I have Snapback to cover hero strats… so he’ll probably go Disease. I think Calamandra will be a good plan while Flagbearer covers Doom Grasp.

NOTE @Nopethebard I messed up your opponent and deck assignments this round, you are playing against @James (not @Bomber678) and the deck matchup is [Strength]/Feral/Growth vs [Demonology]/Disease/Necromancy

Please retake your turn 1 and my apologies for the mixup!

i could use an attack and sickness to clear birds and tech up with a unit and orpal left to defend, and hope for a good draw next turn, or board clear at great card expense, not reshuffle, and fill the deck with tech IIs aiming to tech up next turn. on balance going for the more aggressive option as likely more disruptive of plans?

Well that happened. Time to course correct. He may be able to kill Arg but I need the space to tech up. Good thing I drew Snapback Again. MoLaC is my new wincon with Blooming Ancient to help curb the effects of disease.

Next turn: play a bunch of units, rain +1/+1s to buff everything, and see if I can activate MoLaC. If I succeed, I may well win. If I can’t, that’s probably GG.

Ancients get runes from heroes arriving, but they can only give runes to units.
