Expensive, but I have a way to kill Aven next turn if needed. I actually think I want to try a gutsy play of going for broke with Rich Earth. My other good option is Argagarg, or I could hmmm actually Panda is a really good opener here. Bummer that there’s just not much I can do with the rest of that gold right now, but having 5 gold available lets me Shambler and ping an Aven and still Tech 1. Or pay for Resist. Going to have to come down hard on Blue, I think Injunction is my biggest threat here, disabling a large swathe of my units so I can’t bring the hammer down on them. Blooming Ancient is probably my best option because it helps me field a diverse swathe of Tech 0 and 1 units alongside Tech 2 stuff.

@OffKilter’s turn!

GLHF!

So the million dollar question is, how bad is Aven really? If I go Arg, RG on panda to kill Quince and midband, Arg becomes an illusion killing monster. 50/50 on MT. My other answers cost 5 gold. So, would I rather develop Arg and wisps and tech 1? Yeah we can go Panda Power with these wisps. patrol strategy: prefer to keep Wisps alive because MT can’t copy buff spells

@OffKilter’s turn!

The end of turn discard looks weird because I forgot to move Rampant Growth to discard before hitting draw/discard, I don’t believe that changes anything since it hits discard anyway, but I can redo it in 6ish hours when I get home if the refs need.

No tech 1, so it looks like a Spirit of the Panda rush? That’s going to be rough. I can at least make it expensive with Building Inspector…

Spirit of the Panda is 4, I go down to 2 and then back up to 3, worker down to 2, Arg pops the Illusion after spirited Panda kills Squad Leader. At this point, Spirit is just going to snowball I think. I really like having these wisps to protect my backline, honestly… Anyhow, I can either play Young Treant or Tech 1 at this point, and I think I just hang on to Tech 1 right now?? Really really risking hitting a Free Speech though, so I think it’s better to throw down Tech 1 and get ready for beefier units.

@OffKilter’s turn!

phew I got a lucky draw.

Woof. So mid Arg is the first play here to pop Aven. Rampant Growth on a wisp kills squad leader and then I can deploy a cub or Forest’s Favor to kill Inspector. I think Cub because we just saw MT come out, although we did see a reshuffle. Cub is stronger against Free Speech though.

Unfortunate, I greatly underestimated my ability to ping down Illusions. Ah well. Let’s park a Centaur in defense position and bring forth Tech 2. I can Circle of Life stuff into Blooming Ancient, I’m going for Rhino here to potentially combo with Ferocity as a defender.

@OffKilter’s turn!

There still is a building inspector in game :wink:

Well, that was fun! I had those Quince spells to quash argagarg, but better to kill him. Still no tech 2, but I guess if I put in another scribe and Macciatus I can hope that the shuffle is timed right.

Obviously I’m bringing out Midori and then Circle of Life, then what? I need something that dominates the board. 1/7 odds of Arrest, so Rhino is a lot safer unless Boot Camp got teched. Blooming Ancient is even better actually, I can drop that into Panda and pop two illusions

This isn’t looking bad, I have worker advantage now and my deck is going to stay thin.

@OffKilter’s turn!

Unless I missed something, Inspector is still in play so this should cost $3 and keave you w/o float.
