    On my mark would be awesome for Grange

    as long as scalpel and the bear catch a nerf, I feel like we get a huge benefit from that. If grange got some love then that is just a bonus.

    Scalpel woes

    True, I am just being hopeful in keeping silence within range of someone with a reliable KD

    Scalpel woes

    Not necessarily. The only real re-positioning on the morts team is scalpel. If silence is activating first to get a crucial blind or tucked then the farmer player "should" still have decent positioning. This is talking about the pre-clash, top of 2, not sure how how that argument holds up during and after round 3.

    Scalpel woes

    but that is kind of what farmers are looking for: High defense, low health, and little defensive tech. If I bring grange and you force him to go last then that means putting silence in danger for a tater charge. This whole matchup feels like it is all about knowing where to give up points and how to counter score your own VP's (At least from the farmers perspective). Most line ups I play against (and these are really good players) are scalpel, dirge, cosset, vet hemlock, graves1, and flex (bonesaw or casket normally). It is a tough game for sure.

    Scalpel woes

    I am currently 2-2 versus scalpel (1-1 with both captains) and it is the hardest matchup that I have played thus far in season 4 with farmers. I am wondering what tactics you take into her. *This is at a very high skill level and competitive scene. Problems - 1- getting pushed out of or away from the setup that I have created 2- crowd outs and easy wrapping for morts players because of voodoo strings 3- The ability to switch styles mid game and goal score (midnight offering 7 inches, sprint 9, 4 inch dodge after goal and then 4 inch dodge from second wind.) This one is particularly hard after I set up the scrum and actually feel like I have an advantage, she scores and typically can generate enough momentum to be in the running, and then if she goes first can spirit bomb voodoo strings herself back to a goal scoring opportunity.

    scalpel, dirge, graves, bonesaw, vet hemlock, cosset. It had a lot of movement shenanigans for a 2-2 game which is what this player is known for. Bonesaw scored and then got jailed by tater and peck to be killed turn 2. The early goal gave him a lot of tempo and put me back on my heels more than i was anticipating but in the future I will not allow that if I can remember. Casket is probably the better call but boesaw caught me.

    Just got done with a 19 person tournament this weekend and finished 2nd. First round beat scalpel with thresher, peck, tater, jack, plough, and millstone 12-9. 2nd round got a fish player (really good player and I haven't had experience against them). Took thresher, peck (just in case he dropped corsair)jack, ploughman, harrow, and tater. He missed a kick that would have allowed a snap back for a 12-8 game but instead ended up 12-4. Jack held onto the ball for most of the game and then the farmers just killed whatever came close. 3rd round was a tough matchup vs a very skilled scalpel player (since season 2). dropped thresher and same lineup as game one. He scored with bonesaw needing 5's down a dice and then I killed bonesaw. He setup ploughman to kill and I rearranged to score and get another kill. I score to early and the scatter take it directly to cosset who scores. This means a need a 6 point activation or a way to get any combo of 6 points and not give up the last 2. He plays seize and I play lone striker but thanks to the screamer by cosset, he wins. I make it hard for him to go after anyone by dodging Tater to engage scalpel. Graves goes and puts damage on thresher and tools up scalpel. thresher goes and cant get the take out and goal but could do one or the other. Instead I set up the kill and steal the ball from dirge. He proceeds to kill millstone trivially. 12-6 loss Last game was against a really good player playing union for the 1st tournament. super close game that came down to a few scatters and time outs. Rage vs thresher in an all out war. Great tournament and lots of fun. Still trying to figure out how to unlock scalpel at this point.

    The morts matchup seems difficult with them being able to manipulate the board. I played into obs and scalpel and barely been able to keep my set up going. Congrats @The_Question_NL on a great finish in a large tournament!

    Went to an 11 man tournament this weekend and went 2-1 First round beat Alchs (thresher, peck, millstone, jack, tater, ploughman vs smoke, naja, Mercury, venin, compound, and crucible) I kicked off and made it difficult for him to score turn 1 and set up a killed on venin. Killed 2 models then he scores and I get the ball to thresher for a 6 point activation. The scatter goes perfectly to let smoke get in and out to score another goal. Then I will the last model to clean it up. Felt pretty in control the whole game. 2nd was Mort's (thresher buckwheat tater windle, ploughman and jack vs obs, dirge, graves1, cosset, casket, and vet hemlock) I kicked so I might tempt him to not play scalpel and it worked. He tried to set up a casket time, but I had enough models with KD early that walking away wasn't really an option. I was able to set the scrum and use mow down 4 or 5 times on turn 2 which really turned the game in my favor (hot dice here). Was able to kill several models and put a lot of damage out there with thresher and then heal up with all the momentum. He gets a goal to get to 6 and tater run away from his newly.returned squad while I set up the last kill and goal run by jack. Last game was hunter Same line up for farmers (change in peck)and skatha Fahad chaska, bear, zarola, vet minx He kicked I killed it off to the opposite side with peck. So at least it wouldnt be turn 1 goal. Managed distances really well I feel like. Tater charged minx and put a hurt on her but she was able to put blessing on chaska to get a rap to double push double push boom box tater off the pitch.... (Broken af if you ask me) 6-0 down I kill Fahad to make sure I start next turn. Kill skatha and set the scrum (jack is holding the ball in cover but close enough to goal run when he felt like it.) Kill the cat again and starting to take over. Thresher goes down to the bear making it 8-6. Bear uses his last influence to get to jack crowded out twice and in cover and gets to mf'ing KD. Scatter is as bad as it gets. Skatha scores next turn. Hunters are tough right now. They are so efficient and wierdly tanky. Great tournament and farmers are a lot of fun!

    Went 2-1 in a local tourney getting 3rd. Played against alchs, morts, and hunters. Those hunters were rough even after feeling like I played a really good game. I'll post my write ups later.

    I have been looking into ways to get at esters (theoretical because no brewer players in meta) but I have thought that Harrow would be a good answer. I didn't really think about it for alchs because my buddy played midas into me and I was able to go 2inch murder group and not worry about conditions.

    Took a weird list against morts yesterday and did not care for it even though I pulled it out. Grange, buckwheat, jack, bushel, windle, and tater. Really missed ploughman and the extra harvest markers/ control of rough ground. Ended the game with 1 goal and 2 take outs with 4 clock points. Felt dirty but with all my HP and the high risk of the goal run, I decided to use the clock to my benefit. How is everyone else doing in S4?
