Lurker / Vineyard - I mean, this isn’t rocket science. Lurker lets you gain Actions, Lurker is itself a cheap nonterminal pile, Vineyard is easily worth a bunch of points in such a game.

For extra seasoning, add trash for benefit like Transmogrify, which is also nonterminal, and can be followed up by playing Lurker to regain the trashed card. I would often use T-mog to transform Lurker into a $3 cantrip, then use the other Lurker to regain the Lurker I just threw out.

Throner - Patrol - Villa

Yes, more crazy villa magic. Throne (or crown or KC or whatever) your Patrol, drawing a metric ShIT ton of cards and clearing out the majority of your green, then buy villa, so you can play your engine that much more smoothly with the lack of green. Even better when you have Mill (like I just had in an IRL game, resulted in two consecutive double province turns fairly quickly)

I started playing Dominion with my girlfriend’s 2nd edition base set. I later received first edition as a gift so naturally I hate the removed cards because they’re stupid.

As a side note, interesting things happen when you play both 1st and 2nd editions together. Try it sometime. Or not. Who am I to judge?

But this is special because it's scout Patrol

Baron / Royal Carriage / Fountain provides stupid megaturn potential. (this position also had Triumph on the board for extra bonus points.)

- play baron
- call royal carriages until 1 estate left
- use associated buys to get up to 10 coppers
- buy triumph for many points
- game ends on piles

Bandit Camp/Marauder + Alms
Don't know if this has been mentioned yet. Spoils don't count as in play when you buy Alms because they've been returned to the pile. You can abuse this if you also have +buy. Buy your expensive luxury card with the Spoils, then cheat the local charity out of a $4 card as well.

Survivors/Wishing Well came in surprisingly handy a few times in a sloggy Vineyard came I just played. (Getting a lot of Misfits was key so I could use them as villages or as Wishing Wells as needed.)

Death Cart + City Quarter + Travelling Fair
Death Cart plus either of the other two is probably pretty good, but guaranteeing a hand of DC + Ruin + CQ is even better. Unfortunately my opponent chose to play Transmute-only so I couldn't be sure of how strong it was outside of a vacuum.

Beyond Awesome just used two Quarries to pile out the Villas and then have $13 to spend. (I resigned immediately; they were the only village on the board.)

this isn't that good, but is satisfying: if you get messenger and sir martin, your opponent gets nothing

Duchess + Scrying Pool
It's neat that Scrying Pool can basically negate the deck inspection thing that Duchess gives your opponent. Duchess is also just a good cheap payload that Scrying Pool can draw.

Borrow + Margrave
Starting with a 4-card hand isn't so bad if your opponent is Margraving you every turn.

Advance+Fortress+extra buys

Absolutely killer. Each extra buy becomes "gain a card costing up to $6". I managed to put a shitload of Groundskeepers in my deck this way.

Advance, Villa, Grand Market

It's not earth-shattering, but it was useful this evening...

Having Advanced some cheap junk action into Grand Market, you then have a fairly feeble turn on which you play Grand Market and find yourself with $4 to spend and no actions in hand.

Buy Villa.
Put it in your hand; don't play it.
Use the +Buy from Grand Market to Advance it into another Grand Market.

Result, a Grand Market purchased with $2 discount and no restriction on using Copper. (-8
