My Thoughts

Well I’ve seen enough of this White Finesse deck to know I can’t let him own the board early for free (otherwise he can hero’s hall and bring river to this hellish pressure), but I also can’t give away levels. So I think I will try to get him investing into Grave (where he has to put damage on him after leveling up) so that I can keep some Zane threat, and go either for Surprise Attack, SotP, or Hoodies to help turn the pressure over to my side. Fencers will be annoying, but if I can get past the first four turns roughly even, I think I can wear him out at tech 2. We shall see though, discord is a pain in the side of BA plans, and all eggs in the MoLaC is a tough sell against Versatile Style. Might be a good game to try Anarchy T2.

None of my obvious workers in this hand but I prefer keeping Rambaster to Mad Man, so mad man is the reluctant choice.

My Thoughts

I’m expecting Fencers, , which makes Surprise Attack less appealing, but I don’t feel like I’ll be able to stick much of anything otherwise. Grabbing Sharks and a Hoodie, and we’ll see what he makes of some float. I should be safe to tech up next turn if not much else

Woof, I whiffed… Bad luck, brian. He’ll probably end up having gone bird’s nest and I’ll feel like a fool for not grabbing Taxman…

My Thoughts

So I think I want rook dead, as birds are just a mess for me in so many ways, and any pressure I can buy off the board is a big plus. Probably that means shoving him to scav, grabbing the gold then pillaging it away, and dropping Bombaster to force him to come at me with everything if he wants the kill on Zane. Either way, I probably drop Hoodie + tech up next turn. That makes me feel like I’ve bought enough space to run Anarchy, so lets tech a Steam Tank, but just in case I’ll probably want a GPT anyway, so we’ll have the other tech go that way for now.

I guess you meant Scavenger. Good job Rook, taking one for the team!

Nimble Fencer
Snapback — Magic -> Worker //Sensei’s Advice will likely be more useful going forward, and I think I would rather delay cycling for a turn, to get more information.

Attacks: 2, 2, 1, ++ for 3, + for 2, 2 for 2 = 5-11 total … except I can’t play Grave this turn
Defense: 3 / 2, 4 … and I could actually keep Nimble Fencer alive through it
Or, leave Zane alive, let him trade off with another 2 gold, but put him out of commission for turn 5.

Planning on Bird summoning next turn, so let’s get set up to take down Tokens / Buildings:
Tech in 2-step and Discord

7 gold (7)

Smoker pings your Base for 1

My Thoughts

Can’t tech up with a board that big… I have to try and shell up. Discord is a concern, no doubt, so I don’t feel super comfortable relying on LB. I am grabbing SotP for some extra heft to offer a WE or Brogre if I can manage to combo draw (though I do need to be careful of Vines as well.) Really anything I can do to stop the onslaught. Hopefully another Hoodie can help with that as well. Dropping Hoodie in my hand if I don’t draw the GPT to block, he’ll need the other Fencer (which he almost certainly has) to break my tech 1).

RS draw Surprise Attack, that’s okay I spose, since Zane is taking a day off anyway



#9

Honestly, I wasn’t expecting you to have Sharks even in your deck. At least it wasn’t Maximum Anarchy!

Bird’s Nest

Defense: 4 / 2, 19
Attack: 2, 2, 1

I think I just go for the birds, though.

Tech in 2x Grounded Guide (If I can redraw into one of these, it should be approximately lethal with 2 birds and a Smoker getting in and busting stuff up)

RS and Draw, then tech 2 cards.

My Thoughts

Well I feel like I better tech up now while I have a chance, despite the likely double tech kill incoming. I could drop Brogre in addition… But I think I would rather have extra float and the card to throw attacks out next turn? Idk tbh, I just can’t keep up without sharks… Who knows, maybe I get to keep my tech 2, and I can go like Zane + Arg + Charge + Steam Tank next turn, and cause some havoc? Wishful thinking most likely, but gotta try…

Lol 14 more, GG WP @EricF!

I guess perhaps I could have gotten away with LB, I figured you’d have Discord laying in wait.

GL in your triumphant return here Eric, I’ll be spectating the rest of the tourney!
