#2 =0 Tournament (Cornucopia) Weighted Average: 92.8% ▲2.5pp / Unweighted Average: 92.4% / Median: 95.8% ▼0.6pp / Standard Deviation: 12.5%

Tournament is still on rank #2, but improved in its average. It was voted first 10 times.
#1 =0 Remake (Cornucopia) Weighted Average: 94.3% ▲1.8pp / Unweighted Average: 92.8% / Median: 98.5% ▲2.1pp / Standard Deviation: 11.0%

Remake stays #1, improving its average as well with amazing 21 votes on #1.

I respectfully disagree.  Feodum can be a game-winning card if it appears with a good silver-gainer or with trash-for benefit.

Are any of these cards in the bottom rank ever game-winners?  Counting House if combined with Travelling Fair, sure, but that's a very specific circumstance.  I guess Pirate Ship in 3-4 player, but who plays 3-4 player?

Coppersmith can be pretty game-changing if it is a terminal yielding 7, although nowhere near the state of a serious brutal combo. Apart from Coppersmith though, I can't see any of these cards being a game-changer.

There is Counting House, but that is a 5. You at least expect a 5 to have some serious qualities. Although there is Harvest..

Lots of people play 3-4 player, they just don't come here to talk about it.

It's a shame that Rocks comes up in so few games, requiring multiple people to go for Catapults, or one person to go all in.  For that reason, I don't put much stock in the current ranking of Rocks, and am willing to substitute my personal opinion.  ;D

Rocks is underrated by at least 10 ranks.  Considering that you only get it when there are five catapults floating around, Rocks is basically a curser/militia.  Definitely not the strongest junker, but still much more consistent than say, Embargo, so it's hard to justify it being so low.

Rocks is not a curser militia, it's a oneshot curser militia if you want to look at it that way. This is even before considering the need to collide, etc. Big difference.

Most of Rocks' power is gaining a Silver to hand, not just on-trash, but on-gain too. It's a great combo with most Workshop variants.

Well two-shot if you count being able to trash the Silver received from trashing Rocks with Catapult at a later time, but you won't get +$2 from trashing Silver like you do from trashing Rocks and getting a Silver in hand to replace it.

Rocks is merrhh.  Not really sure where to place it yet, but it's certainly not top 10 material.
PIRATE SHIP IS BETTAR THAN YARRRR ARRLLL ARRRR MAKING IT AARRRRTT TER BEEEEEEEEE
Fuck Spy
All Feodum needs is a way to gain Silver modestly quickly and BAM it's better than Province.  Let us count the ways:
-MASTERPIECE
-Trader
-Jack
-Amulet
-Raid
-Talisman
-Bureaucrat? probably not, too slow
-Treasure Hunter
-Trusty Steed (if you can get it), probably still too slow
-Delve
-Salt the Earth (with Feodum), surprisingly
-Squire maybe?

It depends on the rest of the kingdom, of course, but on boards with a fairly weak engine Squire/Feodum and Bureaucrat/Feodum are certainly a thing.

On an unrelated note: no redemption for Coppersmith, unfortunately. :(

I don't know how you guys are all playing Catapult games where you run out of real junk to trash and can move on to Rocks and Silver. Do you guys just skip past trashing most of the Coppers and Estates?

Rocks is kinda good though because of how you can use it to throw Silver into your current hand with gainers or trashers, that's handy. I like it more than Catapult. It's still probably bottom 10 though.

Feodum kind of sucks

There are other thrashers. Also trashing silver is probably better than trashing copper depending how many coins you need that turn.

Rocks is bad. It never comes up, and for it to come up, you would need to buy more Catapults than you need, and even if it does come up, I mean, come on.

I'm surprised that Ritual wasn't in the bottom ten. I almost never find a use for it.

A oneshot?  You're thinking of silver.  Rocks plus two silver is a three-shot, with multiple chances to collide.  And the first shot could be in the very same shuffle you buy Rocks.

Yeah, buying a card just to be oneshot Catapult food sucks, which is why Catapult isn't a very effective curser on its own.  You need a silver-gainer like Rocks.
