The way I see it, I had three options for this turn:
(1) build a tech III and turtle behind a Steam Tank. That puts IsotopeX in the awkward position of worrying about two tech buildings, but he could probably deal with the Steam Tank with his current board and play a bigger threat of his own next turn.
(2) bring in maxband Zane, shove the IPN out of SQL for Jaina to trade with, kill scavenger for +1 gold, then play Steam Tank. That leaves him with an all but empty board, but Zane on 1 health is an easy kill for the bird - giving IsotopeX free levels and, more importantly, keeping me from playing two of my teched spells next turn.
(3) bring in maxband Drakk, and clear his patrol with a hasted unit and Jaina. This way I’m only left with Drakk on board, but I can play another hasted unit next turn, plus any of my teched spells - which should be enough to stop even two big units. So that’s what I ended up going with.

Finally, I teched the Gunships despite not building tech III yet, in the hopes that I’ll get to build it next turn, before the reshuffle. I probably won’t be teching anything else this game, for better or worse.

Well, I certainly can’t let you keep max level Drakk out there.

Ouch! I totally forgot about Snapback being a thing that exists. That was a big turn, and very possibly GG, but let’s play it out and see what happens.

I have to play and patrol both units from my hand, to keep Rook and the bird from easily blowing up a tech building. Can’t believe all 3 of my heroes are out of comission at once!
Skipping a worker for a chance to reshuffle with the technician draw, but my odds of getting a Gunship are pretty low even if that happens.
Oh well, at least I’ll get another turn before he has the chance to Earthquake me into oblivion…


#45

Yeah, drawing into Snapback was lucky timing. My surviving bird is doing great work, getting revenge for his fallen buddy.

Costly turn but I could not allow a Gunship. I expect Grave could die here, but with luck I’ll get an Oathkeeper which should allow a solid push. OK, I didn’t want BOTH Oathkeepers…if he destroys Tech III and prevent me from building one, I’m probably done for. This turn will likely consist of an Oathkeeper plus Snapback, because I’m guessing I’ll see a hero levelling up.

Building a tech III while teching 0 cards, means he might already have an Oathkeeper in hand. Gunship can beat that, but only if I draw it, plus keep my own tech III alive. In other words, I have to break his tech III by any means necessary. Too bad I couldn’t afford a Kidnapping on his bird instead of summoning Zane (if only he had floated 1 gold!), that would have been a nice way to get rid of that flying pest.
The question is what do I do with my final 1 gold. I could midband Zane to heal him, and keep him from being picked off by the bird. But patrolling Nautical Dog is my only hope of keeping Rook from breaking my tech III… again. Of course, he might’ve redrawn Snapback, which would make that a moot point. On the off-chance that he hasn’t though, War Drums could be an alternative win condition for me. What the hell, I’ll go ahead and grab a couple of them.


#47

At this point, I propose changing the name of the spell to “Snapdrakk”.

I sure don’t like being hero-less, but if that’s what it takes to get a Gunship in the air, it’s worth it.

The turn you blew my Tech 3, I happened to have both of the Oathkeepers in my hand.


#52

Yeah, I got worried the second I noticed you’d built Tech 3 without teching any cards the same turn.

By the way, did you notice that the 1st T2 unit only got played after Gunship was already out? This was a very hero-centered game, on my part at least, which is why that first Snapback play left me with zilch the turn afterwards. Not sure how you could’ve capitalized on that better, though.

One thing I was absolutely unequipped to deal with was the Safe Attacking Birds. Even with a bunch of Gunpoint Taxmen coming in and out, I couldn’t spare the tempo to shoot that remaining bird down. I think that if the other one had survived - and especially given all the Sensei’s Advice that you played - I would’ve been in deep trouble.


#53

Yeah, usually I don’t play Safe Attacking, but when I figured I’d be able to keep the Birds in play for a while, it felt worth it. Snapback did good work for me also, but I wasn’t able to make it pay off. Of course, once you went Anarchy, I knew it was a race to avoid Gunship…that card is RIDICULOUS.


#54

Do you feel like practicing some other mono-color match-ups? I’ve seen you’ve got another game still going, so I understand if that’s too much.


#55

Sure, I’m going to the deck that I’ve had the most success with…the Scourge.


#56

Cool, then I’ll see if I can make mono-green work. I guess it’s my turn to go as P1.

Looks like the beginning of a skeleton army, so I’ll grab Tiny Basilisk to walk past them for assassinations and Centaur to kill them en masse.
I could bring in Cala, but then IsotopeX might deteriorate my lone wisp, sac my Cub, and kill my Panda safely with Jave. So I figure I’ll play it safe with Arg and another wisp, and maybe tech a growth spell next, to capitalize on the wisps or on Centaur’s overpower.

Thoughts

I’m keeping the number of skeletons down, which has to be a good thing. The number of units on my side of the board is just begging me to get Galina, and SotP seems like a pretty safe bet too.
My two hurt units are pretty much asking to get deteriorated and/or traded with Pestering Haunt, but I figure they’ve already earned their keep. And I don’t need to worry about Sickness for now either, though IsotopeX might be tempted to get all sorts of Disease stuff after seeing what I’ve put down here.
I might regret keeping Imp alive if he builds a Graveyard next turn and really starts bleeding my cards, but I don’t want to give him the free technician draw. Plus, I like having all these units around! Hmm, maybe I could even get Stampede next cycle…
