hmmm, risking it with rook that he doesnt have wither and messenger. but even if he does, he'd need to skip tech 1 to do it, and go down on cards. obviously dark pact will help, but still.

next turn, im hoping to get that scav gold and drop tech 1, hero's hall, ogre, and bombaster. if one of those get's skipped, it's most likely the hero's hall.

game plan is to bring in Sparring Partner and Fencer, similar to Erif last tourney. Birds/Parner after that, etc…

I am expecting Taxman from him to counter birds, so unlikely he skips tech 1.

Tech in 2x Gunpoint Taxman

Quick Math:
Opponent has 2, 2 attack, and can gain:
1 for 1 (mad man)
1 for 2 (baster)
2 for 3 (bomb)
2 for 4 (scorch)
4 for 5 (ogre + charge)
Dog already in play
Pillage, musket, bloodburn: whatever

With 7 gold to spend. Ok, need to patrol Vandy to make the turn go poorly. He could quick-max Rook, but I have, well, not much to do about that except grinding him down.

well, the most dangerous thing is shadowblade…also souls stone wold make his trades effecient.

well, need to make a decision, i think ogre and bombaster is the best i can do. space guys out to avoid sparkshot, dog in lookout rook to hits tenderfoot just so if she attacks she's die.

teching partner and fencer. i thinkthe plan is to hero's hall next turn, and then get rolling with fencers, birds, etc…

however, growth could be a problem. he can't tech 2 next turn, but i get the feeling he might turtle up to go for surprise molac. we'll see…

P1, Turn 3

So, “can I kill Rook (and forestall birds)?” is the question:
Defense: 3, 2, 1 // 3 = 9
Attack: 1, 2, 2 = 5
Pay 1 for 1
Pay 2 for +1
Pay 2 more for +2 more
Pay 2 for +1 (wither)

So, if the math works out, I could pay 5 gold to be left with Max Vandy, doomed unit vs nothing. And it wastes the levels.

So, let’s not do that, and just put more stuff into play.

Unless I’ve forgotten about something, I think that’s game, as you can’t attack either hero, and I can use up tower + hit base for 6 + tutor for & play Dark Pact to finish you off (and you can’t possibly deal 18 damage to my base either, nor get Rook off the board to bring in a different hero)

Zane attacks SQL, using up tower
Vandy Readily hits your Base for 6
Tap Vandy and discard to fetch Dark Pact (7)
Dark Pact, you draw 2 and your base goes to 0hp
