[XCAPS21] Round 2: dwarddd [Truth]/Disease/Present vs flagrantangles [Ninjitsu]/Anarchy/Future

Thank you Frozenstorm for clearing that up, that’s sort of what i felt but didn’t want to be biased by the fact that I had drawn a good hand!

GG @flagrantangles , I think i might overrule the model and say as P1 i had some advantage here but who knows, difficult to tell from one match ofc

Since we have time would u care to go again with player order switched or even switched decks and order (as in preserve the ‘match up’ the model gave is but try the other role)?

Don’t forget to tag me :wink:

Dealing with illusions does look rough for Player 2 here, Calypsos make sense but don’t help against non-patrollers.

@dwarddd if flagrant doesn’t want to run it back would you start a casual thread for me to take a stab at the p2 side of this matchup? My gut would have told me just looking at the two decks that p2 was favored so I want to try it out to see where my gut might be off

@dwarddd I’ll gladly keep playing but for the sake of knowledge gathering, Frozenstorm is probably better suited to actual learning/dissection. That said, I will basically keep playing until people get tired. I have a very high threshold for playing games in general, even when losing.

hrnnn hard to see a defence that both trades well and keeps a hero alive, oh well I’ll pick trades well, although they might just kill the director here but eh he only cost me one, this way they have to sensei boost him whereas in SQL Zane just kills

Grappling hook costs Zane 1g, it’s why i didnt mind patrolling the mirror, you have the gild if you still want to hook?

right i made two sorta related mistakes last turn, i forgot to do my tech draw despite writing in that i did it and so didn’t actually make a worker only paid for it… the turn as you can see it won’t change apart from i would have had 8 workers at the end of the turn as i didn’t skip workering just forgot to move a card across - i hope that’s okay
