I had an interesting game with TomConerly yesterday. I saw three strategies here: Urchin, Monument/Junk Dealer, and Fishing Village/Embassy. Giving away Silver in a Tournament game didn't seem to be optimal, so I went with Monument, while my opponent went with Urchin. I'm sure I made a few mistakes; I probably should have picked up a second Monument instead of an extra Tournament, and maybe I didn't need Throne Room, given that the only Prize I got was Princess. Probably my opponent should have picked up Princess over Bag of Gold/Duchy. Otherwise, it was reasonably well played.

I'm mainly just posting because I don't think I've ever won when my opponent got Followers, Trusty Steed, and a third Prize before I got one, and there wasn't another junk attack in the deck.

I think he should have picked up Princess over Followers/Trusty Steed. Princess is awesome on this board.

Agreed. Followers is mitigated by heavy trashing and Embassy for draw, and Trusty Steed is unneeded here (although it's still nice). Princess provides the only +buy, and there are a lot of good cheap actions for her to pick up (namely Throne Room and Monument). Bag of Gold is terrible; you just don't want treasure in this deck. Just spam Monuments for economy and VP.
