I can get the keep the tech 2 down, and set up to kill it again next turn with Fairie Dragon and Haunt.
My Graveyard got taken out, but I still think I can get some good use out of an Anarchy tech lab. Stealthy hasted flying Mimics with sparkshot, anyone?

Well, there goes my tech 2 lockdown. I expect to be facing a boardful of fading dudes next turn, so I’ll drop down some answers in advance. I’m playing Vandy for the option to fetch Dark Pact next turn, and keeping Midori on the sidelines for a clutch CoL.
Potent B should survive anything I can think of, and Tiny B goes in back to protect from Reversal.

Thoughts

That’s a lot of stats Shadow just brought in, but I still have a lot of options. If nothing else, I could clear the patrol zone with ok trades + StW, and still afford to break his tech 2 and… build my own tech 3? That would only be a bluff at this point. But it does set me up for Meta with Midori, likely with Monkey and Mimic around to sneak in More Mayhem.
The alternative is fetching DP, and hoping I get one of Monkey and Mimic right now (at 60%), to let me break through the patrol and get the tech 2. Best cast scenario is Fairie Dragon + Mimic, which together would absolutely wreck the patrol. Yeah, let’s go for it!
And since that speeds up my cycle, I’ll tech Gunships just in case I can afford to tech up.

Got the Monkey! Graveyard is also nice, but I don’t want it overloaded so I need to be careful about what I allow in there.
I guess a Reversal could screw with me here? I don’t think Shadow can prevent both a Meta play and a Monkey+Mimic(+Fairie Dragon) play.


#50

What do you doom on my field?

Yes I did (not used to having a surplus and a week does that! Thanks for pointing it out, and no changes except I draw 1/discard 1 more


#51

With Seer dead, there’s no tech 0 or 1 unit left to doom.


#52

I’m pretty sure this is gg, but Ill give ti a shot at defending, I should have saved my gold rather then built a surplus, a tech 3 last turn would have been nice.

I think your base should be at 12? It was at 16 on your T7, and since then I broke tech 2 and you broke surplus.


#54

correct, sorry, its been a long week. fixed now


#55

Totally understandable, and I wouldn’t have dwelt on it if it hadn’t kept me 1 damage short of lethal…

GG! I can’t seem to get this codex to work, so Im gonna switch to [Past] Peace Anarchy, as I meant to get around to playing it at some point.


#57

I just got soundly beat facing a Peace engine with this codex, so I’m expecting a challenge. Your turn to go as P1, right?

btw, I was curious about your decision early in this game to change from boosting Hoodie to FF: was it just to keep your Nullcraft alive?


#58

No, it was more that I wanted to kill the Graveyard and Vandy (and also to test my theory that FF is still bad against tiny basilisks, it is). With only boosting I needed to kill the Haunt otherwise the Executioner only kills that, not the most value.

Tiny B’s kind of lose their value against Cadets, so I may have to play this one differently. More generally, I’m not sure the Balance plan is fast enough against Peace engine, maybe rushing to Gunships is better? Though Potent B is nice to have against Battlesuits… we’ll see.
