This starting hand doesn’t jive well with my preferred opening plan, so I’ll abandon it and recalibrate.

$6 and 3 cards for $3 and 1, I’ll gladly take that trade. I’ll split up the Twins and reduce my IPN penalty, even though the gold balance tips in his favor for that trade. For tech cards, I don’t want units, which means I need spells, but which? I can’t decide between Circle of Life or Hidden Ninja, so I’ll take one of each… on second thought, there’s a good chance I won’t reshuffle until the end of my next turn, so I’ll go for the School instead of Hidden Ninja. Even if I get the Technician draw, it’s much more likely the School will end up in my deck than in my hand.

I want to summon a hero to gain levels if Grave trades, but because I lost my healing tree, I’m limited to 3 things in play at a time, and a hero isn’t as threatening as an IPN right now. Invisible porcupines seem super scary, so I’ll go with those.

puh… how many of those IPNs you got over there? plus annoying basilisk… :sweat:

so… invisible ninjas it will be - i fear this will find a sudden end :frowning:

invisible things stay untargetable even in patrol zone, right? so kidnapping and ogre recruiter won't help with IPNs when he gets his ninja academy - difficult… on the other hand i'll need a tower anyway to detect my targets - versatile style alone won't do… probably doesn't matter anyway what i'm teching… maybe a shoddy glider with sensei's advice can destroy a detected den school? quite a lot of conditions here :wink:

2 many.

Seems like Circle of Life is going to be more trouble than it’s worth, so I’ll get it out of my cycle. Trying for Gorgons for the card draw, and hopefully I can get some Setsuki maxband action as well (probably should have aimed for this sooner, but IPN…).

edit: put IPN in SQL, attack Tree with Drakk and Teck 2 with Grave - thx for clarification and the compliment :wink:

am i using the ogre recruiter right here? i can attack with IPN, right? it didn’t arrive after all, but was already part of the board.

that would be my interpretation. but i’m not so sure anymore after a look at the rules thread

The term “arrival fatigue” suggests that you could for that reason, but actually reading through the rules text reveals “… the turn they come under your control…” (p. 17), so you can’t attack with IPN this turn unless you Bloodlust him or otherwise give him haste. Nice play, btw!
