Can’t do much to Grave with that Savior Monk healing every turn, so it has to go. I can’t get a decent patrol going here, so I’ll just have to tech up and hope he can’t boost both the Flagbearer and Grave this turn to destroy my Tech II.

… OK, Kidnapping might save me if he does destroy my Tech II.

Grave is at 4/2, due to the tower.


#27

Also, GG, can’t keep up with that. Having real problems dealing with early Grave here, I guess I should have just RG’d the Panda on Turn 2 to get rid of the Monk, generally go for even trades so Hook+Sparkshot has less of an effect?


#28

GG. That sounds like a good strategy; I think I would have had a harder time if faced with more aggression. Against Hook + sparkshot, keeping 1 health units out of the patrol zone would make them harder to deal with as well. At times I left myself rather lightly defended, and was worried about Kidnapping and creative Bloodlust, but Grappling Hook + Snapback + Martial Mastery seems to be a surprisingly effective toolkit for spell suppression so I don’t know how reliable Blood magic would be. I’d be interested to see how some or all of those countermeasures play out after my tournament game finishes, if you’d like.


#29

Sounds good, just put a post up when you’re free!


#30

Sorry for the delay. Do you mind if I swap out Truth for Past? I only included it for Free Speech which I now feel is a bit redundant, so I’d like to replace it with something more interesting.


#31

No worries on the delay! Feel free to swap out.


#32

Thanks. Now playing [Discipline]/Law/Past. GL HF!

Hmm, I’m actually less scared of Prynn than I am of Quince. Origin Story doesn’t stop Drakk’s Frenzy for a turn like Free Speech does. Stewardess of the Undone and Undo just make me want to use even more Pandas / Blood units. I just need to work out how to deal with Grave, maybe an early Kidnapping tech.

Putting Treant in Squad Leader means Grave has to maxband, or midband and use a Grappling Hook, to kill him. No damage in return, but that’s the only way I can see to keep Treant alive to attack something.

Polymorph: Squirrel would be a cute way to get around Insurance Agents, and would also make it easier to deal with Grave. I’ll probably bring in a Glider, I suffered last time for not being able to hit things in the back row.

Tricky business here; I really wish I had my Martial Mastery in hand so I’d know what to defend against. I’ll gamble that he doesn’t have both Rampant Growth and Dinosize in hand and wait until I have a second hero before killing Argagarg. I’ll patrol Grave as Technician so on the off chance he dies, I’ll at least recover my hand size.

No Grappling Hook this turn, so I’m safe to put Drakk in patrol too. Probably need to add a Moment’s Peace next turn.
