I’m gonna learn from my mistake last game and open with Cal instead of Grave. There’s nothing I really want to worker, but Hook seems to be the least impactful in the long term.

My Thoughts

Better draws this time, though nothing is perfectly safe to Cala. I could 50/50 he doesn’t have Hook and SQL Garth, but I think I’d rather just force him to evaluate the stealth kill. If he does do that, I’d expect he techs Sparring Partner and lay that with a tiger summon, or stack YLD and summon a tiger. Either way I think I’ll probably be able to make it work with Hooded Exec or Kidnapping as a tech, so we’ll go with that.

I’m guessing Frozen is drawing into Imp, which is why he’s ok with trading Garth for cards.
He also has tools in his codex to deal with maxband Cal, but hopefully I can get some value out of her first. It’d be nice to draw (and keep) one of my teched cards, then play Spartner + a pulled Tiger, or Centaur + HH.

I saw the Imp coming, but it doesn’t do me much good. With Haunt in play and Spartner knocked out of my hand, I can’t protect a Tiger from StW. I’ll have to give up tempo to rebuild handsize.

Dodged a bullet there! Didn’t even think that Stalking is invisible (and thus immune to Kidnapping!) unless I have a tower in advance. That seems a good investment here, as it also allows me to stick a Graveyard with 100% safety. Next turn I can tech up if it seems prudent, so I’ll grab a Nether Drain and a Crashbarrow for next cycle.

My Thoughts

Ouch, that’s a lot of offense. I could Boost Hoodie to get rid of some of it, but I somehow doubt he wants to go Behind the Ferns with a tower already up (maybe he does)? So in order to max protect the Graveyard, I want to lay Jav, Hoodie and a hero SQL to avoid giving levels. Jaina will be the sacrifice, and on to tech2 blood, where hopefully I can turn the tide. Grabbing another Nether Drain (since he’s so heavy on heros) and Glider.

There should be a dead Imp in your Graveyard. Does that change your turn somehow?

Nope, just missed noting it. I’ll edit it in :slight_smile:

Death Rites doesn’t have great value with all these weenies, but I can still use it to get at the tech 2 and explode the Graveyard. I’ll have ~4 attackers left, which probably isn’t enough to re-break tech 2 next turn, but I’ll get to reshuffle. So let’s tech some more removal, and hope for the best!

Skeleton draws give me Spartner, which is great, and Snapback, which is a tad unfortunate. The question that remains is what to worker. I like having Safe Attacking to offset the tower, so I guess I’ll worker Flagbearer despite the risk of Kidnappings, since my units are generally cheaper than the spell.

My Thoughts

Well, I got great RNG on where all the tech 2 units ended up! Kidnapping also plays well into the Lich’s Bargain, and him burning his own base down also plays to my favor. Barring a Grappling Hook or Reversal (or Doom Grasp I suppose?) I think my tech 2 should survive and I should be able to counter-punch HARD. Drakk getting some chip onto his base for his sacrifice should help as well. Going to tech a Bugblatter for help with burning his units down, as well. If it doesn’t I’ll need a way to burn down some horde and put up some of my own, so teching a Lich’s Bargain and an Ember Sparks.

I have zero idea what Frozen is planning to do with all that float, probably some kind of Garth play? I don’t think he can make lethal just yet.
Anyway, I can re-break tech 2 with Sensei’s Advice, then either tech up or flood the board. At this point, I don’t think tech 2 is gonna matter. With 15 ATK already on board, and drawing into Reversal and Hoodie, I think I have a fair shot at lethal next turn.

Fucking Sensei’s Advice! Didn’t think about Snapback either! this is pretty bad, having a tech 2 whiff like this… I need to keep as many cards as possible to lay as many blockers as possible (I don’t have that many in the deck!) and I need Garth now, which is super unfortunate timing with no spells to speak of… I almost want him to Lich’s Bargain again… Crash Bomber to help continue chipping away, and another Ember Sparks to perhaps seal the deal… But he’s laying 15 possible attack, my tech 2 is certainly going down again.

I can’t figure out a way to get lethal, so let’s just break everything. I considered Snapbacking Garth out, but I think disabling him is actually better. If he can’t suicide, neither of the red heroes can show up to burn my base.

Thoughts

Argh, damn that Imp! Hitting the best card in my hand for the 2nd time this game…
Gonna clear all of Frozen’s units to minimize the value of a potential Death Rites, and take away the fuel of enemy Garth’s draw engine.
I’ll make a skeleton instead of playing Centaur, to increase my draw and have more potential fuel for my own Garth’s engine. And I’ll train Horror to keep him alive in case of Kidnapping.
Not playing Cal to keep her safe from Doom Grasp, in hopes of drawing a game-winning BtF.

My Thoughts

All-out atrophied aggresion to end this game, we’re both huffing and puffing from the spent workers and lack of cards, but doing everything we can to keep the other from making a killblow. Luckily, though, I’m getting my tech 2 back, so I’m bringing another Glider and a Kidnapping into the deck. Anything to hit that base!

I think I lost this game when I arrogantly floated instead of making a skeleton on T7…
