I don’t need Garth right now, and he’s way down on cards. Bring on the maxband Blood stuff, let’s get that Horror out of the way. I can tech a surprise attack for the technician if I need it.

Land Octopus can’t patrol, it seems (I actually read the card this time!)


#44

My Thoughts

Teching a Spirit of the Panda and a Maruader, both things that can hopefully help me make a big move. Hopefully killing Garth or that Ogre!

SUCCESS! What a pull. So we kill Garth, but what else? Deteriorate + Worker? Maxband Arg for WE? No, I think the other monkey killing a skeleton means we limit Garth’s horde of free cards. Could kill Zombie, as that ensures Wisp in SQL + Arg behind keeps the tech 2 safe to non-barrows, but I’m willing to risk the deteriorate. Probably will end up losing SotP monkey, but so be it. We’ll see where this goes!



#46
For FrozenStorm

I was under the impression that technician draws happen before teching cards at the beginning of your turn.


#47

two thoughts.

  1. i think you reshuffle, then tech in your cards.

  2. for ogre recruiter, if i take control of disguised monkey with spirit of the panda, do i get the gold effect and the healing 1 as well? I feel like I saw a ruling one time where that wasnt teh case. LMK your thoughts.


#48

I was under the impression the choice of ordering technician and teching cards in was up to the player on a reshuffle.

If that’s not right I might be conceding lol

As for the monkey, recruiter doesn’t persuade tech 2 units so not relevant in this case, but I think I keep the 1g and you get the healing? I remember it being a question also


#49

lol, you’re totally right on teh recruiter. don’t know how i misread that.

Rulebook says

• Ready — Ready (straighten) all your cards.
• Upkeep — Get 1 gold for each of your workers.
• Main phase — Do most of your stuff!
• Discard/Draw Phase — Discard your hand, draw
that many cards + 2, but capped at 5.
• Tech Phase — Put 2 cards from your codex into
your discard pile, face down. You don’t have to
finish this until the start of your next turn. "

I honestly dont know on this one. it seems to make sense to me that if you can adjust your tech up until the sart of your turn, then it’s essentially the start of your turn. so if you need a draw from technician dying during my turn, does that trigger before? my head hurts.


#50

i say based on that, you probably do have the choice. ill play on assuming that, so no need to concede just yet.

okay, bummer that i misread ogre. oh well. ill just have to try and use it as a tech breaker or as a threat to ward off tech 1/0’s.

not much else to do this turn. just clear his stuff and patrol. ex[ecting surprise attack at some point, but fortunately, he cant max zane AND drop that. so lets see what happens.

GG, that’s not working for me lol :wink: I don’t think Anarchy is a good route at tech 2, at least against what you’re bringing :wink:


#54

alright, lets give you as P2 one more try. i think the strength of your codex is rushing molac of BA’s, so im walling up here to get ready for the worst.

100% agree, better off with slow-playing a horde. The Anarchy plan just doesn’t work that great in this matchup. Maybe a different matchup would go better.

okay…with haunt off the table i cant get the garth kill right now. he's going to just keep bringing the units with bc's and lb's i assume. a turn 3 teh 2 and :LB would be pretty ideal for him. and not much i can do for the time being.

lets try some spam of my own. mirkwood allies. ill just mid cal for now. also teching in huntress for sparkshot.
