On second Thoughts
I just figured out Max Drakk + Crash Bomber would lead to a Garth kill !
Maxband Drakk (1 gold left)
Horror trading with SQL, lobber with Zombie, skeleton 1 with Elite.
Play Crash Bomber, gets Hasty
Bomber trades with scav, deals 1 to techn
Garth kills techn
last skele trades with Garth.
That’d left him with a wounded Garth, Maxband Drakk in SQL, and tech II, but only 3 cards; vs me having Max midori, no tech II (but heroes’ hall), and 5 cards plus loads of gold ie I’d build a tech II. That’d be fun, as with him having 7 workers and me 8 and seeing the board state, we could belive we’re playing turns 3-4…
The situation would be far less dire than a straight Doom Grasp on Midori, but far more plausible. I feel Frozenstorm teched LBs fairly recently, after the “aggro lobbers + tech II” plan fell off. So I expect him not having teched other Garth spells…
