[spoiler]As P1, I should probably bring early pressure, though with the green starter, he’s uniquely equipped to deal with it. It was really tough to decide which hero to play. I’d like to get Orpal out early, but he puts the least pressure on the board. I want to choose the option that’s most likely to deter him playing a hero. As P2 with Cala, he can potentially patrol a 3/4 hero in SQL. Oni hits the hardest, and with the sensei he’s threatening to swing as a 4/4 next turn, or even a 5/5 if I go nuts and level him. Grave threatens to level, then swing as a 4/5. Neither of them can actually kill a SQL lvl 2 Cala, but either of them could if I had Grappling Hook. So really Oni is threatening Grappling Hook+swing, and Grave is threatening Grappling Hook+midband+swing. The question is which of those threats he respects more. The secondary question is which hero I want out on turn 3. I dig the fast midband of grave, and Reversal is a strong early card. On the other hand, I love Boot Camp (it’s the main reason Oni is in this codex). I unfortunately will not have a 1-drop I can play next turn, so I’m probably going with Tech 1 rather than Heroes’ hall. The best targets for boot camp are Plague Spitter and my other heroes, so I’ll probably tech something like Spitter+Sparring Partner on T2, and Boot camp+something on T3. I’m not sure, though. I might actually head for Discipline Tech II with Training Ground, rather than Disease tech II with Plague Lab. Hmmm… I think I’m going with Oni turn 1, though I’m uncomfortable about it.

You know what, in retrospect, I wish I’d picked Grave. Reversal is a strong answer to 2 of his 3 tech 1 threats (Basilisk and Centaur), and the third (Fencer) is probably best handled with, Idk, Rambasa Twin? Killing his heroes to prevent it being buffed? Hmm… Nimble Fencer+Rampant Growth seems like a strong turn 3 tempo play I’ll have to figure out how to deal with. Martial mastery might have helped to at least see it coming, maybe.

Now I’m wondering if I can justify building both tech 1 and Heroes’ Hall next turn. That gives me a lot of options for turn 3. I’m still not sure if I have a way to prepare for all of his potential T3 plays, though. He has really strong tech 1. I mean, I have pretty strong tech 1 myself, but I still feel his is significantly stronger. Maybe my best option is to build a heroes hall and tech something like Carrion Curse+Boot Camp, relying on card advantage and Orpal’s control prowess to deal with his threats.

White starter with T1 Aged Sensei draw is pretty tough to face. Couldn’t see a unit and/or Hero open that doesn’t lose out if he has Grappling Hook in his T2 hand. So doing nothing other than Building Tech 1. Can play Young Treant next turn for a 1/3 chance of drawing a Tech 1 card (eg from 2 x Tiny Basilisks).

So he didn’t give me a lot of information with that turn. On the other hand, he didn’t apply much pressure, either. I’m not sure whether to go with Savior monk+Tech I or Tech I + Heroes’ hall. In any case, I think I’m teching General’s Hammer to take advantage of his vulnerable Tech I. I think I’m going with Boot Camp+General’s Hammer and a Heroes’ hall to keep him off of his tech 1.

Hmm…$3 on Safe Attacking + Heroes Hall rather than immediate board presence has taken the pressure off. So don’t need to build the Tower I’d expected on.

Tiny Basilisks will be a good answer to a Hero-based approach, and his Heroes Hall also stops him building a Tower against Cal’s stealth. So teching 2xTiny Bs and playing Young Treant to see if I draw one this turn [I didn’t]. Still have the gold for Playful Panda, Merfolk Prospector and Cal with $1 float. Guaranteed to draw at least one Basilisk next turn and both if he gives me the tech bonus.

Not worried by General’s Hammer breaking Tech 1, I’d use Cal’s stealth to kill Oni and summon Tigers while I catch up on Tech buildings.

Though I keep wanting to try a different Tech 2 choice than Balance with this deck, I seem to end up there the few times I’ve played it. In this case, Mimics provide a good answer to Discipline’s YLDs; Mimics + Potent Basilisks provide an untargetable combo against Disease’s targeted runes; and Mimics + Fairie Dragon or Midori maxband provide flying to hit a Peace engine. Teching Mimic and Feral Strike, and let’s see what spec he chooses.

[/spoiler][/details]


#7

Should be 2/3, since she took 2x -1/-1 runes from Orpal.


#8

Also, where’d that basilisk come from?


#9

I think he meant to play the Basilisk and have less float, but forgot to put it and cost into his actions.


#10

HRight on all counts, edited in now. Forgot to enter and pay for the Basilisk. Also forgot Orpal would deal -2/-2 that would stick when Cal levelled up (would have played the turn differently if I’d remembered). Sorry, shouldn’t play/post so late in the day!

The terrible draws continue. I’m not saying my strategy was perfect, and I might well have lost anyway, but the draws are killing me. anyway, doing my best to survive. With no way to clear his board, no Tech I unit to block with, and no Orpal, I’m definitely losing a hero to basilisk. This way I get to decide which one. Hopefully my patrol row is sufficient to keep Grave alive and my buildings standing, but we’ll have to see. I wanted to move to Tech II this round, and maybe I still should tech in some Tech II stuff, since I won’t be able to play it until T7 (probably) if I don’t. I’m guaranteed to have a Crypt Crawler next turn, and maybe that along with Grave can help me stabilize and build Tech II. I think I’m going to stick with what I’ve got, though, and hope that Technician draws/Boot Camp can get me tech II by T6. I need the units for now. Actually, Strike that, I’m teching in a Training Ground.

My last turn was pretty dumb, voluntarily landing -2/-2 on Cal. Still, maybe that makes her less of target for Grave’s sword or SnapBack, could hang around long enough for Feral Strike? I’ve also got a crummy split this cycle, both cards I want next turn (Mimic, Feral Strike) in this hand. Still overall in good board and econ shape, so Tech 3 build could be on next turn. Teching a Potent B and T Rex.

Adding to my garbage hand, I drew the T Rex off the technician draw, so won’t be able to play it this cycle. At least the lack of good units to play leaves me with an easy choice to build Tech 3 this turn. Teching Moment’s Peace and Moss Ancient (untargetable Tech 3).

I’m assuming you meant for the basilisk to target Safe Attacking, so I torched it.

Again I have no tech II. This time, though, neither does he (heh, heh). I think I have a strong chance of winning this one. If I’d teched differently, I’d skip tech II and just go for the kill, but Half my deck is dead if I don’t build it, so build it I shall.

Great play ! Think you missed that my Tech 1 goes too, as it was as 2HP. So my Base is at 8HP.

I did miss that! I teched General’s Hammer on T2 with the express purpose of breaking that, but never found an opportunity to play it.

I expect a resignation here. He can’t survive this for much longer. I was 1 shy of lethal here if I’d played Snapback instead of Tech II, and hit his base with both heroes, but this eliminates any chance he might have conceivably had to mount a defense.
