Thoughts

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.

Unfortunely I didnt get the cards I needed to clear his board with that R&D, so this is likely very over now.


#45

Indeed, I had my base finisher in hand so Drakk not being killed is all I needed. GG, what a game! @zhavier

hmm, my codex shows promise at least, need to work on not taking so long to get out the door, past is showing promise as well for inclusion over future, need to figure out those few kinks though.


#47

You got moving quickly enough to put me on the back foot at first, it wasn’t until that amazing Kidnapping that I had the breathing room to get the Drakk + Strength synergy into high gear. I was considering a Balance pick against Present, but I’m not sure how that would have turned out, Shimmer Rays could be enough to block Mimics pretty efficiently.


#48

true but for so much of that game, I was so close to much more powerful turns, maybe its just that both of our decks can apply a lot of presure with no board, but with even a little board rapidly multiply that power… Will see, but I had similar feelings in my first game. Not having Glaxx to pair with the Two step is hurting a lot though, having the unit survive after two step dies does make it a lot better


#49

Yeah, I had a lot of turns like that too. Best of luck in the rest of the tournament!


#50

you too :slight_smile:
