[CAWS20] Round4: charnel_mouse [Demonology/Disease]/Discipline vs Bomber678 [Finesse]/Anarchy/Strength

@Bomber678 It’s shark-clubbing time. GL, HF!

P1T1

Starting hand: 5

Poisonblade Rogue
Jandra, the Negator
Thieving Imp
Graveyard
Sacrifice the Weak

Thoughts

Not sure what to expect here. Bomber’s got really aggressive options in Anarchy and Finesse, but can also have Rook help him stall for Gunships. Abomination should be good against Anarchy and Finesse, since they use lots of little folk, but Disease II is a little slow for preventing Tech III. We’ll see what happens.

I think I open with Orpal here if Bomber’s opening with Rook, - runes help chip him down and can deal with Birds in the short term too. He might get a hero kill here if he uses two spells, but running into Orpal hurts more. Going with Sickness and Plague Spitter, next turn I’ll think about Sparring Partner.

Think

Tricky turn here. Trying to stay alive without giving up board or hand size.
I think he can’t kill Rook without serious resource loss here, which will hopefully allow me to respond by teching up.

Thoughts

Shame I didn’t draw Sickness too, I could wipe Bomber’s board without losses. Not worried about Birds, I do need to worry about Thunderclap / Entangling Vines / Nimble Fencer.

  1. Wipe it anyway, with Deteriorate on Thief -> Javelineer + StW is 4 gold, then everyone else helps kill Rook, but I lose the Haunt, and I go down to a three-card hand. Is wipe + midband Orpal enough to make that worth it? I spend 4g 4c to destroy/gain 7g 2c, so +3g -2c. Killing Orpal then requires midband Zane + Bloom, or Surprise Attack, which prevents teching up. Oh, or double Fencer, then he can still tech up.
  2. Plague Spitter, maybe a Heroes’ Hall? Safer against hasted units / midband Rook. Instead, it’s vulnerable to Entangling Vines. Bomber would be able to take out my board while still teching up.
  3. Plague Spitter, Skeleton Javelineer, Deteriorate Brick Thief, maybe have Imp kill Tenderfoot. Midband Rook can still kill Orpal if he has Thunderclap or Vines, but that doesn’t leave enough gold for Tech II. I go down to a 3-card hand, however.

What do I expect to Bomber to have teched? He likes his Sharks, but he also likes delaying to at least Tech II, so maybe I don’t expect Fencers? Then I’d want to wipe the board. Not much left on the board for myself, but Tech II / maxband Orpal / saccing Imp + Sickness might see me through for the next turn. If not, I have no units in hand that turn, so I’d be in serious trouble. I’ll try it anyway. Teching Gorgon to get my hand size back up, if I lose Orpal I’ll need to add Dark Pact too.

P1T4

Starting hand: 3

Sickness
Graveyard
Summon Skeletons

Thoughts

I made a mistake teching Gorgon, going straight to Disease II after opening with Orpal is far too slow for dealing with an Anarchy rush. I’ve played myself into a corner, here.

I really don’t want to give Bomber a card, since it gives him more chance to draw something hasted and kill Orpal, but if I put him in patrol instead then Zane can shove him. At least the maxband makes Surprise Attack a bad idea.

I’m not sure what to tech.

  • Reversal seems good to stop Bomber blocking with a Steam Tank.
  • Sparring Partner would be nice to help Orpal hit things, but it’s too slow right now.
  • Martial Mastery to help line up a Death and Decay / maintain hand size.
  • Rambasa Twins are another non-II unit, but they’re a card-efficient way to protect Orpal until I draw Death and Decay.
  • Second Death and Decay fully commits me to hoping Orpal survives.
  • Abomination to deal with anything that isn’t a Steam Tank or a Gunship, and render Surprise Attack useless.

I’ve probably got another turn until I need to worry about Tech II units, so Steam Tank isn’t a problem just yet, and I’ve got time to get to 9 workers before casting Death and Decay.

Drawing 4 from 12, chance of drawing a Death and Decay too early is 1/3. If I tech an extra one, chance to draw them both early is 1/11, I think. Maybe I have to tech a second one, just to make sure I can land it. No, too dependent on Orpal surviving. I’ll put in Abomination, and hope I can push through with heroes.

Holding on to Summon Skeletons over Graveyard, I might need emergency patrollers in the face of obliterate / Surprise Attack.

Think

I was thinking “He has no haste, I can just play taxman and float a tonne of cash and put it in technician for big gains!” and then I remembered Death and Decay exists. So Rook gets to stop orpal from destroying my tech 2.
I mean really he’s probably just going to smash aboms onto the table, but you gotta account for the eventualities, you know?
Anyway hopefully I can tech up next turn and then just windmill a gunship and win the game. Hopefully.

Thanks, I forgot.

P1T5

Starting hand: 4

Skeleton Javelineer
Reversal
Sickness
Summon Skeletons

Thoughts

Only a 1/2 chance of drawing Death and Decay next turn, I don’t think I’m going to make it in time. Casting Reversal on Taxman: Rook can walk past Grave, but can’t kill Orpal by himself. Orpal can then render him useless. Midbanding Grave instead of putting down the Javelineer to save on cards. I’m really vulnerable to Surprise Attack here, so hopefully Bomber either doesn’t have it or wants to jump straight to Tech III instead. Teching in Versatile Style for the remote chance of disabling Gunships. Hoping for no Sharks and no Monkeys.

Strange that he didn’t hit abom. It’ll happen this turn then, for sure. I still don’t think he can destroy my tech 3 though, so hopefully I draw my gunship off technician before I lose. I also just realised surprise attack is useless vs abom, so that was a bad tech. Oops.

Thoughts

As expected. I will play Abomination too late to deal with Sharks, and draw Sacrifice the Weak too early to deal with Gunships, unless I get really lucky with Thieving Imp. Anything interesting I can do if I build a Tech Lab with the spare gold? I think I’m better off holding on to it. Taxman can’t be hasted to steal it, and if I tech more cards then I probably want Martial Mastery or Dark Pact to help with my hand size. Or Sparring Partner + Plague Lab, try to keep ahead of Gunships with Runes. I’ll try that.

Think

Ok, gunship on the table. I’ll clear most of his board, shame I don’t have an extra damage to take out abom without saccing rook life, but it’s necessary. Surprise attack up next and I can make a big swing for his base.

Evidently not. However, obliterate can’t hit Spitter over the Twins, since it has higher attack while in Elite.

Unfortunately for you, it can. Obliterate only specificies the lowest Tech level.
