T1 Gold because you had a 2/5 split? Now you have a (slim) chance at T2 $7? Nice.

Pistage turns a normal 5/2 opening into a 3/2+ , potentially 3/6 and more

Also, unlike Borrow, you can buy as many Trackings as you like.

One "problem" with "Pistage" is that you have to buy it before whatever else you want to buy, which might cause that whatever to miss the reshuffle.

I guess it's a good thing that cost reducers don't work on events then.

One nice thing about Quest is that, unlike Trade, you don't have to also be playing cards from your hand to pay for it.

Inheritance makes this sound like a lot of fun. Now you can open Gold/Tournament/Tournament/Tournament and 'get rid' of 3 Estates in the process.

...spin-offs are still better for all of the previously cited reasons.
But not strictly better, because the spinoff can have a different cost than the expansion.

Pistage doesn't look that strong (at least early game) imo.  Quest, on the other hand, is strong but only early game.

So you can Quest just to discard, even if you don't have six cards?

If you don't have an Attack or Curse or 6 cards in hand, can you still buy a Quest to just discard as many cards as you can?

Hmm.. what if you do have an Attack or Curses in hand?  Can you discard your entire hand and "trigger" any of the clauses?

Sure. But you wouldn't gain a gold. Could be a way to activate Tunnel or defense against Haunted Woods.

Quest could really turn some slogs into big money games. Imagine a board that would end up just a curse slog with Witch. Now any hand with a Witch or two Curses equals a Gold. Your deck will be flooded, and the game will probably end on Provinces super quick

If you have +Buy of your own, you can buy something else first.




Quest reminds me a lot of Vault (which Kirian already mentioned) as long as you have any +2 Cards draw.  The big difference is that Quest will only ever get you to Gold while Vault gets you to Province or better pretty quickly.  That should make Quest+BM significantly weaker.

On a 5/2, it can be pretty awesome. It makes those 3 estates and 2 coppers miss the shuffle, plus it sifts through your deck to help you get to your 5 guaranteed turn 3.

Hmm.. what if you do have an Attack or Curses in hand?  Can you discard your entire hand and "trigger" any of the clauses?

Hmm, good question! Let's make it concrete:

Suppose I have nothing but an Ambassador and a Tunnel in hand when I buy Quest. Is it possible for me to gain two Golds?
1. I opt to discard "any six cards".
2. I "do as much as I can", discarding two cards, gaining a Gold for my Tunnel.
3. The Event says "if you do…". If you do what? "Discard an Attack, two Curses, or any six cards". Well, I did that! As it turns out, I discarded an Attack! So I gain Gold from the Event.

…My guess is no, this doesn't work; but I've been wrong before.

I love how we're referring to it as Pistage. I hope that sticks.

Thus is my guess, too.  I first select one of A, B, C, attempt to follow. and then check if I successfully did what I selected.

My guesses for the English name of Pistage are either Hunt or Pursuit.

"Dans ce cas " really does translate to "in this case" though. Maybe that's just how those kinds of effects are written in French.

Dans ce cas is the translation of if you do in dominion language... I confirm!
