GLHF! Putting my base at 19, since there’s no reason for you to not attack with the Mad Man here.

P2T1

Starting hand: 5

Tiger Cub
Spore Shambler
Verdant Tree
Rich Earth
Rampant Growth

Thoughts

No Rampant Growth next turn, but against Red I’m not sure it matters. I think Spore Shambler + early Tech I is the best option here: Tiger Cub + Wisp doesn’t do enough retaliation damage for my liking, and Spore Shambler + float is open to early Pillage, still scary even if it’s card-inefficient. Young Treant in hand next turn, maybe I try for a Turn 2 Tech I unit, we’ll see. Workering Rich Earth as usual, far too slow against any Ogre opening.

P2T3

Starting hand: 4

Tiger Cub
Galina Glimmer
Young Treant
Forest’s Favor

Technician draw: 1

Giant Panda

Thoughts

Well, that’s a draw. Going for the Ancient first, then teching the Mantis next turn. Hopefully that’s fast enough, if codexnewb is still going for a base race here.

Do I play Galina and the Panda, or do I take Tech II now, and exhaust the Prospector to play the Panda? The latter’s too dangerous with that Ogre out, I think. What do I spend the 2 extra gold on? Tiger Cub or Young Treant wouldn’t be terrible, or I could exhaust the Prospector to get a Tower down and have that Wisp trade with something. Alternatively, I build a Heroes’ Hall. I’ll go with an extra unit, codexnewb’s going to be on the attack this turn so the Ogre doesn’t bounce. I’ll be on a small hand, but his hand’s even smaller already. Probably going to see Drakk come out here. Maybe a high-level Zane, so I might as well bank on getting more cards or gold.

Patrol: Panda goes in front to die first so he can bring in more Wisps, Wisp goes in Elite so everything does some damage, then Prospector and Tiger Cub go in patroller slots. I can easily still lost Argagarg or Galina, but it should be pretty costly on codexnewb’s board presence.

i am NOT feeling good about this strategy at all.

i immedaitely regret this decision, lol.

Fire or Blood?

woops! fire!!!

P2T4

Starting hand: 3

Verdant Tree
Rampant Growth
Spore Shambler

Technician draw after reshuffle: 1

Tiger Cub

Thoughts

Huh, he only killed the Panda before the reshuffle when he knows I’m spamming Wisps. Facing Fire again, so at least I won’t be facing Bugblatters while spamming.

Couple of ways I can break the Tech II here:

  • Rampant Growth on someone, then I have 3 gold to play a defender.
  • Spore Shambler passes along a rune and blocks, 1 gold left over. I discard 2, so am guaranteed to draw the Ancient.
  • Rampant Growth on someone, then play Verdant Tree instead of a defender. If I’m only killing the Mad Man, the healing isn’t useful, since Argagarg can do it and midband next turn. Plus, I have no defender, so no technician bonus to get back to a 5-card hand, and I’m open to both the Tree and the Tech II getting destroyed.
  • Don’t build Tech II, play Rampant Growth and Verdant Tree as above, Spore Shambler passes a rune so Giant Panda can block too. Expensive on cards, but much better for defence, and codexnewb still has to worry about Galina too.
  • Don’t build Tech II, Spore Shambler passes a rune, play Verdant Tree, Tiger Cub and Shambler block. Less healthy blockers, but I have more units on the board, so Galina is more of a threat.

Verdant Tree would be nice to heal up, but I’d have no patrol so the Rambaster can take it out. A patroller would be better for stopping my own Tech II getting broken, and can get me a technician bonus.

Blooming Ancient

Thoughts

Fire again? And he’s obviously worried about Balance if he’s getting rid of all his haste. Do I play the Ancient now, or wait? If I do, I have to choose between an extra unit, a hero, or a worker. If I don’t, then I can’t do anything apart from playing Midori for Moment’s Peace. I think I’d rather get the Ancient out, while codexnewb still has a small hand size.

Technician draw: 1

Giant Panda

Thoughts

Pretty happy to draw a Panda here. I could also play the Young Treant, but maybe I want to play Rampant Growth instead? Ideally I want Galina to hit Tech II, Playful Panda can take down Jaina with one rune and Argagarg’s buff, or with both runes and Argagarg then Rampant Growths into Zane. I like the latter: the Elemental gets me an extra rune, and I can put it in Squad Leader since it’s a Blue token and doesn’t matter for Galina’s ability. Do I skip a worker to play a second hero and take the levels from killing Zane? Being able to cheaply midband Midori next turn would be pretty nice, but I think I’ve put off the final worker enough.

What to tech? I guess I want Tech III, since those are immune to Kidnapping. But I’d rather put in Stampede / Might of Leaf and Claw to speed things up a bit. I’ll take one of each.

ill have to GG it right there. can’t stop your momentum. well played!!

Well played!

Oh wow, double early Desperation tech. Guess I picked the right game to go for Galina + Wisp spam.

yeah, that was a big mistake. i had nothing to fall back on with the draws i got. learned my lesson…

Yeah, at least get some Lobbers or something in the deck first? I don’t know.
