Since I’ve never actually played purple, I’ll have to take your word for it! It looks like you’re trying some new things, though.

Trading Aven for Sentry seems reasonable, seeing as I’m not using it for much else, and holytispon doesn’t get any goodies. Other than that, I’m perfectly fine playing a little passively. I’ll tech up and rebuild my handsize, and set up a copied Brave Knight next turn.
If this game continues at its current slow pace, I feel like Law would be the way to go. I could keep restricting his options, stay ahead economically with Insurance Agents, and try to get tech 3 before he builds up a viable threat. It’s worth a shot, anyway.

I wonder if I should have played that hero here. I am going for an expensive strategy so I thought saving some money wouldn’t be bad and I didn’t really have much at hands to play - any unit I play will go to Jail, the Stewardess will not be able to pop the mirror and I’m not sure what Fargo could do for me right now. Would I rather have Fargo on the board? the problem is that with tech 2, and a mirror in play he can actually put a bunch of pressure on me and I do need some bodies. the mirror can become a tech 2 unit he plays and attack, and the newsman can mirror into something. But I guess it’s better not to give him the fargo to mirror into. I’ll just have to survive something like a mirrored Justice Juggernaut or maybe some elaborate insurance agents play.
Playing Vir could help bring bodies to the board, but he’s just likely to be killed. It’s probably better to play Geiger just to have a blocker and save Vir but the problem is that it will be feeding levels to Quince. I guess it’s worth it?

If only I’d drawn Injunction rather than Insurance Agent this turn! He’s basically a dead draw, and I didn’t consider his negative synergy with
Brave Knight. Oh well, I’ll probably find some use for him later.
Speaking of the Future… is it possible that holytispon chose it to play around my Jail? Considering what he’s said about copies and illusions, I’d think he’d steer clear of Omegacrons. I find it more likely that he’ll go for Hive, since that plays around Quince and is a fair answer to Gryphon, which he probably realizes is my win condition.
So what can I get to answer Hives? It’s a bit late to be counting on Community Service, so what, Hallucination? I don’t have a lot of targeting options, other than Insurance Agent. Elite Training could be a nice versatile complement to that, except that it only targets my units… Let’s see, Mind Control doesn’t steal nor kill the Stingers, if I understand correctly. And crap, even Injunction doesn’t work right on Hive. I might be forced to get Judgment Day, eventually, but I’ll wait another cycle before I commit to that.
For now, I’ll tech Hallucination and another Agent, and I’ll use Bigby to stash one of them if the draws don’t line up.

I’m not at all sure this was a good move. I may easily be facing two unstoppable juggernauts next turn with a maxed Quince ready to mind control things. But we’ll see, I guess. I took a risk exhasuting Max, hoping to get that promsie of payment. That would have allowed me to play hive for free now and then best it out with a stewardess that can then be busetd out to pop a mirror and patrol for now. It would have also put Vir on the board, relatively protected, where he can play cards around the freaking Jail. I really would have loved to have Now! at hand at this point but…

#25

@holytispon Geiger needs to be at lvl 3 to use discard->draw. Dunno how critical that is for the rest of your turn, but you’re a bit short on gold to do that.


#26

Damn. that’s true. Sorry about that. Actually didn’t matter at all to my turn because I took a risk to hit something that I didn’t. I’ll just do the same turn with Nullcraft instead of Sentry. I’ll repost in a few.

Damn, that happened faster than I was hoping…
Not really equipped to deal with Hive, unless I top-deck Hallucination. holytispon patrolling it means I can use Arrest, but that will be my entire turn due to resist. I’ll give it a shot with Lawful Search. In the meantime, I’ll tech Judgment Day and Elite Training, cause I need a backup plan for dealing with Hive in case Quince dies.

Hmm, Insurance Agent. I could use him to draw another card by killing Fargo. Just need to decide if I can spare 1 gold to keep a hero alive while doing it. Yeah, I think I have to.

