LLL 2: Kaelii ([Past]/Peace/Anarchy) vs. FrozenStorm ([Discipline]/Blood/Truth)


#1

@FrozenStorm Good Luck, and have fun!

[details=Thoughts]White starter has solidly mid tier units. I don’t think I want to open Nullcraft vs him
Not starting with Mox/Fading Argo is a little sad.

I have four distinct routes to open here:
1: Nullcraft – not terribly aggressive but reasonably likely to stick around a little bit and only really Primus/Tower remove it barring maximum silliness such as sparkshotting it.
2: Neoplexus – Fairly bread and butter opening. Not quite Fading Argo in terms of aggressive options. Likely just patrolling it as we move along. Maybe we do something inzane – unlikely with no nullcraft next turn however.
3: Plasmodium – This is a definite curveball route - I’d probably rely on hitting a seer or time spiral T3 for this to do anything but give up tempo. Plus I don’t like offering quince mirrors of a 4/4 haste terribly much after I give up the tempo of P1.
4: Hero. Oni is the obvious choice as a 3/3 attacker. Zane hitting base for 2, and probably something stupid like aiming for T3 Detonate is the inzane choice.

After much deliberation we’re going for a likely stupid plan where we open with Zane and deal 2 to his base.
I don’t think I’m going peace engine this game, instead we will probably aim for a past // past engine with anarchy support or simply go straight into anarchy with nullcraft+chaos mirrors or something. Plasmodium is getting the worker stick as we might be going past so time spiral could be great.

I guess this is just the Grave + Snapback flavor of Mirror Barrows? Grave’s solid, don’t get me wrong, but I think I’d rather have Garth and Black starter any day. Still, I am partial to Grave / white starter, and he must have whiffed Fargo, Plexus, Mox, and Suits? Even Nullcraft I think is a better start than Zane getting 2 base damage. It’s not like he’s in great position to base race with me with Purple starter :confused: I would think Oni or even Prynn would be a better choice than Zane, though I suppose we’ll see what he’s up to. Drawing into Hook and Safe Attacking, which may prove great for getting a Zane kill!

[details=My Thoughts][spoiler]
Still not sure what his play here is… Sharks? Max out Zane and clear? Suicide Zane and try to level Oni/Prynn? Chaos mirror tinkerer? No matter what, I don’t love his options…

Couple different lines I can go:
Hook Fargo to elite, grave kills tinker and sparks, monk trades Fargo (optional midgrave first to leave SQL, ensures tech1 stays up through sharks)
Hook Fargo to Looky, midgrave kills fargo, monk kills tinkerer, Sensei in front / Safe Attacking
Safe Attacking, grave and monk kill fargo, sensei in front (or midgrave first and patrol him)

Sharks get Grave or tech 1, his choice, in most scenarios. If I patrol grave + sensei, maxzane gets a nice double up.

Seeing as he is short gold to sharks + tech 1 unless I kill tinkerer or he gets a Zane shove off, I’m just going to bet that he didn’t tech Sharks and take the free kill on both dudes by laying safe attacking. That seems most likely to pay off.

I’ll tech in a Hound and Free Speech, just to have Free Speech in the deck. If I don’t hit the hound or he kills tech 1 nbd, investing in Quince or Drakk next turn should work out fine.

I’ll make up the card by patrolling Grave in Techn, since there’s no safer spot against anything he has aside from Nullcraft + max zane to shove + worker. Come at me Zane + sharks…
[/spoiler][/details]

Welp

[details=Thoughts]5/84/73/6*2/5 chance to miss the three cards that would work in this situation when I was redrawing.
Sharks
Nullcraft
Or even Chaos Mirror.

Sharks + Worker + Tech 1 would clear board with a level 3 2/1 zane that he can’t kill off so either dumping 4 on expensive snapback or simply going for his tech 2 I suppose.

Nullcraft + Maxband Zane would be 7 leaving a gold for worker, and either killing a dude with Zane or 4 to base (probably 4 to base). Grab Hammer and Brave Knight maybe?

Chaos Mirror the 1 attack onto grave for 2, kill grave, midband zane for 1 more, worker is 4, tech 1 and hero’s hall or 2 drop.

