Between River’s spells, Lobbers, and Fencers, marto’s turn 3 will probably be brutal. I don’t think my hand can do much against a start like that, either, I’ll just get weenies out with Garth and switch to Rook once he dies.

Yeah, BRO + dog is pretty much the best red can do !

Just teching in stuff to try and block up here. Pestering Haunt should be pretty good for setting up an Earthquake, and marto has no easy hero removal, so I’ll tech that in soon.

Really not happy with my patrolling options here, I think my best option is to put Rogue out, in either SQL or Elite. SQL stops Mad Man from killing her, Elite forces Zane to level in order not to trade, but dies to Mad Man. I suspect there are Fencers or Lobbers incoming, though, so SQL is moot. Elite trades with Fencers and Lobbers too, so forces a trade outside of Scorch or Zane shoving her. OK, Elite it is. Hoping for no boosted Pillage.

… Wait, what am I doing? If I’m not bringing in a hero, I might as well play the Imp instead. Imp in Elite, then.

Garth can get help get rid of Zane, but I think I’m still better off teching for Rook because marto’s deck can’t deal with him well. Putting him in SQL to stop two Fencers, or one using Two Step.

Playing Boulder and Mythmaking is obvious here, but what do I want to fetch? All my Black options look pretty good. Bone Collector and Plague Spitter are more likely to hurt me if they’re Kidnapped, stats-wise they’re all equivalent for the purposes of Discord. On the other hand, Plague Spitter is more helpful if there is a Discord, since it gives out runes. OK, going with the Spitter.

Time to think about Tech II. Either I go for Disease so Abomination can weaken all those fast Red/Finesse units, or I go Strength to make use of Mythmaking. What do I get with the latter? DeGrey won’t be that helpful unless Marto goes for Harmony, which I doubt. Morningstar Pass is OK against Red aggression, but I still need to keep units alive somehow. On the other hand, a lot of the rest of Disease is useless against Red, and Blood in particular. It would be useful against Grounded Guide, though. Hmm. Still not sure, I’m going to tech in an Earthquake and see what information I can get from marto’s next turn.

One of your taxmen should be at 2 health.

That’s right, scav only has 2 health.

OK, I guess I’m going Strength. But Barbarbarian aren’t much good without a way to buff them, so I guess I should be focusing on Whitestar Grapplers. But first, I can bring in the legendaries. And since that includes Morningstar Pass, I’m teching Lich’s Bargain before DeGrey.

Too much on the board to just leave my patrol empty, even if I attacked first with the help of Executioner’s boost, so I’ll have to suck up the Crashbarrows. Skipping a worker to fill the board and build a tower, hopefully that’s enough against Crashbarrows / Zane shoves.

Uh, this should be turn 6, and that’s a copy of your turn 5.


#18

I incidentally discarded/draw twice, hence the turn counter being +1. My turn isn’t the same though, I just didn’t play anything. My patrol changed a little, as well


#19

OK, but you’d already built your Tech II.


#20

oh my. OK then, redoing my turn !
