[Casual Draft] charnel_mouse vs FrozenStorm


#161

Hmm, I continue to think Purple/Peace, Black/(Necro or Finesse), Neutral/X are the optimal P2 choices, but I wanna try different things too…

Let’s Try Red/Discipline


#162

I agree, but might as well experiment, right?

I’ll go Green/Balance/Blood.

Thoughts

Sparring Partner with Zane? Haste on Discipline II units? War Drums with Rambasa Twins? I’m not sure, but taking Blood to block some of these seems wise.


#163

I’ll try rounding out with ninja and strength, red/white lol


#164

Heh. I’ll round out with Feral, GLHF!

Thoughts

Adding Feral for anti-air from Huntresses, and it also seems like a decent spec to mix with Drakk’s haste.

Opening with Calamandra to try to get some early aggression going, Red starter doesn’t have as much teeth without Zane backing it up. Maybe I need to worry about Speed of the Fox as a replacement? Probably not until late game.

Strong aggro start from him, but Rook is the kryptonite for that aggro. This’ll be an interesting game :slight_smile:

woah, rook and oni at the same time? XD (jk, i know oni is just a copypasta mistake)

That would be a scary Turn 1 tag team.

Thoughts

Rook can just midband and walk past a patroller to kill Calamandra, so I can’t afford to get gold with the Prospector here. I could kill Rook, but I’d be delaying Tech I to do so and go down on cards. Oh, or I can just mine with the Prospector, and have Cal sitting behind in a bonus slot. That’s a better idea.

Teching in a Huntress and an Owl, either would handle Birds. I’m planning to go into hasted Balance or Feral units, so Owl into Circle of Life is a viable option later.

… Hmm, not a great hand for getting more blockers, but the Rampant Growth could be handy, and if I mine I could try my luck with the Young Treant.

Counter-attack!!! He doesn’t have a great way to take Rook down (tiny b x2 not withstanding) so I think making a play for earthquake makes sense.

Yep, still suck at using Cal.

Damn, every time I think I’m safe… I think it’s worth bringing in a Tiny Basilisk here, I’ve got no other way to deal with a levelled Rook. Bloodlust to get some attacks going. Worker + Young Treant + Owl leaves me with 3 gold, I might as well try to draw the Huntress… great, got it. Unfortunately I’m still short on defenders if I want to keep the Huntress safe from Rook and that Ogre, and the Panda’s Wisp is too fragile, so Midori gets to be the sacrificial lamb. Owl goes in patrol, because FrozenStorm probably can’t afford to Scorch it out of the way, and it stops Rook walking past the Treant.

… Hmm, got a Basilisk but not a Bloodlust, let’s see if I get a technician draw.

He’s heavy anti-air, but I should be able to put maxband Sets up if I want to. If he didn’t tech Tiny Bs he’s in for some trouble… Bird’s come up next turn too, and I can pivot to tech 2 as well.

Teching in Bears and hoping to draw one to Bloodlust next turn. Fully expecting to get Thunderclapped here, but I need the card draw in preference to playing the Tiger Cub too. Calamandra could come back in to block too, but I suspect I’d be feeding an easy Setsuki.

Thoughts

OK, once the Basilisk’s done its thing I need 10 damage to kill off those heroes. 8 base damage on Huntress and Bear, I need two more. I get at least one from Bloodlust on the Bear. The Rampant Growth would get me there, I can put it on the Bear and he’ll survive after the end-of-turn lust damage. Not much I can do to the buildings after wards apart from putting Bloodlust on Drakk, but Setsuki’s swift strike means I can’t just overpower into Rook. Next turn I can bring in another Bear :smiley: Better tech in Desperation, and I’ll see if I can get a War Drums off too. Without Snapback, it’ll be harder for FrozenStorm to deal with a levelled hero, outside of Grave’s sword, and that’s not hasted.


#176

Fold lol, nice combo draw. A little meme-y on my part to try that I spose, I didn’t expect Bloodlust, much less a nasty partner for it (omg Bloodlusted Rampaging Elephant would be scary…)


#177

Elephants were getting teched in next :smiley:

Good games, my friend, but I might take a break for a bit now. There are a few side projects like the Codex stats modelling that I want to get back to working on. It’s horribly broken right now and thinks Blue is the best mono deck.


#178

Sounds good my dude, many a GG in this thread I had a great time!
