Patron + Envoy

The broad firing range of Envoy will supply you with Coffers, and Envoys have a greater chance to start a turn successfully with Villagers. You need an additional source of Actions though to be able to pocket Villagers.

Beggar + Guildhall. Especially powerful with 5/2 opening. The fact that Beggar gives 6 even allows to buy provinces, while under handsize-reducing attacks. Bought provinces turn 4,5 and 7 and 8 (though there was no collision).

Recruiter + Treasurer

Have a gold in hand. Play recruiter, trashing gold. Play treasurer, gaining gold back to hand. Nets you +4 villagers, +$3.

Also really good replacing gold with spices.

Transmute + Triumph
Get a bunch of Triumph points by turning Coppers into more Transmutes, then Transmute the Triumph Estate into a Gold and get more points for that.

Play a Pirate Ship, trash an opponent's Pirate Ship. Feels kind of like Knights, where the played Knight doesn't get trashed.

Jack / Cathedral
Nothing too special here but it's very fast. I got 6 provinces in 12 turns.

Throne Room etc. + Smithy etc. + Citadel

Being able to start your turn off with Throne-Smithy-Throne rather than needing Throne-Throne-Smithy in your opening hand is very nice. It removes the need for strong trashing to make a Throne-Smithy engine work.

City Gate plays so nicely with Chariot Race.

Granted you only get to topdeck your most expensive card once, but thematically it's like starting the race slightly ahead.

Even so, it's as good to have three Poor Houses in hand as three Gold, and a whole bunch cheaper!

You're still coming out ahead.  If you couldn't play your Treasures first, Poor House either gets nullified, or would actually cause you to lose coins (assuming you weren't already at 0 coins).

Silos mitigates the on-buy effect of Mandarin somewhat.

These are old cards but someone may have noticed this before, but if you have enough copies of Merchant Guild in play, Villa becomes free and allows you to use the coins you attained this turn from Merchant Guild.

Play a Pirate Ship, trash an opponent's Pirate Ship. Feels kind of like Knights, where the played Knight doesn't get trashed.

This is actually far more deadly. Capitalism lets you play mass Pships, kill anything else that gives actual coins (as opposed to coffers or Remodel "coin") and to top it all off it searches two cards at a time with your choice for killing. I suspect most of these boards will require that you win the Pship pile if there is any sort of draw at all.

Innovation, Hermit, Experiment

Innovation makes your first Hermit per turn a trashing Lab that comes with a free Experiment.

I currently imagine mail-mi wearing a dark trenchcoat and a bowler hat, hunched over a bit, toothpick in his mouth, holding a gun in his pocket.  One bead of sweat trickling down his nose.

Necromancer, Cathedral

Whats that? You bought Cathedral and now you have to many good cards in your hand? Don't worry, you can still play the actions.

Treasure Map + City Gate is pretty neat. You are not only guaranteed to connect the Maps early on, you can also defer one of the four Golds to the next turn.

Capitalism + Harvest
Harvest is a great card with Capitalism. It is usually a Gold, but only costs $3. In games with Knights, Castles or Travellers, it often gives you amazing $4. Merchant Ship is similar by the way. It works actually like a Silver and two delayed Peddlers.

Ironworks + Experiment

Just get two or three Ironworks and start running your engine. The only limit is the fact there are only 10 experiments in the game.
