His deck looks like the “charge Might of Leaf and Claw as fast as possible” variety, I’ll probably be forced to tech Versatile Style around turn 3 or 4. I think I’ll go tower next turn, I’m expecting Bird’s Nest, so maybe I’ll grab Boulder + Mythmaking? Play for Strength tech 2? Idk we’ll see

Think Strength will be my likely plan here, solid against Ninjutsu or Discipline, and the green buffs should work for me in a Strength mirror. For this turn, Aged Sensei too versatile not to trade given I’ve the chance.

I want a fast first cycle and to see what he’s up to, so MMastery + Boulder it is. Didn’t expect him to trade off the Sensei, so instead of Tower I’ll grab Fox Primus. If he is going birds, that’ll really mess with the plan, and I’m not super fearful of any other plans (right?)

Think it’s worth going down on cards to get both my Tech1s out. Birds will be a real nuisance, and at worst slow him down to build a Tower. Next turn I can build a Tower + Tech2 to start getting back on cards. Still vulnerable to a Rook kill and Grave level-up if he has Reversal in hand (Grappling Hook + Reversal would be particularly bad).

This feels like the right “value” play, so I’m going for it despite it not exactly helping with the pesky birds. Next turn I’ll likely tower + tech 2, probably for strength, but I suppose if I see an opening to exert further pressure by cycling with Martial Mastery, I may do it. I’m not committing to Versatile Style just yet, as I’m not likely to use it next cycle and it is a waste of a card otherwise
[/details]


#8

Nice combo and use of the sparkshot. I’d thought last turn of building a tower instead of bringing out the birds, looks like that would have been the wiser choice. White has such good combat tricks!

Tower would kill birds, in case that changes your thoughts

Well I guess if I get an opening to Max out Sets, even if it means skipping a worker, I’ll do that and try to apply heavy pressure… Hoping it doesn’t backfire!

Patrolling to maximize my returns and keep Sets safe in case he decides to Zane max and shove the Boulder / Charge a Bird for a Grave kill. I can’t prevent a Charged Mirror’d bird killing Sets, but that would be a heavy investment from him (Rook + Zane + Birds + Mirror + Charge + Sets tax = 11g?) so I could probably handle it…

Going Tech 3 + Tech Lab Anarchy + tech in 2xPirate Gunships only works if he doesn’t draw FDS next turn (32% chance, assuming he teched in 2 of these last turn) and I do draw one of the Gunships (68%), combined probability 22%. So I’m better forgetting Gunships, and trying for Strength Tech 3 instead, as I can also build a tower for some protection against FDS.

Just to clarify, are you building a tower and erasing your tech lab, or floating 4g, or something else?
