I considered Cal instead of Grave, but I like being able to threaten Grappling Hook + sparkshot.

It was either this or a lone Ironbark Treant. I didn’t like that as much since I could see a straight line from there to midband Grave facing off against an empty board. This way I should have more bodies to help weather the coming storm. #gravejokes

Cal might’ve been a better choice after all… oh well.
I don’t think thehug0naut has very good anti-hero options, so I’m orienting towards a HH next turn.

My main worry this turn was being vulnerable to Reversal. Killing his board this way is less efficient than Growthing the Panda, but it means he has to pay 4 to reversal my 1/1 (a bad trade by itself) and then doesn’t have enough gold to worker and midband Grave, meaning Arg should survive. If he doensn’t have Reversal then I simply lose Propsector for no benefit so I can live with that. I had to go down on cards but I feel a lot more comfortable with this board than trying to defend vs Grave with buffs and healing. Dropping down in cards means I probably need to plan for Tech II in 2 turns, but it will mean I can stack my deck to make it hit right. Because of that (and my drop in cards) I’m throwing in Spirit of the Panda and a Centaur rather than my usual Galina+Huntress go-to.

Change of plans, I’ll go for a fast tech 2 + Centaur next turn. I’ll pre-tech the right cards so I’ll have at least one of them on T5 for sure.
Flagbearer should counter all Green/Arg spells other than Forest’s Favor, which means he’s actually a higher priority than Spartner.

This turn I wanted to seize some advantages by getting a couple of big bodies into play, even if I go down in cards. Given that I can skip worker, max arg and get Tech II up my hand size will recover pretty quickly even if it takes a hit right now. Plan A is still in effect so let’s get the deck stuffed Present Tech II.

@Dreamfire’s turn!

Commentary (not to be read by players until post-game)

Curious why Hug would patrol Centaur in Elite, when that will net him taking a free sparkshot and/or get doubled off from Grave sword / Reversal… I like the Ironbark / Centaur lay to set up Arg Max + Tech 2 next turn, really smart plan, but the patrol kind of baffles me. Anyone else following along that’s curious? Grappling Hook doesn’t seem a good reason to me

I can’t get a read on thehug0naut, so I’ll just tech generic answers to Present’s tech 2. If it ends up being MoLaC instead, I could tech a Versatile Style before the reshuffle.
Assuming my patrol zone dies, my next turn would either be maxband Garth or midband Cal + YLD.

Well that worked out pretty much as expected, managed to clear most of his board and recover my hand size. Likely Tech II options from him are Young Lightning Dragons, Mind Parry Monk and Training Grounds. I currently don’t have an answer outside of Tricycloid for a YLD, so the combo with MPM is a pretty strong lock, but it takes up his whole turn and I can probably do something about it if I draw well enough. Reversal would be pretty good here, letting him get past my elemental, but even at 9 gold he can’t break Tech II with Grave because of the extra 1g needed for Training Grounds. His most likely turn is probably MPM or YLD plus some gold spent on Grave. I suppose Hook Elemental, Midband, kill Elemental, maxband kill Arg/Centaur is pretty decent for 6 gold too. Regardless I can’t see how he breaks Tech II, so I shall throw in some more Tech II options and entrust my fate to the gods of cards and spreadsheets. Worried about insufficient gold for unit + Geiger + TD so trying to make sure I get something decent in hand.

Well I’ve got some oomph in hand, lets see if it’ll be enough. Kind of depends what he leaves me with.

I’m actually considering fetching Rambasa Twins instead of Vigor Adept, to get more patrol goodies, but they’re more vulnerable to overpower, Tric pings, and Hyperions.
Luckily, thehug0naut can’t afford too many Geiger shenanigans yet. And after that worker skip, I feel comfortable doing the same.

