Does all of your cards coming back to your deck no matter where they are (like say Tavern mat) count?  They're not in your deck, but they do seem to be your cards still.

New additions to the list!

Lurker/Fortress allows you to get a Fortress directly from the supply without ever gaining it.

And as pointed out by Jeebus in another thread, Possession actually returns any trashed cards to your deck, while they were very temporarily removed from your deck. Like Fortress though, you must have already gained/gotten the card previously in order for this to work.

So what then happens to the Fortress?  If I'm understanding correctly... it isn't gained, so it doesn't go into the possessor's deck.  And it isn't trashed from the possessed's deck, so it shouldn't "return" to their deck.  Does it go back to the supply?  Does it stay in the possessed person's deck, simply because it has nowhere else to go?  Does it lose track in any way?

Well a trashed Fortress goes directly into the hand of the person who trashed it (which is always the person who had it to begin with). The only way that Possession interacts with this is that the possessing player can choose the order of Possession's when-trash and Fortress's when-trash, and whichever he chooses first, the other loses track and does nothing.

If he chooses Possession's when-trash, then Fortress is no different than any other card that's trashed on a Possession turn. It temporarily stops being yours when you are forced to trash it, but then when you set it aside, it becomes yours again, by the rule from Inheritance that says that a card that's set aside by you becomes yours.

You get 10 cards in your deck at the start of the game.
Doesn't the game officially begin AFTER the setup?  If so, then those cards were always there, and not really "gotten".  If so, then buying your copy of Dominion would be another way ;)  Or winning promos at a con

Damn socialists.  In my day, you had to earn your starting cards!

Make a Dominion mod where everyone starts with 0 cards.  Your opening buy choices are Copper or Curse.

Edit: Or whatever with Adventures possibilities.

I'll use my Baker token to buy a Poor House, then buy a Tournament, then a Baker, then two more Bakers, then a Province, and get Followers.

Is this how people become famous on Twitter?

Half the card-shaped things that use the exiling mechanic can exile a card from the supply: Camel Train, Transport, Invest, Coven, Enclave, Way of the Camel, Way of the Worm.
