Jail Turn 1. I happy. Actually going first against red is the one super rare circumstance in which Bluecoat Musketeer is actually sort of playable, which is why he wasn’t an auto worker.

Get that Tech I built before Inspector is dropped. Doing a early maxband Arg to migitate Jail, which means that I can only afford one 1-drop across this or next turn. Mad man has haste compared to Dog.

[details=Thoughts]Just Arg on the board means I don’t really have to be scared of much next turn, he wont be doing anything sudden with the red spells at +1 cost… probably. And jail more or less protects me from hasted units.

With that in mind I could’ve played a less aggressive hero but since I’ve made it tough for Feathers to play aggressively with the red starter I think I should take the opportunity to capitalise on Red’s weak defence. Next turn I’ll try to swing with Oni for value.

Then I’ll try using cheap blue tech 1 units and elite training to trade up on economy and take over the board.

I kind of expect to see a tower from Feathers in the next two turns.[/details]

Hopefully just weather the storm until I can bring out MoLC, tech Panda for flooding the board and Calypso for cheap unit to bust Jail with, and it synergizes with Surprise Attack later. Next turn build Tech II, block with elite Arg and tech Mad Man should be enough.

[details=Thoughts]Well, this seems pretty much fine. By the time the Elemental comes back online I’ll have the units to deal with it, in the meantime I’m looking at Arg being unlikely to do much that’s scary and probably mad man arriving on the board next turn to also not be that scary.

Meanwhile I’ve still got jail to slow down his units and I’ve got Oni on the board with two other units. I’ve got options on my turns. Right now my deck is flexible enough that I could go any way I want with techs. If Feathers goes to tech 2 this turn I’ll tech reactively to that, if not I’ll just go Peace and tech in a debilitator and a garrison first and a couple of air hammers second.[/details]

I’m realizing the Red starter’s limitations now, would’ve been much better off using the Green starter for early game strength, token summoning, and card draw. For now chump block and don’t give him particularly good trades, blocking with a selection of Giant Panda’s wisp/Calypso/Quince+mirror/Water Elemental next turn should be enough if I don’t draw MoLC, and Zane+Surprise Attack should take back some of the board the turn after that and leave the last two runes for hasty Red units.

[details=Thoughts]Bleh! I’m falling behind… or, less far ahead anyway. I could’ve attacked this turn but I wasn’t happy with the trades I was looking at so I’ve turtled up. Which I now realise was a mistake. Nevertheless I’ve got three awesome spells in hand next turn. As long as I have something on the board at the start of next turn I should be able to make some really good trades.

Newsman and Jail mean I’ve still got a fair bit of control I really only need to hold onto the board for a couple of turns and I can play a Garrison and a Sgt to try to win at tech II. I blocked on 3 with newsman because I’m scared of Might of Leaf and claw more than really much else and there’s at least some overlap with other spells. That still leaves me vulnerable to Surprise attack and Args spells but while those are bad they won’t outright win the game which MoLaC totally can and will.[/details]

It was close but I think I’ve got it in the bag now. As feared he put out Newsman on 3 but fortunately Calypso turned out to be just the right tech. Having all but cleared his board with guaranteed MoLC and Surprise Attack next hand and beefy units on the board I’m sitting pretty. Due to having no haste he’d be one damage short of destroying my Tech II at most. I’d be skipping worker next turn as well but it hardly matters. Gonna try [Growth]/Anarchy/Necromancy next game for the removal and chump blockers.

[details=Thoughts]Well, lesson learned. Don’t leave things alive if you can kill them. You give your opponent too many options and stuff like this ends up happening. Still his tech two is out of commission for TWO turns. Which is pretty great. I can play Tech 2 units now and pull ahead on the board by the virtue of their superior value for gold.

