Trying out a new combination. Ideally I'd like to use Sparring Partners to boost my Nullcraft, and eventually to feed tokens into the Drill Sergeant machine. Don't love that this deck doesn't have as many options to deal with runaway heroes & units as Past would as starter, but I'd like to try out Temporal Distortion later as a way to crank out more characters for Drill Sergeant

His specs are pretty strong, particularly at Tech2 in which either Present or Peace wins the long game against mine. So I need to be aggressive early, try to preempt an straight Tech2 battle. Vandy vs Grave is an stable setup, so Teching Shadow Blade to try to get a hero kill, and IPN for presence.

Shadow Blade sets up OK value trade, stops him going up a card, and gets rid of Grave.

Floating 2 gold to give enough next turn to play IPN (or Imp if he goes down on cards), Tech 2 Demonz + Tech lab Blood. That set up gives decent blockers (Voidblocker, IPN), cheap attack (Crashbarrows, Gliders), and can aim for Tech3 Zarramonde.

Unfortunate discard, as Brave Knight was the card I wanted. Another route here would be to play a hero to preserve a card, but there are plenty of ways to remove the sparring partner and kill the hero + max level Vandy, so let’s not do that. Instead, will throw Sparring Partner out there as fodder, and shoot for replacing the card

Awkward, don’t want to leave SP to add runes to a hero or a strong Present unit. But also don’t want to give him the draw to accelerate Present, nor leave Vandy on 2HP by killing. I’ve Crashbarrow and Voidblocker in next hand, so prefer to leave alone. Feels like I’m behind here, may struggle to get a tech 3 build in.

Well for one thing, realize he built Tech2 Peace not Present, so forget previous thoughts. I’d also forgotten SP can add a runes to Nullcraft, as the ability isn’t a “buff”.

Though I’ve good cards in hand (Voidblocker, Crashbarrow), don’t see a good line here. Crashbarrow + Vandy can kill Oni and break his Tech2, but he maxes Grave to sword Voidblocker, then kills Vandy with SP + Nullcraft, leaving him 4/5 Grave + $2 unit vs my empty board, pretty bad. Instead I’m clearing his board and getting hero levels, but expect his Peace engine will swamp me quickly. Teching Metamorphosis and Zarramone as best chances.

Crashbarrow came through as I thought it might, but was hoping Sac the Weak wasn’t there for Nullcraft. The real problem is an impending Zarramonde. I have no idea how to deal with that situation

Good draw with Metamorphosis, and full effect with no Tower to block a Demon. With his tech buildings down, I’ll block with the Demons and look to build Tech 3 next turn.

You need Grave on the board to play Reversal. With Tech2 down, you need to sacrifice Geiger first.

Oops. Should be fixed now, had to rewind & change turn accordingly


#18

Vandy has resist 1, so $4 to target with Reversal

ok will skip the worker then- will edit later, feel free to proceed. shouldn’t impact your turn unless you’re doing something weird to my workers :slight_smile:
