Ah, no rich earth opening. Very sad. What then? His black starter is full of annoying things, but no way to easily deal with heroes early on, which is how I like it. SO - a hero, and probably MP in Scav. Next turn level things up, maybe cast the FF on the hero, keep getting value from the hero until I win. A different unexpected strat - Spore Shambler this turn. Next turn Zane and power him up for a kill on the Imp which is coming, recover a card, hide behind my shambler. Early surprise attacks, delay tech I as I love doing that. What if he plays Jandra? then just defend with a wispy play and tech up into Barons or something I guess. He won’t play Jandra though.

Ya know, I messed up there. I thought about StW but for some reason forgot it did not target. What a fool. I think I just lose now, right? What is my plan now? Come back cards. Zane is always a threat, SA. Defend to a Ship as a victory condition since a rush is now doomed? MoLAC? Well, defence first in any case.

Max Arg saves a card for my defence. What is my game plan? Still tech fast and hard. If I have 10 gold next turn, I could block with a Baron and get up my Tech II, which is good for Zane even if the baron is still around. If he does not kill my Ele, then dinosizing something becomes nice. Which tech? Not growth. Void blockers into tech lab ship? seems good.

Note, your tech 1 is not on your summary.

OK, assuming the other crashbarrow is in his hand - my Treatnt will die to it wherever I put it, so I might as well profit. Nothing in particular I need to draw into atm, but I do need to save up for my tech…!

Fixing turn

I think gold for Imp is missing?

Mirrors are such fragile things. I wanted to tech up, but preventing the crashbarrows seems like a better investment right now!

Or at least preventing a mirror barrow…

Marauder is not a valid target for Vandy’s Maxband, as it can only target tech 1 and 2 units.
