Forest’s Favor

Thoughts

Let the awful 2-gold openers begin. Good spell/unit options to cover Calamandra next turn, if I don’t get hit with Pillage. Getting rid of Verdant Tree first, healing would be nice on offence but Young Treant could be nice to patrol in front of my attackers later on.

alright, dont feel good about a hero just yet. none of my hero’s swing very hard on turn 2. just do the typical 2 unit drop and see what the response is.

Merfolk Prospector
Ironbark Treant
Spore Shambler
Rich Earth
Rampant Growth

Thoughts

I don’t think I can be punished too hard for whittling down the Bombaster like this. It seems better than midband or Rampant Growth to kill it, that doesn’t leave enough gold to give myself a board presence.

Going for bigger units to try and get something to stick: I need to go on the offensive so codexnewb can’t just go for Gunships, and Calamandra’s midband should help if codexnewb goes for Kidnapping. I’ll have 3 gold after midbanding Calamandra to heal, so I think Centaur should be good. I’m not especially confident about teching in Behind the Ferns, but it seems like a way I could potential get in some surprise kills at an early stage in the game, and I’m currently looking for ways to go on the offense earlier.

Rampant Growth

Thoughts

Midband Calamandra kills Bombaster, Prospector trades with Dog, Rampant Growth Treant to destroy the Tech I, then I can’t afford defenders so Calamandra probably dies. Let’s not do that. On the other hand, if I cast Forest’s Favor on the Treant and destroy the Tower instead, that’s a bigger annoyance dealt with, codexnewb has to deal with a 3/1 Calamandra and a 4/2 Ironbark Treant. That’s sill vulnerable to Kidnapping, though. I’ll just kill the Bombaster, and keep building up my board ready for Behind the Ferns.

Not sure what I want for Tech II yet. I’ll put in Murkwood Allies to go with Behind the Ferns, and Galina Glimmer so codexnewb can’t just sit back and tech up.

Workering Forest’s Favor over Playful Panda: they’re both useful, but the latter is slightly better with Galina in the deck.

Tough hand, this. I’m wondering whether to risk drawing with Young Treant. I think it’s worth delaying Tech II to try and get more things on the board, especially if I can play Behind the Ferns in the process. I’m guessing from Crash Bomber that codexnewb is going for Bugblatter again, but I’m not very certain about that. In any case, I feel like trying to go Feral again.

For teching, I need cards that I can use if the Young Treant draws them. Ferocity should be good here, as should another Centaur.

6 gold after Prospector is enough for worker + Centaur + Behind the Ferns, I think that’s fine. The Crash Bomber will be a pain, though.

Thoughts

OK, Anarchy II I can deal with for now, Behind the Ferns lets me get past Steam Tanks easily enough. I don’t plan to let it stick, though.

I can just about blow through and destroy the Tech II here without spending any gold, so I’m not sure what codexnewb’s got in mind for retaliation. Maybe Zane to shove me around, but maybe I’m not expecting hasted units in tow, unless I’m looking at Sharks. Centaur + Galina should be OK to keep Calamandra safe, which is the important thing, but if I want the Prospector to help destroy the Tech II then I’ll need to delay Tech II again. In that case I want a Heroes’ Hall for Argagarg’s spells.

Teching in two Dinosizes, my deck is pretty spell-heavy but Calamandra can bring in a Tiger if I start to run low on units here, and it makes up for me workering Rampant Growth here.

Thoughts

Couple of ways I can get more on the board, but I think this is the best way: patrol full of units with 1 attack so Crash Bomber won’t get its death ability off. The Tiger can be stolen, but it only gets stealth against units so that doesn’t help codexnewb very much. I skip a worker, but the extra teched cards won’t matter for a long time, so I’m not worried about it.

My main worry is ending the game before codexnewb manages to make a Tech III stick. Secondary worry is Flame Arrow or Drakk + Monkey, since those can kill Calamandra. Not much I can do about them, unless I bring in Spirit of the Panda for the healing. I think I go for double Stampede instead, let’s try and end this.

Fun game! Beyond the Ferns worked out a lot better than I thought it would, the turn I played it on felt so awkward.

feel free to start the next one when you’re ready.

Starting tomorrow, might will slow down once we hit CAMS next week.
