I think Growth is my game plan here, Boulder / Galina + Birds, then a tech 2 and Mythmaking? Kidnapping won’t work on Nullcraft sadly, but it could be helpful with a Sarge. I’ll have to think on this more, but in the meantime Rook + BROgre feels like a pretty solid start

[details=My Thoughts][spoiler]
I’m still pretty unsure how to approach things here. I feel like I need to better respect PPA’s ability to pick up massive speed. If I’m going with Boulder, I need to be able to answer maxband Prynn well, and respect Zane simultaneously. Really, as tempting as MoLaC is, I think I need to focus on Blood + Arg, as that’s been what I’ve been most consistently successful with. So maybe I end up with a deck that looks like this:

Ardra’s Boulder, Birds Nest
Mythmaking, Dinosize
Galina Glimmer, Crashbarrow
Ogre / Octopus, Dinosize?

I need to keep him off tech 2, so I can’t be too slow. War Drums might be a tricky play if I think I can get away with it, but that’s pretty doubtful. Guess I’ll see where things take me, I think legion has a good chance to knock me out but I’ll do my best!

Really at a loss, BK is a great tech against what I brought… Going to bring in Polymorph: Squirrel against it and Mox, and lay BROgre in sql to force it to trade and at least win on gold a little. I think I’ll probably tech Dinosize and Mythmaking? Max arg and maybe level Rook as well, or Bombaster to snipe a kill on that BK… I don’t think I’ll go at tech 2 but we’ll see

[details=My Thoughts][spoiler]
Debated doing something fun and flashy like this:

  • Drakk + Midband (4)
  • Arg and Tweetie Bird kill Onimaru, Drakk maxbands, you get a card
  • Big Bird kills Plexus, you get a gold
  • Bombaster, gains haste from Drakk maxband (2)
  • Makeshift Rambaster (0)
  • BROgre breaks your tech 1, your base to 18
  • Bombaster and rambaster hit your base to 11

But it would leave him with Mox, BK, and Nullcraft against only Drakk patrolling, with a killable Arg, Rambaster, and Bombaster behind for Zane and mox to ice mostly for free. I’d be able to go to blood tech 2 the next turn and work towards the remaining 10 base damage without a ton of trouble but it’d be really risky.

A stewardess will start to rain on my parade and I suspect he’s teched one, otherwise boot camping my brogre feels pretty unwise. I’m going for MoLaC with a decent chance to draw it and have multiple units on the board.

I don’t think killing Arg should have been a super high priority :frowning: Also I’m assuming based on your gold totals the chaos mirror line was a mistake

Well looks like I made the right call, MoLaC drawn was fortunate, MoLaC + haste was very fortunate, and with that I think it basically doesn’t matter what I tech, I’m set to draw into Rambaster and get charged no matter what he does.

#13

yep. gg mate i concede.
I lost my cool on the oni misplay. Ty for the game <3
@EricF


#14

GG WP @Legion! I did hit a pretty nice draw for that reshuffle there, though I did tech 2 copies of MoLaC so I’d be at least 50/50 even if you didn’t kill Bombaster, and 70% if you did (which I figured you would).

Yea the Oni turn really hurt you, getting my Brogre buff just to kill Rook wasn’t terribly effective, I think you’d have been better off going for tower and Stewardesses or Rewind maybe. At the least, killing Arg and patrolling the BK might have gone better
