Phades wrote:Well basically you have a few issues going on at the same time. First, the initial "easy" answer to buy you a turn and slightly reverse the field control of the situation is Dragonrider / Wasseir. However, gowen does have a workaround for it, but even so you stated that you do not have it. Secondly, when referencing not stacking the frontline, you can also play "fake" front lines that you expect to go down and are covered with other range 1 units. Again, it comes down to having the right cards and playing them at the appropriate time.
Simply buying more cards won't neccasarially get you what you need either, so it is really hard for someone to say with confidence that you should in fact "buy more cards". It is easier to take note that you feel that you are missing pieces that you would prefer to play and are being hit with something that is considered rather potent.
Darn you grain for taking the link out...

Then If I have time before the Brave soul, do something in the second row, range attacker or Holy Weapon Priestess if possible. Now, our intrepid Gowen has two choices. Attack, and risk hitting the wisp, wasting an attack, or burn 2 SP to slash, essentially for no reason then to be sure of hitting the unit he wants. Either way, my front line survives, if barely, hitting Brave Soul for some damage. Then my second row bats clean up (or if that's not going to happen, an Energy Bolt to weaken him at the beginning of the turn in question). Next turn, the Soldier revives and probably another Panther Soul goes off. If Wisp was killed, he sets off a 20x level soul skill, killing the BS before he goes. Otherwise, the Gowen player still has two units to face off with, and has to make last rounds' choice again. Continue along this line, burning a Cure if necessary. I know it seems bad to burn cures and soul cards to beat out this simple, low level combo, but remember in the early game SP counts more than cards or LP, and we're costing him SP and minimizing the benefits he gets from it. When all is said and done, the fewer copies of your front line fighter and the less SP you've wasted the better.

Of course, it depends on what else he has out before, but once he starts the cycle, brave soldier, then Panther Soul, then reviving, slashing and more panther souls will eat up his SP and his Set phases so hopefully not much more will get out.
