Had the choice between Jandra and the Imp. I'm going with Jandra for her overpower ability and because I might be able to set up my own Zane play next turn and maybe steal some levels. I'm not very familiar with the Finesse starters, so I'm hoping I don't overlook an obvious play or ploy.

Drakk was going in the SL position, but a Wither/Messenger play might give up 2 free levels and no DMG done by me. So I’ll spend $1 and block with the Jav. Going down on cards early. I must keep in mind that giving Technician draws to my opponent while only holding four cards myself is counterintuitive to winning the game. My initial thoughts on this matchup- his Codex is almost a mirror. Finesse has better Tech 1 units than Sickness. I can see a Tech 1 Finesse haste plan nicely transitioning into a Tech 2 Blood haste plan. Then possibly some Tech 3 Gunships. I haven’t looked at zhavier’s previous games. My last two competitors barely complied with the information my overpaid, underworked scouting unit supplied me. Of course, I’ve played three games in three different ways during the tourney myself. Going off script seems to be the script. I’m Teching my usual GPT, but am going with a cheap blocker for the second card. My future will be full of Fencers, I’m sure. Final note- I’m going with Drakk instead of Orpal out of the gate. I want to put some early pressure on him, and Drakk seems the more likely of those two to accomplish the task.

Self-explanatory turn. I’m just keeping up with the Jones’. Looks like he’s going for chump blockers just like I was going to do. I probably should have Teched two Tech 2 units; I decided to go with 1 Tech 1 unit as well. Just in case something happens to my Tech 2 building. Also, it’s the Crypt Crawler, so it’s got Sparkashot, which I highly value if I going to be facing a ton of cheap little units. I hope he doesn’t top deck two Fencers.

I could go down two different paths at this juncture. I can clear the board and build my Tech 2, or I can put out a host of chump blockers and build my Tech 2. I suppose not constructing the building would be option number 3. I’m going with the first option for two reasons. Evil Zane will be off the board along with the ability to cast Surprise Attack (or Maximum Anarchy) which both mitigate a small hand size. More importantly, this plan keeps five cards cycling in my hand. Looking over Anarchy’s cards, the Sanatorium is another way to mitigate a small hand size. While playing this game, I’ve seen a Sanatorium on the board exactly once. Which happens to be the same number of times I’ve seen a Rickety Mine.

Everyone underestimates the rickety mine, admittedly, its a total and complete gamble, but getting heads twice? yea thats a game breaker. Only thing I have to worry about here is bloodlust, and its probably fine, because it shouldnt be enough to break my tech 2 and whatever it is that kils drakk will be dead.

I'm worried about his sneaky, invisible units more than his little frenzied units. What you can't see can hurt you. Actually, I'm worried about his Gunships. The Tech 3 building may come online next turn. I don't see any way to stop the Gunships beyond trying to keep him at one or two cards in hand. Maybe the turn he draws them I'll have broken his Tech 3. Not much else I can do. I'll have to use Zane to move one of his guys out of the Tech spot next turn. I don't want to increase his draw by even one. The Imp stealing a card helps out. This is going to be close, but I may still have a chance.

So, break his tech 2 again, and get my tech 3 up? Oh, or get a card… tough call… I’m going for the card. Nice! Now, block or break more tech buildings… i’m mildly concerned about kidnapping, so blocking isn’t really an answer. I’ll just break everything.

I can only take out one Hero. His Zane can kill Orpal in one hit, allowing a unit to come behind and continue to batter/break my buildings. I'm going to guess that he has a hasted unit that can do just that. Drakk can't kill Orpal without a spell or some unit help, but he does allow for a hasted unit if there's isn't one in the queue. Tough choice, but I'm going with the Zane kill. Leaving the frenzy ability on the board may prove troublesome, but this game is so far in the tank it's doubtful that it matters.

funny thing about these Zane trades, I get to use my Zane before he does.

Hmm, no gunship yet. Let’s hope for the best. Worst case he lays down some tech 1 units to block.

I can’t think of a compelling reason to continue this. I’m unable to break both your Tech 2 and Tech 3 buildings, and even if I killed Drakk and took out the Tech 3, it might buy me one turn before annihilation. Your robust economy allowed you to work the hell out of your heroes, which mitigated the card starvation I had ended up hoping for. I don’t know if bringing out the Imp on the first turn, instead of Jandra, would have made a difference. I don’t think I necessarily misused her, but things sure went sideways quick in this one.

GG!

I might have extended it another turn if I could have broken his Tech 2 and Tech 3 buildings. Killing Drakk and breaking his Tech 3 wasn't a sure way to stave off defeat (if he has hasted Tech 2 units along with the five damage I was leaving on the board). Plus, I really couldn't come up with a compelling reason to prolong this. The mine is useful as long as it's churning out the gold. The extra funds allowed him to consistently and effectively Maxband his heroes, which in turn mitigated the fact that he only had three cards in hand most of the game. Nicely done, but I'm not convinced it's a consistent avenue to winning. Who am I kidding, though? I'm gonna try it the next time Codex hits the table around here.


#18

2 gunships arrive and destroy your base. GG!

Alternately, you destroyed my tech 3 and I am stuck making bad choices with my heroes. But yea, hard to know I had both in hand, and hard to bet I woldnt eventually keep it up and have gunship in hand.

You put up a pretty good fight.


#19

I think it was a done deal even if I had taken out your Tech 3. I couldn’t take out the Tech 2 as well, and with all the Haste units that you could pull out, it was just a matter of one, maybe two turns before it was over. I thought I could strangle you with a limited card draw, but you effectively mitigated my plan with the Maxed out Heroes you kept throwing at me. It was an unexpected game plan that I, personally, have never seen before. One I am likely to try myself the next time Codex hits the table. I’ve used the Sanatorium before, but never the Mine.


#20

The mine is a real gamble. On the bright side, no one ever breaks your mine, so worrying about protecting it is usually not to much of a concern. I mean, if its too easy it might get broken, but its usually pretty safe. The real problem is getting only 1g and having it break the very next turn. so, 50% of the time, its pretty good, netting 4g or more, and 50% of the time its pretty terrible, netting you 1g.

EricFs change to give it haste is actually really reasonable. You spend a card to get 1g the turn its played, which definitely fits the theme of blood. 50% of the time it sticks around and your opponent really should worry that it will spiral out of control if they leave it alone. In my opinion, rickety mine isnt even as good as Verdant Tree, a tech 0. the sole Tech 1 building really should be better at its job.
