Birds should do. They are really good against Nullcraft, and token hate (Stewardess, Discord) hurts a lot less than with Necromancy. Yet I still pick Garth as last choice for staple BCs and Garth himself - maxband and card-free token spam. I hope bansa will play around LB, 'cause I'm not teching it until late in the game !

Scariest thing would be Mythmaking + Galina, my Tech I units are not cost effective against her… I really asked for trouble… can’t really come up with a good option

Uh ? This means either a terrible draw or bansa's up to something on next turn. With Vandy patrolling as SQL, and Demon II out, I suspect Terras Q + Discord. Maybe Prynn has some support as well, as Origin Story is a good way to get rid of birds and two-living heroes. What's good is: all 3 heroes can deal with Terras Q (squirrel, vines and Doom Grasp). So maybe he considered that has backup plans… One squirrel should be enough for now; at worst I can draw throught my deck with Garth to find it.


#13

You had 1 Wisp last turn, now you have 2. Should be 1? You had 3 in hand, after Worker and Bone Collector. Should be discarding 1? Did you move the rune to BC?


#14

Wisp is patrolling, the one behind is a typo. BC has a rune from BA. And for some reason I paid for the worker but did not actually move the card to worker. So I discard 1, rs, draw 3, and have 9 workers instead of 8.

Sorry for these multiple mistakes, thanks for pointing them out. Editing my turn accordingly (including redrawing hand)

Having no polymorph nor MoLaC is a huge issue. well, let’s deal with it the hard way. I considered midbanding Rook to dispose with River and wall TerrasQ off with tokens, but I feel better off with it away. I could also destroy Demon II but with River out, I’m pretty sure to trigger MoLaC as soon as next turn, if ever I draw it, and it should win straight especially if I boost birds before they attack.

GG WP! @FrozenStorm


#18

GG ! I’m glad to see that birdies took you off guard, as it sort of was my plan all along.


#19

Terras Q is 15/15, not 12/12, so not sure what happened here…


#20

Max Garth dealt the 3 other damage :slight_smile:
