I got bored with my old avatar and loved the art of Magpie; my insincere apologies to those who don't like to see their world shaken up!

Does that mean this avatar is available?

And then the candle avatar is all mine. Everything is going according to plan.

Nope! I called it in the avatar thread.

Finally SheCantSayNo will no longer usurp my rightful avatar!

Well, he answered half of my question.

I also just realized that the on-gain penalty is pretty brilliant: you can use a discard attack to counter the effect but if you're able to gain a Lost City in your action phase with a discard attack in hand and at least one action to spare, your deck is probably already doing what Lost City does, and the benefit of gaining it will be more marginal.

Thank goodness. I kept being confused at how SheCantSayNo's personality had changed completely.

For my next trick I'm going to SCSN's password and start posting from that account.

I think people are overvaluing Magpie. It looks like the deck where it's really going to shine is BM without terminal draw. It's just not going to be a high impact card in any other deck, IMHO. Something nice to have for sure, but not the card that is going to win the game for you. You might need to get one anyway just to avoid the other playing snatching all 10 for free.

The good thing about this opinion is that, if I am wrong, nobody will remember. If I am right, I get massive bragging rights because the high-ranked players think otherwise!  ;D

Oh, and:

A non-supply card that doesn't cost 0. Inconceivable!

Has already existed since Dark Ages.

A "(This is not in the Supply.)" card that doesn't cost 0. Inconceivable!

I feel that Magpie is kind of a Vagrant+Rats hybrid.  Though personally I'd rather use it as a TfB card than a treasure hunting card.  Free magpies + Forge/Salvager/Apprentice.

Magpie is fantastic when you want a lot of copies of one card for some reason.

Magpie/Spy can sort of become the BM version of Scrying Pool.

Would have to be Magpie/Scout; Spy doesn't look ahead far enough.

Does the Scheme trick work here?  For example, if I choose Hero with Scheme, then choose to resolve Scheme's effect first, putting Hero on top of my deck, Hero has now lost track of itself and can't return to the Hero pile.  Do I still get a Champion?

I'm pretty sure echanging can't be partially executed.

You don't; exchanging requires both cards to be available to exchange. Rulebook Saturday!

That's interesting. Assuming "exchange" has a specific definition in the rule book will determine if this is possible. Right now we don't know exactly what exchange means in Dominion. It may or may not be an "if you do" situation.

Edit: Professor X beat me to it.
