Where does it put the cards I teched? I type them in after I Discard/Draw correct? I tried generating the template again but it didn’t change.

#3

You don’t need to decide what you tech until the start of your next turn (you can react to what the opponent does), so the template will list your tech choices at the top of Turn 2.


#4

I’m confused… It says you’re Mono White in the topic title, but you just played Thieving Imp. Which is it?


#5

Jude’s other deck is [Disease]/Present/Growth, probably just got confused about which deck was in which match.

Yep wrong game. Here is my White one:

@Hobusu Do you want me to tag you when I finish my turns? Not sure if that is more or less annoying than just checking back every so often.


#7

I’m already watching this thread, so it’s OK if you don’t. I won’t be able to take my turn for a bit (playing a game IRL with a friend who’s usually busy), but I’ll get it up as soon as I can.


#8

That’s okay, I’ll mostly be around in the afternoon evenings. Mornings will be hit or miss.


#9

Hey, @Jude! It’s finally your turn! :wink:
I should have asked when you did: Do you want me tagging you after my turns?

[details=Summary][spoiler]I’ll try to keep these concise for RACE (good luck with that, me).

Rook + Safe Attacking == Bird’s Nest, so I need to kill Rook ASAP. Ideally the turn before he plays nest, but there’s no way of knowing if that’s turn 3 or 4… So I’ll see how well he defends against Ogre.

Workered Careless Musketeer because I have little use for a 2/1 that can hurt me this game.[/spoiler][/details]


#10

You don’t need to tag me. I might do some crazy stuff since this is only my second real game so feel free to give me pointers if I do anything too crazy.

Don’t worry about inexperience! I’ve played several games now and I still feel like I don’t know what I’m doing half the time… :sweat_smile:

I’ll let you know if anything seems obviously bad/wrong, but I’d prefer to give you what advice I can after the match if that’s OK. Of course, you can feel free to look at the new player reference sheets I’ve made – they should be linked in the important resources thread.

(One thing I should mention that’s relevant this turn is the importance of protecting your heroes when Drakk is around…)

[details=Thoughts][spoiler]Mission accomplished! The birds will not be making an appearance this turn, and I’ve got max level Drakk to keep him down. The question is whether I can keep this going… We’ll see if he can/will use Snapback soon.

Teched Lobber and Bloodlust as a compromise with the reference sheet’s build order. I’m not going to wait that long for Tech II if I can help it, so I’d rather get such a versatile spell in while I can.

Workered Scorch because my strategy is about hasty units rather than spell damage, and it’s too gold hungry for its effect.[/spoiler][/details]

Hey @Jude (don’t make it baad ^_^), in order to cast snapback you need a hero in play, so you’re turn will need to change slightly to summon a hero first and not summon smoker, or not use snapback

Sorry for the Beatles reference I’m sure you get too often :wink:


#14

If you wouldn’t have been so mean and killed my hero I would have been able to cast it still. I edited my turn and put in Grave instead of smoker.

People sang to me a lot when I was younger but not so much any more. I’m also tall so people asked me if I played basketball all the time as well.


#15

I’m conflicted… On the one hand, I’m glad you caught that so there’s no cheating. On the other hand, I wish Smoker could have been there instead of Grave… That would have been much easier to deal with. :sweat_smile:

I already made that same reference (more subtly than you, I might add), so if anyone should be apologizing… Well, maybe it’s both of us, actually! :wink:

@Jude, I’ve figured out my turn, but I might not be able to post it for a little while longer.


#16

If you had Smoker there instead of Grave, this would have turned out pretty different…

[details=Thoughts][spoiler]As much as I don’t want to, I have to wait a turn before attacking. Sure, I could have killed Grave, but I’d have gone down a card to do so, and not had that much to show for it. Even though I probably won’t get any Tech II units until the turn after next, it’ll still give me two heroes max, and that means Drakk can return regardless of whether Jaina is out.

Teched Bamstamper Lizzo and Molting Firebird as probably the most immediately useful Tech II options. Lizzo for immediate damage, and Firebird for its combo potential with Charge/Bloodlust.

Workered Bloodburn because it’s too late to get use out of it, especially since I’ll be hungry for cards and gold for the rest of the game.[/spoiler][/details]

This is going to be my last post for tonight. I’ll take my next turn in the morning!


#17

I didn’t actually get rid of a card for the worker last time. So you might beat me with the Tech 2 advantage this game. We’ll see how it goes.

Really? Your list of actions had you pay for a worker that turn. If you didn’t actually hire a worker, you should have 1 more gold than you do now, I think.


#19

Yeah, I paid for one but didn’t actually discard the card.


#20

Does that change anything about your last turn? I’ve partly planned my turn assuming you just floated the 1 gold that the worker would have cost, but if that gold makes a difference, let me know.
