Really hard to know what to tech since I haven’t seen anything yet that really gives away what you might be trying to do.

Thoughts

So I feel like I am at least being able to see the game develop in the way that I need to be able to play strategically. If he is going to stick with skeletons I would have teched an Abomb and a Plague Lab or something, but he could have been teching anything, since all he’s done is Garth stuff and save money. It scares me that he’ll have enough of a bank and get to tech 3 and crush me if I don’t pressure him enough, and my next turn won’t be as offensive as I would like it to be. Hopefully he won’t pop his tech 2 stuff down and crush me before I do mine in two turns. If he does then it is probably game.

I really like Mono Black’s opening. Not something I was smart enough to consider when I put these three specs together but seeing it work in some other matches and playing against it has been good learning.

Note: It costs Geiger 1 extra gold to cast a black spell, so Deteriorate takes your last gold.

I know I really needed to kill Garth before he maxed but I just had nothing to do it with. Here is my attempt to not fall farther behind.

Good turn. I knew overpower would screw me but you worked that pretty well.

I had Temporal Distortion in my hand, if Geiger survived I could have done some shenanigans to at least keep it close. But you still would have had your heroes. Good game.

@EricF Anemone won.
