[XCAFRR21] Pod3 charnel_mouse Red vs FrozenStorm Blue

GLHF @FrozenStorm!

P1T1

Starting hand: 5

Mad Man
Bloodrage Ogre
Careless Musketeer
Makeshift Rambaster
Pillage

Thoughts

Not quite the optimal opener, but not bad. Ogre patrols to protect Mad Man against a Manufactured Truth trade, even if that’s really inefficient.

My Thoughts

tough matchup here, not sure what to do tbh. I spose Truth might be my best avenue, not a ton of cheap targeting for Charnel… Free speech helps a ton too… Idk we’ll see, I suck with Blue XD


P1T2

Starting hand: 4

Bombaster
Bloodburn
Charge
Scorch

Thoughts

Main question here is whether to bring out Bloodburn or Bombaster. The former slows down my aggression, but it’s an easy way to deal with Spectral Aven. Alternatively, I just tech in Bloodlust or Taxmen. I’d rather not rely on Bloodlust so much, when I might be facing Free Speech later on. I’ll go with Bloodburn, and plan on getting offence going again with Lobbers. Hopefully I can get some card size back later with Zane.

P1T3

Starting hand: 4

Nautical Dog
Makeshift Rambaster

Lobber

Thoughts

Lobber and Mad Man can kill Onimaru, and leave nothing good on-board to copy with Manufactured Truth, if I kill the Traffic Director with Zane.

So far, so good, but with only Zane on the board I don’t have especially strong forward momentum, so Peace would still be nasty to deal with. Maybe Surprise Attack can help me keep FrozenStorm under pressure while he tries to set up. In the meantime, Firebirds are the obvious response.

Starting hand: 4

Lobber
Bombaster

Molting Firebird

Thoughts

Peace isn’t surprising here. Drawing Firebird is unfortunate, but it means I don’t need to fit in paying for a Tech II just yet.

Lobber + Charged Bombaster + maxband Zane is 7 gold, and clears the patrol with a patroller bonus on top. I probably want the card draw here rather than the gold, try to get something better to worker. Then Zane and Bloodburn destroy a Tech building, or Bloodburn kills Building Inspector and Zane leaves a building nearly destroyed. The latter invites instantly losing tempo to Garrison + Cadet, the former might see Manufactured Truth + Aven to… kill Bombaster, which the Inspector can do anyway with a trade. Eh, that’s fine.

My Thoughts

So far so fine, can’t lay OC unfortunately but we’ll manage. I think next turn we’ll probably pivot for Truth Tech Lab, Macciatus, and some flagbearers. I’m way ahead on cards and about to be more so. Don’t want to give a chance for techn draw so going to leave mirror out patrol, if there’s Sharks I’ll probably take some building damage but hopefully will be okay.

Thoughts

I can deal a little building damage here, if I really want to, but I’ll be going even further down on hand size to do so. If I only play Surprise Attack and don’t worker, I can kill the ground patrollers and build Tech II, but Aven will be around to be a menace.

Bloodburn can target units or buildings. Bigby is strong like his courthouse but is not, in fact, a building. And I’m sure in his sportsball days they might have referred to him as “a BEAST UNIT” but that was not literal in the context of card time :wink:

I’m unclear how Jaina joins us, you ended up not building tech 2 last turn, and didn’t build a hero’s Hall that I saw

Also I have flagbearers who are dying for that sweet heat of burning blood, afraid the mirror isn’t as eager
