Combo: Donate-market square.

This simple strategy is stronger than hermit/market square and is usually best thing on board when present. It reliably gets one province/turn from turn 5 and plies them out by turn 12-13 and is immune to most attacks.

Strategy is:

turn 1-2: buy market square.

turn 3: If you are lucky to draw market square buy it and donate, otherwise just donate to trigger market squares. Your deck should contain total 5 coppers+golds.

turn 4: Again buy market squares and donate, you want to repay at least 1 debt this turn. Deck should be only golds and market squares.

turn 5: you have 15 to spend and at most 7 debt, buy one province.

turn 6: If opponent didn't mirror buying province you should be able to play at least 2 market squares to buy province, copper and donate and repay 4-7 debt. With mirror its time to province+duchy+copper.

turn 7+: buy province+duchy+coppers to make province-duchy turns more likely insteod of 12 turns.

Funny this just came up in a IRL game yesterday. I got a bunch of Market Squares, then Donated. I played sub-optimally, but I still won by a lot.

To trash with Donate immediately after buying them, duh.

Anyhow I think this combo has been talked about on the forums already and is pretty much a lock for among the best combos. Sometimes you Donate / MS into something else but it has to be very quick to compete with the money version.

You need to repay all 8, you can't buy things with debt.

Previous sentence says to buy ms+donate, obviously repay 1 debt from that donate for repaying 7 debt+province next turn.
