Counting House without Traveling Fair or Mountebank

Here's a board where I went for Counting House. I got very good shuffle luck, but I still think it was the right move. Can anyone think of a better strategy? I would note that Magpie and Border Village gave significant shuffle control, which made it easier to avoid the dreaded "Counting House on top of the shuffle and now I gotta wade through 6 turns of copper" problem.

game #6795959. Estates, no Colony/Platinum.

This board is like purpose built for Counting House. It has Dominate, which overwhelms Rats / Magpie / Bishop in points, along with Treasure Trove and Magpie for support. Mandarin is basically an event to save you from a bad shuffle.

If it weren't for Dominate it's just either Magpie / TTBM or some Bishop thing.

Dominate in general is probably better with Counting House than people realize. CH is able to generate ridiculous amounts of money under the right circumstances and Dominate gives you at least a little bit of time to create those circumstances for yourself and it's also a way to utilize the massive payload.

I'm not saying that it's automatically good, but it's something to look out for.

Seems like Treasure Trove + stuff Province rush versus a convoluted Doctor/Magpie/Bishop/Rats/Single TT engine.

I'd probably go for the Doctor thing, but I'm not sure which is better
