Random Map/Deck Bonanza: YoungBuck and FrozenStorm

@FrozenStorm pointed out that I cant rebuild Tech 2 due to that stupid injucntion, so it appears im sunk

GG! Man, tought doing Mirror blue starts from player 2 position. Not sure what I could have done better except taking a hero out earlier, but seems so risky

Also didnt help that you had the perfect 1-2 combo of injucntion and Orpal to literally wipe out any patrol I had, and Plague spitters to take away any big units I could lay down. Maybe Hooded earlier? Even then, I dont know if that would have bought me much

Ill reroll here shortly!

@FrozenStorm you forgot about this poor mirror token who was saved from death by Macciatus and boosted to a 1/2 by his stint in the Army.

Have to skip tech 1, telegraphs me a little bit, but I’m not too concerned about it. I don’t think Blue starter will easily compete with a Metamorph threat complete with Birds XD I’ll probably take the buff on Vandy next turn over attacking

Jeez he goes all in on cards just to stop Vandy threat, Rook’s decently safe here but could get killed by Hook or Advice, still worth it to get the birds down though even if he dies, and to get the base damage with Pillage in case I want to set up an earthquake. I also want to delay the cycle, just to allow for some reactive techs next turn (Metamorphosis, Earthquake, Tech 2s, Sharks are all on the table right now, depends on what he wants to do).

Going all-in to metamorph Zane next turn, if I get free speech’ed I guess I’ll go to tech 2 and win there XD
[/details]

Could try to put up a fight, but I can see the metamorph coming and I have no answers

GG man! This map was pretty boring haha

This matchup was lopsided, but the map doesn’t really add much to playing standard (I don’t think it would change the base game much to always play with this rule, you can “rest” to get stronger after attacks essentially, but it adds confusion for a new player)

Ok new matchup below, I think Rich Earth looks purettty strong on this map o_0

Workers cost 1 with Rich Earth and this map in play. http://codexcarddb.com/card/rich_earth

So definitely makes sense, though the “Workers are now free” printing on the card directly contradicts his rule. I don’t know about you, but “Free” definitely doesnt mean “discounted” where I come from

Editted my turn to reflect rule

I believe the official ruling/explanation is that map cards apply after all other effects. So Rich Earth lowers the cost to 0, then the map card increases it to 1.

I suppose it all fits together then, but still take exception to “free” when it isnt free. The card should read “reduces the cost of workers by 1 g”. I realize this is literally the only situation where that would happen, but If I have a coupon for a free big mac, and then maccas decides to increase the price of a big mac by 50 cents after I got the coupon, do I have to pony up two quarters for that delicious burger?

No, I believe in that situation you would get the big mac for free.

Haha well burgers on me next time then friend!

My rant was purely grammatical, the rule makes perfect sense. I just like to argue :slight_smile:
