[XCAFRR21] Pod2 Bomber678 Purple vs zango Red

Ah right, somehow I didn’t mark out I’d attacked with it.
Uhh I guess it’s fine. I’ll just redraw my hand with nullcraft in the deck.

Thoughts

Expecting shenegans with now! and TD, so it’s a tough call whether I want to play the mad man, to let a Hyperion run into nonsense or to have the guaranteed gunship in hand next turn (5 cards in Deck, 1 gunship there, if I play mad max I’ll only draw four) but with mad man in SL it’s so likely Jaina dies, I just hope this doesn’t matter…
The other question: GPT for a possible Drakk midband kill of a voidstar or the card free hero, that might give Max free levels…
A seemingly trivial turn really got me into mental overdrive :crazy_face:

Hmm… I have to patrol hive or I basically lose the game. That sucks, since patrolling hive also probably means I lose the game.

Sac Tower so that he can’t sac max for Prynn

You don’t get 1 gold for killing a scavenger unless Zane is at midband.
Also I miswrote my base health, it was meant to be 12 and I forgot, so now it’s at 9.

Think

Somehow I survive another turn. I don’t know why he built a tech lab… surely he has no blood cards, and he didn’t tech any new ones in. What’s he playing at? Has he had blood cards roaming his deck this whole time? I don’t understand.
Well, all I can do is keep pressing forwards. Maybe a miraculous opening will present itself.
I’m starting to get an undertanding of his current deck comp… it definitely still has the cards to win the game here. Just have to hope not in the right order this turn…

Right!

Edit because of stupidity

I think that one was crucial. If you had accepted more damage in Prynn in order to let Hyperion survive I would have felt worse, but maybe I’m wrong

Ahem.

Uff, 3 cards in hand and what three they were… :flushed:

Doesn’t change my opinion: great game!
But well, triple ready or not really is neck breaking

I preteched them ages ago. I tried a similar strategy last time I faced gunships, but it wasn’t quite as effective as it was this time.

Well it only helps, if you also break tech 3 at the right times :wink:
But then it’s awesome!
So much for my decision to let max live and break tech 2 instead.

Awesome game by both of you! Not sure I’ve ever seen a Gunship in play beaten before :sweat_smile:

@Bomber678 One thing I didn’t get is patrolling Hive in sql. Was that to protect the Tric?

1 Like

I suddenly realised that if I didn’t patrol the hive, he had lethal. All he had to do was kill tricycloid with gunship, then kill seer with anything, then he could hit my base with steam tank+mad man+drakk boost+whatever haste from hand.
