I didn't set out to not recruit any units, there were just never any options without serious backtracking (which is a MK no-no).

The first unit I had a chance to get was a Sorcerer at the green city, but that was at the start of turn 6, and I still had to discover the final city. Plus, I wanted to see if I could take the last city without recruiting any units.

I took me to the very last round, but I just sneaked by to defeat the second city.

This game had some terrible luck, (no recruitable units, twice I flipped monsters and dragons with immunity to my attack or magic card, final last blue city had 3/4 magic immune. Multiple fights I had to dump my hand and retreat.

It also had some awesome luck by getting the best spells demolish, earthquake, and whirlwind, and 3 forts literally in a row. Last space was impassible, but I just pulled temporal portal to skip over the water spaces.

I wish I documented everything from the start, I doubt I'll ever have another game like this. It's amazing how varied each game can be.

I wound up scoring 186 points with a massive 14 wounds in my deck (no units to block for me).

With 14 wounds in deck, did you ever have to do a slow recovery?
How did you manage to not get knocked out?

Never had to do a slow recovery, but at least once per round I had to do a standard recovery.

Remember, knocked out is only if you receive wounds during combat >= your card draw level, so you can have as many wounds in your hand at the start.

I got knocked out once, but i was able to dump most of my had before, and thankfully I had motivation to pull 2 cards next turn (the first one was a wound, the second wasn't, what a pull) The game would have effectively been over if I hadn't.

Yeah, it was Arythea. No way I could have done this with anyone else. I used her wound -> +2 talent almost every turn, and the one that turns wounds into red/black mana every chance i got.
