Time for an old-school attack analysis!

Offense: 3, 3, 2+*, + = 10 or so
Defense: 4 / 2, 2 / 1, 5 = 9, 13, or 14
So, sadly, I can’t break the Tech II regardless. And I can’t even get to Oni, since I need to use 2 guys to kill the Tree.

9 gold to buy:
+2 for 2 2 times

+1 & a sword for 4 more on Grave

Hook + Sword on basilisk lets me attack past patrol with 3, 2, 1, 2, 2 and get a double-break (losing something on the swing-back, but who cares?)

Tech in 2-step and Reversal, I guess.

Not drawing Moment’s Peace means I am about to get rectally ravaged. I expect I will lose not next turn, but the one after.

That is the correct response. Carry on.
