Now here’s a solid opening split. I considered Aven instead of Oni, for a potential destructive MTruth play next turn, but I don’t want to go down on cards so early.
Next turn I probably tech up and play Jail, but Inspector+heroes’ hall is also an option. And so is Arrest of course, if the opportunity for a hero kill presents itself.

Let’s think this through. He has a very aggressive set up with Oni and TD on T1. I want to build T1 before the inspector is out and I’m tempted to also build a tower for the same reason. That would eliminate TD after he attacks once. On the other hand, I’m likely to just lose th tower next turn and that’s 3g down the drain. Lets think this through, dear reader, because this is a first turn. If i build tower, next turn i float 0 and have no tower and facing a slightly injured Oni. If i play Fargo, i have to choose. In lookout, he probably wont arrest him but kill him with oni. TD can still ping my tech 1. If Fargo is somewhere else, hes going to want to arrest him but now he knows that with $1 float i can worker And Max Geiger and flicker Fargo. If he kills Fargo, his board remains strong but my tech 1 only suffers 1. With Plexus and Mox next turn, I should be ok. Question is: where do I patrol Fargo? Elite would force leveling Oni or using him for defense, or push him to arrest (if he has that, 50%). SQL will have the same effect. Techn is a no go and scav - he might just trade and let me have the gold but since that’s the best scenario for me, I think he’s not super likely to do so. Now that I think of it, Arrest is much worse for me here than it was in the last game because he would deal 4 damage to my tech 1 and then, even if I flicker Fargo, he can deal the last damage next turn with TD. It’s not a disaster because I can tech Now!s and use Geiger to stall until I get the tech 1 is back up but that’s not ideal. At least with tower, I punish the little director for his sins. So dear reader, what will it be? Is tower better, or is Fargo in lookout better? He might still arrest him but it’ll cost him (I’m expecting a 2g blocked newsy next turn so he fargo in lookout would mean he can’t do newsy and arrest without skipping a worker, which he won’t do). So I think I’m gonna go with lookout.

With Jail in play, Oni should be fairly safe. He only dies to a jailbreaked Nullcraft, and HolyTispon would have to skip a worker to get free levels from that kill.

After the draw: whiffed both teched cards :grimacing: I might Lawful Search next turn to try and dig for one of them, or just midband Oni, assuming he survives.

As expected, with Fargo in lookout, Oni kills him and TD pings the tech 1. we’ve gone to Jail, which makes things really hard here as I wanted to play at least two units. no newsy though, and no building inspector.
Facing Jail makes me want to play defense with a hero. Geiger would only be safe as max (which will be wasted) and cost me 6, leaving me with nothing. if Geiger is not maxed, he can’t kill him without levelling Oni - but that’s not a bad move to midband Oni, and then invest just 1 more to get max Oni with ducklings. I can max Geiger and patrol him in Elite, which would prevent him from doing this. He would probably just tech up and flood the board. So that’s an option, but it gives up Geiger’s max and I’ll still be somewhat disadvantaged on the board - what tech 1 unit would I be hoping to get? Stewardess? Alterantively, I can play the Battle Suits down now, with either a tower or L1 Geiger/Vir in Elite.With tower, I’m forcing him to midband Oni if he is to break my tech 1 but that would also not be a bad idea for him, probably. The director doesn’t even have to die. I can tech Now!s and and take the base damage and come out strongly next turn with… what? Geiger with haste, and maybe one more unit - will not be much against Brave Knight or Cadets. Actually, Vir/Geiger in Elite + tower means he can’t even kill my hero even if he midbands because of the tower. Director could ping me once more but that’s it. Oni will probably stay on the backline and hide behind a bunch of cadets or something. but that would mean skipping on Battle Suits for now, which is a shame. And I also have to decide which her to play. If I think he can survive, I think Geiger is preferable for the early game. if not, than Vir.
So, dear reader, what will it be - battle suits or a hero? If he has Elite Training, which he might, the hero plan would not work. I’m going with Vir then - if he survives, I can use him to get around Jail. If he doesn’t - oh well, it’s time to think about something.

Playing Jail seems to have worked too well, in that I have nothing to copy or Arrest… Vir on board makes me suspect that HolyTispon is looking to Assimilate my Jail. I can trade Oni for him to prevent that, which is probably what HolyTispon intended when he patrolled him in Elite. Hmm, I might as well Lawful Search to get a better read on him.
A bit of a pity that I have to choose teched cards before the Lawful Search (1st world problems, eh?). I’m thinking Free Speech would be good to counter the hero-based tactics that Jail encourages, and Tax Collector could punish defensive, economical play.

Whiffed my teched cards again… Meanwhile, HolyTispon has both of his teched Seers, which are not a bad play around Jail. OTOH, they don’t make for a very scary board presence. I can hold them off with tech 0’s, even 1-drops.
I want to stay up on cards and float 1, to be able to play both Knight and Cadet next turn while also teching up. So I’ll trade with Vir, bring Quince in to threaten Mirror shenanigans, and Inspector to tax teching up on HolyTispon’s side.

