Zane turn gets me back a card. I guess Zane is vulnerable to Now! and a time rune remover, but I’d still be in good shape.

Just noticed you skipped making a worker on T3. Don’t know if that was intentional, but you wouldn’t be able to build Tech2 on T4 as you’ve 1 worker fewer than the 8 required.


#23

Yea I just realized too. Definitely not intentional, I was out of my wits -_-

Want to rewind or start another? This one looks pretty one-sided by now.

Yea lets start another. Good idea.

Thoughts

I can’t seem to find a good opener against red. I may have forced a Mox T1 without a good T2 hand to follow through. A Fading Argonaut would have been ideal here, otherwise Neo Plexus. Perhaps this wasn’t the best opening considering my T1 hand. I’m sticking with stewardess opener if I can draw her T3 then she’ll be useful, otherwise, T4 stewardess likely will lose value. He may be able to take my tech 1 out, but I think my best bet is to take that risk at this point.
– Drew Stewardess of the Undone. Now, all I need is for my Tech 1 to survive (maybe a 50/50 chance I’d say), and I’m in this game. Still, don’t like this opener-- too risky. Yeah, I’m almost certain a Fargo opener vs Mox given my T1 hand would’ve been better. Still have much to learn with purple

#30

Yeah Purple’s slow start is tough against Red’s aggro, though Mox makes it expensive for me to try to blast through. And you’ve the stronger Tech2s to look forward to.

I need to go down a card to keep Ogre alive and Jaina safe from possible Mox + Nullcraft + Stewardess. Teching 2xCrash Bombers, look to deliver a steady trickle of Base damage on top of the 4HP delivered here – first time I’ve tried one of these.

[/spoiler][/details]


#32

That’s true. If purple can hold out against red’s aggro without losing too much tempo, then its a good set-up. Seems red needs to make those early efficient trades, even as P2, in order to be in good position.

Dealing 2 dmg to Jaina puts petE in a position where he either goes tech 2 and maxes Jaina without worker, or leaves her open to a Nullcraft kill. A GPT would at least take out the NC, but should still be worth it on my end. Definitely will bring in Geiger if I can pull of the kill for the free levels. I’ll likely bring him in regardless. Somehow my tech 1 survived this turn. I feel him taking it out would have been his best move if possible. Now I can slowly regain tempo and go for tech 2 asap where purple shines.

3dmg to Base from Jaina this turn, and likely another 3 next turn, he’ll have real trouble stopping this rush. Teching 2xBugblatters for more Base pressure. Will follow up with Jaina direct damage spells, maybe Kidnapping if he goes Future for Void Stars (Hives would be more kidnap-resistant).

Teching 2 Tricycloids to deal with Jaina, who’ve I already dealt 1 dmg to thankfully. He’s taking a complete base race on from here. I’m suspecting he’ll bring out Jaina’s Burning Volley next turn with a good draw, to chip further away at my base, and maybe take out NC +/- Plexus, or even tech 2 if he wants. He may even skip tech 2 ? lets see. Tricylcoids + Now next turn will be great although I’m 1 gold short with Geiger and Worker. Killing Jaina regardless will be my priority.

If he has Tricycloid, Hyperion or Undo he’ll be killing Jaina this turn with levels to Geiger. So I’m skipping a worker to land 2HP Pillage hit on top of Jaina’s 3HP, try to close this out before he can get unpleasant Present stuff going. Teching 2xEmber Sparks.

Ouch-- he’s brought my base down to 6HP already, which is damn impressive. Red can be so explosive int hese base races, I’ve never thought of Pillage being used like that just for base dmg. Interesting Play. He has the upper hand for sure, but I have a shot still I think. I had a good draw here with TC and Now, and taking out his Tech 2. I could have had Neo Plexus deal 3dmg to his Tech 1 building, although I’m thinking the base dmg is more important at this point. Geiger in SQL is safest bet-- can’t let him break through. Lobber + Zane next turn would be pretty bad. I think I need 2 more turns and I’ll win this base race, although I don’t think, with 6HP, i’ll be around 2 turns. If geiger survies, max him out next turn + another TC.

editted: added Geiger’s level. Fixed thoughts-- crash bomber is a tech1!

With Geiger gone, I should take this providing I draw one of four Jaina spells.

[/spoiler][/details]


#39

I’ve Jaina spells in hand, so think it’s GG.


#40

Ah, damn. Yea nothing I can do to stop Jaina’s spells.

That was the first time I’ve had such a base race. The game moves much quicker than I thought. Not really sure what I could’ve done differently to stop you. WP, you’ve done red a good justice.

You’re playing surprisingly well with Red for “not having played much with them” previously =) I’m happy to keep these games going, switch red vs purple (see how you would play it), or try other monocolors if you want.


#41

Thanks – was also surprised how quickly the Base chipping happens when the Red cards fall right. Crash Bomber is a Tech1 by the way.

Happy to switch Red/Purple, see how it plays the other way around. Rando for starter – I rolled 86?


#42

I realized he was tech 1 afterward- makes sense. I’ve never used him but now see how good he can be.

Ok let’s switch it up. I rolled a 22 so you’re first
