(poor)attempt at mind-reading Nekoatl(Feral+peace+blood)

Feral peace blood, what does that say to me. Obvious things are maximize
Drakk w/ cadet + allies, potentially with behind the ferns as well.
Also possible, bugbladder combined with allies. Each of these also
pair well w/ Moss ancient, potentially executed via feral strike or
tech-lab alongside pirate-commander.

This is re-enforced by the super-eco turn 1, likely to help fund
the very pricey allies.

Last Turn

Plan - so I kind of want to do verdant tree, into allies, into insta-build
T2 + might of leaf and claw. This will be tricky though, b/c my opponent
is trying something similar I think. The difference is I can salt neko’s
earth (w/ nature!)

FYI - I think your tower is supposed to cost 4, b/c the
broken-suit penalty is on your first building (even if it
isn’t a tech building). Ya, pg.12 of the rulebook, tech
building or add-on (so you could play verdant tree at face
value even though that is a “building”).

Anyway, if you want to re-do your turn thats cool, or if you
want to just build your T1 for 2.g thats cool too.

(poor) mind-reading Nekoatl(Feral+peace+blood)

Based on the play I’ve seen, just a super defensive eco-focused style.
Something I hadn’t considered before, Knights main drawback is their
cost, but if you have tons of gold their card economey is fantastic.
This is a turn away at least though (skip T1). At this point I just
need to not get complacient that I’m against mono-green. Bloodlust +
Drakks max-band give Neko’s deck some explosive potential.

Last Turn

Bumped up Nature Reclaims to cut-off Rich Earth as soon as possible.
Heros hall ensures I can use it even if Cali remains (also, since I
am planning on delyaing T2 to be a surprise, the extra hero-flex is
good). Centars are just good bodies, and since I’m expecting a bunch
of minis overpower is a good choice. Tower means I will need ferns to
keep my own minis alive.

(poor) mind-reading Nekoatl(Feral+peace+blood)

Cadet was expected, verdant tree was not. Feral, and maybe peace,
seem like the only specs that would benefit from healing, but that
doesn’t make a lot of sense to me. Also I don’t have any massive
tech lock down that would make insta-build super important (ie
quakes). At a guess, this will be for a T3 rush around worker 10.

Last Turn

So the other way I thought of playing this turn is have panda clear
young treant and have the merfolk trade. This would have been a
double blow to Neko’s income, having to pay for workers again plus
losing the psudo-worker is -2.g per turn. The trouble is it would
have left Cali on 1 health and midori as my only blocker. This seemed
a bit too thin now that T1’s are out. Also, this way I can spend 4.g
on a T2 unit next turn card free and get some hand size back.

*a bit arbitray, but I consider the “cost” of the wisp from panda as it arriving
exhausted which, since it is a non-permenant effect, is “free” is this counting
^since cadets are 0.g they don’t add to kill totals …which seems wrong.
I wonder if I should add card trackers for army and kill?

Teching Knights to try to replenish hand size over time. As disappointing as it is to lose Rich Earth, I’m actually relieved to see a Moment’s Peace pass on, as it means at least one of my Garrisons will be safe from getting trashed.

Hmm… so that is anoying. Worst part is the merfolk kill
ruins my initial plan. Also the base damage from Tower switch
is unfortunate but not terrible. Pushed back Might to give myself

Teching up because I have no units left to block with, so I need a 2nd hero. I’m tempted to sacrifice Onimaru as a Technician, but as Elite with Tower support, he threatens to take down Calamandra, should she attack (though of course Forest’s Favor would allow her to survive). Since I have a Tech II now, I’ll go for Garrisons to start the engine.

Sorry for the delay, was traveling for new years. Although if
I’m being honest you have pretty well disrupted my original plan
so a fair amount of thought and adjustment was also required.

(poor) mind-reading Nekoatl(Feral+peace+blood)

I assume peace is for barriks, hopefully moments peace will
address this.

