I’m approaching half a dozen games of Codex now, and I just feel like there’s something I’m missing about how to play this game. I seem to find myself way behind on board position over and over and over, and I can’t seem to track back and figure out where I’m going wrong.
I’m playing a forum game now (http://forums.sirlingames.com/t/casual-fineredmist-monowhite-vs-jeff-monogreen/1028) and while I have a mess of cash in hand, I’m already down a card and after three turns each (I went first), my board is empty except for Safe Attacking, while my opponent has an 0/2 Young Treant at Squad Leader, a 3/4 Centaur at Scavenger, and a 1/3 Argagarg and 0/1 Wisp chilling in the backfield. With his ample access to silly buffs, and my inability this turn to even clear away his patrollers, I feel like I’m in a very, very tough spot again.
Is there anyone out there who would be willing to follow along with this forum game (and/or play other forum games with me) and talk me through the decision making process via PM and help me understand fundamentally how to get ahead in this game?
