CAWS 2016: Zejety ([Discipline]/Strength/Finesse) vs. Legion ([Past]/Peace/Anarchy)


#1

@Legion GL HF, fellow E U B O I!
One of us will drop, right? Let’s go down with a bang!

P1T1

[details=Turn secrets]* Hand: Morningstar Flagbearer, Fox Viper, Savior Monk, Grappling Hook, Sensei’s Advice

  • Worker: Fox Viper
  • Tech: -
  • Thoughts: What a hand. Neither Primus nor a 1g unit. :confused: Rook would be the safest option but I at least want to try to thin my discard pile before the 2nd cycle.
    Scavenger Monk trades with Zane for +1 gold but -tempo, since Legion can play Fargo or Plexus on top.
    SQL Monk dies to Zane + Nullcraft but leaves just the Nullcraft.
    Both openings invite Oni+Fargo/Plexus for a big board. I could threaten Grappling Hook by playing a hero, but I won’t have gained much if he calls my bluff or plays Fargo in SQL with Oni not patrolling. I also need birds and can’t really commit to an on-board Grave.

Note: Of course I did not tech in my first turn. Will fix my post in a second. :wink:

[details=Turn secrets]* Hand: Fox Primus, Aged Sensei, Smoker, Snapback, Safe Attacking

  • Worker: Fox Primus
  • Tech: Nimble Fencer, Bird’s Nest
  • Thoughts: Oh well, as expected. At least it looks like he did not draw Fargo. Having seen what early levels can do for Oni, I cannot risk him killing my hero this turn. So I’ll put up some chump blockers. Will clearly trade in his favor but there is little I can do about it.

[details=Additional thoughts]I’ve just realized I was pointlessly planning around Boot Camp which Legion cannot have in turn 2. I gues sI’ve played too many p2 games so far.^^
Not sure if I would have setup my board differently. Too distracted to go though what-if scenarios now. :P[/details]

[details=Secrets]

Hand : Fargo, plasmo, tinker,tr and mox
Tech: [spoiler]cadet+OS/spoiler]
Thoughts : Ok, fisrt thing sfirst. I have seen him playing so i can expect a birds into quake strat, hence the OS. Cadet serves as a 0 unit while try winning the tech race. I already did a misplay this turn. Should not have played oni, and built tech I. that way this turn i could have prynn and TR to draw cadet and something useful. meh, too late for regrets. my plan is to go to peace, my anarchy sucks hard.

[details=Eot thoughts]
now let my explain my strat. So far to kill on he has to: sensei buff savior, savior and smoker suicide on fargo, so my 2 gold card eats 3gold and 2 cards. then he has to mid rook and kill oni. a bad trade i dig in. possible shit is: he has sensei advice, worst shit ever. I get my board wiped and cry a lot. note that if advice happens i have no way to not get rekt, so let’s just hope he does not have it. lesser shit: hook on fargo, so no SQL, buffed savior trades with fargo midrook kills oni :confused: bad but not as the above since he has to stay down on cards and gold.
Also if any of that stuff happen prynn can kill rook with os. [/details]


#6

Was this supposed to be in Elite or to be 2/2?


#7

fixed is 2/2. just a typo cuz she was in elite, then writing my eot thoughts i realized scav was better

Hand : mox,os,ffight,nullc,tr
Tech: [spoiler]garrison+cadet/spoiler]
Thoughts : Ok, i forgot about nimble. I need a board, in codex best defence is attack. SO i get rid of rook and savior to avoid healing. Birds are now much less threatening . [/details]

i doubt prynn will survive, he is very likely to have advice since he used hook this turn. But he is down on cards and gold. If next t he owrkers and advice, ok, my prinn dies but he gets stuck on 3 cards, while i am at 4 and with cadet i will have plentu gold for zane shenaningans and tech II.
I believe er now are even [/details]

[details=Turn secrets]* Hand: Sensei’s Advice, Bird’s Nest, Safe Attacking

  • Worker: Safe Attacking
  • Tech: Two Step, Rambasa Twin
  • Thoughts: Could have killed Prynn with Sensei’s Advice but what would that have achieved? Drop me down to 0 cards and give him free hero choice again. As it stands, I don’t think Prynn is a threat to Rook so I should be fine.

P2T4 dude, this turn of yours is rrly bad. imo is game, unless u pull some insane tricks

[details=Secrets]

Hand : cadet,tr, bs, cadet
Tech: [spoiler]garrison+sarge/spoiler]
Thoughts : [spoiler]Well, thisturn is rlly odd, imo makes no sense. Ok hero, but why BN? and why no kill pryy? i could just heal her, or suicide her. did he forgot about zane?/spoiler] [/details]


  1. Get 8 Gold+f(9), tech 2 cards
  2. skip worker
  3. Prynn fades and suicides into rook. rook lv 3 2/3.
  4. Lv 4 zane (4) kills rook, nest falls. we both draw. zane maxbands and heals sending sql bird to looky killing it.
  5. Tech II peace (0)
  6. Cadet
  7. cadet
  8. disc 3 draw 5

[details=Eot thoughts]
rook is out for 2 turns. bird is useless cuz nullc. next turn peace engine starts and is game over, imo [/details]


#12

Oops, I calculated with a Prynn that cannot suicide. Why did I attack her? xD


#13

my thought indeed. u opened a path for zane that killed 1 card and 4 gold of yours.
imo the trade was insanely bad for u


#14

Yeah, it’s frustrating. I have a really good hand for “Rook is not dead” world, too. :frowning:


#15

and what about it in the real world where “no rook for 2 turns and my opponents beat me at tech race”? :imp:


#16

eidt: also i forgot that with no worker i am back to 5 cards not 4. now will fix it
Ri edit: ofc i am so dumb that i raised my hand to 5 and forgot to raise the disc pile up to 5 too for the non workered cards. fixed that. sorry


#17

It’s pretty shit for that. :wink:
I agree it’s probably game with this MU but I’ll keep playing regardless. Can’t take my turn for a while though.


#18

np, i did not intend to bully force a conceding, just stating my cents. :’(
Maybe u can make a comeback, but imo, even with the best cards i can think of, u can wipe my
board but i would still have both zane and Tech II, so i would only benefit from that (scav+tech).
I just meant that if i get a good draw and start the peace engine, well, is rrly bad.
The trade was bad cuz sql bird allowed me to normal attack rook, while was he in sql i would still be in a bad spot. but with him dead, only 1 bird (useless for nullc) and my tech II for a second hero, well, from my POV the situation is dire for u


#19

The turn I would have done if I had not derped would have been the same but without attacking Prynn. Same patrol but Prynn could not have suicided. Maybe you had other tricks up your sleeve but that was the plan.


#20

i think ur reasoning was “i shut down prynn, so he either midb her wasting gold, or keeps her as a weak body.” prob is that making suicide possible, zane could tag in
