I’m not sure what my gameplan will be. I’ve mapped out next turn and I think I’m gonna try some silly stuff with counters, go for seers and I’ll…“see” what I can do :slight_smile:

Hmm, one of my starter cards disappeared from my deck at some point. I’ve added it to the deck for next turn. Hopefully since this is casual, you aren’t too offended :wink:

Sad I can’t hire my Argonaut. Really regretting moving my Faded Argo from Elite to SL. If I hadn’t, maybe I could’ve lived a really good Geiger dream. Anyway, moving forward (into the Future you could say) I’ll try and stay positive. Reaver next turn! Prynn is counting down… He has no units/heroes? I’d be worried if he went for Present, but most of the future stuff will take a turn to get online.

Gotta watch out for Prynn taking out the trash. Xenostalker is just too much of a juicy target. Better to save the gold for a Now! play next turn, if I draw it.

We’re still setting things up. Prynn fading away might be a reality! I’m not sure what he’s up to, but next turn I can Reaver bomb 2 things for 6 damage! It’s gonna be awesome.

This turn had a really lucky, dare I say “well-timed”, draw.

Also your FArgo should be 3/2, Prynn only had 1 attack.

Shenanigans! Purple feels like cheating when it works and clunky when it doesn’t.

Thoughts

Seriously it feels dirty, but was so awesome. I need to play Purple live now because these sequences are hilarious.

Edit: Just realized I could have sac’d the stingers and brought out OMEGACRON this turn too! Craziness. Oh well, next turn it’s on! :slight_smile:


#15

Oof, not sure I can recover from that. I was hoping you wouldn’t have both a Seer and Now! for that Reaver play, not to mention PoP and Hive.

I’ll take one more turn, but this is probably GG.


#16

Quoted for fragging truth! (Though some cards, like Hyperion, pretty much always work, and so pretty much always feel like cheating.)


#17

So I still think the game is over, but this turn turned out much better than I thought it would at first! Enjoy! At the very least I’m not conceding yet :slight_smile:

And @ARMed_PIrate is right: Hyperion works all the time!

I was just checking, looks good!! By the way, hell of a turn. One minute you were close to conceding, the next you’re breaking my Tech II!

Yeah I messed up even more because I didn’t actually worker! Just changed again. :slight_smile:, so now I’m floating one gold.
