probably just have put Argagarg in front and accepted him dying, so the units behind survived and he could summon again.

I’ll go for Neutral/Balance/Strength.


#93

Truth + finesse to round me out


#94

I’ll give Fire a go, will put up a turn when I can.

Thoughts

Choice was between Jaina’s 4-cost spell and Kidnapping to deal with Grounded Guide, I’m thinking Firebats could be useful insurance against Free Speech stopping the above / Thunderclap against Illusions.

Not a great starting hand for offense. I’ll open with Tenderfoot and Jaina, then I easily threaten 4 damage if Onimaru leads.

Finesse has anti-air if needed, so I’m leaning away from Birds, and towards opening with double Firebat and Jaina for a ton of targeted damage. Cheap Neutral units can block against hasted counterattacks to start with.

Still on the slow start here. I think I’m going to open with Lobbers instead, then I can put the extra gold into Jaina to get some damage going. I’m expecting to have to block against Fencers pretty quickly, but if things go well I can have Jaina ping buildings and prepare for an Earthquake.

I could kill Onimaru this turn, but that leaves me with only a midband Jaina, facing a 2/1 Mox, so Nullcraft would kill her. I’ll just play it safe and kill the Argonaut. Onimaru can still kill Jaina, but it would be a trade at midband if he isn’t boosted.

My Thoughts

Don’t want to use an expensive draw 1 to maybe get to what I need. Instead I will skip worker and sprint to art of war, which he doesn’t have a strong counter for. Boot camp on the Mox is a natural way to cycle around for it, so hopefully it’ll work to my advantage. I’ll gamble he doesn’t have wither + spark + lobber + messenger (or ember sparks instead of the spark + messenger) and leave one soldier off patrol to avoid an easy sparkshot. If he does wither Mox so be it, it only spares him one small attack
