[MMM1] Game 10: P1 Blue (Nekoatl) vs P2 Black (FrozenStorm)

[details=My Thoughts][spoiler]
This is by far the worst starting black hand I’ve had (especially against that TD + Oni open). No haunt or Jav to bring support, no Imp to start the hand bleed, not even Graveyard to play behind Orpal in Elite (which is really a decent move). The only thing worse would be having Summon Skele instead of Jandra.

My options are I have to either:

  • Play Archery + Orpal/Nothing and go ham next turn
  • Play Jandra and just trade even at best
  • Play Orpal + PBR and hope he doesn’t have MTruth
  • Play Orpal + Nothing

Seriously, if we can’t get Blue a win here idk how this matchup ever passed QA to be bundled in a box together (I still don’t know how Black particularly looked balanced in play testing when it has so clearly dominated competitive play, Necro particularly).

Archery will just force a tower, that’s not super great for me unless I think I can win a tech2 race… no matter what I do I’m ceding board position (unless I play Jandra and he DOESNT trade Oni straight away). Y’know, he probably won’t, so I guess that’s what I’ll do.

I may end up going for Lich’s Bargain this game, but I suppose we’ll see what happens.

I didn’t have a great turn 2 hand, but I’ll certainly give it my best.

Going ahead to build the Jail. It may not be terribly useful right now, but I’ll probably want it later, and this gets it out of my hand cycle for a while. I’m also not sure if I’ll want a Tower or a different add-on, so I’m keeping it open for now.

Well, I think I either tech up or play hard with my big demonz here. Grabbing dark pact to combat jail, and soul stone for Jandra, and we’ll lay the hand near-empty + tech 1. He almost certainly will go for the graveyard if he can get to it, and then we’ll see where we’re at from there.

No Dark Pact but yes Soul Stone, that’s a plus at least. If he draws to kill Jandra, probably going Tech 2 + Orpal Elite lol

I really don’t like Imp/Graveyard or Haunt/Graveyard, so I’ll spend some cards to clear.

Teching Art to break some tech buildings and otherwise wreak havoc. Even with 2 -1/-1 runes, it’s still formidable, and I plan to try to get him back up and running ASAP whenever he dies.

Looks like he’s going for that trade again. It is reasonably neutral for him, getting the ducks like he does that’s 3 more attack. Teching a Dozer and Hoodie, I don’t have enough units in the deck and hopefully I’ll be able to clear off that Jail (or just push through it). Gonna Dark Pact to see if I can dig out that Deteriorate

Woo 50/50 deteriorate draw on that DP! With that, luckily, I can clear enough of these little ducks out that he has to have MTruth here to get Vandy killed. Next turn I’ll setup for Meta (if Vandy survives) or start working Dozers w/ a Garth fetch most likely. Tech 3 hard to push for until I get that Jail eliminated

Well, I drew very well, perhaps I’ll push the Dozer through the jail directly…

A difficult situation. I can effectively defend against Vandy or Jandra, but not both. I’ll try to build board presence with units. If ignored, they’ll eventually add up to become a threat, and if attacked, they’ll act as a stall until I can get a proper defense up.

Ok then, I guess I’ll go for Meta. I’m almost certainly not getting a 3-hero off, so no sense building HH. I’ll just be sure to block heavy for Vandy, and I’ll let Orpal die. He must be planning Hammers and just trying to base race or something? Idk exactly. I’m going to make him recycle though

No meta but I have DP, we’ll figure it out.
[/details]


#11

I’m pretty sure you’re correct about the timing. As I understand it, in combat, all Swift Strike damage is dealt simultaneously, and then all other damage is dealt simultaneously, including Tower damage and Overpower, so Technician and Jail die at the same time before any effects of their deaths are processed.

I would much rather have drawn one of my Free Speeches than that Art of War, but I’ll have to try to make do with Newsman, which means Vandy can fetch and cast Metamorphosis on herself and Garth. I’ll offer Bigby as a sacrificial defender and use him to Stash Art of War for Onimaru. I wish I could patrol the Soldiers, but against Jandra, it’s too risky.

[details=My Thoughts]
Ohhh is he trying to Art of War me? Well I didn’t draw Meta, I’m 66% to draw it with Dark Pact but with my base now at 12… might just be better to take some kills with Doom Grasp and Jandra, so that I know I’m not vulnerable? The downside of that is Free Speech is definitely swimming around in there too, but if I fetch a Dozer I can just plow for awhile. Okay, going for Hero’s Hall and threaten the Meta next turn, take out as much of his board as possible, backup plan to plow with Dozers. We know he doesn’t have arrest anymore, so Dozer is a staunch SQL protector against Newsie + 2 soldiers

On my sheet (and in my discard/draw) I played pestering haunt, but I didn’t mark it on my board. Apologies for that, Does that change anything for your patrol?


#15

Yeah, I’ll go ahead and fill my patrol zone. Thanks for mentioning it.

[details=My Thoughts]
Okay I can wipe his board entirely, I could lay the other dozer but honestly I’m going to sacrifice it to Meta anyway, might as well play imp instead. Between the Dozer I already have and Imp, I should be able to clear him out. Workering this Meta, I’ll fetch one next turn.

#17

Free Speech is in effect, so Vandy doesn’t have Sparkshot.


#18

Then haunt trades with elite, no other change

Thoughts

Having Onimaru patrol solo so the Dozer can’t Overpower him. I’m still worried a big turn or two will take me out before his base bleeds to death, but the fact that my base is still at full HP is a good sign, at least.

[details=My Thoughts]
Hammer, my base is reaching critical, but with no haste I’m still safe enough to all but guarantee domination next turn. Soul Stone Jandra is there just to make extra sure. Free Speech would buy time (no invis), but with the tech 1 down he loses scribes as a means of cycling.

My other Free Speech is in my deck and I have no card draw in hand, so you’ve got lethal next turn. GG. Even though there were several close calls, I didn’t manage to secure a win, but hey, this matchup is notorious for a reason, after all, and it was fun.

Btw, I didn’t want to switch mid-run, but I’d like to try using your spreadsheet template. Do you have a link?
