Against Imp, possibly Imp + Graveyard, I'll favor Knights and TResearch. If I draw 1 knight or Plasmo and TR, I'll have 4 runes with the last on from Fading Argo. with TR and none of the above, Prynn will do. Else, probably some agression with Battle Suits + Nullcraft, and preparing a solid TR on turn 4. Anyway I'll most probably 'stash' with Vir.

Could be KOTC+Seers again, mech token to follow? If so Brave Knight + Tower would be a decent set up.

Could've killed Vandy with Nullcraft + Battle Suits and midband Vir to prevent revenge kill, but that means skip worker. Although Future is by far the cheapest line with Purple, I'm afraid I won't pressure petE enough to mitigate the +2 gpt he'll have soon. So I just kill everything else. With Vir I'm sure to play Knight then TResearch on next turn, so getting down on cards isn't so bad.

Should’ve killed Vandy, even going low on workers :frowning: Anyway, what’s done is done. Now I must offer free kills to protect my heroes, and pray I can strike back decently on next turn. If he teched Shadow Blade, I’ll have a hard time, else I guess I can endure ? Luckily, no hero can jump in to help Vandy for now.


#26

Did you make a worker? If so, don’t think you have the $1 float.


#27

Why that ? I started with 7, spent 1 for worker, 1 for Vir, 2 for TResearch and 2 for Tinkerer, so I guess I float 1 ?

Oh yes, didn’t spot. Pretty dumb!

To break my Tech2, think he needs rune removal (TS, Seer) plus haste (Now!) plus Suits. May happen, but not so likely with Temporal Research in discard. So teching Zarramonde, as I can build Tech3 next turn if Tech2 stands, and have a good chance of drawing the big guy following turn. Also teching Cadet, as Cadet+max Oni walls up well if Tech2 is down.

Breaking tower is always good news. Now, I’ll have to deal with Tech IIs with no way to clear them out directly, but with Vir’s mech and my own tech II (or Mas prynn) approaching, I think it should be fine.

Here goes with Tech3 build, with likely draw of Zarra next turn. Various combos of TS/Seer/Now/Unphase/Suits and particularly Undo that allow break through to down one or two tech buildings or even my Base. But his hand size is only 2, so let’s see…

Zarramonde incoming… Or maybe that's just a decoy so I don't break Tech II? I see no way to hasten Zarramonde, save Drakk's maxband, so at worst, I can kill it straight with Knight + mech token; with the rest of the team I should blast his base. against Voidblocker I'll just Maxband Prynn, I suppose.

After draw: I had solid chances to get some draw, either from Hyperion(s) or R&D/Temporal Research. Nullcraft’s cool, if ever another Voidblocker stands in my way. I’d have liked a Now!/time spiral so I could just max Prynn, gain 1 Time Rune from time spiral or attack, and banish any patrollers left before rushing the base down.


#33

Which Tech II spec are you building?


#34

Present, sorry


#35

Do I get technician draw off Brave Knight kill and return to hand? I presume no because of “instead” in card wording.


#36

I suppose so, Brave Knight doesn’t effectively die, so I guess you don’t draw… Not absolutely sure though

Edit: I just check in the rules question topic, and indeed, you don’t draw because of instead (contrarily to Reteller of Truth)


#37

The big guy arrives, but may not be enough.

Crazily, even with Zarra arrival, my Base could fall this turn with various combos of Suits/Nullcraft/Tricycloid/Hyperion. Or close enough that could happen following turn (eg from Tricycloid or Unphase attacker). I’m killing Geiger in case of R&D.

He’s not, I just drew 2 hasty guys out of 2 cards…

I think Hyperion was my only way to blast your base this turn, but even without, I’d just destroy your tech III with Knight/Vir, and maybe summon Prynn for some unit trashing. Killing Geiger was a good pick though, wih 2x Now! and 2! R&D in my deck !


#39

GG, well played again. Don’t know whether trying for Tech3 was best shot at a win there. Timing ended up as fast as it could have been, but even then T6 Zarra wasn’t enough.


#40

Imho you paid the price of not patrolling Brave Knight on T4, maybe did you forget Readiness ? With BK as SQL I’d have had no choice but to trade badly, or stick to defense/tech II, but in that case Zarramonde would’ve crushed my board.

By the way, Brave Knight + Tower was pretty good a counter to Knights of the Undone; why not teching a second copy ? Paired with DP and Cadets, they may have dampered my aggro long enough for your Tech II plan to work out (pure guessing at this point).

(just as ever, I’m still willing to play if you want so ! Same specs or others, you choose)
