[Casual] Marto [disc/Str]/Fin vs codexnewb [Anar]/Necro/Growth


#21

oh my. okay, need to GG it there. clearly this approach isnt working. lol. nice one man.


#22

GG !
Imho, after reading your thoughts, you underestimate the high value I got from Grave in both games. Using Scav +techn is fine, but giving off two units nearly for free hardly sounds like a good option; in game 1 you lost 3 gold and 2 cards for 1 card, 1 gold, while I only spent 2 gold that weren’t lost, as Grave kept his levels after the fight. My P1T1 was the best White could hope for (having Grappling Hook for T2), so countering it is not easy at all, but maybe the reshuffle you were so afraid of would’ve been less hindering for your board development.

If you wish to continue the fight, let me know, I’m always up for some games :slight_smile:


#23

yeah man. thanks for the input. lets run it back and see if i learned anything.

okay. double BC because I dont want to max garth next turn just yet. also, hoping for charged BC. im not going too heavy for skeletons since he can just drop mr degrey, but they can be useful for now.

I can either play Aged Sensei and have a thinner deck, or try hero killing with Hook + Sensei's Advice. Charge + anything (BC or Horror) looks frightening, but to tell the truth, that's quite a lot of gold and cards (gold penalty) so I'm not sure whether or not ignoring the threat. A lvl 3 Grave in SQL should stop pretty much everything, but that would mean going down on cards, and I'm unsure it's a good idea this soon…

Having no tech I hurts - Partner would've saved me 2$, building Tech II instead of Heroes Hall, and Rambasas would offer far a stronger position for only 1$ more. I considered levelling up and building tech II, but it offers free kills to Garth, so I favor this line after all.

Okay, we’ll that could have been worse. Need to get at grave to make that HH play tougher. Going down on cards to do so, 3 cards 6 gold for 1 card 7gold - but more board control. skipping worker/garth maxband makes sense here. putting BC out front in case of discord, fencer, etc… you know what, thse skeletons won’t do much for me anyways. ill just sacrifice one to force a reshuffle, keep hand size, etc

teching deathrites and LB…well damnit, drew the LB. that’s useless…oh well.

Workering Snapback as I guess I lose if I ever stop having the momentum. I can either lose nothing or breaking Tech II, depending on how I deal with BC, either with a double-buffed Fencer (but then Partner can't attack) or with Sensei'd Twin. BA + Arg + stuff is enough a threat to conveince me. I'll tech back a twin then, with an Earthquake I could use, maybe, in some situations ? Sensei's Advice on next turn should help breaking through any patrol.


#34

rambasa survivor? bone collector killed sql, garth killed tech.


#35

Oh my. I’ll redo anything then. To tell the truth I think I prefer this, as it means I start the turn with 4 cards !


#36

haha, yeah. for me it’s the lesser of two evils. not looking too great for me at the moment. let see if i can come back here.


#37

Edited. Well I was wrong after all, I’ve found no good way to break tech II this time :frowning:


#38

ugh, the double fencer…nice one.

It took long to play this round. I hesitated whether maxband Rook or Grave; the latter offers a stronger board, with SQL Grave 5/6+A very hard to remove with anything else than Doom Grasp, but here I'm pretty sure to cast a tremendous Earthquake on next turn, which should be endgame. If ever Garth comes back with Nether Drain, I guess I'll be able to sweep again, but I may have to use Grave's sword this time. Let's see.

ill GG it there. still figuring this codex out without much hero strength. nicely played.

im down to keep going, but want to switch it up. i randomed [balance]/growth/law. P1 to you.
