The Best 5-Cost Cards (Middle third)

Welcome to the middle part of the 5 costs, that part where you throw all the average cards in and don't really care about its particular ranking. Almost all of the cards are pretty strong, so one shouldn't read too much into rank differences here. Keep in mind that we only had ~37 voters this year, so one would expect some stronger fluctuations here.


#74 ▲2 Inn (Hinterlands)
Weighted Average:
38%
Unweighted Average:
38%
Median:
34%
Standard Deviation:
19%

Inn roughly stays where it is. Making use of the on-gain effect is often essential to make this card work well in your deck. One has to be mindful of the negative net draw of this card, which often makes it inconvenient to have in your deck.
#73 ▼3 Charm (Empires)
Weighted Average:
39%
Unweighted Average:
41%
Median:
35%
Standard Deviation:
18%

Charm loses a few places. Gaining multiple 5's with it is great, but it is often hard to get there fast enough. It's difficult to time your first purchase of this correctly, and often the window is quite narrow.
#72  Courtier (Intrigue)
Weighted Average:
39%
Unweighted Average:
40%
Median:
40%
Standard Deviation:
16%

A new card; yet it has one of the lowest standard deviations in this list. The synergies are obvious, and it's fun to make this card do stuff but it's not quite enough to make it one of the top cards.
#71 ▲10 Seaway (Adventures)
Weighted Average:
40%
Unweighted Average:
36%
Median:
32%
Standard Deviation:
20%

One of the big winners in this list. The median is closer to last year's rank but it profits from a few very high ranks aswell as one top 10 vote. One of the cheapest ways to get multiple buys in your deck with a super low opportunity cost, you probably want to get this in every engine you build just for the utility those buys provide to you. The weighted score is already significantly higher, I can see this gain a few more ranks in the future.
#70 ▼17 Embassy (Hinterlands)
Weighted Average:
40%
Unweighted Average:
44%
Median:
44%
Standard Deviation:
20%

Embassy falling further and further from ist glory past. Just like Duke, non-engine strategies just aren't a thing anymore that happens frequently. The draw of Embassy doesn't really work in engines, which explains the steady downfall of this card
#69 ▲10 Market (Base)
Weighted Average:
40%
Unweighted Average:
42%
Median:
39%
Standard Deviation:
19%

Market rising again seems a little crazy to me. We've seen a few decent ways to get +buy already, this one costs quite a lot and provides little more than a cantrip +buy. Really shines in strong decks with weaker draw, otherwise it's a little expensive
#68 ▼16 Jester (Cornucopia)
Weighted Average:
40%
Unweighted Average:
46%
Median:
46%
Standard Deviation:
23%

Another big loser of this list. This card being super fun probably obscured our vision for a long time. You can't really rely on this card doing the stuff you want it to do, so it's risky to have this as your payload. Playing one of them a couple times before piles are running will still be useful very often, though.
#67 ▲3 Trading Post (Intrigue)
Weighted Average:
40%
Unweighted Average:
40%
Median:
35%
Standard Deviation:
23%

It trashes and gives you economy that turn. Opening with it often wins you games, so do that if you can. Otherwise, it often turn into a sad trasher cause it is so slow.
#66  Cobbler (Nocturne)
Weighted Average:
41%
Unweighted Average:
48%
Median:
48%
Standard Deviation:
19%

Another night card! The unweighted score is quite a bit higher, but it's too early to make any judgement calls here. It's worse in Nocturne heavy games because you want to gain action cards with this that are useful at the start of your turn and not other night cards. It's an interesting concept, but a duration workshop that is so expensive might just be too slow, key piles might be getting low already once you can play this regularly.
#65 ▲6 Trade (Adventures)
Weighted Average:
42%
Unweighted Average:
40%
Median:
43%
Standard Deviation:
18%

Trade is getting a little more love. It's a great economy boost if that is what you need and can make money strategy work occasionally.
#64  Idol (Nocturne)
Weighted Average:
43%
Unweighted Average:
47%
Median:
48%
Standard Deviation:
18%

