The proper word is "schmout".

It's like you're being dismissive and you say "Dominion, schmominion".  That's a thing people do sometimes.

Huh?

At first I thought it was going to be a reference to the Hokey Pokey.

I will always remember it (along with the chicken dance) as the most annoying parts of rollerskating when I was middle school age.

Exodia is a set of cards in Yugioh with an instant-win condition if you can get them all together, just like the RBCI King Leon posted. I believe it was a critical point in some of the duels in the anime, but I've also heard that in real-life play it's usually a pretty rubbish combo because it's very fragile.

Thatís right. Especially, because Pot of Greed (Yu-Gi-Ohís Laboratory equivalent) is banned in competitive play. The original cards are weak monsters without effects. I tried to give them some synergy, but then I realized, that Dominion has strong trashers like Donate, Junk Dealer and Chapel and drawers like Hunting Party, which is the reason, that an Exodia-like set of cards would be too strong in Dominion.

I currently imagine mail-mi wearing a dark trenchcoat and a bowler hat, hunched over a bit, toothpick in his mouth, holding a gun in his pocket.  One bead of sweat trickling down his nose.

...I actually like it. But treasures are boring.

(Yes, I know which thread we're in here, but...)

It feels like Credit Union could cost $4, or even $3. Bank is $7, and will almost always give you at least $1 more than Credit Union would, especially as Banks stack. I think it's established that a treasure which gives $1 less when played costs $3 less. (-8

idk, it's already a Silver as long as you have literally any other Treasure in your hand.  With a Copper and a Silver, it becomes a Gold.  With additional alt treasure, it can become a $4 or $5.  Of course this is not an easy thing to pull off.  I might be open to $4, but $3 is absurd, and I still lean toward $5, though of course I haven't tested it.

Fair point.

You won't always, of course, but yeah, $4 rather than $3.
