Weird map, and almost a mirror matchup! Boot Camp is gonna be obnoxious here, along with Cadets. Sparring Partner is a huge exploit, and I need to either be first on the board or else have a way to deal with it, which I don’t. Birds are a good way to push forward over Sparring Partner here, so that might be a better pre-emptive move. Right here, I have to put stats on the board that will let me powerhouse through whatever board Bomber puts on. Snapback answers Rook, and gives me a potential rune on both Sensei and Rook (or just a rune on Rook, although this is also vulnerable to Snapback)

glhf @Bomber678!

Not you again.

I can Sensei’s Advice to get free kills on Smoker and Sensei, or I can Safe Attacking to trash a card from my deck. I like the latter better. I don’t have a good follow-up play that doesn’t stop me from building tech 1, but I can at least play Smoker?

Thinking

Neither of us achieved a hero kill. Still, I’m a bit concerned he’s about to start buffing rook. I don’t think I want to snapback next turn though… and I don’t know if I want to build tech 2. We’ll see how this goes.

Sparring Partner for 1, Sensei’s Advice for 1, Grappling Hook Primus to Lookout and kill it for free with Sensei. 4 more gold to midband Rook, kill Onimaru, Rook to 6. Worker Snapback I guess, Flagbearer seems too valuable? Nah, I gotta just keep Snapback and make Bomber play around Flagbearer. It doesn’t stop Sparring Partner anyhow. It’s a lot of cards, but I want to get to a point where I can be ahead enough to safely stockpile runes.

I really have no idea how to deal with mono white. I decided against snapback this turn because either other hero is just as scary, and I have no units in hand next turn. I think boot camp may have been a poor choice. I’ll head for discipline tech 2 and hopefully play a hero based strategy once I’m there.

Hmm hmm hmm. Sensei boosts Rook, Rook kills Rambasa, Spar kills Sensei, summon Spar, maxband Rook, “Ready” Spar (rune), “Ready” Spar (rune). Rook is naturally vulnerable to Snapback, but I’ve got enough forward momentum that I can protect Rook. Begin the Sparring Partner engine! Then I’ll throw in Barbarbarians because I can get the engine rolling with them.

@Bomber678’s turn!

:degrey:: Objection!
:arrow_heading_down: → Put a +1/+1 rune on a friendly unit or hero that doesn’t have a +1/+1 rune.
So SS bruce can’t rune himself twice.

Map ability, not Sparring Partner ability. :slight_smile: I pay 2 to ready SP, then use the map ability instead of readying SP, to put a +1/+1 rune on it.

Hmm, should I have double-teched Earthquake? I can break this patrol if I go Sensei’s Advice and lose Sensei, sending Rook to the backline to bust up Tech 1. That’s 6 gold +1 for worker. 1 gold remains. Alternately I could sit tight and Sparring Partner the Sensei up, Rook and Sensei kill SQL and Elite. Bird’s Nest goes up, I have 5 gold to play with, building my Sparring Juggernaut up past the range where Rambasa kills it outright. Or maybe I boost Rook up to 5 ATK, that seems like a good thing to establish.

Ehh I can either kill tech 1 or sparring partner. I think if I do it this way, he’s very unlikely to kill my tech 1, so I can easily snapback and tech up. Hopefully that will get me ahead, but I reckon he’s teching up next turn, so… probably not.

This is… a little less bad? Still pretty bad. He’s probably going to buff his birds this turn and lay down heavy reinforcements.

brave knight costing 2 would be broken, imo. 1 less float?
