Quick thought to interject: How often is a pure BM strategy better than something you can't really call an engine because it's inconsistent but has a lot of good stuff in it? Imagine like a board with Ironmonger, Ironworks, and Smithy but no Village, trashing, or Buy.

Probably a pure engine board as long as there is any payload. If not, I'd go for pure BM with a bunch of Ironmongers and maybe one Smithy.

I thought you thought it was a slip because I said 'Jake's partners' instead of 'Roadrunner7671.'

For distinction of deck types, I feel like an interesting question is this:

Is pure Ranger-Lost Arts a BM deck or an engine?

Since the number of points is within a constant factor of the number of city quarters, in the long run we can get (4 - ε) ↑↑ n points in n turns for any ε > 0.

I think it depends on whether or not you raise your economy to a fixed value (e.g. 16) and overdraw, or if you just stuff the deck with Rangers and money and don't consistently draw deck.

Now whether or not it is a good engine is another story.
