Okay, I can see that my next cycle is coming up and since I’ve built Tech II, I want to have access to a Tech II card. Reteller seems the best first option to keep my hand size up. I’m fine with losing Bigby here though I may create too much of an opening for his board. We shall see. For the moment, he has to use the Plasmodium or the Stewardess + Nullcraft to get through Bigby. Using the Plasmodium will work out well for him because it will still have one life left which gives him a pain the ass unit for me to deal with.

Warp Gate Disciple is spooky. I think I need the Aven out to do some business. From there I have to basically hope that he doesn’t draw the Nullcraft so that I can get at him.

Hmmmm, I have temporarily disabled Now! but his Stewardess can undo that right quick, though it will cost more. He’ll have 11 gold next turn so he can easily use 1 for worker and 4 for the Stewardess to bounce the Newsman. The Fading Argonaut and first Stewardess can trade into and murder the Reteller. From there all he has is Geiger + Rewind. However, he can forgo some stuff to Maxband Prynn and hide them with her runes. Thankfully he doesn’t have enough gold to Maxband her and cast Rewind unless he forgoes the worker and murders Bigby. Okay, so the Patrol Zone is a puzzle that I have to figure out. He has 2 + 3 + 3 to attack with. That means that if I put the Reteller up front, he has to attack two of them and lose both. He can save either the Fading Argonaut or the Stewardess and then kill Bigby unless I put Bigby in the back. He can also play the Stewardess to bounce the Newsman and then cast Now! on her, have her attack something, flicker her with Geiger, and then attack something else. HMMMMMMMM. I think leaving the Reteller in Squad Leader is best for me. After that, I want to make sure as many units die as possible so I’m going to put the Mirror Illusion into Elite so that it will functionally deal 3 damage to anything that attacks it. Let’s see how we do.

If I suicided Bigby and Geiger max levels, does his maxband fizzle or do I choose which of your units it applies to? If I get to choose, would the unit be sidelined out of the Patrol Zone?


#151

It fizzles

P.S. Your Tech I has 3 HP because my Aven attacked it early on in the game.

Okay, I’m teching a Roc because he doesn’t have a good way of dealing with it. I had to forgot building Tech III so I could prevent an Ebbflow Archon from destroying me. I suicided Bigby PURELY to trigger Geiger’s maxband and prevent it from being used against me. Now if he wants to suicide Geiger, he’ll give Quince free levels and I’m not opposed to that at all. Next hand looks good for me, especially with my Mirror Illusion out. That said, I’m not super comfortable. I know he has Rewind and that would be pretty bad for me right here. It would delay things significantly and I think that favors him WAY more than me. FINGERS CROSSED?!

Okay, He has an Ebbflow Archon and he can definitely play it. The Traffic Director is hilariously immune to Prynn, Stewardess, and the Archon but is super easy to murder. He can’t target the Hound with Stewardess but he can with the Archon and Prynn. However, he has to kill the Flagbearer before he can go after them. I think I feel satisfied with my Patrol but I can’t wait to be obliterated.

Curses! I think I maybe ought to have destroyed the Tech Lab, but I figured destroying the Tech III building would be better since it would let me prevent both Tech III options.

Tech lab would have been better, costs me gold to rebuild, and Octavian is such a weak tech 3 unit, not sure when I would ever want to play it…

edit: @flagrantangles why didnt you use the eyes to make one of your patrolling illusions invisible last turn? Would have made it a lot harder for me to just bounce your board back to your hand…

Here we go. Let’s throw up a Jail and go for a Peace plan. I think maybe I will avoid Garrisons and go for Air Hammers + Flagstone Spies. That could be fun.

So my tech plan should look like this:

Okay, it begins. I’ve got both my Tech 1 units in my next hand and if he floats any gold, I can steal it. He has bypassed my jail with Forecast, but I think the units I’ll be throwing down will be meaty enough walls to deal with it. For right now I’m hoping I can choke him out well enough to get my Tech II up and harrassing him.

Also, I’ll be going to Gen Con tomorrow so I will likely not be responsive from August 1st to August 5th. I figured it would be prudent to let you know. :sunglasses:
