Well I’d like to try something a little different this game. Thinking Dino-sized Centaurs might keep things spicy. Really want Cal’s midband soonish though, so I might end up going for a Heroes’ Hall if Arg survives the next few turns.

I originally did this turn where I just played Playful Panda and built an HH. But it seemed like I was lining myself up for painful Stewardess of the Undone action that way, and I was a bit concerned that a tech break, or a hero kill would be possible. So I’m going aggressive here to try to fight for the board.

So maxxing Arg here is super tempting. He’d be a great defender and the threat of Stampede is certianly worrying. But chances are really high that I’m looking at another Stewardess of the Undone and well it feels real wasteful to let the Water Elemental burn like that.

The possibility of hasted units this turn also looms… gotta play it a bit consiervative here I think.

For some reason I blanked on Young Treant being a viable target for the Stewardess to bounce. And now my cycle’s kinda screwed up… and I’d estimate the chances of another Stewardess coming out next turn at 100%. But still, I really want to beef up my board this turn so I have Tech II up and can play all the cards next turn!

Yeah, I dunno what I was thinking with that patrol… Look at all that floating cash over there… world of pain coming at me!

I think I need TB to be able to survive at least stewardess… So the problem with putting all my eggs into one (tiny) basket is that a max prynn can trash at will… That’s $8 to get her out… which is a lot to spend…

And if not Prynn then so many possibilities that could come out here. (Tricycloid + Now!) + SOTU into an egged up TB and it’s toast. Codexnewb would still have 2 cards and $8. Can’t pay sparkshot off again. So Geiger can only deal with one of the T0 units. The other could be handled by a a Hyperion, for example, and then TD another Hyperion to come kill the Blooming Ancient.

I’ll hedge my bets and put enough runes on TB that SOTU can’t kill outright, and leave enough on the BA that a Hyperion can’t kill it.

Eh, a couple of pretty dopey turns here have just given away too many favourable trades.

Well it’s business time here. If I play the other Blooming Ancients, play unboosted Murkwood Allies and grab Arg, I can be looking at generating eleven +1/+1 runes this turn.

But I don’t have enough bodies to get through his patrol. If I can knock out SQL, Elite and Technician, then Tiny Basilisk can sneak on past. But I don’t have lethal… I could maybe kill Geiger though… which might actually be critical.

Next turn a boosted Void Star can deal 9 damage ($7 left). Then Temporal Distorion + Now! means $4 left, which is enough to boost a second Voidstar and that’d be lethal. So I think Geiger’s gotta go to prevent (maybe?) lethal next turn.

I think I’ll put Stampedes in here. If I survive next turn, there’s a good chance Arg will be around and Stampede could win the game.

@codexnewb’s turn!

annnnnd i think ill gg it there. not much to do.

so that puts green at 4 wins and purple at 1 (for Green P2). i wonder how much better i can do with some extra gold. i hope so…

I thought things were going pear shaped when you broke my tech building - suspect things might have worked out differently had your hands lined up a bit better.

I’ve created the next game thread.
