Stall stall stall… Zane makes for a nice kill. Probably Bigby will be a casualty, but hopefully next turn I can go to tech 3, if not the turn after.

Actually, another Free Speech would’ve probably been better there…

I can bring the base down to 2, while clearing patrol. With Drakk and a Bomber still on board, and drawing into Lobber and Barrows, I think that should do the trick.

My Thoughts

Well shit, he got a lot on base last turn… I can free speech to prevent Drakk damage, and then hope to draw Gryphons? It’s my only chance…

Well after LS, it’s clear that will not work. My Free Speech and Injunction were off timing… So no tech 3 yet… Hope to survive another turn!



#44

The last two cards in my deck are Lobber and the other Crashbarrow, so w/e the Surplus gives me, I can make it to lethal. GG WP!
I was quite lucky with the Desperation on T5, but it’s still nice to know that a Drakk-fueled tech 1 zerg rush can work in this matchup :slight_smile:

I’ll post T1 of the next game in a bit.


#45

Bah! GG WP. I needed Free Speech sooner it seems. That, choosing to leave Oni vulnerable right when you got that Desperation (he was probably safe to no desperation) and my bone-headed patrol on turn 6, not protecting Jail, was the killing blow.

This has been a fun matchup thus far!


#46

Yeah, I don’t want to give you ideas or anything (not that you need any…), but I feel that Free Speech is quite crippling on Red, more so than against other mono colors. The Red heroes are all pretty lousy brawlers, so without their abilities they’re almost dead weight, especially late in the game.

Anyway, GL HF in Game #4!

Musketeer+Dog worked well the last time I tried it, IIRC, but I feel like I’ve been going down on cards too early and too often in this series. So Jaina can take Musketeer’s place.
If Oni+Aven come in, I think I’ll just trade into him and play Bloodburn. Oni+anything else, I’ll probably answer with Brogre or Bombaster.


#47

It’s just really tough to use Free Speech early, 4 gold on Quince and that leaves a pretty big opening for you to tech up without any threat from me.

Interesting that Frozen went with Musketeer over Oni, is he scared of giving up lvls, or does he just want to keep his options open?
I think trading Mad Man and Dog is worth it, to avoid the building cost, but do I use the remaining 2 gold to play Brogre or build HH? I like the idea of keeping my handsize up in the early game, so I’ll go with HH.
Since I’ll probably want to invest gold in my heroes, I’ll tech a cheap Lobber, and Bloodlust as my answer to a likely Aven. I almost went with Fire Dart instead, but it’s only actually better against Brave Knight, I guess? And It’s even blocked by Newsman on the same number, so forget it.

Bloodlust is in hand right on time. I’m putting enough pressure to probably win the race to tech 2 next turn, and keep some pressure by playing Lobber (or if I don’t draw him, Zane).
Blood is always a solid tech, and I think I might get good value out of Ogre Recruiter.
The lvls go to Drakk, to set up his midband with Lobber next turn. I could set up healing Jaina instead, but in the long run I’d rather have Drakk’s maxband in 2$ range.

I want a peek at what he’s rocking. I suspect Lobber or GPT. Teching FS and OC, hoping to go Peace engine not too long.

Hmm, no teched cards. He can’t bring too much thunder, so safe for BK to come out and put some threat out. Let’s do that

Okay nice RS draw, got Scribe to help get a RS, and MTruth to make good use of my mirror and BK.

Didn’t expect the Brave Knight, though I’m now even happier I teched Recruiter. Unfortunately, if I tech up right now I’ll certainly lose both Jaina and Drakk, and I’m not prepared for that.
I can spend 5$ and a card to clear out the 5$ and a card Frozen put on board, and get a maxband Drakk out of the mix, which sounds reasonable. I’ll tech things I could play next turn, and keep my deck balanced between tech 1, tech 2, and spells. Hopefully, I won’t draw both my tech 2’s prematurely.

No tech 2’s yet! But a pretty spell-heavy hand. Getting hit with an Injunction right now would be really bad…

My Thoughts

Well, 40% chance I hit OC or TD if I scribe (which would make a perfect partner for teching up), 20% I hit Free Speech (which would suck and probably force me to finish my turn with like Bigby + Newsman + 1float, but that’s not unwinnable) and 40% to just have little else to do but tech up and expect to get a building killed.

Seems worth it, so let’s do it. Tech Garrison and another OC to start the ball rolling but not be hard-committed to anything.

And the bad thing happened… boo. Okay then, continue to try and just make it as hard to trade well as possible…

I actually feel much safer teching up with this board state. There’s not much I could do with my current hand anyway, so why not replenish my handsize?
I have pretty excellent odds of drawing a tech 2, and I don’t see how I could lose Drakk right now, so hopefully I’ll be able to make a big play next turn.

Hmm. Well, this is one of those rare instances, I think, where I want to give Zane levels. I need to get rid of Bigby so I can free speech, and actually a maxband zane is a lot less scary than a midband one. So yea, have those free levels Zane :wink: Then Free Speech, tech up, max protect, and hope I hit a garrison + unit & he doesn’t have 2x barrow!

Nice reshuffle draw! This works nicely as long as we’re only looking at 1 barrow :slight_smile:

Hmm, nice play by Frozen, giving Zane lvls to keep me from using his maxband. And the Free Speech is well-timed, as always.
I’m also reluctant to play Recruiter right now, with Quince around to copy him. Although, come to think of it, all I need to do is kill the Mirror to prevent that, since MTruth can’t copy tech 2’s.
I’ll even tech another Recruiter, as it seems like a sensible answer to Peace tech 2, along with a Bugblatter. Or is a PGC better? Nah, I expect to kill Frozen’s stuff at least as often as he kills mine :stuck_out_tongue:

My Thoughts

Interesting recruiter… Obviously can be a problem. Teching Flagbearer and the other DS

Nice DS draw to lead! Didn’t get the TD or Aven in time, but did get MTruth! So that’s definitely helpful in breaking up his patrol. I’d rather not give him cards, so killing GPT and Arresting Ogre feels right. If only I’d drawn TD from BK, could have kills Zane too… I’m going to use my last gold on a truth lab, macciatus and reteller would be a nice addition to the deck for t1/2 variety, as well as buffing more flagbearers and hounds I’ll want.

Thoughts

I’m free from Free Speech for a turn, let’s make it count!
I see more value in breaking the Garrison and the tech 2 than in killing Quince or the Newsman. In fact, leaving Quince around means Frozen can’t bring in maxband Oni, so that’s a net positive. He’ll replay the BK, and maybe add a Scribe and another Free Speech, but I think I have enough board presence to break through and re-break the tech 2.

Maybe I should’ve patrolled Jaina in technician - I didn’t consider how MTruth on the Newsman would let him kill her due to the +1 rune.

Looks pretty hopeless… oh well, trying my best here but it seems that isn’t good enough. He’s just so gold and card efficient.

Paying 1 for resist won’t stop me from recruiting that Newsman! We’ll see how Frozen likes it when he can’t use his stalling spells :stuck_out_tongue:
