Now that I’ve done my math properly, that Onimaru can’t be allowed to live. Waaaay too dangerous. I’ll take the Garrison, I should be able to deal with it okay.

alrighty, lets see how this goes.

You marked gargoyle indestructible, but it doesn’t regain that trait until your upkeep. It is currently flying.

Nothing to arrest, sad face, i was starting a trend. I can manufacture a gargoyle, kill his gargoyle with jandra trigger, still facing Vandy and Imp with all my stuff. I am mildly concerned he might choose to grab Metamorph, but I am pretty confident I could punish that, and he has neither tech 2 nor heroes hall so it isn’t nearly as scary as it could be… Question is, do I skip worker or not. building inspector would be a good idea here to force the issue. Shadowblade is still kinda scary with how few cards I have, and with dark pact he could go dig for a variety of things.


#247

Gargoyle isn’t a demon!!! Fuuuuuuhhk I really need to pay better attention… I’m inclined to forfeit once again lol, I’ll think on it

Really bad position for me, didn’t think he’d have Manufactured Truth still left. Didn’t get to my soul stones in time it seems, bummer. Hopefully he workered arrest at least… Grabbing Abom for next cycle on the decent chance he can get to a Free Speech now.

Well, knowing his hand, I’ve got a good shot at locking him down next turn. Chances are he will throw up poisonblade and maybe a hero for blocking.

Of course, if I don’t draw any dudes, that makes things a bit harder. But at least I have free speech.

So, play all the dudes and see how it goes.

He doesnt have enough gold to play 2 abominations, and he cant cast spells, so I am pretty safe putting out this sort of patrol.


#253

I’ll quit it there, GG WP! Abom isn’t going to be able to stave you off if I can’t put a soul stone on him.

I needed to cast Soul Stone as soon as I got it on turn 3, and not tech Twilight Baron (or skip Gargoyle and use Baron), but just generally threat of Oni is too scary when he can either arrest + come hard OR just sit there and gather runes. I expect Vandy is going to feel the same way when I take a go at turn 1 here later


#254

Agreed, this feels like a player 1 map.

bah, the Omega opening. he levels Vandy, deteriorates, kills, max Vandy, kill Oni with skellies and hits base for 1. that’s the most likely outcome imo.