Another kingdom treasure that isn't at the bottom of the list! Play your Idol before your treasures, often that is maximizing the utility of the boons. Most of them are awkward to receive in the buy phase anyway, so I'm not sure if it can keep the rank here. Atleast it curses, too! You will need to build quite a bit to do that, though.
#63 ▼10 Baker (Guilds)
Weighted Average:
44%
Unweighted Average:
47%
Median:
43%
Standard Deviation:
15%

Baker loses a bunch of places, slowly but steadily getting closer to the bottom part of this list. This is the peddler variant with the highest utility, but at the end of the day it's still a Peddler. Those things that you should be geting for free, not pay horrendous sums of coins. And yes, a couple tokens are nice, especially if you don't get the same amount of coins every turn. Just don't overdo it.
#62 ▼3 Council Room (Base)
Weighted Average:
46%
Unweighted Average:
44%
Median:
48%
Standard Deviation:
21%

It draws a lot of cards, but gives your opponent a free card (aka Lab) which a lot of people hate, which is why it got so many low rankings. It's often hard to evaluate how much you are helping your opponent compared to the use you can make out of the draw, so play around it carefully but don't underestimate what +4 cards can do for you. Especially when it is the only draw.
#61 ▼20 Bustling Village (Empires)
Weighted Average:
46%
Unweighted Average:
45%
Median:
41%
Standard Deviation:
23%

Super high standard deviation, and lots of ranks lost. Getting through 5 Settlers is often tough, most decks don't like waiting for villages that long so it is understandable that other villages are rated more highly. Should the settlers run for one reason or another, this card is of course nice to have if you mange to draw it in your starting hand.
#60 ▲6 Festival (Base)
Weighted Average:
47%
Unweighted Average:
48%
Median:
42%
Standard Deviation:
18%

And another village! This one doesn't draw a card, so that's suboptimal aswell. But it provides you with a free Woodcutter instead, so that is something you want, ocassionally.
#59 ▼15 Distant Lands (Adventures)
Weighted Average:
47%
Unweighted Average:
47%
Median:
45%
Standard Deviation:
25%

The next alt-VP card that lost several ranks. Having more ways to get VP apparently hurt the reputation of this card aswell. But we're getting close to the middle of the rankings, so cards that got here will all be strong ones, this one being no exception.
#58 ▼3 Bandit Camp (Dark Ages)
Weighted Average:
48%
Unweighted Average:
47%
Median:
44%
Standard Deviation:
22%

Bandit camp roughly stays where it is. You really want to be trashing a lot and get some draw to make this card really shine. Drawing the spoils the same turn you gain them is the way to keep your deck together without the spoils getting in the way. The card has a fairly high standard deviation, which is probably explained by nature of the card: Sometimes it's a great village that gives you free payload, someitmes it just sucks because it kills your draw. Both of those experience meet somewhere in the middle of those here in this ranking.
#57 ▲6 Merchant Guild (Guilds)
Weighted Average:
49%
Unweighted Average:
46%
Median:
43%
Standard Deviation:
19%

This one is tough to comment on for me. Playing several of them and making use of the buys often lets you empty the Provinces after a fe turns, but getting there is really hard with the limited economy the Guild provides when you only get one or two of them in play.
#56 ▲15 Plunder (Empires)
Weighted Average:
49%
Unweighted Average:
50%
Median:
47%
Standard Deviation:
22%

Another big winner here. The VP often comes relatively late in the game, since you often draw your deck already once those get uncovered. In my experience, that is often too late to make a huge difference, especially if you don't get 4 or 5 of them. But most of you seem to have made different experiences.
#55 ▲7 Artificer (Adventures)
Weighted Average:
50%
Unweighted Average:
47%
Median:
46%
Standard Deviation:
17%

Artificer jumps a few places ahead. People that are more skiled value this more, which isn't surprising as it is really hard to make the most out of it (I doubt many people will claim they are good with this card). Always look out for synergies with this and remember that it topodecks the gains so you can make a lot of complicated stuff happen with this.
#54 ▼15 Legionary (Empires)
Weighted Average:
51%
Unweighted Average:
52%
Median:
54%
Standard Deviation:
21%

