[Casual] Nekoatl [Discipline]/Fire/Truth vs bansa [Feral]/Fire/Necromancy

Should Sensei be in backline since he attacked Tech I or Tech I at 3 HP?

Actually, I forgot you still had a hero in play, with that in mind I would not have attacked the Tech I but instead had the Sensei buff Grave and have Grave kill Jaina, so my board should instead look like this. Sorry for the errors.

Thoughts

Wasn’t sure what Martial Mastery would produce, so I didn’t count on getting a Tech I up this turn when making my tech choices. But my opponent doesn’t know that. Was very surprised to see Lich’s Bargain in hand with Calamandra in play and no Heroes Hall. Maybe she was meant to die? In any case, I’m glad I picked Argagarg as her replacement.

No worries!

So close, and yet so far. At least I can do a lot of damage. Taking out the Skeleton instead of the Zombie in case Garth midbands and tries to dig for something nasty like, say, Doom Grasp, for example.

dude, this is huge. grave has 2 dmg, jaina has 2 attack. sensei only gives 1 armor. they would trade, grave does not midb here.

Savior Monk healed Grave to full during my upkeep.

Not sure how I flubbed that, but good catch. Turn ends up being basically the same, but without the Tech II.

Teching in tech II cards, so I need to finally get around to constructing a Tech II building.

I surrender here. Great martial mastery play! Let me know if you want to go again, I will pick something different.

Sure, I think my build has potential and would like to explore it further. Feel free to take T1 if you want.

Ok let me try [Law/Peace]/Finesse

Target locked on Building Inspector. No upgrade removal, deploying upgrade. The question is, will he spend $4 to pump Onimaru and secure a kill without a trade? If he does, he can’t worker and build a Tech I next turn, but if he techs in spells it wouldn’t be a bad play. If not for Snapback, I’d be rather frightened of early Art of War spam. Well, there’s still a lot of ways this could go wrong, but I think this is my best bet.

This, I was not expecting. I guess he’s planning to use the Aven to kill Jaina; not a bad plan. The Musketeer is surprisingly threatening as well, threatening 1 damage and avoiding a solo kill from Jaina both on attack and on defense. The real question is which cards he teched, as Both Boot Camp and Elite Training don’t jive well with either Spectral Aven or Bluecoat Musketeer.

Going for Tech I units was overly optimistic. I’ll probably need to use Fire magic to stop the aggression.

Okay, I’ve botched this pretty badly by not reading a few cards carefully enough, so I’ll go ahead and resign it here. Nice use of Aven and Musketeer, btw. Rematch?
