No upgrade issues here, so he will need to try to setup a lot of damage to take down my tech 2 before I get Molac on the table. Calamandra seems like a possible candidate to cause trouble. I am probably putting down rook and tech 1 next turn. Behind the ferns seems like something i should watch for. Birds will be good early. He could do a lot of damage with crashbarrows. If he rushes barrows, I might have enough opening to play molac, not sure.

That’s a scary opening by Zhavier, but at least my opening hand gives me some options (not so much for my next turn though).
Any two things I play can be killed, assuming he has one of Madman, Rambaster & Charge in his next hand. So a hero would just be giving away free levels.
I’m probably best off just patrolling Brogre and Bombaster for trades and goodies. If Zhavier trades, we’re even in gold but I’m up a card. There’s a small chance that he’ll Pillage my scav gold, but that’ll just leave me further ahead on cards.
In the long run, I don’t see how I can beat MoLaC, so I think my best bet is a Blood base race, maybe with Bugblatters and frogs. With that in mind I’m almost tempted to play Bloodburn, but it’s just too slow.

So far so good. Charge and dog could kill rook, but that means no tech 1 for him, which would be great for the base race portion, not so great for the bird’s. Acceptable loss.

Rook isn’t a surprise, but he is a problem. Once again, I can’t play a hero safely: Zhavier needs just 1 hasty damage to get through Bombaster in SQL, then midband Rook can walk past a lone patroller and squash a backline hero. That’s bad because it brings him very close to maxband. Enough said.
I could patrol two guys in addition to Bombaster, just to keep contesting the board. I could even play a hero behind them, at the cost of delaying tech 1. But the only spell I’d really like to play off that is Murkwood Allies, which I won’t be able to afford next turn without falling too far behind in tech.
So I’ll keep my options for next turn open, between Cala to threaten stealth (maybe with Heroes’ Hall), midband Drakk for explosive aggression, and a rush to tech 2. I’m teching stuff that could help against a Bird’s Nest, which is likely to hit the board next.

Hmm, the flood was a good idea on his part. It wouldn’t be that great a stretch to lose rook here, but putting dog in front is even worse. I can live with losing rook, I think, as it will cost him the tech race.

I’m definitely killing Rook this turn, the question is how.
Option 1: midband Drakk, Madman and Dog trade with Rook. PROs: my hand size stays up, and maxband Drakk puts a lot of pressure on Zhavier, which might make him delay tech 2. CONs: vulnerable to birds, which can safely kill Drakk in 2 turns (less with Zane shenanigans).

Option 2: Madman+Dog+Bombaster trade with Rook, play and patrol Huntress, midband Drakk. PROs: relatively safe against birds, I can level Drakk to heal him if necessary. CONs: fewer cards, less pressure.

Option 3: Charge Huntress, she hits Rook and survives, trade Dog to finish him. PROs: leaves me with the strongest board overall. CONs: Drakk is least safe.

All in all, I think option 2 is the best-balanced: Drakk poses a threat, and can’t be taken out by something as simple as midband Zane. If he dies, I’ll tech up next turn and go for frogs and Bugblatters as originally planned. If he survives, I might stay at tech 1 for a while to keep the pressure, possibly with a Heroes’ Hall.

Ok, so my tech 2 is kinda in danger, but probably only if he foregoes his tech 2. Surprise attack seems like my best fallback plan, if he does, and has the benefit of helping molac. Skipping tech 2 to kill drakk doesnt seema as good. Wish I could patrol in technician, but thats just makeing it too easy for drakk to kill it.

Growth tech 2, right on schedule… He’s drawing into a pretty fat deck though, so maybe he doesn’t have MoLaC in hand yet?
The real question is, am I willing to take that risk? Probably not.
I’ll have to empty my hand to break his tech 2, but at least I can set up a Heroes’ Hall, and have something else to sink gold into next turn.
I highly doubt I’ll actually get to draw the cards I’m currently teching…
In fact, I’d rather skip a worker to increase my odds of drawing an Argo next turn, and maybe getting to the end of my deck?
…
After the draw: when it rains, it pours… got both Argo’s, which I’m highly unlikely to want to play together. I’ll probably maxband Drakk, play one Argo, and bring in a 2nd hero.

Yea, that was worse than i thought :stuck_out_tongue: and my hand is not great for responding. If I had molac in my next hand… ah well. If I were to leave drakk, I could max Arg and make him work to get through, or just play rook and bird’s, but that makes it a little too easy to break through. If I clear both our boards, his only haste is mad man and rambaster, and an expensive charge. and he only has 3 cards. bah, let’s see how the board clear goes.

If my board survives, I’m guessing I tech up and maxband Geiger next turn. Teched cards would be Bugblatter X2, or maybe Bugblatter plus another copy of R&D. If my board dies, I don’t think it matters what I do.

Worst case, I face a bunch of frogs, or he spends a bunch of cards and stealth kills ancient, but that just results in my doing surprise attack against a pretty empty board. if he kills arg, then I have even better chance of molac draw

Your Drakk plays were making me pretty scared for a bit there. But i actually think you would have been better off going for crashbarrows or behind the ferns to break my stuff.
