Is Pirate Ship relevant here?  No way to quickly get rid of Coppers, could get lucky and hit a precious HoP, and it would provide money in an otherwise low-economy deck.  I want to say no, but I'd be tempted to try it.

I don't think you are ever going to get more worth out of your Pirate Ship than you are giving your opponent by trashing his Coppers. I mean, if you get very lucky hitting Horns, sure. But your opponent isn't going to have a really high number of Horns until late in the game, at which point he will have so many other cards too, I just think it's unlikely.

He already got a great haul of points in that game.

Eh, I'm not convinced. I think some variation of big money might've been better

I've been mostly away from the Forums for the past year, so apologies if there's been some paradigm shift and the expert opinion on Scout has shifted.

Eh. Even counting house got a Killer Combo, but we're still waiting for the discovery of Scout's hidden purpose in Dominion.

I once tried a Scout-Great Hall-Ironworks-Crossroads thing, it failed. :-\

If only Scout just had +1 card by default (like say Apothecary, Spy), then it wouldn't be actually hurtful.

I'm really confused. HoP megaturn with a village,draw, trashing and a way to gain hops alone is so superior to big money it's not even funny. Now since the HoP player happens to use scout, you want to play money?

With Roadrunner, it's always the long con. His entire performance thus far on these forums is part of it.

I had a Double Tactician/ Conspirator game the other day with Scout the only nonterminal Action. Scout let me kick off my Conspirator  chains, so there's that. And it made it easier for me to deal with the Provinces in my deck. I think it was actually  better  for my deck than say, Squire or Pawn  would  have been .

I just played a game where I bought a Scout to power up my Fairgrounds!

The coolest reason I ever bought a Scout is to make a Golem I was certain to see on the next turn non-terminal (the only other non-terminal was Alchemist, but I didn't have a Potion that turn). Sure, it might as well have been a Ruined Village, but Ruins were not on the board, so yeah.

This made me remind of a game where my opponent got a bunch of scouts (actually BUYING a couple of them) and making fantastic use of them for the win. I caught up to what he was doing and got scouts of my own, making it so we actually completely drained the scout pile, but unfortunately it was to late for me...

But really, scout was only important for the cost, not it's effect.  Basically any 4 cost card would do since it was only really used as fuel for Upgrade into key 5 cost cards.

That's still a step up from being worse than a Silver purchase.