As it stands I’ve probably lost as this hand and my next are pretty garbage, and he can pretty freely run out tech 2 next turn. At least I didn’t draw battle suits THIS turn as well as my three starter spells.
White has lots of things which make me sad now that I’ve given up the advantage – safe attacking and sensei’s advice are both great now as I can’t kill off more stuff.[/details]

Well that technician draw changes the plan from Tech 2 rush to cheap Oni kill I think! If I skipped worker I could mirror my hound permanently, but I’m not confident that’d be worth it. Better to worker + float 1 and grab my tech 2 next turn I think. Going to get the deck ready with hasty things though.

And of COURSE that bites me a bit, draw the barrow right away… :frowning: Oh well, guess we might be spending a little more on Quince or Drakk. Probably next tech will be Bugblatter + Barrow/Kidnapping

Bad draw aside, I think I’m still in pretty great position. Laying 4 attackers and 6 immediate damage against an empty board on P2T3 with no econ disadvantage is pretty excellent. He wouldn’t dare tech 2 next turn anyway!

Wow, he went for it? Glad the Free Speech will keep him down. Lose the mirror to break his tech 2 but it’s a small price to pay for the safety. I think I’m in pretty good position to take this win. Could even rush tech 3 next turn for Gryphons!

Sure would have been nice to have a Barrow here! :_( Might have sealed the deal, breaking tech 2 AGAIN.

Bringing in Grave just to keep Zane out. Kidnapping will be my BK remover. Hoping he isn’t going for tech 3, but if he is I want to keep Sensei’s Advice in the deck for Gliders. Might get Surplus next turn, but more likely Drakk max and more mirror glider

Keeping his offensive power at a minimum. Depending on what he drew, 4 and 5 health might be wipe-able by 2x Marauder, so putting Quince in front. Along with the tower, I keep my tech 2 no matter what, and that’s the only thing I definitely cannot lose. Quince dying would suck but Drakk living to haste a Bugblatter or Kidnapping draw on the table I think keeping Drakk + Tech 2 should be more than enough to close the game.

Welp, I guess that is about what was EVENTUALLY expected to occur after I opened with a non-standard PPA play.
That, and missing all three of my ‘reasonable’ options on T3 (Null, sharks, chaos mirror – preference being sharks) hurt.


#16

Those all would have been better, yea. Turn 3 draws man…


#17

It was pretty rough.
I realized too late on my T6 that Prynn in squad leader with tinkerer in scavenger/tech was probably better patrol (SPECIFICALLY because you could glider snipe Prynn).
Not sure if it would’ve made a difference.

Otherwise I think if I had redrawn SA on T6, rather than it being bottom 4 was the other point where it might have made a difference? Zane+SA = 7 of 11, Shark+tinkerer > Grave, shark+zane > quince, zane hits midband? That or just break your tech 2. Worker and Prynn for last bit of gold probably.


#18

I would have had to kill Zane first, and skip tower to midband Drakk (or use Quince for that last damage). Would have been riskier, for sure.

You had a rough draw turn 1 as well, though I must say I think Nullcraft, Plexus or Oni would have been better choices. 2 base damage just isn’t very impactful, and you are pretty unlikely to win a base race against Blood :wink:


#19

Plexus -> Fargo, Mox, or Battle Suits + tech 1 is the most ‘standard’ T1 route for PPA with this sort of split, and probably what I should’ve done. PPA’s opener feels so… written basically? Play plexus/mox/fargo/null, next turn play another / battle suits / zane smash their turn if they messed up. Almost always grab from OE / Boot / Stewardess -> Drop Peace with 1x DS, 1x Garrison, OE x2 (or boot+OE and bring in another OE+Garrison next).

Nullcraft is slightly less common I think, but reasonable as well if they don’t have a good anti-air answer.

Oni is the typical hero opener, BUT it gives up any zane play threats which tends to encourage a wide unit response from your opponent I think?

If I’d gotten a T3 answer I would’ve gone for the more dedicated base race and might have gotten away with it too.
Unfortunately it is hard to justify T2 shark tech UNLESS you have zane out on T2 and surviving into T3 – or you have to hope that it shows up T4 I think.


#20

I tend to keep Zane in reserve for when he can make a sudden impact on the board.

Even if you have Oni in play early, it’s usually easy to suicide him into an opposing Tech 1 unit on turn 3 or 4 and then use Zane to clean up the opposing patrol zone.
