My Thoughts

No idea how best to open here, but graveyard + lobbers feels like a good choice, so leaning that way


wow, what did happen there ? Posting my real turn asap.

For some reason the sheet discarded/drew twice in a row so it overwrote my turn. I had to redo it manually.

Thoughts

Graveyard + BC seems fine. I really wonder if I should keep Skeletal Archery, as it could offer heavy damage on next turn. Workering Imp sucks though. Too bad I had all SS/Jandra/Rogue on first turn, but well, haunt T1 + Jav T2 is fine enough.

Yeah, looks like he’s going to horde. Grab a Lich’s Bargain in case I need it, and a Lobber for smashing, and plan to quick tech Blood I think.

Graveyard on T2 ? Hmmm, maybe Lobbers incoming. I'm not sure I've anything to stop them though… Definitely should've kept Imp.

Wow he left his Garth totally vulnerable. Makes me think he’s trying to draw BC/Tiny B + Now! I’ll fetch a BC and SQL it, that should keep me safe enough to get to blood T2 next turn without incident.

Thoughts

I've no good options to Kidnapping, save that Hyperions still benefit from haste and Tricycloids, well, are not such a good target. Unsurprisingly Frozenstorm had some way to kill Garth, so I should use Nether Drain (I should have teched it twice, that will was obvious).

My Thoughts

So easy to kill the tech 2 here, so let’s think ahead: the only thing that’s going to stop my horde is a moment’s peace out of him, so what do I tech to combat that? Bloodlust sounds like a decent plan, as does Ember Sparks. lets go with that, b/c the likely play if he does have it is Midbandori SQL + Moment’s Peace, so I’d need Garth to swing + 2 damage, so Sparks gives me that plus a ping on something, and lobber can ping it as well.


Actually your jav dies from the exchange because he has skeletal archery out. Should be shown in GY

Good call, fixed

I’m afraid that’s GG already. So sad not to fight back the slightest…
With my hand, you can break my Tech II again without playing anything (just bring your Lobber back from the grave is enough). And I expect tech IIs, some spells and/or Death Rites, so…

GG WP! I figured that might be a scoop, unless you were holding moments peace, and even then it’d be delaying a big attack.

This was a tournament dominated by lichs bargain
