[Casual] Nekoatl [Necromancy]/Growth/Blood vs FrozenStorm [Peace]/Future/Feral


#448

@Nekoatl edited above, since Zane can’t shove invisible patrollers I decided to kill Glaxx and risk a Bloodlust / Sharks (you only have 3 cards after all). Redrew my whole hand so as not to have unfair knowledge advantage. Proceed :slight_smile:

My Thoughts

Easy decision here to go to tech 3 and go for Gunships, break his tech 2 again. I don’t really need Zane to survive (he’s almost a liability) and drawing 50/50 to Marauder (instead of Steam Tank) would be cool to break tower as well, and even if I get Imp instead, I can just lay Steam Tank and then I’m one draw closer to a Gunship next turn.

Got Marauder, cool, bust it up :slight_smile:

Got Gunship, nice

My Thoughts

I’m really confused what his game here is… I have to guess he wants to insta-max Vir or bait me into a hero so he can go Zane + sharks? Neither really seems like a great idea… I’m going to just tech up and lay a blocker, and see what happens… I’ll tech a sharks of my own (in case of the Vir thing), but also bring GPT. See where it goes from there.

My Thoughts

Trashing my workers? That’s the game? Kind of an interesting idea… I think I can manage through that though. I brought Surprise Attack to bust up such shenanigans, if he does hit me with another Detonate I can have Zane roll in and cause some Havoc that way… Though I’m not sure I want to be THAT far behind in workers… Let’s see where he goes



#460

Thanks, without that gold, I wouldn’t have been able to afford both the 2nd Detonate and my Tech II. Shame I don’t have any left over for the Taxman to steal, though…

My Thoughts

Feels like breaking the tech 2 should be a no-brainer here, stay safe and heavy on the board, pressure his cards w/ my Graveyard + Imp. I’m grabbing the other DP and Vystari, with the hope that next turn is Vystari + GPT + attack and get Vandy maxed + tech 2, and then Meta 3 heroes on turn 6. I think I can probably pull it off, but we shall see



#462

I’ll resign this one here, GG. Detonate doesn’t provide value quickly enough to be worth rushing, it seems, especially against a hero-oriented strategy. I’ll try a different opening. You sticking with that build or changing it up?


#463

Oh I actually thought you had good momentum here! I’m surprised you didn’t tech Bloodlust or Kidnapping, seems like you could counter pretty hard doing that while having the inside track on tech 3. GG WP all the same!

This deck is fun but I kinda already knew it would be :wink: If you’re running the same deck but different cards, I’ll stay on it.

Otherwise, I’ll roll anew to…

[Truth]/Growth/Necro. The All-token special!


#464

I did once win a game using a Detonate rush, but I don’t think it’s a good fit for this particular build (and it seems unreliable in general). It seems to work out better when both can be played on turn 3. It might have also worked better if I had delayed my Tech II a turn.

I considered Bloodlust and Kidnapping, and I might try mixing them in at some point, but that would probably mean I’d aim for Maximum Anarchy (which Hardened Mox and Gilded Glaxx would happily survive, with 2x Glaxx breaking a building or two in the same turn, ideally).

But yeah, I haven’t given up on this build yet; I’m just trying different approaches in hopes of finding one that works. Start us off when ready.

Okay, this time I’m going with a 2 stage plan, and stage 1 is to focus heavily on Tech 0-1 Soldiers/Mystics and Chaos Mirror to swap Mox’s attack with something big (and preferably opposing).
