#24

Looking back, you had a bad break on the draw to your turn 3 hand. The nether drain tech was interesting, as was the spirit of the Panda. I was blocking 4 thinking of Doom Grasp and kidnapping, possible dinosize, but damn Panda long range skeletons would be bulldozers!

Pretty lucky win for me, you played great! Graveyard and BCs are terrifying


#25

GG, WP. That finisher was excellent. I haven’t exactly figured out a way to make Necromancy shine, so I keep trying different things. I knew I was in trouble when I didn’t manage to stop Calamandra from pulling in Tech IIs, but you picked the perfect time to eliminate Garth, and then I took too long teching up while trying to respond to your board pressure. Aside from that, there are a few other things I think I should have done differently, so I’m game for a rematch if you are.


#26

Sure thing! This is a random deck but it definitely has some fun things going for it. GL HF!

Awkward starting hand. I really don’t have any good response to that opening, but I’ll play the Imp to at least slow him down a little.

My Thoughts

Forgot to edit this bottom portion last turn. Interesting that he wants the spare gold over keeping Imp alive, I too want to float 1 and get my tech 1, as ideally I want to get a jail down next turn AND a centaur. We’ll see how the draw goes though.

Hey I got my wish, though MTruth in this hand means I won’t be getting a fun kill turn 4. We’ll see if it’s worth going MTruth over jail next turn… At least I know what I’m workering!



#29

Yep, I wanted to offset the hefty price of playing the Imp and have more resources with which to purchase defense on turn 2.

The goal here is to bait Calamandra into buying levels to mid and killing Argagarg to max, then swoop in next turn with a Doom Grasp.

Doesn’t it cost 3 cuz BI?

Fixed, thanks. If I can’t afford a Javelineer, I’ll have to settle for a Haunt.

Hm, didn’t really think about leaving Cala on 1hp… Haunt is no good for that. I guess I’ll take the free levels, expecting a Nether Drain coming but I could block that with Newsman? We’ll see, for now I’m going to venture the guess that once again Future is my jam so Xenostalker and an Assimilate for that damn Graveyard.

And, of course, both Doom Grasps are still in my 3 card deck, after drawing 5 cards. Sigh… I really hope he doesn’t have a Feral Strike in hand. Also, Jail is a good counter to Drakk’s maxband. I’ll want to destroy that at some point.

#34

Very interesting… did you whiff for a second game in a row? Or just jail is too much of a deterrent? My curiosity is piqued

My Thoughts

So my gut is that he has to have a Garth spell in hand (either he whiffed it, drew it but felt inopportune and had a chance to rs, or he double teched nether drain and got one on the reshuffle). So I could just lay newsman on 1 (Nether drain seems the obvious choice with a tech 2 rush) and float some gold, but if I’m wrong and it’s doom grasp, that will turn out to be a pretty poor play. Whereas if I Lawful Search THEN put down Newsie, I can pretty much guarantee a successful Feral Strike (who knows, could have even gone Bloodlust!), and my jail will deter pressure well enough to make a Feral Strike for Hive / Void Star almost certain success.

Okay let’s do that!

Doom Grasp indeed! And 2x Resurrector??! So he’s going to try to bully through my Jail most likely… I think I probably want to kill his graveyard then? Not like I’ll be assimilating it anyway, and I’m not stopping the tech 2 right now unless I want to double discard down to 0, which I don’t want to do. Yep Newsie on 4, break the graveyard, tech up and feral strike!

Come to think of it, with Archery down and Water Elemental / Tower in the mix, is Future really the right move? Perhaps Feral would be more menacing? Rampaging Elephant or Gigadon, or Barkcoat? Riskier for getting StW / Doom combo’d, but pretty fun! Naw, Hive and Void Star are still the safest, best options, future it is.



#35

Yeah, the plan was to cast one of them last turn, but you see, one time I got called into Flagstone court for jaywalking, falsely accused, mind you. Anyway, the judge, one Wilfred Murphy, was clearly biased and convicted me without evidence, so I lost my temper and called him out on his B.S. Ever since then, I’ve had improbably bad luck in one crucial situation after another.

Btw, where is your Newsman?

Worth getting a Xenostalker down first to protect Cala (plus it should likely stay alive), he’ll probably suicide Drakk just to revive him but that’s fine. Next turn another Hive and Void Star, keep up the pressure!

Garth hasn’t previously died this game

It would go to jail first

I don’t think Haunt can get the frenzy bonus +1 attack? I’ll check the rules thread
