IsotopeX (Mono-White) vs Penatronic (Past/Present/Law)

Your turn can’t play out quite that way. The Hardened Mox is trashed as soon as you have a Tech II, so when the Tricycloid arrives the Mox would go away. It’s not a major difference given that it only affects my Tower. If you want to re-do things go ahead, otherwise we can ignore the damage to the Tower.

Whoops! First time I’ve played with the Mox, forgot about the t2 condition. If you don’t mind the take backsides, I’ll redo the order of operations.

Thanks.

The Mox can’t attack the Tower until the Ramabsa it gone, and the Tricycloid killing the Rambasa will wipe out the Mox.

You are correct again. This is what I get for trying to make that correction on the fly. Do you mind if I redo the play again?

I edited it for what I would do given the redo. If you’re not feeling charitable, assume the tricycle is 3/3 and has no more time counters, tower is unhurt.

One last thing…the Entangling Vines on your Argonaut are gone because Rook is gone, so you can attack with it.

Really? I thought since it wasn’t channeling it still stayed in play.

You’re right! It’s better than I thought. I was thinking of the Bird’s Nest. Unfortunately I think, even withot that Argonaut, I haven’t a chance.

I was half hoping you were going to play the birds nest for a double whammy :wink:

Not a single unit in my hand except Smoker. I’m toast.

I guess I don’t need t1 back yet since I have the Argonaut in hand this turn. not my favorite draw, wanted either of the cards still in my deck.

"

I redid my turn. I tried to not use information from seeing my new hand, and I don’t think it even mattered.

Prynn can’t use her maximum level ability on heroes. That would be WAY too good.

Doh! I think I confused myself after reading Graves’ ability

fixed my turn.

Ah, that is a big change. And it brings the Argonaut back. :sob: I suspect I’m in a death spiral here, but have fun dealing with Pointy.

I forgot when planning this build that I was supposed to go law t2 first, since Octavian is the least appealing finisher in this spec combo. I hope he didn’t get that sneak past ninja spell this turn. want to float a lot so I have the chance to play something hyperion draws.

"

Pretty lame turn for me. Can’t believe I haven’t swung more with this Argonaut

Edit: shit I forgot I have to rebuild t1

It’s safe to assume you always rebuild the a Tech building even if it’s not explicitly stated.

Ugh, that Censorship Council is annoying, and I have no real way to deal with it except MAYBE Versatile Style. Next turn I have options, but of course I can only use one…a Snapback if he levels Bigby is attractive, or Entangle something, or the School to make Pointy invisible.

"

So me getting to spend the $2 last turn on t1 is kosher?

Edit: I’m just going to assume no, you’ve already given me a few redos.

I’m not sure I understand your question. Rebuilding Tech buildings is always free, it just doesn’t get completed until the end of the turn.

Oh, I thought that it cost gold to rebuild.

Well I already did my turn assuming I still can’t play t1… probably wouldn’t change it.

I should have stashed origin story, and I don’t think I’m doing myself that many favors by not tiering up faster and giving him time to get his feet under him. this strategy needs chump blockers, wish I had put insurance agent or scribe in sooner.
