Duchess, Moat, Doctor, Moneylender, Duke, Saboteur, Adventurer, Border Village, Hoard, Hunting Grounds
This was a really interesting and fun Duke mirror. There were several cards to support Duke - Duchess, Hoard and Border Village. I had a 5/2 opening and really didn't know what to do with it. Then I realized that buying a Duchy would give me a Duchess, so I opened Duchy, for the first time in my life.

My opponent (Rabid) tried to counter with Saboteurs which ended up not doing much (primarily trashing my Silvers). I didn't actually notice Saboteur at first and I was quite worried when he bought them. I wonder if I should have opened Saboteur/Duchess instead of Duchy.

I won the Duchy split 5/3 (probably because the Sabs were slowing him down) and he only manages to trash 1 Duchy and 1 Duke from me. I have the lead and buy the last Duchesses for the win.

I don't know why I won this. Was it luck, or was my opening better, or did I do tactically better decisions? Would another strategy have been better? I thought opening Doctor and going for engine for a while but then I got my super amazing idea of opening Duchy.

What could I have done better?
