Recognized an error from my previous turn where I shuffled a tiger cub into my deck before it died. I removed, drew a new card, and my stats going into the below turn were 4 in hand and 4 in deck.

I will concede here.

What are my options as green to counter this strategy? I knew it was what you would do because it is all I have played against whenever someone has done mono black so I imagine it’s a more popular build but was unsure of what I should be doing against it.


#16

hmmm, i am no green expert, so far green and red are my weak points (i mean i do not think myself very good at them). I noticed that despite we got to t7, u played only 1 TII unit, which is bad. Also, imo u should have used more ur heroes, like calamandra and her ferocity. Swift strike works also as patroller, so if u use ferocity while u have a water ele, only units with 4 or more HP can attack.
Also u kept max arg for quite a whle, yet no stampede. during ur t6 i would have used maxbandori to fly over my patrol and kill garth.


#17

I had not considered swiftstrike on defense, good point there, and I do still miss some max hero plays.

I never tech’d the stampede because I never felt I had a board worth using it on and I think I also missed a cycle to get more TII units in. I have only played a handful of green games so just trying to figure it out a little more but I think I have also lost maybe my last 5 games so I feel like I have mechanical issues somewhere.


#18

imo if u aim to TIII use balance, since Trex is the best TIII unit in green. Potent is good as a blocker, Fairy D make everything a flyier. Consider cala like a powerful body, since she needs just 4 lvs to become 4/5. if u pick growth then u must aim to activate myght of leaf and claw or getting Blooming ancient into play. remember that maxcala can bring out tigers even without the tech buildings. Also my suggestion is to try and use ult spells, since they turn tables. If u feel too much pressure, tech in moment’s peace to regain strenght
