I am mostly interested in the opening buy decision for this game:http://dominion.isotropic.org/gamelog/201204/18/game-20120418-080819-c8e49dcf.html
Cards of Note:
Nobles, IGG, Merchant Ship, Golem, Horse Trader, Familiar, Lookout, Oracle.
Would you open Potion/Lookout (as my opponent did) or Potion/Silver (as I did)? Obviously, Potion/Lookout greatly increases the risk of missing the crucial familiar buy in turn 3/4, but if it works out, you are ahead in terms of trashing and building towards a golem/nobles/merchant ship/Horse Trader engine.
It worked out for my opponent at turn 3/4, and it seemed hard to catch up afterwards. Or did I miss opportunities afterwards?
