Grave+Sensei is a no-brainer. I’ll patrol in scav to open up the options of midband or HH next turn.

@Bomber678’s turn!

A fortunate pull, and I don’t have Vandy for defence.

Poisonblade Rogue, Jandra, the Negator, Deteriorate

Think

Very strong open from him. Let’s try to take his card count down and slow the cycle. It will either force a decrease in aggression (no card played from hand this turn) or a reduction in cycling (easier for me to regain control of board).
Imp goes in elite here, because it injures grave and forces a midband before his next attack most likely. I have an eye for either defending with Garth or Orpal next turn, and either teching up fast or heroes hall to start picking off his weenies that have a tendency to hang around.

Think

Tough choice here again. I kind of have to bank on no reversal, even though I’d probably be teching reversal in his place here.
I’m expecting Rook and birds to show up, so I’m preparing some healthy - tokens to curtail that.
I’ve an eye to teching up fast here to get access to abominations, but who knows what will happen.

Grappling Hook and my Sensei surviving let me get an almost clean kill on Orpal. I’m still not sure if I’ll be teching up next turn, so I’ll patrol out of technician and tech Fencers, which are good for both a tech 1 rush and a Finesse plan.

Think

Well, it’s probably over. His board is way ahead of mine. Can’t tech up safely, can’t play heroes safely, didn’t draw plague spitter to slow him down enough. I expect he will wipe my board without losing anything this turn and play birds, and I will summarily lose in three turns.

Really annoying that I can’t get a rune onto Rook too, because I can’t sacrifice Imp, and even if I could, I am forced to spread runes and pay resist. That really sucks. So I lose my tech 2 again guaranteed, and I don’t think I’ll be able to mount a defence beyond this point. Pretty sure it’s just fully over now. I had a slim chance, but it’s gone.

Yeah that’s fine.
It’s basically impossible to fight player 1 white without vandy.

Oh yeah, P1 white really doesn’t need any help in this matchup (or at all).
