[Casual] Shadow (Mono White) vs Charnel Mouse ( [Law/Truth]/Discipline)


#23

As beatiful as this series of plays is, it costs 2 to ready Sparing Partner


#24

Fixed, I overkilled by 1, so I can just skip sparring with the Twin and it works out the same.

Phew, I can count myself lucky, I think. Dreamscape isn’t as useful without Twins out, so I’ll just worker it. Teching hard into Truth now, staying with MT/Twins spam is going to take ages to set back up now. Getting another Reteller because I desperately need to get my hand size back up.

If a Glorious Ninja comes out then it can walk past the patrol after Porcuping kills the mirror. Quince or Grave could go down, but that leaves it on 2 health to get killed by Aven. I think that makes it worth getting the Tower over playing Free Speech to stop targeted kills on the Tigers.

Manufactored truth only allows you to turn into tech 0/1 units (thankfully, it would be way too good otherwise, this 1 cost 1/1 is now a hyperion!)

I’ll just hit Tech II down to 2 HP as Aven, and draw an extra card.

#36
For charnel_mouse

Could you explain the MTruth/Dreamscape/Rambasa combo you were trying to set up?


#37
For Dreamfire

Sure. The original idea for the deck was to use MT to repeatedly turn things into Twins. This would help with early attacks and help prevent Twins from all going to codex, and also could turn powerful Tech I enemies into Twins to easily send them back to codex. Then Mirrors and/or Insurance Agents for even more.

Dreamscape was a snap decision when I went for Reteller as another way to prevent Twins going to codex. I should probably have just scrapped the whole Twins idea at that point in the match and gone for something else.


#38
For charnel_mouse

Sounds cool! One problem I can see, though, is that MTruth can’t affect enemy units (unfortunately).


#39
For Dreamfire

Ugh, I misread that, that’s annoying. I think the other problem at the moment is that I’d need to cycle the deck more quickly. Blue gives decent draw options later, and Martial Mastery sort of helps, but I might need to be more ruthless with MTing non-token units into Twins to thin the deck. I guess that’s closest we can get to a Chapel build in Dominion.

Thoughts

I think the general plan is to worker the more expensive units, and put down the cheap ones as MT fodder. Then they’ll just be removed from the deck, and I can cycle really quickly. Teching in Twins with a Sparring Partner to things stay alive longer.

I could either put a heroes’ hall down, or level up Grave, and run everything into Rook. That just results in Primus killing Grave next turn, though. I could also play a Tower to deal with any birds that turn up. I can always copy Primus to do that, though. On the other hand, it lets my current units trade with Primus, so let’s do that.

… No turn 3 Twins this time, but I’ve got decent worker fodder, and can put out Newsman or Arrest if I get Scavenger gold.

Thoughts

Bird’s Nest looks like a good excuse to kill Rook to me. I still have 2 gold left over, what to do with it? Pretty much anything in my hand is useful, unfortunately I can’t afford Arrest to get around Technician reshuffle. Aven could block the Birds, but is asking to be kill with spell or Primus. Sparring Partner would be great for Grave, but I don’t think is quite enough to stop a counter attack from Shadow’s units. Reputable Newsman is similar, but would patrol in Elite instead of Squad Leader, and also block Snapback or Safe Attacking. Let’s do that.

Teching in Tax Collector to see if I can catch Shadow floating a ton of gold again.
