Festival, Donate, Tomb. Buy and trash the entire coppers pile, have a deck with no green, and still win on vp tokens.

Why Festival? Surely Market or Squire would be better.

Market or Squire
Misread that at first.

Now I want there to a card called Market Squire. And one called Square.

oh sure; those just weren't in the game I did this in, festival was.
although squire, drawing a handful of those you end up with the one more buy but fewer money than festival.

This strat also works with Goons and a Village, rather than a +buy card and Tomb.

Mountain Village + Training is an interesting combo, if you have enough Mountain Villages.  You can easily play multiple Mountain Villages that way for +$1 each

Magpie + Watchtower let me gain the rest of the magpie pile.   I happened to have two magpies and a Watchtower in hand. Played a magpie, drew a copper and revealed an Estate.  Gained a magpie, used Watchtower to topdeck it.  Played the second magpie, drew the magpie I'd just gained and, of course, revealed the same Estate as before.  Gained another magpie, topdecked it, repeated, until I'd emptied the pile

Stockpile is a good Minion starter. Makes Minion affordable early and then gets itself out of the way.

Sanctuary is great on a Fountain board: exiling Copper gets it out of your deck without losing Fountain points, and it provides +Buy to pick up the extra Copper you need.

I just had a game where the Kingdom included Upgrade, Fortress and Royal Carriage.

To make matters even more amusing, Donate was available - so having bought a Silver, 2 Golds, Fortress and two Upgrades I could Donate - trash everything else (yes, I suppose I could have trashed the $ too, an error on my part!) and used the Double Upgrade-Fortress combo to pile the Upgrades and then pick up as many Royal Carriages as my opponent didn’t buy, queuing them all on the Tavern mat as they came up. The following turn, I had enough plays of Upgrade on Fortress to pile the Duchies, buy a Province for good measure and win 30-0 in 12 turns. Completely mad - I suspect the other player didn’t see what was going to happen until the turn when the piles started to empty.

Upgrade + Fortress: one worth knowing about!

Scepter + Cavalry is an interesting way of getting +actions when there are no villages. Play scepters on your nonterminals to get extra actions, and then buy cavalry so that you can actually use them.

A couple more I came across today:

rats + way of the horse: replace all your junk with horses
sculptor + feodum: Turns out feodum likes nonterminal silver gaining to hand; this one turned out to be a bit stronger than I would have guessed.

Treasure Trove and Commerce deliver three Gold in one turn and should permit a BM strategy. Bonus if you have Forager/Spice Merchant/Hideout to deal with the pesky Coppers.

On a similar note, the purchase of Destriers could be prepared by a Stampede, if possible.

A really strong combination that I've seen work twice recently is Sentry and Fortune. First, you need to use your fortune to have 5/2. Then you use your fortune to draw Sentry on turn 3. Then you use it again to draw the same sentry on turns 4 and 5. At that point, you've almost certainly won the game.

Fortune? isn't that not available until after the gladiators are gone?

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.

Fortune isn't available until the Gladiators are gone, but fortune is available at any point in any game. Fortune only gives coins and a buy, but fortune can make a winner. Sometimes you even need fortune to get Fortune.

Edit: Fortune no longer sounds like a word.

Wayfarer + Replace interaction is neat. Replace a Wayfarer into a province, and then the curse your opponent gets makes Wayfarer cost 0, so it should be easy to replace it buy another one.

Fisherman normally can only be bought once per turn for its low cost, but if you have topdecking effects (Tracker, Travelling Fair, Watchtower, Royal Seal), then each one can have the cheap price. I was in a game with Quarry, Travelling Fair, and Fisherman where I was fortunate enough to hit Quarry + 3 Coppers on T3, topdecking 3 Fisherman for T4.

Groom + Highway has a couple things going for it beyond just cost reduction + extra gains. The horses really help you move through the deck to find more highways and grooms, and then the cantrip effect makes it a lot easier to find/play all your grooms when you go for the megaturn. It's interesting to compare groom to cantrip +buy (e.g. market, seaway) in the context of highway. Groom is worse in that it's a terminal stop card when not greening (though the horse sort of offsets the lack of +card), but better in that you only need 4 of the highways to get provinces.
