Kinda interested in the gameplan of APS. Guessing it revolves around Tech IIs and haste, with Zane as an aggressive component. In my position, though, I think I’ve got full rein to go hyper-aggro and with with Meta. Origin Story is an expensive answer to Vandy.

So far, so good. Considered Graveyard for deck thinning, but I don’t think I have enough advantage on board for that. Instead, Thieving Imp puts me on the front foot as I build up a board presence. How does Vandy die here? Midband Zane (4 gold) plus Mad Man (5 gold) plus 1 to target MM in Lookout. Seems like a fine trade.

Think I’ve got a pretty clean turn here. Deteriorate -> Thieving Imp and Vandy kill Rook, I can play Gargoyle and actually have enough to tech 2. I almost want to just Terras Q and Discord and go for the glory. That’s really vulnerable to Undo and Chaos Mirror, though, so maybe not.

Wow, Vandy doom on Gargoyle is a dirty trick. Far as I can tell, Gargoyle returns to being indestructible right before the doom hits.

Deteriorate is give a unit -1/-1, not hero

Trying this one more time. I can kill Rook if I midband Vandy, but that isn’t great, since early maxband Vandy. Unless I meta. I could actually meta. I think I’m gonna try to moonshot that.

So I could meta here for the 6/7 invisible Vandy and then Dark Pact to fetch two cards. Doesn’t leave me with much to play, though. Let’s try just Meta, kill Zane, Deteriorate the Mad Man, fingers crossed nothing gets played. I could skip a worker and PBR, that seems fine. Orrrrrr I could worker now, give up a bit of tempo, then be solidly ahead in deck thinning.

Ouch. Obvious start here is DP, and Vandy trade plus Vandy exhaust into Shadow Blade kills the patroller for 4 gold total. Let’s see what we get after that.

Pretty bad stuff so far. No chance my Tech 2 stays up, but maybe I can keep stalling enough.
