CAFS 2016: Castanietzsche (Mono Blue) vs StrixVaria (Mono Red)

One last nit then; your base takes 1 when you kill Drakk :stuck_out_tongue:

I’ll probably be able to pick this back up early tomorrow. No more turns from me tonight.

You can’t patrol the Flagstone Spy since you exhausted it with Boot Camp.

I don’t think I’m getting through both those heroes, though. I may have finally run out of steam.

Edited, thanks !

Sorry for the delay. I didn’t forget; just been busy. Looks like I found a way to kill both heroes, but not actually put damage on your base.

@EricF

For ercif only

here Casta has forgotten about both spy’s mandatory effects. can i point that out or that would be spectator meddling?

Casta might not have forgotten, but it wasn’t specifically mentioned in the turn order. Flagstone Spy also has you look at your opponent’s hand of cards as well as stealing the gold.

That’s lethal you have on the board. Hm…let’s see if this lets me hold on.

Get 10 Gold (10)
Quince transforms the remaining Mirror into a Spectral Aven (8)
Both real and mirrored Spectral Avens suicide on your Tower, destroying it and dealing 2 damages on your base @10
Flagstone Spy A, Flagstone Spy B abd mirrored Flagstone Spy B deal 10 damages to your base, destroying it

gg ! :slight_smile:
Mono-Blue is very slow so I think you could go with a slower strategy than you did (almost only spells and Tech I) and still wipe my board almost every turn. But very tight and interesting game, thanks for the match !

Oh there were plenty of misplays on my side. That was my first time trying to go super, super early aggressive with Red at the cost of teching, and I’ve definitely learned a bit about how it works. Good game :slight_smile:
