Really awkward opening hand for me… can’t lay out early aggression, which is very unfortunate. I’m not sure what strategy to pursue as of yet.

I can’t easily kill river here, and I could lose my board to discord. However, I need to put out aggression to prevent him building tech 2 first.

Think

This is certainly a tricky turn… that tower was a good response, and he’s skipped worker to put out incredible board presence. I’m in danger of getting board wiped here and losing my tech 2… So I’m teching spells that I can hopefully draw into to get me out of trouble.

Think

What I’m learning is that bloom river is really strong… I am in yet another dangerous situation. I have to try and make it to tech 3, but the likelyhood of him finding one damage is pretty high.
I feel like I’ve missed some tricks… perhaps morningstar pass is the true strategy against his deck. Or maybe finesse? I don’t know… I’m starting to think Anarchy might be too slow. Or maybe it’s just cause I’m not teching enough haste!

Thoughts

im starting to like my deck a lot… feel like i made right choices… i wanna believe fire can actually somewhat respond to rook… very happy with how i managed the final games… everything went smooth as planned… take zhavier’s systematic approach and combine with my aggressive all in style…

GG! @FrozenStorm I did it! Gotta love Codex… so precise down to 1 pt… been thinking about Codex day and night… hours grinded paid off :slight_smile:

ARRRRRRRRRGH!

Well, I have no choice but to admit defeat. Three losses, every one to you.
You are truly the champion of Codex. Congratulations.

Yea, maybe Fire was the answer to Rook. I usually hate playing same line game to game but I thought firebats were solid play against your deck and why I repeated them in the final matches. I tried to spend more time pre game than in game and think about the gameplan rather than going spontaneous like I used to. I tried to sprinkle some zhavier over me. Thanks to @Legion and @Nekoatl for training and helping me in deck selection.
