It's probably pretty easy to utilize Wish to its full extent given how much we have already talked about wishing well.

Oh man. Someone is going to be the first ever person to successfully Wish for a Wish.

LaLight already got that achievement :D

Why does it even give the option? Like, playing with Boons yesterday I had to resist trying to gain Will-o-Wisp with Earth's gift (discard treasure to gain a 4-cost card).

Wishing Well for a Wish is what is being referred to.

Well then why was the first "Wish" capitalized?

Maybe I misremembered how getting the option to gain a Will-O-Wisp came up, but I know I had to not try to gain Imp with Pilgrimage.

So with Possession the Possessor would gain the gold, but the possessed would gain the Hex right?

I wonder how long it'll take someone to need to Wish for a Curse.

Nocturne seems to be developing a smoking sub-theme. I'm not sure I've spotted anyone smoking in the artwork for previous expansions?

If you look really closely at Caravan, you can spot Joe Camel.

Wish is not the easiest thing to pull off quickly enough to be useful (although it was in my Storyteller game).  I think when a Leprechaun grants my wish in real life  :P I don't think he will limit me to 15 or so choices.  I want Wish to let me get any card up to cost $6 in the Dominion universe!  I think I'm house-ruling this one.   8)

So your Leprechauns will operate on the Black Market?

Initial impresions (probably wrong): very niche card. In an engine where you have enough control to play Leprechaun with exactly 7 cards, do you really need it?

My first game with leprechauns had throne room, Hamlet, inheritance, and patrol. Leprechaun was super strong and fast.

I have a hard time imagining it's good if you aren't getting wishes though. The power is in how it singlehandedly provides your payload.

I've not tried it yet, but my instinct that "enough control to play Leprechaun with exactly 7 cards" basically means "playing an engine with at least one village in it".

That's pretty frequent, isn't it? And maybe Leprechaun being in the kingdom is enough of a nudge for you to do it even if you wouldn't have otherwise?

Having now seen Exorcist, I'm not sure why there are 12 Wishes for Leprechaun but only 6 Ghosts for Exorcist (obviously there's no need for more than 6 Ghosts with Haunted Mirror). Wish is an action that is hard to gain, gives +1 Action when played (so it's easy to play), and returns itself to its pile. I assume with 12 Wishes they are much less likely to run out than the Ghosts. Why not, say, 10 Wishes and 8 Ghosts?

Also, it's hardly ever possible to gain more than 1 Wish per turn.

Since the number of points is within a constant factor of the number of city quarters, in the long run we can get (4 - ε) ↑↑ n points in n turns for any ε > 0.

It should be reasonably common for there to be a Throne Room variant around with Leprechaun.

But unless youíre careful, the Leprecaun will also play a prank on you.

I love those pranks where my friends end up miserable and engulfed in a destructive war.

...spin-offs are still better for all of the previously cited reasons.
But not strictly better, because the spinoff can have a different cost than the expansion.

Maybe this explains the art on Envy. A leprechaun did it!
