Due to some unusual circumstances, I won’t have time to give this match the attention it deserves until late Sunday night at the absolute earliest, and most likely I’ll be too exhausted until Monday morning. Apologies in advance for the delay.

Thoughts

Necro/Growth/Truth might be the strongest possible build I could go up against here. Necro/Growth is a very strong combo, and Truth synergizes with both and can shut down my core strategy. I’ll probably need the Mind-Parry Monk to guard against strong removal like Doom Grasp, Polymorph: Squirrel, and Mind Control. I’ll probably need Tech II Balance to remove MoLaC if he specs into Growth. I should probably save Nature Reclaims for Blooming Elm, as I expect to have a hard enough time defending without also having to worry about Overpower. Against the threat of armor buffs like Dinosize, I can really only counter with Deathtouch, so I probably should spec into Discipline and Balance regardless of his tech choices. It might be hard to keep up in terms of cards without the Garrisons, though… maybe I could rely on Circle of Life for early Tech II Balance presence, and then switch a Tech Lab from Peace to Balance once the Garrisons have been dropped, but that seems… iffy. For one thing, destroying those Garrisons should be a high priority for him, and for another, if he’s diligent with Free Speech, I might not even get the chance to cast Circle of Life. For right now, though, I just need to force him to slow down his tech progression.

As expected, he has Oni out. I can throw out my own hero and accept the slow down on tech, or let him break my tech 2 again (and have his soldiers go largely unchallenged again). I think I’ll go with extra worker and skeleton, and challenge his possible oni play with garth. I don’t have to worry about losing the tech 2 race because he has no tech 1 yet. Im going to try to overwhelm with ancients and bargains, as something he can’t really break with parry or nature reclaims. I’ll have to lockdown with free speech eventually, maybe i’ll tech an ancient and free speech next turn and the turn after.

No Tech II building yet, that’s interesting. Also, Garth with no Heroes Hall. He might be planning to Doom Grasp me, but merely being able to generate a Skeleton each turn to patrol as Technician is a problem. I’m kind of tempted to Snapback him for Argagarg, but that’s a really bad trade in terms of value since he hasn’t invested any gold in levelling up. It might be better to just let him Doom Grasp. I’ll tech Basilisks to bypass those patrolling Skeletons.

Wow, Lich’s Bargain. It was a mistake to overlook that, as this is probably the ideal situation for it to be played. And, I workered my Snapback, so I have to actually attack Garth to kill him.

Moment’s Peace here would slow me down, but otherwise I think I’ve got this locked in. And even then free speech is likely on its way to hopefully stem the tide.
