Ugh this looks ugly… No idea what synergy my deck is supposed to have exactly, his looks much better (and from p1 position to boot).

I think I will likely go Past tech 2? Idk I have to be careful of MoLaC…

I think I’m likely going to be playing at tech 1 for a little bit to make sure I keep him off MoLaC, so I’m getting some momentum shift for this next cycle into the deck. Patrolling such that he doesn’t have enough to StW, Midband Drakk and Worker, which means barring a kidnapping, my tech 1 should be safe.

Of course, I whiff both my tech 1 cards (a 20% chance but ugh) so next turn will probably be hero things! …

I guess he forgot how annoyingly good deteriorate is against Mox. If I skipped a worker, I could break his tech 1, but I think that is just too much tempo lost not hitting tech 2 on time. and threatening a maxband drakk seems scary enough for now. If I can develop a decent board next turn, I will probably go Molac, otherwise I might just try to crush him with blood.


#6

I hope I can look forward to pointing to this after the game as a really GREAT example of when to skip a worker.

More likely though, I’ll be pointing to it as an example why skipping workers is a bad idea :wink:

Whelp, this is going to be interesting! If he wants to base race I’ll play that game. I’ll see his midband drakk and raise him a maxband of my own! I don’t want to go all-out on War Drums just yet, but I can catch him with a fat cycle here and hope he was trying to clear the board in order to Tech 2 into MoLaC, highly doubting he went for Doom Grasp, and hope to buy myself a cycle of serious pressure.

With next hand now known, I will likely BC + FArgo + HH + Worker, knowing I’m drawing into War Drums I’ll be able to Garth + Skele + Seer / Stewardess + War Drums turn 5 and REALLY put the screws to him. Without haste for his turn 4, I think I have the upper hand despite skipping the worker.

Okay this is actually going to work out amazingly, I’m going to knock his teeth out next turn and there’s barely anything he can do to stop it. Kidnapping could obviously do some serious damage but I don’t think he can kill Drakk with Garth down, and that means there will be one very big War Drums next turn!

Well, this game is pretty much done, I can knock out a few things with kidnapping, but then I will have almost nothing for blockers. and given his max drakk, he would be foolish not to have gotten at least 1 war drums, so I have lots of broken things to look forward to if he pulls that off.

Glad I was careful about kidnapping :slight_smile:

This should be GG, he’s too far behind on tempo so even Doom Grasp to remove War Drums isn’t going to save the day here (it’s too expensive for him, skipping a worker like he did). I can cheat in another stewardess with Garth and wreck the board anyway, and Prynn can usually find a way to make herself useful :wink:
[/details]


#11

Yea, I am just gonna go with GG! I completely borked that turn with just drakk blocking, I didn’t think you would kill my drakk, which was badly miscalculated.

@EricF


#12

Yeah it was bit overzealous of you :wink: and of course I missed lethal last turn! Drakk Mox and stewardess was exactly 20!

GG WP stewardess is pretty great against that deck
