Not wild about going down to 3 cards here for the stealth Rook kill. But at least:

  • I’m only 1 card down relatively (he’s on 4)
  • multicolour penalty for his starter spells while Rook is out (eg can’t SnapBack this turn without skipping worker)
  • Prospector tap means I can afford Tech 1 and Tiger next turn
  • my alternatives didn’t look great with the risk of midband Rook walkby

Tapping Cal for a Predator Tiger, start building the hand size back. He could kill the Tiger with Grappling Hook; Aged Sensei buffs max Geiger; flicker Sensei to patrol – but $2 cost Hook (multicolour penalty + Cal’s mid) makes this less appealing and 1HP Geiger would be vulnerable (eg to Nether Drain) just when most useful to flicker Hyperions etc. Thinking Barkcoat Bears could be my best counter to Present Tech 2 if that’s the direction he goes (outstat Hyperions, resist Tricycloid runes).

Teching useful spells for later (Surprise Attack, Nether Drain).

DeGrey may be a good choice later against necromancy and feral, but he can’t afford a boosted murkwood allies next turn so I think i’ll go with plan A

Teching in a Barkcoat Bear and Feral Strike. Pretty unlikely I’ll be able to Feral Strike, would need to keep Cal alive from attacks and Snapback and have my Tech 2 avoid Injunction, but seems a strong enough effect to be worth the punt. Garth’s max will be good to play around Injunction, pull in a Centaur or Bear depending on which Tech building is intact.

Snapback combos well with Tricycloid, he can kill the switched hero with runes for free levels.

Was in two minds whether I should have gone Tech 2 Anarchy instead of Feral. Bears seem a better answer to Present Tech 2 units than anything in Anarchy, but I’m not sure where the win condition will come from. Guess I can always Tech Lab for Gunships if I get ahead.

Kind of want Judgement Day but its still a bit early. I’m thinking Injunction can help me get a good combat trick in there, plus could help hold him off t3 if it comes to that.

Seeing Immortal played rather than Hyperion/Tricycloid does make me wish I’d chosen Anarchy rather than Feral. Steam Tank to block and great with Behind the Ferns, Monkeys for stealth. Ah well, first time playing this deck, we learn.

Using Zane’s max to move Immortal from SQL so I can clear up his small units. Next turn I may be able to Feral Strike or build Tech 3, though Injunction would stop both of those. Surprise Attack is coming up in the deck, could be a good use of a turn with Tech 2 down.

Teching 2 x Gunships. Using spare $1 to build Tech Lab Anarchy early, in case I get to play Feral Strike and Anarchy units turn out better, or to encourage him to spend on a Tower.

How did you play Nether Drain without Garth?


#13

was about to ask the same thing lol.


#14

Oops !

Think I can achieve the same outcome legally with:

Get Paid - ($8)
Zane to max, shoves Immortal to lookout, deals 1dmg - ($1)
Bone Collector kills Aged Sensei, I gain Skeleton, you draw
Zane kills Scribe, we both gain $1 - ($2)
Tech Lab Anarchy - ($1)

Discard 3, draw 5

Let me know if that’s OK to go


#15

Seems fine to me as long as you fix your draws and what not


#16

No change to the draws, as I’m getting the 6 remaining cards in my deck in either case (incl. tech draw from Tiger).

I’ve options to build Tech 3 or play boosted Feral Strike (eg two big Feral units like Rampaging Elephants or Gigadons, or one big unit + Chameleon Lizzo to take out Geiger). On balance prefer to build Tech 3 while I can, as Injunction next turn would stop me using the summoned units and stop me building Tech 3.

I’m up to 6 cards with the technician draw, so able to discard 2 to give Cal stealth to KO his Tech 2 for a turn (avoid a second Immortal, or flickered Hyperion). He can break through to my Tech buildings with Injuction or Ready or Not, but he’ll still have an ongoing problem to break my Tech 3 each turn as well as get rid of max Cal before a Tech 2 or Tech 3 Feral Strike.

Teching 2 x Lich’s Bargains for cheap blockers.

well day late dollar short on my injunction. wump. I’m pretty much guaranteed to be able to play Judgement Day next turn, assuming he doesnt pull some haste out of his ass.

Injunction can’t hit Tech 3.

oh yeah, because pirate ship wasnt easy enough already. I don’t understand how “haste” and “obliterate” are on the same card for 6 gold, never mind the fact that it has flying, resist, long range.

Fixed turn, draws didnt change.
