#24 Wild Hunt (Empires) Weighted Average: 66.6% / Unweighted Average: 63.6% / Median: 70.5% / Standard Deviation: 23.5%

Wild Hunt is the best Empires card in this list, but it was close as it was voted only 0.08pp better than Crown. It is 3 ranks lower in the unweighted ranking.

Haggler is also slightly better than last year, 2 ranks and nearly 2pp. But in the unweighted ranking it's still those 2 ranks worse.
#21 ▲2 Apprentice (Alchemy) Weighted Average: 70.0% ▲3.9pp / Unweighted Average: 68.3% / Median: 69.5% ▲1.2pp / Standard Deviation: 16.8%

Apprentice is just like Haggler 2 ranks higher, but with a way better average, nearly 4pp better, crossing the 70% mark. It's 2 ranks worse in the unweighted ranking as well.

The Best Cards - Part 9/10



#20 ▲5 Count (Dark Ages) Weighted Average: 70.1% ▲4.7pp / Unweighted Average: 70.7% / Median: 72.6% ▲7.2pp / Standard Deviation: 16.3%

After rising 11 ranks last year, Count is another 5 ranks better. It has a small lead over Apprentice of 0.12pp and was voted first once.
#19 ▲10 Royal Carriage (Adventures) Weighted Average: 70.6% ▲7.9pp / Unweighted Average: 71.0% / Median: 71.6% ▲7.0pp / Standard Deviation: 16.6%

Royal Carriage is a big winner, being 10 ranks and nearly 8pp better than last year.
#18 ▲2 Highway (Hinterlands) Weighted Average: 74.2% ▲6.3pp / Unweighted Average: 75.4% / Median: 77.9% ▲3.8pp / Standard Deviation: 15.2%

Highway continues to go up and is higher than ever before. It climbed only 2 ranks this year, but over 6pp is still a lot. It was also voted first once. It is 3 ranks higher in the unweighted ranking.
#17 ▲4 Bridge Troll (Adventures) Weighted Average: 75.4% ▲7.7pp / Unweighted Average: 74.0% / Median: 76.6% ▲4.1pp / Standard Deviation: 16.0%

#16 ▼3 Butcher (Guilds) Weighted Average: 73.2% ▲3.7pp / Unweighted Average: 74.4% / Median: 79.0% ▲6.7pp / Standard Deviation: 17.9%

Butcher lost 3 ranks, but still has won quite a bit in its average.
#15 ▼3 Counterfeit (Dark Ages) Weighted Average: 77.5% ▲1.7pp / Unweighted Average: 75.7% / Median: 82.1% ▲3.6pp / Standard Deviation: 20.3%

#14 ▲1 Ghost Ship (Seaside) Weighted Average: 77.9% ▲5.9pp / Unweighted Average: 74.3% / Median: 80.5% ▲1.2pp / Standard Deviation: 18.6%

Ghost Ship is only one rank better, but being nearly 6pp better is quite a lot. It is 3 ranks lower in the unweighted ranking though.
#13 ▲3 Lost City (Adventures) Weighted Average: 78.0% ▲7.2pp / Unweighted Average: 76.5% / Median: 81.1% ▲4.3pp / Standard Deviation: 17.5%

Lost City is 3 ranks and over 7pp better, not bad. It has a small lead over Ghost Ship of 0.06pp.
#12 ▲2 Margrave (Hinterlands) Weighted Average: 78.9% ▲6.0pp / Unweighted Average: 79.7% / Median: 83.9% ▲7.1pp / Standard Deviation: 13.7%

Margrave is 2 ranks better and now just as high as 4 years ago, but now with way more cards. It has also a 6pp better average which is quite a bit. It was voted first once and is even one more rank higher in the unweighted ranking.
#11 ▼3 Hunting Party (Cornucopia) Weighted Average: 79.8% ▼2.8pp / Unweighted Average: 79.8% / Median: 84.2% ▼2.4pp / Standard Deviation: 16.4%

For the first time ever Hunting Party isn't in the Top 10 anymore. It is 3 ranks and nearly 3pp worse than last year. It is one rank higher in the unweighted ranking.

Yeah! For some reason it's been the dominant card in most of my SuffleIT games.

It's a great card in 'I want to buy everything' kingdoms, which, with the new edition cards and the addition of empires just happens more frequently.

I was looking through last year's $5 card list.  As a community, I believe we really misranked a lot of the Adventures cards.

I expect Trade, Seaway, Treasure Trove, Relic, and Storyteller will all be significantly higher this year.
On the flip-side, I expect Swamp Hag and Haunted Woods to be significantly lower this year.

Outside of Adventures cards, I expect Outpost to be a big winner.  Either this year or next year - or both.

It might be a bit too low (I had it at 68 out of 83, without Empires). Mine is pretty okay. The thing is though, $5 cards are almost all very powerful, so cards that are 'pretty okay' like Mine are still relatively bottom tier...

Good to see there's finally some redemption for Counting House :)

They should both be above Pillage though. Pillage is pretty useless.

Are there spammable events that would allow you to ignore the downside of Contraband?

Contraband's pretty good in Border Village games. If they ban Border Village, you just buy the $5 card you wanted anyway; if they don't, you buy Border Village instead.

Yes!  Dominate, Triumph, Annex, Ball, Pilgrimage, Alms, Summon, Seaway, Banquet, Windfall, Wedding, Conquest, Raid, Delve, Advance, and Quest are all ways to work around Contraband.  And Events can't be blacklisted with Contrband, so even if they don't gain cards, Events give the Contraband player more options.  Contraband is at its best in the presence of Events, alternative VP, and lots of useful cards.  Adventures, Empires, and the second edition cards help out Contraband a lot.  Contraband still isn't an amazing card, but it doesn't belong in the bottom 10 anymore, IMO.

There are so many more times I genuinely want Mine than I genuinely want Royal Seal. It's not great, but it's a usable card on boards where you can't get rid of your Copper and so you might as well have better stop cards. It really shines with various alternate Treasures you want for short periods of time like Potion or Loan or whatever.

Counting House has a high ceiling where it is sometimes the dominant card on the board despite being normally terrible, so that should be higher than it is.

I can't decide whether Black Market is good or bad with Contraband.  The Black Market gives more options, but your opponent can pick the card you want from the Black Market.

I will now explain my joke to make it funnier: The bots only name Copper to Contraband.

Adventures cards I expect to go down:
Swamp Hag (#19 out of 83), Haunted Woods (#17)
I had Raid (#72) on this list too, but if it went down more than 1 rank, then we'd already have seen it in the bottom 10.

Adventures cards I expect to go up:
Bridge Troll (#21), Royal Carriage (#29), Treasure Trove (#59), Trade (#69), Relic (#55), Wine Merchant (#68), Seaway (#62)

Adventures cards I'm not sure about:
Artificer (#45), Storyteller (#47), Lost City (#16), Ball (#57), Giant (#51)
I think Storyteller should be higher, but from what I've seen, people haven't figured out how to play with it correctly.  So I'm interested to see where it goes.

Also, Counting House may also have gotten a bump from Royal Blacksmith.

Was the Travelling Fair combo found before or after the last list?  Because that one strong combo could be enough to keep it out of the bottom 3 (since, hey, at least there's some times when you really want it).
