Credit to TurquoiseLink for the deck idea. This deck was easy laddering mainly because of all of the Mid-BM decks I was facing.

Always keep Cornerclub Gambler if you have the ring and if you're facing an agility opponent with ring try to mulligan for crushing blow for their gambler. Banelord is a great discard target that you can revive with Necromancer.

The combo you want to aim for is Banelord with a Shearpoint Dragon on board which will wipe an entire lane, but you won't have to depend on Shearpoint with the curses you've generated from the goblins.

Good cards to have in your starting hand are Thieves Guild/Fighters Guild Recruits and Sanctuary Pets for the defense. You don't always have to play your Scout's Reports right away because they are great triggers for Suran Pawnbroker's Plot ability.

If you can, try to save your curses for combos with Leaflurker/Shearpoint/Banelord. Don't worry about generating curses with Murkwater Shaman, I actually play him as a bait target for removal.

Your best Galyn target is Necromancer, other good targets would be Tazkad, Red Bramman, and Razum-Dar but it depends on what's in your hand and what you're facing.

So when do you go face? It's hard to say and it comes with play time and knowing what your opponent is playing but you won't want to go face unless you know you have the follow up to continue the pressure. You generally start getting aggressive with this deck around turn 7.
In Rocky I Mick tells him it will take 10 weeks of training 8 hours a day to be ready for this fight.

In Rocky II he trains for maybe 8 months using his wifes pregnancy as a reference for time.

In Rocky III there is about a 5 year time skip where he is the champ. Then he trains for about 6 months before the big fight.

Rocky IV he's gone for about 3 months up to 1 1/2 years. Using the age of his son as reference. his son goes from 9-13 and is the biggest time skip.

Another Movie detail is his training regiment in each movie is unique for each opponent. Rocky I The training consist of basically getting into fighting shape. Rocky is not worried about winning he just wants to go the distance. At one point Rocky is punching Frozen beef slabs at Paulie's job site. Paulie states "your breaking the ribs!" later pauly gets fires for this. During the fight against Apollo Rocky does indeed break Apollo's ribs. This allows Rocky to go the distance 15 rounds, but Apollo considers this a fluke and wants to prove it in the ring. Rematch.

In Rocky II Rocky fights Apollo again but this time he intends to win. Apollo is a fighter with lots of speed and dodging ability. Rocky Strength trains considerably more than previous training montage and the montage itself is twice as long. This is because the first fight was rushed to the boxing arena and the Rematch is not rushed to give both fighters time to recover (Apollo's Ribs & Rockys face) and train.

Rocky III Rocky Fights Clubber, an incredibly strong opponent. Apollo is back but this time he knows Rocky cannot beat Clubber. Apollo Trains Rocky and teaches Rocky how to dodge, (Rocky's style is to tire the opponent out with his face) speed and Stamina

Rocky IV Rock Fights the Russian who is 100% on steroids and being experimented on by Russian scientists. Rockies Training is MUCH longer and harder than his previous training methods. Rocky goes into the Russian Tundra. His training consists of Strength AND speed training. Something Rocky has never done before. Ivan Drago hits like a Brick and is damn near 7 feet tall.

Rocky V Rocky basically has his experience over his protege. While he is training his protege Rocky is also training himself, showing Tommy every move to make and how to punch. The Protege copies Rockies style but not his heart. Rocky seems to know every move Tommy Morrison is going to make.
