Thoughts

Didn’t pull the right draw to open with Aven into MT, but that’s okay, I have good odds to hit MT on the reshuffle. Need to put Bomber on the back foot with Aven, because there’s so few ways for White to target it.

Alright, so Porkhand will draw Bomber out of tech range. This is a pretty significant advantage. I can porkhand, Tech 1, Aven, worker with 5 gold. Honestly kinda curious why Bomber didn’t play out another card to minimize the impact of Porkhand here.

Newsman to block Safe Attacking and Sensei’s Advice and Shuriken Hail. Brave Knight to Hold the Line. Primus is actually relevant here but sets up bad trades for me. Oh and OEC, I’m just going to steamroll tempo right now

Think

Ok, he’s gone down on cards, so I’ll just fill his hand back up for him. So I can FDS without him having any opportunity to stop it, since he already played out newsman. Nice for me!

I don’t think it matters, but the Monk is missing a damage…

True, I marked it internally but forgot to write it in.

Uh…I don’t remember if Porkhand goes to discard before or after technician draw.

Um.
@FrozenStorm ? I can’t believe I forgot after I was posting about it last week

Porky goes to discard, then tech draw, then teched cards go to discard

Appreciate it! One of those little rules that’s very important a very small amount of the time and I keep forgetting it.

Oni plus Arrest is 4 gold, leaves 2 gold. Newsman with MT and Boot Camp on one of my things seem good.

Think

Hmm well, destroying his tech 1 seems like the best play. The newsman at 1 is annoying, but I can still play fds, so we’ll kill oni and lock his tech for now. He cannot afford judgement day, so he will certainly build a tower and block with tech 0/heroes. However, he could have redrawn manufactured truth to kill setsuki, which would be sad. If that happens, I will tech up in order to play the tech 2s I will draw the turn after (with setsuki dead).
I think I’m in a good spot.

Shouldn’t this pop the Newsman?

3 Likes

He… raises a valid point.

@Dreamfire is correct, newsman is a mirror until end of turn and would pop

Yeah I’m going to have to redo the shuffle then, I’d just float the gold. Somehow I glossed over the timing on it switching back.

@FrozenStorm Do I have to redo my turn at all?
