[MMM1] GAME 1: P1 Black (FrozenStorm) vs P2 Blue (NekoAtl)


#1

@Nekoatl well after 13 warmup games, I feel much more hopeful about Blue overall than I used to! However, I got the “dream start”, so I think this first game is going to be pretty uphill for you. GL HF!

This looks to be the classic Black murderfest, but Nekoatl has proven himself a very skilled blue player. Looking forward to this series!

Thoughts

The Newsman could keep a hero alive for a turn, but keeping him alive the following turn is unlikely, as I have to assume some other unit will enter play next turn and Dark Pact will allow access to both Deteriorate and Sacrifice the Weak the following turn, which could shred through any defense I could mount. I’ll take some base damage now (hopefully mitigated by the Tech I building) to stockpile gold; maybe I can manage a swing with Judgment Day later.

It’s somewhat unfortunate I don’t have a great way to get another unit down here (I could lay Jandra but unless I also tech Soul Stone, which I don’t want to do, she can become a liability and besides, getting back up to 5 cards maximizes my combat effectiveness with spells).

On to quick cycling and getting Vandy a buddy next turn :slight_smile:

Thoughts

A 2 hero Metamorphosis rush could land as early as turn 4, so I need to either tech Free Speech or Jurisdiction. Jurisdiction might work with this gold-hoarding strategy, but I expect to need that gold for other things. Without more opposing units, Judgment Day wouldn’t do much for me, and MIrror Illusions might be able to buy enough time.

Bad timing for deteriorate (last hand obviously would have gotten another base damage) but that’s fine. Teching in Shadow Blade to help bust patrol, and Crypt Crawler for anti-Aven countermeasures (plus sparkshot might be helpful if he goes for Quince + mirrors or max Oni

Thieving Imp + Tech 2 will probably be the play, though perhaps we’ll level Vandy instead to better set up Meta for turn 6

Thoughts

I don’t need to worry about Cursed Ghouls popping Illusions yet, so empowered Mirrors are still a viable defense. It’s tempting to take a worker in place of the Newsman copy, but I’m afraid I’ll need all the patrollers I can get next turn, and I don’t want to fall behind on hand size. Since I’m burning through my gold reserves, I’ll aim for Mind Control as a swing instead of Judgment Day. It doesn’t have Judgment Day’s clearing power, but against this divided approach between hero investment and unit deployment, it might be a strong enough swing to keep me in the game.

Huh, interesting defense for him, no tower is a problem though. I’ll leave mirror and real Newsman alone for now, and just focus on disappearing the little piggies. I’m amassing a gigantic board that will be tough to handle.

Ouch… I hit the 17% chance of not drawing Free Speech. The only way to avoid losing next turn is to build a Tower, and there’s almost no chance I’ll survive the following turn regardless of what I play.

GG WP. I’d prefer to do 5 then switch, rather than switching each game.
