Ironbark Treant
Rich Earth

Thoughts

Not a good hand for playing Rich Earth — I’d want Tiger Cub patrolling in SQL against that board — so into workers it goes. I think Ironbark Treant in Elite is best here: the other options don’t force a two-card trade. I can then play the Prospector to backline, so if codexnewb wants to stop the extra income he has to make that trade.

Thoughts

Playing a Rambaster means codexnewb expects to hit my buildings this turn, how many ways can he do that?

  1. Skip worker, Surprise Attack.
  2. Maxband Zane to shove, hope to steal gold for a worker.
  3. Lobbers?
  4. Fire spells.
  5. Early Kidnapping.

Resist helps by making three of those more expensive, so a midband Calamandra could be nice here. It stops the Zane shove and early Kidnapping entirely. Zane can get a guaranteed Calamanda kill, but at the expense of codexnewb’s entire board, and it leaves Zane heavily wounded. Ferocity helps with the other options, but I can’t access that until next turn. Alternatively, I could build Heroes’ Hall instead of Tech I, and maxband Calamandra, but I don’t think other heroes’ spells help with that situation. I’ll tech a Ferocity and Centaur: former to deal with later attacks, Centaur if the Zane case happens, since it can survive a Zane suicide afterwards, or overpower later to reach him.

Tiger Cub

Thoughts

Oops. Going for the Zane kill while I’m up a card, ferocious Tiger Cub in Squad Leader can’t be killed by Bombaster’s ability, so codexnewb needs a hasted 3 HP unit or Scorch/Fire spells to kill it. I’m in trouble if it doesn’t. 2 leftover, so I could build a Heroes’ Hall, or I could lead with a Young Treant and see if I draw into a better plan. I like that idea. Teching in Feral Strike, the boosted version isn’t great pre-Tech II, but if I draw it next turn and don’t have better options I could effectively draw cards with it. Also teching in a Barkcoat Bear: Feral Strike is really good with Feral II’s expensive unit options, so I’ll plan to go that route. Overpower unit first, since I need to clear out all those low-HP units eventually, and the Tigers can be summoned by Calamandra instead.

Thoughts

I’m guessing codexnewb isn’t going for Bamstomper Lizzo or Firehouse with Calamandra’s resist aura up, so I’m looking at Molting Firebirds, possibly Doubleshot Archers. The latter are probably more of a pain, but the former stops me blocking with Murkwood Allies reliably, at least if using it for Frogs. Moment’s Peace slows both down, but I’d rather have a way to deal with the air units. Huntress or Polymorph: Squirrel, basically, and I think the latter is more useful. Just put a Tower up, and it should be good to deal with the Archers too, plus Argagarg’s Elemental can help with the Firebirds too. I’ll take the other Bear too, with Fire’s high attack-to-health ratio they’ll be more useful than Elephants on the attack.

Do I build Tech II now, or a Tiger? Either way, probably need a Tower to damage any Fire II attackers and try to force current board to die on attack. With half the deck in hand, codexnewb probably has a Fire unit ready to go, but if I don’t tech up now then I’ll fall behind on board quickly. I think I have to risk going for Tech II now: if I don’t, then even if Calamandra survives my best plays next turn are Feral Strike for Tech I units, or Ferocity when codexnewb is likely to have long range or air attackers.

okay, so this turn si easy. i was expecting some more aggression there with a tech 2 delay, but i guess this makes sense too.

the draws just lined up for me well this turn. the tech 2 break was probably th ekey here.

lesson learned, fire is a tech route that trades a lot of heavy units, so need to try AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE to presever my untis on the board.

Losing my Tech II isn’t ideal, but at least I got codexnewb to trade away most of his board, and heavily damage the remaining units. I just block up and hope for a good next turn, I think. I could block with Argagarg and pets instead, but I want to keep him in reserve, until he can Polymorph when he arrives.

well, that will do it then. honestly, draws lined up REALY well for me this game. i dont expect a repeat here.

nice to know that i can pivot after losing as P1 last time.

Good grief! Looks good to me, well played. Not sure what I’d have done differently.

i would say im most afraid of gold efficiency from P2 green. huntress’ seem terrifying since they force 2 for 1 card trades most of the time for me.

i also was surprised to see tech 2 feral. the units are so expensive, and suspect to kidnapping?

also, good Lord my draws lined up that time. so i doubt i can replicate this.

I reckoned that Calamandra’s aura would dissuade you from Kidnapping, especially on Bears, and I’d already gone for the aura in reaction to the large float. After the Fire reveal, I reckoned Feral’s big units would still be good to survive against the likes of Doubleshot Archer and Firebird, then I could pick them off with Polymorph. Huntress would have been a good call, though, I shouldn’t have worried so much about having Centaur for overpower when I was going to be defending so much.

ahh, that makes a lot of sense. i always forget about PMS.

ill setup the next one in a bit. no rush.