Hey, I just noticed, at least that last turn involved a skipped worker

Last Turn

So my plan is blown out of the water. At this point the goal
is to stall into tech 3 using moments peace. I think my T2 will
be Feral, b/c Moss is cheaper than T-rex, but the true goal
is feral strike.

Looking back, I think it would have been better to do the trade on
turn 3. I ended up losing my units anyways and with ferocity there
was little cost to Neko

So the other way I thought of playing this turn is

  • 5.g cali casts allies for frogs
  • 3.g centar
  • 2.g verdant tree
    …this plan floods the patrol zone. W/ ferns in play this isan’t
    as good as it could be, but it also lets me threaten a counter strike
    w/ frogs (they would all die, but I could take some units off the field)

The way I resolved this is… I can’t really justify this actually, but
this seems to give me more options.

  • verdant tree + my eco lets me insta build T3, which is scary
  • tiger + cali staying alive will give me 2 stealth units to kill cali
  • centar will let me clear some of the chumps, which is ok
  • not visible, but assuming a massive barricks build up, I can
    moments peace to freeze that.

I have had some amazing draws this game, so I’d imagine defending has been rough… but I feel like you might be starting to turn things around. In any case, no apology is necessary.

Because my Tower can only detect one, I don’t want to leave 2 stealth threats in play, so I’ll sacrifice my Ironbark to remove the Tiger. I’m teching Sergeants to complete the draw engine combo.

The holidays feel great, but there is no doubt they are

(poor) mind-reading Nekoatl(Feral+peace+blood)

So the double worker skip really feels significant, but I’m not
sure what it means (even floated a gold).

Next turn I’m expected Oni to trade into tiger, Drakk brought out
and a massive atk. I don’t think my T2 or tower survives, but
hopefully I am able to bring out Midori w/ peace to cut that off
the turn after, then use my massive eco to power allies and centars
into T3 and feral strike to close(?)

Last Turn

So I’m pretty sure I’ve lost this one. I’m not completly out,
and Neko is basically all-in-ing on this strategy right now so
if I can string things along long enough the wheel may come back
around for me w/ a peace-lock down into T3, but I’d say the odds
are less than 1 in 3.

Looking back, I think the issue here is that I was too passive
(which is a known flaw in my play-style). The place to preassure,
especially against an off-suit deck, is when they build T1 / pay the
penalty. Trouble is there was a 5HP ironbark in SL at that point,
so I’m not sure what I was to do with that (mid-cali + rampant growth to
clear it I guess, but that would mean not getting rich earth). Also
I’m not sure if the nature reclaims was worth it. Given that Neko has
stopped working there may be a smell of blood in the water, but this also
could be the “darkest before the dawn” moment.

Plan

holding off b/c w/ the tree kill I can’t build T3 yet and I don’t
want the bloat blocking my centars & peaces

(poor) mind-reading Nekoatl(Feral+peace+blood)

So not what I expected.

Last Turn

The other way I thought of running this turn was

  • cali brings in a pred tiger (SL)
  • centar (tech)
  • rebuild tower
  • ferns
    …the thinking is that the combo of Cali + centar + ferns forces
    neko to deal w/ either centar or cali, b/c otherwise I kill their
    cali next turn and wind goes out of the sail on this strat. The
    trouble is it is also a bit of a “treading water” strat.

This way

  • boosted allies
  • centar
  • cali kills knight
    …at least I’m cleaning the board somewhat and developing an ability
    to do more next turn. It is vulnerable to ferocity though

Third way… K, I talked myself into this one

  • allies (beast) (SL)
  • centar (scav)
  • cali summons pred tiger (lookout)
    …I’m not as vulnerable to ferocity this way, still threatening
    counter-atk next turn (forcing blockers?) and keeps cali at full
    health (since I lost out on both peace’s last turn).

…well I just realized the only way to avoid lethal is build a tower and kill a night; lets see if they see it too (I’m guessing yes)

Plan

Next turn, hopefully, I will be able to play my hand and get some
damage in, setting up for T3. Holding off tech until b/c T2 busted.

Dealing with those patrollers looks like a pain, so I’d like to just ignore them, but my stealthy units only have a combined 10 attack versus your base’s 11 HP. But, a bit of juggling gets around that problem:

Thoughts

Alternately, I could have just played Forest’s Favor on a Soldier instead of turning it into a worker, but that’s less interesting and would have been counterable by a Tower, whereas this is not and doesn’t rely on the lucky draw.

"

Well fought, but I guess there was just too much pressure to deal with after all. Sorry for the extreme luck on my part. Do you want a rematch as player 1?

Edit: In retrospect, it might have been worth spending a Nature Reclaims to get rid of that Behind the Ferns, just because it was giving you so much trouble.


#55

GG, you also could have discarded 2 cards to give cali stealth, which would have given you 14 dam. I realized after I posted that the only way to block lethal was kill a knight and rebuild tower.

I would be up for a 2nd game, I do like to play them in pairs. You can read my thoughts if you want, it was interesting. I was planning on using allies + verdant tree to insta-build T2 and play might of leaf and claw and swarm you w/ 6/6 frogs. The trouble is nature reclaims put me a turn behind and I started behind as P2 and your double-ferocity hit a turn or two earlier then I was ready.

Let me reset my board, T1P1 incoming.

Last Turn

So normally I like to build tech-1 on T2 and set myself up for
a possible double drop of T1 units, (which means not forcing the
deck cycle early). However I think green is deffensive enough
(and slow enough on my opponents end) that I can get away w/
everything 1 turn delayed, square away my eco now, and circle of
life into some powerful T2 units early then Neko will be ready
for it. Again, I’m guessing they will try to win at T1, so I’m
looking to clear the decks next turn + build a T1, and then
hopefully keep even until I can get a big rhino out.

Even if Rich Earth gets trashed next turn, it’s still a $2 for $2 trade and protects a Garrison. Teching Cadets, 'cuz free units. I am a bit worried about Calamandra being taken down by a stealthy Ironbark, but with the $1 multicolor tax, building a Tower would mean skipping Rich Earth… and summoning Calamandra for Behind the Ferns would be an obstacle to trashing my upgrade.

mind-reading Nekoatl

(Feral+peace+blood)

So I missed the rich-earth play first time I looked at this. That plus merfolk
== heavy eco-play. I think I am going up the same thing as last time.

Interesting question, cadets and ferns seemed to be the big things before (neither
of which is very expensive), so the gold sink is prob supposed to be knights
(and I just didn’t seem them much before b/c I disrupted eco).

at a guess, I will be facing
cadet + cadet
knight + fern
bomber + garrison
drill + drill/bomber
drum + ?

Means cadets should be hitting next, and ferns soon after…
I think I’m cool with that, if I galina + huntress next round that is 5HP, and
still leaves room for a T2. Turn after, CoL a damaged/exhausted T1 into a rhino
blocker just in time for ferns / knight and I’m in a good position to preassure
before garrisons pop. At that point I should also have peace to lock-down in
case there is ever a big garrison explosion. My push is a combo of flying/stealth
units/heros and try to land feral-strik on T3 to fin …seems like a plan.

Last Turn

So original plan had been to bring in Midori instead of tiger, however this
gives me the same atk power and I think playing anything but Cali early game is
a bit of a tell. This way I have lots of attackers next round so I should be
able to do some serious damage. Also w/ the 1.g transfer ability on shambler
I can atk and then get double work out of the runes. Also w/ this set-up I can
potentially get 5atk on ironbark or cub (w/ mid-midori) to wreck tech buildings.

I would have liked to send treant to the mines, but it looks like it will need
to be verdant tree (need to keep my T1 around for expected heavy preassure these
next 2 rounds). Luckly w/ circle coming in hand after next, I’m cool double
dropping next round if I need to and still get a big rhino the turn after.

Plan

X Galina + Tiny-B
