Initial Thoughts:

  1. temporal distortion is bad, mmkkk.
  2. blood and present seem like his go to
  3. Skeletons might do well here.

Options,

  1. Garth, sj jav. - he’ll most likely put Cal out in front. that means turn 2, im stuck with putting garth out front, which dies to cal/unit, or putting skeleton/jav out front, meaning they get wiped and im behind turn 3. although, i can technician to try and drop double BC turn 3. cal can still stealth to kill garth, but that wouldnt be horrible for me long term.

okay, T1, garth, sk jav, T2, sk, tech 1, haunt, T3, ideal, double BC.

Thoughts

I don’t play against black starter very often, so I’m not entirely comfortable in my early game choices against it yet. I think I always play Calamandra here but I wasn’t sure between midbanding her right away or playing a unit. I think I like the extra pressure from the unit and the additional chump blocker in the Wisp. Rampant Growth can suddenly make it an attacker if need be and it and Panda give me two blockers for one card, even if one of them is insta-dead to Deteriorate.

worker summon skeletons. even though he doesnt have flying, archery might be good if he doesnt clear my skeletons by turn 3.

well, he dropped cal like i thought. putting sk jav on tech to maybe get the double BC. if e stealth’s for garth, at least ill have the cycle advantage.

next turn, gg 6, float 7, worker 6, bc 5, bc 3, bc 1 (or imp/pbr)

Thoughts

Keeping Garth off the field seems pretty important. I’m expecting to keep Calamandra from this position, but don’t feel like I can risk the tempting double Feral Strike, given the likelihood he has Zane to counter attack with and the potential of Doom Grasp/Nether Drain before I could get Tech II up. Much more conservative to get some solid value Tech Is in and hope to hit him hard after my next cycle. Might try Tigers into TD without a Tech II but it could be a risk with the amount of unit removal he has.

Thoughts

him being able to wall up next turn with tech 2, potential argo, and Cal makes me nervous. i wouldnt be able to get at his tech 2 at all, and the tricycloids would come with a vengence.

i think dropping BC and PBR, with Sk out front would be best. he has no haste with Cal as is right now. if PBR survives, it makes it more likely that BC can survive against any wall he throws out there. i like PBR more than STW since he has that wisp, which im relectant to kill given his dampened cycle.

also, limited my reshuffledraw to just 1, so hopefully, wont draw that BA just yet.

worker the graveyard. im more focussed on keeping my units out there right now, pretty successfully for the time being.

hmmm, dont want to trade with him since he has the advantage. just let him run into me. assuming he tech’s up right now, feral strike will be a real problem. teching two netherdrains and can use garth to dig for them worst case. save a BA in the codex for garth max of course.

bc out front to force a rampant growth or cal to take 3 damage. good news is if he electes to go at my tech 2 with stealth, it doesnt destroy me. i can lay out garth for a turn.

Yuck. I really don’t want to skip my worker here but I reckon thats my only hope of recovering my hand. With MoLaC likely next turn I’m pretty spooked. Double Hyperion because I need cards desperately.

well, i can either just put my strong turn out there, or i can dig for the netherdrain to try and prevent a potential feral strike. i think the former is better for me at this point.

whats the worst case? maybe double hyperion? double crashbarrow? i thiiiiiiiink my wall can handle either of those. just need garth to survive so i can use those ND’s next turn.

teching second LB and then Surprise Attack just in ase he ice’s Garth. I dont like it, but i need to patrol the BA.
