Those Silk Merchants are surprisingly well-suited for battle; you should definitely Recruit them.

Is it just me or do Villain and Silk Merchant seem pretty weak?

Ducat is this close to being strictly better than Candlestick Maker and CSM is alright so I guess Ducat is at least alright.
Apart from that you actually cant use the coin token the turn you play Ducat? (Modulo the usual suspects)
Ah, yes, that makes it significantly different.

Villain seems a bit weak, I agree. It could get significantly better with cost reduction though. Silk Merchant is fine; +2 cards +1 buy seems okay for $3, and it basically costs $3 as it gives you a Coffers back, and then you get the Villager on top, which means that on a play of your choice this can be a Lab+

Ducat is this close to being strictly better than Candlestick Maker and CSM is alright so I guess Ducat is at least alright.
Moreover, it really is pretty much the same as Candlestick Maker. I'm slightly confused why this card exists. Maybe the Copper exchange thing is more useful than it looks.

Faust seems trustworthy since he's one of my absolutely-can't-get-lynched buddies.
Shh, you shouldn't talk about your reads!

I have definite information telling that gkrieg is in fact scum.

I have a plan.
Oh, I would like to have that.

Before Priest, how many ways were there to generate $ during your buy phase? Was it just +$1 token on Crown/Plunder/Rocks?
Well, almost all Treasure cards :P

The unique thing Priest does is generate $ after you have already bought a card in the same buy phase.

Recruiter / Fortress. Awesome Engine or just Village Idiot on steroids?
Just played that, I ended the game with 25 Villagers. There was also Priest...

Priest would be broken with Watchtower and Travelling Fair. If you play two Priests and have a Watchtower in hand, you can alternate between buying Travelling fairs and Coppers (then curses) for a net gain of 112 coins, giving you more than enough money to buy all the provinces.
The worst thing about this is how extremely tedious it would be to actually play out online.

Scholar is like Professor Oak from Pokémon, which is cute.
I had to squint a little, but I can see it now!

I've just noticed that 1 Scheme and any number of Mountain Villages would be self-sustaining:

Start your turn with a Mountain Village in hand. Cascade through playing and drawing all the Mountain Villages in your discard pile. When you play the final Mountain Village, draw Scheme and play it. During clean-up, topdeck one Mountain Village.

That's not overpowered. It might not even be a winning play. But messing about with these new cards is going to be so much fun!
This only works if you have at least 4 cards left in your draw pile at the end of your turn, so you don't cause a reshuffle.

Wow, the rest of turn part for Priest stacks. KC-Priest in at the beginning of a normal turn becomes "+$12. Trash your hand."
Priest combo decks are hilarious. My favorite so far is Priest-Mint (with +buy).

A guaranteed triple Lab via Seer after a 5/2 opening looks game-breaking crazy. If there is a junker at $5 you want Seer even more and if there is a trasher at $5 chances are extremly high that you can get it after the first shuffle.
Seer can't draw Coppers...

EDIT: Ninja'd

I feel that there should be some rule that disqualifies a triple (A,B,C) if there is a strategy D that beats all of A, B, C on the same board.

It's funny how Experiment is just Expedition turned into a card and they share the first 4 letters.

Hm, those Lab variants seem not too interesting to me, but, Mountain Village, Priest, Scholar are all rather exciting.

Random art complaint: It's nice that we get an equal share of female characters now, but I dislike the tendency of portaying them young and attractive. Here we have two old dudes and two younger women.

I have another easy one. Although the Curse tile is empty I play a Sea Hag for a win. Why? Hint: It has absolutely nothing to do with Peddler, Leprechaun, Library or any other Action card interaction.

Well, i’d say you discard opponent’s tunnel and they accidentally take a gold with Bandit Fort, but i feel there’s another answer

If Sea Hag has to be the last thing to resolve before the win, then I don't really see another solution. If not, then there are tons - Swindler, Chariot Race, but also just discarding the opponent's Village to cause a dud for them.

It may also be

Well it leads to some unintended behaviour, like being able to play your Estate T1 and trash it with Bonfire.

Enchantress 4: Timing - If a player plays an Enchanted Attack card, Reactions and Urchin will trigger first, as normal.
Now how do you get to play an Enchanted Attack card while having Urchin in play? (There may totally be a solution for that puzzle.)

On a tangent: How do you use "every other" in English so that it doesn't take the meaning of "Every other Wednesday I do sports"?
You could always say "all other things" rather than "every other thing".

I think this should not be discussed in here any further as I believe it refers to an ongoing game. If you are unsure what a player means in an ongoing game, it is better to ask them directly in that thread.

What is WV?
Not any standard abbreviation that I am aware of.

I read the first one (Justice?).  It was heavy.
I think the subsequent ones are easier reads because you're already familiar with the universe and also they don't have separate timelines.
