Both combat spells kinda sucks but Vandy & Co Nightmare is a good start, we’ll see where he does with it. Likely lay Imp, kill whatever he lays, tech Dark Pact and BC

GL HF. Getting that start in 3/4 games so far is some impressive luck, but I’m actually pretty happy with my starting hand this time, so I present you with this puzzle.

Thoughts

I’ll try to bait hit into killing Onimaru, because he’ll have to max Vandy to do it, meaning no free levels for the kill, and if he does I get a $1 refund. If he doesn’t take the bait, I’ll use Oni to try and keep his board in check. I’m not worried about him using Metamorphosis on just 1 hero, because I could easily counter the invisibility with a tower.

If I kill Newsie my only safe play is Summon Skeletons. I don’t want to do that though, I want to play Imp. so I’ll leave Newsie on 1hp, he won’t be able to MTruth into anything with 2 or 1hp, and that means Jav in Front and Imp behind is safe even to MTruth + Arrest. Teching Dark Pact and BC, hopefully won’t whiff them both this time

Good got BC this time, can go that + Graveyard or Mid Vandy or HH next turn, depending on how his defense looks. Certainly I’ll want to push for an Oni kill if I can get it, but with no combat spells seems unlikely I will

Thoughts

Despite my blustery comment, I would have preferred if the Traffic Director and Porky had been in this hand, but there’s still a trick I can try to pull, though it’ll take a bit of luck. If I can nab a Boot Camp with Lawful Search, I can use it and Arrest to clear a path to Vandy, who Onimaru could then take out with Frenzy, and I can spend my remaining 2 gold to heal Onimaru. There’s only a 1/3 chance I can get the draw, but it’s worth the shot at taking board control, especially because Boot Camp will later allow me to buff Sirus without reducing my hand size.

I think this gives him the greatest grief to punish that greedy move on Oni, on vacation though so we’ll see if it works out
[/details]


#6

I decided it was worth taking a gamble if it might mitigate the risks I’d have to take later. I would have preferred to make a worker of course, but I thought Oni could slow you down enough to make up for it. Delaying the Tech I only matters if I picked a unit as the other card from my Codex, which I will neither confirm nor deny.

Thoughts

I know I’m facing Deteriorate and Sacrifice the Weak thanks to my Search. Between those and the option for Orpal to maxband and spread counters, keeping Oni alive isn’t viable, and I’d rather him die without giving away free levels. The Director can protect himself from Deteriorate and the Magistrate from Sacrifice, so my Tech I should survive.

Okay nothing hurt too bad with Oni trading, I still have a ton of pressure. Grabbing Soul Stone in the hopes I draw BC, Crypt Crawler as just another solid body (Hoodie is arguably better but eh, I like the sparkshot and to spend gold elsewhere).
… Drew graveyard AND BC, I think I’ll skip Garth to play both, next turn I’ll probably tech up but we’ll see.

Nice wrap-around draw, DP and Crypt Crawler.

#8

That turn went almost exactly like I expected, and as expected, seeing those 2/1s really makes me wish I could have afforded a Tower last turn. Oh well, better late than never, I guess. Btw, I think you forgot to list your Bone Collector on your board, and maybe also in your spreadsheet.

Thoughts

This is not a great situation, but I’ll try to be tricksy and aim to pop the Graveyard with Judgment Day. It’s a huge risk, because it’s not only an unlikely draw, but there’s also the discard threat and 2 ways it could easily be played around even if I do get the chance to cast it. So, I’ll build a Tower to make it look like I’m not saving gold, therefore the obvious assumption would be that I’m trying for a Hammer draw in which case adding more unit pressure should be a tempting strategy. It’s a huge risk, but experience has taught me that it’s impossible to win against a skilled Black player with the 3 body opening without taking risks.

Suspect Judgement is coming, time to dark pact for that Soul Stone (hopefully). Assuming that goes well, Tech 2 Necro seems reasonable, I’ll grab Skeletal Lord and another Soul Stone.

Yup, Soul Stone. No Deteriorate, that’d make breaking buildings easier, but I’ll just go straight face, I’m getting close to lethalizing anyway.
