Rough shake so far, my 1-drops would have been much nicer to counter with. As it stands, Newsie + Oni seems the best counter-pressure

I don’t want to give Frozen a chance to level up Oni, so I’ll trade a couple of guys into him. The low-cost kill on Newsman and the free lvls for Zane make it worth it, I think.
Teching 2-cost units to ideally play one while maxbanding Zane next turn, and the other while teching up on T4. And I’ll make one of them a Firebat to potentially pair with Hotter Fire further down the road.
Workering Brogre because I always seem to lose him to Arrest.

Whiffed my teched cards, so I’ill probably go with Bombaster alongside maxband Zane.

My Thoughts

Well, knew that could happen, still kinda sucks that it did though. Lobbers are his usual choice, but I just need to patrol to minimize the damage Zane brings. TD in SQL does a pretty good job of that. What to tech is interesting though… I want to be able to hit back hard, so I want Hound or BK I feel like, and I also want to stay ahead on cards, which Scribe is always good at. Feels bad to even try illusions.

I’m gonna go Scribe + Tax Collector, as those still are reasonably serviceable for my likely end-game Peace engine deck. That lets me pair Scribe + Tax Collector + Tower if he floats (and I draw both), which with the Inspector out, I feel like he likely will float

Hmm, looks like a pretty solid next hand

I’ll take that free kill on the Inspector, thank you very much!
Leaving the TD alive risks an MTruth play, but if I put down Bloodburn first, that makes Aven not really worth it for him. And copying anything else to trade into Zane would be pretty fair.
That just leaves me worried about Injunction wrecking all my plans for next turn…

My Thoughts

I smell Hotter Fire with that late Bloodburn… Now the question is how do we stop it. Injunction is one way… But expensive and Bigby has to survive for it… Truth w/ Flagbearers in front of Macciatus would be another, and that actually sounds pretty excellent. But I would want the deck stacked to lay them + Reteller all together… Oh well, can’t always get what you want I suppose? I could Lawful Search + Tax Collector, or I could tech up right now… No, I think I get the board as flush as possible, and then see what I can do from there. So I’ll get one Flagbearer and another Scribe, help me cycle quickly this second time, and get the tech 2 play stacked up.

Nice draws! Unfortunately, I can’t afford the MTruth zane kill AND tax collector. Nor should I really go for that, all things considered. I’ll just build a Hero’s Hall, and see how the RS goes.

Flagbearer, but none of my card draw. Oh well… Definitely will tech up

I wonder what the HH is for, maybe Free Speech? I don’t find that especially scary ATM. Of course, it could be something like Elite Training, which would give him some good trades right now, but I don’t expect that to be the case.
I’ll refrain from trading Musketeer into Tax Collector, to keep my deck just that little bit thinner. And I’ll tech a Bloodlust rather than Ember Sparks, to keep Newsman on 3 from blocking all my teched cards.

My Thoughts

Just doing my best to wall off Hotter Fire… He’s got a lot to break through to get at Newsie, and I’m hoping to take as much of it down as possible in the process. If I win a tech race, he has to respect that as well, and I’m drawing into MTruth for some counter-pressure… This loses to maxband Zane + Midband Drakk, but he still won’t get to Newsie that way… and I can dig up my truth t2 stuff w/ the card draw I have.

This was a bit of a messy turn, I hope I didn’t miss some crucial little detail…

BTW, your tech 2 and HH aren’t showing (and so is the 1 damage I put on your tech 1)

I can do a lot of damage with a Bloodlusted Firebird, more than enough to justify skipping a worker. I could even break both tech buildings, but I’d have to sacrifice Drakk for that, and I’d rather not. So I’ll settle for breaking tech 2 and clearing the board, especially given that Frozen probably hasn’t teched any more tech 1 units than those currently on the board.
Most importantly, I don’t see anything Frozen could do to prevent me from keeping the tech 2 down next turn.


#10

Turn looks good and I think that’s GG! I clearly guessed wrong with Newsman, had the tools to stop that but was sure the read was Hotter Fire, not Bloodlust…

You have my tech 2 for sure locked down and there’s no way I’m recovering without it, so GG WP and start the next game whenever you’re ready!


#11

Well, you were right about the Hotter Fires, but I also included a Bloodlust specifically to avoid being locked out by Newsman on 3 :upside_down_face:
Still, I was pretty lucky to draw it and the Firebird together like I did.

I’ll just keep us on this thread for now, if that’s ok with you.

I’m beginning to think the Blue starter has the best answers to Brogre. I’m forced to trade down a card, or lose a 2 gold investment.
Still, Frozen went down a card as well, so I’ll try to keep applying pressure. He’d have to go down another card to kill my Dog with an MTruth play, and I don’t think he will.
I’ll tech a Lobber to potentially get some early use out of Drakk’s midband, and a GPT just in case Aven drops next, and hope I get them spread over the next two turns.


#15

I would say Fargo is probably better, but yea White Green and Black aren’t great at it. Rook, Ironbark and I suppose Imp maybe gets a nod when patrolled in Technician, as he’s net +2 on cards for 1 more gold?

But yea, Arrest + Porky + MTruth is a decent set to go after the beast

Hmm, did he tech bloodlust, lobbers, or something else?? If bloodlust, I want Jail + Inspector probably. If Lobbers, probably Aven. Perhaps let’s go Aven, as I suspect he did not go for Bloodlust right away when down on cards a bit already. We’ll move to do probably Quince + draw cards next turn.

Okay not bad, if I get newsman or scribe w/ the LS I’ll really be able to wall up.



#16

Looks like a remnant from copy-pasting the last turn. From your board info I gather that you went:
Aven (4)
Inspector (3)
Tech 1 (2)
Worker (1)

Is that right?


#17

Yes, sorry about that. Hoping floating 1 and patrolling scav isn’t going to bite me in the ass :wink:

That sounds like projection to me :stuck_out_tongue: you wouldn’t happen to have a Tax Collector in hand, would you?

I’m giving Frozen a lot of gold to work with next turn. And with Lobber around, he could take Drakk out with a MTruth play. Still, I’d rather kill his weenies and sneak in some base damage, and start orienting for a Blood-y base race.
Putting my last gold into Drakk to avoid paying taxes, and who knows, maybe I’ll get to use his maxband next turn with a GPT steal, or a Pillage.
Aven is a problem, as usual, but Shoddy Glider counts as an answer, right? Actually, just going Blood tech 2 might force Frozen to play the Aven more defensively.

My Thoughts

Fun time to fast-tech. I could probably stand to use LS + whatever I draw instead, and dominate the board further, but I think it’s safe to tech up here while he can’t Zane max for much benefit. I know I’m drawing into Scribe and Newsman, so I know I can set up good position with either Quince max + mirror or Bigby + that stuff, and potentially be even better off depending on what I draw from Scribe (maybe I tech another scribe + another Macciatus? Maybe Free Speech?)

Either way, teching up is going to be very tricky for him!

Thoughts

If there’s any spec that can match Truth for efficiency, it’s Blood. This time, I don’t think Frozen could afford the no patrolling trick he pulled off before, so Ember Sparks could come in handy.
Frozen is also down on cards and hasn’t reshuffled yet (though a Scribe and/or Lawful Search could change that), so all I have to do now is keep applying pressure and keep him off of tech 3.
