Not the hand I’d have chosen to start with. Lobbers + Grave on T3 sounds OK though.

Not facing Grave’s sparkshot changes everything ! Else, I’d have had no way to secure Graveyard 100% except giving off 2 lvls with Jaina.

Double Lobber and no Deteriorate might be the worst draw ? I guess I should've sacrificed Jaina, so my graveyard wouldn't bloat this soon. I can summon Garth and play StW but using neither topband nor grave sounds ill. Skipping worker is worse though… I just hope I won't get a double-fencing punition.

His max damage to a hero next turn is 4 from 2 lobbers I am pretty sure - if he tech’d both lobbers. He could do 5 with a bloodlust on a PB rogue and a lobber, or an Ember Sparks - but then I should pull ahead with Fencers next turn as he will have not much board left. So, I think the SQL quince is safe.


#10

Oh, well, Garth was supposed to be in SQL for this very reason :confused: dunno what we are supposed to do in this situation @FrozenStorm ?


#11

@Marto did not have Garth listed on his board and it is very reasonable to assume he would have been patrolled somewhere, with SQL being the most likely position. His thoughts spoiler (which has not been edited) suggests as much.

@James it is customary on the forums to ask an opponent who has omitted a card (unit/hero/building/etc) from his/her board summary where that unit was intended to be before revealing information about your intended turn.

I think the reasonable thing to do here is have @Marto edit his P1T3 post to slot Garth into it as he intended, and have James re-do his P2T3 (including re-drawing his T4 hand). @James lmk if you need help with any of that, usually you can “Undo” on the spreadsheet a couple times to back up your draw.


#12

another thing, oni can’t be in tech after attacking. afaik he shoudl be lvd up to get readiness.


#13

Shouldn’t Marto discard 2 on T3 after Worker, STW and Lobber?


#14

Legion is quite right. I guess we should redo the whole thing from P2T2, then ?

Also, I should indeed discard 2, rs, and draw 4, that’s also right >< this 2 weeks break didn’t do any good to my googlesheet abilities…


#15

@Legion you are correct, but not having caught it and having other stuff to sort out at this point, I don’t feel as if we should unroll for the P2T2 patrol mistake.

@bansa Marto had a techn draw and started his turn w/ 6 cards, so his count is accurate


#16

He had 4 card in hand before tech draw


#17

You are correct, that is my bad! @Marto please redraw your rs with only 2 and not 3


#18

Ah sorry! I think I just skimmed the patrol and seeing no Garth there my mind registered him as “not patrolling”. Sorry also RE the Oni patrol - what I will do is just omit my Tech draw at the start of my T3 - this assumes Marto would still choose to kill him rather than do something completely different, but I get no bonus. Is that reasonable?


#19

@James I think that would be a reasonable concession to offer for the honest mistake, yea


#20

Ok, sorry again for the mistakes which were largely mine!

Thoughts

I got nuttin’. I guess I could set up Big Q for some spicy fencers. He COULD kill him by maxing Garth and double lobbering, to which I would double fencer his Garth… but what about the resurrect? Maybe a BC - it would block me. However, he might not max his Garth due to Snapback fear. Then again, the value of max garth is the resurrect really, and even if I could snapback next turn I would be in a bad spot. I guess I could tech up and play a hero. Hero dies to two lobbers, and he plays something else or bigs up garth or techs up. I have more to show for it though.
