Sky-Scraper plays Catch a Ride. Chrono Ranger and Sky-Scraper deal Kismet 3 damage each.

Sky-Scraper plays Aggression Modulator on Gene-Bound Ravagers and Compulsion Canister on Kismet. Kismet deals herself 4 damage (2 +1 "By Any Means" +1 Talisman) and destroys the Talisman, which goes to Haka. Sky-Scraper pulls Compulsion Canister back to her hand.

Reminder: Kismet will flip at the start of her turn unless The Talisman is destroyed. Here's what that looks like:



So Haka will take 4 psychic damage, and if he still has The Talisman at the start of the turn after she flips, he'll take 4 fire damage. On the plus side, you're chewing through Kismet's health: 20 damage so far, 10 of that on this turn. At this rate, you'll win a straight damage race.

Oh, I forgot to mention: Sky-Scraper's end-of-turn draw was Micro-Assembler.

Absolute Zero plays Focused Apertures and takes 1 fire damage to deal 3 cold damage to Kismet. At the end of his turn, he draws Cold Snap.

Haka takes 4 fire damage from The Talisman (I forgot the Challenge ability is on both sides).

Haka plays Elbow Smash to deal 4 melee damage to Kismet, then he uses Taiaha on Kismet and the Talisman for 4 and 3 melee damage, respectively. He draws Haka of Battle.

Oh yes, you did mention that.

Chrono Ranger deals 6 damage to Kismet and draws Eye on the Prize.

Dok'thorath Capital plays Rebel Headquarters. Gene-Bound Ravagers deals 4 damage to Kismet and 3 to the Talisman. Rebel Headquarters activates, drawing a second Gene-Bound Ravagers, which deals 3 damage to Kismet, 2 to the Talisman (destroying it), and 2 to each hero.

Kismet does not flip, thanks to the Ravager combo, so she deals 2 psychic damage to each hero (triggering The Ultimate Target in the process), then 2 more psychic damage to Sky-Scraper due to her jinx.

Kismet draws Glass Jaw and plays it on Haka. At the end of her turn, she reveals another Glass Jaw.

What will you discard? (I guess you'll draw two more cards, so you probably don't know just yet)

I'll open with Eye On The Prize on my turn, but wait to see what I draw before declaring my next play (it'll probably be Terrible Tech-Strike).

Nice, early Rebel Headquarters.

Okay, so between my power and my actual card play I'm throwing all of the links in my hand. Micro-Assembler goes to Absolute Zero (gotta get dem modules son), Compulsion Canister's getting bounced to have Kismet attack herself and the non-linked Ravagers, and the Cortex Hyperstimulator can go onto the Talisman because why not.

Haha this is great. Because Compulsion Canister causes Kismet to damage herself, it triggers The Ultimate Target, allowing Chrono Ranger to attack. That's another eight damage, and the Ravagers are dead thanks to the Talisman boost.

Sneaking allows you to return a Link to your hand from your trash or play. Do you want Neutralizing Resonator or possibly Compulsion Canister? Not sure this game will last another round, but hey.

I'll just declare in advance that my second card play will definitely be Terrible Tech-Strike, followed by Quick Shot. All damage goes to Kismet.

I'm gonna discard all but Dominion and use Taiaha to hit Kismet first, then the talisman again (unless someone advises against it).

Haka hits Kismet for 8 and The Talisman for 3. He draws a second Dominion.

Chrono Ranger plays Eye on the Prize, hitting Kismet for 3 and drawing Ranger's Mark. He plays Terrible Tech-Strike, hitting Kismet for the win.



Well, that was quick. Kismet can give you trouble, but she died too quickly to prove it.

I'd be happy to run another game if there's interest, though I'd probably field a sturdier villain this time.