After the draw: when it rains it pours… I might manage to fit Tax Collector in there somewhere, but Knight and tech 2 are still top priority. Which spec? If Seers are an indication of Past tech 2… err, well, I’ll have to brush up on that, I haven’t really faced it yet in this match-up. Maybe Air Hammers to kill fragile backliners like Rememberer and Slow-Time Generator?

Vir did his job. And now his watch is over. Sadly, I’m still kind of behind on board - his board isn’t very scary but the jail is delaying me and every tiny inspector can become a Brave Knight with Manufactured Truth (and so can the mirror), and he still has that annoying arrest so I’m going down on cards to put up a defense. Hopefully I’ll be able to do temporal research soon (dear reader, would have been better to give up the Mox in exchange for staying up in cards?). He’s teching up, and so should I. I’m teching a Sentry which is cheap to help break out of Jail. KotC would be good for the same reason.
Actually changed my mind. Will go for cards instead of Mox for now.

So my plan for the turn was Brave Knight + tech 2 (+Cadet), but with Prynn in play I think I need to kill her before she maxbands and starts trashing my guys, especially considering with the jailed Seer ready to boost her.
I can get her with MTruth, but then I have to give up either Knight or tech 2. Knight is easier to let go, considering I can still play Tax Collector and Cadet (going down on cards, but also thinning my deck).
I’m still not sure if I want Peace for Air Hammers or Law for Juggernauts. Having Insurance Agents would be nice for cycling, but Law feels very vulnerable to air. I’ll try to bring Bigby in next turn to help line up my draws.
I think I’m in a pretty comfortable position after this turn. I’m down on cards, but ahead in tech as P1, and in control of the board without fear of Rewind. I feel a little bit vulnerable after workering Newsman, but I’m hoping Free Speech would make up for that.

Again, got to decide on my tech choices before the Lawful Search… Other Peace tech 2’s aren’t very appealing right now. Spy could’ve been nice if it weren’t for tower, but I need cards more than I need gold anyway. And Garrison is out due to Assimilate, of course.
So I’ll go with Scribe to help with my cycle, and Injunction to help me stay ahead in tech. Future spec makes Community Service tempting as well, but I find Injunction more reliable.

Got Scribe, nice! HolyTispon mostly has spells in hand, so I might want to Free Speech, but I’ll wait to see my other draw.

Traffic Director, that’s fine. Easy worker. I have 5 gold left, which I could for two of: Free Speech, Bigby, and a Mirror. I definitely want a Mirror, to set up a copied Air Hammer next turn.
And even though it brings me back down on cards, I’ll also play Free Speech. It all but cancels HolyTispon’s next turn, and I still have better than fair odds of drawing Air Hammer.
,
After the draw: got both Air Hammer and MTruth. Dare I say the game is finished?

I got the double tech lock, and I’m setting up double copied Air Hammers for next turn. A single maxband hero, even with teched spells, will barely slow me down next turn. The only hitch I can imagine is Rewind, but even that isn’t so bad with my low-cost, effect-on-Arrival units.

Note that you can’t rebuild tech 2 this turn, since tech 1 is disabled. Silver lining is you float 1 more gold… Do you want to change anything about your turn?


#16

Hmm. I don’t think I can recover from that but FWIW patrol Vir in the Technician slot.


#17

Edit: @holytispon btw, after this turn your base should be at 16, since it took damage from tech 2 breaking the previous turn.

Thoughts

My original plan for this turn was very different. It revolved around breaking the Jail before playing any units, and involved a bunch of resources put into killing Vir. But then I couldn’t figure out how best to defend again maxband Prynn next turn.
My solution: the new plan revolves around keeping Vir alive! He’s the least scary Purple hero, given that he’s already summoned his mech and that teching his Ulti is extremey rare. And thanks to an early Traffic Director ping on tech 1, I can keep the tech-lock going and thus prevent other heroes being played.
By trading with Sentry, I ensure my Air Hammer survives to fight another turn. And with Quince behind a wall of bodies, there’s a good chance Mirror Hammer will survive too.

That’s all I got at this point.

Thoughts

So, clearly he wanted me not to be able to trade Vir, so that Prynn can’t come out. Luckiy(?) I didn’t draw Rewind, but it’s possible I can still use it next turn, which is why I’m going to use Vir to kill Bigby and get rid of Injunction, while letting me possibly trade Vi next turn.

This should be game, unless I’m missing something. He has nothing but Mox to attack with, no spells or hero abilities to play, and no flying units to stop my Air Hammers from dealing lethal next turn.


#20

That Free Speech seals it. I can’t do anything to stop the Air Hammers from pummeling my base next turn. Well played. I made some serious errors, specifically in workering useful cards and not thinking things through. I was traveling and jet-lagged and should have just slowed down my play.
It’s a funny thing, playing on the forums. On the one hand, I spend a lot more time on each turn than I would ever in playing in person - thinking (and writing down) different play paths, considering different combinations etc. On the other hand, I think my mind is not half as much in the game as it is when I play in person, and I sometimes make turns hastily without thinking how they all come together, and so often I start off a plan, then do something weird that has nothing to do with the plan and mess everything up.

Any case, well played. Without that free speech, I may have had a chance - was planning to use Now! on the Mech to use it before you steal it.
