Well makes sense to clear his board, waste his gold, cards, and time (am I right ladies). Uhh anyway, next turn I can easily drop taxman and tech up to start making some evil growth plays, or if I need to, I can aggress, but it’ll cost me. Definitely preferable to just sit back and be ahead in tech.

then let’s reset the board :wink:
NOT the place I want to be in against Miracle Growth, but hey…

how very unfortunate he had sharks. But well, he even could have prevented repeated Art of War by MSR + Bombaster/Scorch, but then it would have at least cost an extra card.

But that’s how all-in works. Either you win or you lose…

Think

Hmm, tree is a strong play here. It’s possible they could hit me with something strong. I can’t tell what tech 2 they’re aiming for. I’m guessing Peace…? Maybe I should be pulling detonate soon, in case of garrisons.

well, with these complete different power levels of our tech 2 cards, this one is not a race I can expect to win if I restrict myselft to tech 2 cards only…

Next turn BA + birds or BA + arg & zane and therewith a 6/6 GPT is really frightening…
I really want to tech more than just two cards. I need two Moment’s Peace and at least one gunship in my next cycle :slight_smile:
Just too bad I don’t have a backline flagbearer available, now let’s cross fingers for him not having the BA in hand or for the 20% to draw my singleton Moment’s Peace or 40% if he kills my merfolk.
Also too bad he has a GPT out. Otherwise I would have gambled to float a merfolk prospecting one gold and put the tank on scav in order to at least threaten the gunship next turn… Really NOT a good position to be in against this strong deck.

wait stop that

Straight forward this time.

Post draw: a pity that Midori will die. I had been tempted to play Oni instead of tech 3 in order to be able to cast again moment’s peace together with the gunship next turn. That’s not going to happen now, sadly…

I really don’t understand why Midori is still alive with Zane being available for bomber, but I’ll definitely take it!
Especially with draw 5 out of a deck of 6 with the second moment’s peace and the second gunship in these it finally feels comfortable. I was absolutely convinced that bomber would kill Midori and shark/stampede/dinosize/BA-crush my base next turn.

Oh dear.

@FrozenStorm

Very lucky draws after that the-art-of-war-blunder in the beginning, that you were so easily able to defend.

GG

I look forward to the day this community decides to nerf gunship.

It is like 4 gold too cheap plus the long-range is absolutely unnecessary…
Totally agree!

it’s the obliterate that’s truly egregious. And yeah, too cheap.

I think there’s a lot of nerfs this community broadly agrees on, and absolutely this would be one of them
