I've got beast synergies, I've got board clear, I've got traps. I've got the tools I need to make this work. But invariably my matches boil down to two patterns:
1. I try to deploy beasts early and get my synergies going, and they're easily picked off or traded one by one. This should at least deplete some of my enemy's removal, but nope, they never seem to run out of gas and eventually I do.
2. I hold back so I can play 2-3 beasts a turn and get some immediate synergies going. Meanwhile they rush some guys on the board and by the time I can actually get something together, they have an army and I'm down 1/3 or 1/2 health.
So if I rush, I can't get the beast army working. If I play slowly, I get rushed.
What am I missing here? How do I get my beasts on the job without them being wiped out every time before I can do anything with them?
