@zhavier GLHF !
I do like this kind of super-hard-controlling decks we both play. No agression and all. :wink:

And another good T1/T2 hands. I've never been that lucky in any previous tournament, that's crazy. True, zhavier can summon hero and Wither sensei, but then midband + Hook ensures revenge kill. Wither on Grave wouldn't work either. And i can kill any unit with near no damage. zhavier may find some way to strike back on T2 though, as I have no good T2 body to play. Probably heading to mid Grave + HH on next turn, but we'll see.

mid-Zane incoming… having 10 gold on next turn with scav, he can mid Zane, then kill SQL mid Grave with any combination of spark/bloom/wither, and still worker (and even tech up if spark). Not having any 2hp unit hurts much. I guess playing Fox Viper is slightly better than midbanding, as it means only spark + wither offer the hero kill. Teching double Fencer, that might help.

Hmm, I think this is a haste fight, so, cards and gold are the enemy. Grappling is a real pain, Probably not keeping zane here, but he is also probably not keeping a lot of board, so I am ok with that.

wow, I'm super happy zhavier prefered withering Grave and not Fox Viper. "free" hero kill is always welcome. I considered Heroes Hall, but I'll most probably tech up on next turn, so playing my healer sounds better. Double partners so I can negate wither; plus that's a good way to spend gold in if I end up down on cards.

I can kill SQL Fencer with Grave and my own fresh Fencer. then, either I stand up and defend, or I kill the other one and try to break those buildings… Hook into Lookout, then Grave and Viper kill both fencers with Sparkshot ? That sounds good, I can break HH and deal 2 more damage to tech I, with a reasonable chance to break it on next turn with Advice (unless it's bottom-deck). I don't tech big guys as I'm not as sure I'll tech up as I was two turns before. I favor Maxband Grave instead of spare gold (or Surplus ?) becaus it offers 3 hp for no card, and hero kill isn't that free, though very feasible. Max Zane kills it straight, but is easy to RK. Mid Zane + spark + Wither/Bloom ends up with a full HP, maxed Zane (5/5 with Bloom), but again, this forces Zhavier to skip worker and lose tech I (and I revenge kill if I draw Sensei's advice).

Ouch, no Sensei’s Advice :frowning: Well I’ll just vomit my hand out, build a Surplus and break tech I, and prepare for a big T6. And if grave survives, well, we’ll see.

This starts to feel good. With more workers, Surplus and some board presence, I should end up winning this game. Teching Martial Mastery to help going throught my deck faster.

skipping tech II again would’ve let me spar thrice and destroy Tower, but I need to play other heroes someday… I prefer not killing Drakk, betting on the fact that he can’t kill Grave that easily, and so I should find a good way to RK and benefit from the levels. I give a rune to Grave because Frenzied fencer + Drakk don’t kill him, so he needs 2 cards, or max Drakk + GPT or Zane + Sharks (the rune forcing overkill in this situation) to kill him. Specifically, zhavier can’t Kidnap a twin, then suicide Drakk, summon a hero and trade, as he’d lost frenzy, so just Kidnapping would make levels fizzle, like max Drakk + Bomber/GPT.

I will call it there, GG!

I had absolutely no grip on this match. You have been very successful in navigating this deck!


#18

GG !
Or was it ??? I feel like, had you been P1, you’d have beaten me just the way I did here. Also, I am surprised you never tried to use your own haste to strike back, or did you think it wasn’t worth it ?


#19

Well, during that last turn, I just figured killing grave with 2 fencers was a pretty bad trade. I would have had just Drakk on defense against all 4 of those units. Snapback was a real possibility. I didn’t even really consider martial mastery, but that just meant you could dig for more useful cards, which I figured the surplus was already providing. And apparently you decided to not even use snapback when you got it, because 1) mind parry is really good at shutting me down and 2) making sure zane was snapback dead and useless wasn’t important when you knew what was in my hand.
