GL HF @Mooseknuckles! I’m interested to see how this Balance swap plays out first-hand, I saw one of the hasty mimic shenanigans you burned somebody with and I am not looking forward to dealing with that!

I think I want birds to stop Nullcraft, I may do Boulder to combo with it. I can’t cede too much early pressure though, as he can get a mean Peace machine going about as well as PPA. I wish I was as good as EricF at seeing the long game and planning a deck composition around it…

[details=My Thoughts][spoiler]
I’m going to play a strong hunch here that he went for Boot Camp. If he went for Stewardess instead, I’ve spent my gold pretty poorly. This also isn’t great trading against Battle Suits or Nullcraft, though I’ve teched Birds to deal with a Nullcraft, and Rambasa Twins to trade okay against Suited up dudes. Birds and Rambasa also give me enough counter pressure to hopefully keep him away from tech 2.

Although it doesn’t matter what I tech IF I DONT FKING DRAW IT sigh I feel like that’s the third time this tourney I’ve whiffed my turn 3 hand on teched cards, I need a new spreadsheet that randoms my cards more favorably…

OMG Still wiffed even with the technician! So Sad!

Ninjutsu is great against peace, less great against Balance (which he’ll probably go for) but we’ll see if we can’t put the beat-down on him while he tries to get to tech 2! This is a tough spot to be in…

It’s unfortunate that he has enough gold to summon + max out Prynn to sweep GN, so I think I have to go Twins over Birds… Luckily he went peace tech 2 though! That’s really good for my tech 2 choice, more ninjas come and we’ll look to tech probably Jade Fox and Oathkeeper final round, tech up next turn!

Look at that, tech up next turn AND get his tech 2 down in what is probably a pretty critical moment! I’m guessing he teched Garrisons, whiffed drawing them, and will be holding both now. Let’s see if I can now win with my one pretty good and one sort-of okay tech 3s!

Prynn is pretty good at stopping an unhasted base race, I think I’ll lose here but I guess we’ll see! He has 12 damage on the ground, Sarges could get it close to 20 potentially. Greedy play on my part to try the tech 3 rush, Jade Fox should really cost a LOT less she is really quite weak being targetable and only a 4/6, and what is granting swift strike really accomplishing? Readiness would be a lot more on-par with other tech 3s, and it’s not as if Ninjutsu tech 2 is so OP that she couldn’t have been a little bit better…

Agreed this game is super weird, mostly my fault for doing this weird tech 3 thing… that was not the turn I expected from you, Moment’s Peace was an excellent choice

I’m going to go ahead and concede, as I see no path to victory

@EricF mark me down for another L, and find a way to time travel to buff Jade Fox plz XD or just teach me how to play the game better


#18

imo except strenght, TIII white units are crap.


#19

Not being able to patrol is a huge downside for a Tech III that doesn’t have Haste.


#20

yeah, i mean fox jade is great only if u have flooded the board with ninjas, so u do not have arrival sickness, to kill everything with a swoop. Imo daigo is terribad, like irredeemable :open_mouth:
