Rather face Rich Earth open than Calamandra, especially as I have upgrade destruction in Potent Basilisk and Nature Reclaims. Could work out well for me if I can build Tech2 on T3, then summon the Basilisk from Garth’s max T4. Can also absorb the Crashbarrow likely coming my way T5.

Worth delaying Tech1 a turn as I get great value from from the hero kill. Max Garth gets me Imp from discard, not a bad unit to play at this point, reduces the odds he draws T5 double Crashbarrow or Truth Tech2.

Aggressive tech here would be Lich’s Bargain, try to push home the advantage quickly and can play next turn if drawn. But with Rich Earth in play, don’t want to fall behind on worker econ, and would like to keep Tech3 rush timing possible, so teching Bone Collector and Tiny Basilisk instead.

@rathyAro @petE @bob199 heads up here; p2t2 Garth fetched Imp from discard, but that is not a legal move. It is tech 1&2 units only, not tech 0, that qualify for Garth maxband

4 Likes

Oops – thanks for spotting, hadn’t read the card properly. Should I go back and redo my T2? And if so, should @rathyAro have the option to redo his T2 reshuffle so I don’t have knowledge of his T3 hand?

I think we should both redo from that point. Do we need @Bob199 to ok it?

Reset gamestate from @petE T2, play on from there

OK, back to rule-reality, my P2T2 to follow your original P1T2 turn/reshuffle.

Doesn’t look good to delay Tech1 build for hero kill with no ability to summon from Garth’s max until T4.

So I’m left building a Tower to stop Cal discard-stealth killing Garth, and giving him a scav bonus to stop his Panda/Wisp clearing my patrol with a green starter buff for the hero kill. Don’t like the economy this is giving him on top of Rich Earth.

Still like the idea of Balance for Potent Basilisk destroying Rich Earth, but starting to get a good Skelly gang so Necro could work out better, let’s see. On top of usual Skelly buffs (Archery, Skeletal Lord) I can use Midori’s mid to stack on an additional +1/1.

For now teching a Bone Collector and Nether Drain (for value, since he’ll likely level Cal this turn).

I reshuffled, what you said made sense.

His Tower puts paid to my Skelly ambitions, but slows him down enough for me to get in an early Tech2 build. Next turn should be able to max Garth for a Potent Basilisk (destroy Rich Earth) or Mimic (hasty damage with Zane). Teching both these units, they’ll be in discard for Garth unless he cycles me with a tech bonus. Mimic also useful in the build to block Spectral Roc if he goes Truth.

I get Garth max into Basilisk to discard his Rich Earth. But looks a difficult matchup for me from here on. Towers on both sides make it expensive to attack, but that’s not a problem for his cheap ephemeral Blood units and their Mirrors.

Teching 2xMoment’s Peace, looks like my best weapon here. Makes his ephemeral units unplayable for a turn, gives me cover to try to get something going with Midori max and a flying Mimic, or try for Tech3. Free Speech would prevent me playing them, and could be in his build by now.

Drew the Moment’s Peaces in different hands, good for the lockdown, but missed on the T5 Mimic (T6 flying partner) or Haunt (break Tech2 with flying Midori).

GG, well played!
@Bob199

That was brutal – T5 clearing a full patrol with attack left over for 2 tech buildings! Was expecting the big Mirror-Barrowfest next turn rather than this, with Moment’s Peace as my way to avoid it.

Felt I was getting into trouble once I built the Tower to protect Garth from possible stealth-discard kill from Cal, as the $3 spend stopped me really pressurizing the Rich Earth open. Maybe I needed a unit-only open, or to leave Garth open to the stealth kill, as discards aren’t great for a Blood plan and I could go after leveled-up Cal with Tiny Basilisks.

Good luck with the rest of your games.

I got the barrows online a little faster because I teched them a turn early. Still not sure if that was overly greedy, but it seemed to work out. And yeah, I think pressuring with creatures early would have been the way to go. Maybe Jandra if you had it turn 1. Once you had Garth out I think tower was the right play, I was 100% going to make the 2 cards trade for garth because you didn’t have anything else going on at the time.

Good game dude.
