I was really hoping you wouldn’t have that spell in hand that turn.

Sigh… no help for it, then, just gotta patiently rebuild. At least he didn’t put the Treant in SQL, I’d have been in real trouble if he had. Guess I’ll build a Tower to hopefully clean up the leftover Birds, though they’ll still be able to hit my buildings, which means one more Earthquake is probably enough to bury me.

Rook’s in lookout so the drain and DG are taxed 1 each, but you have the float so I’ll assume you’re good with that

Hmm perhaps a bit of an invalid game there, I seem to have lost track of Spore Shambler; not even sure where I started operating on a falsely thinned deck

GG WP. Not sure how much of a difference the missing Shambler would have made, but I’m not gonna worry about it. It felt like by far the most balanced of the 3 games to me, though.

I’m out of viable ideas to make this matchup work from my end, so if you want to keep playing, I think one of us should switch decks. If you want to stick with yours, I could switch to an as-yet untested variant on Law/Past with [Law]/Past/Present.

I’m down to play smore, I’ll grab another one from the the “option 3” list: [Ninjitsu]/Anarchy/Future

rolled 35, or shall I just go first?

Haha, seems like every matchup I have with this deck is either facing Balance or Future, makes it very hard to take advantage of buildings/upgrades/ongoings. Ninjas have easy access to flying and stealth, too, as well as haste. Well, at least with this one, I don’t have to worry about overpowered Birds, so maybe I’ll have time to set up some counterplay.

Taking Nether Drain as a precaution against Maximum Anarchy, though I think Sharks are a more immediate threat, so Bone Collector’ll take point. Even with that float, he can’t maxband Zane and summon Sharks next turn, and $2 for $5 would be an excellent value swing in my favor.

Very rough indeed

Thoughts

Hmm, Tech II and a Tower, eh? Leaving either of those up would make things more difficult for me… I think it’s worth using Deteriorate to make breaking them easier. Let’s see… at this point, the biggest threat in his arsenal would be a combo of Speed of the Fox and Hidden Ninja… which I could stop with a Tower, but frankly, if he’s willing to spend $4 and a card to kill a L1 hero, I think I’m okay with that. Plus, I don’t really want a Tower as a long-term resource. Even if I lose a hero, with all these Skeletons I’m collecting, I’m on track for a T5 Lord of Shadows, so I’ll try for that.

Redrew the det, damn that might sink me.

Maybe, but your stall tactics are slowing me down, at least. I had hoped to build my Tech II last turn.

I’m a turn behind, but otherwise things are looking good. Going for Distortions because I predict Garth will be able to fetch… actually, scratch that, I’ll go big and double up on R&D, chances are Geiger will maxband before I draw the second one, and then I can quickly adapt.

Nawp I’ll concede there, GG WP. Whiffing turn 3 hurt pretty bad. I’ll try to start another one tomorrow, this matchup feels to have the opposite problem to the last though XD
