when it's late in the game and you draw two and you're like should I get an estate, first check if there is Baths

Forest - you find the old Woodcutter in the forest, but he's old and depressed so he's not as good

what a downer. he's been discontinued. he was taught to tie his identity to his profession.

I think looking for another term is kind of missing the point.

Imho, the whole thread is missing the point since page 2.

Well, that depends. Does anyone know what the point of this thread was in the first place?

That's easy! The point is that boons are good.

yes!! yes! that's exactly what i was getting at

but seriously, the boon-givers are all pretty good. None of them earth-shattering, but pretty good.

Got it on turn 10 -- but only after many failings where I didn't follow OP's advice

All the boons are pretty good. It's annoying how you can't predict them, but still, you should probably be finding ways to take them.

someone probably already said this but the presence of Changeling makes Rats a pretty decent opening

Plague/Greed is interesting. Plague puts the curse in the best possible place for the hex-ee, and Greed puts the copper in the worst possible place, but copper > curse. Depends on the kingdom, but it's not unreasonable to expect a kingdom where you'd rather be Plague-d.

Dominion General Discussion / autoplay gotchas
« on: January 24, 2018, 11:52:31 pm »
Autoplay is great. Occasionally, it is terrible.

This sounds like one of those puzzles, but I discarded a Faithful Hound with an Inn the other day after having drawn my thin deck, planning to draw it back with a cantrip, and it got set aside; I needed it to trigger my Magic Lamp (maybe it was Leprechaun) and lost. (It's not a true gotcha in that I also could have discarded some other stuff, had I been smarter).

Any other autoplay problems? I've turned autoplay off for the travelers; making the decision matters too often.

I suspect it's healthiest to play with most of the autoplays off, except Crown, Changeling, and Coin of the Realm. The problem is that you don't realize "hey, this is one of those boards where I might not always reveal my Moat" until your opponent plays the attack you didn't want to reveal Moat to.

Diplomat is not a good reaction to Soldier

Dominion General Discussion / what's up with cursed gold
« on: January 17, 2018, 11:45:25 pm »
how often should you play it?

To be fair, the fact that ehunt opened Leprechaun leads me to believe early Gold gaining is very important.

I would love to agree but my memory is that my play was indefensible.

ugh terrible draw...

Turn 2 - ehunt
e plays 3 Coppers.
e buys and gains a Steward.
e shuffles their deck.
e draws 3 Coppers, a Steward and a Leprechaun.

didn't turn out so bad!

Turn 3 - ehunt
e plays a Leprechaun.
e gains a Gold.
e takes Haunting.
e receives Haunting
e topdecks a Steward.
e discards Haunting.
e plays 3 Coppers.
e buys and gains a Steward.
e draws 3 Coppers, an Estate and a Steward.

the thing is, vampire isn't a very good card at all. it should be in the bottom third.

Dominion General Discussion / Re: How good is Goat?
« on: December 24, 2017, 09:10:49 am »
My sense is that Goat is a phenomenal card. Even if it didn't start in your deck, it utterly smokes, say, Loan. Is it worth skipping Chapel if Goat's on the board? Skipping masquerade?

But Loan cycles and is effectively worth 1$ more than Goat when trashing copper. Is the fact that Goat can trash Estates and doesn’t trip over Silvers and other copies of itself really enough to say that Goat smokes Loan?

I am talking about hypothetical Goat that you can buy, obviously Heirloom-Goat is a lot better than non-Heirloom Loan.

Good point on cycling. Trashing Estates is huge though, and Loan hitting a non-copper is really annoying -- although maybe it's roughly equal in probability to drawing Goat with nothing you want to trash?
