[Casual] Vivanter vs GBudee

@GBudee, the circle is drawn. The signal flares are lit.

I’m down to play anything. Leaning slightly towards Mono-Blue right now, but I’d be down to try another matchup if you had one in mind.

Rolled a “The Price is Right” style 51 on a d100.

I suggest blue vs red, competing for best primary color! I rolled 81, but I don’t actually remember whether higher is better.

Yellow when?

You’re welcome to lead off.

Ok, so this probably isn’t a wise line, but why play red if not to see how far you can push the limits of aggression? Theoretically, this lets us clear oni later, and still sneak in base damage now. Something of a gamble to assume drakk will die, but I’d kill him if I were blue. If he doesn’t die, then 3 units of frenzy is no joke.

Okay, blue starting deck continues to be rough stuff, but at least we are up in tech? There’s a lot of lines here where we lose Oni. Tech-wise, seems foolish to go into illusions for the early game, though I’d love the stats. Instead maybe we go with knight (a card that secretly might be bad?) and scribe and try to drown them in card advantage?

At this point of not building tech 1 means commiting to spells and then hotter fire presumably. If we saw Ember Sparks initially, we can assume fire arrows are on the way. I think if I go for Drill Sergeant strats, I can just present more bodies than they can feasibly burn. Brave Knight is a convenient response Jaina on the slim chance they survive the patrol.

I believe you’re thinking of Traffic Director!

Hello, sparkshot, my old friend… I’m gonna stick with my guess that opp just teched flame arrows before the reshuffle and just cast one of his 3 cost spells. Things are looking grim, but I can afford to lose a lot of material in this deck.

dude you forgot to retrieve the BK. Does it change anything in ur turn?

Teching 2x Boot Camp to push one blocker aside feels bad, but here we are. Sad not to see a drill sergeant. Still a good amount of pressure as we start to go off.

Ah, didn’t see your post regarding my T4 before, Legion. I did retrieve it, I just forgot to make a note of it. That’s how I put down 2 units, workered, and still ended the turn with 3 cards to discard. I’ll edit my Starting Hand accordingly.

And now we try for the Free Speech lock. As long as we can whittle down their on board threads and leave blockers for Zane, we’re in a great spot.
