I climbed the Spire, ever higher, dagger in hand, ascending the floors.
The Nameless One then struck me down; my eyes snapped shut like closing doors.
They open again, a familiar face. Eternally, I question why.
His maw unfolds with putrid breath, again he asks…
The Silent (Leontes) vs. Crassus (@SouthpawHare)
Leontes wins, 4-2.
“I climb, I die, I climb again.”
The last three games SPH was completely in the driver’s seat. Solidly beaten in game 4, game 5 I went for a Maximum Anarchy gamble that didn’t pay off (he had to play exactly 1 of his last two remaining Ks to get hit by it realistically), and then I was dropped to 1 HP VERY QUICKLY by a couple high-powered Pilebunker combos that fortunately left his hand at 1 card.
I powered up my entire hand to threaten Anarchy, and landed a Throw into his Dodge; 9 and J put him down to 44. With knocked down and at 2 cards, I just played faceup Anarchy and prayed for the checkmate. It was.
I think if I wasn’t already up 3-0 when came out, this would have been a lot different.
Excellent play SPH. Good luck in 19XX!
