[XCAFS20] Round4: dwarddd MonoPurple vs Bomber678 [Bashing]/Discipline/Fire

Hi @Bomber678 , here are the deck changes (turn to come shortly):

Neutral Starter:
Spark costs 0 (instead of 1)
Fruit Ninja is a 3/2 (instead of 2/2) and keeps Frenzy 1

Bashing:
Troq midband becomes topband and can deal 1 damage to any building (not just a base)
Troq midband becomes readiness, level range is 4-7 instead of 5-7
Troq maxband becomes Overpower
The Boot becomes “Trash an opposing Tech 0 or Tech I unit. Trash this card”
Intimidate changes from “Give a unit or hero -4atk until end of turn” to “Give a unit or hero -3atk/1hp until your next upkeep”
Final Smash cost reduced to 3

Discipline:
Versatile Style has these 4 abilities (improved, still costs 2):

  • Destroy an Upgrade
  • Disable a Hero, or a Unit with Flying
  • Repair 4 damage from a building
  • Your Discipline hero is a Detector until your next turn

Focus Master - Changes to 2 cost, ability becomes “All your patrollers gain +1armor”
Hero’s Monument - Daigo Stormborne has Haste in addition to his other abilities

Fire:
Jaina Midband loses the “patrolling” designation
Fire Dart costs 1 (instead of 2)
Flame Arrow costs 3 (instead of 4)
Doubleshot Archer costs 2 (instead of 3)


Purple Starter:

Time Spiral costs 0, and ability adjusted: “Add or remove a time rune from a card (or forecasted card) that you control”
Tinkerer also triggers on Arrival. “Arrives: or :exhaust:: Add or remove a time rune from a card (or forecasted card) that you control” //combined with the other changes, previous version was a bit too degenerate

Past:

Prynn midband becomes Dies:… (instead of “Dies from fading”)
Seer can only affect cards you control.

Present:

Sentry’s ability becomes “Prevent the first point of damage that would be dealt to your patrollers each turn (active player’s choice if more than one patroller is dealt damage at the same time)”
Hyperion reduced to 4/4 (instead of 4/5)
Octavian’s ability becomes: “1: Disable a unit or hero and give Octavian -1/1 until next upkeep” (loses :exhaust: and no longer readies him). Also gains “Resist 1”

Future:

Vir midband is range 4-6 (instead of 5-6)
Double Time Cost reduced to 5 and moves to forecast 2 (instead of forecast 3)
Knight of the Conclave is Forecast 2 (instead of 3), loses resist 1
Reaver’s ability becomes: “Arrives or :exhaust:: Trash a worker, or deal 6 damage to a Unit or Hero”. Cost reduced to 2

with this first hand there’s pretty much just an obvious best play… worker choice is harder

Granfalloon Flagbearer, Spark, Brick Thief

Think

I get the feeling he won’t play Mox given that I have wither, but just incase he tries it anyway I’ll get Troq ready to boot. More likely I’ll be grabbing intimidate to bust up some beefy tech 1s (or just boot them too).

choices this turn: NC or tinkerer are main ones -
NC - should last a while considering troq can’t spell him, not sure what it’s targets would be though
tinkerer - feels dull going the KotC route for another game, but it might be the best option - they are big which counters intimidate and Fire spells and they are cheap which counters the Boot

techs: if NC i’ll go for maybe a buffed sentry and either an argonaut or a gilded glaxx
if tinkerer I’ll go double KotC

decided I wanted to try double sentry - blocking two dmg a turn should be great - so NC was the better play

Turn 2

Hmm, purple is way too efficient early. I guess I’ll just sac troq and punish with flame arrow. Not sure how I’m gonna win before tech 2

Lol Bomber you can read what you like on the tournament thread now xd I had a question about double Sentry and didn’t want you to have any extra info about my tech choices but now you can see a second Sentry anyway

no scav gold means it’s not worth skipping a worker to get tinkerer out as well I don’t think; I am aiming for a very advanced tricycloid tho as per the caption on the card

was getting a bit low on cards but now I managed to do a temporal distortion into hyperion it’s all good; I think from here I have enough of a board to mess with that between prynn and max’s maxband I should be able to finish this soon

a shame that the hyperion draw was the other tricycloid, still one TD in deck though :slight_smile:

Well this is bad. Where did that tricycloid come from…? The world may never know

GGWP Bomber, I got a little carried away there at the end xd

Unlucky for you that the only tech 2 card you drew with the building up was Hotter Fire, considering how may tech 2s you’d stacked the deck with for that turn :confused:

That’s how the game goes. A wiser person would say that teching hotter fire was too ambitious, and I should’ve put in another tech 2 unit (or a beefy tech 1 unit).
