Don’t really get the idea behind my deck, doesn’t seem much synergy. In fact there “anti-synergy” including Past without the Purple starter. No Battle Suits to buff Seers/Stewardess, no Tinkerer/Time Spiral to manipulate runes for Past Tech II.

His Finesse-Blue looks pretty decent, two good specs and a more solid starter than monocolour Blue. My guess is he heads for a Garrison-Sergeant engine.

Think my best best is to try to take advantage of fliers. So start sinking $s into Rook for possible Earthquake, and plan for Past Tech II using Seers for time rune tricks.

(On this turn initially thought I could Grappling Hook the Brick Thief then kill Oni with midband Rook – before seeing that Brick Thief is resist 1. Good reason to play these matchups to pick up less familiar stuff !)

Rather than try setting up a Rememberer engine, am just teching in the cheap Past units (Shimmer Rays, Golgort) to leave $$ to rush for Tech III. In response to his Truth tech choice, am teching in Sickness as a way to pop 2 illusions.
