The basic plan here is to rush a 3-hero Metamorphosis, then start using Feral Strike with Setsuki’s draw power to dump high-value units while Setsuki uses Swift Strike to provoke the Tower’s invisiblity detection and allow Vandy and Calamandra to crush buildings. By not playing units directly, I can unhesitatingly make use of Barons.

Building a Tech I now, does that mean he’ll try to Treant-draw a tech card to play next turn? I guess I’ll go for it… once they’re in play, they’ll be sticky enough, and they can proactively clear threats, which is fine as long as I don’t play anything with haste. I’ll go ahead and play Calamandra even though I don’t expect ther to live, because she’s not necessary for my immediate plans and my Tech I building is.

So close to tech-drawing the 2nd Gargoyle, but no dice. Still, with buffs, 1 should be enough to take down Calamandra, though not before she can cause some more trouble. Notably, I can now summon a hero without concern of giving away levels, however, to do so would mean I might not have the optimal choice available next turn. I kind of regret workoring the Panda, it would have made useful fodder for Banefire Golem… though I suppose Murkwood Allies is a superior choice, so I guess it’s fine. For now, I’ll present a variety of targets and hope that one of them looks more interesting to Calamandra than summoning a Tiger. I’m a bit unsure what I should be teching from here on, but I figure Dark Pact is a good start to make my buildup more reliable.

Might of Leaf and Claw. The Green Card every Black player fears. His attackers won’t be accomplishing anything soon. I think a stalking tiger next turn would be a nice addition.

Tough call here between a kamizaki attack on Calamandra or clearing anti-air units, but I think keeping the Gargoyles in play is more urgent.

Last game I didn’t plan for Gemscout Owls (which really highlights the disadvantage of planning by memory rather than using codexcarddb) and didn’t notice the Growth spec. I was also probably too focused on levelling Vandy first to get free level-ups with Metamorphosis, which might be easier to do with Black starter than Green.

Feral? That’s unexpected, but welcome. Probably he’s going for Gigadon with all those units, so I should try to clear the board as much as possible.
