[Casual] charnel_mouse [Law]/Fire/Growth vs Dreamfire [Ninjitsu]/Balance/Necromancy [Ninjisu]/Necromancy/Peace

GLHF, @Dreamfire!

Starting hand: 5

Bluecoat Musketeer
Jail
Lawful Search
Manufactured Truth
Arrest

Thoughts

That’s an awkward first hand. If I want to tech up and play Spectral Aven next turn, then, I’d only have whatever I play this turn on defence. That’s either the Musketeer or a hero. Or the Jail, I suppose; Dreamfire could play a hero, but his heroes aren’t cheap combat heroes, so maybe that would go OK. Nature Reclaims can trash it later, but that uses up a tech choice. Do I want to be workering Musketeer if I’m going for cheap unit spam? Eh, I’ll have better stuff to play.

Nature Reclaims also hits Might of Leaf and Claw, so I’ll be shooting for Blooming Ancients. I’m not sure what to do about Dreamfire’s air options yet.

Jail is annoying, but Garth is an ok answer. Might as well play Smoker anyway though, 1g to thin the deck by a card is an ok deal.

Against that deck, possibly not very much!

Thoughts

OK, non-patrolling Aven should be pretty good against those specs, at least until Tech II unlocks Dreamfire’s own air options. The problem with playing Aven is that Dreamfire has exactly enough gold for worker + Tech I + midband Garth to destroy the Jail for free if I play the Aven. That lets me kill Garth if I draw at least one Lobber, however, so he might not want to take the risk. I think I still go for Aven, in that case.

My mid-game problem will be the efficient blockers, namely Inverse-Power Ninja and the Necromancy I units, especially since I’m delaying playing Bigby here. Skeletons could also snowball if I’m not careful, as my main crowd control options are Fire spells, with late alternatives in Molting Firebird, Firehouse, and Blooming Elm to a lesser extent. Or Judgement Day, of course, which is nice given Insurance Agents and bad given Blooming Ancients as my main win condition. I suppose Hotter Fire sort-of works as a counter to Skeleton Lords’ boost to Skeleton stats? Hopefully I don’t have to deal with that.

Porkhand Magistrate as the worker, since I want cheap units for the Growth engine.

Breaking Jail would leave Garth open to a kill by Aven+Lobber, so I’ll live with it for now. I guess Hoodies are my best (only?) answer to Aven, so I’ll tech both.
I don’t want to worker Flagbearer against Fire/Growth. And even though Safe Attacking could be fun with skeletons, I think I’m more likely to actually want Hook at some point.

No worries, easily done.

Definitely want to tech up next turn, so I’ll tech some Ninja stuff before the reshuffle. No need to tech Glorious Ninja since I can just fetch it with Garth whenever.
I’ll probably want a Nature Reclaims at some point, with MoLaC, Hotter Fire and Censorship all available to charnel_nouse.

Thoughts

Ooh, that’s a nice Technician draw. I can just tech up, attack with Lobbers, and stash the Insurance Agent. I think I worker Reputable Newsman over Arrest: I’m more worried about beefy units than I am about hero spells here, unless Dreamfire realises how weak I am against Lich’s Bargain in the short term.

If I attack with everyone, Garth can midband to kill Bigby, but Dreamfire then only has 1 gold for backing him up after building a Tech II. Or he maxbands for a heal, but then he’s wasted Garth’s maxband ability on a low-tech unit.

Inverse-Power Ninja is an annoying unit to get past, but it’s still worth making it the insurance target over my Lobbers, even with the Lookout penalty.

Thoughts

That’s a nice board, but I think I’m fine to disable Tech II here. I can’t quite destroy the Tech I, but I can kill Garth, and set up to start drawing with Bigby. I’m fine for an all-out attack here, no risk of Glorious Ninja wrecking me with the Tech II disabled.

I’m not sure what to tech, but my low hand and Dreamfire not floating suggests I go for Scribe over Tax Collector. Do I want to try going for a Lawbringer Gryphon? Nah, the game will be over before I get two Insurance Agent cycles in. I’ll try a Community Service, see if I can get lucky with Lawful Search. Those Ninjintsu II units are pretty good.

NOTE: I think I might have been better off having the Lobbers take the Tech II down to 1 instead of killing Garth, here: I’d have a better board, and be closer to a double Tech break. Plus, Garth is arguably the least dangerous hero here, outside of Lich’s Bargain. Time will tell how bad a mistake I just made.

I’ll take maxband Sets over the second Glorius Ninja, even though it means leaving the Growth lab standing.

Thoughts

I’m not sure how to deal with Midori here, but unless I switch to Fire II my best best is Flame Arrow. In addition to that, I think I have to take Judgement Day here, to try to partially recover the board. Oh, but I can kill Midori or Setsuki right now! Which one am I more worried about?

  1. Disable Tech I, Lobber #2 kills Aged Sensei, Lobber #1 trades with Midori or Setsuki. Setsuki is probably more dangerous, but is more vulnerable to Fire Arrow later if I kill Midori now. Community Service becomes more of a gamble, I probably want to hit Dreamfire’s Hand. I’m still getting hit by Ninja, Porcupine, and Setsuki, however. Oh, Setsuki’s invisible anyway, right? And charges 1 gold to attack, so I’ve got to go for Midori.
  2. Disable Tech II, Lobber #2 kills Aged Sensei, Lobber #1 trades with Hooded Executioner, and then I’m guaranteed at last a Hooded Executioner from Community Service. I only get attacked by Midori and Setsuki. Dreamfire’s probability teched Fox’s Den Students, and Setsuki’s invisible, so that’s still a lot of building damage coming my way.
  3. Disable Tech I, Lobber #2 kills Aged Sensei, Lobber #1 destroys Tech II. This would be nice if Dreamfire’s board wasn’t so strong already.

It’s a toss-up between 1 and 2, really. I’ll go with killing Midori, he’s worth a lot of gold.

Whoof, I’ll call it there, well played! It hadn’t really occurred to me the Flagbearer would stop me winning off of Ancients.

GG and WP!
Yeah, I recently caught on to Flagbearer as an answer to Growth and Peace and I’ve been getting a kick out of it (worked nicely in my CAMS game against zhav, not so nicely in my game against Frozen).
Did you want to run it back? I feel like I leaned really heavily on Garth, so I might switch him out for Oni.
