Thoughts

This is a potentially stupid alternative to the standard hero+unit opening. I went with this because I’m tired of stw bullshit and I don’t want to risk a blowout by relying on unit for defense. Well he can’t kill grave THIS turn but I’m not sure about his longevity. I also tend to like Setsuki’s spells better so maybe a heroes hall is a thing. I really need to apply early pressure against the crashbarrow extravaganza.

u forgot to write down the PH recruit in t1


#5

Shit, I could have sworn I added that. Can very vividly remember it (writing “(0)” at the end of two consecutive lines). :S
Shax, did you catch me summoning that Haunt in turn 1?


#6

I remember seeing it on the board . I didn’t miss the haunt.


#7

Glad to hear. I’ll edit in the purchase to make the posts either to follow regardless.
Thanks for being observant!

Going for a lot of tempo plays. So far I’ve been able to prevent any useful offense from his side and I should be able to instantly gib 1 of 2 bone collectors next turn thanks to the Boot. I continue to distrust units as defensive options vs black starter.

[details=Turn secrets]* Hand: Thieving Imp, Deteriorate, Bone Collector, Skeletal Archery, Poisonblade Rogue

  • Worker: Poisonblade Rogue
  • Tech: Crashbarrow, Doom Grasp
  • Thoughts: Thought about patrolling with Bone Collector instead, to bait max Grave. But I think that exchange would have been -EV, even if he does what I’d expect. This seems safer. Imp may have not been the best play. My next hand has two cards, that I would like to play, Crash Bomber and Graveyard. But I feel like I want bodies on the board. I can always recover my hand with Garth later…

[details=Turn secrets]* Hand: Graveyard, Crash Bomber, Sacrifice the Weak, Crashbarrow

  • Worker: -
  • Tech: Crashbarrow, War Drums
  • Thoughts: My intuition is ringing all alarms over summoning a skeleton instead of workering. However, cycling earlier is very helpful and more units synergize well with Drakk.
    In hindsight, I probably should not have patrolled with the Skeleton, to protect it from Spark and Shuriken Hail; but I’ve already seen my new hand at this point. shrug

Turn:

  • Start of turn:

  • Tech 2 cards

  • Pestering Haunt and Thieving Imp trade with Troq, Drakk maxbands

  • Last turn’s Skeleton trades with Grave; you get 1 gold

  • Summon Crash Bomber, he gets haste (0)

  • Crash Bomber deals 3 damage to your base

  • End of turn:

  • Discard 3, draw 4, reshuffle, draw 1

Thoughts

Welp, didn’t expect that. My tech II is almost guaranteed dead next turn too. I think I’m getting long term tilted with how I’m going about codex. I keep finding myself in a position where my important stuff just barely dies each turn or the opponent has one too many trash mobs in patrol for me to attack.
