I’m pretty sure you steal both his gold, and so you have 1 left.

Edit: I am dumb.

He is casting off color.

Discord, kill careless but otherwise do little. I think I need some base health, but I suspect that will fail in the long term. He is definitely going to tap cal to get a cat. I just need to survive long enough to make this codex work, against fairly overwhelming force, probably lost when i didn’t play rook on turn 1.


#12

Wow, is this game going to be no buildings vs no units?

P1, Turn 4

Makeshift Rambaster — Tech 0
Scorch — Magic
Charge — Magic
Ferocity

Quick Math: I have 3, 2, 2, 4 attackers and can gain:
3 for 2
2 for 3
1 for 2-3
up to 3 for 3 (drakk) = 16 total in the extreme.
Defense: 6 // 14 = 20. So I can’t actually lethal this turn. But I can come darn close…

Tech Desperation and Kidnapping

6 gold (6)
Cal deals 4 to Rook, and dies
Summon Drakk (4)
Bombaster trades with Rook, Drakk to L3
Level Drakk to 4 (3)
Makeshift Rambaster (1)
Rambaster (4) + BRO (4) + Musketeer (3) attack your Base for 11
Discard 3, rs, Draw 5. Float 1 gold.

SQL - L4 Drakk (2/3 +1)

Bloodrage Ogre (3/2)
Careless Musketeer (2/1)
Makeshift Rambaster (1/2)

Base - 20

6 workers, 1 gold
Hand: 5
Deck: 6
Discard: 0

Next Hand
  1. Desperation
  2. Behind the Ferns
  3. Ferocity
  4. Scorch — Magic
  5. Kidanpping

#13

That will be game, GG!

I made a serious misplay on turn 1 not playing rook behind savior monk and giving you a free swing with pillage.


#14

Yeah, that would led to an entirely different game. gg @FrozenStorm

Also, this might be the first actual tournament win by a multicolor deck that never suffered the building penalty?


#15

Can’t pay a penalty when you don’t build any buildings :slight_smile:

Didn’t even play a teched spell. Pretty crazy, GG WP you two


#16

Yeah, I was 100% to win on my next turn without using any of the Wounds I teched, unless Zhavier could play a Versatile Style (either teching it Turn 2, or teching Martial Mastery Turn 2 and drawing into it), and also play enough “stuff” to block and/or remove Drakk with.

Excercise for the reader: what possible plays could zhavier could have made (with any 3 starter deck cards + any 2 Codex cards in hand) to not lose on turn 5, starting from 3 base helth, given my T4 board, and a hand of Shock + 4 blanks?


#17

You did play at least one off-color spell, so saying you never suffered the multicolor penalty is a bit misleading… :wink:


#18

He did have Snapback in hand to help with Drakk, as well as Reversal, but I don’t think there was much to be done to stay alive on 3 base hp
