My Thoughts

Much better start to this game than last, though I don’t think I want to drop dog + Brogre for fear of Grappling hook or smoker trading off favorably with Safe Attacking. I want a hero down so Grave can’t get rid of Brogre trivially. So let’s go with Garth to pair, and next turn Skele + Bombaster + tech up can be the play, followed by LB if desired.


I’m so used to you playing Black that I have to keep stopping myself from worrying about Garth casting Deteriorate.

Thoughts

If he’s committing to Garth, I don’t need to worry about Pillage. I’ll try opening with Martial Mastery and Tax Collector, in hopes of selecting priority workers and/or facilitating combos.

Haha yea, I get mixed up thinking I have black and red starter sometimes, which would be something very scary indeed :slight_smile:

My Thoughts

Hmm, I’m not terribly fearful here… Either he spends a lot to kill Garth and doesn’t get free levels off it, or I can pretty safely roll forward with LB + Tech up. Feels like a win/win, so let’s do it

Drew both LB, that’s unfortunate but fine.

Wow, I’m out of it. I completely forgot that I need a Tech I building to play Tech I units, heh. May as well swap out this Tax Collector and check for Doom Grasp… Eww, double Bargain; Garth has to go. At least the rest of his hand isn’t an immediate threat, and the Smoker can deter Zane.

My Thoughts

Yeah that doesn’t seem terribly worth for him, kind of a stall… I suppose with MM he’s thinking to go TPOS? If so, no sweat, I can tech a Doom Grasp or Surprise Attack if I feel its needed. I considered T2 Anarchy here instead of Growth, but I don’t see that working out for me any better than growth will.

Can’t delay my Tech I any longer. Not sure how I should patrol, so I’ll peek again… and wow, that’s a lot of haste. Pretty sure MoLaC is incoming. Better drop the Flagbearer to protect my Tech I.

You want me to kill Grave…?

My Thoughts

I mean I can just kill Grave? Just like that? Sure, okay :slight_smile: Not sure why he’d want to give grave up like that, but I’ll take the free shot. Going to tech Blooming Elm and Bone Collector, and get Garth midbanded so it would take Hook + Advice to kill him, which is at least an unlikely draw. Arguably I should get Arg maxbanded off all this instead, but I kinda wanna go for the greedy play, so… yeah, Garth free levels #winning


Did I give that impression? :wink:

I get to kill Prynn too? What is going on? I hope this isn’t a bait or something… Going to keep Garth level 6 for hopefully a big splash of double-ancient rune-making next turn. I could have gone LB this turn, but I’m kind of expecting Judgment day or something

@FrozenStorm
While your runes account looks OK, it’d be nice if you could detail a little bit for spectators (ie when you move all runes on BA 1 before breaking Tech III, or one rune on patrolling skeleton).
Thanks :slight_smile:

Pulled Judgment Day on my technician draw, completely derailing my plan to have Prynn slow you down and then Bigby clear the board next turn to buy time for me to recover. Workering Savior Monk on T1 was a mistake… I placed too much emphasis on getting a unit in play alongside Grave. GG WP. @zhavier

@Marto I can definitely do that

@Nekoatl I figured some board clear stallage was imminent, bummer to draw them slightly out of sequence. GG WP!
