My thoughts

Kind of an awkward starting hand. Playing the Thieving Imp because I need some bulk to keep Jandra from overpowering too much damage through my patrol zone.

I think you should be up a gold, you paid 2 for tech 1

Forgot about this, haven’t played a bunch of multicolor games. Thanks!


#10

Looks like you paid 3 for Bone Collector, so you are floating a gold.

My thoughts

Going way down on cards here, but I’m ok with it because I’m establishing a really strong board position and I can get another round of techs in before I reshuffle. Next turn I plan on worker + Tech II + skeleton or midband Garth, and I should be able to get at least 1 swing in with a Bone Collector.


#12

Jandra’s effect only triggers off of combat dmg. Feel free to edit your turn


#13

Oh whoops you are correct. I’ll leave my turn the same, except patrolling BC #1 in Squad Lead, BC #2 in Scavenger, and Skeleton in Lookout.

You broke my Tech II on the turn I drew my best Tech II stuff, so I will concede here. GG! @EricF


#18

Yeah, not making the worker felt bad but the potential for huge upside on that play was too good. I was going into turns with two ultimates tech’d in with very little options for how Vandy would get killed off.

At worst I think was Kidnapping on my buffed Bone Collector taking out Garth so that I only got minimal value but even then I’d be able to keep your tech 2 in check with Metamorphosis Invis and Readiness.

I felt like skipping the worker was then kind of safe since I thought the game would end before hitting a tenth worker first could really matter so went with that line. I assumed the tech II was crashbarrow havoc so taking out the GY was always going to happen so turning that into destroying tech II felt like the best conclusion to the turn.

GG!
