Will try out opening with Spore Shambler. A shame Ironbark Treant is in the same hand though.

Just useful tip, when starting a game with someone, if you tag them ( @name ) then it gives them a notification and a useful link to the game :slight_smile:

Wanted to go Circle of Life after using Spore Shambler but BROgre makes it not worth it without Ironbark Treant. So Green’s token spam instead, since Red started with Drakk and not Jaina. Was considering not summoning Caly so Red can’t kill her on T2 but threat of Pillage makes floating 2 gold a terrible idea.
Well, I whiffed the MA, so using the gold next turn will be hard. I can maybe play more cards, then use Young Treant on T4 to draw back to full, but that depends on Red’s T2.
EDIT: Young Treant is in my T3 hand. How did I not notice that?

So one of the main weakness of green is that it is I know exactly how many attackers I need to defend from (at least until tech 2 balance and if I have hasty units out). Drak is a really annoying hero for green as well, and although he can kill him here, it will cost him a lot of cards, which will severely dampen his tech plans. And if I can keep him of tech 2 for a while, I should be in good shape.

Turn 3 and already desperate. :open_mouth: Original plan was to play Ironbark to SQL and build Tower. This is the best defense against standard tech of Lobbers. Next turn would maxband Caly and fetch a Tiger to regain some hand size. But IF Red’s first tech was Flame Arrow because he knew Drakk would die to Caly stealth, then that’s literally a losing position for me since MA would be a dead draw and I can’t use Caly maxband.
Maxbanding Caly this turn prevents Flame Arrow, and I can still hopefully build Tower and fetch a Tiger next turn. But it floats a gold and forces me to put Ironbark in Elite, whereas a 2/5 would’ve been better for holding Red off. Really wouldn’t play this way normally, but I have to give Shadow credit for that. I’m gonna feel really silly if he actually didn’t tech Flame Arrow at all. The WIFOM is real :persevere:

Going with my plan. I chose Stalking Tiger over Predator Tiger so its ability can’t be used against me if it gets Kidnapped. Hopefully he doesn’t luck out next turn with a game winning double Crashbarrow or the like. I thought about patrolling Tiger in Lookout to discourage Kidnapping but he would probably rather kidnap Ironbark because he can’t suicide the Tiger easily.
Drew both teched cards! Assuming he isn’t lucky enough to kill Caly next turn a 4/4 Swift Strike should be able to stall until I can get to Tech II.

Against green, just keep their board relatively clear, and theres little they can do. Hes managed to rebuild his hand, so once again offering up Drak at an even worse trade this time. More crashbarrows incoming next turn as well

Well, this is the best I can do. If he has Kidnapping, then it’s game over. If not, then probably build Tech II + Murkwood Allies next turn. This is looking really bad.

Stalking Tiger is invisible while Calamandra is in play (which prevents the opponent from targeting it unless they have a Tower), so putting it in Lookout is pointless unless you expect her to die before it does.

But in the (unlikely) event he doesn’t have Kidnapping, he probably won’t be able to kill Stalking Tiger so that buys me some time for my next turn.

as pointed out by Hobusu, your Tiger is invisible, and therefore without a tower, I can’t target it. Kidnapping targets, and therefore while Cal lives your tiger can’t be Kidnapped (although I can neither confirm nor deny my ability to kidnap in general).

I think this might reveal some hidden information about the game, but

Summary

If I don’t patrol the Tiger, even if I play other patrollers instead of casting Ferocity, I think on Red’s next turn he can just midband Drakk and kill whatever I used to patrol with GPT (possibly stealing a gold), and then he still has the power to kill Caly, which would maxband Drakk and let him play a hasted unit which may kill Stalking Tiger. He doesn’t even have to use Kidnapping. If I patrol I can’t do anything against Kidnapping, but I at least have a chance against his current board of double GPT + Madman. AFAIK no Blood Tech II aside from Land Octopus has more than 4 HP, and Red has no way to armor any of its attacking units. Double Shoddy Glider is yet another matter.

If you feel its hidden info, I’ll read it after the game, Hobusu or someone else can always private message you if they want to point out something.

I can’t get through his Tiger with that swift strike, not sure why the Lookout positioning, but hey. With the multiple threats I’m presenting, he can’t remove all of them (Max Drak + Kidnapping, Max Zane, Tech 3, Crashbarrows etc, so taking a turn out to build my tech 3 when hes still on tech 1 sounds very good.

So I get to play on. I’m not sure what to tech, since this is going to be my last significant tech, but I probably want Midori in play to boost any remaining Frogs to 2/2. But if I draw an expensive Tech II, I’m going with that. Not going to Tech III this game, and thankfully don’t have to deal with Gunship just yet, but a Commander seems scary too since I was so behind in teching up.
Or maybe he built Tech III for Zane and Jaina, not Commander.

Lost all 4 frogs, even though I tried to take away some of Red’s board presence last turn. A perfect coordination of Zane’s three abilities, plus Drakk and the other GPT… But if I killed the other GPT he’d probably get another free unit off the Technician draw, which could’ve been worse.
There is not much else I can do. The end is near.

@Emajor a clarification about invisibility: an Invisible unit or hero is Untargetable regardless of whether or not it’s patrolling (provided the opponent has no detection). Note that Untargetable is not the same as Unattackable.
This means that in the case of your Tiger, you could’ve patrolled it in e.g. Scavenger, and it would’ve blocked ground attackers, while still being safe from Kidnapping.

Oh. So a patrolling Invisible unit is attackable but not targetable? Guess a lot of my thoughts don’t make any sense. :expressionless: I think it’s a bit weird how a patrolling Invisible unit loses some of its invisibility, but not all of it.