I'm glad the hype around this card died down a little. It takes a while until the attack part of this goes live, until then your opponent should have gotten plenty of draw to make of for the nasty attack. I expect this to fall a few more ranks over the next few years.
#53 ▼4 Relic (Adventures)
Weighted Average:
52%
Unweighted Average:
48%
Median:
49%
Standard Deviation:
21%

And another handsize attack! Brutal together with Legionary, otherwise it's more annoying than devastating. But the opportunity cost to play this attack is often low, so you often want to get this, it makes your opponent dud once in a while.
#52 ▲6 Archive (Empires)
Weighted Average:
53%
Unweighted Average:
52%
Median:
50%
Standard Deviation:
18%

Archive, another card that is difficult to play around. You don't want to hide cards that you need to play, but storing away cards for your next turn or just keeping that Estate out forever is quite useful very often. It's hard to control your deck and be consistent if it's the only draw, but it is a nice support often and can be useful in most decks that aren't super thin.
#51 ▲5 Storyteller (Adventures)
Weighted Average:
54%
Unweighted Average:
54%
Median:
57%
Standard Deviation:
20%

A great draw card in decks that have lots of treasures, either voluntarily or involuntarily. The difficult part is often to get one into your starting hand, so having cards on the board that help you with this are often great to have. If you manage that, you are often able to get some big turns even with thick decks which makes this a great card. Just be careful you don't spend to much of your economy drawing if you rely on said economy to do stuff. Also, don't try crowning Black markets with this at home.
#50 ▼4 Catacombs (Dark Ages)
Weighted Average:
55%
Unweighted Average:
54%
Median:
53%
Standard Deviation:
20%

Drawing cards is really good, espcecially more than +2. This one even lets you choose, a nice effect for decks that aren't super thin,
#49  Patrol (Intrigue)
Weighted Average:
56%
Unweighted Average:
56%
Median:
56%
Standard Deviation:
17%

Look at that, this one draws too! It also lets you scout for cards you can draw afterwards, isn't that neat.
#48 ▲26 Outpost (Seaside)
Weighted Average:
56%
Unweighted Average:
51%
Median:
48%
Standard Deviation:
25%

Probably the winner of this list, or probably all lists. The better decks we are able to build, the more this card just doubles your output in a turn. Just because it has that potential it can't be overstated how good this card can be. Of course, sometimes it's just a dud, but if you mange to get it to work, it will pay off really quickly.
#47 ▲17 Forum (Empires)
Weighted Average:
57%
Unweighted Average:
51%
Median:
55%
Standard Deviation:
21%

Sifting without losing handsize is valued a lot more highly aswell here, especially highly ranked people are beginning to like this card. You would like to have this in pretty much any deck if getting thin isn't happening super fast. It can never really hurt you, so it's a great way to establish consistency. Also, look out for the hands where you can buy this + another component.
#46 ▲7 Triumph (Empires)
Weighted Average:
58%
Unweighted Average:
55%
Median:
61%
Standard Deviation:
31%

Above 30% Standard deviation! A last place, a bunch of top 10 places and alot in between, except not much around the actual rank as one might expect. I know there has been a lot of controversial discussion about this card, the opinion ranging from second best alt-VP to mediocre event. We will see what future rankings will bring. Personally, I expect this to rise even higher, as this can get you a lot of points quite cheaply.
#45 ▲2 Rabble (Prosperity)
Weighted Average:
58%
Unweighted Average:
58%
Median:
59%
Standard Deviation:
17%

Another draw card, it punishes your opponent for greening too early, Not the most exciting effect, but it nonetheless strong and it incentivizes you to build a little more.
#44 ▼2 Swamp Hag (Adventures)
Weighted Average:
59%
Unweighted Average:
61%
Median:
64%
Standard Deviation:
19%

Swamp Hag has a fairly high median, but the average is quite a bit lower. It is a conditional curser every other turn, but atleast you give your opponent something to think about on his turn, at least. If you can play a bunch of them consistently, your opponent will have to adapt their strategy fairly quickly, so it's often worth going for if the curses will hurt them.
#43 ▲13 Journeyman (Guilds)
Weighted Average:
59%
Unweighted Average:
57%
Median:
58%
Standard Deviation:
17%

