Another quick report! Same map and scenario, I go first yet again.

Same Wurmwood as #420

Delay the fight, draw out souls, make the shooting work for me.

No point in clouding top of 1 vs Wurmwood in my experience. Dig in instead. Less time, taunts Circle to make mistakes. Spread out.
No commitment from Circle. The central forest is used for Fort Wurmwood. Sentries advance. I could kill for Stealth removal. Cloud up, bide my time. One Grenadier picks off a Shifting Stone. Great success! Thorn terribly positioned, have to make up for it.
Circle keep pushing...
I kill Sentry left side with Future, right side with Lances. Push cloudwall.
Circle tries to consolidate around their fort, but table space is being lost at an alarming rate. Feat.
Clock is running out, in an act of desperation more than anything Megalith it sent up.
I kill Megalith with shooting alone, contest and begin pushing cloudwall again.
A couple of turns with grinding...
...and I win on scenario!
Victory to the Swans!
:: Evaluation ::
Skill-intensive game where time is of the essence. I win the attrition fight but have a feeling my opponent missed a few openings. He prioritized hellmouthing Trenchers, which isn't half bad, but it's rarely enough. I still don't feel confident playing Haley3 into Wurmwood. It's an ok game. Regardless I have better choices available so I'm not worried. Even if I'm locked there are definitely worse matchups out there!
SmogCon next! I wish I had more time and games to prepare but it is what it is. Really excited go go now!
