Wow, good hands again; I'll miss bodies on next turn though, as Hook removes Smoker from patrol. Being P1, I must keep the pressure up, as I know very well what happens if this deck, with P2's eco advantage, manages to seize the initiative.

Hmmm. Saving money for some big hero ? Strange, as I can snapback it immediately. Let's see what EricF has in mind. For now I favor Partner over Fencer(s), for snowball and/or synergy with birds.

I wonder whether giving levels to Rook or Grave. Snapbacking Grave would hurt, but that'd cost a probably-not-surviving-my-turn hero plus 3, while Rook can die to double Fencer, or Fencer + advice if I put it in SQL, Fencer + Hook otherwise. Moreover, my board gets crippled by Discord, and there is little I can do, save for putting Smoker in Techn/scav. Anyway I can't counter both Fencer + buff and Discord, so I guess I'll accept I may lose Rook. Having Grave snapbacked would be quite fine, to tell the truth.

Not patrolling Grave because of Reversal and Hook both offer free kill; else, Lookout would’ve been an option.

No surprise, but it still hurts ! Grappling hook killing Partner no top of it doesn't help either. Advice won't be much useful this turn ! Now, I can either tech up and fetch some good guys (possibly Barbarians), or stick to Tech I for now and build on birds/Fencers. I favor this option, as I hope I won't face two hasty units this turn, so a clean boardsweep should be worth it. No Hook this time, so Grave in Lookout. I go down on cards so I can tech big guys and not reshuffle now.

Skipping worker ? I guess that's always good news, but I must go down on cards all the same… AND I may skip worker as well. I favor breaking Tech I over Tech II as no Tech II has haste…


#10

That’ll do it! gg @zhavier


#11

Brutal game, well played to you both.


#12

GG ! I missed my fencers on turn 4 but having both on turn 5 was just as fine.


#13

I don’t think it would have made a huge difference, but on Eric’s turn three he paid a gold to grapple rook to lookout from squad leader.


#14

River does in fact have to pay the tax to cast a white spell, so ericf did it correctly.


#15

Ah I am a dummy. I forgot that he had finesse
