Starting hand: 4

Sacrifice the Weak
Thieving Imp
Ardra’s Boulder
Skeletal Archery

Technician draw: 1

Deteriorate

Thoughts

This is potentially a pretty nice turn. Deteriorate SQL, Jandra overpowers to kill Garth, Garth hits Graveyard, 4 gold to bring in a Fencer to destroy Graveyard, and I’ve still got 3 gold to worker and bring in Ardra’s Boulder. Let’s do it. Putting the Boulder in SQL, so the remaining Skeleton archer can’t damage it by itself.

Ahg, was hoping you didn’t hit the Deteriorate, didn’t think I’d lose Garth AND the graveyard… And that Boulder, woof

I’m going to give two free damage on my tech1 there, as there wasn’t really a good reason to attack with topband garth THEN the fencer on my graveyard; Garth could kill the graveyard solo, and fencer could hit whatever.

My Thoughts

Ouchie mama. Well I don’t think I wanna go blood at this point w/ the graveyard down. I’ll probably end up workering the barrow. I think I win on skeleton army, so hoping to get that rolling.

Thoughts

Phew, I was worried Sacrifice the Weak would come out and kill everything. Definitely teching in DeGrey and Morningstar Pass for the Mythmaking bonus and to deal with Skeleton spam, then after that I’ll see whether I want to go for Oathkeeper, standard Tech II units, or damage-free Lich’s Bargains.

Where do I want this Skeleton? A second Lobber kills it regardless, so either Technician or Lookout. Deteriorate and Sacrifice the Weak together would be awful, I think I’d want the extra draw in that case since I have no units in the next hand. Fingers crossed it doesn’t happen, so I can keep Jandra going with a Two Step. Second worst thing that could happen is Doom Grasp.

Starting hand: 4

Sacrifice the Weak
Deteriorate
Two Step
Skeletal Archery

Thoughts

Deteriorate + Two Step gets me just enough damage to kill everything, but can I get split it up well enough? Even better, Skeleton Archery lets me kills the Horror with no losses if I deteriorate it and put Two Step on the Skeleton. The Bone Collector will be painful though, if I Two Step Jandra I have to kill it with Garth and leave him barely alive. Better to Two Step the Fencer to kill it, Jandra can destroy the Tech II by herself anyway.

Not sure what to Tech here, at some point Jandra will die and I need to deal with it. What’s good against Blood II? Barbarbarians and Grapplers both do OK patrolling against Crashbarrows due to their high health, although if I get Morningstar Pass down that’ll help a lot. Oh, Barbarbarians are great with Two Step too, I guess I just go for a Barbarbarian and the other Two Step.

GG WP! I can’t mess with that!

Whiffing turn 3 sucked but I also just straight didn’t consider Mythmaking as an angle. Should have StW’d Jandra on turn 4 instead of teching up.

GG WP! I looked at my patrol a few hours after posting Turn 3 and panicked when I saw Sacrifice the Weak would kill everything. Not as potentially powerful as [Demonology]/Growth/Strength’s legendary rush, but it seems like it might do reasonably well if you can work around Jandra being more vulnerable. I’ll start a new game tomorrow, if you’re up for it?

My initial thought was “just StW Jandra and it all dies”, but in fact she only kabooms your squad if she dies from combat damage. Knowing that and not thinking at all about Mythmaking, I figured it was safer to force her to die by attacking and tech up.

I’m up for another game, yeah, whenever’s good!

I’m honestly surprised you didn’t spend the 1 gold at the start of your turn to draw and see if you just drew DeGrey and won

I didn’t think the chances were high enough if the Technician didn’t get killed first, but I’d have definitely tried if I couldn’t clear the patrol without him.

Ooh, I’d forgotten about the combat damage part. Not quite as fragile as I thought, then. Deteriorate + Lobber on Turn 5 would have still been bad news, though!

Thoughts

I could open with Thieving Imp or Jandra here, but I don’t think it leaves me with great options for Turn 2. FrozenStorm can just block with a hero with no risk of death. I think I’m better off opening with Garth + Skeleton + Haunt, and getting the Graveyard down next turn. Holding onto Jandra, going into Mythmaking in late game may not be unreasonable.

Thoughts

OK, I have 4 damage from Fencers, 4 damage from current board. That’s theoretically enough to clear the patrol, but I probably want Deteriorate as well to preserve more of my board. Thieving Imp and a Skeleton can trade decently well with Horror, so I can Deteriorate the Zombie and have a Fencer kill it, or I can worker in addition to midband River to sit in Squad Leader. I’d be workering Sacrifice the Weak, which sucks, but I don’t see a better option here. Going for Lich’s Bargain + Grounded Guide, let’s see if we can grind out a win by spamming defenders until I can get the virtuoso engine going.

Heroes’ Hall would be nice here, but taking the opportunity to get further ahead in workers seems good to take. I expect Rook to die, so River can come out anyway. If he doesn’t, I can midband him to smack something through the patrol.
