Possession is, I think, a card where I'd like a specific ban list that only applies to games featuring that particular card. (Way of the Horse, Way of the Butterfly, Ambassador, Masquerade are, I think, the main offenders.)

Heh, the AI creates a card that is strictly better than Woodcutter and yet probably not overpowered. Nice.

One that doesn't draw cards.

Ave Caesar, morituri te salutamus

I'm nothing interesting. A vanilla townie.

My read on MiX is that he is giving off town vibes, but I don't know how accurate that read is.

There's always a case for Jack, to be fair. I have no confidence in my ability to make reads and therefore very rarely make them.

It's strong, but it's not particularly nasty (you're just getting lots of extra turns for yourself rather than doing damage to your opponent).

I've had Possession/Way of the Horse. Now that one is nasty.

Lots of discussion happened while I was asleep. Let's poke a fellow lurker to see what gives.

I hadn't thought of vigilantes being negative utility, but it makes sense: they're essentially an exile of an arbitrary player, and such a player is more likely to be town than scum.

Saboteur, but that's long gone from the canonical sets. And various tricks with cost-reduction.

I've been celebrating my nephew's birthday. There was pizza and ice-cream.

Mind you, "cards that let you play cards outside of their intended phase" has been in the game for a very long time; Black Market was one of the earliest cards released.

Still /in.

Conclave doesn't stay in play if a Duration is played by it, no. Cards only stay in play with the Durations they played if either (a) they replayed them (using the keyword "replay") or (b) they played them more than once.

Rules Questions / Re: Weaver

Yes, for a long time the lose-track rule (or stop-moving rule) was: If a card is lost track of, it can't be moved (but it can still be played). But in 2021 a new rule was added: If a card is lost track of, it can't be played either - with the exception that Throne Room variants can replay it. So if you Throne Room a Mining Village and trash the Mining Village the first time you play it, you can still replay it. The new rule mainly limits interactions with Faithful Hound and Vassal, Village Green and Vassal, and discarding several Village Greens. Trail and Weaver work the same as Village Green.
Of course, if you're discarding several Village Greens in practice, what you'll probably do is activate the "play next turn" option with some of them rather than forcing a lose-track, but the option is there.

Workshop and friends suddenly like Port a lot better.

Plus how the hell is Bureaucrat banned more than Margrave?  That's absurd.
Everybody has access to Bureaucrat's expansion, all the time. The same is not true of Margrave.

(I'm guessing there are quite a lot of people on free accounts whose ban list reads {Witch, Bandit, Militia, Bureaucrat}.)

Festival/Library is a good engine, yes. (And yes, it's been known since Base Game 1.0 days.)

Rats isn't trash-for-benefit, either (the "benefit" is completely independent of what card you actually trash), but it's a trash-for-benefit enabler.

Villa + cost reduction is fun times in general. I remember one game where Villa, Quarry and Pathfinding were all present, and I was the first to get two Quarries in the same hand. By the end of that turn, my deck was now full of Bazaarkets.

You should, by the way, usually be willing to discard Gold to a Stables if the average card in your deck is better than a Copper. Which it tends to be except right at the start of the game.

Stables I rarely discard a silver with it and I have never discarded a gold with it. Just because you have doesnít mean I will. And so that leaves copper. Besides if you had a copper and a silver in your hand itís not like your going to choose to discard the silver over the copper anyways. No because that would be foolish. Which proves my point stables is better off as a copper strategy. Simply because itís the better treasure to discard.
Copper is the better treasure to discard there, yes, but not because it's any better intrinsically in that role - all treasures are equal there - but because it's really bad in any other role.

(This is also, incidentally, the reason a lot of local club chess is played on weekday evenings. It's not that weekday evenings are especially well-suited to local club chess, rather that they're really bad for any other form of competitive OTB chess.)

Trader getting swapped out for a blue dog would be very appropriate.

I suppose there is the option of bringing in eight Events, one of them a reskinning of Cache. Not very likely, I'll admit, but possible.
