Looks like you got the hang of it so far! As long as the opponent knows how you affected their board, and you list your patrol, backline, buildings, gold and deck state, that’s all the key bits of info.

My post format tends to be on the longer side, as I like to use the advantage of this site’s record-keeping as a way for others to learn and spectate just by reading through my turns, but that’s not at all expected of people (it actually bothers some, and I apologize if it bothers you).

I love skeletons, I miss my childhood diablo 2 days playing the Necromancer :slight_smile: If only I could make a Fire Golem too… Standard start, weak to Nullcraft + Battle Suits but that’s fine, I’d just imp him down cards further if he did that.

Going for imp anyway, I have a feeling he went for KotC with that tinkerer drop so putting him down on cards will be useful. FArgo is about to fade away, I’m going for my standard turn 2 techs to get big board advantage.

Losing Battle Suits to the Imp is big. Now trading is really unattractive. I had a 2/3 chance to draw a bounce with Geiger’s midband and I took it. 2 gold and a card to destroy a token that cost 1 gold feels bad, but what I’m afraid of is allowing him to play Orpal, midband, and sac the skeleton to start the disease train rolling. Now if he does that, at least he has to lose a better unit. Plus, giving him the Imp back when I’m already down on cards is scary.

I had an alternative line: play Neo Plexus, haste it with Now!, play Nullcraft. Put Geiger and Nullcraft into the Imp, Tinkerer into the skeleton, and the hasty Plexus and Fargo into Garth, leveling and healing Geiger. But I think it’s too early to discard 0 draw 2.

I hope I killed the right hero - Vandy spells are nasty too, but I could get rekt by Grasp or Drain. Barely keeping my head above water, I think, and I’m not optimistic about being able to build Tech 2 next turn.

Sorry, forgot to make Stewardess a 3/3 due to battle suits, I’ve edited.

Wow I’m so dead. There’s some possibility that my Tech 2 survives, and I have a 1/7 shot of drawing Origin Story off the Seer. Without that I’m going to keep getting hammered by Vandy. I’m basically giving away free hero levels in hopes of keeping Tech 2 alive, which is not good. If I do somehow survive, Second Chances is a decent counter to Disease nonsense, but I need a board too.

Interesting that he Origin Story’s Garth, though I guess it’s just as effective as Vandy with me holding both Ultis. This is GG now, I’ll be able to crush his base from here.

#14

Whew. I’ll concede to that, gg. I agonized over who to bounce, but then realized Vandy had Resist anyway so this way the math was easier, and Garth ult would have been pretty bad too. Guess I picked wrong.


#15

Not totally wrong, I had Garth’s ultimate in hand too :wink: gg wp
