Muntebank and Swindler
« on: July 26, 2017, 11:50:55 am »

It doesn't seem too important, but on boards where the Copper is almost as bad as the curse, is giving out curses other ways a bad idea? Like would you give a Copper for a Copper w/ Swindler? Certainly I can see a Ruined Village or something, but a Copper is still quite a bit better than a Curse. Of course it depends on what kind of trashing there is and how many turns are probably left, among other factors. But generally would you give a Copper or Curse? For simplicity just say that there is nothing that improves Copper significantly, no Fountain, Coppersmith, etc. Not even Counting House.

EDIT: by extension, could it make sense to change a Curse for a Copper? Assume no Museum or Fairground, that kind of stuff. It seems risky, but are the odds you'll get more Mountebanks through to them worth it ever?

The thinner the opponent is, the more he wants to have exactly one Curse in his deck. But generally I would usually give the Curse.
Bomb, Cannon, and many of the Gunpowder cards can strongly effect gameplay, particularly in a destructive way

Depends how useless the Coppers are, but I think it's pretty rare that you don't give the Curse.

Hermit seems like a decent reason to me, especially if it's the only trasher.
