My thoughts

Building the Tower in anticipation of Metamorphosis, and also to make attacking my skeletons less attractive to set up a MoLaC. Would love Archery next turn to get some free long range damage in, but I missed the 80% chance to draw it :cry:

[details=P2, Turn 3]Summon Skeletons -> Worker

Dark Pact

Ok, no attacks, but he did build a Tower. Mandatory Vandy/Dark Pact this turn to draw for Deteriorate/Bargain.

I’ve got a total of 5 ATK plus possible Vandy Max and/or Garth level-up. Total defense is 5 // 3, 1.

Won’t have enough gold to max Vandy or build Tech II and still protect myself, and that tower is annoying, so just grab an Iron Man and a Soul Stone for my Horror.

Dark Pact Draws:
Skeletal Archery
Skeleton Javelineer

Harumph. Well, just keep turtling.

Skeletal Archery -> Worker

Super passive. I can’t break the Tech II this turn, but I should be able to clear everything else, and have a dominant position afterwards, so close enough.
Tech in 1 Metamorph in case an opening happens, and a Doom Grasp in case it doesn’t.

Bonus Draw: Soul Stone

My thoughts

This is almost certainly gg, but I’ll play it out for one more turn. Imp hit the 1/5 chance to make me discard Doom Grasp which was my one glimmer of hope.


#13

Horror trades with Horror
Zombie trades with zombie
Skeletons trade with skeletons
Activate gargoyle
Rest of my stuff hits your base for 4+3+3+1 = 11

Gg!


#14

GG! I made a passive play on T3 in order to set up some good trades with Skeletal Archery and prepare for MoLaC. Not sure if that was going to be a good play or not, but I missed the 80% chance to draw it so it ended up being a moot point.


#15

Yeah, I noticed you were being very passive. Sometimes the draw just doesn’t work out. Good luck in the final stretch.
