Casual: DiscoCokkroach (Law/Peace/Truth) vs FrozenStorm (Balance/Feral/Growth)

Nope. Against Blue (which does not have any haste, but DOES have Arrest, which only works on patrollers) it is wise to avoid patrolling against an empty board :wink: Unless you’re going to judgement day me again, in which case I guess I’d get patrol bonuses, but I’ll take that gamble

THE TERMINATOR STRIKES BACK! Ugh this is getting to be a pretty boring board stall… Luckily I can stay patient, I’m still dominating control of the board and Cala can kill that tech 3 over and over while I spend gold on Tech 3, Surplus and Midori if necessary. He’d have to raze his Surplus to get detection, in which case I’ll be fine.
[/details]

Yo, I totally forgot to rebuild my Tech III, but you attacked it as if I did, anyway, so thank you!

Yeah, so few cases in which it’s actually optimal NOT to rebuild it, I usually assume people did even if they don’t mention it :wink:

Okay, grabbing some card advantage back, going to mess him up with Feral Strike Moss Ancients next turn unless he goes for Arrest + Suiciding Bigby, in which case Midori will join the party maxbanded to wreck the house. Censorship council doesn’t bother me much, I only need do this discard for Cala trick once more and then the Dinosize will end the game if it can’t get done by alternative means

Note the rulings page on Censorship Council for this turn, and its interaction with Feral Strike (though if the ruling were different, I’d still be okay having Cala kill the Censorship Council, THEN squirrels kill tech 3)

[details=Summary][spoiler]So some dude wearing goggles and purple & green armor blasted through the wall with a bundle of dynamite, then two sharks came out of nowhere, and before I knew it, Flagstone was burned to ashes.

Joking aside, I knew I the goose was cooked.[/spoiler][/details]

I literally laughed out loud at this, very clever!

GG WP, the Judgement day stall almost looked like it was going to work! (It would have, if I had given in to the temptation to worker Forest’s Favor earlier in the game).

Yeah, this was a really good game! I should have tech’d some combat units or something; turtling for Tech III by itself just wasn’t enough. I think I learned a lot, though, and I’ll probably start experimenting with multi-color stuff. Thank you for a great first game of 3v3 Codex! :smiley:

Thank you! It was very interesting, unlike games I have played in the past.

Happy to play more with you anytime, just let me know!

Strategy-wise, I do think a Justice Juggernaut could have done you more favors than Censorship Council, especially since it can survive a Judgement Day with its two lives. But Law usually wants to win at Tech 3, and I think if you’d built a tower sooner (turn 9 or so) it would have worked too!

1 Like

Yeah, I was definitely kicking myself over not building a tower. I was not fully aware of your options and Cala’s easy access to stealth. I also thought that Midori might make an appearance and just fly over everything and/or kill Lawbringer Gryphon if I ever got him out.

Very well played by you, by the way. Mono-green can just eat you alive if you’re not careful, and you definitely kept me in check the entire time.

In hindsight I should probably have abandoned the “win at feral tech 2 + murkwood chump block” plan as soon as the first Judgement day was played, and gone straight to tech 3 right there. I gambled a lot of gold and cards on you not re-drawing Judgement Day and you clearly must have teched 2 of them, and did very well for yourself with that game plan for quite a while there!

IMO you should have teched Free Speech. Your stuff kept getting killed by stealthy Calamandra, while Feral Strike and other nonsense was also happening. A well-timed Free Speech could have given you the window you needed to play the Griffon.

Yeah, I did end up teching Free Speech when I saw that happening, but by that time, it was too late. I learned a very valuable lesson, though: Don’t sleep on stealth!