Worst case scenario… Surprise attack to have a bunch of hasted bullshit ruin my patrol zone? Still even if that happens I think my tech II should survive and then my Alpha will come out to block for me which will buy more time for me to start rushing tech III[/details]

Silly me. Pulling something out of patrol does not make it disappear, and of course he had MT. Fortunately Surprise Attack can still make the magic happen. Had a sweet turn planned out involving mirrored Sharks, destroyed Tech II+Jail, and 3 maxband heroes before realizing the cursed hero limitation, so I managed to squeeze out a second best. Tech in Detonate and Mind Control to deal with Garrison and Sergeant respectively, and hope to survive for two turns until Tech II is online again.

Ooh, the Debilitator instead of garrigent? Fine with me, it is much more useful on my side than his since his units all have low attack, anyways. I do feel a little guilty for punishing a rare teching and playing of DA… really hope that one day, someone will make it work. Drawing and discarding both MoLCs is unfortunate, but I believe I have enough board advantage now to push through. Since I had to worker Detonate and attached my first MC, tech in one of each.

[/details]


#13

Well, I forfeit. It’s unfortunate that you drew mind control right after teching it but that’s the way the cookie crumbles I guess. The only thing I had going for me was the DA to block and now that he’s on your side I have no way to push through and get him back. GG.


#14

GG! My draws were indeed good to me this game, especially the Charge at T4 allowing me to break through. Looking back I think you definitely should’ve attacked T4, perhaps levelling Oni in the process. I was wary of a Maxband Oni -> Art of War play the entire early game, as him and the soldiers would’ve been hard for me to deal with. Also, can I ask why you teched DA instead of Garrisons and Sergeants? I feel that had you been able to draw a Garrison last turn the situation might be better for you.

The board state pictures are fantastic. I really appreciate you doing it for every turn, it makes turns that much easier to plan out. I wish I could do the same but I often post away from home.

Do you care to rematch? I’d like to try Green starter this time and perhaps actually get MoLC to go off.


#15

Sure we can go again. I’ll stick with mono blue. Random 66.

I teched DA because I felt that I was falling behind and I needed something that would trade well. Drill sgt is really good but he’s not worth it if he just dies the turn he arrives which he will if you don’t have a patrol zone.


#16

Random 63, so close. I’ll be playing [Growth]/Anarchy/Truth this time.

[details=Thoughts]Same play as last time. I’m giving up a lot of tempo again but I figured there’s a good chance that I just see a Rich Earth come down and tempo passes right back to me. If not it’ll probably be Arg again, which I can handle much like last time. I think teching Scribe first was a mistake in the last game, the extra cards are great but he’s a blocker, he blocks and I don’t want to block against Growth, he’ll just block too and then win with MoLaC. So it’ll be elite training and Cadet to start then scribe and cadet second.

I still rate Elite Training so highly, what a card![/details]

[details=Thoughts]Ok, this is probably fine for now. Worst case scenario is something unforseen with Zane to kill Oni but I’m not really sure how that could possibly happen? Seven gold is a lot but it’s going to cost three cold to build tech I. I guess the thing I’m most scared of is Zane to maxband right away to kill Oni and my building inspector and then worker with the gold from MY scavenger? Probably Feathers should turtle up behind tough green units instead of something nuts-o like that though. I think an early max like in the last game is actually the strongest play against Jail so I’m glad I haven’t seen him yet.

For my part I actually got elite training in hand and manufactured truth too. So I can potentially swing for real value next turn. Hooray![/details]

[details=Thoughts]
So since this is a casual game, I’m trying something very far out instead of a defensive Arg opening. It might even happen be the best line, since Oni + Inspector is very troublesome and he might easily complete the lock by putting out a Newsman on 2 (or 3) and making things difficult to remove and deal with, while a hero wall with healing 1 may just be the perfect counter to the Blue starter, which has either small units or spells/abilities which plays tricks with units. The plan is to not do much at all next turn except build tech I, perhaps Forest’s Favor on Zane if I got lucky (and I did!), then hopefully unexpectedly go Anarchy and kill something important (Newsman? Jail?) on the backline, tech labbing MoLC in later. Teching in double Monkey and keeping my hand at 4 cards to also maximize the chance of leaving one in the deck for T4. Let’s see how it goes!
