I like Grave for threatening sparkshot on Bomber’s multitude of tokens. And Savior Monk on scav does ok against StW.

I think I need to pressure Bomber, so as to deter a Graveyard. I’m willing to give away the technician draw to keep tempo, even though I could lose Savior Monk to StW or Det+Haunt.

I think the 4 gold into maxband Grave is an efficient answer to the 4 gold and 2 cards (1 after technician) Bomber invested in BCs. If I lose my own BC next turn, I could play Rambasa and tech up, otherwise I’ll probably just HH. Since I’m not reshuffling yet, I’ll stick with teching spells for now.

I think since he haste no haste he can’t kill my tech 2 next turn, so if he kills Garth I can do a mirror crashbarrow. I may be proven wrong though.

Thoughts

I wasn’t able to apply enough pressure, and now it’s Crashbarrow time… At least Bomber can’t afford all 3 of maxband Quince + Crashbarrow + Graveyard.
I regret teching Behind the Ferns last turn. I wanted it as an answer to Bugblatter/Quince/Graveyard, but at this rate I won’t have units to use it with. It’s also utterly useless against Crashbarrows. Murkwood Allies is much better for that. Other than that, I’ll take a Vigor Adept as an efficient way to get value out of Ferocity. YLDs lose to Gliders, and Focus Master is too situational. I’ll probably pull a MPM with Garth at some point.

Thinking intensifies

I wasn’t sure if going for the mirror was correct this turn. I could’ve just done worker things and put a javelineer in and blah blah blah, but then I was like “how about I just kill his stuff and then he can’t kill Quince (barring a reversal)?” But he probably has reversal so I think I’m going to be punished for my HUBRIS (but I still keep my Tech 2 so whatever)

I don’t know why Bomber didn’t just maxband Quince, but thanks to Grappling Hook I can trade Grave for him and bring in Garth. Bomber’s Crashbarrow is in discard, ready to be fetched, but that would be the entire 8 gold, so I’m not too worried.

I finally get a chance to strike, let’s make it count! I’m going to maxband Cal just for the chance of playing Feral Strike, which means I can’t afford Murkwood Allies, but that’s ok. Swift-Striking BC + skeleton on elite should be impervious to anything but Deteriorate + Shoddy Glider.


#13

In the order played, your skeleton would not have ferocity. I assume you want that, so the skeleton would need to be created earlier in the turn, which is entirely feasible to do.


#14

I didn’t number the skeletons (I had one from the previous turn), so technically the elite one could have Swift Strike. But you’re right of course, it would’ve been cleaner to create the skeleton earlier.

Bigger thinks

I sure did forget about ferocity while planning my turn. Good thing they posted or I would have totally posted an illegal turn.
I went through about three variations of this turn, but my motto remains the same. Keep up the tech 2, wait for crashbarrows. Might even build a Tech 3, but we’ll see.


#16
Bomber678

Why do you keep using midband quince instead of maxband?


#17
Hello zhavier

In that instance it was because I was saving money by using Garth to level up quince.
Turn 5? Cause uhhhhhhhhhhhh I’m dumb?

I actually considered playing unboosted Feral Strike to just get MPM and YLD for cheap, but MPM + Elephant is insanely hard to counter (plus it keeps my handsize up).
Also it’s nice to get some value out of Safe Attacking.


#20

This is… decidedly uncool.

I did not, in fact, read mind parry monk properly. Kidnapping is useless here.

I cannot see any possible path that could lead to me living through just the damage on your board, and you undoubtedly have combat tricks up your sleeve. I concede.

@zhavier wrap me up boy cause I’m bustering out
