[post-mortem note 2016.10.30 - I made two critical mistakes on turn 2 that ultimately cost me the game. The first was teching economy vs. rushdown. I failed to appreciate that Vandy, on turn 1, represented a game-ending Metamorphosis on turn 4. (I mean I knew she could do that, it just didn’t work when I tried it in my game against Mooseknuckle so I underestimated the threat.) The other error was failing to notice that Vandy + Thieving Imp + a worker costs 6 gold altogether.]

The Basilisk has deathtouch, so Garth would be dead instead of with 1 damage. Is that what you want?


#15

Basilisk does not deal damage because of deteriorate, the 1 dmg is from your tower


#16

Ah, that would do it. Did you include the 1 damage Crawler, Vandy, and Garth each take from the tower?

Everything is updated
