Thieving Imp costs 3 gold, so you need to either play a different card from your hand or not summon Vandy.

Thoughts

I figure my best way of dealing with skeletons will be to get cheap units of my own and use Ferocity to guarantee skeletons can’t trade or suicide. If he keeps using them, Growth or Feral would work well so I can overpower through them, and Growth would also work well if he start focusing on -1/-1 runes… We’ll see, I guess.

Thoughts

Unless he can find a way to get rid of Tiny Basilisk, I can just say “screw your skeletons, I have unstoppable deathtouch!” Not only that, but with it in Technician I’ll gain a card if he does use Sacrifice the Weak or something on it. We’ll see what he does, and decide which spec to go with then!


#11

Shambler can only put runes on units. Let me know when you update your turn


#12

Thanks for catching that! It’s fixed.

Hated to get rid of my +1/+1 Tiny Basilisk, but I need to reduce his board presence. If I can get either of my Tech II units out next turn, that’ll help a lot. He’s almost guaranteed to wipe my board, but at least he has to give me a card to do so![/spoiler][/details]

I’m pretty sure I’m a dead player walking, but I’m kind of curious how he’ll destroy me. I know from my last match against Black that Disease Tech II is pretty devastating…

I doubt I can win at this point, especially since my hand is not so great, so I’m calling it here. Good game, @PointyFinger! Black is pretty scary… I don’t have a clue how to deal with all its shenanigans. Then again, I still have trouble with Red vs Green, so I’m sure it’s mostly just inexperience.

@EricF, we’re done here.


#19

I think had you not lost Calamandra the game would look pretty different. That window was just too huge.


#20

Yeah, that’s what really decided it. In hindsight, what would you have done that turn if I’d swapped her and Tiny Basilisk?
