Thoughts

As it seems I can kill both units and don't have to fear any hasty stuff (drakk being unavailable for now), I can go for a tech II rush. afaik cheap strong blockers are a pain for white agression, so let's fry finesse. I will see later if I go for a virtuoso strategy or build a tech lab for growth token/rune spam, both being very effective with Fencers.

Looks good. Discipline II is strong but lacks hasty stuff. Of course there is still Drakk + bloodlust, but it requires much more investment than a Crashbarrow for similar damage. On next turn if lucky, or T6 at most, I can burst out Blademaster(s).

#12

Arg ability is targeted, which means it would have to target my Flagbearer.


#13

@Marto we gonna finish this game or naw?


#14

I’m awarding this match to @EricF due to lack of advance in play from @Marto
