LLL 2: Mooseknuckles ([Balance]/Peace/Law) vs. EricF ([Necro]/Blood/Fire)


#1

glhf @EricF ! This is a pretty interesting matchup I think

P1T1:

Thoughts

Pretty straightforward opening. Rich Earth is too slow against his deck. I like my deck more if I get to tech 2, since blood is his only good T2 spec, but it’s impaired pretty heavily by moment’s peace.

P1T2:

[details=“Thoughts”] I was thinking of teching nature reclaims before he plays GY, since it’s such a dangerous card with his deck - looks like a pretty clear choice now. I thought about playing the prospector, but it lines up so poorly against the pestering haunt that he’ll get back from GY. I don’t have a great way to draw cards, so I’m hesitant to drop down to 4.

Pretty lucky end of turn draw for me. I’ll be able to deal with his GY and I’ll have the cadet on turn 4 (when I actually have a T1 building). [/details]
