I'm not sure if it's been said before, but I just played a game with Trader/Embargo that had interesting synergy.  My opponent Embargo'd Cultists, and I eventually discovered that buying a Cultist with Trader in hand was essentially Cultist + free Silver.  He didn't even bother buying any Traders either (basically his Embargo backfired and hurt him).  Not sure if it's good just thought it was cool.
Your opponent was a fool for not picking up a Trader, I think. While generally filling your deck with Silver isn't the greatest of things, having a Silver rather than a Curse (from Embargo) or a Ruins (from your Cultists) is going to be a decent compromise. And I suspect you'd get enough Silvers from that to play a Cultist rush, emptying Duchies, Ruins and a third pile of your choice fairly quickly.
Yeah he opened Ironmonger instead.  Still was a cool interaction.  He didn't even buy a Cultist either (just Mountebanks, Ironmongers, and a Possession a little too late).

Mine + Ill-Gotten Gains. Mine silvers and IGGs into more IGGs.

I haven't run this in a simulator, but in a IGG rush I'm pretty sure it's worth buying after your first IGG, if you have at least one silver in your deck. Hitting mine in the same hand as a silver or IGG is likely to result in 2 IGG gains that turn.

Three cards, so not really a combo, but

Open Armory/Loan
If you're lucky enough for them to collide at any point (the earlier the better), play Armory to gain a Tunnel.
Play Loan

Wheee!

And then your Loan can hit the Gold you gained, because Loan never hits Copper!

Obviously Bureaucrat/X is better than not-Bureaucrat/X. It's the most powerful card in Dominion.

One I don't see mentioned that I've used to good effect is Mining Village/Rogue.  Usually you save those $2 from trashing Mining Village to the endgame.  With Rogue in hand, you can trash it, then get it back with Rogue.  (I think it also works with Graverobber, but then you don't get the additional $2 from Rogue.)

Of course, Watchtower/Cache is even better.

One that I like is Graverobber/Border Village.

1. Gain Graverobber with BV
2. Trash BV (3$ card in play) for Province
3. Gaining from BV also provides fuel for Graverobber to turn into Provinces
4. Regain BV from trash and gain another cheaper card along with it

Mining Village - Rogue will give you a net of 0 actions, -1 cards, and $4.  So its not all that much different than just having 2 Silvers.  Also, a Harvest or Tribute can give you almost the same effect.

Bonus: Mining Village gained through Rogue won't miss reshuffle if you shuffle during that turn; your two Silvers would.

What?  Mining Village draws a card.  Starting from a regular 5 card hand, you end with 4 other cards in hand with which to do something, though you also have the option to not trash Mining Village and use Rogue as an attack (or to gain something else from the trash).  Two Silvers are pure stop cards, which only leaves you 3 other cards in hand, no draw.

Harvest leaves you with 0 actions remaining and is far less reliable.  Tribute is even less reliable, and terminal if you get +$4 from it.

What if MV itself causes the reshuffle? ;)

So really it's

+1 Action, +$4, place in discard pile after playing.

Though if you play it again in the same turn you need another Rogue to make it that.

I'm talking about the next shuffle, obviously.  If there is a shuffle after playing Mining Village and before your cleanup phase, The Mining Village that was trashed and gained from Rogue will be included, but anything in play will not.

Edit: Oh, but, right.  A Silver would not have caused the shuffle that Mining Village did.  Well, edge case to an edge case I guess.

Scrying Pool - Swindler
Scrying Pool - Saboteur
Scrying Pool - Jester

etc.
(Ok, what doesn't go well with Scrying Pool?)

EDIT: I mention Scrying Pool here instead of, say, Spy or Oracle because SP is just so reliable for attacks like this.

Plus Oracle is *another* terminal so it wouldn't work in an interaction in isolation.
