[CAWS19] Round4 charnel_mouse [Balance]/Blood/Strength vs codexnewb [Anarchy]/Strength/Growth

Oh hey, it’s the good Red/Green/Rook deck. Have fun, @codexnewb!

P1T1


Starting hand: 5

Merfolk Prospector
Young Treant
Spore Shambler
Rampant Growth
Rich Earth

Thoughts

Not sure yet what codexnewb’s plan will be, but my early guess is that it ends in “-ship”. I think Spore Shambler is safe in Squad Leader against Zane + Red, then maybe I can buff the Ironbark Treant. I don’t know, I’m not comfortable opening against Zane + Red. Definitely making Rich Earth, far too dangerous to play here.

okay, shamble opening, i imagine ill see an IBT next turn, loaded with a rune. that’s what i would do.

dog/bro wouldnt even trade into that. id need mad man as well, which is MAD, get it…would a brogre, mad man, dog trade be worth it?

i guess worst case is i can patrol dog, mad man, bounce brogre to hand?

Thoughts

Oops, I can’t afford the Ironbark Treant here, can I? I am silly. Well, the Tiger Cub can still trade well. At worst, I get 4 damage on Spore Shambler / Tech I if Zane and Mad Man / Charge show up.

Main worry at Tech I is probably Gunpoint Taxman or Surprise Attack. Oh, or Birds, hmm. Here’s my guess at Tech II before I overthink myself:

Anarchy Growth Strength
Balance + (steal haste) o (how to stop Ancients?) + (no anti-air after Taxmen)
Blood + (bypass Tanks) - (Birds make reaching Ancients hard) - (can’t crash through Barbs)
Strength + (grapple + Pass) + (grapple Ancients) + (Tiny Basilisk stops big Barbs)

Probably too optimistic, but we’ll see. The Growth column is based on wanting an additional cards to deal with Ancients on top of Kidnapping, since they get out of control so quickly. Another reason to like Strength here is that Chaos Mirror doesn’t do much against runed Barbarbarians.

I think the plan is to start with Birds and Tiny Basilisk, then focus on Barbarbarians and Drakk spells. Maybe Moment’s Peace if codexnewb goes for Surprise Attack, but a Tiny Basilisk might discourage that early on. This plan only leaves my own Birds to deal with codexnewb’s, but with Drakk’s frenzy that might be enough.

Holding onto the Tree and Forest’s Favor, since they’re both nice with Barbarbarians.

hmm, let’s get the tech break, but what should i do besides that? im looking at 3 cards in hand, 5 in deck…

so many directions i can go. guess it just depends on what i want. probably ancients and not molac this game. perhaps gunships…let’s play titsafe and bring out rook. if i draw taxman, i still have enough on the board.

I hate Red so much. OK, let’s go for another Tiny Basilisk and Bloodlust, that should help kill things off. No way I can stop codexnewb killing Rook this turn. I’ll make him trade the Ogre into Rook, and hope for a hasted Basilisk kill on his Rook.

Thoughts

I can put the Shambler’s rune on a Bird to let it kill Rook without dying, then Drakk can midband and cast Rampant Growth on the other one to destroy the Tower, also without dying. I’m delaying Tech II to do it, but it seems pretty good for board presence. I might just get wrecked by Sharks here, but hopefully codexnewb was just trying to hold out for his own Bird’s Nest.

Teching in Barbarbarians, after that I can see what codexnewb is up to re: which Midori spells I’d need.

Birds nest in discard still? And potentially 3 tech 1 cards in hand…ugh…

well, building a tower wont do much if those birds dont attack. let’s not do that.

tech up? worst case if they break it? i can max rook? allows me to have 5 cards in hand, 10g next turn, and not skip worker. i obviously could skip worker to get arg out there, but what good would he do? even if a gg 8, midori 6, forest favor shambler 4, shambler hits tech 2, move rune 3, birds break tech 2…they have to skip their tech 2…and go down on cards again.

come on reshuffle, dont let me down now!!!


yes! finally mr frodo, some luck at last.


Well, we can’t have that.

Thoughts

Two main options I can see:

  • Tech up, whittle down the Tech II with Birds.
  • Midori, Forest’s Favor on Spore Shambler, it attacks then passes its rune to the Birds to destroy the Tech II. I have 2 gold left over after worker to play a Tiny Basilisk, save for Tech II next turn, or get a Heroes’ Hall.

