2nd hand: 1g, 1g, 1g, 2 Forge Masters.
1st event: Holy War.
- Attack Stronghold. Play Master (1g, Master). Play Master (1g, Digging Machine). Stronghold secured.
- Buy Guardian for 5 gold.
- Purchase Pillage spending 2 influence.
I usually do that differently. Since the next turn i am going to draw the digging machine for sure and i have three golds in hand to buy guardian, i dont activate the ability of the forgemaster. I secure the second stronghold and, barring a bad luck drawing events or in the dice i'll have enought strength to beat Holy war.
It was so urgent getting the Guardian in hand?
