Dominion General Discussion / Re: Dominion Data Mining: Card Rankings
« on: January 05, 2015, 07:38:57 pm »
So, does ordering a list based strictly on how often each card is gained really provide the most accurate definition of "best cards"?

No, but I don't think Forager is a good example of that. You're looking for some "doesn't hurt" cantrip, a la Great Hall or Pearl Diver.
Agreed, it just jumped out to me as a prime, abnormally high example--certainly I don't think it's better than Goons or Masquerade.

My thought is that some very high ranked cards on this list (a.k.a forager) are not actually that powerful, it's just that they almost never hurt (especially when they are often simply competing with silver).
EDIT: not that this list claimed to be the definitive best cards, but it provides some interesting context when comparing w/ the Qvist list.

baker > peddler

No, not with black market, as the coin token from baker can't be spent in Black Market, but $1 from Peddler can.

So does Highway>Peddler hold up?
Throne room/king's court/procession

Variants and Fan Cards / Re: Zero Dollar Card?

Donald has expressed before, and I agree, that Chapel's price is far best at two. Pricing in Dominion, as many have pointed out, is not solely based on card strength, but also on just what works well in making it a fun card.

I changed the nerf. Honestly though, I don't think it would be broken. Chapel certainly isn't...

Variants and Fan Cards / Zero Dollar Card?

$0 Action
+1 card
+1 action
You may trash a card from your hand
---------
When you gain this, gain two coppers and a curse.

This seems at first like it could be WAY overpowered--use this until you want to trash it with something else. However, I think it could work--it certainly wouldn't break the game, a zero dollar price point isn't much more ridiculous than $2, and it will ever really benefit you to have gobs of these. It's kind of the same concept as chapel, in a way.
Thoughts?

This has nothing to do with any movie, cartoon, or show whatsoever, but it is a thematic kingdom.
Happy fourth of July!!

King's Court (King George)
Militia (Obvious)
Council Room (Continental Congress)
Tactician (George Washington)
Royal Seal (Stamp acts)
Ambassador (Benjamin Franklin)
Bandit Camp (Valley Forge)

I'm rather surprised that people are hating on Cache of all things. I mean, yes, it's pretty weak the vast majority of the time, but there are FAR more pointless cards. (Pearl Diver, anyone?)

The thing about the pin is, well, you can always just resign as soon as it's set up.....

This thread is really derailing. To keep things on topic: I got engaged.

Ok, ok, you people are obviously just doing it for the free respect at this point.

Variants and Fan Cards / Re: A Duration/Ironworks/BoM hybrid
« on: June 17, 2014, 10:49:55 am »
The self-restriction seems like a good nerf. Also, I just realised, making this a duration allows it to miss the reshuffle more often, so that could count as a suitable weakness.

This seems basically like a super-armory, and as such is probably too strong for four. 5 might be a bit steep though….

Chapel, Village, Masquerade, Bridge, Remake, Saboteur, Goons, Possession, King's Court, Prince

I originally posted this in the "Fun Kingdom's" thread facetiously, fully expecting that it would be the least fun game of Dominion of all time. But looking at it now, I'm interested in it, since the pin can be blocked. There's also stuff with KC KC B B B, but KC saboteur and goons action could stop that. And then there's possession.
Thoughts?

Prince of Villages is a serious power on this board
I was also thinking prince of goons, with bridge.

I think my favorite 4 cost would in fact be something like a simple Smithy or Envoy.
Starting every turn with so many cards makes everything much easier.
I agree. It probably give you the chance to set up another Prince on a +Buy card.
+Buy certainly seems like it would be pretty important in some capacity in any Prince game--you have to make up the lost turns buying and connecting prince. Also why Colony games are better for Prince--you have more opportunities and more turns to make up the points.

I anticipate that prince will be much MUCH stronger in Colony games.
Also, is it just me, or does the guy in the picture look scarily close to baron?

Point taken. I don't know what would be best here though, truly. The thing about this board is The pin is blocked by Prince of Masquerades. Then there could be a way for KC KC B B B, but heavy saboteur and goons action could throw a wrench in that….. And then there's also something with KC-Possession that could help you out.

(Hint for those who may not have figured it out: Possible strategy in the spoiler text.)

From the "BoM as Feast?" thread:


Throne on a Band as a one-shot has a special ruling, unique to that situation, and that special ruling is why it works that way, in the technical sense. And the reason for that ruling was that the rulebook didn't address it, and I wanted it to work like people would think it would, and the other option (not doing anything the second time) was crazy counterintuitive.

True enough. I guess it boils down to the whole Procession vs Throne Room thing again, i.e. with Procession, you gain a Six coin action according to the rule book, even though it should have "locked in" to what the card was just like throne room.

I know that, but why does it matter? Band of Misfits tells you that you choose a card for it to impersonate when you "Play this", not when you put it into play.
"This is that card until it leaves play"
