Lets talk in the order:

  1. Skeletal archery leads us not to the assainate, but to the stewardess, who would be very effecient, and also its very slow.
  2. Imp. Seems like slow variant, even if we let him bounce him back via FF, coz 3 cards are 3 cards, but temporal distortion is temporal distortion. Also Imp 2 turns in a raw leads us to the weak presence on the board on turn 3, whiuch leads to the fastest tech2, ehich is bad for us. These past/present trick are hard to counter. Also not to forget about stewardess, who are good with bouncing our T0 3g creatures
  3. Hero + Skeleton seems ok, mostly Vandy, coz vandy leaves him without heroes openings, which leads or to low card count(4 cards) or to big float(boom his tech 1 on turn 3 by mass fencer + max vandy + all vandy’s trash)

@dwarddd’s turn!

Also see: CAWS19 where i was using Past/Present/Peace instead of monopurple and you took two of my lives so i asked for a rematch as P1… and still lost xd
When i think of Nightmare, i think of you beating me with it :wink:

Past will be forecast pretty early here, but if he leans too heavily into countering it i can always switch as Seers are still very useful in the other specs

theyll have to use at least 2 cards to get my tech 1 down i believe, which would be a good trade except DP will just let them get it back… scared of Shadow Blade making my hand lower so i went for Vir over a second unit. the chance of tech break means i might not be able to use a seer by the time i got it out so looks like plasmo is going the slow way

Afk a bit, busy week - 4:39am now and only trying to fall asleep

if i just patrol Neo plexus Vandy could kill them and that’s even with Origin story, but now also for things like shadow blade or more DP they also need to pay extra 2 (and no patrollers for shadow blade, what a counter :wink: )

Main counters to Immortals i can see is appel stomp and meta, meta obvs leading into Appel, for now counter meta because River isnt out and maxed yet, will be interesting to see if they keep Garth for the grab or switch to river for later appels. Teching ready or not as it doesnt need to target (as i write these thoughts i just remembered meta gives readiness…, oh well at least the “ready” of ready or not can help an immortal). Surely from here my massively better economy can win evem against meta madness

Edit: added thoughts as had limited time before

after jav – Can do 6 + 1 + 2(dp) + (3+1soulstone) = 13dmg :(, for 1+1+2 gold

@dwarddd’s turn!

@FrozenStorm seems like i won

TBH, i had to draw 1 card out of 2(dp) out of 4 draw in 14 cards deck. So bad draw for me are 12/14 * 11 / 13 * 10 / 12 * 9 / 11 = 10 * 9 / (14 * 13) = 0.(494505) < 0.5, so i have more, than 50% to win via this play(may be i had other ways)
