Good points. And I did forget about BK’s readiness.

Happy to continue with this deck, either against mono-Purple or a different one.


#42

I’ll keep monopurple as well ! your turn to start :slight_smile:

Another Brave Knight question, please – if he attacks and is then buffed by Boot Camp, does he lose the ability to patrol that turn? I’m guessing that readiness ability applies to exhaustion after combat but not exhaustion for other reasons, meaning he can’t patrol in this case


#45

You’re right - Readiness only prevents exhaustion from attacking, not from other costs/effects.

Scav bonus allows me to play Imp this cycle. Glad to apply some early card pressure, as he may want to double play from hand next few turns when he puts down Suits or KOTC/Plasmo.

Teching Dark Pact and Cadet. For $3 prefer Cadet+Tower to Brave Knight, as it makes Nullcraft less of a pain.

No TR play this time, and Plexus rather than Mox or Fargo? Maybe I got a lucky discard hit with the Imp. Decent turn for me, get to play out Cadet and Tower as hoped and kill the SQL.

Teching Brave Knight and Crashbarrow, looking to use hand size control of Brave Knight and Dark Pact to offset tendency of Blood to run out of cards. Would also look to Graveyard or Garrison if it weren’t for Assimilate.

Friendly card split this cycle, both Dark Pact and Crashbarrow in next turn’s hand where they’re useful. Teching more hasty Blood stuff, Glider and 2nd Crashbarrow. He’s in a tough spot, with no Tech1 unit left to bring out this cycle.

Getting all the good draws this game, get the second Crashbarrow after the reshuffle.



#51

The longer I think about my options, the clearer I see I’ve none. I don’t know whether you’re going for Crashbarrows or MetamorphOnimaru, but I can’t deal with any of those ! GG !

Looking at your hand: double Crashbarrow :smiley: definitely can’t stop that !


#52

GG! I had friendly draws throughout, and see that Imp had a lucky hit on Fargo (who would have survived where Plexus didn’t).

Happy to continue with this deck if you are.


#54

…or on second thoughts would switch Nijutsu in for Peace, for [Demon]/Ninja/Blood


#55

Yep, I planned to play Fargo + Vir/Geiger, and stick to that plan, but like 5 minutes after posting I was “oh my, that loses to Deteriorate now”, and well, here I was.

I thought you’d tech Metamorphosis as soon as T3, and play Deter -> Imp kills Plexus -> midband Vandy -> Vandy kills Vir and maxbands -> Heroes’ Hall, as I just reshuffled and couldn’t have any option against that. Max 6/7 Oni on T4 would’ve been a formidable threat. Well, to tell the truth, double Crashbarrows are just as frightening !

Edit: I’m still up for some games, but I’ll wait for tomorrow to play my turn, so I can avoid instaloss plays :stuck_out_tongue:


#56

I did think of the Vandy kills Vir option. Would have ended up needing to doom Imp and Nullcraft (that would have dealt 3 to Vandy). So I’d have 4/2 Vandy + Cadet vs whatever you spent your spare $8 on, which didn’t seem so great. Didn’t think of teching Meta as well, can see that would be a strong T4/5 play, though guess I’d be skipping the T4 worker to play Oni too.

You to start against [Demon]/Ninja/Blood.


#57

Nullcraft being untargetable, you couldn’t boost it, that was a big issue for me, for this very reason. But anyway, you chose the best option, seeing how fast the game ended after that :slight_smile:

Wasn’t sure on that, as Vandy’s max has a target but no “Buff” keyword. Does that allow +2/2 and doom to target Nullcraft?

See how the deck plays with Ninjas rather than Peace. Same idea really, head for Crashbarrows/Gliders, with cycling if possible from Dark Pact, and with a decent Tech1 to hold the board (IPN here, rather than Brave Knight).



#59

Oh, you’re right, and I’m wrong. For some reason I was sure that Geiger’s maxband fizzled on Nullcraft, but it doesn’t - good to know !

Didn’t really consider when autoplaying Imp that it’s a pretty expensive play if bounced by Stewardesses. In fact Stewardess + Now! wipes my board with levels to Geiger. Consolation is that emptier board will make my IPNs bigger (teching 2 here).
