OK, I definitely want a maxband Drakk here, which is 5 gold after killing River. That leaves me with 6 gold to make magic happen. I need 4 damage, then 10. Too bad I didn’t draw Kidnapping, I could have taken shot the base with Tricycloid before running it into River, and ended up with 1 base health left and Drakk troll blocking.
Unit damage: best I can do is Tiger Cub, which is 2 gold for 4 damage. Grappler is the same damage for 3 gold, no good.
Spell damage: Rampant Growth is the only option, 2 gold for 2 more damage.
Blocker damage: Crash Bomber and Drakk can deal 2 more if killed.
That’s 8 damage after Midori kills River and clears everything except Geiger. Not enough. I’m better off just hasting and Growthing the Bomber to flatten the Tech II again, and blocking with the Grappler.