So I managed to murder his whole board, which is great, but I drew into TD off the Hyperion, which is real bad for my damage/gold spent. No worker means 8 gold next turn to face down what I assume will be 2g maxband Calamandra plus some Tech II threat. A boosted hoodie is also nasty as it clears my Elemental to pave the way for a YLD to take out tech buildings uncontested, but I’m not sure if thats on the cards or not. He’s 4 cards into his cycle though, so if he’s anticiptaed this line then it could be. If there isn’t a hoodie coming then I’ve stll got good board pressure so hopefully I can make a significant dent. As it is the game feels on a knife edge and a mistake either way will likely swing it. Teching in an extra TD to try and make sure I draw into it on the recycle and a Now! for more tempo potential. Tempted to throw in Chronofixers so I can safely ignore the Training Grounds, but not confinced they’ll come out fast enough to do anything useful for me at this point. Will decide what I think is best once I see the board state.

That hurt, but thehug0naut is taking a risk skipping a 2nd worker with such an expensive tech 2 plan. If I get to keep my Training Grounds for another turn, I think the economical advantage is gonna start showing.
Since I don’t have a strong hand, my main aim in the current turn is to prevent Hyperion from surviving its first attack and being flickered/TDed.

It took a bit of doing to figure out my optimum line. He pretty much managed to take the Tricycloid off the table with Calamandra’s midband, so short of a really lucky TD draw I was stuck on Hyperions which are poor value vs numerous smaller things. I did see a line where Calamandra died and I got the Tech building break but it a) left Geiger on field at maxband where he could easily be snapbacked b) meant I couldn’t worker and c) isn’t as mean as trapping him on Calamandra so he can’t use the Training Grounds (mwahaha) While Arg is vulnerable to Snapback, it’ll cost 5 gold with resist and offcolour penalty and then he’ll still have to choose between killing my Tech II, my Hyperion or Geiger (assuming he snaps him in) so I should have some sort of options next turn even if he’s drawn it. Chronofixer in to hopefully lock down the Training Grounds permanently, and Immortal as a strong TD/Now target.

Well, that was much more painful than I anticipated. Although I saw the start of that line I didn’t think about Rambasa twins. That could be the beginning of the end potentially. His board has so many different threats that its hard to know what to focus on this turn. I couldn’t see a line that uses the Hyperion in my hand and killed everything I wanted so I had to look instead at TDing in a Tricycloid and flickering it. 6 damage to spend lets me take out one of Tech II/Garth/Training Grounds/board. On balance I think Garth + one Rambasa is maybe the best option here as it denies him most of his scariest responses (Garth spells mainly) and I don’t think his hand will be completely full of Reversal/Snapback/Ferocity/Behind the Ferns. Even if he has one or more of those he’s not breaking my Tech II or killing Calamandra so I might still have some hope of staying in the game. I did think about patrolling Geiger in SQL but I’m worried about Ferocity making him an easy kill.

thehug0naut just spent a lot of gold to offset the $2 that Garth cost me, so maybe I’m still in this game. I’ll Snapback Cal out because she’s scary (and Feral Strike is almost an insta-win), while maxband Geiger (even with R&D) isn’t so bad.

So this is an interesting turn. The obvious play is Midband Arg+Immortal+Arg Buff+Now! to kill Grave, which maxbands Arg and gives me a Water Elemental to deal with the Young Lightning Dragon. However I mosg likely lose Tech II and with 1 gold left I’m unable to get Chronofixer into play, which seems like a super big problem against an immminently returning Garth. The alternative is to forego the Water Elemental and trade Arg in. He then has to choose between killing a 1/1 with the lightning dragon or taking out my Tech II. Given he only has 3 cards I think he has to take out the Chronofixer. That should leave me with Geiger, Tech II up and a 74% chance of drawing into a Tech II card. The only other possible line is to play Verdant Tree over Chronofixer which guarantees Tech II but I probably lose Geiger. After sleeping on it I think I need to try the Chronofixer line and hope I don’t get a bad draw. #pleasedontscrewme

@Dreamfire’s turn!

Note that Geiger Sparks the dragon here.
