My Thoughts

Can’t make ducks sneaky… that was dumb of me. Rhino can’t be sneaky either… Why do I have these Hidden Ninjas in my deck again?? lmao. Well hopefully the ducks can beat down heroes…



#226

Trojan Ducks are too big for Setsuki to hide.


#227

EDIT OH! I didn’t realize there was an attack restriction on Hidden Ninja. Let me look that over more carefully…


#228

Okay @Nekoatl, not-sneaky duck fixed to just kill Jandra, Vandy lives for now…


#229

All according to plan, mwuahahahahaha!

My Thoughts

Okay, options are:

  1. Ram Rook with IPN, he’ll be nearly dead (but definitely not dead)
  2. Stealth IPN at 4dmg to kill Graveyard or Tech Lab
  3. ??? that’s pretty much it

I don’t think I want any other techs, I want my ducks back…

If I kill the graveyard I have a pretty good shot of getting Eggship to do some work (Bird’s Nest would be the only counter), so fk it let’s do that…
And I drew Bloom, cool, Eggship goes bigtime. Fingers crossed no birds, and I can mess some stuff up

Thoughts

I’m going to take a gamble on drawing DeGrey soon, because I need something big to turn the tide.

"


#232

I just realized I shouldn’t have been able to attack with the Gargoyle on turn 11, because the -1/-1 runes had it exhausted.


#233

How would you like to roll that back?


#234

I think the only option is to actually roll back and redo that turn, though unfortunately we can’t forget future knowledge. I suggest you prioritize destroying the Graveyard over the Tech Lab with the surviving Duck’s ability damage if you attack with it, since you chose to do so with the IPN’s damage before you knew I had Terras Q inbound. But, it’s up to you how you proceed; it was my mistake that got us into this mess, after all.

#235

Yea I’ll play fair with the TerrasQ surprise, I didn’t think you’d have Bird’s Nest in hand so I wanted the Gargoyle out of the picture (you did re-draw your dark pact and next hand yea?) I re-drew for my technician (not “guaranteeing” it would be the bloom I drew with Hidden Ninja), but it ended up the same (drew the bloom anyway)

Just as a question, can you fetch the other Shadow Blade? It feels like you’ve already had 2 in the deck previously, though I just checked and it looks like you only definitely fetched one, not sure if you teched another but I’ll play on assuming you hadn’t

My Thoughts

EDIT well getting a Rook kill is big here, definitely gotta do that. Knowing what I know now, definitely the Tech Lab looks juicier, but I’ll re-play it straight. With the rook kill, taking away Garg looks even more attractive.



#236

I didn’t use the 2 cards I drew after reshuffle, and I thought it would be unfair to give myself a chance at something better, so before pressing Discard/Draw, I decided to reproduce my previously drawn hand (same with this redo turn). I checked to make sure I had only 1 Shadow Blade in cycle before fetching the other.

#237

No worries :slight_smile: Are you sure that’s the turn you want though? No other blockers? I have lethal on the board… (Jaina and Troq kill Vandy, Sets and Duck kill base)


#238

Eh… that’s fine. I think trying to do anything else in this situation would just be delaying the inevitable. GG, WP.


#239

Perhaps, GG WP! It was a bummer for me drawing ducks late to start (whiffed them turn 8, I was 72% to draw 1 or 2, also whiffed wither to finish the gargoyle a turn earlier and eggship to block it… I was 96% to at least get one of those cards!!), but that Bloom technician draw saved the game for me (Meta Rook is scary AF). I criminally underrated Bloom and Wither with this deck, they are exceptional Hero tools (made much better than Forest’s Favor by having no multicolor penalty!). Sets especially benefits from them (being able to pump your swift strike and weaken counterattacks, way better than it looks at face value).

I’m curious what your plan was for getting TerrasQ unlocked? I’ve had pretty decent blocking, and your deck is bloated enough that Deteriorate and StW alone wouldn’t get it done (though perhaps with Birds Nest, Shadow Blade and Dark Pact, you could have broken through Eggship.)

I’m also really curious why you wouldn’t Meta Arg on turn 10, that seems a better choice than Jandra if for no other reason than you guarantee yourself some more invisibility when attacking (you could even Soul Stone the Water Elemental if you wanted to, in order to keep some units alive / make the duck attack it)


#240

Jefferson DeGrey, Ghostly Diplomat = Warlocks-be-gone. I wanted to deploy the combo much, much, earlier but I kept bleeding gold to pay for the Gargoyle to kill Setsuki. She’s such a pain! :laughing: With how bloated my deck became, I also tech’d in Banefire Golems as a backup, but far too late to make a difference.

I thought allowing a sticky Jandra to patrol as Technician was more valuable than having a slightly beefier Argagarg. I may also have forgotten to account for Meta’s level-maxing feature when making the decision, not sure.


#241

I live for Meta’s maxbanding feature XD

What would you like to play next?

[Necromancy]/Past/Truth seems not so bad as I initially thought, and I’d like to see how far I can take it. /random 15
