Having given up on Mimix for now, I'm trying to win the Khind vs. Hoax matchup. This matchup is a heck of a lot more competitive and interesting to watch unfold, and the game I'm about to relate was another one that came down to the very last card. I think it's the first game I've ever played where both sides have run out of cards at the end.

Fight 1:

Khind plays NoRespect.
Khind announces 1 earth.
Hoax plays Catusan.
Hoax announces 5 earth.
Khind retreats.
Hoax attracts 1 dragon. (Hoax 1-0)

Fight 2:

Khind plays NoBrains.
Khind announces 3 earth.
Hoax plays Demegodas the Odd.
Hoax plays Homing Missiles.
Hoax announces 6 earth.
Khind retreats.
Hoax attracts 1 dragon. (Hoax 2-0)

You can see how ultracompetitive this is so far. I was trying to dink around a bit and paid for it early. I had TopNotch, which is an extremely strong card against Hoax, and another Top character in my hand and was trying to draw the AI into playing a strong support I could get rid of. It wasn't playing nicely.

Fight 3:

(Got another Top gang member and decided it's now or never)

Khind plays TopShot.
Khind announces 2 earth.
Hoax moves Enthrall Opposition to leadership area.
Hoax plays Helkomedes the Rhetorician.
Hoax announces 3 earth.
Khind plays TopGun.
Khind announces 4 earth.
Hoax moves Trebuchet of Fear to discard pile.
Hoax retreats.
Khind attracts 1 dragon. (Hoax 1-0)

Fight 4:

Hoax plays Zedemikras the Brain.
Hoax announces 4 fire.
Khind plays CoolKid.
Khind plays CoolCat.
Khind announces 4 fire.
Hoax plays Muster Reinforcements.
Hoax plays Sarogakanas the Ancient.
Khind moves NoClue to discard pile.
Khind moves Drown Resistance to leadership area.

(That could have really gutted my hand, but it pulled just about the best cards I could have hoped for)

Hoax plays Potion of Prodigious Passion.
Hoax announces 5 fire.
Khind plays Blow Whistle of Friendship.
Khind takes CoolCub into hand.
Khind plays CoolCub.
Khind announces 6 fire.
Hoax plays Bethenitana the Storyteller.
Hoax plays Inscrutable Armor.
Hoax announces 2 fire.

(awwww man.)

Khind plays NoNo.
Khind announces 3 fire.
Hoax plays Vetraskedas the Sceptic.
Hoax announces 3 fire.
Khind plays Open Lucky Bag of Life.

(drew TopShot AND TopGun back. Woot)

Khind plays TopShot.
Khind plays TopGun.
Khind announces 4 fire.
Hoax moves Brain Drain to discard pile.

(THAT'S what I'm talkin' about)

Hoax plays Genathones the Blind.
Hoax plays Tome of Wisdom.
Hoax announces 5 fire.
Khind plays TopNotch.
Khind uses TopNotch special text.
Hoax moves Tome of Wisdom to discard pile.
Khind announces 6 fire.
Hoax moves Thirkomedas the Serene to discard pile.
Hoax plays Trigger Brainstorm.
Hoax plays Hank Highflyer Hawk.
Hoax announces 0 fire.

(Pfft, ruined my party. Thankfully he had no boosters/supports to play with it)

Khind plays NoRespect.
Khind plays Fearsome Chant.

(I held onto that for a while, but after HHH I wanted a contingency in case he pulled something spectacular)

Khind announces 0 fire.
Hoax plays Redamikanas the Cartographer.
Hoax announces 2 fire.
Khind plays Ketharkopas the Astronomer.
Khind announces 2 fire.
Hoax plays Ciklarethas the Bitter.
Hoax announces 3 fire.
Khind plays TopDog.
Khind uses TopDog special text.
Khind plays TopBanana.
Khind announces 4 fire.
Hoax moves Nirwadas the Traveler to discard pile.
Hoax retrieves Ciklarethas the Bitter.
Hoax plays Ledinemras the Monk.
Hoax announces 4 fire.
Khind plays FunFlap.
Khind plays FunFlip.
Khind plays Gluing Dust.
Khind announces 4 fire.

(at this point I'm pretty sure I have this, but I've got to play it out right and keep extra card expenditure to a minimum)

Hoax plays Ciklarethas the Bitter.
Hoax plays Battling Boomerang.
Hoax announces 5 fire.
Khind plays FunFlop.
Khind plays Laughing Gas.

(I know I'm going to be forced to hit 7 power soon and Hoax still has Duplicator of Strength out. This prevents his mutant from changing the fight to earth)

Khind announces 6 fire.
Hoax retrieves Battling Boomerang.
Hoax retrieves Ciklarethas the Bitter.
Hoax plays Athradysas the Seeker.
Hoax plays Battling Boomerang.
Hoax announces 7 fire.
Khind plays FunFair.
Khind announces 9 fire.
Hoax retrieves Battling Boomerang.
Hoax plays Var-dis-Nar.
Hoax announces 4 fire.
Khind plays FunFun.
Khind announces 18 fire.
Hoax retreats.
Khind attracts 2 dragons. (Khind 1, Hoax 0)

Longest fight I think I've ever had, spending 18 cards and needing to hit 18 power before finally winning 2 dragons. I'm not feeling really confident about the game, though - I know Ciklarethas is probably gonna be good for a dragon and I'm getting low on cards.

Fight 5:

Hoax plays Ciklarethas the Bitter.
Hoax announces 3 earth.
Khind plays NoStopping.
Khind plays NoClass.
Khind plays Oath of Khindship.
Khind announces 5 earth.
Hoax retrieves Ciklarethas the Bitter.
Hoax plays Ciklarethas the Bitter.
Hoax plays Duplicator of Strength.
Hoax announces 6 earth.
Khind retreats.
Hoax attracts 1 dragon. (0-0)

At this point I have three cards remaining to Hoax's four and mine have no synergy at all. To be able to use my mutant, I'm going to have to give away a dragon, which at this point I don't think will be a problem.

Fight 6:

Khind plays CoolCop.
Khind announces 2 fire.
Hoax plays Wogarathoras the Gloomy.
Hoax plays Ballista of Confusion.
Hoax announces 6 fire.
Khind retreats.
Hoax attracts 1 dragon. (Hoax 1-0)

Fight 7: (Here goes nothin'.)

Khind plays NoStyle.
Khind announces 3 fire.
Hoax plays Penemikanas the Paranoid.
Hoax plays Battling Boomerang.
Hoax announces 4 fire.
Khind plays Den-bal-Ton.
Khind announces 8 earth.
Hoax retreats.
Khind attracts 1 dragon.
Game over
Khind wins 1 crystal.

Really can't get any closer. Because Penemikanas is weaker in fire (2) than NoStyle (3), Hoax was forced to play the boomerang, which lost the game for it. phew!
