Fishing Village on duration, a hand of Steward, Steward, Copper, Copper, Copper.

I was intending to trash the three Coppers on my next turn, but an opponent played Council Room causing me to draw something I didn't want to trash.

I've always been aware of opponent's Council Room hurting as a hypothetical possibility, but that's the first time it's actually happened to me. )-8

It looks like your opponent could do with some kind of strategy. Other than "buy all the things", obviously.

Drawing cards, gaining +actions, and using them to play cost reduction and +buys (also known as an "engine") is a legit strategy. Perhaps it isn't an optimal way of playing that deck considering the apparent high ratio of Markets/Menageries in their deck and the questionable number of Coppers given that Count is also in the kingdom, but that's far from "buy all the things".

It feels incredibly late to be buying Inheritance, for one. And if they're trying for a Bridge megaturn it seems they haven't thinned enough and have bought too much distracting cruft. Conversely, if they're not trying for a Bridge megaturn, do they really need even one Bridge in a kingdom with Market, and shouldn't they have started greening by now?

Plus, that doesn't look like the kind of deck Menagerie will work in.

Any number of Bridges is better than no Bridges in an engine regardless of Market's presence in the kingdom, Menagerie works in any engine, and all of the cards that are visible in that log are either starting cards or cards that positively contribute towards the engine strategy.

If nothing else, having an abundance of Markets, coupled with Bridge, Talisman, and seemingly having already bought a lot of cards, creates the possibility of three-piling the moment you get the lead ("With 3 Bridges, many Markets, and a Talisman in play, I buy 2 Provinces, then buy several cheap cards, gaining copies with Talisman, and ending the game due to three piles being empty.").  True, a fast strategy might be able to gain too much of a lead for this, but without knowing what Wolphmaniac was doing, we can't say whether that was a danger here.

I just won a game by buying Donate and trashing all my sources of coin, leaving myself in inescapable debt and unable to buy anything for the rest of the game.


(Trashed down to four Provinces and one Transmogrify in hand, and one Transmogrify on the tavern mat, and milled Provinces till the pile was empty.)

Sage / Farming Village / Cutpurse / Rogue / Capital / Mission

How it played out: play various attacks to make both the hand and the deck miserable, then use capital to buy one of the above (later: a province) plus a mission, then play even more attacks and pay off the debt.
It was brutal.

Alternative solution: Possession. Or Wall and your opponent's not thinking clearly.

My friend bought Sewers. One turn she played Steward and trashed four Curses from her hand.

That beats the three curses that I managed to purge yesterday, during an opponent's turn involving three Old Witches. The remainder of my hand was still crap.

What are you talking about, Curses are awesome:

f takes The Earth's Gift.
f receives The Earth's Gift.
f discards a Copper.
f gains a Curse.
f discards The Earth's Gift.

(later to finish a Curse 3-pile off with a Triumph)

I end my turn. I draw: Cellar, Estate, Conspirator, Conspirator, Conspirator.

Now I have to decide how many Conspirators to discard to Cellar next turn...

Midway through a turn, I play Prince, setting aside a Doctor. Weirdly, the Doctor is immediately put into play. I dutifully report the bug to ShuffleIt, only to find out that ShuffleIt was correct:

By "Midway through your turn", it was still "at the start of your turn", right? Similar thing would happen if you e.g. Summon'ed a Guide, then call the Guide right after you play it.

So it's a Princed card causing another Prince to be played. That's certainly semi-interesting.

The log doesn't show it, but today in a game with Fountain my opponent played Tormentor, and the Hex I got was Greed which delivered me my 10th copper.  So, I got +10 points for getting a Hex.

On a board with no trashing except for Mint, Sewers is available. Thanks to Tactician, definitely worth it:

e buys a Mint.
e trashes 7 Coppers.
e trashes 3 Estates. (Sewers)
