Community Play Game Session 2 - CotG

Postby IAmTrilkin » Tue Mar 17, 2015 4:06 pm

So this is the second Community Play. I know Lancelot was intending on taking it over with one at some point, but he seems to have either lost interest or is just otherwise too busy. I thought I'd pitch in and get one started. The rules are the same as the last one, but as a recap:

1. Don't take it personally if your suggestion isn't used. Different people have different strategies and the decision is ultimately the majority's or - in the case of no activity - the OP. Remember, it's all for fun and mostly discussion!

2. Anyone can jump in at any point! Weren't there to participate for earlier turns? No problem! Just get caught up on the play history before you jump in!

3. There will be about a day for people to put their input in.

Due to this being mostly an exercise in deckbuilding strategy more than not, I will be playing against the Hard AI to make things a bit smoother.

This time, we'll be playing with good ol' classic Chronicle of the Godslayer. I will note all plays, what my current deck is and have screenshots posted of the board just as Unikornus did.

Any other suggestions or comments are welcome.

Turn 1

The AI went first.

Image

AI Played: 4 Apprentices, 1 Militia
AI Acquired/Defeated: Rocket Courier X-99

Center Row: Earth Tyrant, Kor the Ferromancer, Wolf Shaman, Burrower Mark II, Emri One With The Void, Runic Lycanthrope

Our Hand: 3 Apprentices, 2 Militia

Our Deck
8 Apprentices, 2 Militia

AI Deck:
8 Apprentices, 2 Militia, 1 Rocket Courier X-99

I would grab the Wolf Shaman myself. What say you folks?

With that row, PERSONALLY, I'd do a turn 1 wolf shaman and a turn 2 Runic Lycanthrope if it's still there.

Another possible play is T1 Burrower into T2 Kor + Infantry. You have flexibility to move into a Rune/Power hybrid or get a head start on Power when more monsters come.

Mechana Constructs are really good in this format and getting Emri would be a great buy for the hybrid approach. I have no issue with the above suggestion though. Regardless of our T2, it may be beneficial to deny the opponent Rocket Courier + Burrower for his T1&2.

I love the Wolf Shaman, so that would be my buy. Goes with any deck :)

Awesome to see someone else continuing this! :mrgreen:

I'm on fence between Burrower and Wolf Shaman. Probably Burrower for T1.

I love Wolf Shaman and with Kor in center row, guarantees that Lycanthrope will be there on 2nd round since AI always seems to pick up better honor value cards.

If you go with Burrower, AI will pickup Kor on next turn. If you leave Burrower, AI will pick it up next turn.

Turn 2

Image

We Played: 3xApprentice, 2xMilitia
We Acquired: Wolf Shaman
We Defeated: 1xCultist

Wolf Shaman was replaced by Void Initiate

AI Played: 4xApprentice, 1xMilitia
AI Acquired: Void Initiate, Burrower Mark II

Void Initiate was replaced by Snapdragon.
Burrower Mark II was replaced by Samael's Trickster.


Center Row: Earth Tyrant, Kor the Ferromancer, Snapdragon, Samael's Trickster, Emri One With The Void, Runic Lycanthrope

Our Hand: 5xApprentice

Our Deck
8 Apprentices, 2 Militia, 1 Wolf Shaman

AI Deck:
8 Apprentices, 2 Militia, 1 Rocket Courier X-99, 1 Void Initiate, 1 Burrower Mark II

Go forward with the Runic Lycanthrope? That surprise Void Initiate's a bit of annoying since that accelerates the AI's deck now.

Snapdragon all the way. AI will probably grab Kor on the next turn unless something better lands in the place of Snapdragon. Then I would plan on getting the Lycanthrope (on next turn) if nothing else better presents itself.