I really want to do the second option, partly because it’s stupid, but also because I like delaying the game hitting Tech II, because it gives me more income to pump Drakk for haste. However, I’d need to be prepared for codexnewb’s own Birds coming out, or Gunpoint Taxmen. A Tiny Basilisk’s the most obvious way to deal with some of these. Drakk’s midband or refreshing Bird’s Nest might not be bad either, though, and Thunderclap would be one way to get through to Rook if he blocks him with lots of Tech I units out of nowhere.

The counter-argument is that I need to hit Tech II myself quickly, since codexnewb has a full hand size, and delaying just means he’ll have more gold to pump his Ancients. Elms could also be dangerous, given the size of the units I currently have on the board, and letting him rebuild Tech II without clearing his board again just lets them set up more quickly. I’d have more time to tech in counters, though, and he doesn’t know what I’m going for yet.

OK, I’m going for it. Teching in a replacement Bloodlust and a Kidnapping to increase the chances for Drakk to do something big next turn, and to help deal with Ancients.

hmmm, okay, so assuming they bring out drak next turn, what am i looking at. based on previous games with charnelmouse, i think there are some tiny b’s, maybe crashbombers, possible kidnapping and bloodlust. i know there is a birds nest, so possible trade birds/resummon with nest right away.

there is a chance i can lose my tech 2, but at the cost of more cards from charnelmouse. rook and mad man in tech/elite for sure since shambler will most likely get frenzy next turn.

tempted to drop nautial dog and skip worker, but i think id rather lose the tech 2 and get the extra gold since there is no guarantee i get BA anyways.

expecting to lose the tech 2, hoepfully keep the tower to get more value from it

let’s see what i draw…bringing in surprsise attack and molac to threaten more options, and i wont have reshuffle, so no need to draw right away. ill decide next turn if i need to pivot to gunships instead.

if i bottom deck surprise attack and lose teh tech 2, im probably looking at double taxmen max arg.

Nice draw, no early Barbarbarians. This looks like a good position to tech up from. I can’t clear the patrol, but I can trade Midori and the damaged Bird with Rook, then get my own Bird’s Nest back up for the Bird to come back to block codexnewb’s own remaining Bird. I don’t think there are any tricks I can pull off with Forest’s Favor + Spore Shambler to pump the Birds again, one of them will die regardless. That leaves him a small board, hopefully he’s going just for Ancients without Might of Leaf and Claw. Teching in a Nature Reclaims just in case, and a Colossus to try and close the game out quickly. I’ll probably need to tech the other Kidnapping, and a Grappler or the other Colossus. We’ll see.

well that was unexpected, i think ill take it though.

option 1. gg 11, mid zane 6, gpt 4, charge 2, kill rook 3, max zane shove and kill bird 4, mm/zane break tech two, birds trade, gpt 2, arg, 0

pro-tech 2 break, board presence, birds gone
con - incoming drak with a vengence.

option 2 - gg 11, zane 9, gpt 7, charge, 5, surprise attack 0, gpt->rook, zane/shark->tech 2, mm/shark->HH,

pro, break HH and tech 2
con - less patrol, less board presence, they wont be using HH anyways next turn, birds still around…

givent he HH is useless next turn anyways, and the big win of getting birds off the field, let’s go with option1.

patrol-wise, trying to protect tech 2 and zane if i can. throw arg out there.

nothing id like to tech at this point. id rather go tech 2 at this point.

Ouch. I think my least bad option here is killing the backline Taxman with Bloodlust, even though it means Drakk will die for my Kidnapping next hand. It’s not looking good. Spore Shambler goes in front so a buffed Wisp can’t kill it for free, Drakk goes in Elite so the Taxman dies if attacking anything other than the Shambler.

i think worst case for me here would be mirodi and moments peace. i dont too much if im facing down a max rook. either, way, i dont have much choice, need to break the tree and tech 2, build my board.

Remember to take Drakk’s base damage, although it might not matter for long.

I think I just want to float it, even with the Taxman around.

GG! i think i had an unfair advantage having been your guinea pig for practicing this codex. although it still felt like i was stumbling from one turn to the next.

Oh, man. I was hoping to at least have my Tech II stand so I could play Colossus and Moment’s Peace for a last shot at a base kill. Well played! I was hoping going for Strength II would throw you off, but it never stayed standing.
