Which Removed Cards Do You Use IRL?

Clearly this poll only applies to people who own 1e Base and/or 1e Intrigue IRL. I am curious what everyone does in this regard. Any secret Secret Chamber admirers?

The strictly true answer is I don't have enough card sleeves for both my 1e cards and their replacements, so I've retired all of them. For my own enjoyment of the game, I don't miss any of these cards. For teaching purposes I'd be tempted to include a couple of them for a game or two for a lesson on critical card evaluation (i.e. when is Woodcutter better than a Silver? What would it take for Adventurer to be better than a Gold?), but there are other ways to make those points.

Back when I only had Base and Seaside and played quite a few Base only IRL games, before 2nd Editions came out, I got fed up with boring games with lots of dead cards and decided to remove Spy, Thief, Woodcutter, Chancellor, Adventurer, Feast and Bureaucrat (Mine was a candidate as well but apparently people like it). I managed to convince my friends that this made the game far more enjoyable. Now that I have both 1st ed Base and 1st ed Intrigue I don't use any of the removed cards (and I didn't put Bureaucrat back in the box either).

I only have 1st ed. base irl. Haven't played in a while, but I'm partial to all of them but Woodcutter. That's just too plain honestly, surprised it sees so much use. I mean I guess it isn't especially weak among removed cards. But why would I use it? Messenger is that and Chancellor plus the 'gifting' ability, and it's like I use that all the time. At least Thief can be made interesting, w/ good treasure you'd want to steal and not just trash(Bandit.) Spy can be nice w/ Jester and the like. Nothing special ofc but good enough.

Removed cards seem more traditional or something. Why I might want to use Feast when really there isn't any reason to.

I love alt vp and find great hall innocuous, so I've kept it in. I enjoy the surprise and risk factor of tribute so I've kept it. I still have coppersmith, but I honestly don't know why. And I still keep thief around because my nephews are obsessed with it. Also, I pretty much never play competitively irl, so weak cards get used more often.

The card I'm most happy is gone is spy. It was just unbearable to sit and watch people play it over and over only for it to have almost no effect on anything.

They sit in the back of one of my storage binders, but I never use them.

I use Woodcutter and Feast. They're decent enough.

In theory, I still use Coppersmith, but it hasn't come up since it was removed.

Great Hall was always a good acquisition near end game with an extra buy and three coins left. I still keep it in.

I got rid of them all (gave away my first edition sets) and honestly I haven't missed any of them one bit.

I still have spy.

Yeah, it's bad, and it's time consuming, but my friend's daughter thinks it's hilarious to tell all the adults around the table what to do

And by extension, we all love watching her do it. When she actually hits a good card that does make a difference, we'll loudly bemoan the loss for her benefit so she can cackle with glee!

All 12. The fact that they're not in second edition makes no difference at all to me using them.

All of them. Why should I not ? I don't own 2ed, not going to exclude cards just because they were replaced in it.

I only play with a small subset of cards IRL, because carrying my entire Dominion collection around just isn't very practical. I change the setup sometimes (i.e. never because I don't play very often anyway) though.

I own Base 1e, but don't play with them.  The fewer cards to choose from makes up for the more interesting cards that I have.

The only one I kept was Coppersmith, and it has replaced Woodcutter when I teach new players. By far my least favorite 1E card removed was Secret Chamber, so I haven't been playing with that one for a long time.

I kept Saboteur and Coppersmith for being the most interesting.  Using binders, I had room for 2 cards to be saved - though would have been better to keep 1 base 1 Intrigue.  I would like Woodcutter and Thief as well but not enough to stick them in some other set.
