Copy pasta or did you miss the Thieving Imp discard?

I did totally ignore the discard, I will re-do turn… Imp didn’t hit Dog though so no fundamental changes @charnel_mouse , proceed

Graveyard

Thoughts

Bloodburn and Lobber are going to be a pain with Hotter Fire coming in. I wonder whether it’s worth having a Sneaky Pig Wight around for Jaina, or a Catapult to help the Haunt take out a Firehouse. If I tech one Catapult and one Skeleton Lord, that leaves me one of each to fetch. I just need some room to build the Tech Lab, can’t afford it this turn. Not happy about having to discard the Graveyard here.

My Thoughts

Deteriorate did indeed make that a pretty easy dunk of a turn. Techn missing Hotter Fire kinda sucks too… No bueno. Would have been great to have that then Firebird + Charge. Even Kidnapping here would be great to kill the Lord… Oh well. We’ll see what we can make due with


P2T5

Starting hand: 3

Skeleton Javelineer
Skeletal Archery
Pestering Haunt

Thoughts

Skeletal Archery lets me kill the Firebird here, and if Garth kills the Ogre he can’t be finished off by Bloodburn. That leaves 4 gold if I worker and play Skeletons, I suppose I could bring in another hero.

Tech options… I wonder what my chances of summoning something with Skeleton Lord are. Obvious choice is Zarramonde, although the Lord of Shadows is sort of amusing against Bloodburn. I’d like Lich’s Bargain to keep my board large, but the base damage might make it dicey against Fire. I seem to be doing OK for base health so far, though. I’ll take a copy, at least.

Welp, this was not a great draw… Having Kidnapping is good, but I needed to split Hotter Fire. I think I’m pretty sunk, gonna throw a hail mary for desperation + firehouse being able to flood the board long enough to clear all the weanies. Pretty doubtful, we’ll see I spose

Whelp I drew Kidnapping so with Drakk dead, I am sunk here. That other Lord is a dagger. GG WP!

I spose firebird backline would have been better, I was probably overly worried about a StW combo. Mostly I was just pissed about drawing the Firebird on techn instead of Kidnapping, Hotter Fire, or Lobber (or charge even).

GG! A lucky Technician draw on that second Lord at the end there. I was wondering where the Hotter Fire was :smiley:
