Welllll that’s not so good. He’s probably still hard up to break this line though, so I should go off next turn.

So Bomber took a risk and only teched one Garrison, which is great news for me. Injunction on tech 1 + breaking tech 2 should pretty much lock this down.

I had to make some decisions and I hope they were the right ones. We’ll see. Feels bad wasting those levels, but what are you gonna do.

He needs to die to deal the extra damage.

Oof, never underestimate the board-breaking power of Drakk with a bunch of gold. I’m tempted to go for some Geiger shenangians, but I think investing in an Immortal now and making sure I have Injunction next turn is the smarter play.

#38

Bleh. I had one whiff and struggled for the rest of the game.


#39

I guess you mean whiffing the Garrison on T6? Yeah, that was a tough break.

As for your comment on me always having an answer, that’s par for the course when combining the game’s most consistent hero with the most snowball-y tech 2, with a little bit of Bigby’s control and hand-manipulation sprinkled in. Credit to @cstick who ran (the legal version of) this codex a couple tournaments back.


#40

Well yes, Garth is also broken. I hate black.

It was whiffing garrison and drill sergeant. I just needed a tech 2 to make my board unclearable.


#41

Personally, I’d place Drakk at the same tier as Garth. It’s just that Garth is more consistent, while Drakk has more snowball potential. They’re both way up there with Vandy, Rook, and… I guess that’s it.
