[Casual] Nekoatl [Past/Future]/Peace vs. Dreamfire [Finesse]/Demonology/Growth


#63

I’ll resign it here; losing Grave means I can’t stop Meta. I kinda botched that game, but upon further consideration, it was a fools errand to begin with.

While thinking about how to defend against unstoppable Demon heroes, I got excited about the idea of getting a Lawbringer Gryphon and Lord of Shadows in play, along with Bone Collectors and Skeletal Lords. Then, I would just let you break my tech buildings and add-ons, and not rebuild them, and I could just ignore the heroes as they would have no target to attack. Skeletons would invisibly snipe key targets to protect the Gryphon, and when I got enough of them, I could use the Skeletal Lords to pull in more units bypassing tech requirements.

The problem is, you could easily drop an Eyes of the Chancellor before I got to that point, and shut down the whole operation before it could even get started. So, I’m scrapping that build for the time being. If you’re game to try the [Necromancy]/Growth/Blood I was thinking of earlier, here’s my turn 1:

I’d rather face Arg than Garth on T1 every single time. The $1 saved on making a skeleton evens out with the extra cost on Deteriorate/StW.

That’s a pretty optimistic patrol by Nekoatl, considering the neutral starter has 3 cards for clearing a 1 hp patroller from hand.

Star-crossed Starlets are lower tech, so one of them would have to die instead.

Right… I’ll go for the Scavenger, as you have lots of workers and few cards.

Yeah, there’s no way I’m gonna be able to turn that around, GG. I’d thought Bloodlust + Wight would be a strong answer to Meta threat, with Nether Drain as a stall tactic where necessary, but that doesn’t work if I can’t withstand the substantial early-game pressure you’re packing long enough to get a Tech II card in play. I have one other approach in mind to try, if you’re up for it.

Sure thing.
