My thoughts

Option 1: don’t attack. Worst case, Tiny Basilisk snipes a Bone Collector and Treant trades with the other or a skeleton.

Option 2: Bone Collectors kill Treant and generate skeletons. Worst case, Arg kills 1 skeleton and Tiny Basilisk snipes a Bone Collector. This seems to clearly dominate Option 2

Option 3: Wipe his patrol zone (after deteriorating Basilisk), leaving me with 3/1 BC, 1 skeleton, and an injured Garth

If I draw MoLaC (72% chance if I tech the 2nd and draw 5), then Option 2 is better. If I don’t, then option 3 trades 2 skeletons and some BC/Garth damage for his Arg and Basilisk. Call that 3 gold worth of value for me against 3 gold and a card for him (5 gold and 2 cards if you include forest’s favor). That’s reasonably advantageous. On the other hand, killing Arg means that he can potentially bring out Midori and Momen’ts Peace me, which will neuter my gameplan. Let’s go for Option 2.

Now that I do that, do I float 3 or build a Tower? I think float. Tower will force him to trade Basilisk to get Arg instead of it surviving, but that’s it. I could do the same thing by midbanding Garth. Doesn’t seem worthwhile. I’d rather keep the gold and threaten something like MoLaC + Midband Drakk.

My thoughts

Intentionally not activating MoLaC this turn. The 2 things in his deck that can counter me right now are Nature Reclaims and Moment’s Peace. The only way he can get rid of Arg and play Midori is if I activate MoLaC, so I don’t want to yet.
