Thoughts

Well, I didn’t have many useful options for my first turn. If I’d had Bloodrage Ogre I might have played it instead, but this’ll do for now. That said, since I’ve already hit his base, maybe I should go for a base race? Never tried that before, but then again I’ve mostly been teaching new players the basics at this point… Well, I should at least wait and see what he does first.

I believe that is correct, yes :slight_smile: always happy to offer my thoughts to new players, thanks for starting the thread and gl hf!

Putting up the wisp wall, intentionally doing the “weird thing” to technician a wisp as I care more about generating card advantage by building a board wall than I do about drawing my first techs turn 3. We’ll see how that turns out, I’m not totally sure
[/details]


#3

I won’t be taking my turn for a while (normally I’m asleep by now), but I noticed a couple things. One, you accidentally included a link to the table talk thread for the free-for-all battle, and two, your base should have taken 3 damage from my Makeshift Rambaster.


#4

No worries, and ty for the base damage reminder!


#5

I’ve basically got my turn sorted out. I do want to ask, just for future reference: If I killed your Technician Wisp right now, you would have to reshuffle and draw before teching, right? I don’t think I’m going to do that this game, but I want to make sure regardless.


#6

Yes that’s correct, and why it’s usually a bad idea to patrol technician on your first turn. I’m trying something a little strange here XD


#7

Well, who am I to deny letting you try something new and strange? :wink:

[details=Thoughts][spoiler]
Well, this is a weird patrol… Since I can’t patrol Makeshift Rambaster, and I don’t see any way to clear his board, I need something to discourage Playful Panda from attacking, and Squad Leader Bloodrage Ogre fits the bill. The only way he could break it this turn is to use a spell or Argagarg’s midband to give the panda at least +1 ATK.

Speaking of, I decided to bring out Jaina and patrol her in Technician, and the only way I can see to kill her this turn involves using 4 of the 6 gold he has and requires both Rampant Growth and Forest’s Favor in hand – and it’s not really worth it for him, since his only patroller would be the wisp, he’d have to either go down on cards or skip a worker, and if I were to get Lobber in my next hand, I could revenge kill Argagarg with it and Zane.

Thus, since I want to get some mileage out of Makeshift Rambaster this turn (can’t patrol, so I’ll just attack with it as long as there’s a worthwhile target), the decision is between letting him have enough gold to play a 2-gold unit and build a Tower, or making his cycling weird. Seems obvious to me, but I’m wondering why he put it there… Well, either I’ll see soon or nothing will come of it.

For tech choices, Lobber seems obvious, but I went with Ember Sparks so I could be more adaptable Either I can take out one thing by concentrating all 3 damage on it, or I can pick off multiple smaller things (and there might be a point left to ping a building)!

Okay let’s see how this plays, I think if he’d gone Drakk things would be more problematic but Jaina isn’t super threatening, I can withstand a beating from what’s on the table and come back beefing up the board as I continue to tech and build econ. Rich Earth turn 2 is risky but hey, I’m thinning my deck a LOT and should trade favorably here!

Thoughts

[spoiler]Well, I’m definitely noticing one benefit of play-by-post: I have more time to think my move over. As I ran this through, I found more and more room to optimize how to wipe the board. I almost played a Haste unit and went down on cards just to kill the Wisp when I still had Makeshift Rambaster ready to poke it! Now I’ve got him in an awkward position, and I might soon have a chance to transition from wiping his board to hitting his Base (or Tech Buildings).

I figure that Lobber is good enough here to have both copies, and Fire Dart should be economical enough that I can still do other things with it if needed. I’m still undecided on going with Anarchy or Blood Tech II, but I can decide after his turn. It depends in part on whether I can afford to play Bloodburn next turn…[/spoiler]

Realized that I hadn’t updated Jaina last turn after healing her to Lv. 4. Not that it mattered that turn, since you couldn’t attack her anyway, but I’ve fixed it for consistency.

