As we agreed on earlier, I rolled and got a 97 out of 1 to 100. So, you get to go first. I'm normally only on for a few hours every day, so this will probably take a few days to finish.

YaknYeti's Turn 2
Hand: Lv1 Lightning Wyrm, Lv1 Flameshaper Acolyte, Lv1 Volcanic Giant, Lv1 Magma Hound, Lv1 Fangwood Field
Maybe this is dumb when you have two Earthshakers on the map… but Fangwood to Lane 1 and Acolyte to Lane 2.

Combat: you take 5. I have a feeling this game will be nasty, brutish and short.

It's not actually that easy to use Earthshaker's structure removal without Cull (hence its beefy stats), so I personally wouldn't consider it a daft play.

SkyAnemone's Turn 2

Hand: Air Spirit 1, Echowisp 1, Grove Huntress 1, Magma Hound 1, Scorchmane 1

Yeah, let's get this party started! Magma Hound to lane 1, burning Lifeshaper. Then move both Earthshakers down a lane. Combat: lane 1 trades, and you take 6. Then Echowisp to lanes 1 and 2.

Hmm. I have no idea why the table split like that.

It seems that my computer has given up the ghost. I do have a secondary option for posting, but that might not happen for a few days… I'll post again after a few days on my status; if I don't have a way of posting consistently at that point, I'm going to forfeit the tournament.

Okay, internet access is still a little sketchy, but after I retrieve my data I should be able to post intermittently.

Stay tuned for the next episode of SkyAnemone's Endless Struggles with Technology! Yeah!

SkyAnemone's Turn 4

Hand: Brimstone 1 x2, Earthshaker 1, Glowstride 1, Lightning Spark 1

Interesting hand. Glowstride is the natural counter to Wyrm, but it doesn't seem like you're going for direct damage. To counter your Shapers, I'm going to need oodles of lane control, so I'll put down Brimstone to lane 3 and Earthshaker to lane 2. Combat: Wyrm dies.

Hand: Lv2 Flameshaper Acolyte, Lv1 Echowisp, Lv1 Echowisp, Lv1 Echowisp, Lv2 Lifeshaper Savant
Brimstone is a bit annoying… Lucky turn 5 draw for me. I'm thinking this is a good turn to neglect my Echowisps. Lifeshaper to Lane 2, Flameshaper to Lane 5. No combat.

SkyAnemone's Turn 5

Hand: Earthshaker 2, Grove Huntress 1, Scorchmane 1, Echowisp 1, Lightning Spark 1

Alright, let's see how many of your triggers I can waste. Move Earthshaker to lane 1. Combat: you take 3, and Earthshaker destroys the Fangwood. Then Echowisps to lanes 2 and 3, and Earthshaker 2 to lane 4.

YaknYeti's Turn 6
Hand: Lv1 Lifeshaper Savant, Lv1 Volcanic Giant, Lv1 Lightning Spark, Lv1 Deepbranch Prowler, Lv1 Lightning Wyrm
Well, this is a good hand after two Shapers. Prowler to Lane 4 and Giant to Lane 1. Both Lifeshaper buffs go to the Prowler, and the Flameshaper zaps both Echowisps.

Combat: Earthshaker in Lane 1 dies and ensures the demise of my Giant. You take 12 damage.

Volcanic Giant dies. I'll Enrage the Earthshaker and move it to lane 5, then Prowler to lane 2. Combat: Flameshaper dies.

Oof, that's rough.

SkyAnemone's Turn 7

Hand: Grove Huntress 2, Earthshaker 2, Brimstone 2, Scorchmane 1, Glowstride 1

Hmph, well, I was kinda hoping for an Echowisp, but I can't complain that I don't have level 2 draws. Still, this is a difficult choice… do I want a 11/3 Earthshaker in lane 4, or an 8/5 Earthshaker in lane 2? Tactically, I prefer the latter, since then you can't trade a Lightning Spark/Wyrm with it, but dare I take another 3 damage on top of the oodles of damage I've already taken? I believe so, though reluctantly.

I'll play Earthshaker to lane 2 and Huntress to lane 4, buffing itself. Combat: I take 12.

If that 3 health turns out to be the key factor to me losing… well, that would be very maddening.

Hand: Lv1 Lightning Spark, Lv1 Lifeshaper Savant, Lv1 Magma Hound, Lv1 Rumbling Earthshaker, Lv1 Fangwood Field

Wyrm dies.

Good call on avoiding the single Lightning Spark to take out the Earthshaker. I think I'll have to play both Spark and Magma Hound to take him out. Hound to Lane 2.

Well, I get a turn's reprieve, at least.

SkyAnemone's Turn 8

Hand: Air Spirit 1, Brimstone 2, Magma Hound 1, Prowler 1 x2

I wish Magma Hound weren't so delicate right now, but the extra removal power could make or break my game here. The question is, where to place it? I think the most obvious course is on one of the Brimstones, but that's not really right here, since you wouldn't really mind just leaving it unblocked and simply play all your cards to the empty lanes. Of course, it doesn't really even matter all that much, since you have enough removal options to make mincemeat of the Hound next turn.

So Brimstone to lane 2, and Magma Hound to lane 4, burning your Magma Hound I guess? Kind of a vain gesture, but whatevs.
