I really don’t know how to play by forum at all. Where can I find the instructions on how to do so?

Here’s a link to the Codex Tracking Spreadsheet and the Collected Codex Resources, both of which are pinned at the top of the Codex category. If you have questions about the spreadsheet in particular, try reading its thread – a lot of the questions you could have are already discussed there.

Aaaand as always against Red here begins the lovely game of “what card combinations kill me?”.
just playing Older Brother has the problem that Frenzy + Nautical Dog will kill Grave. It will lead to my opponent going down a card while the gold exchange isn’t too bad if I patrol Tenderfoot in Scavenger.
Bloom on Grave will allow me to kill the Bloodrage Ogre while retaining presence on the board. However, midbanding Jaina plus Mad Man can easily trade with what is left which and would leave me at a 1 gold deficit as well as leaving a scary Jaina on the board that can use her maxband next turn.
Scorch or Bombaster aren’t really a thread because they are too gold inefficient.
So I guess I’ll just go with putting more stuff on the board because at least it will cost him cards and I don’t want to have to deal with a high level Jaina.

Okay, pretty much the play I expected. Rambasa Twin allows me to get a presence on the board again quickly and I don’t think he can afford to clear the board again without investing way too much.

Yes, that is definitely too costly to get rid of two Rambasa Twins! I had to delay my Tech II for a turn because I need to get rid of Jaina, but the way the reshuffles fall this game it is not a big deal. I’d prefer not to play Brick Thief and float the two gold, but Pillage exists and an additional patroller is usually a good thing to have against Red.
Let’s talk about spec choice for a bit. Probably not Finesse because I got only one Nimble Fencer. Disease seems nice, but their main feature of -1/-1 runes everywhere seems a bit wasted against Red as they usually don’t have a big board and I have currently no setup for Plague Lab shenanigans and would have to concentrate my efforts on getting getting a sword rune on Grave or more +1/+1 runes from a Sparring Partner I didn’t tech this game. Discipline meanwhile has Mind Parry Monk, which would be great if he planned on using Jaina some more and Focus Master is very annoying for Red to deal with, IF I ever get a board to support that.

I also messed this up. I put 2 cards into my discard pile as a fix. This isn’t actually correct, since I technically had a chance of drawing these cards this turn, but I didn’t play any cards from hand this turn anyway. Hope I didn’t make any more mistakes.

I think for a casual game that’s fine! It might be helpful in the future though, that Google Docs has the feature to revert to earlier versions by clicking on the “last edit was X hours ago” at the top, which makes it easy to redo a wrong draw.

This should have 4 HP after the last turn, because Brick Thief stole a brick from it.

I debated not killing Drakk, as it doesn’t get me much, but I very much prefer him to not be alive. Let’s hope he doesn’t have a double Crashbarrow ready for me.

It’s worth noting that Google Drive’s “Revision History” feature doesn’t exist on mobile versions, so you have to be using the spreadsheet on a computer to do that. Still, it’s extremely handy when you do have a computer!

Got lucky on Technician draw and got a Crashbarrow. This lets me wipe his board and destroy his Tech II, in exchange for cutting a worker. I also checked what kind of hasty stuff he can have to get rid of my Jaina and found Timely Messenger + Nimble Fencer, so I Squad Lead Jaina to prevent that. I’m not sure I teched in the right stuff, Burning Volley may be a little risky. Also considered Desperation/Ogre Recruiter/second Bugblatter.

Overpower only works when the primary target is a patroller, so you have to modify your turn a little.

To draw before teching, just wait to put any cards in the Tech section until after you’ve already drawn a card.

I did indeed do this, but the output still said I teched before anything else.

I did not know this. I’ve edited my post. Only difference is I lose my Man Man.

That’s probably because the spreadsheet automatically puts teching and getting gold from workers at the top of the actions column each turn. You can manually move those down and put a note saying you drew from Technician above them, and it should show up correctly in the output. Regardless of whether you do that, if you wait to tech until after drawing it should correctly handle the actual moving of cards, regardless of what it says.

Yeah, the output will always put the Teching first. If it bothers you, the only way is to change it around manually.

On the topic of the game: that was a fearsome turn!

Crashbarrow, Shoddy Glider AND Jaina is probably the most extreme variant of this red tactic - I haven’t encountered that before!
The most important thing for me would be to get his Tech II down, but that might be ambitious as YLD would’ve been my best bet for that… But if that is not possible, I might have to run him out of ressources.
Also, too bad Nimble Fencer + Bloom is not enough to get rid of Jaina. Let’s hope he doesn’t have an equally scary follow-up next turn, although with Zane always as a possibility I’m not too optimistic - just in case I’m going to build a Heroes’ Hall so I never run out of stuff to play even if he keeps killing my Tech II.

I am ahead, so let’s press the advantage. I regret teching in Rickety Mine. Would have been way better as a Lobber/Firebat/Taxman. Teching in Desperation right now seems great, though. I also don’t think he can get rid of my hero, so I double down on the Burning Volley. Perhaps a second Desperation would have been better, though.
