After an hour, I finally manage — finally! — to get Ebbflow Archon in hand, and with Vir I throw it on top of my deck so that I’ll have enough money to play it next turn, because Slow Time Generator has limited me to four gold and one extra I had from the patrol zone or something.
For the first time in three or four turns, my Tech III survives, and out comes Ebbflow Archon to bounce five cards on the other side. “Huh,” I think. “Maybe I should actually bounce my own unit I have in play, so that Second Chances will trigger when Ebbflow Archon dies from fading during upkeep.” So I do. In the meanwhile, there is a sort of determined refusal to concede in the face of Ebbflow Archon, despite Slow Time Generator.
The next turn, @Jeremetroid plays Sacrifice the Weak in a desperate last-ditch attempt to rob me of my sole remaining unit, but then Ebbflow Archon is all “If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you can possibly imagine,” which may have been a little overdramatic, but it did cause him to respawn with all seven time runes and also no exhaustion on my turn.
“Oh, right. I concede after all.”
