He can get a hero kill with Grappling Hook, but should be fine for me with the $1 off-colour spell cost, scav bonus, and follow up with Basilisks.

He could STW, to kill my Tiger, but if not, it’s a heavy Cost to get through. I can tap Cal again next Turn.

#7

Have a good one too !


#8

How did you end up with 1 card to discard


#9

3 cards initially in hand, 1 discarded to Imp, 1 workered, leaving 1 to discard. The Tiger summoned by Cal’s maxband comes from Codex not from hand.


#10

I waa confused by this line
"Thieving Imp, discard #2 of 2 - ($0)"


#11

Zane should be 2/1, but it probably doesnt affect @codexnewb’s turn


#12

Your Tech1 is on 4HP after Haunt ping last turn.

Options after playing StW to clear Tiger and bringing out Tiny Basilisk:

  • Zane suicides into Cal, play Garth, Haunt and Imp kill Cal with levels to Garth. I’m left with lvl3 Garth + Basilisk vs empty board
  • Zane and Imp break Tech1, I’m left with lvl1 Zane + Basilisk + Haunt + Imp + $2 float vs lvl 5 Cal with his Tech1 down.

Both look good, but going for the second option, Basilisk + max Zane next turn will be difficult for him to handle, and stops him getting to Tech2 anytime soon.

Teching Potent Basilisk and Executioner. If he can get to Tech2, his deck threatens to put a Soul Stone on a powerful unit (eg Rampaging Elephant), so deathtouch and removal are good ways for me to respond/prevent.

Stall two more turns, gaining cards, and floating gold, Next turn ill tech in max Cal and Set spells if they are still alive.

#14

Realized I should have paid $1 off-colour penalty last turn to cast StW with Zane. So if it’s OK with you I’ll continue with $1 instead of $2 float.


#15

That’s fine. It won’t affect my turn.


#16

I decided to come out super strong on the Hero side…this will either be an epic game, or a total blowout. Either way, Calamandra is super fun to play.


#17

Tricky thing with Cal’s max is you have to exhaust to summon the Tiger. So feels something of a waste to have a hero with 4/5 stats on the board that’s not attacking each turn.

Down to 2 cards, but can rebuild with Garth’s mid and max, and next turn is the last I need to worker.

Was also tempted to skip a worker for Zane->max shoves and kills Sensei, pay $1 to deteriorate Tiger, Zane kills tiger and survives as a 4/1, Basilisk trades with Cal. More attacking board setup, 5 card hand, but paid the extra $1 for deteriorate and lost out on the 2 level bonus for hero kill, and well as a worker down.


[/spoiler][/details]


#18

Deteriorate costs you 1 because Cal gives all my units Resist 1.


#19

Good point, redone with a Skeleton instead of a Tiny Basilisk

Dude, what a fun, weird game. You’re definitely right about Cal having to exhaust to use her ability too. I was really hoping you wouldn’t draw STW two turns back, but that’s how it goes. Let’s see how it plays out.

I’m screwed. Cal was fun to play, but it put me way to far down to come back from. Lesson learned.