A puzzling jump in ranks for our Traveller, I have no explanation besides variance for this. I consider almost all of the previous Smithy variants stronger than this one, but often it doesn't make a big difference so I can see Journeyman getting ahead aswell.
#42Werewolf (Nocturne)
Weighted Average:
59%
Unweighted Average:
58%
Median:
60%
Standard Deviation:
19%

The 4th strongest Noctune card in this list. It's cool that you can make use of the draw cards that you wont need that turn, so you can slightly overbuy them and hope the Hexes behave.
#41 ▲4 Summon (Promo)
Weighted Average:
60%
Unweighted Average:
54%
Median:
59%
Standard Deviation:
24%

Another controversial card! Skilled players like this a lot more. Summoning a card speeds up your deck by quite a lot, so you want to consider summoning whenever it is on the board and you want to keep the cards you are summoning. Especially in the opening and first shuffle you can often do crazy things by getting an effect immediately instead of one shuffle later.
#40 ▲3 City (Prosperity)
Weighted Average:
60%
Unweighted Average:
59%
Median:
58%
Standard Deviation:
17%

Finally a card everyone can agree on. The minigame of leveling them up is fun, just make sure you can actually use the extra draw once it's there.
#39 ▲1 Soothsayer (Guilds)
Weighted Average:
60%
Unweighted Average:
62%
Median:
58%
Standard Deviation:
18%

Soothsayer managed to stay where it was, pretty much. Cursing is still good, free Golds are often nice in decks where you get Curses.
#38 ▼5 Tactician (Seaside)
Weighted Average:
61%
Unweighted Average:
64%
Median:
65%
Standard Deviation:
19%

Tactician falls down 5 places, which is a bit sad to see for me. It provides the most consistency you can get, probably but of course it comes at quite a cost, not being able to play Treasure and Night cards. Having more of those aswell as getting more strong utility cards might explain why this one falls a little out of favour.

A big thanks to markus for doing what would have been half the work for me by doing the formatting.

When you find spelling mistakes, feel free PM me somewhere and I will correct them tonight. Or you can post them in this thread and derail the undoubtedly useful discussion this list will bring, that's up to you.

Tomorrow ceviri will present the top cards, be prepared for surprises :)

Dominion League / S24 Champion Match: Wednesday(!) December 6th, 19:00 UTC
« on: December 04, 2017, 02:00:35 pm »
After our extended Championship break we've finally reached the end of another League season, which means another Champion match! This time, two previous champion, Rabid and markus are facing off each other. Both finished the regular season with 17,5 points, so we've got another really close final, almost as close as the last one! This time, the second tiebreaker which is their face to face record, would decide the championship in case of another tie. Markus won said face to face match, so Rabid will need 3,5 points to win the league two consecutive times and markus needs 3 points to win another title.

The stream will be at www.twitch.tv/dominionstreams , with Burning Skull and RTT providing commentary.

Dominion League / S23 Champion Match: Sunday September 10th, 20:00 UTC
« on: September 08, 2017, 11:28:54 pm »
Hey everyone,

the season is not quite finished, but we already have a date for the Championship match! This Sunday, the top finishers of what has been the closest A division so far will battle it out for the title of 23rd League Champion. The first and last person in the group were only seperated by 2 points! Coming out on top and therefore in the Championship Match are aku chi and Rabid, who are unsurprisingly tied in points. Having tied their regular game aswell, Rabid managed to get very slightly ahead on the third tie breaker, which means they need 3 out of the 6 games to be declared the winner. Consequently, aku chi will need 3,5 points to be victorious.

Both of them already made one final appearance, but didn't manage to secure the title. So the winner will be our sixth unique League champion!

Stream, as always, will be over here:

www.twitch.tv/dominionstreams

The League will take a break after this to make time for the Dominion Online Championship on ShuffleiT. We'll see you all back in October for Season 24, hopefully with Nocturne!

