Not sure it was worth using the sword this way, but I’m feeling pretty good right now. Cleared the field, 2 heroes out, first Tech 2 on the board. Disease is going to kill my birdies dead (probably some sort of Orpal maxband shenanigans). Glad I teched Degray, hopefully that will deal with a skeleton horde (and the birds, but whatever).

Well GG. Rematch?

Sure, good game! This definitely feels like a matchup with significant first-player benefit. I was about to bring out Degrey to deal with the skeletons I was assuming you’d summon…sure, my birdies would die too, but sacrifices must be made for JUSTICE!

In the discord @FrozenStorm mentioned Black vs White being a match-up very dependent on going first.

Yea I goofed that, I was mis-remembering my MMM series with Bob199. See the spreadsheet for links, but it was actually about the most even matchup tested: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1kznu5QLzxHzeVUJ3PIk4HBGcBOLVHnws48ael5xvbJc/edit#gid=0

As long as he doesn’t Grapple Gorgon around, I’m in a good spot. I should be alright even if he does.

Yeah, I knew that Grave was going to die. On the other hand, you killing the Scavenger gave me JUST enough gold to do this…
