so initial thoughts: i dont feel comfortable going the normal BC route, since kidnapping gets so much value from tradeing BC into my hero's/other BC.

BA's are also vulnerable against kidnapping, and given he teched in in his last game, i think that's probably on his mind already.

so if no BA, then maybe MOLAC. i can rush LB, hope to draw it after going tech 2, then drop MOLAC with all the units i have from LB. he might not trade into me because of his whole behind the ferns shananigans last time. but molac on the field with fencers would be a win regardless of his stealth.

cant hero bc if he has mad man or rambaster, he can plow through and kill garth. so no hero's…just play for rewards for the time being.

edit: lol, BALANCE, NATURE RECLAIMS…molac not really a primary option here. still like that openening play though. maybe BA’s with flagbearer?

Keeping his board clear, dealing with the swarm efficiently, break all the things, that’s the plan.

okay, so sort of in a pickle here, since he can just bring in hasty mad man, clear a skeleon/wisp/whatever, and get at a hero on teh backline. unless, if i bring in mid arg, then i can survivve his ogre coming at me.

teching in a BC and spirit of the panda. hoping to draw the SOTP second, allowing me to max arg and summon BC…

Ohh, tech 2 race, thought he might push harder there, but he wants to lay down future pressure. Hmmm, with arg maxed, might as well lay down the BRO damage on him, though technically my chances of drawing my tech cards goes up slightly if I let BRO simply return to hand… Meh, this way arg is a much more manageable 3 health, rather than the annoying wall he usually is. Barring fencers or an arg buff, which would be unlikely with him in SQL, I have a decent chance to activate molac first. With 12g guaranteed next turn, I should have lots of options.

edit:

  1. river instead of garth
  2. no skeleton
  3. pay 3 for wither
  4. re-draw hand.

Feral strike was ballsy. Don’t know why I am being so reckless. Still have lots of options though. Likely response here is BA with Garth, stuff in hand, and maybe a skeleton, but not enough gold to do both max garth and a fencer, so I am safe. Also he doesnt have enough stuff to get molac running

#16

dah, nice one man. for some reason, i thought your were using balance, but that was just me being an idiot. i should have rushed molac and had a good ole growth battle with you. GG man!


#17

Ah, pity, I thought we were having a molac race at one point, but it never materialized. Now I know :slight_smile: It can happen to the best of us.

Good luck in the tourney.


#18

Hey Zhavier, in your turn 4 notes you talk about increased chance of drawing something if you let Bloodrage return. As far as I know, he returns after your cleanup step, so you don’t actually get any further through your deck.


#19

Nope, but the deck is thinner with Ogre in hand than if he dies and gets reshuffled, as it is the case here.


#20

What Marto said.
