Just had a great Lord Rattington moment. Chapel/Mountebank board. He gets super lucky and opens 5/2. Turn 1, he plays his 5 Coppers and.... he buys a Chapel.

Did he have any cards other than Chapel at the end of the game?

Usually, he has another Chapel and a Silver and does ... nothing each turn.

The only game I played against Lord Rattington, he trashed down to just one Steward. Then he played that Steward every turn and probably chose the trashing option and bought nothing.

Saw this also, not Mountebank, but other decent 5 cost cards and he opened Chapel on the 5 hand.

Lord Rattington always discards when you play a Vault. Always. If you play your 5th Vault in a turn, he'll discard his last card and not draw any replacement. If you discard your 6th Vault in a turn, he'll slow play you while he tries to figure out how to discard when he has no cards in his hand, and you are forced to resign.

I'm not apologizing for the slow play when you're the one playing that ridiculous vault engine against me.

And Apothecary.  He'll also always discard to Torturer, so if you want to play around with a strategy, just add in Torturer and the AI will never do anything.

Code: [Select]
L plays a Remake.
L trashes a Fortune Teller.
L gains a Remake.
L trashes a Province.
L shuffles their deck.
L draws 5 cards.

I haven't taken the time to think of an edge case where this might be a reasonable thing to do, but this, uh, wasn't one.

Colony board, spiked an early 8 with a couple Remakes already, hope to get a Platinum?

Fairgrounds, too (didn't have a Platinum in deck, game was ending, needed to increase to the next step),  and maybe one of those Events can be another example.  Though we know Platinum isn't here as one wasn't gained in the log.

 ;D

I've had it happen twice, both times it was because of King's Court. But it DOES mean that you should be able to completely pin him by just playing exactly 5 Vaults each turn.
