When the [Codex] hits just right


#61

black/green ended up winning but either way it was a great moment.


#62

That feel when you deal 18 damage to your opponent’s base in a single turn. :nauticaldog: :ok_hand:

  • Clear patrol zone with shenanigans
  • Attack with Geiger and Tricycloid to deal 5
  • Use Geiger maxband to flicker Tricycloid
  • Use Now! to give it haste, attack base and then fire on the base 3 times, dealing 9
  • Use Temporal Distortion to replace it with Hyperion deal 4

Using Quince mirrors to copy your opponent’s Warp Gate Disciple to summon your own Warp Gate Disciples because you went Discipline this game :nauticaldog: :ok_hand:

I mean, I lost, but that game got downright weird.


#64

Isn’t that line missing a point of damage? Shouldn’t you have attacked with tricycloid, then max banded Geiger, then attacked with Geiger?


#65

Possibly. I still had money left over after doing all that, and his base was at 18, so I didn’t need to be any more efficient than I already was.


#66

Doing one more damage than necessary isn’t hitting :ok_hand: just right :ok_hand:


#67

Due to a combination of weird draws and relying a bit too much on teching Warp Gate Disciple shenanigans, last night while playing Purple I actually managed to get an Octavian on the board with my Hardened Mox still alive (because Hardened Mox explicitly says it’s trashed when a Tech II unit is on the board, with no mention of Tech III).

Then @Jeremetroid immediately used Entangling Vines and Mind-Parry Monk to effectively neutralize Octavian :frowning:


#68

sounds more like a red herring tale.


#69

When your opponent summons an Octavian on turn 6 but you’ve got a Mind Parry Monk and Entagling vines combo in your hand to lock that 8 tentacled monstrosity down :ok_hand:


#70

Warp Gate Disciple was intended for Now! and Ready or Not shenanigans that never manifested. Instead I got wrecked to the point where I had a WGD actually patrolling. It was pretty grim.


#71

Now I have this wonderful image of the Mind Parry Monk standing there with eight beams of psycho-kinetic focus shining from his forehead, holding back all of Octavian’s tentacles, with a satisfied grin on his face. Octavian, deep in his cephalopod brain, thinking “That one. I eat that one first.”

Last week, while playing with @Jeremetroid, I decided to go Feral against his Monowhite. I figured that he’d tech in Entangling Vines, expecting a Gigadon, so I decided to pull a Nature Reclaims, just in case. The trap was set, and the catch was sprung, as he Entangling Vines-ed my Gigadon the turn after I played it. No need to worry — I had Nature Reclaims in hand, allowing me to trash Entangling Vines* and get some value out of Gigadon the next turn. Awesome!

Then he played his other Entangling Vines on my Gigadon.

*Apparently, vines + vines = no vines. Maybe one of them is actually made of antivines.


#73

If you were attacking with gigadon, he couldnt possibly vine it since that card only works against patrollers. Very neat use of nature reclaim


#74

[gasps audibly]


#75

Oh deary me…


#76

I missed the part where the 2 vines were played against the same unit in the same turn :upside_down:.
What an evil guy that rook is
:laughing:
.


#77

Naw, he actually played Entangling Vines two turns in a row, but we both failed to realize that it’s limited to patrollers on the second turn. : O


#78

Time for a rematch I guess.


#79

Got maxband Drakk and somehow he lives through the opponent’s turn. Good good. Awesome! Land Octopus! Time to get some serious value with Haste and Frenzy — looks like it’s time to clear out that patrol zone.

Awesome! Drew another Land Octopus the following turn! Great! And Drakk’s still around because I wiped the other side clean last turn. Time to take out two heroes in one hit, taking only 1 damage from Arg!

Woohoo Octopus!!!
