Thoughts

I was originally thinking to try the base race strat, although I’m not able to clear his board enough to make it worthwhile. I could have sidelined mox with Jaina, traded Plexus with BRO, and hit his base for 3 with Makeshift Rambaster and 2 with Pillage with patrolling bombaster in lookout (to force skipping a worker if Stewardess+BS to kill Jaina), but that would leave me with 1 card, and it would be too hard to come back from that. I think I’ve learned that in order to successfully go for a base race, you need some opening in the beginning for tempo, which his patrolling 2 units prevented. I lost the base race last game, since on my P1T2, I had only Plexus and BS in play, giving him a clear opening. Instead, I’ll go for a more standard GPT/lobber tech, with plans for Blood or Anarchy tech 2.

why not pillaging after bombaster to deal 2?


#48

Makes sense. I went back and forth in my turn that I forgot about that. If petE is ok with it, I’ll change the order to deal 2 damage to his base.

I guess he’s holding back gold to build Tech2 next turn. Likely Blood, in which case he could be playing Crasharrows as early as T4. Pillage robbery also means I won’t have the gold both to play Stewardess and build Tech2.

Teching Hyperion and a second Argonaut (for Tech1 play if my Tech2 is down).

Not a great hand. Not able to protect Jaina well with current board and hand, so best bet is to use her for patrolling bonuses in likey case she dies (he needs a NC or Now!). Tech 2 Anarchy with plan for Steam Tanks, and maybe kidnapping x2 next turn with tech 3 rush.

Anarchy not as immediately scary as Blood, but will be hard to stop this ending badly with Gunships.

Thought about delaying tech2 by a turn – I’d get free hero levels off the hero kill (eg to play and max Geiger), an extra turn attacking with Mox, and a flicker to get Argonaut’s HP back to 4. But with Hyperion in next hand, think I’m better getting Tech2 up for Present pressure. Also feels like playing Geiger now would get him killed in two turns time, just when he’s most needed.

I should have built my tower and tech 2 in reverse order … Would have at least cleared out his NC. I put too much on the line last turn for me to lose in case he in fact had a NC in hand, which he sadly did. Also should have kept Jaina at lvl 1 and saved the 3G. Damn-- pretty big misplay there =/. I’ll try to hold off and buld tech3 in either of next 2 turns. Taking a greedy chance here with nautical dog in SCV instead of lookout hoping he doesn’t have stewardess.

Well so far so good in delaying progression to Tech3. Wait now to be beaten up by Red spells.

You got this one-- GG

GG! Looking through the MMM warmup series between @codexnewb and @Shadow_Night_Black, seems a close-run thing on tempo whether Purple can hold things up T1-4 to get Tech2 established and a favourable position.
