CAPS 2017: Barrelfish ([Finesse]/Present/Law) vs. Shadow-Night-Black ([Balance]/Growth/Finesse)

Not a judge but pretty certain you don’t need to reshuffle just for having an errant hero in your summary

Also you must be a software developer to comment your Midori’s existence, eh? :grinning:

No reshuffle needed.

The list of actions is the authority for what you attempted to do. If that is legal, and the summary is wrong, we just correct the summary and move along. Note that the list of patrollers is considered part of the actions list.

Tiny Basilisk is unattackable and unstoppable by tech 0 units. (Cannot be attacked by tech 0 units and can ignore tech 0 patrollers when attacking.)

Might need to adjust your attack target! :wink:

Good catch. Broke Tech III instead and redrew.

I think you’re floating one gold too many.

Also correct. Forgot to edit that part.

What he said.

EDIT, @Barrelfish, forgot I had a MoLaC alrady in play (Doh!)

@Barrelfish my turn should now be legal, (and much like the original now I remember the fake Midori I somehow forgot to remove from my spreadsheet)

Okay, third time is the charm. Next turn I am gaurnteed to have a haste unit (unless he breaks tech 1 and breaks tech 2/my tech lab or has no haste units in play), so MoLaC will activate and from there it is clean sailing. If he manages both of the above, I can’t see how he also breaks tech 3, so I have 5/6 of just dumping Guargam, which should also just end the game.

I was kind of hoping you would forget about MoLaC

Just need to defend his last few turns, Only playable cards in hand are the Fencers, one need to activate MoLaC, the other might as well kill Bigby to prevent further Injuctions, as he or River can just side line them If I patrol with them. Teching in 2 Artisian Mantis, as in a drawn out game I have a serious advantage, so anything that can prevent him from chipping me out will help greatly. Midori is the most hp I can put out as a defender (only one hero due to no Tech 2), so he is patrolling. The hp from SL doesn’t help much, nor the extra card from Tech, but making Barrelfish pay extra if he wants to target him with Tricycleoids might make a lot of difference. Next turn Arg can fill my board again if Midori dies, and if Midori doesn’t, I have a 9 attack flier to base race with. The main question I have is do I build a hero’s hall. It would make 2 more of my draws dead (my wandering mimics, which might be a dead draw if he kills my tech 2 again anyway), but would all but gaurentee I have a patrol zone next turn.

That’s GG! @EricF Thanks for a fun game. I never realized how much Princess Bride potential this deck has.

I’m not sure how this deck should best handle MoLaC. Although the fact that you played it and instantly got 3 runes on T5 but couldn’t actually activate until T8 gives me hope that the “play lots of hasty guys” strategy could work. Maybe I should have base-raced you instead of going for tech buildings.

yeah, This deck can have trouble activating MoLaC, only hasty units are Fencers and Wandering Mimics (who still need Fencers…) so I’ve had a couple of games now where I can only guarantee 2 runes per deck cycle, unlike the Anarchy Strength version, which leads me floundering in the wind. Once MoLaC hits killing tech 1 is very important against my deck, Tech 2 only if you are using hasty units yourself (or just the tech lab, waste my turns and money), but a base race is a good idea (I only just teched the mantis to stop that idea)

Very fun game! Thanks for playing!