Game Reports / Sometimes you gotta bid $1
« on: June 29, 2017, 12:27:52 am »
Just had this amusing game; Kingdom was:

Vineyard, Crossroads, Scheme, Ironworks, Sacrifice, Highway, Trading Post, Treasury, Wharf, Forge, Scouting Party and Mountain Pass

Pretty good support for Vineyard, which my opponent went for, but I felt the engine was good enough to get 8 Provinces. I opened 5/2 and decided to skip Trading Post, trying to thin with Forge. Well, things didn't go that well for me, I didn't really get a lot of Wharfs into play (or in my deck) and my turns where quite mediocre while my opponent almost emptied the piles. Fortunately, they decided to empty Schemes, Crossroads and Vineyards instead of Ironworks so that got me a bit of time, but it was still quite hopeless. So my last hope was Mountain Pass, allowing my opponent to make a mistake. I was ready to pass to a bid, but I got even got $12. I think my opponent thought he could still by Vineyards with debt, but oh well. Friendly reminder not to overbid :)

Also, how was my build order? Surely I should have gotten more Wharfs after the first 1-2 Highways, right?

Game Reports / I built the Forager deck!
« on: June 01, 2017, 07:13:58 am »
Do you remember the periods with no ranked matchmaking, either on MF or shuffle where you often played exotic strategies, often the infamous minigame of leveling up your Trade Route/Forager? Well, I did that today aswell so I guess I've come full circle.

Also, the game is not that interesting, I just want to introduce the tool a redditor made:

http://windominion.com/EASwPly

It's not as good as salvager was to view logs, but atleast it has a nice visual aid for now if you want to look through a game. If you have ideas how to improve it, /u/magicjj is the creator and their post is still on the reddit frontpage. The code is also openscource if someone wants to improve it themselves.

Regarding the game: I think my opponent made the mistake of trashing their second forager, which opened the door for my deck as he couldn't get thin. The pileout was kinda cool, too, needing to develop an estate gained by trashing HG. If I hadn't been able to end the game there, I woul'd ve gotten a second develop on my last turn to improve food ratios and tried to go for double province turns.

« on: May 24, 2017, 09:51:45 pm »
It's time for a 5th champion! How am I so sure? Well, neither of the participants even got to the final so far, that makes it a pretty safe bet. Due to their league performance, aku chi has a 3 game lead over drsteelhammer, so aku will only need to win two games to secure the title.

The six kingdoms will be random

The stream will be here: www.twitch.tv/dominionstreams , the commentators will be announced when they're known.

Dominion League / [Poll] Time commitment to the League
« on: April 25, 2017, 08:34:43 pm »
Hey everyone,

since the suggestion of shorter seasons was somewhat popular among some of our players, we decided to get some more opinions about this issue. The League has been 6 game machtes for 21 seasons now, but removing duds and adding engine cards for the last two expansions added some complexity which extended the average length of the matches, atleast it is perceived that way. So what do you think? Feel free to vote aswell if you're not currently in the League, aslong as you have the intention of possibly joining under one format.

Some clarification:

match= Player A vs. Player B
game=one game of dominion

Option 2: adding some time opposed to shortening matches is the other thing that could be done do reduce the dominion time per week, also it might be possible to schedule 3 games per session if they take longer since you have more freedom in scheduling.

option 4: was thrown into account for the added variance that 4 game matches bring in, how exactly that format would be implemented would have to be seen.

option 5: probably not going to happen, but I'm glad you like playing dominion! (votes for this probably only tilt the results to the status quo, since we don't want to alienate too many people)

option 6: You would sign up with your desired amount of games you would like to play. If you want to play 4, you will play everyone in your division for four games. If you sign up with more games, you will play more games against opponents who did the same, and 4 games against people who only play short seasons.

Feel free to suggest other alternatives, or discuss the options provided.

This Sunday, MicQsenoch and DG will fight for the crown in the repeat final of S18. MicQ will start with a one point lead due to the season standings.

Since that was the first season featuring Empires, we decided to celebrate that by adding one Landmark to each of the games (+1 optional Landscape, so it'll be 1-2Landscapes for the match). There are the Landmarks that the randomizer gave us:

Tomb, Triumphal Arch,  Baths, Keep, Wall, Defiled Shrine

The games will feature those in that order. Caster will be announced at a later date.
