[MMM1] GAME 1: P1 White (FrozenStorm) vs P2 Blue (Akiata)

All right @Akiata, we’ve had a good set of warm-ups, hopefully that will make for a representative and exciting 10-game series here! As suggested we’ll do 5 games same sides (White P1, Blue P2) and then switch sides and do 5 the other way.

Good Luck and Have Fun!

My Thoughts

Rook has proven himself the superior early-game brawler to Grave for this particular matchup (IMO, along with Bird’s Nest), so let’s do that!


Best of luck!

Strong opening! With Traffic Director in hand I can get a hero out safely.

I’m tempted to get Tower up instead though. Next turn I can get Newsman, Musketeer and maybe Oni out, and it might help me to fight for the board. I’ll try that.

Let it thus be known that my cunning strategy of building a T1 Tower has in fact caused 1 damage (so far) to Rook, that will be healed on Frozen’s next upkeep. You have to celebrate these small victories. And this one certainly is. Small. As frustrating cards go, Safe Attacking is waaay up there. Really seems like Blue has no good answers.

Ugh, a 1-drop would be nice to have here. Sensei’s advice is going to really screw me over. Because with that, by biggest blocker (Newsman) in SQL succumbs to Savior + Aged Sensei, and then Rook can midband and stomp past Musketeer to assassinate Oni. And Frozen would still have the cash and cards to worker.

So, it’s beginning to look like my plan for this game still has a couple of kinks to work out. It’s baaad trades all day. So what are my least worst options?

Worker, Tech I and Muskteer in SQL, float $3. Saviour Monk + Aged Senei account for Musketeer. Then a maxband Rook could break the tower. If Sensei’s advice? Midband Rook accounts for Musketeer, and Monk and Sensei break tech I.

Worker, Tech I. Musketeer and Newsman, float $1. I’m making very crummy trades, but protecting my tower and tech I. Down to four cards. Birds will be coming out. Really rough.

Oh he was holding Sensei’s Advice? Worst case scenario confirmed.

And here come the birbs, and it’s more bad trades… and birds + mid Rook and that’s a tech break vs a lone patroller. I was thinking that fending white off until I can get to Tech II would be the go, but unless I flood the board here, I can’t actually protect Tech II. Even still this is going to go pretty poorly methinks.

Going to go MM + Reversal, likely to tech up next turn but want to be able to react quickly if an injunction or Judgment Day comes down.


@akiata just a friendly reminder bump, no sweat if you’re busy!

Apologies for the delay, life got a little hectic there for a few days!

I don’t think this one’s going to go my way here.

OK, I’m basically just giving stuff away for free here, and not keeping up.

Teching in Judgement Day, and building Tech 2 as a bit of a misdirect… but I’m pretty humped here either way.

My Thoughts

This’ll be GG there’s no coming back from this much board advantage


I’ll concede the game there. Very well played! I was 50/50 to draw Judgement Day from my technician draw there and I missed it. Though, at this stage I’m not sure it would have made a difference. I thought an early tower would really help prop up my T0 units but white’s got plenty of answers and it proved wholly ineffectual. Wasn’t able to get the Aven out early either, which didn’t help.

I certainly could have played better, but perhaps that counts as a ‘representative’ matchup of these two decks. We’ll see I suppose - on to Game 2!!
