This has to be the greediest opening ever, but I know I’m going to want to tech quickly and my guess is that his strategy is a control one with ““everyone is an illusion but me”” and spreading fire damage spells, with some frog tokens thrown in for fun.

I won’t be putting on board pressure yet but I hope to with Rook and such next turn.

So for some reason my original thoughts were open to the world and I don’t feel like retyping it all. Matched rich earth + first body on the board = muy bueno. Rampent growth online next turn for potential hero kill. Cala stealth worth???

I probably should have tried to get a more aggressive early game going here. I wanted to go t2 but I’m only at 7 workers. I’ve test-played by myself trying to do some sort of truth/fire shinanegans in the past and it felt awkward when I tried to do it, so hopefully I come online first. I figure blooming ancient will be better first with bird’s nest… next tech will be plague lab and the like.

Things looking pretty ok. First time going truth tech II so I don’t know how best to tech things since EVERYTHING has great synergy. I want it all! Unfortunately I didn’t draw any of my tech II’s despite opting for it this turn over a tower. Although this might give me a chance to setup Quince.

I have totally shit the bed with my teching this game. also, obvious blunder thinking birds could chump block ground, I would have just put Rook in squad leader had I realized he was going to get attacked through 3 chumps.

Worst case scenario I see how cool truth/fire can be- I hadn’t thought of using Cala for resist.

Total blunder with the birds, I thought they could chump ground attackers!

Decided to double down on the “fuck your birds” with tower in case he has some sneaky way of dealing with huntress. Might be valuing birds too much but with growth tech II, probably not.

Resist is good, would have been an easy board wipe if he didn’t have it.

Liberty Gryphons to the rescue. Had to worker a Roc for that and I’m still down to a 2 card hand. Put mirror in squad so it doesn’t just die to bird. I want that mirror next turn for a potential hasty spectral tiger from Calamandra’s maxband. The fact that I actually drew a Gryphon right away is gratuitous overkill.

In P1T5, how did you give Calamandra a -1 rune?
Orpal max band only affect units

It must have been a mistake, but Since Shax hasn’t visited in 2 weeks I’m not wasting time to try to fix it.
