It's not uncommon to open Silver/Moneylender and end up drawing Moneylender, Silver, Estate x3

Actually, there's only a 1/792 chance of drawing Moneylender, Silver, Estate x3 on turn 3 or 4 after opening with Silver/Moneylender.

(If I've done my math correctly: 12 choose 7 / 7 choose 7)

FFS.



Wait, what? Is this some time into the game, after you've played a Highway? How unlucky this is depends heavily on how many Coppers you've already trashed. It's not uncommon to open Silver/Moneylender and end up drawing Moneylender, Silver, Estate x3, and that's much worse than having it happen later.

Turn 3, after a Baker token, I'm guessing.

No, look at the costs of all the cards; they're reduced by 1.

I think you over complicated it, it's also just 12 choose 5, or 12 choose 7. But uncommon was clearly the wrong word. I guess I meant not unheard of.

It was turn 11, and the costs are lowered because I took the screenshot on my opponent's turn and he had a Bridge. Yes, I had trashed like 3 Coppers already, but I also had a bunch of Scrying Pools and City Quarters and other Actions so my expectations to cycle through at least some of my deck, connect the Potion with at least $2 and connect the Moneylender with a Copper should have been pretty good (I mean, that's how it worked out for my opponent). Instead, I skipped the trashing that shuffle, I skipped the Scrying Pool gain that shuffle, and I skipped just one entire turn in general, putting me perhaps two-ish turns behind my opponent in terms of tempo and permanently behind in terms of the Scrying Pool split.

I guess I meant not unheard of.

Yeah and I'm still salty about that too.

Cross post from way back in the Homage to the Best Card thread:

In any case, I just realized that Young Witch could probably be a reasonable proxy for Disaster Girl.

Winning a game thanks to an early Transmute buy.

Centuries later, archaeologists discover the remains of your ancient civilization.

Evidence of thriving towns, Pottery, roads, and a centralized government amaze the startled scientists.

Finally, they come upon a stone tablet, which contains but one mysterious phrase!

'ISOTROPIC WILL RETURN!'
