I don’t think I’ve ever seen Plague Lab add +1/1 runes to multiple heroes before.

EDIT with that updated patrol (and thus, inability to get rid of Grave and stop him from infinite swording), I’ll concede here. GG WP! Wonky game

My Thoughts

This Plague Lab massing up heroes is bad news. I’m going to kill his Grave to keep the sword away, but eventually I’m going to be unable to swift strike through Orpal and Cala…



#430

Plague Labs are at their best when they’re stacking -1/-1 runes on everything your opponent has and stacking +1/+1 & sword runes on everything you have. :wink: GG WP; you really delayed my stacking shenanigans.

Yeah, I was worried about Nimble Fencer clearing a path to Grave and decided to use Martial Mastery to check, but I guess while deciding which card to discard, I forgot about the “check” part. Sorry about that. :confused:


#431

No worries, I almost did the same thing :slight_smile: let’s pause for a day or two, I’m on a business trip. I’ll roll a new deck Thursday


#432

Sounds good; I’m still deliberating on what build to try next.

Edit: Well, I was kind of tempted to switch back to [Finesse]/Peace/Truth, as I arrived at that build again while pursuing a completely different strategy and thus suspect it of being a flexible enough toolkit to use for tournaments. But, I think I need to get this zany [Future]/Anarchy/Blood idea out of my system first.


#433

I rolled a bunch of growth and I kinda wanna do something else, after 5 straight growth rolls finally landed on Demon/Anarchy/Ninjutsu. That sounds fun :slight_smile: What you wanna play?


#434

I’ll see this [Future]/Anarchy/Blood idea through.

Easy bigtime pressure, probably next turn will be teching up and maybe even also a HH. Kidnapping would be the only big concern, but it would be recoverable (hopefully)

My Thoughts

I think it’s likely he’s saving up to beat down Vandy with Zane or Bloodlust. So without much in hand for defense (I could go Summon Skeletons and that would most likely keep Vandy safe, but Bloodlust would still cause problems), so I think it’s better to build an advantage through teching up and Graveyard. If it so happens that he leaves Vandy alive for next turn, great, I can tech Meta and work from there :slight_smile:

My Thoughts

Going to go a liiiittle risky and tech both Metas. If I do so I’m 71% to draw 1 with both DPs, and I’d really like to do it w/o fetching. If I whiff, I probably end up with Steam Tank or Marauder + Taxman + Vystari for blockers, which is still solid.

FIRST TRY! This is awesome, too, as while it is likely Zane will die to his Zane (or Drakk), Vandy will live and I can Meta with Setsuki next turn (maybe)

Solid draw, I have the option to either Meta with Sets or Steam Tank + Tech up



#446

That doesn’t quite work, as Zane’s maxband ability is not optional, and targeting the Lookout will cost $1. Playing Calypso before playing Metamorphosis to empty your bank so you can’t afford to target the Mox doesn’t work either, because Meta would make you sacrifice her.


#447

Clever :slight_smile: in that case, let’s pretend Calypso doesn’t exist, and I will draw 1 extra and patrol / attack slightly differently
