If you gain a card with a Courier in hand, you can play that same card immediately afterwards, assuming you have at least one card in your draw pile. This is especially good with non-terminal gainers like Carpenter

Mountebank becomes extra dangerous with Wall in play. Cursing and Coppering an opponent for -3 VP is insane and it still gives -1VP from the copper even after curses run out.

Villa + Fellowship of Scribes is handy, provided you have a good source of Favors, netting +1 Card +2 Actions +$1 +1 Buy

While you're not wrong at all that is the point of Fellowship of Scribes. Any none-terminal that doesn't draw is good with it.

I haven't tried this yet, but is student + scheme any good?

Play student, trash copper, topdeck student, play scheme, draw student, trash copper, topdeck student, end turn, topdeck scheme. Repeat for a few turns.

Guess it's hard to buy anything though.

Just discovered today that when you play a Hireling as your first action in a turn whilst you have Citadel, that Hireling gives you +2 cards at the start of each turn for the rest of the game instead of the usual +1.

Market Towns makes Miser very strong if you've got a good source of Favors such as Underling, and especially if you've got +buy in the kingdom. But even without +buy, a couple of Misers will let you stash away your Coppers quickly, making each Miser almost a guaranteed Province

Student + Fellowship of Scribes lets you easily trash multiple Coppers (or other Treasures) in a single turn. Trash a Treasure, get a Favor and topdeck Student. Unless you'd drawn multiple cards earlier in your turn, you now have less than 5 cards in your hand, so you can use the Favor you just got to draw your Student back!

Guildmaster/City-State. I don't normally play as many Actions in my Buy phase as I did just now.

I had a game with Peasant and Merchant Camp. Once I got the Teacher, I put the +Card token on Merchant Camp, turning them into the equivalent of $3-cost Treasuries that topdeck even when buying a Victory card! (And gave me far more Actions then I needed) My opponent missed that combo, so I was able to buy up nearly the whole pile (it also helped that Gallery was also in the game, making it easier to buy multiple $3's)

Just had a merchant camp and tactician board.  Not only is merchant camp disappearing money, but it also helped me play bard and other terminal money without running out of actions, easily enabling double tactician.

Had a game with League of Shopkeepers where the only Liaison was Emissary. I didn't think that would work out, so I mostly ignored the Emissary. But my opponent invested heavily in them and managed to pull it off, with Research for light trashing and Capital City for extra actions. They managed to hit 10 Favors, so that Emissary became a net +1 Action +3 Cards +$1 +1 Buy, becoming a really strong card. By the time they got that, I already had 5 Provinces, but once they had that combo, they were able to buy enough Provinces and Duchies to win the game

In a recent game I discovered that Voyage has a strong synergy with Exploration. Basically you are highly rewarded for doing a lot of nothing. :)

Haha, true. Although Baths doesn't work if you are gaining cards. (In many Voyage turns you gain cards but do not buy any.)

Contract also has good synergy with Voyage because of the way it lets you weasel around the restriction on playing cards from your hand: when you set aside a card from your hand, you're not playing it on that turn, and when you play a set aside card, it's not from your hand on that turn.

Ghost hitting Marquis = Net +15 cards discard 10, essentially getting to pick the best 10 cards out of 20 to start your next turn

You can use Bauble (or any of the other topdecking effects) to topdeck the Gold from Treasure Trove but not the Copper.

Posting here because it was an interaction I didn't think about until after I bought the cards.

Watchtower is the best one for that, because you can topdeck the Gold and trash the Copper

This is an obvious synergy, but I played a game with it and it was as powerful as expected:
Lich+Governor+mountain village

It's like the Governor deck except you don't have to use any Governors for gold gaining or draw. You can use them all for remodeling on a megaturn. My last turn, I drew enough (with barge and MV) to have 4 Governors, a Lich, and 4 MVs in hand. I trashed Lich 4 times in a row for the last four provinces, then draw it a fifth time, played it, and drew the rest of my cards to buy whatever duchies were needed to finish FTW.

Marquis + Way of the Chameleon
Do I need to explain this? Marquis becomes a ridiculous, and I mean, RIDICULOUS source of money.

Possession + Odysseys

I don't get this one... are you just saying because it lets you gain Possessions easily?

It lets you gain Possessions easier than anything we have seen before; the significance of that cannot be overstated enough. On top of that, Voyage is also excellent for getting multiple Possession plays.

In the game on which I got this interaction, I opened with Old Map, got a Voyage and a Sunken Treasure, and always cycled until Distant Shore was on top. My opponent underestimated the importance of that pile (or should I say: the urgency of getting stuff thereof) and got none of these. By the time I played my first Possession (on a Voyage turn), I had two of these, and my opponent was like: "let's get the hell out of here."

I haven't had this yet in a game, but it occurs to me that Fellowship of Scribes would let your actually productively Throne/KC a Tactician. Just spend a favor between each play of Tactician to have a card in hand to discard on the next play!
