[casual] Persephone vs Legion

well, imo the problem was starting with orpal (that tbh doesn’t do much, had I summoned mox i would understand but otheriwse…) then investing so much gold on him for tbh little effect. Imo delaying tech too didn’t help, exp cuz stewardess. Question: why didn’t you summon somethin and sacrifice it with orpal midband to defuse the glaxx? Should have avoided the tech I destruction.
As for the next game, sure. I’ll play red^^ your time to start

I played Orpal because I usually play either Vandy or Garth first (because they are better) and I wanted to try doing something different. I also just lost a game (partially) because I failed to deal with a Mox and really, really wanted not to lose for the same reason twice. Turn incoming… !

Thoughts

Blockers beat haste. Firehouse (and Bloodburn) beat skeletons. Rambaster 1-shots Graveyard. Red starter has no patrollers that can survive 2/1 armorpiercing, but I don’t want to trade down attacking into patrollers. Jandra is probably my best play next turn; I’ll also probably have Deteriorate. Twilight Baron beats everything Red has except Kidnapping. Tech Twilight Baron + Bone Collector, maybe going into Carrion Curse?

edit: remembered Pillage can steal my gold. I think I’m okay spending 1g to lock you into a hero early + go down a card?

edit: never mind. let the play stand as originally posted.
edit2: incorrectly listed worker’d card in discard.

Options: Lv. 3 Vandy + Deteriorate the dog. You can’t quite kill Vandy out of Squad Leader, because you can’t afford both Scorch and midband on Drakk. But you can make me spend a lot of resources protecting her for the rest of the game. We both stay at 5 cards, but I’m up a gold!

Jandra or Thieving Imp: leaves you with a gold to steal, and two units + midband Drakk for 7 total attack. Yeeeaah no.

Bone Collector is a more dangerous Kidnapping target than Hooded Executioner, but on the other hand it lets me attack while leaving a skeleton on defense. Vs Jaina would definitely take Twilight Baron instead.

edit: forgot to draw my hand!
edit2: forgot to update gold/worker counts + put tech building on board

Slightly concerned that I may be drawing both Tech Is on turn 3 at higher-than-chance rates.

There’s not much I can do to play around Kidnapping, so let’s hope you don’t have it.

If I had teched Hooded Executioner (and still drawn Deteriorate) I could have killed Drakk. Something to think about for future games? (also if I had drawn Sacrifice the Weak in my original hand)

sorry for the late reply, thought about this a lot. your split is too good while mine sucked hard. I can’t stop you from wiping out my board and keep getting an advantage. I’ll resign here. GG mate, thank you for the games

Good game, thanks for playing with me.

Noting for reference: I forgot that Vandy’s tutor ability requires you to discard a card. I’d only have 4 cards in hand.