Hallucination! But, I’ve only now remembered to look at his next hand and, well, it looks like I’m screwed. No point paying 8 gold, skipping worker, and putting nothing on board, all to pop one Hive, if he can just play another (for free!) next turn.
So new plan: surviving against Hive. I would’ve liked to use Injunction ($3), maxband Quince ($2), play a Brave Knight ($3), and build a tower ($3), but I only have 8 gold. I guess tower is a must, and levelling Quince is worth it just for the attacks holytispon has to spend on him. Brave Knight lets me get rid of Geiger and score 2 levels for Bigby, but next turn he gets bounced by Stewardess. OTOH, Injunction keeps holytispon from bringing in another Hive and another hero, meaning I might have a chance to keep this contained. That sounds better.
I’ll stash Hallucination for the unlikely case that holytispon lets me keep Quince.


#29

Injunction is one of the reason I play Hive. The other being you gain nothing from copying it, and not much from copying Stingers. But it has other weaknesses… Unfortunately, though it’s one of my favorite cards, it’s really hard to make it worthwhile. Very expensive. Injunction however… An extremely good card. And very cheap.

I have to kill both heros, and trading Geiger after he maxes is worth it for that. I can’t let him do any Mind Control or Community Service on my Hives which have no minds anyway and can’t do any good for any community. I trade Geiger, level Vir and get him ready to play cards from the deck to avoid the stupid jail, while also keeping a board presence. He’s left with the insurance Agent (which I don’t want to kill, it’ll only cycle him to come out and do his dirty deed again) and the newsman (the blocking bothers me but I can probably deal with it in the future). To cast spells he’ll have to play Onimaru and I’m not sure what other than insurance agents he has from tech 2 - he definitely doesn’t have any flying units, and I think Vir is safe.


#30

Big turn! Just one thing, playing Vir requires tech 2, and yours is disabled.


#31

It would still work if he waited until Geiger died to summon Vir, but he shouldn’t get the free levels.


#32

Yeah, Vir comes after the trade and gets no levels. I’ll edit.

Things are looking pretty bleak…
I’ll play Aven just to slow Stingers down. Can’t even put insurance on the damn thing. Still going to play another Insurance Agent, since he basically pays for himself.
I don’t want to play Oni, on the off chance that I’ll have any guys left to cast Elite Training on. Building tech 3 mostly because I don’t have anything else to do with the gold, as I’m pretty sure it won’t survive. Very much hoping to draw Judgment Day, though at this point I’m not sure it will be enough.
I definitely made some teching blunders this game, but I’ll see it through.

THis was a tricky turn… I had a long flight to think about it and I’m still not sure I did the right thing. Let’s see how it goes.

holytispon was clever not to give me any cards on his turn. Still, I’m pretty happy with how things turned out: the tech 3 turned out to be a good decoy, and tower made up for my investment - without it, holytispon would probably be getting his own tech 3.
Most importantly, I can get my own cards thanks to Insurance Agent! Just need to suicide him into Prynn, which I would’ve done anyway to give Bigby levels and remove one of two troublesome heroes.
If I draw Lawful Search before Judgment Day, I’ll be better informed about following up with Brave Knight or Injunction (as long as I remember to actually look at his hand…). If not, I’ll have to make an educated guess.

Got Lawful Search! His hand is two scary tech 2 units, and two spells that won’t do much for him with Prynn gone and tech 2 disabled. So Injunction is definitely the way to go. Of course he’ll also get a technician draw, and with Vir in play he always has (at least) one more card to play, but there’s not much I can do about that.
I’m patrolling Bigby in scav rather than technician because I want the option to make big hero plays, and not just rely on my fat deck. holytispon could kill him with Nullcraft and maxband Vir, but it’ll cost him.

@holytispon Since tech 2 is disabled, you’ll have to wait a turn to build tech 3.

ARghg that card is a nightmare. It is the case that I have fewer options then. I’ll redo.

The Injunction + Judgment Day combo was fantastic. Excellent control lockdown. Not sure what else I can do this game. Sorry for the mistakes, been traveling and always had this issue while playing on the forums.

Thanks, I was definitely glad (and quite lucky) to pull that combo off. To be honest, it wasn’t my original plan for dealing with Hive, but my original plan didn’t work.

And don’t worry about the mistakes. It happens to me often enough both on the forums and IRL.

Thoughts

My original plan was to bring in maxband Quince, play a Brave Knight and worker up, but then I thought why not draw a card to thin my deck. And now I have a Lawbringer on board.
To be honest, I’m not sure it’s that much better a position.
