Troublesome opening. I do have Deteriorate ready, though, so I think I deploy Haunt and Imp, then Deteriorate and Haunt to trade with Panda next turn if it stays behind backlines. Thing about zhavier’s Codex is that I’m safe from Calamandra in exchange for being vulnerable to tempo swings from Fencers. Argonauts seem like the order of business to double my effective tempo-holding abilities.

Fencers imminent, that’s the main play I see here. Either that or Spirit of the Panda. Gonna hulk up behind Argonauts, and I think Haunt + Deteriorate is how I kill the Panda. 2 gold for a hero, 2 gold for tech 1, leaves me 2 gold to spend on something else. I think I just skeleton up with Garth. Midgame I can transition into Drakk and Kidnapping if I see Panda. Or, alternate line: I think it’s better if I Deteriorate Squad Lead, Imp trades, Haunt kills, Garth puts a skeleton up in patrol, and Green doesn’t get to play buff spells. I like that much better. It’s a little weak to double Fencer or Fencer + Rampant Growth, but double Fencer is a less likely draw. And I can use Patrol Zone bonuses to mitigate it.

Taking a chance he wont have bloodlust or now yet, which seems reasonable

Bummer, you had one of the two things I was afraid of. The other being double Fencer.

I can Deteriorate and Haunt to kill off the Fencer, which seems really important! That’ll leave just Arg plus the Treant, and the Treant can’t attack. That leaves me with 6 gold. I can Tech 2 and hero, seems good! Geiger is probably better to bring in here? I’ll prep Tricycle and TD, then. Tricycle can get past annoying blockers. Patrolling so that Geiger trades with Fencer.

This is a bad spot. I could kill Geiger, get a water elemental and hope for the best, or build my tech 2 and get a leaping lizard instead of elemental, but leave geiger up :confused:

Really should have just patrolled in scavenger so I could max Garth this turn. My options are double Argo, tech lab/float; max Garth and skip worker to draw and kill Treant with Hyperion (or Ele with Tricycle); one Argo, Garth, Drakk. Max Garth into worker skip yields the most tempo and I think it’s worth. My next turn will not be strong, so I need to put up significant pressure here.

Wow that went horribly. Worker, Skeleton and eat to draw Deteriorate, Summon Skeletons leaves me with 3 gold. I guess that’s Thieving Imp? Gotta turtle up here and rebuild. Can’t even break Tree. This all went sideways fast, and my next draw is so uneven. Kidnapping might help me steal away that Starlet, though.

I just looked at my spreadsheet and realized I have one too many Tricycloids in the deck because I forgot to clear the Tricycloid I teched and then fetched with Garth on Turn 4 out of the discard pile. I’m not sure what to do now.

@CarpeGuitarrem Can you DM me w/ a link to the spreadsheet or screenshot? I’m not sure either but I feel like seeing the card pile current states will help inform

well, he reshuffled and drew 4, so take one out and redraw?

DM sent away

Yea no Zhav is right, I didn’t notice you’d just fresh reshuffled. Toss the extra out, put your hand in your draw pile, then draw a fresh four and continue. Having had it in the past turn isn’t a huge enough deal and is caught late enough that I think it’s fine to write off and play through

Well, the only other effect it had was to delay his reshuffle by 1, so, he might have reshuffled a turn sooner?
