Black Market is ridiculous

Just played an IRL 3 person game. The Kingdom:





And out of that, out of a Kingdom of only terminal actions, I built an Apprentice-Fortress-Tactician-Hamlet-Bridge-Conspirator-Menagerie engine.

My opponents got a Sea Hag and Mountebank (one each) from Black Market, but they didn't do much. Partially because the first play of one opponent's Sea Hag discarded the other opponent's Mountebank.  ;D

Twice I managed to do Apprentice-Fortress. Only once did I manage to use Black Market + Tactician to play a bunch of treasure and then play Tactician.

I wonder how competitive Courtyard+BM would have been here, but that's boring.

Courtyard/BM can certainly win games against Black Market, but isn't going to beat the best pulls from the Black Market deck

I'd open Black Market/Silver, look to pick up a Band of Misfits on the first 5 while looking for a good spot to Mint

Pretty much exactly what I did. Except I didn't get a BoM until later because I needed +Action cards from the Black Market first. I also got a Salvager early. My eventual Mint buy only managed to trash 4 Coppers.
