I would play argonaut, but I don’t want to get sac the weak’d again like last time -__- Overall strategy here:respond to whatever he is doing with balance techs and win with big Present things/temp dist into Blood haste.

Aiming to draw both tech’d cards next turn - an extra draw with max if not. One would be fine though.

Even drawing my Now doesn’t do much any more. Also, I am scared of fencers next turn. Most of the things I could draw are useful, so I will draw - Fargo. OK so next turn let’s say he draws double fencer and has sac the weak. Jandra does two damage, fencer kills Argo, then sac the weak Fargo and vandy kills Max - that’s pretty bad, and he still has two gold and maybe another fencer. I can’t think of a better play though? So I didn’t play around Jandra well I guess. I forgot to consider her as an option. Let’s hope no fencer AND sac the weak.

Quick note, you forgot to list your Tech 1, made me do a double take lol.

If I draw StW from DP, I can full clear with max Vandy (4), boost Fargo and Jandra, StW on Javelineer (3) to kill Fargo, 5/5 Jandra kills Argo, Vandy kills Geiger. I don’t worker. Or I could midband (2), fetch Shadow Blade (4), trade Jandra and blade Argo, play Haunt, and worker. Vandy then dies to Geiger max + Fargo damage and Haunt finishes off Fargo. not terrible. The dream is the 1/6 highroll where I draw StW and Deteriorate, letting me worker and clear both units.

EDIT: yeah I’m silly, I don’t need deteriorate to clear both units, as this line of play shows.

So am I more scraed of Vandy or tech I? Probs tech I, so I’ll get rid of that. Then what? I could level up max to save him from the spook, or nullcraft and kill the spook. The latter gives me a nullcraft and protects my argonaut from StW, so I’ll do that. Keeping my draw low also means I might not prematurely draw my hyperion.

Nasty. paid cards for it though. Deteriorate plus Vandy bop kills SQL, StW for nullcraft. that leaves me with 6 gold and very little to do. I could also Vandy fetch pact and hope to draw Imp and/or Jandra. Next turn I’ll have Heroes Hall as a gold sink. still lets me StW and play out units.

@James’s turn!


#12

Vandy’s fetch ability causes her to tap, so ou can’t attack with her as well unfortunately!


#13

Sigh. I was so good about that in my previous turn, too.

I’ll have to redo the whole turn since my reshuffle is affected. I can do that tonight, it’s too exhausting to work through on mobile.


#14

All fixed, Argo is alive and I have five cards in hand.

No cards, no problem. I was scared of a meta after he goes hall - but no Vandy, no meta.


#18

Geiger only has 3 ATK, so he’s 1 damage short of killing Jandra (note that Drakk’s midband doesn’t work on heroes).


#19

Fixed. Fargo dead helping with Jandra, tech I still up


#20

You do realize Tiny Basilisk can hit Jandra, right? Unstoppable means it can ignore tech 0 patrollers, not that it has to.

Edit: please let me know if I’m stepping out of line here.
