Re: Strictly better effect than....

So no, I'm not redefining the term to support my conclusion.  My conclusion about what this thread is about is based on the actual discussion that happened in this thread.  Have you read it?

I'm not accusing you of it, I'm accusing the entire thread.

Well the thread has the answer at the start -- there is nothing that is strictly better than anything else in Dominion.  But you can find cards that have strictly better effects, and it's an interesting question in itself what kind of stuff needs to be ignored, which is what a lot of the discussion was about.  Or it was interesting, at least.  Now it's just repetitive.

If your complaint is about the thread title, there's not much I can do about that.

Courtier means that cards with different number of types can't be strictly better than each other, I think (+1 buy is the only option that can never backfire, no matter how weird the edge case).

Well, the edge case for +1 Action being bad is extremely weird, requiring Diadem+Villa+Storyteller to convert it into a possibly unwanted +1 Card.

You don't need Villa (you can play the Diadem with Storyteller itself), but otherwise you are right.
