My Thoughts

I’m not totally sure what this deck’s plan is… Peace engine but with White spells? Why Past with no Battle Suits and White starter covering hero reversals via Snapback…? I guess we’ll muddle through and find out!


thanks for setting up this tournament @FrozenStorm.

hmmm, zane->smoker, then fargo. he can grappling hook / midband grave -> fargo if he wants i guess.

gg 5, worker 4, tech 1 2, mid grave 0, gh -> fargo. ----> not the best play since no patrol. zane can get the free trade.
gg 5, worker 4, tech1 2, (savior monk) 0 (sql) ----> i can gg 6, worker 5, tech 1 3, mid zane 0,

So i think ill go with battle suits instead of zane. i can get at smoker later with NC (preference anyways).

long game, i think peace engine is pretty simple. we’ll see who can execute it better. knowing frozenstorm, im definitely nervous (i think im using his championship codex from a few years back).

but i also have learned a lot the past two years. excited to see what happens!

My Thoughts

So Taz is telling me this is a TPoS focused deck?? I’m disappointed to hear that, TPoS as a win con is pretty tough to pull off. I don’t love that plan. That said, I was considering Stewardess anyway, so I think I’ll tech that and… MM seems useful to both Peace 2 and TPoS so I’ll go with that for now.

I’d rather have had Savior Monk here but oh well, Viper will have to do. Don’t want Nullcraft scoring his hero free levels, so SQL Viper and Grave elite, if he wants to Forgotten Fighter I’m fine with that trade.

Oof, whiffed…

hmmm i think SPTU is his best choice here. question, does it make sense to 1. bring out a hero? 2. attack with fargo?

  1. can’t patrol with hero, grappling hook is too easy for free levels. Also, don’t want to skip tech 1 to trade zane with grave.
  2. what if fargo and nullcraft kill viper/smoker, leaving grave out there to ping my tech 1 for free? NOPE, readiness on grave makes that a SUPER value move.

looks like im stuck trying to make SOTU more expensive for him. goal with cadets is to pair them with max zane, shove something to get a free draw. ideally board flood next turn while still allowing a reshuffle

My Thoughts

This is rough… I only have bad trades to make as an option against the Fargo, but letting it just fade out also feels bad as it likely means I’m cedeing tech 2 priority entirely.

It kinda feels like tower + monk is the way to go here, as lame duck as that is. I guess I’m playing to weather some storms and try to TPoS after all…

hmmm, he must have whiffed, but ill take it. it will probably come back to haunt me later when ti evens out.

do i max zane and go for the second cadet? 33% chance…

  1. max zane, tech draw second cadet
    play both cadets
    discard 2, draw 2, reshuffle, draw 2
    hand 4, deck 3, discard 0

  2. max zane, dont draw second cadet
    play one cadet
    discard 3, draw 2, reshuffle, draw 3
    hand 5, deck, 3, discard 0

TURN FOUR OPTIONS
gg 8, worker 7, tech two 3, (cadet/seer), trade zane into hero (ideal), summon Oni


darnit, didnt get it. oh well. lets just go with plan B then. leaves me with hand 5, deck 3 next turn.

assuming worst case, and he clears my board somehow, im looking at discard 3, draw 3, reshuffle, draw (2/7). IF I whiff garrisons turn 5, Vir can help me dig

put cadet in tech just in case he doesnt get grappling hook. im fine if he wants to mid grave, kill cadet, max grave, sword rune zane. he’ll be looking at a bloated deck for late game.

well, this should be interesting…never had a peace engine battle before.

his MM is a good synergy with Peace Engine. he’s got a better chance of drawing into garrisons than i do.

i should be good dropping cadet as the lone patroller in tech. REALLY NEED a garrison here. about to discard 3, draw 3, reshuffle, draw (2/6)

no point in a tech lab right now. but maybe next turn


nice! got one!

okay, well, my main advanage is nullcraft can break his tech 1 next turn. so he most likely will need grave to sword rune NC. i wont trade away zane to prevent grave from getting the free levels.

space out the three patrollers so sparkshot and smoker wont help him bust through more easily.

even another sotu won’t help since i get NC back to my hand. im thinking he’ll need prynn and rewind soon.

ill also build a tech lab anarchy to get at some disguised monkeys. go for the garrison stealth snipe (can’t count on zane surviving another turn)

Really feels like I should toss it in here… but I guess we’ll see!

GG WP, @myself looks like codexnewb and his purple peace anarchy taking down my white peace of storms

Upsetting that my Codex lost. Maybe after the event I should replace Past with Finesse for the additional win-con with Smoker/Drill Sergeants mentioned earlier (not to mention the Finesse package in general, depressingly short of 3-drops as it may be). Discord can still take care of tokens, after all, which was the main problem that I felt Past was a solution to.
