Jandra and deteriorate in second hand, bummer. Rook is obnoxious to deal with early on, I’ll want Doom Grasp for sure. I need to put miracle grow on the back foot somehow despite token spam, which probably means my own token spam or crash bombers. Next turn I’ll have to choose between LB and Doom Grasp, with Sentry to deal with possible birds. Do I consider gunning for Mine as well? Surprise blowout gold is a great way to kick down the door and take initiative.

Anyhow, this turn, my only actual unit that patrols is Javelineer. If I’m okay going down on cards I can Graveyard Javelineer, but that’s 50/50 to lose to Rambaster. Hero into Javelineer (like Geiger) holds up better. What about hero, graveyard, haunt? Hard to get 4 attack (Rambaster, Scorch, midband Rook) and it requires a fair amount of resources.

Sweet, I can work with this. Not going to bother Deteriorating the Mad Man, I can Haunt trade with doggo for free, Imp to discard cards, tech 1. Let’s try Mine and something else, I think I can maintain enough board advantage to get gold out of Mine.

okay, so my hand is getting wrecked regardless here. bummer i didnt pull charge. probably just need to tech up right away.

hoping i dont get the tech draw, but if i do, ill have some options.

lvls to rook in case they want to trade geiger.

board presence, opportunity to tech up, who needs cards?

Replay imp, haunt and deteriorate ogre, play Sentry seems good. Teching Now! and Doom Grasp to give me options next turn, potentially. I could have flickered to double discard, but I’m not willing to skip worker yet. This is set up really nicely to drop Mine next turn, I’m keeping heavy board control. Also, I think I’ll Deteriorate, Haunt and Geiger kill GPT. This lets me really choke off CN’s card draw going into a reshuffle. It’ll make their next tech choice very awkward. If I do that, I need to consider midbanding Geiger to avoid a free midband Rook kill. In that world I don’t play Sentry and I do patrol with Imp in a slot. Rook still gets a Graveyard kill but I’ve gotten a ton of mileage out of that. Next turn, I can throw 3 gold at Mine plus Javelineer and still tech up, so I don’t actually need Scav gold. Imp goes in Technician, then.

In two turns, I can slingshot into maxband Garth and probably get a Rook kill. That’s just 7 gold (Garth, Nether Drain, 4 levels), and Mine lets me throw more things out if it doesn’t get bopped. If Geiger stays up that’s a free flicker and a huge potential swing with my tech 2s. That’s the turn I’m banking on.

the possibility of StW enters in, with that tech draw. Geiger clears patrol zone, StW clears BRO, I have 4 gold for tech 2. I’m feeling good about that, no credible threat from MoLaC, I can bust tech 2 next turn. R&D is probably not needed here but I should throw in TD in preparation. Blood is the way here. Does CN need Rook spells or did they just want to fizzle Geiger max?

wow, i can’t believe this worked out so well. hero kill for levels and tech break. so this is what it feels like to have some vital draws go your way…? jk.

my gameplan here is to…throw everything i can for molac…? this game feels like the last one: just stumbling from one turn to the next.

teching double dinosize in case i can boost a bird for the base 1 shot.

To quote Geralt: “Hmm. Fuck.”

I probably lose here, but let’s say I’m gonna make one last try. Base damage is my only way out. I can also stall with skeletons. Gotta tech Crash Bombers, I think. Birds are the end of me, unfortunately. Anyhow, to keep MoLaC rolling as slow as possible, Zane has to die now. Max Drakk (7), Sentry (9), trade with Zane. I skip worker.
