Would’ve liked to draw one of the 3-cost starters against red starter but didn’t happen… Vandy will survive at least and only 2 to midband so might be able to go on offensive next turn.

Good luck, have fun!

Really wanted to build t1 which didn’t leave many options on what to do this turn, this leaves me very vulnerable, if he has the makeshift ram that would be bad, but there are options for my next turn if i don’t keep t1, wondering if I should therefore just not build t1 this turn.

One turn away from a hire rook, metamorphosis… big risk that he can hire enough attack to kill Vandy, i wouldnt necessarily lose but itd be tough to recover after that

I think this is a solid defense for now. Shadow Blade is the easiest attack, so I’m putting Bombaster in Lookout.

Tower is annoying, guess OffKilter saw this coming… There are two ways he can kills Vandy like this, with her patrolling it becomes 4. Went for the kill on Bombaster anyway though as it means unless he hires and hastes units (or hire lobbers) he won’t even lower him to one health and he’ll be able to attack next turn without being sniped by the tower

Your turn, @OffKilter !

I think that’s GG.
Well played!

@FrozenStorm remember always to ping the TO

Really? With your tower you’d get at least one turn before i can start doing real damage, but if you want to end it sure, i won’t look at your techs etc until u’ve seen this.

P2T5

I wasn’t exactly preparing for a 8/8 unstoppable Rook. I guess I can try to stop him?

Wow, I didn’t even look at metamorphosis. Now I have tools to deal with units but only huge heroes to deal with.

Yh maybe I was being optimistic for you, if you’d drawn a good t2 that turn you’d have had a decent chance but from here I’m more confident, ofc you had thought of that already!

I don’t know if hitting tower this turn is the right play or is I should have gone for the t2, either way next turn I should get to play some decent cards

vandy didn’t get damage from tower, she was invisible

Ooh…
Noob mistake. Game is hard.

If I’m allowed to fix it, I would have done the same trick with Argagarg boosting, but trade the Mad Man instead of the Wisp.

@dwarddd’s turn!

Oh, and I used Random.org to determine if I would have drawn Mad Man on the redraw.

Also, correct me if I’m wrong, but it looks like we’re in Group B but we’re playing the decks from Group A. Were we supposed to be playing [Discipline]/Necromancy/Law vs [Discipline]/Strength/Finesse?

Each group uses the decks submitted by the other group, because that strategy avoids a number of complicating factors.

I’m afraid you can’t do that either. Vandy is completely invisible and you have nothing on board to detect her.
