Worlds 2016 Battle Report
Warlord: Nazdreg
Date: 11/02/16 thru 11/03/16
Location: Minneapolis, USA
Occasion: Worlds 2016
Round 1: Eldorath

The guy mulliganed into a hand with an Exarch + Rouge Trader against my Battlewagons + some other things (inc either an STC or a BiB, can’t remember). He plays the Exarch to 2 (Iridial) and discards a Wraithknight + shield, whilst I play the Battlewagon to 1 and other thing to 4 and commit to 5 (or the other way around), so that Nazdreg would be opposite his command capper. He went to 3 (Y’varn) so I completely swept command. He did drop a second Exarch at 2, b [continue reading]ut at this point I was able to drop another elite as handily cleared his presence. Going into round 3, he swept command but I locked down first, which meant that even after double Gifting in the 2 dead Exarchs it just wasn’t enough, especially since they were killing the Snotlings but not triggering off of them.

1-0


Round 2: Kith

He mulliganed as well. I had a fun start with initiative by playing an Enraged Ork via BiB, following it up with Wroth, causing him to discard a Palace and a Pact. Given that he didn’t follow up that Palace with another one, I was very happy to see it go. I was then able to play a Flash Gits as well which pretty much made the game an uphill struggle for him, in which I ultimately won early.

2-0


Round 3: Ku’gath

This was against Asher whom ended up going 4-2 in Swiss and getting 10th place (although he ultimately dropped out of the cut to play Netrunner, so I blame him for my first cut match being against Varun). He mulliganed into a hand with just a Nurgling, which certainly helped since the first planet was Y’varn. I put a Blitz Bommer opposite it and commited down the line, which he did as well. Given the opening flop was Y’varn, Carnath, Tarrus I wasn’t feeling great especially since my deck isn’t as elite heavy as a Ku’gath deck and unlikely to field fewer units, but even though he did get the signature Gut + Pillage & Tarrus trigger at Carnath it wasn’t enough to keep him in the game. At the crucial battle he tried to double Terror my elite to which I double Backlashed, prompting him to call me a “horrible person”, to which I reminded him that he tried to terror me twice ;)

3-0


Round 4: Ku’gath

This was against Rick Reinhart (2016 US Champion) and was the toughest game of Swiss by far, if not the tournament (excluding the final). I had to use some clever Teleporta Pad tricks in order to keep my warlord safe, including commits opposite his elites. One round he placed a Possessed on planet 1, so I played an Enraged Ork opposite and passed. He commits to 1, I commit down stream. I Clearcut the Ork up to 11 hp, he swings with Ku’gath, I Pad over Nazdreg and immediately retreat, forcing him to hit the Ork with his Possessed. As I’m about to bloody his warlord he Terror’s it, but if he didn’t I would have probably won the game there and then. I ended up getting a modified win due to time on the penultimate round, but if the game had kept on going it could have been anyone’s game (I think I was slightly more favoured, but that’s without knowing what final elite he would have played).

4-0


Round 5: Kith

This was against Josh Wright, whom snuck into the cut at 15th place and ended up in the top 4. After the game with Rick I was brain dead so I thought this would be an instant loss for me, but fortunately I got the hand I needed and just let the deck go on auto pilot. Ironically the headache actually cleared by the end of the game

5-0


Round 6: Ku’gath

This was against Seth Rosen, the 2016 Worlds Runner Up. Early pressure made it difficult for him to really get a foothold anywhere, which meant that my train did its job. Using a surprise Sneakaz late game to bloody his warlord forced the concede.

6-0


------ TOP CUT ------

Top 16: Shadowsun

The Varun/Pejh faceoff was back, following our 90 match at the UK Nats in which his Ku’gath just about beat my Worr. This one was on the stream, so if you don’t want to be spoiled look away now. Unlike the Nats, I actually drew units, and thanks to him playing straight into my hand by taking the card wins on the first round I played a Wroth that dropped 4 cards from his hand second round. After that I made sure that I won command everywhere whilst guaranteeing the planets I needed, resulting in a big final battle where his massive Firedrake + horde of Techmarines was against my Partywagons + Squiggoth Brute. Thanks to him hitting the standing Battlewagon first, I triggered DStE, allowing me to fund every trick in my hand, resulting in 2 Sneakaz readying my Brute twice and killing his Firedrake. Pretty much game once that died

7-0


Top 8: Eldorath

This was the only Eldorath in the cut, which was surprising given the general consensus that more would reach the cut. He had an early command advantage but I was able to pressure him with my Battlewagon, meaning on the second round I had my Wagon at first opposite his Council, with my Warlord + something at second opposite his Vyper (exhausted) + Eldorath. I killed his Council, he gifted it back to kill he Battlewagon. I DStE then use the resources gained to play Fall Back, which he Nullified (I think he should have Nullified the DStE but forgot to), which stopped me from then Pad’ing it back into first. However, the Snotlings left behind killed the Council, to which he Gifted it back in again, forcing me to send Nazdreg to first and win the planet. At second, he Gifts the council AGAIN to win that battle, but not soon enough to stop the Vyper dying, meaning that the trigger (Plannum) was irrelevant. The extra resources from the DStE pretty much won the game for me from this point onwards.

8-0


Top 4: Kith

This was against Josh, whom I played in the Swiss. I was little worried that he might be on to my deck at this point, but fortunately I churned out the fast win thanks to some Flash Gitz and Partywagons. Him forgetting to trigger Kith’s ability for the Khymeras certainly helped, however

9-0


Finals: Kith

Finally my luck ran out. Muliganned into a cheap unit hand given half the cards were elite boosters (Fall Back, DStE, Backlash, maybe an STC as well) with no elites. Fortunately he didn’t have much either, but having a bad hand as Nazdreg is a lot worse than a bad hand as Kith, especially since I didn’t have much to take advantage of it. He drew all of his tricks and shields early which made winning planets without elites hard as heavy hits generally forgo shields, however I was eventually able to claw my way back up. I think the critical mistake I made was to not play the Brute to Iridial instead of the Blitz Bommer given he had passed on deploy actions and commit Nazdreg, instead, to Ferrin to guarantee the resources for a Backlash, which Nate confirmed with me afterwards would have been where he would have committed. Then I would have probably not needed to use the Brutal Cunning, allowing me to play a Battlewagon in the final battle which would have won me the game, or failing that the extra 2 cards may have found me the all important Rok Bombardment. Regardless, it was a really tough game that was well fought out on both sides. It certainly does not prove, as many have been saying, that Kith is “broken” or the Queen of the meta, but rather that player skill trumps overall (although a decent hand helps too ;) ). I have to say, though, that getting my Enraged Ork up to 20 hp in the world finals was just great

9-1 (the WAAAARGH is brought to a halt)

Still worth it against elites played to non-first planets as it's almost always cost effective, especially where they're setting up movement effects

Seer's Exodus was an interesting include. Did it ever do much for you?

It was amusing when the Seer-that-doesn't-suck was forced to get off his Jetbike when he used his ability on the Squiggoth :)

I'd say it's worth taking out 2 Corp Orks for an extra Weirdboy and an extra Strategist. Both do more damage (although at the cost of 1hp) and have situational abilities that are less situational than the Corp Ork's. With only the Ramshackle Trukk be [continue reading]nefiting from the Corp's ability there's really no point taking it unless you're filling a slot
