Hmmmm, Mox in lookout means I can’t Wither it without skipping a worker but I don’t think I want to do that right now. We can Wither it later and be fine, I think. For right now, I think we have to believe that some combination of Battlesuits/Nullcraft/Fading Argonaut are on their way. On the plus side, playing any two of them prevents him from building Tech I. I think I’ll patrol in Scavenger to bait him into giving me gold. That seems fine.

Looks like he has a ton of direct damage, picked Jaina as hero, and has good odds of picking a Tech 2 that tosses +1/+1 tokens around. Soo… Vortoss Emblems & Gilded Glaxx! Those are the best counters I can think of, and then we’ll try to roll into Past Tech 2 to bring out the STG and slow everything to a crawl on his side. Now to survive that long…

Okay, that’s a pretty non-aggressive beginning. I think we can play the Turtle and Bloom Jaina for some pressure. He can’t get through the turtle without using Nullcraft + Mox and that doesn’t leave him with much of anything else. I’ll grab Lobbers first so that I can sneak in the damage to his Tech I if need be.

Letting Jaina through might’ve been a huge mistake - was counting on 2 dmg, not 3. Tech I will blow up at some point, hopefully not at an inopportune time

Hmmmmmm, the Emblem prevents me from taking out the Mox, but I think that’s okay. For the moment, they’ve got a pretty undeveloped board so I think we can just leave it be and murder the Glaxx for a card. The Turtle now needs to be attacked by Mox + Prynn/Nullcraft. If they do that, they can tech up before me, but that’s not the worst. Then again, Tech II Present is so explosive that maybe it is. I think I should put the turtle into Technician and try to repair my handsize. Unless they suicide Prynn to bring out Geiger and Now! something, I think Jaina is likely to survive.

Vortoss Emblem on the Glaxx prevents this.

Was banking on my opponent levling up Jaina, and that worked out great. So far the Prynn counter plan is humming along. Tech I will blow up soon but by then I hope to have Tech 2 rolling. Hardest part is choosing which counters to Tech - Assimilate or Undo? I chose Undo b/c Slow-Time-Generator is going to make the Garrison difficult to play, and Undo/Vortoss will play well together. Vortoss to prevent token movement, Undo to bounce Drill Sergeants with lots of tokens

I definitely did not foresee Origin Story or Past as a Tech plan. That does mean we have to prevent Tech III since that will destroy me. For the moment, I don’t mind destroying his Tech I since I can and I’m not really worried about the response yet. I don’t know that it would make much of a difference for me to wound his Tech II yet. By the time I can destroy it, my engine should be online.

Assuming I draw Rememberer and Time Spiral on next turn - Rememberer & Tech 3. Time Spiral to pull a Golgort out of discard. If Rememberer lives another turn, Ebbflow Archon comes from tech. If not, draw (hopefully) the Ebbflow Archon I’m adding this turn. Taking a bit of a risk on the draw and gold, but seemed worth it to maintain reasonable board position. Now! is a bit risky but would be great if I pulled Archon

Okay, the Engine is almost fully complete. I’ve let him draw a card and I’m just fully hoping that he doesn’t already have Assimilate and steals the Garrison. If he does, I can probably weather the storm, but it would be hard.

I mis-calculated the gold by one. LOL. Fail indeed! Oh well - onward and upward, eh? I could have worker’d and Tech 3’d this turn, but board position would’ve been rocky and odds of pulling Ebbflow were only so-so. Turns out I pulled it anyway, but nbd; this next turn if Rememberer survives, I’ll pull another Golgort and refresh the Rememberer, and add Tech 3.

Prynn only has 1 attack at this point in the turn, and thus could not kill lobber.

However, seeing as “Prynn kills Theif, Mox kills lobber” was an equally viable move, no action is needed. Just be sure to check in the future :wink:

Excellent. We’re locked and loaded and in a pretty good position. He doesn’t have enough board that I’m worried about much of anything and I can now cycle through so much of my deck that I can keep destroying his buildings basically no matter what.

2 Likes

I don’t follow the 2 wrecking balls - isn’t there only one in the deck? How’s it possible to throw 2 at a time?

I teched 2 copies of the spell and I then I used them both before my reshuffle and when I reshuffled due to garrison draws, I was able to find and use them again. Does that clarify? I guess technically I’m not casting them at the same time, I’m just abbreviating the steps into one since I would cast one immediately followed by the other.

Oh I see, I thought that was in the starter deck, not a separate spell

I think I’ll concede - won’t be possible to come back at this point. GG! I should have assimilated the garrison but wasn’t quite sure what your deck was supposed to do. Didn’t realize that was so core to the game plan as opposed to other possible routes

Yeah, I made this deck to focus on building destruction super thoroughly. Cycling 4 0-cost cards through the garrisons is dark magic.

@zhavier I’ve won!
