Not gonna hire a hero as the 50% chance of him having sacrifice the weak is too high. With it he could leave himself a max-band vandy against my wiped board… sure he wouldn’t build a t1 but still not good

edit: float a gold (overpaid for tech 1)

teching dark pact and nimble fencer. ideal next turn is gg 6, worker 5, HH 3, nimble fencer 1.

with fargo in the discard, i should have a good shot at taking board control, keeping some units, and setting up river on turn 4.


that’s a nice reshuffle. can’t ask for better.

T1 costs 1 gold. One-color codex @codexnewb

ahhh! good point. totally forgot. ill just float the gold!

does neutral finesse not count as a second colour then?

when there are two same mono-colors (demon and necro are both black starter) then a neutral, it does not count for the multicolor penalty.

huh seems powerful but fair enough :+1:

Gonna have to bring this one back a little, teching an argonaut for the defence, should be able to make good trades with hasty virtuosos with them

had t think long and hard about this one…gotta love battle suits.

hmmm, this is a tough turn…well, here are some of the options i see.

  1. fencer/haunt -> neo, vandy-> geiger - garth on sql
  2. graveyard and wait
  3. hero’s hall and wait
  4. max vandy
  5. tap vandy for shadowblade

as much as i hate it, after playing out each of these, i think just being patient is best. lets put theiving imp out there, and force him to use geiger a little.

It is powerful :grin: but it is meant to be a perk of using the neutrals over other specs that can do similar things better

tbh it would be worse if he killed my t1 next turn, I can draw round one card from my discard, giving a 4/7 chance of drawing a t2 next turn but id rather play an argonaut, i do need something to recover this game though or i’m just gonna stay behind
didn’t attack with geiger as can prevent more damage where he is
confident that at least one of my tech buildings will survive to my next turn

hmmm, tech 2, but no reshuffle. i DOUBT he has tech 2 past units already. that would be incredible foresight. ill take my chances and break the tech 1.

teching dark pact and star crossed starlet to stay with the maestro tech 2 strategy for now. just try and flood the board if i can.

T5 is board flood
T6 is meta

Ah i hoped you wouldnt have 2nd nimble fencer!

well… this game isnt looking great, i do really want my t2 so will likely have to waste the nullcraft on his haunt (definitely what he intended, this guys good) think im gonna take a chance on the draw, about 3 or 4 cards to draw thatd work… yayy golgort was probs best card from my discard i could get! still not overly hopeful but if i my t2 can survive to next turn might end up gunning for a t3 as i think past was maybe an odd t2 choice, thing is present is appealing but its expensive and wouldve come in too late to save this game

yeah! dark pact is the real mvp

nice temporal research there. i think this is about done. i dont think even a rewind would help at this point he’d need a series of ready or not. question is, did he tech them?

Not sure i’m winning this one but i’ll see how it plays out

had hoped to get second chances out to counter sacrifice the weak/doomgrasp/vandy max band/shadowblade!! since that bad start to the game i just havent caught up, maybe i needed more of a strong come back card…

yeah, i definitely got some good draws there.

unfortunately for your T5, i dont think you can build a tech 3 without an active tech 2. since i broke the tech 2 last turn, it needs to rebuild this turn.

1 Like

@dwarddd that is indeed correct, please edit your turn with whatever you’d rather spend the 5g on, and re-draw your next hand. Keep in mind, with your T2 down you are on a one-hero limit

Oh yh ofc! Thats a mistake i make too often but i forget because the t3 is so appealing lol, reckon im allowed to change my tech choices too? @FrozenStorm @codexnewb

totally. you get a turn redo basically since that was an ‘illegal’ turn.

in which case i forfeit, gg
nothing big coming and your virtuosos are too well set up…
and you say you had lucky draws, which may be true but dark pact obviously helps that, real bummer was the sacrifice the golgort (i had teched second chances in fear of things like that but never had a chance to set things up
