I just thought this game was hilarious when I finished with it; my opponent opened with Chapel, I countered with Embargo. I got the first Silver then Embargoed Silvers, then got several Bazaars and then Embargoed Bazaar.

My opponent got all 10 curses with Embargo being the only curser.

Ian Baber draws Nomad Camp, Nomad Camp, Curse, Silver, Copper

Ian Baber: turn 7
Ian Baber plays Nomad Camp
Ian Baber plays 1 Silver
Ian Baber buys Silver
Ian Baber gains Curse
Ian Baber gains Silver
Ian Baber draws Chapel, Estate, Copper
Ian Baber shuffles deck
Ian Baber draws Curse, Silver

Huh....  who buys an Embargoed Silver instead of a Bazaar in a clear engine board????

Hello.  Name's Bruce.  It's all right.  I understand.  Why trust a shark, right?

Is quite curious - Who is the mystical "Celestial Chameleon"?

Cayvie was also hitting him with Cutpurse.  He couldn't get to $5 because of that.

Your opponent really shoots himself in the foot with that second Nomad Camp on turn 4. At that point, he has 10 cards in his deck, 3 of which are terminal - he guarantees himself terminal collision on every shuffle. The embargo was very effective psychologically, if Baber has just sucked it up and gotten the Silver off the bat, he would have been in much better shape and the Embargoes would have hurt him less in the long run. Shutting the door on Bazaar was a good move once you picked up a few, but Baber really should have been able to hit $5 earlier by skipping the second NC.
