Hello everyone! After a series of somewhat competitive matches in the past month or two, there is a calm before the storm in the shape of friendly matches between random folks before the next league format. Long story short, I am playing versus a good friend of mine, a Fyreslayer. Traditionally I lost every single match versus him in 2.0, though I was not only a worse player than I am now (or so I think) but I also played Warriors almost entirely. This time around, I have somewhat expanded my repertoire of models and lists I like to play, though I still heavily dislike FoS lists if I can help it. Sadly, I only got the EotG model that I use sometimes as a Chad Chief, can't field 3 stegs like the meta suggests. So, what list can I make to do well versus strike first Hearthguards? Even a double shooting Bastiladon with all the buffs we have does 6 or so damage versus them. Sniping heroes is even harder with look out sir. Magic also kinda doesn't work with the Nulsidian Icon. All in all, I see no light at the end of the tunnel for me here, morale is broken in advance. Whatever I charge into them will die before activation, and the shooting I can realistically field does little versus the short gingers. 30 skinks do even less damage versus a block of 15 HG. I am legit lost at how to approach this matchup, as strike first doesn't really have counterplay that I can see to utilize. Any help is appreciated, thanks!