[details=Thoughts][spoiler]I said that my choice of Tech II path would depend on his turn, specifically whether or not I could play Bloodburn that turn, and it turned out I could kill the Centaur with my existing board presence (Farewell, faithful Makeshift Rambaster). Double Crashbarrow is pretty obvious, so I’m wondering what he’ll do about it. I suppose something like Ferocity could be an issue, but I’ve got Fire spells for that, and even if he got Wandering Mimic through Circle of Life, there’s no longer any haste on the board for it to copy.

Depending on how things go next turn, I might be able to tech Burning Volley, but I’m thinking it would be good to bring out another Hero’s spells. Drakk could Kidnap things like Rampaging Elephant (probably the thing I’m most worried about, simply because it has so much health), while Zane could give me Sharks, which are are nice but somewhat redundant with double Crashbarrow – the main advantages being that it’s a spell, so it can be used even if Tech II gets destroyed, and that there would be 2 sharks with 6 attack between them, so it could be nice to potentially clear 4(!) patrollers at once… But they’d have to be small, so it’s probably not that helpful against Feral. Looks like I’m probably going with Kidnapping and either Burning Volley or another Tech II unit next turn, but we’ll see.[/spoiler][/details]

[details=Summary][spoiler]That took some doing, but I’ve wiped the board again. Admittedly, I wish I could be destroying the Tech Buildings instead, but I’m really trying to keep him from having enough board presence to hit me. Next turn I need to destroy whatever his highest level Tech Building is (depends on whether he builds Tech III) so he can’t keep putting big things in front of me.

Got Jaina to Max Level, so I added Burning Volley (not that I’ll be getting it for a while). I also added Chaos Mirror, because I realized that giving a Lobber the attack of a Gigadon (or a Rampaging Elephant, or whatever) is too funny to pass up. More importantly, the Haste that Zane has is the only way I’ll be getting back to 5 cards in hand (in hindsight, I should have used him instead of Lobber, but oh well). Probably going to get Tech II and a Tech Lab next turn, unless I need the gold to break his Tech building(s).[/spoiler][/details]

It’s good that I’m getting to practice using the sheet, because I seem to mess up using it every turn… This time, I forgot to tech any cards, and I don’t know any way to get it to re-randomize the hand and deck now that I’ve clicked the Discard/Draw button. Would it be OK if I just threw them into my discard, or should I use random.org to get a new hand and deck order and manually edit the sheet?


#16

What I usually do in cases like this is reconstruct my hand pre-discard/draw via copy/paste, settle the piles to where they should properly be, then hit discard/draw again. If that’s too much hassle though, this is a casual game, I have no issue with you doing what you gotta do :wink:


#17

I went with your suggestion. It took a few minutes to piece everything together, but I’m fairly confident that this is correct now. Edit: I totally forgot that Tech Lab only costs $1. Now it’s all right!

[details=Thoughts][spoiler]Well, we’ve reached the tipping point. Of course it had to be Barkcoat Bear and Ferocity together… But it wouldn’t have mattered much what unit he used, since my hand was mostly useless that turn.

Now it all depends on what he’s going to deny me: Burning Volley or Pirate Gunship. If he kills Jaina, then all is well, since I have Pirate Gunship in hand. On the other hand, if he destroys Tech III, then things will get much tougher… But I’m not sure it’s impossible even then. Of course, he doesn’t know which of the two I have in hand, so it’ll be interesting to see what he goes for (or if he can find a way to stop both)![/spoiler][/details]

Not if he builds tech 3 first I guess… I’m going to go for Elephant and hope I can start crushing stuff :slight_smile: If he drew gunship this is gonna be pretty much over

Thoughts

Honestly, winning this came down to luck at the end. It might have still been winnable even if I’d had to wait a turn for Pirate Gunship, but there’s no way to know for certain, since this is what actually happened. I’m sure there were several things I could have done better, but I’m happy I survived long enough to get a chance to be lucky!

Yup that is certainly game, GG WP!
