Leontes vs. mysticjuicer
Face up strat is strong. @mysticjuicer had some trouble selecting his first character.
Leontes wins 3-1
(referring to devilbot of course)
First game was close with a couple hero plays. He got some attached aces but I was able to survive them, and at the end when his hand was finally tapped out he threw out a J (I was at 25 health) and my AA undercut it. No FA.
Second game; Onimaru 100% attack vs. Midori 100% attack range. This is usually a thing you can do, but it can backfire spectacularly if Midori draws right. So even though this was a perfect, it wasn’t misplaying from mysticjuicer by any means, nor was it godlike reads on my part. Just a thing that happens specifically in this matchup sometimes. At the end i went DF and dodged into… Wrath of Earth. Attacks only, ok?
Third game, I did my best to stave off his range attempts, but I wasted too many face cards in the early game. Was able to throw him the first two turns, and then wanted to keep throwing until he poked me but my deck ran out. I should have just blocked, but I played face cards instead. Huge mistake. Getting to the end though, I was at 10 HP to his known Piston Hurricane in hand, and I had 4 Aces to his 39 health. In my heart I wanted to double AA so badly. The first one caught a throw, and then second one I convinced myself he had a Joker so he would play the PH; therefore I chickened out of my second AA. He threw again! HERO
Fourth game I got off to a good start, landing some early game AA. I went DF and he immediately Robo Headbutt me and went into a Throw to remove it. I start applying pressure and put him low with a big dJ78 combo. At 3 cards I start trying to dodge, but my health was high enough to justify going for a 5 poke to stuff K or 6 attack and go even with Block. Comboed into a 6 for the win.
Not sure how I did so well at range. I was out within a few turns each time and only had to block one Junkshot. One tip I have is that it’s really important for BBB to Dodge against Midori while in range. It sounds stupid, but it prevents me from just poking out your K, FORCES me to use a Dragon card for zero damage, evades Gold Burst/AA rangebreak. It’s really strong! Thelo adapted to this and I haven’t beaten him in Midori vs. BBB since.
ggs juicer! Always a pleasure fighting you, gl with the rest of the season.
