[XCAPS21] Round 2: charnel_mouse [Law]/Fire/Growth vs Bomber678 [Bashing]/Present/Strength

@Bomber678 My turn to play some jank. Have fun, dude.

P1T1

Starting hand: 5

Building Inspector
Spectral Aven
Bluecoat Musketeer
Traffic Director
Lawful Search

Thoughts

Bomber’s deck:

  • Default Tech II plan is probably Present, but Temporal Distortion presents some interesting options with Bashing II that don’t require choosing that spec: not the most efficient units, but versatile. Kind of like combining it with Garth’s fetch.
  • The threat of Present II might make it worth hanging onto Jail. Looking at facing some pretty tough defenders early on, too. Arrest helps with that a bit, but maybe worth taking Injunction / damage spells / Polymorph early, too? Or keeping Porkhand Magistrate?
  • Now! helps Bashing and Strength, too, by giving them haste.
  • Most dangerous early cards are Argonaut, Birds, maybe Thunderclap, anything with sparkshot. Aven can somewhat deal with Birds, but Neutral spells pop it at resource parity. I might need to look at Jaina or Ember Sparks, either normally or via Jurisdiction.

Lots of things to worry about in late-game.

My deck:

  • I like the look of starting with cheap Lobbers, between that and cheap Blue units I should have a nice set-up for Growth II. I need to watch out for Geiger / Sentry / Ocelot for sparkshot, though.

For now, I just want Building Inspector down to make Bomber’s Turn 2 difficult.

P1T3

Starting hand: 5

Lawful Search
Building Inspector
Lobber
Jail
Arrest

Thoughts

Lobber + maxband Bigby gets me the kill on Rook, is that worth it? Saves me worrying about protecting Newsman this coming turn, I suppose, so it can safely go in Squad Leader against Older Brother, outside of Spark + Timely Messenger. Alternatively, I take Lawful Search, maybe draw the other Lobber, otherwise midband and get some cheap additional blockers down. I’ll give it a shot, got to learn how to use Lawful Search some time.

I’d like to stash Arrest here, but I think I’m better off playing Building Inspector as a means to delay my reshuffle, since that hampers Bomber’s teching up in the process. I doubt I’ll be on the offensive next turn to make use of Arrest anyway. It does mean I’m giving up the Jail, so I might get into trouble against Present II, but Bomber’s reshuffle is two turns away, so I’ve got a while to set up myself. If I have no better options, then Bigby can maxband and draw, to maximise my chances for a good first Tech II draw.

Think

Well I’m spending a lot of gold here, but he’s spending a lot of cards. Nice redraw though, good to get immortal out (and I know he has no community service, or any other tech cards, since he has only reshuffled once).

P1T4

Starting hand: 3

Spectral Aven
Traffic Director
Manufactured Truth

Thoughts

Present was expected. Hyperion I don’t think I care about, Tricycloid is bad if it appears before I’ve set up. Warp Gate Disciple, I suppose I can copy Traffic Director? Immortal I’m not sure about, as long as I can set up soon it can’t grind me down too much. I might even be able to Arrest it, if Bomber’s not careful.

Anything cool I can pull off with my remaining 2 gold? I could sideline the Brother to let Building Inspector trade with Brick Thief, or I swing with Bigby and trade it with Older Brother, no Scavenger bonus. Alternatively, I sit tight and maxband Bigby to draw a card. I’ll go with taking out Older Brother and maxbanding afterwards, saves me cards.

Perfect, I can Arrest the Immortal if I don’t draw Injunction. I was thinking of teching Judgement Day to make set-up easier with Lobbers afterwards, but there’s less point with an Immortal out. I’ll take Polymorph to try and kill it, instead.

Hmm, is Rook there to slow me down, or is Bomber going for an Earthquake? He has been whittling my tech buildings down. Maybe it’s worth me copying the Brick Thief to patch one of them up, then. MoLaC and Insurance Agents first, though. Teching in Censorship Council, if the game lasts until I draw it then I’ll urgently need to lock Bomber down.

Chronofixer? OK. The Temporal Distortion is a little scary, since it lets Bomber get around the Injunction I just drew if he’s willing to sacrifice the Immortal in the process. He’s about to reshuffle, so he probably is. It gives him a Hyperion or a patrolling Immortal at best, though, so it probably doesn’t matter.

I’m not sure what he’s stashed here… it could be another injunction, or it could be something else important, like a lobber. I think aiming for tech 3 might not be the worst idea, however… I can’t chump block forever. I have to think of something fast, like killing bigby somehow.

Yeah I’m conceding. I don’t want to play against molac with no answer. Boring.

That’s fair. This deck has a ton of cheap units and draw options, and ways to lock out responses, so I’m not sure how yours should stop MoLaC happening.

Yeah honestly I think the model stuffed this one up. Bashing as p2? What was it thinking?

Bashing has the least available data, so it’s the spec most likely to cause hiccups. Not great to be on the receiving end of that, of course.
