Either FrozenStorm drew really badly and couldn’t put up anything to protect Vandy, or he’s baiting me to kill her so he can cast Two Step on those Gargoyles. I’m guessing the latter. Putting the Taxman in Elite can deal with one of them, but then a non-Stepped Gargoyle can trade with it too.

Tech II or a single hero will both go down to the Gargoyles. I could play both heroes, midband one, and hope one survives. The alternative would be swapping the Heroes’ Hall out for a Tower so the Taxman can kill Two-Stepped Gargoyles in SQL, but then I don’t have as many options for counter-attacks. I think I’ll risk the double hero play, if Prynn survives I can trash a Gargoyle, then Nether Drain her if Garth survives too. If not, I can cast an expensive Sacrifice the Weak.

Teching in a Ray to block Gargoyles, and a Golgoth since it’s my biggest unit within Past and Necromancy that doesn’t rely on Skeletons (Catapult) or cost more than I’m comfortable with (Wraith). I’ll tech in Resurrector and Second Chances next turn if I have the breathing room.

okay I just didn’t notice the HH either…? This looks bad, but killing Prynn should help…?

Bloom gives a total of 3 max HP, so the Taxman should still kill it, I think?

no cuz taxman is whitered

Holding on to the Rogue in case I need to rune a blocking hero later on, it’s annoying enough having to take Rook down here. With Taxman withered, I’ll need to maxband Garth before I attack if I want to kill Rook, but I at least have gold left over for Sacrifice the Weak to kill the bloomed Gargoyle - puts me down on cards, but I really need that bloomed Gargoyle out of here. I don’t think there’s anything I want to fetch other than the Taxman already in discard, so I’ll just tech as planned.

… Drawing my two combat unit Tech II cards before I tech up isn’t great. The Graveyard might be useful for keeping Taxmen out, though. Hopefully I’m not getting Fencers immediately in my face.


#129

Zane is in the penalty box, he isn’t allowed out hip check Rook like that


#130

Whoops, I checked your last turn for hero deaths but not mine. Fixed, back to you!


#131

no lvls do not fizzle. You overpaid max garth. garth gets 4 lvs (2 for drain+2 from rook-kill)
EDIT: lvsl do not fizzle cuz drain would only stop rook from lv up, not garth :wink:


#132

Actually Garth only gets a kill on Rook by Maxbanding first (4+1 armor -2 GPT -3 Max Garth), thus why the levels fizzle. his turn is just a bit out of order

I think I’m OK for removal, but Terras Q’s resist 3 could be a problem. Chaos Mirror should deal with that, and if I don’t need the damage boost swapping the defender with an inactive Gargoyle is also pretty good. Anything else I should worry about? Bloom was annoying, and Soul Stone would be even more so. Vortoss Emblem should help with the latter, or Zarramonde’s arrival ability.

Zane can get killed by the Gargoyle here, but that gives me a good chance of killing it or banishing it, so whatever. Hoping for a Resurrector in hand pretty soon.

… Yeah, like that one. And Second Chances too, if I can spare the gold. And a Taxman if I can’t. Nice hand if I don’t get wrecked.

My Thoughts

A chance here to eliminate heroes from his next turn all together feels pretty well worth skipping tech 3. I’m fairly likely to split the Zarras, especially going down to 3 cards, so let’s go with it.

Whelp, some breaks are nice some not so much. Thems the breaks. Next turn will be teching more tech 3 and teching up.

Whoops. Should’ve just brought in Prynn without Zane and banished the Gargoyle. Time to dump my hand and block up. Resurrector’s probably still getting killed, but if I put the new Taxman in front he has to level up River if he wants to kill the Resurrector with the Gargoyle without losing it or Two Step. I’ve got some float, so at least I can come out and kill stuff afterwards with Garth and a friend, but this is going to be a really painful turn.

My Thoughts

A bit of a dangerous move with my tech 2 low here, but I think it’s worth an empty patrol to keep Vandy available, with a Dark Pact coming up and pretty minimal threat available from 3 cards of Past/Necro T2, especially if it’s a gimmicky Rez + Second Chances thing he’s trying to do. Happy to ditch messenger here if it means four dead things on his side. Such a bummer I’m not drawing into one of those Zarras…

Two Step should have gone to discard.

it is on my sheet, just forgot to remove from backline. Card counts remain correct

I think I scuppered my chances on Turn 6 by not trashing the Gargoyle, but we’ll see.

Huh, he traded River to save gold for Tech III. I can clear his board, in that case. That tech lab threatens hasted Blademasters, which are more worrying to me than Zarramonde. It also threatens Maestro, so no reason to tech in the Slow-Time Generator I was considering. I don’t think it significantly changes my approach, though, given the removal capabilities I already have.

Fetching the Resurrector back seems like the best option while I’m vaguely likely to be able to defend it. I’m not sure how to best patrol, though. Garth in SQL seems reasonable to block a Fencer boosted by Grounded Guide, the main thing I’m worried about is if FrozenStorm has a Blademaster in hand. I think I therefore want to patrol the Resurrector too for the bonus, it makes it vulnerable to Shadow Blade but I doubt FrozenStorm will have it.

… Eh, Taxman in hand is OK. I’ll have to hope for a good Technician draw if the Resurrector gets killed.
