My plan is to beatdown with Vandy, Gargoyles, and Twilight Barons as I build up to Zarramonde.

It’s easy to forget how bloody annoying that Imp is.

Could have gone with Sensei’s Advice-Sensei kills the Imp, but I honestly would prefer the Imp stay alive so he can’t get cast again. Save a card, power up Rook, Sensei is going to die but he did his job.

Somehow I doubt he has teched Rook spells. Time for a beatdown!

I realized after the fact that Rook should have taken 4 damage total last turn (because of Elite), but nothing really changed after he healed.

Rough not getting any Tech 1 cards, and that Baron is bad news. Taking out the Javelineer so he can’t Long Range me later. Assuming nothing changes right now, he can’t kill Rook, but I can’t really make any changes to prevent it.

Not sure how I’ll come back from this. I’ll lose at least one of the heroes this turn, but that opens up space for Rook and the Birds.

If Snapback, maintain dominant position as best as possible.

@MindstabThrull just checking in

I surrender. No units to play, and I can’t even take out your Baron right now. Good game! Not getting either tech draw on Turn 3 put me too far behind.

Rematch?

I made Garth killing extremely expensive but not impossible. I hope he can’t/won’t. He hasn’t made a Rook kill impossible as long as Garth lives.
