[details=Thoughts]No upgrade removal means MoLaC is definitely an option, but between Skeletal Archery and Sentry he’s almost certain to be able to deal with Bird’s Nest. Starting with Ogre & Dog for now, with patrol set up to make clearing them with Deteriorate and/or Sac the Weak as undesirable as possible. I’ll think more about long-term plans next turn.

Very aggressive start. I can’t really keep Garth if I play him to deteriorate someone, so I’ll go for cards instead - he already went down to play two units and so he’ll be much more hungry for cards going forward. I’m expecting Zane to come out to keep the pressure. I can take some base damage for now, and if he keeps up I might go for Lich’s Bargain (unless my base will be in really bad shape)

Right, that too! :smile:

I just don’t like doing acronyms, and the whole phrase looks weird written out… But yes, I’m hopeful we can have a fun game.

[details=Thoughts]The discard didn’t really affect me beyond keeping me at -1 hand size where I would have returned to full otherwise. I think I’m more worried about Lobbers than much else he could tech, and between that and the myriad ways the black starter has to kill units, Rook seems like the best hero to get here. Despite what I said last turn, I’m still grabbing a copy of Bird’s Nest for a couple reasons. First, he might not get any anti-air set up right away, in which case I can probably get some mileage out of it. Second, it makes Sac the Weak and Hooded Executioner much more difficult to use. Finally, once I get MoLaC active they’ll be very efficient to play even with anti-air. I’m quite likely to play something else, but this seems like the best time to tech it.

[details=Thoughts]No Tech I and a horde of Skeletons? Smells like a Lich’s Bargain is incoming. Let’s stop that for a turn or two, shall we? I chose to give him a card instead of a gold to make his cycling more awkward and because I didn’t want to essentially remove the multicolor penalty for his first building.

Alright, a pair of Skeletons isn’t too threatening. The worst that could happen is something like Nether Drain into either Double Lobber or Doom Grasp, but even then he can’t do much beyond kill Rook (like 1 damage to Tech II or something). So while I could grab Taxman here, I’d rather get the extra card draw to make sure I can get MoLaC dropped next turn. Teching a second copy of it and Surprise Attack so that I can be fairly confident about getting each of them on the turn(s) they’re needed. Rook goes in Lookout so that Nether Drain > Doom Grasp specifically is less appealing (Double Lobber costs a lot of cards, so that’s punishing enough on its own).

[details=Thoughts]The pressure’s mounting, but now that I’ve dropped MoLaC on the board I don’t really need my Tech II for anything but the increased hero limit. I calculated that the odds of getting at least one copy of Surprise Attack in my next hand are >70% and getting something with haste is >90% even going down to a 3-card hand, so I’m putting out one more blocker that can potentially attack if it survives. I want to summon Arg as well, but then I’d have trouble getting Zane into play… So I’ll just have to hope this holds well enough for now.

Thoughts

MoLaC is scary but either he whiffed on any units with it, or my discard worked well - he’s got not much on the board. I thought I was in a terrible spot earlier but Nether drain really helped clear Rook and build Garth. I can use Garth’s max next turn to the ultimate tech 2 effect and I only bargained after building tech 2. I was originally thinking he’ll go for doubling barbarian + growth spells but now I don’t really know what to expect. DeGrey would be really good for him, and he might have teched it in anticipation of skeletons/Bargains. He’ll probably also play Arg to max. I can move away from Tokens if deGrey arrives - and I have never seen him arriving.

[details=Thoughts]Present Tech II makes sense, and he’ll probably do a number on me on his turn… But I doubt he can stop me from activating MoLaC, and at that point even Hyperion and Tricycloid will have a hard time doing much. I’m certain to be able to get at least one more rune next turn, and if either Zane survives or I get a unit in hand that I can cast Charge on, I’ll be set. Blooming Elm is getting teched to give overpower to all the units that’ll be getting buffed soon, which’ll make the stat increase even more effective.

[details=Thoughts]As suspected, he was able to do typical Present shenanigans to not only wipe my board but break one of my tech buildings and nearly break the other. Fortunately, I didn’t need either one to get MoLaC active this turn. It’s a bit disappointing that my Tech I could be sniped any turn since most of my units are Tech I at this point, but even my Tech 0 units are about on par with his Tech II units now… As long as he can’t destroy my Base in the next turn or two, this should be in the bag.

[details=Thoughts]Flood the board! FLOOD IT! It’s a good thing he didn’t hit my Tech I this turn, and now if he (somehow) breaks it, I’ve already played all the Tech I units I have except Taxman. Next turn will depend on what I draw, assuming he doesn’t surrender here, but if I can afford it I’ll want a Surplus (nealy got it this turn, but decided to get the Elemental out instead).
[/details]

Edit: Removed unpurchased Surplus.


When the [Codex] hits just right

A response could have been - you should have broken my tech 1 ;)…


#20

GG. That’s game @Bob199

I think that if I broke Tech 1 instead of 2, I could have continued but I made some pretty terrible errors early on I’m quite happy I was able to get back into it.


#21

Thinking back on it, I should have known you’re mostly into tech 1 units and not tech 2. I should have broken tech 1 over 2 both times.
