Thoughts

Seems a tricky matchup, as his specs have ready answers to a number of plans I’d naturally follow. Versatile Style upgrade removal is effective against Might of Leaf ad Claw (aimed to activate rapidly with hasty red units) and also against a Mythmaking build (2/8 Boulder, 4/4 Galina). Red aggro approach will also fizzle against Rook, Rambasa Twins, etc.

Think my best plan is to aim for Blooming Ancient tech 2, with a build including units with double arrival (e.g. Birds Nest, Sharks, Giant Panda, Argagarg). Birds can use Chaos Mirror, Growth buffs and BA runes later on, so start with Rook/Bird tech now.

  1. Get gold (5)

If you don’t mind, could I reconsider this last move (will most likely change tech decision)?


#11

Sure, go ahead.


#12

Thanks. Ended up leaving the move unchanged, so over to you…

…apologies, reconsidering once again


#13

Will still stick with the move, as I can’t find any better answer to the double IPNs – but pretty sure I’ll be resigning after your next move. At which point, let me know if there was a better line I could have taken.
