Well what are my win conditions here? I dont have great Tech 3 options, Troq and Max dont have great spells. I guess I go necro? Try to spam Garth maxbands to draw out some units and go corpse catapaults? Really not sure who I win here!
[/details]

Maybe it’s just because I’m new to actually playing Codex, but I expected both players to go for more than 2 workers first turn on this map.

Two already is a bit of a stretch, don’t want to go down on cards too hard

All the workers! I’m just going to try to get tech 2 up asap

I feel like Green starter would be the strongest on this map. Verdant Tree and Rich Earth would be bonkers.

Yeah Green starter would be great! Neutral starter on the other hand… haha

GG! Bonkers map lol

Lol so thats a easy wipe. You are much better at planning blow outs than I am!

I really like this map though, makes an interesting tension between action and rushing higher tech. I feel like it is super hard to anticpate what is coming, as you could keep your tech options random.

Pros: More monies is fun, I like thinned out decks, some super crazy rush strategies

Cons: Not much to say I like this one!

Me too, really fun to jump straight to tech 2 with a thin deck

Next Up:

Map: Big Game Hunters: +2 g each upkeep

Youngbuck’s ([Balance]/ Strength/ Anrachy) vs FrozenStorm’s ([Disease]/ Future/ Peace)

Ill post first turn soon

Hive is redundant, tho, right? nullc is just like a stinger, 1/1. with stampede they all get +3 atk, so 4*5 (4 stimgers+NC)=20. Or am i missing something?

But why do 20 base dmg when you could do 23?!

But actually, Nullcraft cant be the target of buff spells, so stampede wouldnt work for it right?

Stampede isn’t targeting :wink:

And yes it’s overkill, but how often to you get to attack with a Hive directly? :slight_smile:

ikr is not targeting, otherwise wouldn’t have written it as 4 atk :stuck_out_tongue:
Still, 23 dmg in one turn!! omG, imo maps are super absurd but super fun!
