So, haven’t played in forever. Not sure what to do vs Green exactly. I’d like to try out Ninjutsu but I respect Rook too much not to run him out early. Can’t be too reactive when you are P1 haha. For now, I’ll just build up when I can and try to exploit good opportunities.

Ok, so he’s ramping! Graves is adept at killing upgrades with his Versataile Style and Martial Mastery makes it easier to find. Of course, since I already have Rook, I will need a Heroes’ Hall. Which will telegraph everything I’m doing. Still, the sooner I take Rich Earth off the board, the more I can hit his econ, which is why I was willing to go down to 4 cards this turn. Next turn will be interesting and it can involve bringing out Graves or levelling Rook and bashing his tech I. It all depends on what he does…

Cheeky Grappling Hook play! He has to push through 2 wisps and a young Treant.

A couple things:

-Summoning Arg at level 1 costs 2 gold, then Maxxing Arg from level 1 costs 4 gold (6 total)
-Arg cannot use his Tap ability the turn you summon him unless you give him haste

Sidenote: Funny that Aged Sensei can give his bonus to Heroes, while Arg is limited to Units.

Sorry. Forgot I didn’t hire him last turn.

Well, that is a lot of units out of nowhere! I won my 50/50 and found Versatile Style off of Martial Mastery, plus not summoning Graves after building a Heroes’ Hall would be strange. Dumping gold into my heroes can give me an avenue for rebuilding my hand. I think Graves is safe, after all I saw his hand. He has 3 points of power he can use to attack - 2 from the Panda and 1 from Arg. He doesn’t have any pump spells in hand. If he wants to turtle up with Wisps, I can use Sparkshot on Graves to make that difficult. If he doesn’t want to patrol with much, Rook can level and walk past. I figured a Basilisk was coming, so I tech’d in Entangling Vines and I want to get some value out of my tech building so I also tech’d a Rambasa.

He can kill a bunch of patrollers (including Arg) but he’ll have to sacrifice at least one hero to do it. To clear it all, he’ll Probably lose both. Too bad about Arg, though.

This turn was a bit awkward because I didn’t want to play Martial Mastery and draw my Rambasa too early, plus a number of the other cards would have been awkward. I did draw into my Entangling Vines immediately, which gave me a great round of attacks though I still couldn’t take down a tech building. I’m leaving him firmly on the defensive. Growth is a bit puzzling since typically MoLaC is the win-con, but I have already shown my Versatile Style to be a counter. Maybe he’s gunning for tech 3? Guargum is a monster, but I have been chipping away at his tech buildings. I feel confident I can smash at least one next turn with midband Rook. Maybe I’m underestimating some of Growth’s other tech II options… Regardless I don’t see many good counters to YLD so far, and I love going for superheroes in White.

Also, just for your own recordkeeping: Your Tech I should be at 3 HP, your Tech II should now be at 4 HP.

What a weird turn. I was able to do everything I wanted…no not even close. That Rhino was scary and I had to level Graves to remove it immediately. He could have easily wrecked a Rambasa defense. I also really wanted to build Tech II before I cycled to get a chance at some YLD fun, but due to his smart patrolling, that prevented me from making a worker this turn. I don’t feel that bad because I can operate on less gold than him (and he also skipped worker!). I tech’d a couple more tech II cards to give me a high density of finding something worthwhile next hand. I am impressed at how much work the white deck can do with just its heroes and a couple starter units!

The Rhino is back and I don’t think I can kill it this turn…blehh. It was a great draw because I got 3/4 of my Tech II cards, but it was kinda bad that I drew Versatile Style and Snapback, neither of which I want to worker. Snapback shines if he tries to go for a hero-centric carry with Midori or Cal, whereas Versatile Style is mostly reduced to having a counter in case he decides to go for MoLaC at some point. Of course, the threat of Versatile Style is more important than the actual card, and he knows I have it, but I am also concerned about hand-size. Next turn I would like to draw Sensei’s Advice for the 2 YLD, but I mostly want to hit my next cycle ASAP so drawing 4 is much better than 3. Martial Mastery can also help facilitate this and give me a peek at his hand.

I wasn’t expecting fliers. And Growth doesn’t have any answers aside from Arg’s elemental. Time for Circle of Life shenanigans I guess.

I think the Rhino should have taken 5 damage from L7 Graves, so he should have 4 health remaining. Same issue with Midori, he should have taken 4 from Elite YLD and have 1 health remaining. If that’s correct, I’ll take my turn!

Posting this turn now, since I’ll be gone for the rest of the day!

Midori is a beast, but luckily my YLD defense was pretty strong. Unfortunately I still haven’t gotten to break his Tech buildings. I don’t think I went wide enough this game. On the bright side, 2 max level heroes and I can resummon and max Graves next turn (which means another sword rune in 2 turns!!). I don’t think he can deal with Rook and Earthquake is looking really strong to close this game out, I probably should have done 1 point of base damage with Smoker last turn, not the tech building. I tech’d in a Martial Mastery to help find one of the 2 EQs after cycling. Sets will get me to 5 cards and then one of the Masteries means I could look at 7 cards next turn! The whole deck is only 11 cards, so I think I have a good chance of getting off an EQ next turn, which will set him back considerably since Green heroes aren’t that great on defense, except Arg, who just died.
