School Courier - $5
Action
+1 Action
Trash a card from your hand costing more than $0. Choose one: gain a Card costing up to $2 more; or gain a card costing up to ^ more; or gain to your hand a Potion and a Copper.
Works nicely with Apothecary, because you can turn your opening Estates into Apothecaries, and you're less worried than normal about having lots of Coppers. Its other good within-Alchemy Estate-targets are Scrying Pool and University.

Aside from that, probably a little weak - you've only got three targets in your starting deck, and trashing a good card from hand to get a better one in your discard pile has to be thought about carefully.

Putting aside the fact that you should use Mining village trash in every game (namely in your last turn), I don't get the similarity at all. Yes, mining village has a blow up option, but they're obviously different. If mining village gave +10$ on trash, they would also both have a blow-up option.
Vineyard says hi.

Maybe this should trigger off of it having 2 or more types so it's less narrow. Minor nitpick, the color spit is upside down. The white should be above the green.
Hmm. I'm not sure that Intrigue needs cheap ways to KC a Torturer.

On the subject of Fisherman, I had a game yesterday where I held off on playing Cavalry that turn so I could Inherit Fisherman. That was quite cute.

Carpenter looks excellent; a solid mix of abilities and a good cost for it.

Another way to build an engine and encourage them in the base set.
That looks weak. If the kingdom doesn't have another draw card, I'm not usually going to be able to reliably play that late enough in the turn that it draws 3 or more cards; if it does, I'll probably buy that rather than Locksmith.

(It looks stronger in a Seaside-heavy set than a Base-heavy one, but even so, not particularly tempting.)

Game Reports / Re: Dear My Opponent: I am Sorry

Dear Opponent,

I am sorry that my end-of-last-turn Werewolf Locusted your Copper into a Curse, thus breaking your Fountain and causing a 16-point swing that decided the game. I didn't deserve to win that.

This is wonderfully silly and I approve. Probably not good except in a Tomb game, though.

How strong is the Ironworks-Dyke rush deck going to be? That sort of thing might be an important consideration in deciding where to price it.
Ironworks does not care about the difference between $3 and $4 ... and at a base price of $5 the card is obviously too weak.
No, but if you cost it at $4, then you can't gain Dykes with Ironworks once the Ironworks pile is empty, which makes a difference.

The specific problem with nonterminality for Vigil is that it allows for easy plays of Vigil - Village, which can just totally destroy an opponent's subsequent turn.

The online server is right; your understanding of the rules is wrong. 0 + 8D is a higher cost than 0.

Right. The "next turn" effect of Duration cards is created during their resolution, it doesn't need to be in play or anywhere accessible next turn

Before last year's errata, you could for example Procession a Hireling, thus end up with the Hireling card not in play in future turns and still draw 2 cards at the start of each of your turns for the 2 times it was played.
You can still do much the same by Inheriting Hireling, and Processioning an Estate.

I won, but against an opponent who opened Village/Bureaucrat to my Militia/Silver. I'm not sure that helps us very much.

I'm assuming that the remaining three cards do not include Chapel, Remodel, Moneylender, Laboratory or Witch, because you'd have mentioned them. Hmmm. My impulse would be that Merchant is probably your most space-efficient source of income.

Is it possible to have someday a cost reducer for events or itís just too strong?
It's probably terribroken: worthless if there are no Events, and potentially ridiculously strong if there are.

Rules Questions / Re: Coffers Question
« on: May 19, 2020, 01:32:25 pm »
I see now. I had misinterpreted the rule to mean you cannot accumulate any more coins to spend once you buy something. A better way to look at is, unless instructed, you may no longer play Treasures from your hand or turn in Coffers after you buy something during your Buy phase.
That's almost right (there are one or two edge cases involving Black Market).
