GL HF @zhavier !

I’ll be honest, blue always makes me nervous with all of their weird spells, haha.

One of the plays I’d like to try with this deck is a strong heroes hall / tech I rush down with Vandy and River, but blue does have a lot of ways to make spells / heroes hard to use, so we’ll see.

I dunno, if you ask Frozenstorm, this match is very much not in my favor, but I have to play blue more before I decide.

Hah, yeah, Arrest is pretty good. So, no Shadow Blade plays this turn. Also, last turn for some reason I forgot I’m technically playing a monocolor with Finesse, so I guess I -could- have built my Tech I last turn. Woops. Thankfully I don’t think it changes much.

#8

Vandy doesnt have haste?


#9

Wooops! That’s right I don’t know what I was thinking. Ill fix it in a bit


#10

Should be fixed. I didn’t touch card draw at all, should I leave cards and tech the same or should I redo that part too?


#11

Standard tournament rules are to redo the draw anytime a correction has to be made to a turn, but this is casual, we can carry on as is.


#12

On second thought, I just lawful searched your hand, and you appear to have two thieving imps.


#13

Haha dang, you’re right… It looks like I can’t go back in the spreadsheet history on mobile but ill redo tech/draw as soon as I’m at a computer. I appreciate your patience with this!


#14

Instead of going back in revision history, just put everything into your deck that is supposed to be there and draw 5 and post those 5 cards in a new post to let me know what they are.


#15

Alright, there we go. Post updated. Sorry about that

New hand:

[details=New Hand]Twilight Baron
Graveyard
Deteriorate
Shadow Blade
Dark Pact[/details]

I’m a little weirded out that I drew basically the same hand… I just put everything in the discard then hit draw 1 five times.


#16

You will need to fix your starting hand in your next post, but it won’t really affect anything else.

Hmm, I can see now what you mentioned in the beginning about the matchup. if this game is any indication, it seems like it’s really difficult for blue to generate tempo vs black in the starter deck. I wonder if P1 vs P2 changes that much.

Can’t deteriorate heroes.

Deteriorate can only target units.
