lets go standard present tech 2.

also, lmk if you have thoughts as we warm up green v purple. one part of these games is to provide feedback on mono color matchups, etc…

Well I haven’t really played much monoGreen, so I’m looking forward to learning it from the otherside of the table.

During our casual games you avoided playing several of the green starter cards: Rich Earth, Spore Shambler, Ironbark Treant. I’d be interested to hear your opnions of those cards in this match up.

Rich Earth - I guess green doesn’t have a tonne of tricks to quickly recover hand size, and finding room (and $) to play this early (when you get the most benefit) might be tough to justify. Plus Green has other ways of getting ahead on cash, (like Merfolk Prospector, Gemscout Owls and Galina) that can all contribute bodies to the board.

Spore Shambler - Seems like a decent T1-2 option to me? I might give it shot and see.

Ironbark Treant - I guess 2 health when attacking is pretty weak to most of purple’s card, especially at $3. Still strong early blocker.

@codexnewb’s turn!

For this matchup specifically, shambler and ironbark are susceptible to Stewardess of the Undone, and thus are usually not worth spending gold on early.

As for a rich earth, assimilate is a major deterrent to anyone looking to play upgrades, and it’s generally just kinda slow where green really wants to keep purple off tech 2

Ah, makes sense. Yeah, I often teched Stewardess in our casual games, but typically Calamandra’s midband applying resist 1 to units made actually playing it an expensive proposition.

yeah, agree with above. just given purple’s direct counters, there were some cards i avoided playing if i could.

When I saw the board clear, I thought that’d be game. But I’m surprised to see that Green has recovered reasonably well here…
