This is game 1 of the Tournament 4 Quarterfinal match between Noetherian and SimonGoertzen.

Simon has called "Odd"

I am picking a random number using random.org (between 1 and 100)

I get 51.

Simon wins the toss and can decide whether he wants to play first or second.

Yeah, not a great time for you to get a Level 1 hand. In particular, if you got your Turn 7 hand on Turn 6 and your Turn 6 hand on Turn 7, you would be in a very strong position.

Hand: Grove Huntress 1, Magma Hound 1, Air Spirit 1, Echowisp 1, Volcanic Giant 2

I play Volcanic Giant 2 into Lane 5.
I play Magma Hound 1 into Lane 2, killing your Lane 1 wisp.

I am assuming that you meant to delete the first line about the Echowisps. As that is coherent with the board state you posted, I'll advance.

Hand: Lv3 Air Spirit, Lv1 Deepbranch Prowler, Lv1 Grove Huntress, Lv1 Lightning Spark, Lv1 Enrage

I'll drop Lv3 Air Spirit in Lane 2 and shoot your Echowisps with the Lv1 Lightning Spark as well as my Acolyte's trigger. You take 6 in combat.
