I’d usually play Drakk+Dog with this opening hand, but I think I need Cala here to threaten the stealth kill on Vandy. I would’ve liked to patrol Dog in technician to have an extra card to discard, if only it didn’t wreck my cycle… So scav or lookout? I guess I might need the extra gold for Madman, to break through a hero’s SQL armor.
Thinking ahead a little bit, I like Argo’s against Nimble Fencers. Behind the Ferns could be good to threaten Graveyard and backline heroes, assuming that Legion goes for the typical Heroes’ Hall and not tower. As the game progresses, I feel like it might come down to who can out-haste who. So a Heroes’ Hall of my own + Now!/Bloodlust might be in order.

…or maybe I should’ve put Dog in lookout after all. sigh
Looks like Vandy is here to stay, since I won’t delay tech 1 to kill her. So what do I do now to keep pressure on? I definitely want to tech up, and I can play Madman to patrol with, knowing he’s now safe from Deteriorate.
The question is what to do with my last 2 gold: midband Cal, build heroes’ hall, or play another unit. Let’s see. Heroes’ hall won’t do me much good if Cala dies to maxband Vandy next turn. He’ll have to doom my Madman, but he can play a chump blocker to stop my counterattack.
If I play a second unit, he’ll have to work a little harder to block my counterattack. Midband Drakk would let me punch through a weenie blocker, and the doomed whatever could finish hurt Vandy. Which unit, though? Rambaster is vulnerable to Sac the Weak, since it doesn’t get patrol goodies, so I’m actually considering Musketeer.
Midband Cala is also a solid option, I guess, but it feels like giving up tempo, especially with Legion’s cheaper tech 1.

Hand : summon, archery, javelin, haunt,jandra
Tech: DP, nimble
Thoughts : uff, so many bodies. Tower to prevent cala to both invisi and kill vandy. Even a maxcala would survive with just 1, making her hauntable. and he still would have to sac something, like mm making the trade good for me. Sure, he could charge a bro+mm for the kill, but that would mean 5 gold for spell+unit and a total of 3 cards 6 gold for 4 gold of mine. the trade is acceptable. [/details]

Your deck seems to be missing a few cards. As far as I can tell, after the reshuffle you were supposed to draw 4 cards out of 8 after discarding 2 and teching 2, leaving 4 in deck.

Hmm, Legion gave up the traditional PtW heroes’ hall for tower. Behind the Ferns is still on the table, I guess, and no Discord anytime soon means Murkwood Allies also becomes viable. But I still like Ferocity best for dealing with Nimble Fencers.
I’m expecting DP and a Fencer next, but even a doomed Fencer shouldn’t be able to get past my Argo. I think I’m also set up pretty well to deal with Shadow Blade/Sac the Weak/Deteriorate.
One thing I can’t handle ATM is Gargoyle. Not the likeliest tech, but I’ll put a Huntress in the deck just in case.
My upcoming hand is kinda weak, so there’s a good chance I’ll use next turn to cheat in a tiger and build my hand back up to 5. Then tech 2 after that.

Thoughts

Legion just cycled through his entire deck, and ended up playing Summon Skeletons? I have no idea what that means.
But I do feel that I can tech up safely, no Tiger required. In fact, I think I can even keep maxband Cal alive… and if I tech Feral Strike X2, I have >80% of drawing one!
TBH, Legion could go all in with something like a Soulstoned+doomed Fencer to get at Cal, but it would leave him behind on tech, likely with a pretty battered board. I’m willing to take that risk for the potential reward of Hyperion X2, Tricycloid X2, Crashbarrow X2… so many options :heart_eyes:

After the draw: or I can just whiff it entirely :cry:

Arrgh! If I had Feral Strike in hand this turn, this game would be over!
As it is, it’s dangerously close to slipping away from me. If Legion has Maestro + Grounded Guide in hand (or can dig for them), I’m looking down the barrel of up to four 0-cost hasted buffed virtuosos.
I can try to stem the tide with Ferocity. Specifically, a swift-striking tiger should be impassable even for buffed virtuosos (as well as his hurt Vandy). It’ll have to be orange to play around Deteriorate, and I’ll need another unit to protect it from Sac the Weak. With this set-up, I might stay afloat to counterattack with Feral Strike.
By now Doom Grasp is also a possible threat, though I’m not expecting it quite yet. He’s teched 6 cards so far, which I’m guessing are DP, Fencer X2, Starlet, and either GGuide X2 or GGuide and Maestro. And he can’t dig all the way through his deck this time around.
Here’s one way Legion’s next turn could go, assuming he can’t get past my patrol: fetch Meta, play Garth, use his maxband to fetch a freshly-teched GGuide or whatever. With no tower I’ll be in trouble fast, but I might be able to beat him in a base race using big hasted units. Right?
I want to keep my Feral Strike options open, so I’m teching big impact spells instead of units: Kidnapping could work wonders on a GGuide. TD is a bit of a risk, since it’s all but useless if I lose Cal, but by now I’m too committed to the Feral Strike plan.

Sorry for the delay. I don’t see myself sneaking in even 8 damage, so GG.

@Bob199 Legion has it.

This was a frustrating game for me. I whiffed a >80% draw of Feral Strike on T5 which would have won me the game. Then I made that stupid mistake with the tiger: I knew Deteriorate was my Achilles’ heel, I just thought invisibility would take care of it. In hindsight, all I had to do was patrol him in Elite with Huntress in backline, and I probably could’ve survived.

Anyway, very well played by you, biding your time and setting up that virtuoso rush. GL in the rest of the tournament.


#20

@Dreamfire honestly, i thought u had it in the bag and @FrozenStorm can vouch for that. turn after turn u kept the pressure high denying me the possibility to turn tables and forcing me to always pick the worst case scenario play.
At a point i was amazed not seeing hyperions and tricicloids, imho u should have teched them sooner. I was also hella scared of behind the ferns, it would have sealed the deal. i got some wind back only cuz i kept getting both DPs and cuz u had no big fella. A 4/5 hyperion with haste and resist would have been a nightmare for me.
gg and really wp, ur deck is hella strong, and so are u.
