So, this is not how I envisioned this Codex starting off, but few codices can start how they’d like against T1 Vandy. I’m honestly not even sure I can get by with this, but PetE just pulled a similar move against me in our game, and I’ve seen it before, so maybe it’ll work out. The basic idea of this codex is to abuse the ability to cheat expensive things into play. Theoretically, with a heroes’ hall, you could conceivably get by with never building any tech, Through the wombo combo of Cala maxband->Predator Tiger + Temporal Distortion + Warpgate Disciple+Now->for instance, Gigadon. In actual fact, I expect to build Tech I most games, and if I ever build Tech II, I can spec Anarchy and play Sanitorium for maximum shenanigans (I actually initially built this deck with the idea of playing for an early sanitorium, which combos really well with Geiger, since he can turn free ephemeral units into straight up free units. Anyway, before I can do anything, I have to figure out how to stall Vandy, so that will be my first order of business.

The problem with the slow start is I need to figure out a way back in. I really needed that Young Treant so I could drop a bunch of units without going down on cards. I kind of forgot that he could build tech I for 1, tbh. The best tries I can come up with are Surprise attack and Now, so I guess I’m going to try teching 2 copies of SA and hoping for the best. I honestly don’t know what else to do.

I tend to think you needed more defense early. You’re heavy on gold, though, and that worries me.

Well, that worked sufficiently well, if not as was hoping for. I have now assumed (or am close to assuming) the role of agressor, yet I maintain my economic advantage. I’m teching Centaur/TD because a) Centaur is good. and b) I can use TD to make him better. tbh, though, I’ll probably just surprise attack again next turn, and build a heroes’ hall. If I can get scav gold, I’ll play Cala as well.

Well, I didn’t expect the sharks. Fortunately you had to max out Zane before the spell so you didn’t get the free levels.

In other words, the sharks were a… Surprise? :wink:


#9

Quiet, you!


#10

Yeah. I was too focused on the free gold, but free levels are effectively 2 free gold. In retrospect I would have been better off midbanding zane, then killing the BC with both sharks, then killing Vandy with Zane and maxing him. Your Skelly would’ve lived, but I’d have a 4/4 Zane at the end of it, rather than 4/1. Also, I’d have had a gold left over to float, and you wouldn’t have gotten the extra gold from Scav (which you forgot to note, btw.)

#11

Also, please mark your tech 1 on your spreadsheet. I didn’t realize you had it. I don’t think it would’ve changed my turn, but still, it’s good form.


#12

So I just realized I forgot to put playful panda back in my deck when you killed it (I just deleted it). I’ve reshuffled since then, so since this is a casual game, we can handle it a couple of ways: either I go back to before the reshuffle and redraw, then redo my last turn, or just leave my previous hand as-is, and just redraw my current hand. If we go back, it’s unlikely to change anything. I actually had two copies of Surprise Attack in my hand (one from before the reshuffle, one from after), so the only way my turn would change is if a) after adding back the panda and redrawing, I don’t draw the other SA, and b) the other SA winds up in slot 2 and gets discarded by your imp. The probability of that happening is 1/7, or about 14%.


#13

No point going back, redrawing the current hand makes sense.

I actually did go back, just to see what would happen. As I suspected, nothing relevant changed in my previous hand, so that turn stands, but my current hand is significantly different (worse). I’ll go back to my previous posts and edit in the changes, just for continuity.

[spoiler]This seems like the best way to keep the pressure up (Treant was probably sub-optimal, but it would’ve been great if I drew into a Feral Strike). If Cala lives (only way she dies that I can think of is Doom Grasp or Sickness+Spreading Plague. I guess any combination of 2 Sickness/Nether Drain works as well. And for that matter a single Nether Drain will stop Feral Strike, though I doubt he’d do that, since it gives lets Cala Heal back to a 5/6), I’ll probably have an answer for the Gorgon next turn.

I wonder if it would have been better to play the Sanitorium instead of the Centaur, and patrol Geiger in Technician. Assuming Cala lived, That would have given me the opportunity for (unboosted) Feral Strike + sanitorium ability-> Fetch 2 immortals (or an immortal and a Rampaging Elephant) -> Immotal kills gorgon, Elephant kills other things. As it is, (boosted) Feral Strike for 2 immortals is still really strong, just not as strong.
