okay, 2 losss, lets see what we can do here. white agression. putting out rogue to threaten his hero’s. i think worst case is savior monk sql rook backline. if that’s the case, i can drop imp and tech up. ideal is sensei/smoker, i deteriorate, then put runes on rook.

note, if he drops flabearer and sensei/smoker, ill put out garth and wall up.

Rogue is no usual start with a black starter ! Yet it does deny any SLQ Rook thanks to Zane… Monk as scav + hero backline should provide a reasonable counter to this, but then, mid Zane would hurt… Maybe Elite Monk + Rook is the only decent playaround; I fail to see any other. Zane into Monk, then Rogue into Rook would leave me with a crippled, yet lvl 3 hero; Garth + token + StW would do the same, Rook staying lvl 1 but codexnewb paying 1 card and 1 gold more. Monk in Elite also prevent any zane + deteriorate kill.

okay, safe attacking, sensei's advise, all are super tough for me. that means i need to clear his tech 0's and 1's as best i can. zane it is.

that means next turn he has gg 6, worker 5, tech 1, 4, mid rook? 2, aged sensei 1, float 1. im fine if he drops a card to GH jav, id prefer the tech draw though. also fine wif jav sticks around.

teching double taxman to lear my lesson from eric f.

i think that's about the best i can do. outside of skip tech 1 and tech double liches bargain, which is asking for trouble from flyers.

OK, so I end up with far more gold, but my hero slot locked by a 0/2. I don't think Heroes' Hall would help much, so I can either save my gold (having no haste+GPT to fear), or build a tower. Again, with no haste and no way to steal my gold on next turn, I fail to see why I should hurry and build a tower this soon… Let's save money !

Edit: just after I posted my turn, I noticed how Spirit of the Panda would blast me. If so, nice catch ! Else I’m good :slight_smile:

Wow, I had a good feeling not going for Fencers and birds ! Partner(s) shall help Rook recovering full strength, while codexnewb basically lost 3 gold for a not-that-usefull tower. I play Viper so I don't reshuffle now and can add another 2 things before. Yet I put it in Techn hoping he will prefer killing Sensei. Reshuffling after techn is slightly better than not playing the card anyway.

gosh, no fencers huh? well, maybe the tower will come in handy later. want to drop everything, but probably not a great idea since he rushed tech 2. il have to tech up while i can. double LB next turn. lets see what he drops. hopefully not GH, SA, AND Fencers. teching a molac in case i get the draw.

Obvious LB + BA coming, so teching double Discord should help.
For now, I must find a way to create some value out of my board position. Buffing Rook thrice, Rook kills GPT… OK but what if Nether Drain ? it offers 4 levels to Garth, and so a near-free maxband->BA. Not sure I want that. Yet I see no other way to get rid of this GPT. Or maybe I should skip worker and level up ? Honestly, I don't know if Nether Drain has ever been teched. GPT and probably BC or a second GPT, one BA for sure, but what else ? Obvious LB ? BCs ? maybe MoLaC… Against Rook, though, I'd definitely fetch at least one Nether Drain, but here, my Rook is so crippled it may not have been considered as a threat. At least, not enough to have been teched against on turn 3. Si Nether Drain only has 1/7 chances to be drawn this turn, if teched. That's a risk I can take, I guess. Maybe he teched Doom Grasp, but at least that's 4 gold (and wisp) for a fair hero kill, not one that doubles the gain… Note to self: Max Zane, kills viper with max, kills Partner, then Arg trades with Rook, leads to me losing it, but levels fizzling and him having a 4/1 Zane around that I can possibly RK… Or maybe I should just put Viper in Lookout ? Clearly, with only 7 gold, I'd be glad he spent 2 for Garth and 1 for deteriorate, or 2 for deteriorate with penalty… Zane is the top 1 threat here, so Lookout sound better. If so, Max Zane + 1g means he has no gold left; he can shove Viper to scav, but it means either he skips worker to protect Zane with jav (if he has it), or I'm 100%sure to RK, both sounding fine.

Hmmm, maybe DeGrey should have been better than Discord ^^’ I expected some blockers other than tokens. Well, I’ll tech one copy for sure. Doubling Barbarian should live this turn and hit hard on the next, especially with Sensei’s Advice


#11

Looks like you didn’t pay for the Barbarbarian


#12

The zombie was also left off the board from lichs bargain.


#13

so rook cannot walk past arg, and rook is safe?

I misspook, it would have been behind the lines.

Sorry about that. Zombie is on backline.

Well, obviously it’s harder when you pay what you play. Snapback goes to worker as I don’t think it’s necessary here… and I need Hook more for Barbarian to shine against horrors. I just hope Garth won’t cast LB + Doom grasp on Barbarian… And I don’t draw Discord. OUCH.

Oof that's big. Hook would've served this turn. Not teching earthquake because I fear Rook will die before I ever manage to hit a building… Buffing Grappler with partner because of Max Zane.


#20

i think i need to gg it here. nicely played. i got whipped by eric using this same deck and i siked myself out. GL in the rest of the tourney.


#21

GG !
I guess you were so frightened by EricF’s onslaught that you played too defensive. your Rogue play did the thing, leaving me with a locked hero slot, but that T3 tower gave me all the time I needed to come back and profit from the levels you gave me.

I must say I totally overlooked you bringing out a Rhino, though.
