unlikely that i’d be able to reach a building inspector next turn with no unit in my hand this turn, whereas now i can dump both soldiers and a hero on the board, aven will be a problem though, might aim to Now! it, as vortoss emblem is too unlikely to be otherwise useful whereas a Now! will be good ot have in my deck anyway

early teched Now! is also not a bad idea as i may not have a tech building on turn 3 if they knock it down

i like this, okay to go down on cards as next turn i can immortal, and this way i get another tech before reshuffling so will almost certainly get at least one TD or hyperion even with small draw - if they have both macciatus and spectral roc in hand, well, i guess i really have to kill macciatus so another reason to keep fargo alive

I think you can fix it with some order changes, but Now! must target the flagbearer.

good catch, I was aiming to keep Max healthy as well as Stewardess alive but alas; turn edited above, defaulted to redrawing next hand

I don’t think there’s anything I can do to stand in your way. I’ve always found this matchup so difficult as Blue. I haven’t won it a single time! Well done, buttercup!

Why didn’t you go here for arrest neo + double tech break with midband Oni in SL being relatively safe? You could even put him in elite so that a now’ed max would have to suicid in order to kill him?

I’m not even following what you’ve suggested enough to answer that. Let’s settle for the answer I gave you when you asked me to join: I am extraordinarily bad at this game.

Don’t make yourself smaller than you are, zhavier won the last couple of tournaments and he already has left our field whereas you’re still in!! :wink:

No worries, I’m not making myself smaller by acknowledging that I’m hot garbage at playing this game so I’m all good on that front. I have plenty of marvelous qualities that I love a lot. Being bad at this game is not a thing that’s gonna get me down. :laughing:
