My Thoughts

I have an ongoing theory bourne out of Bob199s play in a big tournament game several years back, when the current PbF meta consensus was that Vandy was super OP, that forcing an early (like pre turn 3 like I’m trying here) takes a lot of her strength away. She excels because she can kill things efficiently and heal off any damage, and her maxband is scary as a critical building takedown tool and for Metamorphosis threat. But turn three is way too early to effectively use Metamorphosis, and taking away her ability to heal really reduces her ability to trade effectively. So I don’t foresee really needing Jaina or Zane next turn (especially if I tech for Drakk stuff like Bloodlust), and thus this feels like a great trade: 4g and no cards for 3g and TWO cards. Yes, I’m technically also GIVING 3g worth of levels to Vandy, but like I said before I don’t think that actually works out to an advantage for her, but rather a disadvantage. So let’s see how it goes!

Shouldn’t it buff bombaster?

It only triggers if it happens on Vandy’s owner’s turn. I’m not allowed to place the buffs on my own units or Vandy’s owners’

And to think I have been playing around you using vandy maxband against me. That’s good to know.

I will say you did not do anything that I expected with that turn lol

Okay, so I have a fair amount of dmg on the board, but he does have 6 cards. I don’t really have the right dmg to destroy tech 2, so he really would just need patrol with a hero and build it. I really want to try and wreck his hand going forward, that’s why the carrion curse pickup

I really can’t get tech 2 out this turn without leaving myself completely open. Next turn isn’t looking too promising for it either unless I don’t do much else. I have a fair bit on the board but he has money to do a number on me and tech up. Feeling the gold pinch hard right now

I’m not fond of this particular setup, but I also don’t think he has too terrible much he can do. Gotta get the tech 2 out and gotta save Orpal for next turn. Maybe I can drop his hand after all, but it’s not looking great for me right now

Oof, forgot my tech 2 was killable… Oh well, probably he’ll use Garg to take down Drakk here. Going down on cards to increase my odds I get a gunship turn after next!

OOOOF both gunships, bad luck brian…

@UrbanVelvet friendly reminder bump, if you’re busy no sweat at all!

Another friendly bump :slight_smile:

I’m really sorry, I’m going through this extremely rough patch in my job. I have been in a really bad state lately and it will probably be a little bit before i return to the forum. I do intend to return though. I’m really sorry

Sorry I haven’t checked in. My job went to shit and then I became unemployed and now I’ve been in the hospital cause of a severe tension pneumothorax. I miss this but I’m not sure yet when I will be able to come back regularly.

If people want to take my spot in match ups I think that’s the best for now. Hopefully I can get my life together and return soon, I just got too much happening at the moment.
