Yes you can. It's actually mentioned in the rules, page 6: "If the first Bakuto you played is trapped [...] the next Bakuto you will play will cost you two (2) cards from your hand to recruit, no matter what".

The game's called tactics for a reason: you cannot plan a strategy. You can only rely on what you have in hand. Trapping Avenger X or destroying it is your best bet. Forcing your opponent to discard should help as well.
Otherwise, just pass, let your opponent exhaust his options, and then when your cards are free, strike back. This game is the perfect example of "it's not over 'till it's over". You can always come back.

problem is he gives you an extra turn and he is not free so he cant be destroyed, and there arent level 1s that can trap..but yeah you can always come back i guess. unless if he keeps trapping your last monster,and has like 6-7 gobs and you have 1-2 it was pretty unfair tbh, anyway thanks

The player who plays Avenger X will eventually run out of cards in hand or cards to trap. Worst case scenario, you discard 4 cards, play 3, and have 0 cards in hand, refilling up to 7 at the start of your next round, with all your cards free. Your opponent can only mutate that many times, and Avenger X only gives an extra turn when it comes into play. You should be able to play a red skulled card at one point to weaken its position or eventually dispatch him. Trapping him is an option as well. It really depends on what you have in hand.

With that being said, Gosu is notoriously know for being an unbalanced game

Use goblins with extra turns when come into play, and focusing on one color in the beginning. You can include colors later by mutating. Goblins with low mutation cost (like the Recruiter or Prescient) are a great way to get more colors later

He is! Especially when played on turn 1. The best way to deal with him is to draw a lot of cards early. Avenger X is pretty aggressive and if you can outdraw your opponent, you can withstand the attack, force them to pass first and still come up with enough combos to pass ahead. Goblins like Seer (Seer X even better), Time, or Prahs are really good to gain you time.
