[details=Turn secrets]* Hand: Deteriorate, Graveyard, Skeletal Archery, Sacrifice the Weak, Skeleton Javelineer

  • Worker: Sacrifice the Weak (lol)
  • Tech: -
  • Thoughts: Working StW seems insane and I am far from confident that is was the correct move. However, the other options were Graveyard and Skeletal Archery. SA seems like the natural worker choice until you realize that I have no other anti bird stuff among my t1 options.Deteriorate would be the only tool at my disposal… Further, EricF has no big targets for StW until tech 2, and even then he might go Blood and I can tech in necro and fire spells at that point. Graveyard is essential if I want to go for the Crashburrow combo.
    Burning cards to protect my hero from Rook midband shenanigans. May also be very wrong but I feel like this game might end in a base race and I don’t want to give him a head-start.

Did you pay $3 instead of $2 for Heroes Hall?

  • Worker: -
  • Tech: Lobber, Crashbarrow
  • Thoughts: Thieving Imp, Bone Collector, Skeleton, Deteriorate->Oger would have been a nice defensive line but would have lost immensely against Kidnapping. The chance that he has it is moderately high so i’m trying to take the initiative instead; at the cost of a worker.

Had Garth at 1 to little HP in my board state. Edited in a fix.

You were right the first time. Drakk was in Elite, so 2 atk.

Still working on deciding what to tech/worker to go along with my turn of:

Oh! Yeah I must have forgotten that he has only 4 hp when I “corrected” it. Sorry!

[details=Turn secrets]* Hand: Crash Bomber, Skeletal Archery, Summon Skeletons, Thieving Imp, Graveyard

  • Worker: Summon Skeletons
  • Tech: Crashbarrow, Nether Drain
  • Thoughts: Nether Drain is for countering Max-band Rook. I’ve been trying to think of worst-case scenarios of consequences for using Lobber’s ability instead of patrolling. Everything I could think off came a bit short of destroying my Tech II Building but I’m not sure if I want to risk being wrong for 2 damage to a Heroes’ Hall… Now that I am writing this, I realize that I had not considered Bloodlust, which may become problematic depending on Eric’s hand. I’ll play it safe and turtle.
    Btw.: I did not build a Graveyard for similiar reasons. Need patrollers, yo!

[details=P1, Turn 5]Rambaste + Stampede leads to clearing his board and dealing 9-5 = 4 base damage. Doesn’t seem worth it.
Max Drakk + Bombaste (gains Haste) lets me kill 2 things and kinda-sorta patrol defenders
Or I just go with Rook, Birds, and see what comes down on his side

[details=Turn secrets]* Hand: Deteriorate, Skeleton Javelineer, Poisonblade Rogue, Crashbarrow, Bone Collector

  • Worker: Poisonblade Rogue
  • Tech: Hooded Executioner, Ogre Recruiter
  • Thoughts: This line trades almost everything I have to clear his board for stalling purposes. Drakk will likely die, considering he has the money to summon Drakk and play a bunch of stuff. However, my Tech Building is pretty safe. This guarantees I can max-garth my Barrow next turn if nothing else.
    The alternative line would have had me kill Arg and the Bombaster and then patrol with Crashbomber, Bone Collector and the Skeleton. However, that move gives the initiative to Eric and lets him kill a lot of things for free. If he has Bloodlust or Kidnapping, he will also be able to destroy my Tech Building. It would have left my deck a lot thinner though…

@EricF I was checking your profile to see if you have been posting over the last few days (no offense intended. I don’t mind) and i think I caught a glimpse of your last turn’s spoiler before realizing what it was.

The only sentence I saw referred to using Stampede to clear “his” board not being worth it. Since I am strongly assuming this refers to me, I probably know a card in your deck now.
Please suggest a way to give you a similar advantage.


#17

Meh, It’s probably irrelevant given the current board state. I haven’t had a chance to calculate my tech draw, but one likely follow-up is a concession.

[details=Turn secrets]* Hand: Crash Bomber, Skeletal Archery, Pestering Haunt, Skeleton Javelineer

  • Worker: -
  • Tech: 2x Cinderblast Dragon
  • Thoughts: Meh turn. Could have built a board instead but would have gone low on cards in exchange. Considering my deck has a couple decent things in it, I think the best thing I can do on a bad turn is trading 1:1 to stall. Base rush might have also been okay but I still don’t want a Kidnapping situation.
    It’s likely that wel will see a max-band Rook next turn, or a Dinosized bird, or both (?). Guess we’ll see.
