I'm likely to die just as EricF couldn't stop me when I was P1. I guess that's just fair !

Whatever I do, there are so many ways I lose. Any level upping loses to Snapback, patrolling Monk in SQL offers another free kill or even Rook dead with Hook + Fencer. And if he ever teched and drew both Fencers with Sensei’s advice, there is litteraly nothing to do save Max Rook, which instaloses to snapback. Hell, this Codex rocks as P1.

OH WAIT ! :smiley:

Edit: I forgot to put Savior Monk in discard pile when he died, ending with one card missing after reshuffle. Hence, I corrected it and redrew my end-of-turn hand.

Aaaaaaaand he drew both teched cards. Well I did as well, but I'm not P1, so I can't crush him like he will. He's going down on cards and skipped worker but I doubt I'll live long enough to punish him for doing so. I wonder whether I'm supposed to tech Discords or just drop some guys for defense ? Let's do both.

Now I wonder what EricF will do ? Continue massive agression, or tech up ? Oh wait, he can do both. Anyway, that's the very moment I'm waiting for: if I redraw fencer(s) and can get some value out of Discord, I might damper his momentum and maybe profit from my workers. Else I think I can concede ! Bringing Grave instead of Rook so he can't suicide his Grave, then summon another hero and get free levels.

With tech I up, I'd have been so good in the game :frowning: Snapback would've helped as well. This techn draw hurts so badly, meaning I won't replay Twins anytime soon AND I reshuffle this turn, hence having no way to tech 4 tech II bodies.

It is not. GG !

I’m glad to learn that MM works even without cards in hand.
