Last week was German Masters. While I do have a fairly detailed look planned, I want to do a little exercise with the winning deck, Falling Toward Apotheosis by Benjamin Liebich.
We'll call it Give Me a Hand. I've set up the first turn with the deck and want your help walking me through the first turn, and only the first turn. You'll see the missions from the deck along with the opening hand of seven cards and the top seven cards of the draw deck, though those are hidden. Go through your first turn and clicking each card only when you draw a card. Once you have spent your seven counters, look at them all and tell me what you would consider your optimal play for the first turn. Let us know how your first time goes along with the optimal setup.
