No fan of Mox, but I’m setting up well to tech 2 or pump Oni next turn this way, and I think that will go well for me. Set up pretty well in defensive formation, I’m leaning Truth tech 2 but we’ll see how it goes.

Plasmodium should have taken 1 damage from frozenstorm’s tower.


#9

Huh, I didn’t even remember he built that. Have to get used to this format. Thanks for pointing it out. Fixed!


#10

I find it easier when the post is more compact so I can see everything without scrolling up and down. Helps with remembering those pesky towers.


#11

I’m making modifications to my format each time. This game is a learning experience for me not only because I’m still learning the game, but I’m also learning how to streamline the forum posts.

Unphase will either let me kill an illusion, or let me sneak past an illusion to kill Macciatus.

Yeah this was almost a bit dodgy, probably should have teched Reteller > Roc, but I sort of figured he’d tech up with me. Surprised to see him try to board dominate at tech 1. Barring a Stewardess or FF though, my backline is still safe, and even if he does get Macciatus / Quince, I should have enough to hit back with. Grabbing injunction just in case shit hits the fan. Next turn I expect to tech in Gryphons.

“Kill the Tech 2 or kill Onimaru?” I asked myself, and then picked all wrong :stuck_out_tongue:

I fully expected you to tech up, hindsight I should have patrolled Oni :wink:

I was originally planning to go Future, but against Truth, Tricycloid is too appealing. I also won’t mind a giant Immortal body to deal with the coming onslaught.

I decided to go all out offense here to make sure that my guys trade favorably. With 1 health each, on defense it gives my opponent the advantage to trade his mini-guys for my high-attack guys. This way, I deal more total damage to his board.

I don’t really know what my plan is for next turn except to hope he doesn’t have a lot coming (or illusions without another Macciatus, since I have 2 targeting spells) and to get a Tech III up with all the gold I’m going to have with no threats in hand.

Gambling on his hand he doesn’t have tech 2 and grabbing Gryphons.

Nope! Why did he tech Unphase when I’ve had a tower all this time? and KotC? You will learn the value of playing a card from hand in time, StrixVaria-san XD

I’m super safe, I’ll be able to injunction him this next turn and then draw into my Gryphons XD

Well I hit on my 25% to draw the Gryphons outright, which I was not expecting… I’m too gold-strapped to play it AND Injunction effectively though, as I REALLY want the Reteller to protect him. So we’ll just kill the tech 2 and wait to draw the other one to straight end it, next turn I think I can make it GG
