My Thoughts

This is a bit of an “advantage P1 matchup”, with both decks liking to have the initiative, and a little red favored, but should be fun!


I’m not very familiar with Red, but I will do my best. GL HF :slight_smile:

I’m not that familiar with Red. I generally think of them as fast rush, but there is already a wall I can’t break through with the available cards. I’m going to play defensive of sorts for now.

My Thoughts

Probably not a good idea to give me free levels and force yourself into a late tech draw. Going win more with Birds and SP


Alright, I guess I have a couple questions before I make my next turn.
(1) Do you take 1 damage to your base when Drakk dies? Or does that only happen when he dies on my turn?
(2) If you use sparkshot to kill both scav and technician at the same time, then do I discard the card before drawing or after drawing a new card?

  1. He takes the 1 damage. He just forgot to record it.
  2. You don’t discard anything? You just get a gold and a card both. There is no maximum hand size in Codex, only the maximum redraw size of 5.

Grave is exhausted and cannot patrol. You also forgot to record your Savior Monk as being in play. Maybe patrol with the Savior Monk instead.

Thank you @Taz, yes @Ellume I take the one damage now (I always forget to mark it, sorry!) and I submitted my turn just as the internet went out, so when I re-did it I missed re-doing my patrol. Sorry about that

As for the order of the technician going to discard and drawing the card for technician death, that is the order. One is a consequence of the other (you draw a card b/c the technician died and went to discard). This is unaffected by the sparkshot, it always happens in that order.

So just to be 1000% clear:

  1. Technician dies, and goes to your discard.
  2. You rs draw 1 for the death
  3. Beginning of your next turn but after resolving the patrol stuff above, you tech 2 cards to your (now empty) discard.

Make sense?

Decided to go firebats to try give a bit of strength and flexibility. I’m pretty concerned with the strength on the board there is already for his side.

I kind of think I’m already dead, but give it another turn or so.

Hmmm I don’t think you quite have corrected for being P2; now that I look at it, you’re a worker behind the last three turns. So you should have 8 workers now, and a lot more gold (3?)

We can just start over if you’d like, since the game didn’t exactly open favorably for you anyway (as it wouldn’t for any P2 not getting their fair shake of income ^_^) If not though I shall play on

@Ellume friendly reminder that action’s back to you, unless you’d prefer to start the game over which is fine too!

@FrozenStorm Thanks for the reminder. I missed the last email. I think I’ve pretty much lost as it is, so how about we start a new game? I will go ahead and start as P1 for real this time lol :slight_smile:

Hmm, a little unexpected he would trade that and maxband Zane. Typically better to get more impact out of Zane maxband by shoving and killing things and getting resources for it. I’ll throw Grave out in Elite as kill bait and hope to score levels off aggression next turn.
