Thoughts

Playing Jandra isn’t good here, because he can just stick Fargo or a hero in SQL so she can’t kill anything, then bounce her with Stewardess. If I play Vandy in SQL, he can kill her with Nullcraft + midband Zane, and Zane will maxband. I’m not a fan of facing down maxband Zane this early. This way, Zane can do no better than trade for Vandy. If he has Zane + Nullcraft kill Vandy and builds Tech 1, next turn I build Tech 1 and play Imp and GY/hero. That seems fine.

Thoughts

He still doesn’t really have a board, so I can develop my board in relative safety. I could have killed Nullcraft with StW, but I decided I’d rather have a Graveyard to go with Lobber instead. I teched a Lobber to Lobber things and a Dark Pact to keep me full of cards. With Graveyard, I only really need one Lobber.

I drew what might literally be the worst hand possible. I didn’t draw Dark Pact, Lobber, or either removal spell. I don’t think I’ll have quite enough money to safely build Tech 2 next turn, so I might summon some skeletons and plan on building Tech 2 on turn 4. It will depend on what he plays next turn.

Okay, I think I have this one. I don’t think he can kill Vandy next turn unless he has Chaos Mirror. If he does, then I play Lobber + Faerie Dragon and get to start breaking his tech buildings forever. If he doesn’t, I get to Metamorphosis and win.

Thoughts

Surprise Attack while on Peace Machine!? That’s a setback. I’m still in decent shape though, I think. He can spam Cadets now with Tech 1 intact, but with 7 power in flying on the board already + Mimic in hand and Midori in play, I should be able to break both tech buildings again. Either that, or deal a lot to his base.

:open_mouth: GG mate really wp! now i one of your fans! i’ll watch ur games carefully! any advice about our game?


#17

Seems like it probably would have been safer to cast dark pact on legion!!!


#18

I think it would have been better to play Mox over Nullcraft on turn 1. You knew that there wasn’t anything good besides Suits in your next hand, so if you’re playing suits anyway then Mox is better. Mox also gives you some defense, which is good against the Vandy + Lobber deck.

I would have swapped your patrollers on turn 4. Graveyard + Fire telegraphs Lobbers pretty hard, and you should have been especially suspicious since I didn’t play anything on turn 3.

Nullcraft in SQL on turn 5 and killing Vandy on turn 6 were both good calls. On turn 6, I had Metamorphosis in hand.

This deck almost always goes for the Balance tech 2 fliers plan; and it’s very good at it. I would have probably teched a Taxman or 2 early.

I mistakenly played the Dark Pact before checking for lethal. I actually had an entirely different turn planned, but double checked before posting. Luckily, I drew the Lobber and was able to make it work. I did see that I should have just killed with Dark Pact before I posted, though.
