What is the absolute fastest you can deal 20 damage to your opponent’s base?
There are some rules to make it more interesting. There are also 2 versions, “As Player 1” and “as Player 2”.
As Player 1:
- After your first turn, your opponent will always play and patrol a 1/1 rabbit mercenary patroller, but otherwise does not do anything or have any board or buildings. The Merc will patrol wherever you wish. Only 1 Merc will ever exist at a time, if for some reason you don’t want to kill it.
As Player 2
- your opponent will always play and patrol a 1/1 rabbit mercenary patroller, but otherwise does not do anything or have any board or buildings. The Merc will patrol wherever you wish. Only 1 Merc will ever exist at a time, if for some reason you don’t want to kill it.
- You may steal the opponent’s floating gold, using the appropriate spells/abilities of course.
- If you want to steal something using Community service, you can assume it will always work and get whatever thing you wanted. Limitations of the opponent having only 3 possible spec combinations still apply.
- The goal is in the fewest total actions, get 20 damage on your opponent’s base.
- You may select the cards that you draw to optimize your damage, but used cards still goto discard.
- Actions are counted in discrete game terms, meaning everything that results from the player initiating an action is 1 action. leveling a hero 1 step is 1 action. Leveling a hero the last step to maxband, triggering a maxband effect, is still only 1 action. So leveling zane from 5 to 6, triggering the maxband effect and killing the opposing merc would still all be 1 action. Playing a spell is 1 action, even if it has multuple effects. Playing a unit or hero is 1 action. Attacking is 1 action.
